Las Favoritas De Mayo! (2012)

My first favorites post! ^__^

May was filled with bipolar weather (warm one day and cold the next!) and my allergies were absolutely nuts. My skin has been behaving horribly both from the weather as well as starting a new skincare regime (will go into that in another post) and my eyes have been super sensitive from my allergies. As a result I've been trying to keep my makeup to a bare minimum to foundation and blush and no eye makeup. It's been all about blushes and brushes for the month of May. I also have an in depth video about each product at the bottom! It would mean a lot if you watched and provide feedback/criticism!

NYX Lipstick and Lipliner in Sweet Pink and Fuchsia

NYX Blush in Taupe (Contour), NYX Blush in Glow, and NARS Blush in Luster

Forgot about the Sephora + Pantone Blush in Desert Flower (Underneath Luster)

Real Techniques Brushes (From Top to Bottom): Contour, Buffing, Pointed Foundation, and Stippling

Xen Tan for self Tanning and Airbrush Legs by Sally Hansen for evening out my legs

Top: Benefit Badgal Mascara / Bottom: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Fav Foundation For the Month: BareMinerals Matte in the shade Light (Great for sensitive and acne prone skin!)


  1. That lipstick has a gorgeous colour! And damn, I wish I could get my hands on the real techniques brushes in Belgium, but no ):

    1. Oh no that sucks that they aren't there yet! /:

  2. Really want to try out those makeup brushes but i'm still undecided^^

  3. I've heard such good things about Bad Gal, I definitely would like to try it. Love Real Techniques brushes, the buffing brush is my favourite brush of all the brushes I own :) Glow is really pretty and I heard Taupe is a great contouring shade.

  4. The lipstick looks so gorgeous, I love the color! I've wanted to try the NYX Blush in Taupe for so long, it seems to be perfect for contouring.

  5. Ooooooh, I want to try out the real techniques brushes so badly! I love your blog by the way. It would mean a lot if you couls top by mine and have a read xoxo Genevieve

  6. i JUST received my order of real techniques brushes. i'm so excited to try them out! and wow you have quite a nice stash there :)

  7. Dang girl, your skin is flawless on camera!

  8. Love all your beauty picks. I'm dying with jealousy at the sight of your Real Techniques brushes. I've had my eyes on them for months now. I've heard so many good reviews about the Buffing brush for blending foundation. I need it in my life. Will definitely pick it up this August I can't live without it any longer. I decided I have had enough waiting around for it to magically drop on my lap because I know that is impossible. Although that would be great right? If all the beauty stuff we want magically appear right in front of us. I know it would make me a one happy beautiful girl . haha :)

  9. Luster is one of my favorite NARS blushes, ever. It just warms up the skin the perfect amount!
