2016 May Favourites

For some reason in my head I still think that 2016 has just started, but here we are pretty much half way through it heading into June! May has brought some seriously nice weather to Edmonton, except for the classic rainy May long weekend. This month I have a few new things that I’ve been loving and also some favourites I’ve been loving for a while.

Let’s start with lip products shall we? I have been trying to collect more of the  Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks. I added the shade “Crush” to my collection this month and I have been loving it. It is a pink nude which is great for every day. This and “Pure Hollywood” have been my go-to picks for the month of May. I also picked up one of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Glosses in “Kristen”. Now I’m not going to lie to you, I originally just wanted it for the name. However the colour is also super pretty. It’s a really pretty brown nude and the formula of these glosses is quickly becoming one of my favourites. They are super pigmented and not at all sticky, I already want more!

For skin care this month I have been trying out a new daytime moisturizer. I picked up the Aveeno Positively Radiant daily moisturizer with SPF 15 and I’ve been loving it. It is lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly. Also, the bonus of an SPF in the Spring and Summer months is always a bonus.

Now onto the face products! I’ve used the NYX Matte Bronzer in “Deep” for a while, but I found it could be a little too dark for me so I picked up the shade “Light” and it’s a perfect match for a natural looking contour. Plus it was super affordable so that’s another bonus! I received the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit from my brother for Christmas and it’s one of my go-to palettes during the week. The products are so finely milled and blendable I honestly just can’t get enough. I would recommend checking out the products in the palette individually since unfortunately this palette is discontinued. Check out all the Hourglass products here! Last but not least, my favourite eyeshadow palette of the moment has got to be the Tartelette in Bloom Palette. I only bought this palette last month but I haven’t really used any palette since! I have done a review on this palette as well as the original Tartelette palette that you can read here.

What products have you been loving lately? Let me know in the comments!
