Favorites: May 2011

Hello everyone! I'm sharing with you my monthly favorites for the month of May. Some of the products in the list are from my recent Sephora haul, and some others are rediscovered products that I have been reaching for almost everyday. Here they are:

For foundation I have been loving Guerlain Parure Extreme  in shade #3. This foundation is definitely full coverage but it feels really light on my skin. The consistency of it is very liquidy and very easy to work with. I had many formal events this month and I love wearing this for these special occasions when I don't want to do touch ups throughout the night. These foundation is long lasting and I don't even need to set it with powder. LOVE IT.

For blush I have been reaching two products (or three) that really complement each other. One of them is MAC Cremeblend Blush in Something Special and on top of that I have been wearing MAC Mineralized Blush in Happy Together. I love how these products look together and I have to admit, I never wore creme blush before, but I am pleasantly surprised with the result. I also like how layering cream blush and powder blush look and lasts.

For eye shadows I have been reaching out for a long time favorite, my Dior Holiday Collection Palette. I purchased it maybe two years ago as a Christmas present to myself and unfortunately it was limited edition. I love how shimmery and buttery these shadows are. Dior shadows are known for their shimmer and distinctive feel on your lids.
The other palette that I have been loving is the NARS Cap Ferrat. I have been using it by itself or in conjunction with the Dior one. I used the gold and brown shades from the Dior palette on my lid and I used the middle blue shade of the NARS palette in my lower lash line. Just gorgeous!


Another item from my last haul is the Smashbox Double Ended Eyeliner. One end is a highlighter and the other one is a matte ivory shade for your inner rim. They have been working very well for me, I like the fact that the inner rim color is not a bright white color, it's very subtle vet yet noticeable.

And last but not least, the lip combo that I've been wearing lately is NARS Honolulu Honey Lipstick and NARS Chihuahua Lip gloss. These two make the perfect nude for my skin tone, it is more of a peachy nude. Honolulu Honey can be worn by itself but I can't help it, I'm a gloss girl.

From L-R: Honolulu Honey L/S, Chihuahua L/G and the third shade is a combination of both.

That's all I have for you this month. I hope you are having a wonderful summer!!
See you next time
