May Favorites


Hi guys!

It’s that time again for my monthly favorites!  


Essie's Come Here

This is part of the new Resort collection (along with First Timer below) and this is pretty much my new nail polish obsession. This was actually the color that I wasn't going to get. I knew I wanted First Timer and In the Cab-ana, but this color was one I went back and forth on. I'm so glad I picked it up though, because it's the most gorgeous coral-red color I've ever worn! You know when you are wearing nail polish and you keep admiring your nails? Yeah, that was me with Come Here. 
Essie's First Timer
So I was on the search for the Resort Collection just because of this color. I'm currently in love with mints and turquoises and this looked absolutely perfect. However, nowhere had it! I went to 3 Ultas in three different cities (Denver, Fort Collins, and Colorado Springs), and they were sold out. Targets weren't carrying them (at the time, now of course they have them). But one day when I was across town, I spotted a Walgreens I don't normally go to and thought I'd take a look. They had it! I was so happy! And thankfully after all that searching, this color was perfect! I love it and think it's the perfect color for spring and summer time. 
S Factor Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner
Guys, I have a new favorite shampoo and conditioner! I love this stuff so much! First of all, it smells amazing! Like strawberries or some sort of really sweet amazing fruit! It's literally the best smelling shampoo and conditioner I've ever smelled. Besides the amazing smell, it makes my hair super smooth and silky, which is awesome for summer and whenever I want to wear my hair straight. I'm so in love with this. Unfortunately it pretty much costs an arm and a leg, but at Ulta you can get this buy 2 get 1 free, so I also got the smoothing lusterizer too, which is also amazing when it comes to easing away freeze and making my hair extra smooth. I'm so in love with this!
Bath and Body Works Summertime S'mores Candle
I love the new summer candle line from Bath and Body Works (Watermelon lemonade and Strawberry Picnic are amazing!), but this candle is definitely my favorite! I love Marshmallow Fireside, a candle that usually appears in the fall, so it was nice to get my  hands on this to enjoy earlier in the summer. It smells so sweet and amazing!
MAC Studio Fix Powder
So I found my go to summer face product! I had been using the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, but I wanted a little heavier coverage. Plus my skin has been majorly oily lately so I wanted to try this out. I love it! In combination with my Urban Decay De-Slick spray, this gives me fantastic coverage, stays all day long. Even without touchups! I love it! It hasn't broken me out either, which is awesome! I know people aren't always huge fans of powder foundation, but I think if you have oily skin, it's a summer must!
L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black 
As I reviewed previously, this is my current mascara favorite. I love how full, voluminous, and defined it makes my lashes. I also love how it builds effortlessly and quickly too. No clumps or goopiness either, which is even better. I can definitely see this becoming a go-to mascara in my collection for a long time. 
Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Rollerball
It was like Christmas the other day. I was unpacking my perfume and when I went to remove my bottle of Daisy perfume, I found two rollerballs and a lotion! I knew that I got a big set for my birthday, but I had forgotten all that I got a rollerball in Daisy Eau So Fresh, a perfume that I have been lusting over lately! It was the best discovery ever! I love this scent a lot. It's lighter, fresher, and I think even more floral-y than the original Daisy and so perfect for spring and summer!
Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere Hand Cream
My hands have been ridiculously dry lately and it seems like I have tried every lotion out there and nothing changes. So I went to the old standby Shea Cashmere line that I love at Bath and Body Works. I love the scent of this line and seriously, it's the only lotion I can stand because it doesn't feel oily or heavy at all. I bought the little mini travel size, but I'll probably be running out to buy the full size body lotion soon.

Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray

I absolutely love this stuff! I recently wrote a first impressions post about De-Slick and raved about it. It has worked wonders for my oily skin and my makeup, as well as for my new favorite powder from MAC. I honestly didn't believe in makeup setting sprays before trying this, but I love it! I've even already repurchased one for when I run out!

MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul

This is my first MAC blush and I'm very impressed. Not only is the color absolutely beautiful and perfect for summer, but it's also extremely long-lasting. I think it's the perfect summer blush color!

Simple Eye Makeup Remover Pads

I've been really loving these little pads to remove my eye makeup. They are great at removing every inch of mascara, eyeliner, and eyeshadow, without making my eyes burn or water. That's a huge thing, let me tell you! Seriously, you should try these!
