Hi all! Remember me? I went a little MIA "recuperating" from Las Vegas but I'm back now with some entries that I tried to get out last week but didn't happen. One of those being my May Favorites! I actually recorded a video for my favorites. Then my computer decided to hate me and for whatever reason wasn't recognizing my camera no matter how many times I tried to upload it. So I decided blog post it was. I'm rambling. Let's get to it!

Sneak peek at my favorites!

Essie Set In Stones, Dior St. Tropez & Essie Limoscene
I'm so in love with these three all together in a mani. Limoscene is a bit sheer (I use three coats to get to a milky opacity) but it looks so classy. It also makes me look tan and that's always a plus. Set In Stones is the perfect glitter topper. It's a whole bunch of silver hexes in different sizes. Lastly, Dior St. Tropez is a gorgeous deep turquoise color perfect for your toesies!

theBalm Frat Boy Blush & Bahama Mama Bronzer
Naturally, when these badboys appeared on HauteLook (referral link), I had to buy them. Just about every beauty blogger/vlogger raves about them and they don't disappoint. Frat Boy is a beautiful flushed pink (the same color your cheeks would be if a hottie frat boy asked you out) and Bahama Mama is a matte medium bronzer perfect for contouring for us paler girls. 

Hard Candy Baked Bronzer in Tiki
Another beauty vlogger/blogger fave and I can definitely see why. Hard Candy describes it as a bronzer but it's the most gorgeous highlighter I've found so far for so cheap. I'm the biggest fan of Hard Candy anyway, but if you haven't tried this brand out yet, run to your local Walmart and buy this!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Rockstar
In absolute love with this eyeliner right here. I don't even know where this came from (maybe an Ipsy bag) and then was thrown in the back of a drawer and found again. Guys, this is the smoothest eye pencil I have ever used. It's like butter. I dreaded using eyeliner for the sole reason that I would mess up so easily. It'd either drag and catch in my little wrinkles of my eye or would be too chalky but this, this eyeliner right here, is amazing. I will definitely be buying a full size of this and it's little friends. The color is a crazy blackened eggplant. Sigh. So gorgeous.

Hard Candy Lite Bright Whipped Brightening Concealer
Well, by now you've probably noticed my Hard Candy obsession. Ahem. Another amazing product from them. I can't remember the color but I bought this in the lightest color (pale girl reppin'!). Brightening? Absolutely. Smooth and doesn't settle into the creases? Heck yeah! For $8 (I think), you can't go wrong with this.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded
I'm embarrassed to admit this is my first Color Tattoo despite all the amazing things I've heard about them. Lately, I've been using this as my base for eyeshadows and I can't even begin to describe how much difference having this as my primer makes with eyeshadows. Barely Branded itself is a subtle shimmery nude color and I absolutely love it.

Milani Color Statement Lipsticks in Nude Creme, Flamingo Pose & Sweet Nectar
I blame Nicole Guerriero (Beauty Vlogger). She featured Flamingo Pose (a neon color) and Sweet Nectar (a mandarin orange) in her favorites a few months back and I was hooked. Nude Creme just appeared out of no where ;) I think what I love the most about Milani lip sticks (besides the smell - YUM!) is how smooth they are. They also aren't drying which I like (who doesn't?) because I feel like a lot of my lipsticks have been drying my poor lips out. The colors are just out of this world.

Victoria's Secret Pink Wild At Heart & Spring Break Body Mists
It's not officially summer until VS puts out their summer-themed body sprays. I know, a lot of them are just their core collection in new bottles but I still get all excited. Wild At Heart is a sweet perfume of red passionfruit and musk. Spring Break is a summery hibiscus and passionfruit. Smells soooo good!

TooFaced Loves Sephora Palette
I feel like this should be in my favorites every single month this year - that's how much I love it! I'll be doing a review on this soon (promise!). It comes with 10 amazing eyeshadows, two bronzers, a blush, a small blush brush and TooFaced Shadow Insurance. All the eyeshadows are very pigmented with little fall out. I've completely fallen in love with Shadow Insurance and it makes me want to run out and buy a full size one.
