May Favourites & Summer Beauty Wishlist!
By Tina A. - June 06, 2011
It's been a while since I've shared with you my "current favourites", aka the products I've reached for the most over the past few weeks!
So, for the month of May, my go-to products have been:
1. NARS Orgasm blush.
Yes, yet again. NARS Orgasm is a frequent pick of mine for these monthly lists and with good reason: it adds a lovely peachy pink glow to my cheeks with a few swipes. The fact that it's infused with a golden sheen also means that I don't have to bother with a separate highlighter - score! In fact, Orgasm has been my daily blush for a good 2-3 months now and I can easily see myself sticking to it for a while (or a lot) longer (btw I can barely see a dent after all this time)!
2. MAC Dalliance eyeshadow.
This shade was a part of the Peacocky collection that MAC released a few months back and that consisted of a rather large selection of eyeshadows in the "Mega Metal" formula. Dalliance is a light golden shade with a unique greenish/grey undertone to it. It can photograph anywhere from a gold to a platinum shade to a greyish/greenish champagne if that makes sense. I use it as a wash of colour all over the lid, along with some black eye kohl smudged on the upper lashline - that was pretty much my simple eye look for the month of May.
3. MAC Viva Glam VI Special Edition lipglass.
I should probably toss this already, but since there's not much left in it anyways, and in the name of Glossout 2011, I figured why not try and finish it instead (I'm developing a thing which puts me off wasting things). Very flattering pale pink shade, not quite nude, but a touch more pink, it's perfect for every occasion. Shades like these should be a part of any collection in my opinion!
4. Shu Uemura Pale Blue nail polish.
Don't ask me if Shu Uemura still makes this or what is the number equivalent or where can you get it, because I have no idea (so much for a beauty blogger huh)! I've purchased it ages ago as part of a trio of mini Shu polishes. Pale Blue is basically a pale baby blue shade that has the most subtle silver shimmer I've ever seen in a nail polish! It appears to be a creme, but it's not! Sadly though it's a three coater, the only flaw in my eyes!
5. Vichy Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water.
It's basically water in a bottle, enriched with mineral salts and trace elements, or so the brand says. All I know is that it's a nice product, it's cooling, refreshing and very soothing! Beware though, because with a product like this, you might end up spritzing your face every 30 minutes (yes, that feeling of fresh skin can get quite addictive)!
But that was all part of May (as in last month of spring or..fall if you take into account what the weather's been like here)!
A couple of blushes wouldn't be bad, especially if one of them is Benefit Bella Bamba which I've been dreaming about for too long now! I'm also looking forward to the new MUFE Aqua Liner, that's been raved about by many! And since you're probably already familiar with my predictable neutral eyes and nude lips, I've added a neutral palette (Physicians Formula Baked Sands) and Viva Glam Gaga 2!
What else do I need?
What's on your summer lists? And what have you been loving lately? :)
