The month of May has been a busy one for me. I'm actually surprised that I have beauty products to talk about because I wore the exactly same makeup for half of the month and rekindled my love for a beloved MAC lipstick. For the other half I discovered some new products.
L'Oreal La Palette Nude 1
Living in Canada I didn't think I would find this palette at my local drugstore because new launches can take a little longer to get here. I'm glad I found this palette because it looks similar to high end palettes. I seriously think the texture of the eyeshadows and their performance is very similar to Urban Decay. There can be some fallout but once you tap your brush it's all good. The lasting power of these shadows is decent with a primer. It is pricy for drugstore but it's a fraction of the cost of a high end eyeshadow palette. I'm pleased with this palette.
Milani Powder Blush in Romantic Rose
I bought this blush purely based on the fact that it's in the shape of a rose. The colour is a neutral, subtle dusty rose shade. It's more pink than Tarte Exposed. It lasts all day on my skin. I find it to be a little powdery though. I like that it's matte but I think you need to wear a highlighter with this blush because it can give your cheeks a flat look. It's a good choice if you love neutral pink shades.
Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue
I've been stalking both of the Sephora stores near me for the past few months waiting for this product to arrive. Last week, I finally saw it in store and snatched it up. It gives a light coverage than can be built up to medium without looking cakey. It's a good base when you don't want to wear much makeup but want to even out your skin-tone. It has spf 30 which makes it great for summer. When I wear think my skin looks healthy and glowy. When set with powder it doesn't make me look oily. I got the shade Opal which seems to match me perfectly. It's really hard to find a good tinted moisturizer. I may have found a winner for me but we'll see how it performs for the rest of summer.
During my internship this month I wanted to wear the most natural makeup possible and I found myself reaching for Syrup most of the time. (When I wasn't wearing Syrup I was wearing Brave). What I love about this lipstick is that it's the perfect MLBB shade for me. It's a beautiful mauvy pink. It's like my lip colour but 10x better. It gives my lips some colour and shine without being bold. It's subtle but it pulls any look together. This is actually my second tube of this, which proves how much I love it. I still recommend it to everyone.
