May Favorites: Top Five Products

I don't know where the month of May went and I can't believe its almost June. I wanted to share with you ladies my favorite products of May. These are basically the top five products I've been reaching for the most and having a love affair with this month.
May Favorites

1. Almay Smart Shade Color Correcting Primer, $13 range
This comes in an easy to use product controlled pump top with the cutest DNA looking design of purple and green colors. The green neutralizes redness while the lavender brightens. This is light weight and non-oily. I haven't had any breakouts or irritations from this. I went from not really knowing much about face primers to owning way more than one person should ever need. But with all my other primers, including much more expensive ones, this is the one I've been reaching for the most lately. Why? Because it visibly works!

Laura Geller is well known for her baked products and I'm espeically loving this one. Swirl your brush to pick up the multitude of colors in this product and apply to your face for an even skintone. This adds just the perfect touch of bronzed color and glow for my fairer skin tone (and also comes in darker shades). This also works well to apply to chest and arm areas to add some color and it has some shimmer to it.

What I really like about these besides the 40 color and design options is the fact that these are real nail polish strips. It gives them a more expensive look than the paper nail strips and I found these to be much easier to file off. They can however be a little harder to correct if you make a mistake, so just be patient & careful. These have great staying power as well.

4. Garnier BB Cream, $12 range
I've really been loving this for the warm weather we've been having. My skin has been fairly cooperative and so I don't need full foundation and I hate the feeling of heavy foundation in the sticky warm weather days. This adds a perfect touch of color and evens out my skin tone while giving me a very natural look. It also contains SPF of 15 so you can feel a little better about your skin out in the sun's rays (although some recommend to wear at least an spf of 30). See my full review here.

I've added a few more of these to my collection which I will be updating my prior post with some swatches. I absolutely absolutely love these. These give the perfect hint of color which you can build if you like. One of the ones I've reached for lately is "fever" which is a very flattering red. I don't think anyone can really go wrong with any of these as all the colors seem to be flattering. These are super moisturizing and have a slight peppermint smell and tingle to them. I would say lasting power is around 2-3 hours, but I'm very tough on my lipsticks. See my swatches here (will be updating soon with 3 more color swatches)

What are your favorite products for May?

Yours in Beauty,
