May Favourites


I haven't done a favourite post in yonks! Even though I did wanted to make posts, I didn't have enough favourites to grant a post for the month.

This month is different, and it might be because I have shopped in Quebec City and got lots of new products!

First, I loved the Maybelline Color Elixir. Pictured here is Blush Essence, but I also love Hibiscus Haven but right now I cannot find it! Those are just buttery and have nice color payoff. The smell is also good, better than their L'Oréal counterpart.

I have also liked the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Addis Ababa. I love brights and it's hard to make it brighter than this! It doesn't translate as bright on the picture, but it's a blue-toned fuschia, perfect with a high bun!

You've seen the Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil in my last Current Skincare Routine but I still wanted to include it here because I love it so much! I hate taking off my makeup, I guess it doesn't help when I try to finish crappy product. But this makes me almost love it!

I had a bad breakout at the beginning of the month as I was dealing with stress, the time of the month and also leftovers from the month before. I bought a Uriage kit for combination/oily skin as I've heard good  things of the brand before. I haven't tried all the products in the kit yet but I love the Uriage Hyésac Bi-Stick. On one hand it has a drying liquid that you put on your spots. The other one is a concealer. I'm not a big fan of the concealer, as the colour is not really matching my tone right now but I love the drying liquid. I put this in the morning and in the evening when I take off the makeup I could see that the spots where less angry.

I didn't really use the concealer part because I also prefer my 2True 3 in 1 Concealer. 2True is a brand I purchased while in the UK and I can tell it is similar to the famous Collection one, only slightly cheaper. It is now finished but if I could purchase it here I would. For reference my shade is 3.

As a non-beauty favourite, I enjoyed reading and (watching the pictures) of the Canada's Style at Home. I love decorating and I read blogs about the subject but I feel that decor magazines are not catering to me to style. They usually have those big house decorated by stylists and they don't feel lived-in. This is not the cas with the ones featured in this magazine. They actually present lots of Canadian home décor bloggers and they have colorful style, which I adore!
