May 2013 Favourites

Happy June everyone! I feel like this year is just flying by, I can't believe it's already June! It's finally starting to feel like Summer here in Ottawa, and I've been loving the warmer weather. Now, onto my favourite products for the past month...

MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge #20* (reviewed here) - I've been absolutely loving this formula, and the baby pink shade is beautiful. This formula is long wearing yet still creamy and comfortable on the lips. 


Inglot Palette - I bought an Inglot quad while I was in New York earlier in May, and I've been reaching for it almost every day. I bought the shades 12, 154, 40, and 48. These shadows are creamy, very pigmented, and I love the shimmer in each of them. There aren't any stores in Ottawa, but the next time I'm in Montreal I'll definitely be picking up another quad!



Lush Rub Rub Rub (reviewed here) - This body scrub smells incredible, very citrusy and summery! This formula is very moisturizing, and perfect for prepping for self-tanner. Rub Rub Rub is also quite gentle, so I think even those with more sensitive skin could use this one. 


Benefit Sun Beam (reviewed here) - Now that the Summer sun is shinning, I've been reaching for my bottle of liquid bronzer/highlighter a lot more. I took this on my trip to NYC, and I added a few drops to my foundation everyday. Sun Beam gives your skin a gorgeous glow and a hint of colour. 


Lush Mask of Magnaminty (reviewed here) - I've been using this mask twice a week, and I love the results! This mask is perfect for anyone with troubled skin. I like using it to clear up the occasional break-out, and to keep my skin clear of any imperfections. This mask also doubles as a great exfoliator!

MAC Syrup - I bought this lipstick in NYC, and I've really been loving it! Syrup is a Lustre finish, and is very creamy on my lips. The mauvey purple shade looks very natural, and is very easy to wear.


MAC Star Nova Lustreglass - This was another New York purchase, and I've really been loving layering Star Nova over MAC's Syrup. The formula of this lip gloss is very creamy, and not sticky. This is my first lustreglass from MAC, and I already want more! The shimmer in Star Nova is so pretty, and looks gorgeous! 


Garnier Olia (reviewed here) - I completely changed my hair in May, and I've been loving this new change! I chopped off 14 inches and donated it to Locks of Love, and then I coloured my hair a nice dark golden brown. This was the first hair dye that I've used that had no awful scent to it! I loved the oils in this formula, as it left my hair feeling smooth and soft. My hair is starting to lighten, so I'll need to re-dye my hair in the next few weeks.


So those are the products that I've been loving recently! Leave me a comment letting me know what you've been loving lately :) Do we have any products in common?


  1. Your Inglot palette is so pretty. I really want to try Inglot eye shadows. Wonder if they would ever be available in Canada.

    1. Thanks! They are available in Canada! You can order through their Facebook page, and they have stores in Quebec :)
