May Favorites


Another month of favorites and another addition to the vintage cookbook collection.  The Delectable Past is a delightful cookbook of Old World and Early American recipes.

To my favorites!

Caviar Overnight Hair Rescue by Alterna: This super moisturizing hair mask does wonders for my hair.  You massage it in before bed and wash it out in the morning for super soft hair.  Available at Ulta and Sephora.

Illamasqua blusher in Tremble: A beautiful petal pink blusher that I’ve worn nearly everyday this month.  Available at some Sephora stores or Bloomingdales.

Brow Wiz by Anastasia: This is my go-to brow pencil.  I’m on about my third one.  I use the shade Medium Ash.  I love the super fine tip and the fact that it comes with a spooley on the other end.  Available in many shades at Ulta or online.

Murad Renewing Eye Cream: I ran out of my Holy Grail Clarins eye serum and read a great review on this one by Murad.  Absolutely no complaints as it does diminish puffiness.  Amazon has the best price.

LOTION YON-KA Paris: I’ve mentioned before that my aesthetician turned me onto Yon-ka and I love, love this hydrating toner.  I use it every morning and night.  Find a store near you.

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm in Pink Punch: Fantastic drugstore lip balms.  They have many shades but this petal pink is my favorite.  Available for $3.99 at any drugstore.

Smashbox Bronze Lights bronzer: This is a perfect bronzer for pale skin.  I have the shade Sunkissed Matte.  I also use it on my eyes sometimes as a transition color in the crease.  Available at Ulta.

Urban Decay palette: I bought this at Nordstrom Rack a couple of years ago and rediscovered it this month.  I love the color variety.  All the shadows are shimmer.  It’s called the Ammo Shadow Box / palette and can be found on eBay.

JK Jemma Kidd eye color: Sadly, Jemma Kidd Cosmetics has gone out of business.  It was sold at Target for a time which is where I picked up a few eye shadows.  I’ve been using this one in the shade 05 editor.  You can find cheap NIB JK shadows on eBay.

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain: These lip stains are a new launch this month.  At first I didn’t like the texture but I’ve gotten used to it.  The color doesn’t last very long despite what the name suggests, but it is a moisturizing lip stain.  I have this coral color, Cannes Crush.  Available at drugstores for $9.99.
