MONTHLY FAVORITES: MAY 2014

June is here, which means that it's time for me to share some off my favorite products off the last month with you. I know this post is up a little later than usual, but better late then never right? Let's get started! :-)

♥ Monthly Favorites: May 2014. 

 ♥ Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. 

The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette has been the only eyeshadow palette that I have been reaching for over and over again during the month off May. Naked Basics consists off six eyeshadows, one shimmery shade and five matte shades. I have mostly been using W.O.S, Naked 2 and Faint, which are my favorite shades from this palette! :-) 

 ♥ Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. 

 ♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation. 

Another favorite for the month off May has been the Fit Me Foundation by Maybelline. I have been using this foundation for a couple off years now and I really like it. It's very easy to apply, has nice coverage and it blends flawlessly into the skin. The consistensy is not too thick or too thin, just the way I like it. I love using the Beauty Blender to blend out the foundation, it gives the skin the most natural and flawless looking finish. I'm also a big fan off the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, both the foundation and concealer work amazingly together! :-) 

 ♥ NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm. 

In the beginning off May, I decided to go through my makeup collection and pick out different products that I felt needed some love and attention again. That's when I re-discovered my love for the NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm. Orgasm is a pretty peachy coral with golden shimmer. It's one off my favorite blushes in my makeup collection, so happy that I re-discovered my love for it. Highly recommend that you check out this blush if you haven't done that already. It's gorgeous and lovely for the Summer! :-) 

 ♥ NARS Cosmetics Blush in Orgasm. 

 ♥ Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel. 

I picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel in the beginning off May and I have been using it since. It's really easy to apply, it looks very natural, and it keeps the brows in place throughout the day. I used to use the Studio Eyebrow Treat & Tame from e.l.f. Cosmetics. I liked that brow gel a lot, but it did fade away during the day which is the reason why I wanted to try another brow gel. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel stays put throughout the day and the color doesn't fade away, which means that I don't have to keep re-applying it thoughout the day. Love, love, LOVE this product so far! Have you tried it? :-) 

 ♥ Beauty Blender. 

I have been using the Beauty Blender for a couple off years now and I'm totally obsessed with it. It's so easy to use! It blends out foundations and other liquid/creamy products like a boss. It gives a very natural and flawless finish too, which looks beautiful. Need to get my hands on a new one soon, mine is looking a bit sad at the moment, LOL! :-) 

♥ Grey's Anatomy, photo credit HERE.
I like to include TV shows in my monthly favorites as well! The TV show that I have been keeping up with in May is Grey's Anatomy. If your not familiar with the show, it's a drama centered around the personal and professional lives of five surgical interns and their supervisors. I'm almost finished with season ten, only have a few episodes left. I have been a fan off the show since the beginning. I'm enjoying the new season a lot, can't wait for season eleven to start! Do you still watch Grey's Anatomy? What TV Shows are your favorite? Any recommendations? Thank you :-)  

What products have you been loving during the month off May? Do you like it when I include personal favorites like TV shows, fashion favorites, etc in my monthly favorites posts? :-)
Love, Christine♥

  5. Have you tried any of the cheaper versions of the beauty blender? and would you recommend the real one or do the dupes do pretty much the same job? x

    1. I haven't tried any off the cheaper dupes yet. I just got the Real Techniques sponge, looking forward to trying that one out. It's a lot cheaper than the beauty blender, heard great things about it :-) x

    2. The Real Techniques one is amazing! I own three of these and I gotta say I love them even more than the original. :) xo

  6. I really need to start a makeup sponge like the Beauty Blender. My favorite foundation option is my Hourglass No 2 brush or my MAC 130, depending on product :) x

    1. You should give the Beauty Blender a go, it works great with almost every foundation that I have tried. Heard great things about the Real Techniques sponge as well. It's a lot cheaper than the Beauty Blender too :-) x

  7. Lovely post! :-) Grey's Anatomy is my absolute favourite out of all the TV Sieries I watch (and I watch A LOT *lol*). I've been watching since the day it aried here in Germany and was never disappointed! Season 10 was absolutely epic! How far along are you, I don't want to give too much away but the finale is amazing! I believe season 11 is going to be even bigger!! haha oh man you got me started on a topic I could talk about forever! *lol*

    xo, Marie

    1. Thank you so much Marie, I'm glad you enjoyed it :-) I finished season 10 a couple off days ago, SO excited for season 11! What other shows are you loving? Would love a few recommendations :-) x

    2. So sad that Christina left isn't it? :-(
      Oh well out of the ones I watch I'd definitely recommend Hart Of Dixie. It's with Rachel Bilson who played Summer in O.C. California. She is playing a New Yorker Doctor and when her father died she found out he left her part of his practice in a very small town in Texas. And when she visits this city it's basically a whole new world for her. And with time some serious romances are developing and a little bit of a love triangle. It's really catchy, I was hooked after the third episode. It's kind of similar to Grey's Anatomy but without all the drama and people dying at the end of the seasons :D I also love Scandal a lot! It's created by Shonda Rhimes (the one who created Grey's) and just as dramatic and epic as Grey's. It's not about doctors but still great. And another is 'How To Get Away With Murder'. It's also by Shonda Rhimes and hasn't even aried yet but I know, just from seeing the trailer, I'm gonna LOVE it! :) xo
