Strikingly Sweet Mays


What exactly is the plural of a month? Do you just add an "s"? Mays, Octobers? 
Is it Januaries or Januarys, is it Mays or Maies?
Now I digress, I came to talk about my May favourites, that is my favourite beauty, or skincare, products that I've used for the month of May! 
I use a lot of similar products day to day, which rarely change, so sometimes these lists are hard to compile as I have think long and hard of what I truly enjoyed this month apart from others. 
Does that ever happen to you? You just love so many products that it's hard to choose monthly favourites?

Left to Right: Smashbox Under Eye Hydrating Primer, Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy, Josie Maran Argan Oil (sample size!), Cuccio Colour in Texas Rose, Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Cream in Pink Lady, Korres Wild Rose Brightening and Refining Buff Cleanser (sample; daily exfoliator).

Same order as first picture. 

Smashbox Under Eye Hydrating Primer
I'm sure I've mentioned this primer before, since as someone with some hardcore under eye circles this helps my delicate under eye skin stay hydrated and keeps my concealer in place. I dont think I can live without this anymore! So happy I found it. 

Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy
When I asked my sister to get me the Tipsy blush from Tarte, I envisioned the amazonian clay powder blush instead I got the cheek stain! It was a happy accident though, since this gives me a beautiful coral flush against my light olive skin. 

 Josie Maran Argan Oil (sample size!)
I received a sample size of this in a Topbox recently. I was a little off-put by an "oil" product on my hair, skin, face etc. A couple weeks ago, I started moisturizing my face with this oil at nighttime, and it really has worked wonders. My face is a little less oily in the T zone area and has seemed to be clearing up any little blemishes that might pop up! Love it. 

 Cuccio Colour in Texas Rose
The colour of pastel pink pops against my skin and looks great with my "squoval" nails. I've also been wearing this colour for about 7 days now and hardly a chip with no topcoat

Buxom Big and Healthy Lip Cream in Pink Lady
Saw these on EssieButton's blog and youtube channel, I decided to go to Sephora and try these out. Pink Lady really caught my attention, as it turned my lips into these bright pink perfect pouty icicles. If you're looking for a super gloss look, try out the Big and Healthy Lip Creams! I'll definitely be going back for more. 

Korres Wild Rose Brightening and Refining Buff Cleanser (Sephora sample)
I got a sample of this from Sephora on my visit and quest to find a gentle but very efficient exfoliator for my face! I always find that my face can get a bit dull without proper exfoliation. Lush's Ocean Salt was far too harsh, both for the formula and the super chunky salt crystals. I really like this cleanser as it exfoliates gently and brightens my skin without leaving it dry after the cleanse. 
Must. Purchase. Full-size.

What did you ladies think of these favourites? What are you favourites products for this month?
