May’s Most Loved

May was a crazy busy month for me and when i wasn’t working on posts I was counting down the days til June. There are so many exciting things coming up in Hamilton this month that I am bursting! May was also a month of new discoveries that I can’t wait to share with you.

Essie’s Go Ginza: I have never really been one for the colour purple in nail polish so I do not have many in my collection, it was only recently that I started to enjoy tones of lilac and pale purple. I have a bottle of Lilacism and I absolutely love it but I found that I was wanting something a little less blue. Then I discovered Go Ginza and fell in love. It is the perfect pale musky lilac shade that just looks stunning on.

Essence’s Love Letter Polish in Rosy in Love: Before this, I had not tried anything from Essence. One day I stumbled upon a bin of reduced items at my local drugstore and picked up one of almost everything. Among that, was this polish. I immediately tested it out and was seriously impressed! The shade is the perfect rosy pink and the formula is a dream. It has become one of my favourite polishes in my entire collection!

Kit Crease Shadow Blending Brush: Now this is a gem! I am always searching for more affordable makeup brushes because not everyone can find or afford the more popular brands, so while I was in Rexall about a month ago I decided to test out their store brand Kit. This brush amazed me, it is hands down the best blending brush I own. I prefer it over my brushes from MAC and The Balm., and the best bit it was only $9.99!

Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture Body Cream in Sweet Pea: I have had this lotion before and I always seem to go back to it when summer rolls around. It is a very lightweight lotion that sinks in quickly without leaving a film but it is also incredibly moisturizing. I love this specific scent for summer because it is light and floral and it mixes well with any perfume.

So those are my May favourites, what have you been loving this month?

      Thank you so much Ziva! Sweet Pea is very sweet and floral, it's described as pink petals, juicy rasberry and pear!
