Monthly Beauty Favourites - May 2023

 Here's what I've been loving this past month:

Last year I started just picking any number of products I'm loving, instead of trying to find 5 each month (which I did previously!) So, whatever number of products I'm loving, that's what I will be sharing. 

I've been slower at using and trying out new products, so naturally my Favourites have been on the smaller side lately (and I'm totally fine with that) - here's a closer look at what I've been loving this month:

Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil in Joy ~ $26.00 CAN. An innovative gel-to-oil formula that starts glossy and leaves lips tinted while staying comfortable—never sticky—all day.

Okay, this is a pretty hyped up product and I get why - it's basically a mix of a tint and an oil with a lovely bright hint of colour and good wear. It goes on a little gelly but then absorbs and wears like an oil until it settles in to a tint. You can see it on me here - I think this will be a go-to this Summer for me! 

E.L.F. Lip Lacquer in Black Cherry ~ $4.00 CAN. Pucker up to e.l.f. Cosmetics’ lush Lip Lacquer, loved for its ultra-shine finish without the sticky feel. Thanks to its conditioning, vitamin-infused formula, your lips will feel cushion-soft and hydrated all day long. 

I wasn't sure this was a product that I was going to love, but I'm pleasantly surprised - lip lacquer to me almost sounds sticky or too much, but overall this wore like a gloss but with a nice high shine. I love the shade and found it very flattering - I put it on most mornings now just to give a basic work look a little more life! I will have a review of this one soon with some other new ELF products! 

Bio Sculpture Gemini polish in polish in Belle of the Bop ~ $20.50 CAN. A must-have for 2022! This playful trendy retro neon pink just bops, sings and shines.

I've actually had these neon polishes since last year and I can't believe I haven't shared them on here - the yellow and pink from this Live Life Loudly collection are fantastic! They are so bold and look amazing on the nails - can't wait to use them more this Summer! 

Body Glide Original Anti Chafe Balm Stick ~ $14.99 CAN. Stop Chafed, Irritated and Raw Skin: Forms a dry, invisible barrier against rubbing caused by clothing, footwear, or skin. Long-Lasting Anti-Chafe Protection: Apply before you get dressed on inner thighs, neck, arms or anywhere skin is being rubbed for a chafe free life.

Speaking of products needed for Summer (can you sense a theme here - prepping for warm weather now), I have been loving this. Listen, I've been a long time user of deodorant on my inner thighs to stop my powerful legs from rubbing together and it's worked fine, until this. Deodorant is almost to creamy or seems to melt a little more, this is similar ingredients with a more solid texture so it glides on, but actually lasts longer and doesn't feel too slippery. If you need something like this, would highly recommend! 

What were you loving this month?!
