May Beauty Favorites

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadows
I've talked enough about how amazing these shadows are. I think they're flawless as far as glitter shadows go and they're everything I hoped they'd be. I've been integrating Space Cowboy, the champagne shimmer, into almost every eye look as a super sparkly highlight. It's so versatile and adds a little ~something extra~ to every look.

Nars Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo

I've been wearing the milk chocolatey color all over my lid almost everyday this month. I like to use Nars Galapagos or Urban Decay Toasted in the crease but this Kalahari color goes with almost anything. It's probably my favorite of all my Nars duos.

Urban Decay Build Your Own Palette
I love that the Urban Decay redesigned single shadows pop out of their cases so easily and fit into these palettes. No heat, no magnets, no mess, no crumbling half the pan of shadow while trying to move it into a Z palette. Total simplicity. I mostly love it because this purchase was such a steal. Urban Decay single shadows are between $18-$20 and the empty palettes are $10. However, they sell palettes like this one with a single shadow already in them for $18 AND I got it during a 30% off promotion on beauty.com. I essentially paid $14 for a full size eyeshadow and got the palette totally free.

China Glaze Up and Away! Collection
I've been wearing this collection almost exclusively this month, especially Flyin' High (the blue). I know, I know, pastels? For spring? Groundbreaking. But this is really the quintessential spring nail polish collection and all of these cremes are so happy looking. They just look like sunny, warm weather on your nails.

I've been using a foundation brush instead of my fingers as of late and this one is my current favorite.

Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
I like how subtle this lip color is while still adding a feeling of warmth to your face.

 Hard Candy Nail Polishes
I love Hard Candy's redesigned nail polish line. I'm kind of skeptical about the skinnier bottles - taller bottles are prone to thickening - but I barely care with these kinds of glitters. They're reminiscent of indie polish brands and fraken lines that use big, craft glitter and unique combinations. I like that I can get that look without paying an arm and a leg or dealing with shady sellers like Lynderella.
