My May favorites: BECCA, Exuviance, Hard Candy, IT, Maybelline & more!

04 Jun 2016

Hi everybody! It’s me, Kizzy. You might remember me. πŸ˜€ I’ve been active on Instagram, but pretty much away from my blog for a little while, as you may have noticed. This pregnancy has been kicking my butt! They say that girl pregnancies are generally harder than boy pregnancies and up until 6 months ago, I thought that was just a tale. But I gotta tell you, this pregnancy has indeed been harder! I’ve been experiencing a million issues, most of them I didn’t have when I was pregnant with my son. Nothing too serious, fortunately, but uncomfortable enough to slow me down.

BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette: I haven’t had this palette for all that long, but I had to include it to this palette. It’s beautiful! I think Jaclyn Hill did a great job at creating something that is suitable for most skin tones. πŸ™‚ Read my review here.

Hard Candy Brow Ink in ‘medium dark’: This is a hidden gem, if you ask me; I haven’t heard that many people talking about it. I’ll go into more in a separate post. πŸ™‚
Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in ’35 rebel red’ and ’10’ nude flush’: These are not ‘matte’ as the name might suggest, but very nice nonetheless very pigmented and comfortable on the lips. And very affordable of course! I got these in a box from Influenster.

Exuviance Glycolic Expert Moisturizer: my face loves this stuff! When I found out I was pregnant I had to stop using a lot of my skincare and this is one of the products I switched too. It helps exfoliate and hydrates at the same time.
Hard Candy Fast & Fabulous Makeup Setting Spray: I’ve been trying out new setting sprays and this was one that didn’t disappoint! Like every other Hard Candy product it’s exclusively available at Walmart.

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Serum: To go with my Exuviance moisturizer, I’ve been using this glycolic serum at night. Love it! I wake up with smooth, radiant skin.
BECCA Luminous Blush in ‘Dahlia’ and ‘Tigerlily’: I’ve been using my six new BECCA blushes non-stop now, love them! It’s hard for me to pick a favorite, so I just grabbed these two for this post. See the other shades in this review.
