Goodbye May, Hello June! May Favourites~

Eeeep, when did June come by?! I cannot believe nearly half a year has gone by already >.< 

Time to do another favourites post, methinks. I don't think I can do a fave post monthly, but I'll try for every 2 or 3 months! It's because I tend to stick to the same old faves, so it'd be boring to have the same products feature all the time. 

Actually I think that this faves post should be titled April-May Beauty Faves! As I've been using and loving the majority of these products the last two months. 

Benefit Benetint (reviewed here)

Perfect for creating cherry bitten, gradient lips paired with Etude's Cherry Tint. I use this on the inner section of my lips to create that 'just sucked on a cherry popsicle' look keke. 

The bottle is tiny, but since a little goes a long way I should have a few more months of usage yet!

Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in #PK001 Cherry (reviewed here)

An oldie but a goodie in my collection - this tint is not your typical stain tint. It's more milky in formula, so it's not long wearing. But I like it because the colour makes my lips look sweet and pink.

The more you apply the more neon the shade goes though, so I normally stop at one or two applications. 

And I love the sweet cherry scent too!

Just the Cherry tint on my lips

NYX Lip Cream in 05 Antwerp

I bought 3 of these lip creams on a shopping trip with a friend a while back, who recced these to me. Haha, she's been waiting for me to review these! Sorry for the wait A, I promise I'm working on it! Every time I take pics of these the lighting was crap, or I had a massive zit on my nose, or my face looked stupid...

But anyway I'm so glad that I ended up getting these because I really like the formula of these - creamy yet matte. A lot of matte lippies make my lips look and feel gross and dry, but these don't!

And can I say how much I love the sweet scent? It reminds me of cake and other desserts <3

Sanctuary Spa Facial Oil (reviewed here)

Another oldie that I've rediscovered. When I'm super lazy at night I'll skip all my skincare and only apply a few drops of this to my face before bed. And I find the earthy kind of scent quite soothing lol. 

Tony Moly Cat's Wink Powder

Another product I've had for ages - it's not just a cute pact, the powder's actually really nice too. It feels almost buttery to the touch, and is nice and fine so it's my go to pact for going over bb creams.

Essence Quattro Quad in 05 To die for

Love this! Super affordable, and perfect for everyday wear. I'm in love with the second shade <3

You can never go wrong with a neutrals quad! ^^ 

Wearing the second shade on my lids

This is particularly good because it's small and compact, decent quality, and super affordable. 

Essence Silky Touch Blush in Babydoll

Not the sweet pink the name suggests, but still a pretty rosy shade! The pigmentation's great, the powder so fine and silky - good buy overall! 

Essence Metal Glam eyeshadow in 07 Golden Up

A nice change from a neutral shade on the lids ^^

I love patting a light layer of this on my lids to add a bit of sparkle to my everyday makeup! Subtle but pretty on it's own. 

Wearing Golden Up on my lids - no primer, patted on by fingertip

The metallic sheen would be more obvious if layered over a base shade, or applied with a damp brush. But I like a more softer effect, so that's why I only apply it sparingly on my lids~

Swatches of Tony Moly pact, Dollface, Golden Up
Layered the powder pact quite heavily since I didn't know if it would show up.

Hehe, seems like Essence featured quite a bit in this post!

And this post ended up quite long 0.o - almost like a whole bunch of mini reviews instead of a faves post. But I thought it might be helpful! And I probably won't thoroughly review most of these products anyway (asides from the NYX lip creams), so that's why I went into detail here. 

Hope you enjoyed - thanks for reading!

  1. A lot of Essence products! :o I'm gonna have to drop by the drugstore to check them out hehe.

  2. So many essence products hehe. I really need to get the eyeshadows they're cheap and affordable >. <

  3. lovely favorites! it is unbelievable how time flies, right??
    I have the Essence Quad as well and use it regularly ^^ Have you tried essence nail polishes? they are great! :-D

  4. I'm in love with the Etude house cherry tint and the Tony Moly Cats wink powder! they were already on my wishlist but I know how awesome they are. thanks!:D
    That essence quattro Quad looks like one I had ages ago (then it was more sqaure quad :P) But i'm am loving those colors. goes with everything :)

  5. Great faves! I really want to get a lip tint to put in the inside of my lips too, but korean cosmetics are hard to find in my state.

  6. Nice favourites! The Essence Metal Glam eyeshadows have been my favorites too. They are so affordable yet the quality is so good! :D

  7. I've been making the most of having NYX around too. Picked up that shade and a really gorgeous dark red.

  8. I have only tried one product from essence- the eyebrow gel and I didn't like it. It seems like the other products are worth checking out though, seeing they're quite prominent in this post! I should check them out ;)

  9. I liked the lippies ~~

  10. Yep, I was surprised when I gathered my faves and saw so many Essence ones :P
    But yep, it's a really decent budget brand!

  11. Hehe, I didn't even realised til after I gathered all my faves! But it's such a good budget brand!

  12. I know! I wish time wouldn't fly by too quickly >.<
    I have tried one of the essence polishes in a nude colour - I was really pleased with them!

  13. I'm definitely going to repurchase the Etude tint since I'm nearly finished with it ^^
    And the TM pact is too cute to resist, hehe.
    Thanks for reading ^^

  14. Korean cosmetics are virtually hard to find in my state too - lucky I'm an online shopper addict :P
    Thanks for reading!

  15. Thanks! I've just tried the gold one, but I also bought a pink one which I haven't used yet - can't wait to try that one!

  16. I'm wanting to try their matte lippies too! But I'm trying to be good and avoiding their stands for now, lol.
    The other two shades I have is the pale pink and a dark red too - maybe we picked the same one :P

  17. I was surprised by how nice and silky the blush was! I find Essence to be really decent overall, although occasionally they do have some misses - and the packaging/stand does come off as quite tween-ish too which can be off putting!

  18. Hehe, I'm a lippie fanatic!
    Thanks for reading ^^

  19. The essence quadro quad looks gorgeous on you and essence is absolutely affordable ^^.

    I am just hosting a giveaway with the Etude House cherry lip tint on my blog :)
