may beauty: loves and sort of

Remember my May beauty wish-list? I bet you thought there is no way that I was going to be able to try them all... let's just say my curiosity got the best of me and I racked up some serious Sephora points. As promised! Here are my May beauty "loves" and "sort of"s. Yes, that was my pathetic attempt to rhyme.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel: I received this brow gel in my Birchbox a couple months ago and for some reason I didn't get around to trying it until recently. Wow, was I missing out! This gel is amazing. It's a clear gel that keeps your brows in place all day long. I like to use it on top of my dior brow styler, but it's also great on its own. If you're really into the bold brows look, I would definitely pick this up! Dior Forever Foundation: I haven't worn foundation in months, I've been sticking to BB cream and a setting powder. But, while I love BB cream it doesn't photograph as well as foundation does. I set out looking for a foundation that was long lasting, natural looking, and wouldn't rub off on my clothes. Dior forever is everything that I was looking for in a foundation. Bite Lipstick duo: Love this duo! It's only $12 and the colors have serious staying power! My only tip would be to apply with a brush if you tend to "color outside of the lines".

Sort Of:

It's supposed to prep your face for foundation and even out your skin tone. I don't have a lot of uneven color/skin on my face so that may be why I didn't absolutely love this product. Clinique Cheek Pop Blush: This is another product that the beauty industry has been raving about. I absolutely love the packaging but the color (berry pop) and formula didn't do much for me.

Did you discover any great beauty products in May? What are you hoping to try this month?
