May Beauty Favorites!11:23 PM
Another month has gone by which means it's time for another beauty favorites video! Since I came out to LA, some of my favorites this month have been things that have been working well for me in the drier weather out here. I also have a new favorite everyday blush, eyeshadow, and a nail polish that I've been wearing a lot.

It's funny because a lot of my favorites this month are products that I've had for a while but they never really had their time in the sun. I think I avoided this Coralista blush by Benefit for a long time (I bought it last year) because I had so many other similar blushes.
After trying out Hervana (mentioned in my January favorites) and really enjoying it though, I finally used Coralista and just as tons of other ladies have said, it's a beautiful and easy-to-wear blush that runs pinky-peach with golden shimmer. It's really perfect for the summertime! The smell is also really similar to Hervana so if you enjoy that one you will probably like this too.
I have also been LOVING this Mario Badescu Lip Wax. The name is a bit misleading because the texture is definitely more of an oil than a wax since it melts upon contact with your lips. It feels very moisturizing, plus it has SPF 15 and isn't drying over time like a lot of menthol lip balms are. It's $7 so it's more than drugstore lip balms but less than other department store lip balms and conditioners. I've been using it everyday lately and it's been keeping my lips plump and hydrated.
As I mentioned at the end of my video, I've been super busy working with Wong Fu Productions on Away We Happened so if you have any beauty-related requests for the series I was thinking maybe I'd do a video. Would any of you like to see a makeup tutorial for the look I've been doing for the series? Or even just film and photo-ready makeup in general? Let me know in the comments. :)
