may beauty wishlistMy beauty wishlist for May!

I’m the type of girl that’s always painting her nails. I can’t stand to have chipped or unpainted nails, so I’m constantly painting them — sometimes even as I’m walking out the door. One of my secrets is that if I’m going in my car somewhere I’ll paint them before I leave, and hold my hands out the window so they dry! Looks crazy but I don’t care, it helps! Because of all of this last-minute nail painting (my husband hates the smell so I try not to do it while he’s home) I’m always looking for ways to dry my nails quickly and I’m willing to try just about anything — so next up on my list to try is this Essie Quick-E Drying Drops.

Who doesn’t want this gorge NARSissist eye palette!?!

I love cheek stains. I think they work better than powder blushes which I think come off quickly, so I want to try this Josie Maran cheek gelée recommended by my friend Lara.

I’m a sucker for neutral nail polish colors. Love this color fashion by Deborah Lippmann.

Anything that promises deep sleep — sign me up. I love that it says “nighttime ritual” on the bottle of this deep sleep night oil. I’m always slathering oil all over my body before I go to sleep, especially in the summer so I can keep my tan!

I am OBSESSED with the new scents from Elizabeth and James. Obsessed. I want them both, Nirvana Black and Nirvana White.

What beauty products do you want to try this month?


  1. Jen

    I love NARS eyeshadows! That palette looks amazing. I picked up Smashbox’s photo finish primer yesterday along with Bite’s red/pink lipstick duo – I can’t wait to try them out!


  2. Mademoiselle Nature

    The blush from Josie maran looks awesome!

  3. Jess Zimlich

    I’m not ashamed to admit that I hang my hands out the windows to let fresh paint dry! My theory is that you can either look crazy driving or look crazy (bad nails) when you get there.

  4. Sahra

    that deborah lippmann color is perfect! also, I need the Elizabther + James scent as well!

    XO Sahra
    Que Sera Sahra

  5. Mariah

    I have the Nirvana Black and LOVE it, the only problem is that it doesn’t last very long and you have to reapply a lot. 🙁

  6. jaime @laviejaime

    i am dying to smell those 2 E&J scents- is there one you like slightly better?

  7. lara / the glossarie.

    the elizabeth and james scents are SO good – i have both rollerballs and i can’t get enough
