As it’s the last day of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my May favorites. I had a busy month with a lot going on, so I didn’t try a whole lot of new/different things, but I think I have a nice little list so let’s get into it.
Starting with beauty, I have three favorites from my May BoxyCharm box and if you haven’t read that, I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the Item Beauty by Addison Rae Air Hug Concealer in 100. This is a medium to full coverage concealer with a lightweight formula. I was worried when I saw this because we’ve seen before that a lot of “influencer” or “celebrity” makeup lines, aren’t great but honestly I’m so impressed with this. The formulation is really nice, so when you apply it it basically glides on and blends into the skin without creasing. It also has a really nice, big doe foot applicator and I think that helps with the easy application. This now has a permanent spot in my makeup bag and I 100% recommend giving it a try if you haven’t.
My next beauty favorite is the V Kosmetik Creamy Liquid Velvet Lipstick in Bubbly. I really, really like this lipstick. It has a lightweight formula, it’s creamy and very longwearing. The color is also a major plus. It’s a gorgeous berry tone that I think is quite versatile. It would be nice in the fall/winter months but it also plays well to the spring/summer months. This my first introduction to V Kosmetik as it’s a new brand to BoxyCharm, but I’m really interested to see what other lipsticks and products in general, they have.
And my last beauty favorite is the Yensa Skin On Skin Beauty Sponge. This is a multi-functional sponge that guarantees skin like, streak free, full coverage. It’s paraben, sulfate, latex, phthalate and animal cruelty free. I thought that it felt a little bit harder than what I typically go for, but once it was wet, it softened up and was nice to use.
Moving on, I have a racing favorite and it’s not just any race, it’s the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indy 500. Once you have friends that are race car drivers it automatically makes all races more stressful but also more fun and exciting. And this year was incredible exciting. The USAF Thunderbirds did an incredible job, as always, with the flyover, Roger Penske and the Penske Corporation did a fantastic job putting on the first 500 with an almost full capacity crowd since the pandemic. The racing was top tier, everyone was on their game and the last couple laps were some of the most stressful I’ve watched in a while, but in a good way. I obviously have to congratulate Marcus Ericsson and Chip Ganassi Racing on their win, that’s so exciting. And I also want to say that I’m super proud of Tony Kanaan for his third place finish. If you guys watched the 500 this year I’d love to know what your favorite moment was.
And my last favorite isn’t a music favorite, but a podcast favorite. My podcast to be exact. I have talked about my podcast before, but we just rebranded! This will be the last name change, I promise, but we are now The Unlikely Motorsports Duo. This is the best, most representative name we’ve had and I’m so happy with it. We will at some point be changing our logo, we don’t know what we’re changing it to yet, but leave me comment with your thoughts and don’t forget to join us at https://www.twitch.tv/theunlikelymotorsportsduo for motorsports commentary!
That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not, I’d love to know what your May favorites were.
Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great May :).
