Hello my lovelies,
Another month has gone so quick, seriously how are we nearly half way through the year already? May has been such a busy month for me with my boyfriend dislocating his shoulder and having an operation on top of that so I was full time acting as his nurse! The hot weather was amazing though – me and my puppy was having such a great time in the paddling pool I brought. I also attended IMATS with my sister and my best friend which as always was amazing, I spent way to much money but it only comes around once a year. Do keep your eye out for an upcoming IMATS Haul!
This month because I have been so busy, I have ended up sticking to the same things but these little babies I have been using have really shone out. It is all makeup based this month so if you are a skincare lover this one may not be for you.
Maybelline – Fit Me Foundation in 110 Porcelain see here
I actually picked this up pretty recently which you may have seen in my recent Boots & TK Maxx Haul I was in desperate need of falling in love with a drug store foundation and I may have just found it. It applies like a dream and although looking at the colour it looks pretty pale for me, it actually colour matches really well. I don’t want to go into too much detail as I will be doing a full review on this pretty soon. All I would say is, if you have oily prone skin or are looking for a matte foundation then this may be worth trying out.
Charlotte Tilbury – Hollywood Lips in Show Girl see here
Anyone that knows me, knows that I adore liquid lipstick I am a complete sucker for it. To be honest I thought I had lost this one, whoops! I found it in my handbag at the start of this month and because I couldn’t find it for so long I knew I had to get wearing it. Although it’s not really a spring colour, I love it. It’s a berry colour but not too deep so completely wearable on a daily basis. It’s so comfortable on the lips and to be honest I am a sucker for anything Charlotte Tilbury. Would I pay £24 for another one.. probably not unless I came into some money and I wanted to treat myself. If you have the money for one then I would strongly recommend trying it out the shade range is beautiful!
Huda Beauty – Desert Dusk Palette see here
I have very recently written a full review on my thoughts of this palette here but a little side note before you read it.. I blooming love it. If you have read my review then you will know that I very nearly just gave this away because it wasn’t being used. Thank god I kept it because I can’t stop using it. I have a look that I create on a daily basis and I just love the look and nothing else seems to come close to it. From the picture it looks like I have barely used this but trust me I have used this pretty much every day this month. In my eyes it is well worth the investment, if you are on the fence about this my advice is to buy it. You won’t regret it I promise.
Maybelline – Instant Age Rewind Concealer in Light see here
Another recent-ish addition to my collection and as you can see I have used this quite a bit. This however I picked up from Superdrug and to be honest it is perfect for my under eye area. Although I don’t have the brightening one, I don’t think I need it. This does the job and is the perfect colour for me. My only annoyance and I am sure I am not the only one on this is the applicator and how messy it gets – seriously! I also think it’s a little overpriced for what it is especially for the drugstore but it is a great product and I know it is so well loved and now I’m hooked too!
Sephora Lip Cream in Marvellous Move see here
This along with my Charlotte Tilbury lipstick is the only thing that has been on my lips this month. I absolutely adore the formula of this and the colour. I mean this is seriously one of the best liquid lipsticks I have ever come across. My favourite at present is the Huda Beauty Liquid Lipsticks but if they aren’t in your budget then this comes a very close second for me. I can’t wait to go to New York in September mainly so I can go into Sephora and buy more of these shades. I mean the shade range is incredible I didn’t realise they had so many and they are constantly adding new shades to the range. This is my go to spring lip colour – I LOVE IT!
Tarte – Maneater Mascara see here
Last but by no means least, this mascara. I brought this last month as I picked a gift up for my sister as it was here birthday and I thought it would be rude not to treat myself. I was a little sceptical about trying this mascara as I head over heels fell in love with Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara and didn’t think I would love anything else. But oh boy was I proved wrong. I don’t think it is better than Lights, Camera, Lashes as they do different things, I love them equally. The only thing I need to get used to is how big the brush/applicator is – it’s pretty overwhelming when you first try to apply the mascara! This gives amazing volume and I am left with no flaky bits on the face throughout the day. I mean I knew everyone loved the Tarte mascaras but didn’t understand why – but now I do and I am completely obsessed, I am sure I will own all of them at some point..
& just like that my May Favourites are done. Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what your thoughts are on them.
