I've discovered so many amazing beauty products over the last month, it was hard to narrow my favourites down, as May really was a fantastic month for makeup launches, particularly from the Drugstore, it's so hot it's on fire. So let me run you through the products that have not left my dressing table all month.
I very rarely buy fragrances, so it's quite unusual for one to pop up in a favourites post, but I got a sample of this in a Sephora order and I just couldn't get the scent out of my head. So armed with a 25% off code for Feel Unique, I made a naughty purchase and I've been dowsing myself in it since. It's your stereotypical "Summer" scent and with a name like "Beach Walk" would you expect anything else? It's got notes of bergamot, ylang ylang, and coconut and smells fresh and sweet, it's just beautiful and don't get me started on the bottle, it's pure Parisian chic.
This is the only foundation I've used consistently all month. It's light, but can be built up for medium coverage and because it's water based it feels cooling on the skin. You can read my Tarte Foundation Review Here.
Ok ok, I'll try to stop banging on about this contour stick, but I'm seriously obsessed with it. If you read my Contouring For Pale Skin Post you'll already know that. The creamy formulation and easy to use bullet shaped stick, makes creating razor sharp cheekbones in just three swipes, foolproof.
Makeup in miniature form is always going to be a winner, but this blush is absolutely divine. It sure packs a peachy pink punch considering it's size. It's butter like texture just sinks into the skin and locks into place, staying put for hours.
I tried a sample of this cleansing balm a few months ago and despite telling myself that I couldn't possibly justify the ridiculous amount of money the full size costs, I went ahead and bought it, in an hour of madness and I hate to say it, but it's fantastic. I use it as my second cleanse, so I remove the bulk of my makeup with the Garnier Micellar Water, then apply a small amount of this balm. It just melts off any remaining bits of mascara and leaves my skin incredibly soft. A little really goes a long way, which is lucky considering the eye watering price, but I can't deny how great my skin has been looking this last month.
Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow in La La
Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow in La La
The texture of this eyeshadow is so unusual, it's a firm mousse, but it has a bounce to it, it's very strange. The colour though is absolutely stunning, you know I love my metallic rose golds, but this one is on another level. I recently did a post all about How To Get Colourpop Shipped To The UK, if you fancy trying some of their products for yourself, so pop along to that post to see this eyeshadow in more detail.
Yet another Colourpop addition, am I starting to sound like a broken record? I hope not. After years of declaring my love for bright lipsticks, I've finally started to understand why the world love nude lipstick's, thank to this creamy Peachy Pink Lippie Stix. It has a stain finish, but it lasts a surprisingly long time on the lips.
I thought I'd also mention a few things I've been binge watching on Netflix, just I case you're looking for a few new shows to indulge in:
Friday Night Lights
If you're missing One Tree Hill and like small town sport dramas, you're going to love this one. It's set in a small Texas town and centres around the local high school American football team. Don't worry though, it's not all about sport there's some pretty hunky guys in it too hehe, it's just a really sweet, heartwarming show about family. Plus there's five season to enjoy.
Scream (The TV Show)
I recently re-watched this show ready for the second season, but if you haven't seen it yet, I definitely recommend it. It basically takes inspiration from the "Scream" movies and brings them up to date, into the social media age. Personally I don't find it that scary, it's very much a teen/ high-school themed show, so if you like Pretty Little Liars you might like this. Though unlike A, you do find out who the killer is at the end of the season.
So this one may not be new to me, I've been addicted since Christmas but I really think more people should be watching it. It's so good, think an historic Gossip Girl, meets Game Of Thrones (the PG version).
Ok now it's your turn, I need a few more recommendations: I already have The Tudors and I Zombie on my list but I need some more so go on... my pen's ready. Also let me know what products you're been loving this month?
