May Favourites

Thursday, 30 May 2013

Hi Girlies! I know I say this every month but I really can't believe how quickly May has gone! This month I've done my exams and finished second year (hopefully!), I've moved to London and I've started my Placement! Anyway, lets get on with talking about all the products which I've been loving this month! 

If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I fell in love with 'Creme Cup' by MAC after winning it in a giveaway. I love this colour and I think its a great nude for me. I'm so pale that a lot of nude colours just look funny on me and wash me out. I'm a huge fan of pink lipsticks so this pinky nude is perfect for me! I've been wearing it almost everyday without fail for things like work and even going out, I really love how its so versatile! 

The second thing I've been loving this month is High Beam by Benefit. I've been suffering with extra dry skin this month ( I think I must be having a reaction to something) so all my foundation and powder have been looking really cakey and clinging to all my dry patches (pretty much my whole face!) so I've been loving this highlighter as it doesn't cling or cake on my dry skin at all. It has a really creamy texture so its really easy to blend and sits well on my dry skin, giving my face a little bit more of a glow. I haven't been able to use any powder highlighters this month because of my dry skin as they just cling to it and make it worse so this has been a bit of a lifesaver as highlighter has become part of my staple products now! 

Another thing I've fallen in love with this month is 'Pink Swoon' by MAC. I also won this in a giveaway (how lucky am I?!) and I haven't really been reaching to any other blushers since. This is a sheer colour blush so you can either wear it really light which looks great on my pale skin or build it up. 

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation has also been an absolute lifesaver this month! As I said before my skin has been SO dry this month and this is pretty much my only foundation I can get away with wearing at the moment (not so great for my bank balance though!). I love how light and dewy this foundation is and it doesn't cling to my dry patches as much as any of my other foundations. This foundation is usually great for my dry skin and you can hardly tell my skin is dry but because its so bad this month it is clinging a bit but I don't really think I'd be able to find a magic foundation to give me a flawless look at the moment. 

A fragrance has also snuck its way into my monthly favourites this time too. I don't usually include fragrances because the scent I choose usually depends on my mood that day but I've been loving Chance by Chanel almost every day this month. I love fresh scents so this is perfect. I'm rubbish at describing scents but I'd say this one was quite fresh and maybe a little bit fruity, I'm not sure! But I love how long this perfume lasts, I can apply it at 8am and it will still be on at 10pm! Also, I love how I can wear it for daytime and for a night out, so really I can't lose with this perfume, except maybe with the price. 

I'd love to hear what all your monthly favourites are this month and see if we have any similar choices!
