May Beauty Favourites

May was a strange month for me; exams, final essays, and moving back home for the summer after the end of my second uni year. It is scary to think I've only got one year left of my course to go now! This month  I discovered and re-discovered some real beauty gems I wanted to share with you. As you can see, I've become a little obsessed with taking my blog photos in the garden, since summer has started to appear!



















































Real Techniques Blush Brush // £9.99 - I'm constantly adding to my Real Techniques brush collection and the blush brush is my latest addition. It's so soft and incredible at blending out colour.

Nars Blush in 'Deep Throat' // £21.50 - I've been using this classic all month. NARS' blush formula is perfect, and I love this colour for spring.

La Roche Possay Effaclar A.I // £7.00 - This is proving to be a really good alternative to the more expensive and much loved Super Spot Remover from Origins. I'll do a full review soon!

Maybelline Colour Tatoo in 'On and on Bronze' // £4.99 - I like to use this as a base for eyeshadow, or on it's own; it's such a pretty colour. The only downside is that this still creases on me after a few hours, even with a good primer.

MAC Omega Eyeshadow // £12.00 - I've been loving using this as my brow colour every day; it's a perfect match for me.

MAC Lipstick in 'Shy Girl' // £14.00 - In my favourite formula, Cremesheen, this is a coral-beigey-nude - exactly my kind of colour. You do have to reapply this one quite often though to keep the colour.


Link your May Favourites posts in the comments, I'd love to have a read!

  11. I bought On & On Bronze today, I love it!! I'm looking forward to seeing the La Roche product review, I've been wondering whether there was another product as good as the Origins spot remover.
