May Favourites

I haven't done one of these in absolutely ages, so thought I'd finally get back in the swing of doing them. I've used/found a lot of new products this month so there are quite a few favourites this month!

It's been a weird month of trying new skincare, I'm currently loving my Liz Earle skincare system (writing a whole separate post about it). I've found it's made my skin look healthier so I can brave using a little more powder without looking like a flat piece of paper. I love how finely milled the MAC MSFN powder is, so no chalky faces in sight! I've also been loving the Porefessional by Benefit to prime my face, it's such a weird consistency but it keeps my foundation in place perfectly. I just wish it wasn't so expensive!

I'm sure you'll all know by now I'm not into haircare. I have the normal wash-dry-straighten routine and the only styling product I use is a heat protectant. This month however I've really been into anything hair, and think I've purchased around 6-7 hair products. To some that might not be many, but to me that's gigantic! I have really been loving the Lee Stafford 'Blow Dry Your Hair Faster' Spray that I've mentioned here, it's a miracle product. The Aussie Volume Mousse, which I was sent only a few days ago, has also blown me away. I have incredibly fine, boring hair and it gives it a bit of oomph without weighing down my hair. I'd never tried a mousse before as it's always suggested to stick to strays but I love this!

An eyeshadow I've been wearing pretty much every day is All That Glitters by MAC, it's a peachy shade on me and is really flattering. It brightens up my tired peepers and gives me a little bit of a summer glow.

Sleek has always been a brand I love, the products are so cheap for the quality. So when I got my 50% off code I bought a fair few things, and have been loving the blush Sahara I purchased. It's not a colour I'd usually go for either! Another product, again from the same haul, is the Pout Polish in Sugar May. It's really moisturising and the colour isn't too bold. A lovely neutral lip colour I've been wearing a lot. The other product here is the Maybelline Gel Eyeliner, I'm sure you'll have heard of it. Unlike Sleek's Ink-pot it doesn't dry out and the brush it comes with is fab.

Even though I've got acrylics on, I have been painting my nails in a way of getting out of doing revision. I couldn't help pick up Fashion Fawn by Nails Inc given away in the InStyle magazine this month. I also picked up Electric Teal but haven't tried it yet. Another colour that's an indication summer is on it's way is Pink Flamingo by Barry M, I've been sporting this every now and then to get me out of the mid-winter mode.
I've stuck to the same old perfume this month, Daisy by Marc Jacobs. It's my 'signature scent' and I think it's the first perfume I'll actually finish. It's a really happy scent, if that makes sense.. very summery. I also picked up a perfume from M&S, where I'd have never thought of getting perfume before. It cost only £6 and is the perfect 25ml size to fit in your handbag. I can't describe the scent at all, but when you're next in M&S look out for 'Butterfly'.

A few blogs I have loved reading this month: Jess's, Charli's, Emma's and Catherine's.
They are all so lovely, and I'm always talking to them on Twitter!
