May Favourites

Hey Everyone!

Well it's definitely been a while since my last post, but since college is now over and I'm free from education for summer, I thought 'why not get back into blogging?', and what better way than to start with a favourites post??

During the month of May I rediscovered a few old favourites of mine, as well as started loving some new products. 

My first favourite of May is the Naked palette.  I realise pretty much everyone has this already but I just received it as a gift from my boyfriend a few weeks ago.  I had wanted it since it came out but never purchased it.  Now that I've got it, I only wish I purchased it sooner.  Each colour is so pigmented and the quality of the eyeshadows is pretty perfect.  They last all day without any creasing and are also easily removed with makeup wipes (no nasty scrubbing of your eyes required).  My favourite colours in the palette are Virgin, Sin, Sidecar, Half Baked, Smog and Toasted.  




My second favourite of May has been my Effaclar Duo cream by La Roche-Posay.  This was a brand I was only slightly familiar with before trying out.  After trying this, I'm wanting to try the whole range!  Every time I use this cream I notice a difference in my skin.  The cream is designed to deal with imperfections in the skin, from spots to redness.  If I use this cream everyday (like I have been) I notice a reduction in the number of spots, especially large angry ones!  I hardly get them at all when I use this cream.  I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their skin.  


Another favourite of mine falls was release on the last day of May (so it just makes the cut for this post) but I fell in love with it the day I bought it.  The new Benefit tinted balms.  I purchased Posiebalm, and already have my eyes on the rest of the range.  The colour is sheer but provides a lovely light colour for the warm months.  Its also super moisturising and feels really good on the lips, so I can definitely see my wearing these in the colder months too.  




I've also been wearing MaxFactor's False Lash Effect mascara a lot recently.  I bought this after trying to find a replacement for Covergirls Lash Blast Fusion.  Turns out these two are exactly the same.  I love that it's big thick brush that gives your lashes a full look without being clumpy or 'spider-leggy'.  This is my go-to mascara now!



A further favourite of mine has been Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle Velvet Body Oil.  This is such a lovely scented body oil and just smells like fresh flowers - absolutely perfect for Spring/Summer.  The oil is very moisturising and doesn't leave your skin slippy as it dries in fairly quickly.  It leaves your skin smelling gorgeous for ages.  I wouldn't quite say this is a necessity but it is lovely if you fancy spoiling yourself!



I hope you all enjoyed this favourites post, I do realise we are half way through June but I thought I would do a May favourites anyway!
