may favourites

Hi!

Here are my may favourites, I have so many at the moment but I had to really whittle it down to my absolute best favourites or we would be here all day! I will also link at the bottom where you can get the products.

so here we go...


my first favourite is the Rimmel match perfection face powder in the shade 001 translucent. I love this as it's really light but the coverage is brilliant. I have an oily T zone and that is mostly where I use it an it works wonders for me I don't like to use a face powder all over my face as I like my skin to look dewy and fresh but for my oily areas and to touch up though out the day its perfect.
 
                                                                      £6.99/10g
 


My next favourite is the L'Occitane crème radieuse hydration cream, this is a cream I am in love with. I got this sample pot in my may glossy box and I will definitely be buying the full size one when I run out of this one.
You apply to your face and neck morning and night and it claims to plump, smooth and make the skin look radiant, and it does exactly that as well as making my skin tone look even. it is a bit pricey but I would say it is 100% worth it.

                                                           £30.00/50ml (full size)

                                     

My favourite brush of may is the real techniques stippling brush, I've wanted one of these for so long as I love how soft the real techniques brushes are. I was a bit hesitant as first to use it with my foundation because I apply it with my fingers usually as I never get a good enough result with a brush so I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was but I was so impressed the first time I used it. The results were an airbrushed flawless finish and I even found that used less foundation as this buffed it into my skin as to usually just smearing it around with my hand.
 
£10.99

Next is the Barry M Gelly nail polish in the colour prickly pear 316. its a really shinny pastel lilac colour, its a perfect fresh colour which I have been wearing all spring. I will definitely be buying more colours in the Gelly range as it still looks fresh and shinny after 3 days wear, which is perfect for me as I don't get time repaint my nails every other day. so this has a big thumbs up from me!
                                                                
                                                                      £3.99/10ml

                                     

the mascara that I have been using non stop over may is the by jelly pong pong fairy lashes one, and again this one i got in my glossy box and it's actually full size so I was super impressed with that and will 100% be purchasing this! it is a water proof mascara which I'm yet to test out if it actually is but I will do that and let you know how water proof it is but aside from that its light and doesn't clump and my lashes still feel soft and not hard and crispy when its on. I also don't wear false lashes when I use this mascara as it makes my lashes looks so long on its own. I really am so happy with this product and think its the best mascara I've tried so far.
 
                                                                      £15.00/8ml

Another favourite is this lipstick from the Body shop, its the colour glide lip colour in the shade neon pink 59. I am totally in love with this lipstick its so moist on your lips even though the colour dries on you lips it doesn't make you lips feel dry. the best thing I love is that if you just lightly apply one coat to your lips it's just a light pink glossy look or you can apply about the three coats and its a matte bold colour. 
 
 
                                                                   
                                                                        £10.00/4g

And last but not least my obsession of the month the eos organic lip balm in honeysuckle honeydew, I love, love, love it! it tastes amazing my lips feel so soft and moisturised and I literally take it with me very where. This is a definite must have and I can never imagine not having this to go to when my lips are dry or chapped now. if you haven't tried it you must and a bonus is it comes in so many different flavours so there definitely one to suit everyone.
 
I'm also very excited to try more eos products!
