May Favourites!

Hello, so here are my favourites for the month of May! I will probably not do these every month as I don't buy enough products each month to have new favourites but whenever I have different products I am loving I will do favourites posts.

From Left To Right: L'oreal eyeliner in "Iced Chesnut" L'oreal voluminous mascara, Bourjois Healthy mix foundation, L'oreal true match powder, Topshop blush in "powdered" Cosmopolitan sponge, Maybelline colour tattoo in "on and on bronze."

I find black eyeliner too harsh as I am quite fair, have blue eyes and blonde hair. So I decided to try a brown eyeliner, this is great! It has great staying power (I had trouble getting the swatch off my hand!) and I love the colour! The mascara is also great, it makes my lashes look so long and well voluminous!! You can see the review of the Bourjois foundation here, so I won't go on about it any more! The L'oreal true match is my holy grail powder, it gives more coverage on top of foundation without being cakey or powdery looking.

This Topshop blush is one I use almost every day, it looks very bright in the packaging but it is really lovely on the skin and you can apply it lightly if you only want a little bit of colour on the cheeks! This Cosmopolitan sponge (available at Superdrug) is great, I run it under water, squeeze out the excess, dip it in my foundation and apply it in a dabbing motion. It makes every foundation look flawless, the water means less product is absorbed by the sponge. Finally the Maybelline colour tattoo, I have two of these and love them both, I use it both as a base under eyeshadow and also on it own on the lid and sometimes on the lower lash line!

Random Favourites:

My Canon 600D - I got this camera about two weeks ago and I adore it, it's what I use to take all my blog photos and it's great! I'm still trying to get used to it but would totally recommend it to anyone!

Estee (EssieButton on youtube)- I have been subscribed to Estee for a few months on youtube, on Monday I watched her haul video and then proceeded to watch every single one of her videos, I swear I'm obssessed! She has the best personality and when she talks about Canada it makes me want to go so badly! I will live there one day!

Dexter - I started watching this in October, I watched almost all of series one in a week! I stopped watching it because of college and work but seeing as I am on study leave and have nothing to do apart from blogging (notice that I have blogged almost every day!) I figured I would start again! I am currently watching an episode now, it's addictive!

Please leave in the comments things you are loving at the moment! :)

    1. Ohh that sucks! I always see things from the US and get so annoyed I can't try them! xx

  2. I love healthy mix! Never applied it with a sponge but maybe I'll try it :)

    1. Before I used it with the Seophora mineral brush, which is basically a kind of round top kabuki type brush, that works nicely! But now I apply it will the sponge, I just run it under water, squeeze the excess and then apply! It's lovely!! :) xx
