May Favourites 2016


May Favourites 2016 NARS Kalahari, NARS Audacious Anita, Rimmel Volume Colourist, Revlon Ultra Matte HD, Soap & Glory Peach Party
It's been a good few months since I've done a favourites post, but as it's a new season I thought it was about time I'd update you guys. I've also been thinking about posting twice a week instead of just once, so hopefully this will be going up on Thursday instead of Monday, yippee!

May Favourites 2016 NARS Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo, Revlon Ultra Matte HD Devotion
This month I've pretty much stuck to the same makeup look (boring I know, but I love it!). Most days I've been choosing NARS Kalahari Eye Shadow Duo over any of my other shadows. I've always loved the more bronzey golden shades, they bring out the hazel in my eyes. I like to apply the matte brown shade first - it has an almost copper red tinge to it, then apply the copper shimmer in the crease. This is the most beautiful bronze shimmering eye, I've been loving it with a lot of bronzer and dark nude lips, this would be great on your Summer holidays! The formula is gorgeous and a little goes a long way, watch out for a bit of fall out with the shimmering shade though. 

One of the newer products in my collection is the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Devotion. Now I can not say enough about this gorgeous matte lip cream, you can see a more detailed review in my post here. Of course like everyone else right now, I can't get enough of the matte lips, so when these came out I had to get a couple. Devotion has stood out to be my favourite, I think the warm toned rose pink shade is so flattering. What I'm most impressed by is the formula. I love that these are so creamy and lightweight on application, you hardly feel as if you have anything on your lips. After about ten minutes the lipstick kind of dries and the beautiful matte finish is visible. These kind of act like a lip stain, the shade stays beautiful for hours later.

May Favourites 2016 NARS Audacious Anita, Rimmel Volume Colourist
To go along with my bronzed copper eyes, I love a good dark black mascara and Rimmel's Volume Colourist is the one! I love the jet black eyes, it really makes your eyes stand out more and draws attention. Rimmel have never let me down with mascara, this adds volume, length and a gorgeous jet black colour - without being too thick or clumpy. You can really get nice lengthy, defined lashes with this, without being a complete mess! Volume Colourist has tinting properties to it, so it actually tints your eyelashes the more you wear it - so even when you're not wearing it, you should have nice dark lashes. Now I have quite dark lashes anyway so I can't comment too much on this, but I do love the colour when it's on.

If I'm not wearing Revlon's Devotion, I've been wearing NARS Anita Audacious Lipstick! I've talked about this before in a review, so if you're a regular reader you'll know how much I love this. I love the warm nude tone, it really warms up your look and makes your lips look so plump and kissable! The formula is so gorgeous, it's so creamy on application but gives a more matte/sheen finish - as you can probably tell I have a thing for the non drying matte formulas - so let me know some of your favourites. I loved this so much I got my hands on another Audacious Lipstick - Natasha, so I'm sure I'll be talking about that really soon.

May Favourites 2016 Soap & Glory Peach Party
The weather has got slightly warmer and like most Brits, I like to embrace any sunshine we do get. So for the past month I've been rocking my Soap & Glory Peach Party, in hope we get some sunshine! This is a beautiful shimmering blush with a spectrum of shades including, a warm pink, golden bronze, champagne and a copper toned bronze - mixed together make the perfect warm shimmering Summer blush. I love the natural warm glow this gives, I just wish I could really show this off with some more sunshine! The formula is soft and creamy and this applies beautifully.

Food Favourites
I wanted to do something a little bit different this month and add a couple of other favourites too. This month I have discovered hummus! If you know me in person, then you'll know there's not much I don't put ketchup with! But it's so bad for you and your skin, I'm really trying to cut down. My favourite thing to eat has been bagels. It may sound weird but I love a sesame seed bagel with reduced fat hummus, ham and spinach. I don't know if that's a weird combination, but I love it and I like to think it's some what healthy for me too!

TV Favourites
This month I've also been re watching Gossip Girl, I've watched it all before but I wanted to introduce it to Simon (the boyfriend). He's pretty good like this, he'll watch anything with me (we've just finished Sex & The City) he's such a big girl! My obsession for Gossip girl is well and truly back, I just feel like I should be Blair Waldorf! She's sexy, powerful and wealthy and for sure my girl crush this month!

I'd love to know what you've been loving this month?

  1. Kalahari looks so beautiful, I really want to try the Revlon lip lacquers but when I went in to swatch them I really wasn't sure about the scent! X

    1. Oh I love Kalahari! Wow really! Usually people love the scent, if you can get over the smell I really recommend you try them!
