May Favorites

It's that time again where we say farewell to yet another month, by looking back at all the most loved bits from it. When it comes to loving beauty this month is no exception, but far less then some monthly favorites. I'm looking forward to the next couple of months and September as there is so much going on and I can't wait to take you all with me.

I haven't really been too bothered about my makeup this month, as I haven't been out that much as Uni is coming to an end. But, when I have been doing my makeup I have been loving the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Foundation. It is a similar consistency and coverage as a BB cream (like Maybelline BB Cream), but I find it really makes my skin look flawless and healthy. As I am a matte queen when it comes to my makeup, I have to add that bit of shimmer for my highlight and I have been obsessing over The Balm's Mary-Lou Minizer. It is one of the holy grails of highlighter and a beautiful golden shade, great for those summer day when you have a major tan going on (for me that would be either in a bottle or never hehe). To make my eyes stand out with minimal effort I have been loving the Max Factor False Effect Mascara. I wasn't to sure about this little guy, as I haven't heared many things about it, so trying it I was super impressed. It gives me dark long lashes which I totally love, especially when you can't be bothered to apply false lashes. My lips however is a different story, I have been loving the Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks and the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks. The Revlon Ultra HD lipsticks are amazing, I did a separate review on them a few weeks back at how amazing they are and I do see them being a staple in this summers makeup bag. The Too Faced Melted Lipsticks are a new love to this month, they are super creamy and so easy to apply. I have combined them together as well as on their own, they make any basic, simple look more glamorous without too much effort. Not to mention, they stain your lips so re-application is needed a lot less through out the day then compared to glosses. As well as these to staples I have also been loving a very different type of lipstick, The Frog Prince by Lipstick Queen. If you have ever seen the Barry M Genie, the one that looks green but turns pink, that's what The Frog Prince is like. However, instead of the color turning to a bright pink, it turns to a beautiful rose pink shade and deepens depending on your lip color. I think it is so complementing on my fair skin that it is wonderful to wear for that light pop of color.

For my skin I have been loving the Glam Glow Exfoliating Youth Mud, it is amazing. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and reduces blemishes like no ones business, it does say to use it once a week but for me once a month is perfectly fine. It is expensive but I think it is well worth it for a beautiful complexion through out the week. For a night treatment I have been obsessed with the Kiehl's Night Oil, it seems to make my skin glow and feel super soft every morning. the only down side to this is that I have found a few little breakouts, but nothing like I had before. To further keep my skin clear, especially in these hot humid days is to keep my brushes clean. For this I have been loving the Japonesque Solid Brush Cleaner. I have never used a product quite like this, it halves my brush cleaning time and leaves my brushes smelling and looking clean. It is a must for travelling especially for any holidays coming up. Finally to keep my hair in tip top shape, I have been loving the Loreal Absolute Repair Conditioning Hair Mask. I have always had a love hate relationship with my hair and this stuff by far, is better then anything I have used to repair my hair. I have had terribly damaged hair for years now and it's finally getting long and healthy, but to repair and protect from split ends this is the way to go.

A few months back a friend of mine had the most beautiful choker on and I just had to have it for myself. Finding the shop on Etsy I fell in love with everything, so I had to get a few bits from Bohemian Fantasy. I picked up a Moon/Nebular necklace, the Harry Potter Triangle thing which also had a nebular on it and a crystal moon choker. They are so amazing to look and and so comfortable to wear, as well as being delivered in record time for me (1 day). They are just so beautiful I just can't help myself but to wear them all the time. 

To drink I have been obsessed with the Arizona Green Tea with Honey. It is widely found in the US but only recently spotted in the UK, I found mine in a WH Smiths. I just can't get enough of this stuff it is so delicious and kind of healthy, it beats most drink sold and gives you something else to try. The bottle is definitely the highlight of it though, with the beautiful packaging you just don't want to ruin. If you find this stuff in the shops buy it as you will want more and more.

Well that's all my monthly favorites, what's yours??

Stay Gorgeous
