Monthly Favourites

May Favourites 2017


I am so sorry guys! This is quite a long list but I have so many favourites this month; not all of them are beauty related either. So I will keep everything as brief as possible whilst trying to explain why I love all twenty of these things so much.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear

I bought this foundation at the end of last month after hearing Love Shelby rave about it so much. This is such a beautiful satin finish foundation that lasts a really long time on the skin without breaking apart. It’s also medium coverage so covers quite a few sins on the face. It’s a brilliant product!

The Red Tent

This is a two part drama on Netflix. It follows the story of Dinah, a sister of Joseph (from Joseph’s Technicolour Dreamcoat) and her life. It will make you cry and laugh and cry out in anger, but it’s so beautifully written and acted. I loved every minute of it.


Zoeva Matte Spectrum Palette

This is such a creamy product that blends out beautifully. I love the choice of colours in here, which makes it a great palette for creating a gorgeous coloured smoky eye. It’s fantastic.

Benefit Ka-brow

I have mentioned this on other favourites lists, but I haven’t used it for a while. This gives really gorgeous natural brows that last all day. It is such a fantastic brow product.

Line of Duty

I am officially obsessed! There are so many twists in this series that it will have you second guessing yourself throughout the entire series. I can’t wait until the next series.

Bare Minerals Original Foundation

I do have a few foundations on this list. This Bare Minerals foundation has been my go-to for night shifts. It lasts a really long time and has buildable coverage. I have used this as a powder on some days, but it is a brilliant foundation if you do have a lot of redness in your skin.

Nars Narsissist Palette

This is going to appear in a haul post next month but I bought this at the beginning of May. I already have quite significant dips in some of these pans. The shades are beautiful and blend like a dream. If you haven’t got this palette, you need it! It’s a thing of beauty.


Lancome Cushion Blush in Rose Givree

You guys know that I am obsessed with the shade Sorbet Grenadine. Well, I finally purchased another shade. Rose Givree is a paler pink but still gives a very natural flush shade. It’s absolutely stunning!

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

I am officially in a book hangover now. This book blew me away; I loved it! It was such a great way to end Feyre’s story arc but left enough openings for future stories. I will do a full review on this in June, so I won’t mention too much here. Just know, that this book was all that I wanted it to be and more. Well done Sarah!

Models Own Hyper Gel in Lilac Sheen

I have really been enjoying pastelly shades on my nails this month.This has been one of my more  reached for shades. It’s such a flattering pastel lilac shade. It dries really quick and looks amazing.

Chanel Soleil de Tan

This has been my go-to bronzer this month. It blends really naturally and gives a nice healthy glow to the skin. You only need a tiny amount of product for this to work too.


New Look HD Finishing Face Powder

If you do have an oily t-zone I would recommend getting this. This does help foundation stay put longer and doesn’t affect the shade of your foundation. It hasn’t broke me out yet, and I’ve really enjoyed using it.

Barry M Coconut Infusion Nail Paint in Bikini

This is a beautiful pastel mint shade. It smells amazing and looks so beautiful. I love mint shades and Barry M Nail Paints are some of my favourite nail polish formulas. I love them.

Pur Fully Charged and Triple Threat Mascaras

These mascaras are fantastic. The Fully Charged Mascara is brilliant for giving thicker and longer looking lashes. It is gorgeous and works well without a lash primer. Triple Threat is perfect for lower lashes. It doesn’t smudge and makes my skimpy lower lashes look amazing.


Liz Earle Light Reflecting Concealer

I’ve started re-using this concealer under my eyes and it does a brilliant job at making me look more awake. This does give more coverage that the Touche Eclat if you do want a cheaper alternative to that product.

A Court of Thorns and Roses Colouring Book

I had to buy this. The images are fantastic. I just love have images there of my favourite characters. I only wish that there was a picture of Ianthe. As much as I hate her, I still wanted to see how Sarah actually pictures her in the books. These are really easy to colour in too.

Bare Minerals Gen Nude Matte Lip Colour in Boss

If you like deeper neutral shades this colour is amazing. It lasts such a long time and feels so comfortable on the lips for a matte liquid lipstick. I absolutely adore this formula.

New Look Matte Lipstick in Orchid

This is such a beautiful colour and really cheap. Again, for a matte lipstick, this is so comfortable and quite hydrating. I love it!

W7 Nail Polish in Matte Fuschia

My friend Lynz bought me this, and it’s such a gorgeous nail shade. It dries so quickly and lasted quite a long time without chipping. It’s stunning!

Jonathon Young

I came across this guy on YouTube this month. He is fantastic. He does his own covers of famous songs. I am in love with his version of Shiny from Moana. If you enjoy rock music you should definitely check him out.

And those are all of my favourites. What were your favourite products this month?

I hope that you all have a lovely day guys, and that you survived this super long list!

  1. The zoeva palette caught my eye. It looks stunning. And you have a lot of great picks. I love the bare minerals original foundation as well. I think it’s my favorite powder foundation 🙂
