This is the post that I have been most excited to get to. My very first monthly favourites! I was tempted to do more of a ‘favourites up to this point’ style post, but I might save that one for a later date. I have also decided to limit myself to a top five for each month. Just so these posts don’t become 20,000 word epics. But I digress, these are the products that I have been reaching for most days.
FENTY BEAUTY GLOSS BOMB UNIVERSAL LIP LUMINIZER
I’m a matte lip lover, but this lip gloss has basically been living in my work shirt pocket for the entirety of May. It provides the right amount of shine without too much stickiness and it smells so yummy! I have the mini that I got in a set, but I definitely want to buy the full size when I run out.
EYEKO LONDON LAST ALERT MASCARA
Speaking of ‘buying the full size’, THIS MASCARA! I got a deluxe sample of it with my most recent Mecca order and it has now shot to the top of my favourites list for mascara. The wand isn’t that remarkable but the formula is just perfect for me! There is no smudging, no flaking, it’s waterproof but still easy to remove and it makes my lashes look freaking amazing!
RIMMEL LASTING FINISH BREATHABLE FOUNDATION
It’s rare for me to find a light-medium coverage foundation that I truly love, but I have been unable to stop wearing this foundation since I got it. If you like a high coverage foundation, you probably won’t love this. But for day to day wear, I adore it. It blends like a dream, especially over my nose which is a problem area for me and it does last for ages on the skin without breaking down.
SMASHBOX X VLADAMUA PETAL METAL COVERSHOT EYESHADOW PALETTE
I’m lowkey kind of devastated that this palette sold out as quickly as it did because it is easily my favourite item from the entire Smashbox X VladaMUA collaboration. The shimmers are beautiful and smooth, while the mattes are just the right amount of pigmented for my liking. It’s the palette I have used the most this month by far and that’s saying something.
SAND & SKY BRILLIANT SKIN PURIFYING PINK CLAY MASK
Pink clay masks seem to be all the rage at the moment, so I picked this one up a few months back and all I have to say is WOW! I’ve been using this at least twice a week and the difference in my skin is massive. I’m breaking out a lot less, my pores are more refined and my acne scarring has faded dramatically! This is absolutely worth the hype in my opinion and I will be buying it again when I run out.
And those are my five favourites for this month. Let me know what your favourites are in the comments below.
Cheers and love
