May Favourites

Sorry I have been MIA this week due to moving home and sorting out some of my last bits at uni for the year but I am back and finally home. Those of you who follow me on twitter will know how much I disliked my house mates so was nice to see the back of them! but that is enough of that!

I thought I would come back with a bang. Favourites blogs and videos are really my favourite things to read/watch and as I have been loving so much this month I thought I would jump on the bandwagon!

I have to say I have been loving so many things this month and although I knew insantly these would be featured in this post, there were so many more things that I could of added but I didn't want to go over the top!

Make up 

Mac Lipstick in Pink Plaid: This has been my go to lipstick since I bought it! I think the colour really compliments my paler skin perfectly. Although this is a Matte. I haven't found it to be drying.  You can read my full review here.

Nails inc. in Power Pink: I am sure if you are in the UK you will of most likely seen some posts for these nail varnishes. I actually only own one other nails inc. varnish. This colour is actually more of a lavender rather than a pink, which the name suggests. Its completely opaque in 2 coats. I just love the formula for this. The only thing I don't like is the lid! I find it so hard to pain using this lid. It is just to big for my little hands!

Topshop Blush in Prime Time: I have some serious love for this blush. I have a good sized collection of blushes so it is unusual for me to stick with one blush for long but this I have been wearing everyday! I think since I have got it I have used a different blush about 3 times. Its just such a lovely colour and stays put all day. You can read my full review here

Inglot Eye shadow Palette: I don't actually know what the colours are in this palette as I bought it off someone else. These eye shadows are amazing! They are just so soft and silky and they a amazingly pigmented! I am actually going to London on Thursday and definitely taking a trip to Inglot to go make myself a palette. I just think the whole store idea is amazing. 


Caudalie Beauty Elixir: I wouldn't quite say this is holy grail material like a lot of people but I do love this and I have noticed a difference. I have been using this mainly between toning and moisturising both morning and night. My skin does look a bit brighter since I have been using it. Again, like most things I am a sucker for the scent. I also used this a lot during the hotter weather just to cool and refresh my skin. 

Origins Drink Up Intensive: I only got this at the beginning of the month and I have fallen head over heels in love with this product. For me, this is holy grail material. I will now never be without this product. My skin isn't dry but it lacks omph, which I think is due to it being dehydrated. I put a layer of this on before bed and in the morning it is all gone. My skin just drinks this up. I really have noticed a huge difference in my skin since using this. I will be doing a full review of this soon. 

Caudalie Cleansing Water: This product for me only falls down in one area, it contains fragrance but having said that I do have slightly sensitive skin and it hasn't effected mine. I used this in the morning to just refresh and clean my skin. In the morning I like to used things that are quick and easy. Mainly because I am always running late! and this just ticks that box. All you need to do is soak a cotton pad and wipe it all over your face and leave it to air dry. It really does leave my skin feeling refreshed. I only bought a small bottle as I just wanted to try it out but will be purchasing a big bottle once this has run out!


Soap and Glory Sugar Crush: I won't go into to much detail as you can read my full review here. This is an amazing scrub but the main this is the smell! Oh my! I love it! seriously go into boots and smell this bad boy! 


MoroccanOil Intense Hydrating Mask: I bleach my hair and I do use heat sometimes so as you can imagine my hair doesn't really love me all that much. My ends tend to be very dry and I have to get it cut regularly. Saying that, since using this mask I have noticed a HUGE difference! I am not being dramatical. My hair feels like how it used to before I started bleaching. It is SO soft, it is shiny and just looks full of life again. This for me is a little more expensive than I would usually like to pay for a hair mask ( I bought this on Buyapowa) but I would not hesitate to buy this again. Again I think I have found another holy grail product...!


Chanel Chance: I am just going to say it now, I am terrible at picking out the different scent notes in fragrances. For me if it smells nice I will buy it. I picked this up in duty free when I went to Egypt over a month ago and I don't seem to have used that much. I usually do one spray on my neck and one on my wrist. This isn't an over powering scent. I hate when you can really smell someone's perfume when they walk past you, I think if you have to spray that much to notice it, it isn't that good but that is only my opinion. This is a lovely fresh scent and perfect for summer!

Let me know what your may favourites are
