I’m going to say the normal thing everyone says when they do a monthly favourites…It’s that time again! But it really has come round quick this time, I feel like this year is flashing before my eyes. Before you know it, It will be christmas…Oo christmas! It’s sad that I’m quite excited for christmas, In june….
Any who It’s been a long month this month, so that’s give me more things to try out and love. I’ve got beauty faves, fashion faves and even food faves. So on to the make up first…
I’ve gone a little wild for NYX lately. My local boots has got a new stand and I can’t get enough of it. On my last trip I picked up this Blush. It’s the Baked Blush in the colour Ignite. It’s a gorgeous coral golden colour with a little sheen to it. It’s so pigmented so a little goes a long way but I just find it gives me such a gorgeous flush of colour. This is definitely a ‘me’ blush colour. I always go for slightly coral/orangey toned colours as they suit me better. I’ve been reaching for this all the way though june and It’s not going to be leaving my daily makeup bag anytime soon.
Urban Decay have really nailed it in the packaging department with this one haven’t they. They know how to capture the hearts of all the beauty lovers in the world. They product inside is good also, incase you we’re wondering. It’s a gorgeous bronzer. I adds such a lovely golden glow. It can be slightly orange toned so you’ve got to be light handed, But get it right and It looks amazing.
Next up is something that has taken me a long time to actually try. Everyone has been banging on at me about ABH’s eyebrow products but I was kinda like ‘Meh’. But recently I died my hair and it turned out almost black, So I needed something that was a little darker and this was something the drug store couldn’t provide me with. The first thing that came to mind was ABH. It was a good opportunity to give it ago and I’m so glad I did. I have the brow definer in Ebony and it is the perfect colour. The shape of the product is like a triangular shape so you can really define the shape of your brows. It does what it says on the tin, If you will…
An oldie but a goodie! I picked up another Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 01 light. Everyone loves this concealer. It’s cheap and cheerful but Is just as good as the high-end ones. I won’t ramble on about it as I’m sure you’ve heard everyone go on about it. If you haven’t tried it….What ya playing at! Get yourself down to boots and give it ago!
2/3 of the NYX products in this months favourites. It’s the pore filler. I have always suffered with noticeable pores and I hate it! I want my skin to look flawless. I will be completely honest, This isn’t a miracle product. It will not cover up all of your pores however, It does help if you have rather large pores. It creates a brilliant base for makeup and I find it quite mattifying so if you have oily skin you will like this. Once I have applied my makeup I can definitely notice a difference with how it looks. my skins looks and feels more smooth and I haven’t had any issues with it clogging up my pores and causing spots so thumbs up from me and my face!
Okay last NYC product, I promise! The famous soft matte lip cream. I could not go to NYX and not pick up one of these. I’m really into matte lips (just like to rest of the world) so It was the first thing that I picked up. And it didn’t disappoint. I picked up the shade Abu Dhabi. A beautiful nudey brown. Like I didn’t need another brown lippie ay. To me they are all different. But I have found my self reaching for this loads this month. It applies so nicely and It’s super creamy and lightweight. You don’t feel it pulling at your lips so It is so comfortable to wear in the day time. Love love love.
I will always go back to this baby. It’s the roller lash and It is hands down my favourite mascara but this month I have rekindled my love for it and I cannot put it down. It grips and curves my lashes and holds them all day. I don’t think I will ever want to use another one.
Like I haven’t spoken about these enough this month. I can’t help it though, I absolutely love them. The brand is QUAY and they are the ‘My Girl Black Sunglasses’. I don’t normally spend money on sunglasses. I usually pick up a £10 pair from new look and that’s me done for a could have years. But this year I had noticed a few people wearing them and I just couldn’t resist. They seem to fit my face so well and the shape is really flattering. I haven’t taken them off pretty much all month, and its been raining mostly so that just shows how much I love them. Dedication.
A shoe fave this month. I picked up these tassel sandles from ASOS as I needed a new pair for summer and my holiday. Aren’t they gorgeous. I’ve never really seen a pair like it and I think they are a little different from your bog standard sandles. Super comfy aswell so bonus!
I have one fashion fave this month and It has to be this maxi skirt. I picked it up a few months ago from boohoo for about £10 and I’m literally obsessed. I have a post about this outfit here if you want more details but I’m just concentrating on the skirt this time. It fits so well. It’s quite tight around the waist area but it becomes a lot looser at the bottom with a huge split up the side so perfect for hot weather. It’s just so comfy and stretchy. It Was perfect for when I went away and hopefully we will get some good weather in by the end of the english summer so I can wear it again.
I don’t normally do food favourites but I just had to include these. I had been dying to try these for ageessss but they are quite expensive for some cakes, Like £5 a box or something?! but I noticed they were on offer so I took the plunge and I picked ‘um up. I have to say, I understand why Tallahassee in Zombieland was so desperate to get his hands on some Twinkies. I’d fight zombies for them too. Okay, Slight exaggeration, but yeah they’re good.
