May Favourites

May has been super busy, but who I am kidding, this whole year has been super busy so far. Despite running around university all month like a crazy woman, I've still managed to accumulate some new favourites here and there. I have been trying my best to switch up my products and take advantage of my entire collection.

The goods

The lovely Daria sent me Mac's Cream Colour Base in Hush in our swap last year and I knew straight away that it was going to be an amazing natural highlighter, and I have really been liking the look it gives this month. Having a peachy tone means that it melds really well with my skintone and looks simply radiant. This is a must have product for me!

The lovely Gaelle threw this MUA cream blush in Blossom in as a freebie when I purchased a couple of Nars Eye shadow duos from her blog sale, and wow if this isn't the nicest colour ever, a perfect nude pink. This cream blush has such an amazing texture, I couldn't believe how cheap it is. It feels very high quality. I want this colour in a powder blush now too!

After I used up my Mayebelline Fit Me Concealer last month I allowed myself to pick up Mac Pro Longwear Concealer than I had heard so many good things about. It definitely stood up to expectations, this is long wearing, high coverage, heavy duty concealer. This is also a lot more transfer resistant than Fit Me, which is what I was really looking for. Would highly recommend this!

Covergirl Wine to Five was a part of the swap I did with Shell at the start of the month. This is my favourite dark nail polish at the moment, it has just the right amount of wine red and berry. The formula is fantastic too.

 I can't believe I haven't blogged about the Face of Australia Brow Kit yet, but spoiler alert - I love it. It contains really cool toned brown shadows that really prevent that weird warm eyebrow look. They also make amazing eye shadows, which is what I have been using the darker shade for, as it's too dark for my brows. Despite my love of the brow powders, the tinted wax is my actually my favourite part!

I have had this Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencil in Sable Brown sitting around in my drawer for at least a year, but this month I randomly got it out and gave it a good workout. It's not as smooth and soft as the new Scandaleyes Rimmel eyeliners, but I love it none the less. The colour is just perfect for me.

My current favourite TV Show is RuPauls's Drag Race. It is a reality show about drag queens competing against one another to be the best drag queen. It's sassy, bitchy and they all have fabulous makeup. I love it.

My favourite picture this month

I am excited for June, it's the end of my uni semester and the last two episodes of Game of Thrones!



  1. I am so glad you're using Blossom. It just didn't show up at all on my face! That brow kit looks fabulous x

    1. Thanks so much for throwing it in, it was so sweet of you! :D

  2. Love the colour of that polish. I own too many of that kind of shade but I WANT! Haha.

  3. I've been eyeing off the Mac Pro longwear concealer :P definitely getting it now if you're happy with it :)

  4. Such exciting products in this post, the FOA brow kit really caught my eye...must pick it up sometime.

  5. That concealer sounds amazing! And I'm eyeing that FOA brow kit :P

  6. The Pro Longwear concealer looks pretty awesome, and that polish is so pretty!

  7. These all look lovely! The nail polish is such a lovey colour, and I'm definitely going to have to check out that MUA blush next time I'm in Superdrug

  8. Hush looks lovely! I've been using my Rimmel Soft Kohl eyeliner for the longest time. It's my go-to eyeliner. :)

  9. Ooooh the brow kit looks so nice! i have not yet found my perfect brow kit T.T
    the cream blush from MUA looks so pretty!
    You like Ru paul drag race?? I am obsessed with it!!! it is sooo good, isn't it?

  10. Rimmel's eye pencil and the blush both looks gorgeous!

  11. The Covergirl polish looks fab! I must pick it up next time I see it on sale!

  12. face of australia has some great stuff. we love their lip crayons. where do you buy you MUA products from?

  13. Oh yes, Game of Thrones. Can't believe the season is about to end (again!). You have to wait forever for the next season each time. Sigh.

    I need to start watching that drag queen show!

    I have that CG nail polish and I really like it too - it's a great shade for autumn/winter. That MUA blush looks to be a lovely colour - I've only tried their eyeshadow palette in Heaven and Earth but have heard some good things about their blushes too.

  14. I've been looking for a new eyebrow powder. Would you say the FOA one is a cool toned brown? Or any recommendations for a cool toned brown?

  15. I love a nude pink blush. The Blosoom and Hush ones look really pretty.

  16. The MUA blush looks soo pretty! I love Hush too but I prefer to use it as a base for my blushes, I don't know why I don't like it as a highlight! The FOA brow kit looks amazing, I might have to give it a go, I didn't know it had a wax in it. xx

  17. Hush is BEAUTIFUL.
