May has been a beauty packed month for me. I’ve been on crazy spending sprees and I need to hold back… but I didn’t. All in the name of the blog, right? But honestly, I will need to restrain myself a little more for June. I’ve found some gorgeous bits though, some that I’ve already given you glimpses of throughout the month, but now it’s time to round them up as the stars of May all in this end-of-the-month blog post.
First up is no surprise. The Dior Forever Fluid Foundation is what has been on my face all month. It is one of the most wonderful investments of the year and I can’t wait to keep using it as the summer comes round. I just don’t seem to get shiny with this one – it’s great! I also wrote an in-depth review on it earlier this month. In that I mentioned that it’s a demi-matte formula which I like for days where I want a bit more from my foundation. If you’re looking for something similar, definitely give this a whirl.
Eyes wise, the NYX Prismatic Shadows have been a firm favourite of May – in particular, the shade Golden Peach. It’s the perfect warm peachy shimmer to dust across the lid for a soft sun-kissed eyeshadow look. Again, I did a whole review/swatch post of these here, so take a look at that if you missed it!
With summer just around the corner, I’ve loving bronzer lately, with none other than the Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze & Glow. This gives such a stunning subtle contour and pretty highlight which makes my skin look just radiant. It’s a serious summer favourite, I can already tell that I’ll be using this non stop in the months to come. The bronzer a gorgeous satin brown-bronze, and the highlight is a glowing champagne shimmer without being chunky or heavy on the cheekbones. It’s perfect, honestly. Not to mention the packaging is so gloriously gold that my heart sings every time I see it in my makeup bag.
In terms of beauty tools, the micro mini beauty blenders have been making applying concealer a lot easier for me. They’re so small, they fit right into the small areas of my face – making them perfect for applying concealer underneath the eyes and around my nose! A bit of a princess product sure, as the original beauty blender will achieve the same thing – but I like the convenience.
You might remember my long term love for Nails Inc – they are one of my all time favourite nail varnish brands, and I’ve been loving them even more since their bottle redesign. The Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat Caviar is by far the best top coat I’ve ever tried – I’ve been using this forever but I never thought to mention it on my blog (until now).
Propercorn has literally become an addiction this month – you may have seen me obsessing over it on my Instagram. I am completely in love with their Sweet & Salty variety and I’m keen to try some more of their flavours (they have so many to choose from!). I could eat the whole sharing sized bag so I’ve had to separate it into portions so as to not let it get out of hand! This with some Netflix = a very happy me.
