Monthly Favourites | May 2014

posted on: Monday, June 2, 2014

I can't even believe that it is June already! My comprehensive exams are coming up this month, and I don't even know how it's snuck up so fast. I feel like I just started my masters, but at the same time it feels like I've been doing this forever. 

I haven't done a monthly beauty favourites post before, but I've been wanting to do one for ages, I'm just never on top of it. Time just seems to fly by and I'm taken by surprise by a new month. 
So here are some of my favourite beauty products this month. 

First, I've had NARS bronzer in Laguna for several months now but was determined to finish up one of my other bronzers before I started using it. I finally decided that I don't have the patience for that, so I broke out Laguna sometime during May and it's the only bronzer I've been using since. I've also gravitated towards my NARS And God Created the Woman palette during May. I've been using my new Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Nude Compliment as a base then wearing different combinations of all the shadows. The colour I tend to wear the least out of the palette is Night Clubbing (bottom right), but I would say I get a lot of use out of all the other colours. 

I have a few blushes that I wore a lot during May, but I've probably worn the Bourjois Cream blush in 02 Healthy Glow the most often, and near the end of the month I really started obsessing over it. It's a cream to powder formula and the texture is so lovely. It also blends beautifully, and the colour is perfect for summer and spring. 

Something new to me is the Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray*. I've used it everyday since I received it and am really loving it a lot! It goes on as a fine mist, and it's oil and paraben free. It's so easy and quick to use to use. I'll have a full review of it coming up soon!

What are your current favourite beauty products?
