It has been a good few months since I last did my last Favourites Post. I always seem to forget to show love to the products I reach for regularly. I don’t have the largest makeup collection but I try to rotate what I use and have found a few products I have been really enjoying this month.
I bought The Body Shop Coconut Body Mist £7.50 for 100ml whilst I was in Amsterdam last year. I sprayed it in store (for a cheeky freshen up). I ended up loving it and was so impressed at how long the scent lasted with it only being a ody Spray. I’m a huge fan of Coconut scented products and this Coconut Body Spray is lovely I highly recommend it. I want to try a few more from their range like the Vanilla and the Shea one too! They have a great range of these.
Pixi Glow Tonic Toner £16 for 250ml has gone mental these past few weeks. I bought it after reading Caroline Hirons review on her blog and have to say I am 100% on the band wagon with this. I love it. I managed to get a bottle from the Carnaby Street Store in April and have used it almost everyday since. It is great at getting rid of dull skin and making your skin look and feel vibrant. I’m going to be a life long fan of this I can tell. You can see what else I bought in Pixi here.
& Other Stories Fig Fiction Body Lotion £7 – I use Body Lotion everyday as I get such dry skin on both my arms and legs. I go through tubs of the stuff but I do like to have one on the go with a nice scent for a more luxurious feel and this Fig one is amazing. The lotion is so creamy and hydrating and the scent is my new favourite. Since buying this I have fallen in love with all things Fig and I have bought a Fig Candle from TK Maxx and it smells just like my lotion. I noticed that & Other Stories have a whole Fig range and this includes a Fig Body Mist – I need this!!
No7 Smoky Rose Eyeshadow Quad – this was free with the purchase of a No7 Mascara last year and I just love it. It is my go to when I travel as all the colours are wearable alone or to create a cute smoky eye & the lightest shade makes a good highlight colour.
MUA Bronzer Shade 3- £1 for 5.7g. This is the bargain of the century. This shade is quite subtle but you can build it up. I am trying to get into bronzing a little more & experimenting with contouring and all that jazz. I’m not the best at it and often I go a little OTT but its all trial and error I guess. But I do rate this bronzer and highly recommend it.
& Other Stories Linen Beige Naquet Eyeshadow £7 for 2.8g – I have been wearing this all over the lid on days I don’t want to wear too much makeup. It’s a really brightening colour and has a shimmer metallic finish to it too. Perfect nude taupe colour.
EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet £5.95 – These lipbalms smell so good and are quite fun. I love their sphere packaging this makes them easy to apply. I also have the Summer Fruit one too. I love them both and are hand to have in your bag.
Accessorize Baked Blush in Scandal – £5 for 8g – My particular blush is no longer for sale but they do have a similar one. You get a lot of product for £5 and it is the perfect pink blush colour for summer and with the gold veining it gives you a slight shimmer but nothing too glitzy. It is a soft rosy pink and I have fallen back in love with it. How cute is the packaging on this? It ticks all the boxes for me.
Garnier BB Cream Combination to Oily Skin shade Medium £9.99 for 40ml. This is perfect for me when I have a slight tan as I got the shade medium which is quite dark. I love the finish this gives, it makes your skin look healthy and glowing but not greasy like other BB creams. It also lasts a good 6 – 7 hours on me which is something as I get so Oily through my T Zone that nothing ever lasts as long as they claim. I do powder my T Zone and the helps. This is just so easy to put on when you want a nice even light coverage.
So they’re my May Favourites. I would love to know if you have been using any of these products or if you have written a May Favourites post.
