May Favourites

So I started this blog with the intention of updating it regularly unfortunately that clearly hasn't happened. Real life got in the way and I just haven't had a chance, however everything seems to have calmed down and I really hope to be able to pay my blog more attention from now on. I've got a good few posts planned and lots of products to rant and rave about (I'm even thinking of doing an outfit post *gulp*). I also want to say thanks for the lovely comments I've been recieving, I really appreciate them. It's really encouraging and I hope to be able to reply to them from now on!

Now on with my May favourites! (I know we're already almost a week into June but better late than ever aye?)

Woah, that's quite a bit of Pink! Also it took me ages to get a decent shot of them all and even now I'm still not entirely happy. This photography's a lot harder than it looks. Apologies if any of the products look a little grubby, I've been using them quite a lot the past month!

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover: Now I shant go on too much, I've pretty much made my point in my previous post. I'm still head over heels for this product though!

Benefit "the Porefessional": Now then I don't quite know which make-up category this would fall under, it's kind of a Primer but it can be used for touching up make-up too? Basically you smear it on your pores and watch them shrink before your very eyes. No, seriously they do! Plus if you're out for the day, glance in the mirror and gasp at your pores you can quickly pop some of this over the top of your makeup and it'll shrink them without damaging your previously applied make-up. It's almost an airbrushing effect it provides.

Nars "Orgasm" Blusher: I can see why this is such an adored product. It's a kind of peachy shade and can be both applied lightly for a hint of colour and packed on for a injection of colour. It has great lasting wear and gives me that lovely flushed look (and being a very pale person it can be very hard to achieve that without looking clowny).

L'oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim: The first thing to notice with this product is the nib. It is ultra slim and perfect for everyday usage when you need to be a little less bold with your liner and a little more precise. The pigmentation of this product is amazing, with one stroke you get a very slick deep black line. It lasts all day and I've had no problem with the pen drying out as of yet.

Revlon Lip Butters in "Cotton Candy" and "Strawberry Shortcake": Both pink shades, SS is brighter pink while CC is a more muted pink. Now there's been a lot of hype about these butters so I'm just gonna throw my opinion in there. I personally am a fan of the formula, I have quite dry lips and I love how hydrating these are on them. They apply quite sheerly (though can be built up) but somehow do provide quite a bit of colour. If I'm wearing quite a heavy eye look these are the perfect solution for what to wear with the lips. I'm sold!

Figs & Rouge Balm: My scent/flavour? is Rambling Rose and I'm going to be completely honest I don't particularly notice a strong smell. Now these came in the April Glossybox I believe so I won't go on too much about it as there's plenty of opinion out there but I like mines. It's provides decent hydration plus can also be used for dry patches on skin so it's a multitasker.

L'Occitane Brightening Hand Care: This product smells amazing! I don't even know how to describe the smell, organic maybe? It's quite a natural smell but it makes my hands feel lush after I've used it. I've also noticed a definate improvement in texture, they're a lot smoother and less dry than before.

And finally...

Tangle Teezer: My hair at the moment is probably the longest it's ever been. It's also quite thick and becoming increasingly difficult to manage, so when I heard about this I knew I had to have it. It doesn't really look like your traditional hairbrush and it doesn't really work as one. I mean you run it through your hair like you would a normal hairbrush but it does something magical and straightens out all tangles without any tangles and before you know it, your hair's all shiny smooth. 

I've included swatches of all the colour make-up products, from the top we have the Super Liner Perfect Slim, Nars "Orgasm", Revlon Lip Butter in "Strawberry Shortcake" then, Revlon Lip Butter in "Cotton Candy".

I hope you enjoyed my favourites and I promise to start blogging more consistently from now on!
