May Favourites, 2013

Holy cow, it's time for another favourites post! How does that even happen? Today marks 38 days until my 21st birthday and only 22 days until my party. Eep, so exciting. Enough about that though, let's get into my favourites. I have a number of beauty products, all of which are reasonably new to me, and I can't wait to share them with y'all!
I didn't realise that I featured the new Revlon Colorstay with pump foundation in my last favourites post but, as it turns out, I did. Why? I must love it that much! This foundation applies so nice, provides fantastic coverage and stays for such a long time! 

For my eyes, I've been loving my MAC eyeshadow palette. This palette has Brule, Ricepaper, All That Glitters, Patina, Charcoal Brown, Carbon and Wedge in it. To see swatches of them, click here. I find that these shadows create beautiful eye looks and it's so convenient having them all in one place. Along with these shadows, I've been loving another two eye products; MAC Eye Kohl in Smolder and Estee Lauder's Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara. The eyeliner is so smooth and smokes out beautifully and, if you've read my review, you know how much I love the Estee Lauder Mascara!

A while ago a blogging friend, Jenny from Shopping Queen Jen, held a blog sale (NOTE: Jenny holds these quite frequently. Everything is super cheap and the products are amazing) and I picked up the MAC Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze, along with a trillion other products. I'm really enjoying this bronzer to contour with, though I think it's too dark to just 'warm up' my face with. 

MAC Pink Lemonade Lipglass is one of my favourite lip products; It's up there with MAC Creme Cup. I keep this Lipglass in my hand bag at all times, using it to touch up throughout the day or add colour to my face. It's just a beautiful, beautiful colour! 

I'm not going to talk about the Aveeno Naturals Daily Moisturising Lotion because I just uploaded a review of it. If you want to see exactly why I love it, click here.

The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant has been a real favourite of mine this month! This is one of the newest additions to my skincare routine, after finishing about 5 sample sachets of it. I love how this product smooths out my skin. I'll be featuring this in my next post, my updated nighttime skincare routine, so stay tuned! 

Finally, I'm loving my Sony PRS-T2 eReader! I bough this eReader at the start of this month and I've been using it so much. I spend at least two hours on the train every workday now and I love the fact that I know I always have something to read with me! So far I've finished a few books on it already so I'm just wondering, would you like to see a post on what I've been reading lately? 

What have you been loving this month? Have you tried any of these products? Also, what books are you loving at the moment? I'd love to know! 

Always look your best,

  1. That lipglass looks gorgeous!
    And I wish I loved the Revlon colorstay foundation as much as you do :( I think I'll give it another go because it's a shame to not use it.

  2. SO jealous you got your hands on a clear Mac palette! I've been trying to for ages but it's always sold out.

  3. Would love to know what books you have been liking lately :)
    the colorstay foundation with the pump makes so much more sense than the pot one I have, will have to pick up the pump next time.
    Enjoy your weekend :)

  4. Haha I'm running out of makeup to sell :P I think I've successfully culled a lot of my collection! probably about 60% of it now :) I'm also jealous like Sarah that you got a clear MAC palette.. they're always sold out.
