Monthly Beauty Favourites | May 2014

This month hasn't been an overly exciting make up month for me. I broke my legs at the end of last month (sadface) and I'm still on leave from work so I've not been wearing make up anywhere near as much as I did previously. In saying that though, I've had a few make up orders arrive recently (see hauls here and here) and I've had a lot of fun playing with them.
The Stila In The Light Palette is a product that's incredibly raved about so I bought it recently and so far I'm really liking it. There are a few shades that I've found myself using a lot and I think it's a great everyday palette because everything you need is all in one place! The palette also came with a Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Damsel (a matte chocolate brown shade)  which I'm really impressed with also. I'm not a huge eyeliner pencil person but it's definitely rekindled my love for them! I've also picked up Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Black and I'm so impressed with it - It's definitely waterproof and it's really easy to use.

For lips, my bareMinerals Pretty Amazing Lip Colour in Moxie is absolutely beautiful. It's a really thick and incredibly pigmented lip gloss that adds a lot of shine and brightens the face. Whenever I need a pick me up this is the colour I've been opting for lately. Whenever I've got freshly groomed brows, much like I do at the moment, I find myself going back to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Skinny Brow Pencil in Medium Ash. I don't find myself reaching for it when my brows are a little unruly but I really do love it! Finally for make up, Essence's Silky Touch Blush in #10 Adorable* is so lovely. It's a sheer wash of coral pink and I love how shades like this brightens up my face. 

Finally, I have two non make up favourites. I totally forgot that I owned the 1 Skin Solution Guava Lemonade Candle and I've been burning it ever since I rediscovered it! It burns really nicely and smells absolutely beautiful. I'll be honest, I haven't really done my hair a lot this month. I've been a bit lazy when it comes to washing my hair (mainly because it's so difficult to stop two casts getting wet) so I've been reaching for the Cedel Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair* to save me a little. It's just rescuing the hair between washes and I love that there's no white cast on the hair!

Let me also mention that my No Make Up Buying May was an absolute fail. I blame the fact that I was stuck at home for my incessant online shopping. Oh well, now I've got so many new and exciting products to show you all!

Have you tried any of these products? What have you been loving in May?
