May Favourites

Hey everyone! In this post I'm going to show you a few beauty products that I have been loving during the month of may. I have makeup products to show you, along with some hair products too:
 
 
I have done ALOT of shopping this month and I've picked up a huge amount of makeup and hair care items (defiantly way more than I need!) but I've found some amazing products that I'm excited to share with you all.
 


 
 
Firstly, my favourite hair care product of the month has to be this Lee Stafford bleach blondes tone correcting conditioning spray. Firstly, the colour of the product is amazing! It's purple based which helps target brassy tones in the hair with sparkles dispersed in the liquid which helps to give my hair an amazing shine. I'm a natural brunette so I need to bleach my hair every month in order to keep my hair blonde, which often makes my hair very brittle and damaged. But this product is amazing at keeping my hair looking healthy and shinny, and toning the brassiness. I apply this product to wet hair and blow-dry as usual. It doesn't leave my hair feeling weighed down with product as most hair care product do, and helps to maintain any cool toned platinum shades in my hair, and for £8.99 this product is a must have for any blonde!      
 
 
 
My next favourite of the month is this Clinique beyond perfecting foundation which I absolutely love! I have this foundation in the shade Alabaster which is slightly too dark for me, so I tend to wear it when I have a tan. But nevertheless this product is still incredible. I decided to pick up this foundation as its a two in one product- both foundation and concealer. Although I still have to use concealer when wearing this as it doesn't quite cover everything I need it to, the coverage is defiantly medium-high so a little bit of product defiantly goes along way. I have very oily skin and this foundation seems to last very long on my skin- which is a quality that I struggle to find in a foundation. The applicator is similar to that of a lip-gloss, which sounds unusual but I found it to be really handy as It meant that I didn't waste any product. The only negative of this product is that it does sometimes settle into the creases of my skin, but for £25 I would defiantly recommend.  
 

    
 This was my first ever NARS product that I've ever purchased, but I absolutely love it. This NARS Copacabana illuminator is a liquid highlighter which can be used on any highpoints on the face to give an amazing shine to the skin. Liquid highlighters have always scared me as I have oily skin, therefore I though that this would be hard to use as it would make my face look like a giant glitter ball!. But after using this a few times, I absolutely adore it. It's a pinkie toned highlighter that's blends into the skin really nicely, and lasts on the skin all day to give an amazing glow- perfect for summer!
 

 
Lastly, but certainly not least I have this MUA luxe velvet lip lacquer in the shade harmony. Liquid lipsticks have become very popular lately, but some of the top end liquid lipsticks can be very pricey, but for £3 this product is a steal! The colour harmony is a brown/nude colour which has a matte finish. It does feel a bit dry on the lips but the pigmentation is amazing for the price and it lasts a long time, making it a perfect and easy shade to wear during the day.   
 
 
Here is a picture showing a few of the product I have mentioned. I have the Copacabana highlight along the highpoints of my face (the bridge of my nose and check bones) with the MUA lip lacquer on the lips.
 
I absolutely love all the product I've mentioned in my post- and I recommend everyone to try these products out and give them a go, hope you enjoyed!

  2. I stumbled upon your blog by complete accident but I love the layout and look of it omg!
    I also really really really want the NARS illuminator and Clinique foundation. I've never actually owned anything from NARS, thinking everything is a little overrated, but this looks absolutely stunning I can't lie...
    You're absolutely stunning too!
