May 2014 - My monthly favourites!

After having taken an accidental break from blogging I'm back with my monthly favourites for the month of May!

Skin79 - Super+ BB
 This Asian BB cream has an SPF of 25 and it makes my skin look like airbrushed.  The great thing about it is that it makes me have a really great skin day and it doesn't look like I'm wearing Make Up. It goes on slightly greyish but within a couple of minutes adjust and creates a perfected, skin-like finish. People always comment on how great my skin looks when I'm wearing this!

MAC - Studio Sculpt in "NW15"
 This gives great coverage without creating a masque-effect on my skin. I love how it not only creates a flawless base and wears well on my skin but also makes me look more alive! 

MAC - Powder Blush in "Melba - matte"
This is a great matte shade which lends a natural flush to my complexion.  It works great for creating a neutral look and works well with peach or nude-coloured lip products.

NYX - Blush in "Taupe - matte"
This is a great contour shade for pale skin! 

Essence - 3D Eyeshadow in "08 Irresistible Vanilla Latte"

This neat little duo is a great, super affordable handbag and travel staple. It's super shimmery (so if you love matte eyeshadows this ain't for you) and the lighter shade works equally well as an eyelid colour and a browbone highlighter, I use the darker shade to create definition in the crease.
(These shades are very soft, so there is a bit of fall out but once on they look really beautiful)

Smashbox - Full Exposure Mascara
This mascara has been my favourite for months (see my review here) (and I have just purchased a new full-size tube).
It applies super easily and creates long, well-defined lashes without clumping.

Essence - I heart Extreme Volume Mascara
This is a great, budget-friendly alternative to my favourite Smashbox mascara! It creates length and volume at a very favourable price point!

Wet n Wild - Lipstick in "Fergie Daily"
This is a great neutral lip colour which works well with my light skin tone creating a nude lip look without making me look drained.

Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in "040 Rendezvous"
I love the minty smell of these and this was my bright spring/early summer lip of choice!

Too Faced - La Crème Color Drenched Lip Cream
in "Sweet Maple"
I love the super creamy and hydrating formula of this lipstick.  It lasts really well on me and I find the plumy-brown shade really flattering for a lighter complexion.

I'd love to know your May favourites!
