May Favourites 2014

Where the beep has May gone? I feel like it was only yesterday I was filming my April Favourites but hey ho! Unfortunately I couldn't film my Favourites this month due to revision and exams but I thought I would chuck everything into a post for you.

On the makeup front I have really been loving my Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipstick in the shade 08 which is a gorgeous pinky nude. I tend to go more for pink toned nudes than browns as they just suit me better. The formulation of all the Kate Moss lipsticks are just lovely, and this one in particular is so creamy to apply. Next up is the Benefit Porefessional. This is defiantly a staple piece in all beauty bloggers collections, I feel. Its just the most perfect primer and it leaves me with a super soft base for my foundation, covering up my pores. It does have a very silicone like feel to it but I weirdly love this. I tend to use it on nights out, and when I rock in at 5am my face makeup still looks good - you can't complain. Lastly on the makeup front is my MAC PaintPot in Soft Ochre. Its just a perfect cream nude base for eye shadows, and it neutralises my eyelids making the colours I apply more vivid. It prevents creasing a little and definitely makes my eyeshadow stay on way longer than it used to.

In terms of haircare there hasn't been an awful lot different this month but I will give a shoutout to my favourite shampoo and conditioner combo; The Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Repair Shampoo and the Dove Hair Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner. My hair is super dry and just generally gross at the moment so the intensive repair shampoo has really been making my hair look more healthy and the conditioner has made it super silky and shiny. If you have dyed your hair a lot or have super damaged hair I would really pick up the Shampoo and Conditioner especially, I really can see the difference in my hair and they're super cheap! Secondly, I have really been loving the volumised hair look this month and since I have very thin hair its a hard look to achieve. I found this VO5 Dry Texturising Spray at the back of my haircare stash and started giving it a go, just spraying it into the roots and giving it a little rub. It works a treat my friends, my hair looks so much more volumised and thick when I use this and it was only like £2!

Lastly the random bits and bobs! Theres only really two favourites I have to go in this category and the first one is a new show I have been watching called Orphan Black. Its basically a show about a woman who watches another woman commit suicide and she steals her identity, only to find there are a few shocking secrets. I don't really want to say any more because it will completely spoil the whole show for you if I do, but its hilarious, serious and gripping all at the same time. For anyone who watches it already; how brilliant is Helena please...favourite character by miles. The last random favourite is an app that I am sure you are all familiar with, Depop. If you aren't familiar with it, its basically a site where you can sell unwanted clothes/makeup/items. I have found some serious bargains on there and have also managed to clear a few unwanted items out of my wardrobe that I would never have worn again. Its all free but Depop do take a small cut out of the profit you make on any sales. 

What have you been loving this month? I love getting recommendations so please drop me a comment!

  1. I must try the Dove shampoo. My sister has been pestering me about it. Since it's really that good, I might as well give it a shot.


  2. I adore Kate's matte lipsticks, I have quite a few but I haven't seen this one yet... I think a trip to Boots is on order!
