May Favourites!

So I know I'm a little late on the favourites schedule, but being a uni student, this time of the year is pretty busy! Anyway, better late than never right? Here are my May favourites:

Colour Cosmetics

Revlon Photoready Primer
I've been using this just around my nose and cheeks where I have larger pores; just smoothing it on my skin (rather than rubbing it in) to create a base for my foundation. I find it stops me from getting oily in this area too!

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit
I did a review on this a couple of posts back! I've been wearing it constantly ever since I got it because it's so quick and easy and it's all I need on lazy days.

MAC Mineralise Concealer
I wear this in NC15 and it's the only concealer I've found to really brighten and cover my dark undereye circles. I couldn't go without it really!

Top: Summer Haze. Bottom: Shale

MAC Mineralise Eyeshadow in Summer Haze
This came out with the Naturally collection, and I had the hardest time finding it because it was sold out everywhere! But it was so worth it in the end. The colour reminds me of MAC's All That Glitters.

MAC Shale Eyeshadow
This colour is just so lovely. It is a purply, greyish brown and a lot of people have said that MAC's Shale and NARS Lhasa are dupes for each other. (I still really want Lhasa though, I think it's slightly more grey). It also really compliments brown eyes!

Skin Care

Korres Wildrose Skincare (Exfoliating Cleanser and Moisturiser)

These two together have worked amazingly to really brighten my skin and help lighten some acne scarring I have. I owned the moisturiser for a little while before I bought the cleanser, but when I started using them together, I really started to see a difference (I think that's the trick with skincare sometimes). Truly out of all the skincare I've used I've actually seen a difference with these products.


Revlon Colorstay Base and Top coats
These nail polishes are amazing! Flat out they're great. They make any nail polish (it doesn't need to be a Colorstay one) last at least 5 days with no chipping whatsoever. I really recommend them if you can get your hands on them (I think they're due to hit Australia in a few months).

Daisy Eau so Fresh by Marc Jacobs
This scent is really nice! Fruity and fresh without being sickly sweet. I wear it pretty much everyday and would buy it again and again!


  1. These eyeshadows look great *o*
    oh and I'm also in love with the nars Lhasa but unfortunatly I dont have it =(
    Btw this post was really nice! ^^
    xo <3

  2. Shale looks like such a gorgeous colour! And I really love the Revlon Photoready foundation and have been tempted a couple of times by the primer. Great post :) x

    1. I've never really got on with the Revlon foundations, I think they're a bit too much coverage for me, but I love the primer! I definitely recommend it (and I think it'd be cheaper in the UK)

  3. I adore the Wild Rose moisturizer! I received a Clarisonic Plus kit that included that moisturizer for Christmas and I absolutely adore it, every time I use it my skin feels so lovely! And I used to wear Marc Jacobs Daisy all the time until I ran out. Chanel Chance eau de toilette currently holds my heart, though. Great post! I'm so glad I found your blog. xx :)

    1. I'm so so glad too! Honestly I've missed hearing from you on these beauty things, it really means the world to me!
      I'm so so addicted to the Wild Rose moisturiser! For the first time in my life I think I'm going to repurchase a moisturiser because it's just done wonders for my skin!
