May Favourites!

May has been a good month as we have started to see glimmers of gorgeous Summer weather here in London, I’ve nearly finished uni for the Summer term, and I’ve generally been having a lot of fun!  In this post I have chosen to showcase my most used and favourite products from this past month!

Miss Dior Cherie Fragrance – This is my summer fragrance! I got my first one a few years back on holiday abroad with my girlfriends, and whenever I smell it I am reminded of then and all the fun we had and the great weather.  The smell is just delicious, elegant yet sweet, just delicious!  The bottle is obviously adorable also.

Estee Lauder Lipstick in Crystal Baby – This is possibly my favourite lipstick.  Its the one I wear the most, my go-to; the one I can slap on and know it looks good.  It is pretty much my exact lip colour but adds a nice even sheen and creamy pink finish.  It smells so good, its silky smooth and really moisturizes my lips and the packaging is just exquisite.  I will pop up swatches of this and my other Estee Lauder lipsticks up soon!

MAC lipglass in Live & Dye (Blonde-Brunette-Redhead Collection) – I’ve had this since Christmas when the collection came out but honestly never used it as it felt really sticky and just lame for Winter weather.  Now it is warmer I have been wearing this lots, over all lipsticks!  I didn’t realise how silky it made your lips feel, like you have a big layer of silk over your lips.  The colour is cute but doesn’t show much, this is my only MAC lipglass so I’ll probably try out another colour when it runs out!

Topshop Cream blush in Neon Rose – You can see my post on this product HERE! Its a gorgeous cream blush which I’ve been using over powder blushes for a pop of colour!

Carmex cherry lipbalm – Smells delicious, lasts a long time on my lips, cute little tub, moisturizes, SPF 15, what more can I say!

MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle – This is my favourite bronzer and the only one I normally use, ever!  I am so pale, as you all know by now, but this just gives a beautiful flush of golden shimmer over my cheeks an really brightens my face up.  I love it!

The Body Shop Face and Body brush – I actually have about three of these on the go right now, one for powder, one for blush and one for clearing up fall out from eye shadow!  It is the softest, most gentle brush I’ve ever used and I possibly couldn’t live without it now, haha!  These last a very long time, I’ve had my first one for three years now and its still in pristine condition (just wash it regularly!).

So there you go, my most used from the month of May!  I am so excited that Summer is nearly here and I think it is reflecting on the products that I chose as my favourites and what I’ve been using.  I’m sorry that I haven’t been updating as much recently, I’ve had a lot of work and essays on, but I promise to pop up some more swatches soon!

Is there anything in particular you girlies would like to see next?  Do you like my May favourites?
