Monthly Favourites | April and May

Monday, 19 May 2014

Hi beauties, I'm back with another favourites post and I actually can't remember the last time I posted one! Now, I know monthly faves are supposed to be well .. a monthly thing but I feel like I use the same products over and over again so I can't do this post every month! Well in saying that, I'm excited to share some new favourites for May with you guys and also some products you might have seen before.
Let's start with foundation! I'm lusting over the new L'Oreal Eau De Teint Foundation which I bought during Priceline's 40% off sale (read it here) which is great for everyday wear. The consistency of this foundation is light and blends seamlessly into the skin without making my skin look cakey. For my oily skin gals out there, get on it!

A new favourite mascara, hallelujah! I've been gravitating towards the L'Oreal Butterfly Wing Mascara in Waterproof after purchasing it for $15 at Big W. It's has a great formula which helps to hold curl and also define and lengthen my short, sparse lashes. I've also noticed that it doesn't smudge underneath my eyes which I see with the Maybelline The Colossal mascara. Definitely repurchasing when it goes on sale again!
I've been really loving the Too Faced Sweethearts blush in Peach Beach because it adds the right amount of warmth and glow to the cheeks and suits perfectly with any makeup look. I strongly suggest you guys to walk into Mecca, swatch the blush and also apply it onto your face because it's freaking gorgeous and it's worth the $42! They're currently on sale on Beauty Bay for $32.20 if you're interested!
If you guys haven't read my last post, the L'Oreal Moisture Matte Lipsticks (read it here) have stolen my heart with they're amazing colour payoff and shade selection. If you love a good matte finish I would totally recommend them! I think I'm in a big L'Oreal phase right now .. they make some great products.
The NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer is now a holy grail item of mine as it is to everyone else on the blogosphere! I really do think this product is worth the hype because it's lightweight, blendable and matches my skin perfectly. It also has a doe-foot applicator which makes life so much easier compared to MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer which has a pump which is so hard to control how much you wanna dispense. It does take time and practice, but with NARS, its all simple!
I bought this towards the start of May for my sister and I and it's the Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion. I've heard so much about this product but never had any interest in it as it wasn't captivating in what it did. After using it for a few weeks now, I can say that this is my favourite body wash of all time. It leaves the skin milky soft and smells amazeballs.
Last but not least is my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette which has been a massive hit on YouTube and also through other bloggers. I definitely think that this is my go-to palette at the moment until I find a new love. It has a great selection of shades varying from creams, browns, golds and deeper shades such as violet and dark browns. It's also currently on sale on Beauty Bay for $60.50!*
