May Favourites

We are now officially half way through the year! June! My birthday month! And as you can see, my favourites are getting less and less spring/summery as we go along ha! This seems to be more of a winter favourites post! Quite a few of these favourites are fairly new discoveries, but there are also a few trusty favourites in there for good measure aswell! 

First up, i'll start with the newbies. The most recent of purchases would have to be the Nars All Day Weightless Luminous Foundation. Nars matched me as the shade Ceylan (light number 6), which personally I think is slightly a bit too yellow toned for me, but then my skin is really hard to find an exact shade match with any foundation. Trust me to be difficult ey! Upon first use, I was shocked at how watery it is! The consistency reminds me of the Yves San Laurent Fusion Ink Foundation that I recently swatched in town. It is incredibly thin and definitely can be describes as a LIQUID foundation. My one gripe with this has to be the staying power. On me (without a primer) it only stayed put for a couple of hours. So those with oiler skin should probably stay well clear of this unless you have an incredibly good mattifying primer! When teamed with the Benefit Porefessional, it really does last all day! The other day I had it on for nearly 12 hours and it still looked as good as it did when I first applied it!

I've loved pairing the foundation with the Nars Blush in Sin as I feel they complement each other perfectly. This blush is so lightweight yet buildable - it is a gorgeous berry shade with just a hint of shimmer running through it. I've been applying it with the Real Techniques Cheek Brush and I'm so pleased with the results! After applying the blush, I have loved using the red Lottie London brush to apply my highlighter. It is just the perfect size to apply product to your cupids bow or your brow arch. 

Another brush I've been loving is the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. I've been favouring eyeshadow over eyeliner a lot recently and this brush is my all time favourite for applying it. It is so soft and is brilliant for blending out into the crease of your eye. But then are there any Real Techniques brushes that are a disappointment?

Last month (I think) I was sent the Burberry Kisses Lipstick* in Sepia. When I received it, I mentioned that as soon as it runs out I'd be buying the full size. Turns out I couldn't wait and when Feelunique had a bank holiday discount day recently, I simply couldn't help myself. I thought it genius to keep the miniature sample size in my handbag for touching up whilst out and about. It is just the perfect shade for everyday and it's my new favourite go to lipstick!

And finally, do I need to tell you about this perfume again? We all know it has been in several posts before. Clinique Happy could be described by many as my 'signature scent' - I've been wearing it for yeaaaars! It is just the perfect fragrance blend!

Thanks for reading!
