May Favourites

May Beauty FavouritesIt’s monthly favourites time again! As my Summer holidays begin I haven’t been wearing makeup on a daily basis but I did find some new gems this month that I have just fell in love with! Without further ado here are some of my much loved beauty bits from the month of May.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation – Nars has finally answered my foundation prayers. When it came to foundation I always struggled to find ‘the one’ but since this beauty came along my hunt may be over. I lusted over this for so long since its well and truly hyped and worth the hype it is! It blends like a dream, gives flawless coverage and has pretty good staying power too. The perfect foundation, more of my raves later though!

Essie Maximillian Strasse Her – This nail polish may come at no surprise after seeing my blog post in which I shared my love for it.  This minty-blue-grey hued shade is what I have had on my nails constantly over the month and I am obsessed. Like other Essie shades, its a great formula with pretty decent lasting power too. Love it!

Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Face Brush – Again this may have been another predictable option after I raved about it here. This brush also had a lot of hype surrounding it and I really wanted to pick it up for so long. It is just the perfect size for applying foundation and helps create such a flawless finish. As much as I loved my Real Techniques Buffing brush for foundation there is no going back now!

MAC Creme Cup – I’m so predictable. This month I really got drawn into the look of nude pink lips and this lipstick made a great addition to my collection. The cremesheen formula is smooth and creamy on the lips while the shade is the perfect soft pink great for everyday wear. Keep an eye on my blog next week, another nude lip is coming you way… surprising, not really! (Check my Creme Cup review here)

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish – This month I have really started to have a proper skincare routine after fumbling around with different products ever so often. One product I really wanted to try and pretty much needed was the ever so popular Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. As you will hear more about my love on this later this month I won’t go into too much detail but I do really like this. It makes my skin feel super soft and my skin hasn’t been this clear in ages!

MAC Creme Cup

MAC Creme Cup

Mac Creme Cup SwatchI’ve been on a bit of a nude pink lipstick hunt recently. Gone are the deep reds and berry tones and now I am lusting all over a classic nude lip. Like any good lipstick lover I headed to MAC *bows down* and came in contact with the beautiful Creme Cup shade, the perfect nude pink.

Finding a suitable soft pink shade for the lips can be tricky. Its easy to find a shade that’s far too light and washes you out but this shade is just the perfect colour. It’s a blue toned light pink that isn’t too light but also isn’t too Barbie. It’s such a soft and pretty shade that isn’t too much in your face and would look perfect with a more dramatic eye look or just simple natural everyday makeup.

Being from MAC, you would expect it to have a pretty decent formula and I can assure you it does. Creme Cup is a cremesheen formula so its super soft and moisturising on the lips with a slight glossy finish. There is also that familiar vanilla type scent from it that isn’t too overwhelming so shouldn’t be too much of a bother. The colour pay off is pretty good too and it doesn’t seem to stick to dry patches either. Looks like I may have found the perfect nude pink lipstick…
