My May favourites seem to consist of quite a few new products that I've discovered in the last month or so and have really enjoyed, plus one or two old faithfuls. I should also have included some of the Barry M gelly nail polishes in here too (see my collection and swatches here), as I've been wearing them non-stop in the last month.
For lips in May it's either been a bright matte red thanks to MAC Ronnie red, or a pretty Barbie bubblegum pink hue with my new MAC raspberry swirl (review and swatches here). I've been keeping my lips smooth and soft with Blistex med plus lip balm - I don't really like the packaging or the smell / flavour of the product, but I love how well it moisturises even really dry lips.
For the hotter weather I've been using a much lighter moisturiser which doesn't leave me greasy, and that's REN's hydra-calm day cream (review here). I've been trying to go lighter on the foundation too, so I've been keeping redness away with L'Oreal's green toned CC cream, which also doubles up as a foundation for days when I just want a quick fix before dashing to the supermarket. I'm still loving my Benefit fake-up concealer and thoroughly recommend it if you want to conceal anywhere you have dry patches. And also my skin has been bronzed by L'Oreal's sublime bronze dry mist (review here) - well if it's good enough for Cheryl...
My favourite blush, bronzer and highlighter this month (although I've not been wearing them all at the same time - I'm far too lazy for the three step cheeks I envy on Tanya Burr) has been MAC's feeling flush, which I love to pair with red lips, NARS laguna bronzer which I've lusted after for ages and finally bought this month, and MUA's cheep but cheerful undress your skin shimmer highlighter.
My eyes have been treated to the NARS smudge proof shadow base (review here) which has been such a win product for me as it keeps my shadow still on my super oily lids. Having my shadow base sorted has really got me back into using my Urban Decay Naked basics palette, which may be boring but I love it. And finally for my brows I've been loving a quick cheat route which is saving me a few precious minutes in the morning - this *KIKO eyebrow expert kit has a cream brow shade that's perfect for running through my brows in a hurry when I don't have time to be carefully applying powder shades.
Were any of these products your favourites this month?
