Yes I took a couple of weeks off, I do have a reason, but that is something that is staying private, I was going to do a blog post on the issue, but I decided that I needed to give myself some time to let it sink in, and then came to the conclusion that a blog post would not be the best idea, and my mind was all over the place to try and write about something else.
All I seem to write about are favourites, but it is that time where a monthly favourites post is okay, and I can get away with it.
Most of these products are things that I have had for a while and have just recently started using, which I am kicking myself for not using earlier.
Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette
This is something that I am so excited to be writing about, as I have wanted it for so long, and in May, I managed to get my hands on it. This is something that I have genuinely wanted for a really long time and it was really rewarding when I had finally saved up to buy it. I’m sure that I don’t need to go on about this as it is something that everyone has heard of it, as it is a really popular product, but it is worth it, as the shades apply really well and it is impossible to pick a shade that I don’t like. It also came with a set of three eye primers, which I think is such a good idea; I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m sure they will be amazing.
Dove Summer Glow + Soft Shimmer Gradual Tan for Normal to Dark Skin
Self tan is something that I haven’t done before, so when I wanted to get into I decided that a gradual tanner may be a safe option, so I bought the light to normal skin from the same range, but it did nothing, now I know it is a gradual tan, so you have to apply everyday for however long until you start to go a different colour, but that was effort. After complaining about that my cousin gave me this one, saying that she doesn’t use it, but she thought that it’d be good for me. I never really used it much at the time, but I went town last week and didn’t want to look like a walking milk bottle, so I got this out and applied it a week before to test the results. It worked, it really worked. I did go a little patchy, but I’m putting that down to my lack of application skills. This does have a couple of down points, but they aren’t too bad; the first is the smell, this absolutely stinks, I know that this isn’t something to complain about as all self tanners smell, and this has that typical self tanner smell, but it’s bad, especially when you sit by an open window at college and the person next to you keeps getting whiffs of it every time the wind blows. The second is the fact that it has glitter in it, which is very noticeable; this is only a down point to me, as I don’t want my whole body to be covered in glitter. A good thing about this is that it is also very moisturising, and has made my skin feel incredibly soft.
Soft and Gentle 48 Hour Protection Deodorant Lotus and Watermelon
Deodorant is not something that I tend to branch out off, as I always used to use Sure and stick to that, but when I saw this brand I decided to give it a try because it was a bit cheaper and the scents sounded like they would smell nice, so I gave it a try. Now I know that deodorant is a bit of a weird thing to have in a favourites post, but I love this, as it does its job. It does not leave any white marks that I found some cans of Sure did. This deodorant also lasts, so they are no worries that the bad smell is you. This is just everything that a deodorant should be no white marks, a nice smell and the last benefit is the packaging, as it is clean and looks pretty.
So I’m pretty sure that I’ve included candles before, but throughout May I was really starting to burn them, as I sat at my desk and started to do some work, I would always have candles burning, as I thought it was a nice touch. My favourite candle is Season of Peace from the Christmas range by Yankee Candle, now I’m no expert with scents, but I think I have described in my first favourites post (or at least tried to).
I thought I’d include this as I have wore it to death. I got it from New Look in a pack of three, but this is the one that I have been wearing everyday. There’s not much to say about it other than it is on a small silver chain, and it has a small silver flower as the charm. When I say I wore this to death, I aren’t kidding; I wore it that much it made my neck turn green.
Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Blood Orange
This is something that I have had for a while, but hadn’t worn for a while, but when I wanted a classic red, I went to this one, as it is basically a pure red with high shine. It is just a gorgeous classic colour, and of course the polish from this collection has such a good formula; it is just an overall win,
So that is what I was loving throughout May, and yes I know that this is late, but better late than never aye?
