May Favourites 2017

It seems like these favourites post are coming out really quickly each time, but it’s the end of the month, so it’s time for the monthly favourites post! I’ve also not really tried any new products this month, so rounding up a selection is proving to be difficult.

Too Faced | Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Palette

I’ve included this in favourites before, but I have gotten back into using it lately, so it made perfect sense to include it here. I have been keeping things simple, and only using two of the shades which has been a nice change from using three or more. I just think this palette is extremely wearable, which is what I’m after in a palette. The shades are extremely pigmented and pack on extremely well, but also blend out just as easily.

The Body Shop | Lightening Drops

I’ve been really struggling with foundations lately they’re either too dark or too orange, so it made sense to try this out. The only thing with this is the dropper doesn’t work very well, so I often end up having to pour some out and hope for the best. It definitely really helps to lighten foundations.

Benefit | Hoola Bronzer

I bought this not long before the announcement of Hoola Light which was a bit gutting, as I would have definitely bought the lighter version. Hoola is a matte dark bronzer that lasts all day and applies nicely. I don’t apply too much, but you could easily apply more to get a stronger look. (Also really struggled with the photography of this, if you can’t already tell)

Yankee Candle | Cherry Blossom

I think this was a new candle for Spring, but I’m pretty sure it’s still available. I love everything about this candle from the scent, the colour and the packaging. It kicks off a lot of scent, not like some candles when all you can smell is burning and not the actual scent. I have no idea how to describe scents, so here are the fragrance notes off the Yankee website. Top: Cherry. Mid: Rose, Cherry Blossom and Jasmine. Base: Powdery Musk and Sandalwood.

What have you been loving throughout May?

Thank you for reading!

    I love Hoola, although I also think it’s a bit dark for me!

    • 5th June 2017 / 9:44 pm

      It is definitely a little dark, I apply the tiniest amount!xx

    I can relate with the foundation problem – I can never seem to find the ‘perfect’ shade for me. I’ve been using the NYX Pro Foundation Mixer in white and have been really impressed. Plus it’s only £8. x


    • 5th June 2017 / 9:45 pm

      So glad it isn’t just me! It seems really difficult to find that ‘perfect’ shade! I’ll have to look into that,it sounds great especially for the price, thank you!xx

    Lovely post! You are so right about the Sweet Peach palette, it is so wearable! xx Brynnie

      It is such a good palette! Ah hope you get around to using it again soon xx

  7. 5th June 2017 / 4:49 am

    I have that Benefit Hoola Bronzer and absolutely love it, the packaging is so cute and the quality is lovely. Yankee candles are the best, this list was lovely xx


    • 5th June 2017 / 10:05 pm

      So happy that you love it too, I totally agree that everything about it is lovely! They really are, they do some amazing scents! Thank you xx

    Hoola is still one of my favourite contour powders. I’ve heard great things about the peach palette too.

      It is such a gorgeous palette! Definitely agree with that xx

  15. 6th June 2017 / 7:02 pm

    I really wish I’d picked up the Peach palette it is so pretty, I use the NYX whitening drops, they are a godsend for foundations that are a tad too dark, I’ll have to try the body shop ones too, great post lovely xxxx

      I think it is still available from Debenhams and been brought out permanently! I must try those ones out, they seem so good! Thank you xx

  16. 6th June 2017 / 9:37 pm

    I have never heard of the Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops! It seems like such a great buy for me because I am always struggling with foundation shades. Great post ^_^

      They are amazing, they are super helpful if you struggle with foundation! Thank you lovely xx

  17. 6th June 2017 / 9:48 pm

    I’ve had my eyes on that Too Faced palette for ages now! It’s stunning and full of such pretty shades. X

      It is such a lovely palette, I hope you manage to get it xx

    I saw the foundation drops and they do look really cool, and they’re not overly expensive too. I’ve been loving my skincare more lately, as it’s just what my skin needs in this weather, so the superdrug serum and my Pixi glow tonic 🙂 x

    Velvet Blush

    • 7th June 2017 / 1:45 pm

      They’re super helpful if you have foundations that are the wrong shade! Everybody seems to love products from Pixi, the glow tonic sounds incredible xx

  19. 10th June 2017 / 7:35 pm

    Ooh I think I need those drops for my Kat Von D foundation that’s just a touch too dark! I know what you mean about their droppers though. I’ve got the Drops of Youth serum and that dropper is pretty terrible too.


    • 11th June 2017 / 12:21 pm

      Heard so many good things about their foundations! So glad it isn’t just me that thinks the droppers aren’t great; it really is pretty terrible!xx

  20. 10th June 2017 / 9:29 pm

    I have a few foundations which work really well for me but just a tiny bit too orange for my skin (can just about get away with them in the summer) but the body shop lightening drops are something that I want to try out soon. Also, the yankee candle sounds lovely! x


    • 11th June 2017 / 12:26 pm

      The drops really help, I hope you like them! It is a gorgeous scent!xx

  21. 11th June 2017 / 5:02 pm

    I can’t live without the lightening drops now! I also use them for cut creases instead of a concealer as the formula is a bit thinner so it doesn’t feel as heavy on the eyes. 🙂 Really want to try benefit Hoola too! The lighter one sounds perfect. X

    • 11th June 2017 / 6:26 pm

      Using it at a concealer for cut creases sounds like such a good idea! The lighter one definitely sounds amazing, but this one is lovely too xx

  22. 17th June 2017 / 9:55 am

    The Body Shop lightening drops are so handy. I keep them in my makeup kit! Although I’m thinking of trying to find a pump bottle for them because they are a bit messy, you’re right!

    • 17th June 2017 / 5:36 pm

      I don’t blame you at all, they’re so useful! That is such a good idea, the dropper just doesn’t work at all xx

  23. 19th June 2017 / 8:29 pm

    Lovely post! Now I desperately want the sweet peach palette. xx

    • 19th June 2017 / 10:17 pm

      Thank you! It is such a beautiful palette!xx

  24. 26th June 2017 / 8:31 pm

    Loving your favourites! The peaches eye shadow pallet is stunning! And the hoola browser is one of my faves. Great picks here hun.
