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!

  5. Katie says:

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

  6. Jordan says:

    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

    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

  19. Laila says:

    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 ^_^

  20. Kate says:

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


  21. Velvet Blush says:

    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

  22. Emma says:

    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.

  23. Kirsty M says:

    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

  24. Alice says:

    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

  25. Morgan says:

    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!

  26. Siena says:

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

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