May has been a very weird month for me, with relatively little going on for me to get excited about. That being said I always find time to waste my money in a myriad of shops so here are my favourites for this horrific month.
BARRY M FONDANT GNP - £4
Pretty nails are a wonderful way of injecting some form of brightness in an otherwise bleak existence (I'm being dramatic because that's how I get in exam time - apologies). I adore this shade by Barry M called Fondant, it is a stunning colour and you already know that I love the Gelly formula. I think it is reminiscent of Berry Ice cream and would look great in the sunshine. I plan to stuff this into my suitcase for Greece and be on my merry way.
Next is what my most recent post was on and that is the Sculpting Trio from Real Techniques. Honestly, I haven't had much wear out of them all, but the sculpting brush itself is divine. I am so in love with this brush for foundation, let me know if you would like a foundation routine up soon. You can see the review of all three brushes HERE.
W7 LIGHTLY TOASTED PALETTE - £4.13
W7 Palette just has a great selection of colours with very little fallout so I find myself reaching for this palette quite a lot as I haven't been very daring or studious with my makeup application, typically o slather on some foundation and translucent powder and head out the door.
RIMMEL STAY MATTE - £4
Rimmel Stay Matte powder is a tried and tested product. I briefly went through a period where I favoured coloured powder because it helps blend out contouring and blush etc. But I find that can feel and look heavy on the skin so I am constantly touching my face because the sensation is unpleasant, a quick dusting of translucent powder and that's it I barely touch my face and I still have a good amount of coverage at the end of the day. The foundation, in my opinion wears better too.
NARS CASINO BRONZER - £27.50
Nars bronzing powder in Casino. I have definitely mentioned this several times. But I have hit pan on it and this never happens to me, I am so excited for the day that I hit pan on an eyeshadow but I don't see it happening anytime soon. I have too much. Anyway, Casino is gorgeous, it's not too orange and it's not ashy either, it's warm and adds some definition to my face without making it unrecognisable. Love.
L'Occitane Almond Milk Veil, it just smells so bloody good. I love the scent of almonds I think it's really clean and almost calming. Plus it has some shimmer so looks especially good in the summer time. It is supposed to have toning properties too but I haven't noticed a difference.
ASOS FOOTBED SANDALS
I bought two pairs of sandals in preparation for Greece. Now, I hate sandals, largely because I dislike feet and people seeing feet even less, also I think sandals are one of the least comfortable shoes around which completely defeats their objective. I hate that little T-bar that separates your big toe it's horrible. But, I need them so I had a browse on ASOS and bought two. I love them both.
They are called footbed sandals and genuinely feel like slippers. I think they're basic enough to pretty much go with any kind of holiday-appropriate outfit but interesting enough not too look boring. I am excited to wear them. The black ones have a thicker sole so would most likely provide the most comfort. Anyway, that is all, I hope you enjoyed this post. Have a fabulous weekend and I will see you soon. Don't forget to follow and comment, it means a lot to me. Take care.
