May Favourites

I really can't believe it's already June! Here's everything that I've been loving this past month :)



NARS Strada and Lhasa single eyeshadows - I've been loving these on their own and together! The formulas are great, creamy and long lasting. 


NARS Deep Throat Blush - reviewed here - I love this blush! It's perfect for any look as it doesn't overpower a dark eye or lip. It's subtle but beautiful :)


Dior Amber Diamond - I cracked and picked this up, it's just too beautiful too pass on! I've been loving this as a cheek highlight, it brings a nice glow without being over the top.


Garnier B.B. Cream - I've been loving this lately, it gives light/medium coverage, and is light enough for the warmer weather. I do wish that this had SPF in it though!

OPI Come to Poppy - reviewed here - This is one of my all-time favourite polishes! I haven't worn it in quite a while, but I decided to pull it out again this month. The formula is great, opaque in two coats and lasts forever!

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze - I've been wearing this as a base under a lot of the shadows in the Naked palette. I love creamy bases, and this one is a great shade and is opaque.


Covergirl LashBlast Mascara in Very Black - I used this mascara a lot in high school and I recently repurchased it. This is one amazing mascara, lasts all day without smudging or giving you "raccoon eyes".

NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Campo De' Fiori - I love the formula of these eyeliners, very creamy and long wearing. I like to wear this golden shade on my lower lash line instead of the traditional white. 

Marc Jacobs earrings - These were given to me from OPInionated by OPI for my birthday! I absolutely love them, I think that they are the perfect size, not in your face, but definitely noticeable. I love them :)



Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Liner in Smog - I love the formula of these liquid liners, I have a few of them but I've been loving Smog this past month! It's a nice golden brown with some shimmer. These last all day long and are super easy to apply!

Revlon Super Lustrous SPF 15 Lip Gloss in Coral Reef - I'm amazed at how pigmented this gloss is! I was expecting just a sheer wash of colour, but it's almost like a liquid lipstick! I'm very impressed, and I love the non-sticky formula. 


Yankee Candle Tarts - I've especially been loving Sun and Sand and Bahama Breeze, but those tarts are completely burnt so I don't have them to how you! These tarts are so highly scented, they fill my whole apartment. They are also so affordable and last a really long time :)

Those are all of my favourites from May, what have you been loving lately? :)

  3. Lots of great favourites! I love the Color Tattoo and Dior cheek highlighter! I dropped my cheek highlighter on the floor so I'm using it in pieces now :( I'm curious about the colour of NARS Deep Throat vs Orgasm?

    1. Oh no that's horrible! :( I'll do a comparison of Deep Throat & Orgasm - they're similar but not identical :)
