I know it’s a bit late, it’s already the 8th but I thought it’s fine :) I really wanted to do this blog. Here’s my May favourites.
This is just my favourite beauty products I’ve been using this month and some randoms as well.
1. Rimmel BB Cream
I have it in the shade “Light”. I’m really loving this BB cream and it has a very sheer cover but it’s great for when I don’t feel like wearing to much makeup. It doesn’t have a strong scent unlike some other Rimmel products I’ve tried so it gets bonus points for that and my face felt soft and moisturised as well (I do still use another moisturiser as well though). It didn’t make my face feel oily like some other BB creams and had a semi-mat appearance. I used a flat top brush to apply it and it worked really well.
2. Essence XXXL shine lipgloss
One of my friends bought me this lipgloss in the shade nr 07 Big night out. It smells like strawberry candy and it’s not sticky at all, gives so much shine, quite pigmented, creamy texture and last pretty well throughout the day. I think Essence cosmetics are so under-rated the quality is great and so cheap!
3. Essence I ❤ Style liquid eyeliner
Normally I’m not a big fan of liquid eyeliner because it always seems to be quite runny, but this one isn’t like that at all. The application of this liner is easy, because applicator is smooth, and it’s very pigmented. The only problem I have with this one is, that I can’t apply thin line on my eyes with it. This liner is not waterproof. It’s great for everyday use, because it stays long on eyes. I’ve actually had it for quite a while, but I only started using it recently.
4.Yardley Quick dry nail polish
I have it in the colour “Candy Burst” and I’m just in love with that colour, it’s such a pretty colour, perfect for Summer or brighten up those dull Winter days. In order to achieve an even full colour I used 2 coats on my nails and it looks gorgeous and does dry really quickly which is always a plus. This is a really good quality, inexpensive nail polish. The nail polish has a great pigment and goes on evenly and smoothly.
5.Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair Oil Nutritive Express-Repair-Conditioner Spray
I love this product so much, every time I wash my hair I spray it on afterwards and it smells amazing! It acts a bit as a detangler and makes brushing my long hair much easier. I use heat styling way to much and every time before I’d use my straightener I spray some on my hair.
6.Neutrogena Visibly Clear® Pink Grapefruit Daily Scrub
I use this twice a day and quite a lot as you can see it’s almost finished. The smell is amazing, I love fragrant fruity smells, so that’s definitely a plus. I have oily/combination skin, and I bought this in an attempt to clear it up. In the few weeks I’ve been using it, my skin has gotten clearer. It doesn’t do much for existing spots, but in terms of preventing them, it’s pretty good. It also foams up nicely, without taking away the exfoliating effect of the microbeads. It does make my skin a little dry though but I use a good moisturiser and then it’s fine.
7.Dove Beauty Finish deodorant spray
I’ve used it for about two weeks now and I really like it. It smells really good and it lasts all day.
8.Kleenex Aqua hand&face wipes
I love having some king of hand wipe in my handbag at all times and my friend recommended this to me. I’m so glad she did because it makes me feel so refreshed and I think this will be especially good for Summer time.
9.DKNY be delicious perfume
I know it’s quite an old perfume but I just really love the smell of it and I got it as a birthday present. I use it quite a lot, it’s just so fragrant and it lasts all day!
10.Forever new pink and gold earrings
These are just the cutest little earrings ever! I wear them quite a lot and it goes with almost all my outfits. And they are just so pretty :)
11.Woolworths fleece throw
It’s Winter exam time in Stellenbosch, so it’s freezing cold and rains for days on end and this light pink incredibly soft blanket has been such a help getting me through late nights of studying.
12.Lana Del Ray Paradise Platinum edition
Wow I can’t stop listening to this cd! Especially the second disk, it’s amazing! I never really listened to her music until I heard Young and Beautiful from The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which I might add was such a gorgeous movie! Not sure if you can call movies gorgeous but that movie was absolutely stunning! I think I was born in the wrong era, would have loved to wear all those clothes and shoes! Anyways to get back to the cd, it didn’t disappoint at all.
Well that is all my favourites for the month of May, I hope you liked it and please feel free to comment ❤ xoxo
