My April, May, June, July and August favourites!

DSC_2328

I am really going to condense everything I’ve loved in the last 5 months with a burning passion into one post? Yes, yes I am. Cos I can.

And let’s be real, this ain’t gonna be that long cos I have a real short memory nowadays and neither can I pin point exactly which fave is from which month cos I can’t seem to grasp the concept of time lately. Shit, did this really take 5 minutes to type?

My fingers know it’s been awhile since I’ve typed vigorously cos the keys feel real shallow on this laptop. Such a weird feeling.

Anyway on to numero uno;

My Recent Faves

IMG_2399

Okay, I hate that I have not posted more than once a month – if that lately. I’m just been struggling in the real world and this whole shindig has completely slip my mind but I shall delight you with my recent faves. I wish I could call this my April favourites but we’re halfway through may already, so who am I kidding?

Btw, this is just gon be a quickie because my attention span of late has been absolutely abysmal. It’s gonna be facts and figures guys.

1. Revlon Parfumerie Nail Polish in Orange Blossom

Now that the sun is finally making more of a semi permanent appearance I love and (feel more comfortable) wearing bright colours on mah nails, right now I’m lovin’ this super bright orange colour. It just screams ‘SUMMER I AM READY FOR YOU’.

2. Nude Magique BB Powder by L’oreal

I never really incorporated powder into my routine until last year and by the blessing of the beauty gods I so happen to pick up this magical thing, tbh the only other powder I have in my life right now is the L’oreal True Match and I prefer the BB powder so much more, it’s not super pigmented so I don’t feel like I’m adding more colour to my face and I find the finish of this powder so much more flattering and easier to blend back into my face — if y’all wear glasses you’ll know what I’m about.

3. Brow This Way by Rimmel

When I first got this I wasn’t like majorly impressed or anything but now I love it. So easy to use and it fills and sculpts my brows into harmony.

4. Eau Thermale Avene Water Spray

I know it seems insane to spend money on a water spray but this is so soothing, I personally love spraying this on my face when my skin is feeling angry and agitated and it just calms it alllll down. It’s also great to use after shaving, the cool mist makes shaving tolerable I swear. This is a bit of a luxury item so I only tend to use it when absolutely necessary (though sometimes I do get carried away) but I think it’s worth the investment especially if you have sensitive skin!

5. MUA Undressed Palette

Eyeshadows aren’t part of my everyday make up routine but from time to time I like to experiment with new looks and attempt to get it looking as flawless as Kathleen Lights‘. I love this palette because the colour pay off is pretty decent for something that only cost Β£4. Maybe a little primer is needed to really exaggerate the colour. This is a great purchase if you’re new to eyeshadow or you’re trying new colours!

What are your current faves? Also I’m shopping around for a new eye make up remover (drugstore pref) so I would love your recommendations!

Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Review

dreamflawlessfoundation

So this was one of thing things on my wishlist last month and when I saw it in store for Β£5.99 (it’s introductory price) I just had to get it. Can’t resist a deal.

The Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude is a ‘fluid touch’ foundation, it is essentially beigey coloured water, if you accidentally knock this over it’s gonna ruin your carpet forever so be extra careful handling this motherflower. I’ve never come across this formula before so I’m even more intrigued about it’s claims.

What makes this foundation unique also is the applicator, there’s a teardrop shape at the end of the wand and you are supposedly meant to drop a bit of the foundation onto your finger and apply it to your face. I have to say I don’t find that method very efficient for me personally as I’m also super clumsy so to speed things along I swipe and dab the wand on my face directly. It looks crazy and a little weird but it’s what works for me and I then buff the foundation in with my Real Techniques buffing brush (it is amazing and worth having in your brush collection if it’s not there already!)

Because I am such a klutz, the applicator and the way you have to dispense the product it’s not ideal for me. If Maybelline wanted to go with the whole dropper thing I think a pipette would have been a better idea, it would be easier and less risky to manoeuvre the product from bottle to your hand or face you know? But I have to say I do like the design of the wand, it is pretty but perhaps not the most practical.
