May Beauty Favourites



As it is the final day of May, I thought I would show you my ten favourite beauty products of the month! I hope you like it!

The Products

Nude’Tude Eyeshadow Palette By TheBalm Cosmetics!


I have been reaching for this palette almost every day this month! The variety of colours and finishes can give me anything from a really subtle natural look to full blown vintage glam! It is hardly a new product on the market but I genuinely love it so much and think it is worth every penny! Here is a look I created using this palette!


L’Oreal Colour Riche 5ml Nail Polishes


These two nail polishes were only £1.99 each on Fragrance Direct and they put a lot of my high end expensive nail polishes to shame! They look like salon quality and they are such beautiful, true reds! Every girl needs a beautiful red nail polish and these are so affordable and lovely.


Boots Traditional Cold Cream Cleanser


This cleanser is so good and it was only £2.50 from the drugstore!!! I am normally very brand loyal when it comes to skincare and I only ever use Liz Earle, but this month I decided to give this cold cream a go and my skin has not broken out at all except for one tiny spot due to hormonal acne. It was great as normally I get a really bad breakout once a month but this is such a simple cleanser and it is really cheap!

Dirty Works Glow Girl Salt Body Scrub


This scrub is only £4 in Sainsburys but it rivals my more expensive scrubs easily. It leaves my skin super soft and as it contains pumice, it makes a great foot scrub for when I fancy a spa style pedicure. It also smells DIVINE! You simply must try it!

Guerlain  Insolence EDP


This gorgeous perfume from Guerlain contains notes of violet and iris, given a modern edge by a dash of berries. It is so delicious and moreish and has a really sexy, sultry smell whilst still being light enough to wear each day! It is sweet, spicy and allover beautiful. I love it!

Mont Bleu Nail Care Tools (AND DISCOUNT CODE)


This month, I was kindly sent some nail care tools by Czech brand “Mont Bleu” to try and I adore them. I am very careful about what I use on my nails, but I have noticed a significant difference in the strength of my nails and I have not had any breaks since using their tools! The swarovski file is such a show stopper and it works beautifully. If you want to try any of Mont Bleu’s products, they have given me a 20% off discount code for you guys. Simply type in BLOG at the checkout!

YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara


This mascara literally makes it look like I am wearing false eyelashes. It is so beautiful, smooth and long wearing with zero clumping and flakiness. It is a little pricey but it is definitely worth the money! I only need one coat of this to give me the desired effect I am going for.

L’Oreal Detox Charcoal Mask


I have used this mask once a week this month and I have noticed that my skin looks much healthier and has a lovely glow to it! It works really well at calming my skin, reducing inflammation and redness and making me look more awake. It is really gentle on the skin as well and isn’t too fragrances so its just a very pleasant product to use.
