The last spring month has come to an end, which means we’re going in to summer, and I’m very excited about that. I just wish that the weather would be summery too, but it looks as if my wish might come true towards the end of this week. Another reason why I’m super excited about summer is that it means that the summer holiday is not far away. I’ve been working a lot lately (this time of year is always stressful, when you’re a teacher), and I really need a long break. But, I still have about four weeks of work left, and we also have some May favourites to talk about first, so let’s do that.
e.l.f. Cosmetics Blemish Fighting Putty primer: The original e.l.f Cosmetics Poreless Putty primer is one of my favourite primers, and when I first saw that e.l.f Cosmetics had come out with a Blemish Fighting version, I was very intrigued. My skin has been quite nice lately, and I don’t necessarily think that this primer has much to do with that, but I really like it, and I’ve been reaching for it quite a bit.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish powder (shade: 1 Fair): It wasn’t instant love with this high end powder, but love it became. I don’t know why I wasn’t blown away the first couple of times, I used this powder, but the more I use it, the more I love it. I think my skin looks stunning all day, when I wear this powder, so maybe it’s worth the expensive price tag after all.
By BEAUTY BAY Midnight 42 Colour Palette: I haven’t hauled this palette yet, but I think it’s been my most used palette in May, so I had to feature it. You probably know by now that I love both purple and blue eyeshadow, so this palette was pretty much made for me. And I really enjoy the By BEAUTY BAY eyeshadow formulas, so I’ve had a lot of fun playing with this palette.
MAC M·A·CStack mascara: This mascara has gone viral for a good reason. This is only a sample, but I really like this mascara, so I might purchase a full size at some point.
Lego Creator Expert Orchid: I really needed a fun, little project to de-stress, and I love orchids, so I had to have this Lego version. It’s always fun building Lego sets, and now I’ll always have an orchid in bloom.
