May Favourites

by - June 03, 2016

Hey everyone, I can't believe it's June already! It seems like two seconds since my April favourites. Anyway, on with the favourites. I hope you enjoy this post, and I will see you all very very soon!

Tanya Burr Hollywood Palette

I rediscovered this palette at the start of May and now I am completely obsessed with it! It has four really long wearing, pigmented shades. Tanya released 3 of the palettes, and this is the brown nude palette. The shades all have gorgeous and fun names: Nude Delight, Gold Coin, Enchantment and Bookworm. I think, that the shades would look good on any skin tone and this palette was also very affordable (it was only £6)!

Zoella Beauty Two Balmy Set

I got this when it was released in the limited edition Christmas range back in December and I can honestly say these are up there with my favourite lip balms ever. The Vanilla Cream scented one is a really nice bright pink that is perfect for spring/summer. The other scent (Sweet Mint) is a nude shade that doesn't have loads of pigment but leaves a really nice glossy shine on the lips which I think would look really nice if you didn't want to go really heavy on the lips. They are so moisturising and pigmented. Unfortunately, you can't get your hands on these anymore as they were in the limited edition range but hopefully, Zoe will release something similar this year!

Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush

This brush is incredible! I don't know if I have put this in a favourites before (but if I did sorry) so I thought I would throw it into this favourites to tell you all a bit about it. This came in the Starter Set and unfortunately you cannot buy it individually. This brush, is the best brush at packing eyeshaodw onto your eyes and leaving a really nice finish. They are so soft and I think, if you have one of these but you use a different brush for base shadow, you could use it as a blending brush as it's really fluffy and reminds me a bit of the MAC 217 brush.

Zoella Beauty Lets Spritz Body Mist

THIS IS COMING OFF SALE SOON SO GET IT WHILST YOU CAN! This was the body mist which was released with the Tutti Fruity range last year and that range is being replaced with the Sweet Inspirations so stores, and online, have limited stock left. I think I can honestly say that Zoe releases the best body mists. This is a gorgeous scent for summer as it is a light fruity scent but I think it would nice all year round really. The packaging of this is also so gorgeous - the spray itself looks pink in the bottle but doesn't come out pink and then there is a lace detail on the back on the bottle that you can see from the front. I have been loving this all the way through May and I'm really sad it wont be sold for much longer. Zoe's sprays are also super affordable as they are £8 for a 45ml bottle

EcoTools Airbrush Concealer

I have been using this brush for a fair few months now but it has only been through out May that I have really started to love it. It blends concealer gorgeously on any blemishes and under the eyes which is a bonus as some brushes can't do both. The brush itself feels really nice to use and it's really soft. I found, that at first the brush would moult a little and would have to brush the bits off my face but that doesn't happen anymore. I find this is really good quality for the price it is (£5.49).

Zoella Beauty Fizz Bars

This favourites is turning into a bit of a Zoella shrine but oh well. I am obsessed with her fizz bars. For those of you who don't know what a fizz bar is, it's a bar of bath bomb that you break of into squares and plop into your bath and it makes the water smell super nice (it's kinda like a bath bomb chocolate bar). Zoe has released fizz bars with every range so far and I think they are such a lovely, unique idea. The only one I currently have left, is a mini fizz bar from her Limited Edition Christmas Range, but they are still being sold in the full size in the Classic Range (a fresh floral scent) and the brand new range, Sweet Inspirations - the fizz bar in that collection is called Le Fizz which is probably my favourite name out of the whole collection.

Happy Hippos

I am obsessed with these right now!!!!!!! They are cute little wafers in the shape of hippos which have a hazelnut filling and a milky filling. Then, on the outside there is crunchy little meringue bits! They are amazing, and I don't really have much else to say about them to be honest. (By the way, they are £1 from Sainsburys).

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer

My final favourite of the month, is this under eye primer. It basically sits under your eyes, and hydrates the skin as well as making concealer sit so much better. The only downside is the price, I have a mini version from a set I got. For the full sized version it's £21 and I just can't bring myself to pay that much for an under eye primer, so I have decided to save up my advantage card points in Boots. haha. It will be a sad sad day when I run out of this. If you know if this comes in any sets, let me know down below.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, and I will see you all very very soon,

Love Lou
