May Beauty Favourites

I haven't done a beauty favourites in so long and it's actually taken me quiet a while to think of the products I have been loving this month and not just products I'm loving at the moment, I was just going t do a current beauty favourites, but I thought I would get back into a routine of doing monthly favourites as it was getting towards the end of the month.

Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Puree (£8.00)
I bought this just before Christmas as you may know from the haul I did and to be honest I kind of just chucked it to the back of my collection and recently as I have been trying to use products up and then I found this one so started using it and I loved it. Its a really moisturising and is more of a gel texture which means it sinks in super quick but still gives the soft feeling a body butter does, so this is perfect to put on in the morning, as we all know how hard it is to get skinny jeans onto moisturised legs! From reading a few blogs recently I have realised how important moisturising is due to the shower gel basically stripping all the moisture from your body so you want to put it straight back in, also in the summer it will help your tan last longer!

Tesemmé Smooth Memory Spray (£4.99)
I actually bought this a while ago and had mistaken it for a heat defence spray, but I'm glad I did as this is such a nice product and also contains argan oil which is super good for your hair. It comes in a big bottle so you get a lot for your money and I spray it into my hair while its damp and just spray it evenly a few squirts on each side, each spray is also really dispersed so doesn't just target one bit. It leaves my hair feeling so smooth and sleek and has definatley made a big difference into how my hair is and this could be a new staple product in my hair care routine, let me know if you want to see my current hair care routine.

Rimmel Colour Rush Balms (£5.99)
To be honest these have been favourites for a while but I have been loving them this week and I couldn't not include them, these are Rimmels take on a chubby stick and I love them they come in so many different colours and look so good on your lips. I currently have them in four colours Keep Mauving, Driving Me Nude, Make Me Blush and On Fire, there are 8 more in the range and I defiantly want the rest of them! I love how they are much more wearable for everyday and don't dry out your lips like other lipsticks can especially the red, on fire. Drive me nude is my favourite and were it almost everyday at the moment! But like the collection concealer the writing always rubs off so I always have to look up the names before I write about them .

(Left to Right- Keep Mauving, Make Me Blush, On Fire and Driving Me Nude)

Collection Extreme 24hr Felt Tip Liner (£2.99)
I have recently re discovered this eye liner as I always have a felt tip liner in my everyday makeup and I have had the avon one but its almost dried up so went back to this one and I am so glad I did. First of all its so cheap and is so easy to apply, so gives the blackest line almost looking a bit like a gel eyeliner. The tip is also very fine and has a bit of a bend to it so you can create a perfect flick with it, yes I can almost do a flick with this which is pretty un believable for me. It also doesn't dry up as I bought this ages ago and it's still going strong.

Sleek Face Form Palate (£9.99)
I know I've had this for quiet a while now and have been using it for ages but this month I have really got back into doing a stronger countor and also using this blush, which I hadn't normally been doing. If you don't know about this its a trio including a highlight, blusher and bronzer and is amazing, its also perfect for traveling as its so slim and also comes with a mirror, result! I have been using my real techniques blush brush to apply this and it works so well for all three as its slightly tappered at the top perfect for getting into your cheek bones and to apply blusher and highlighter.

Topshop Nail Polish in AWOL (£5.00)
I bought this a while ago and I am obsessed with this colour and I can't wait to wear it through out the summer, I love how bright blue it is and I have never seen a nail polish like this before, which is why I wanted to buy it. I also love the packaging of the topshop nail polishes and they are really good quality and don't tend to chip too quickly on me.

Real Techniques Powder Brush (£8.55) RRP £10.99
I purchased this at the beginning of the month from Amazon, as all real techniques brushes are cheaper from there, and I have been loving using it to apply my powder as it is just so big so gets the job done so much quicker than my old brush. Its also very fluffy so doesn't apply too much product at once which can often happen with powders. I am in love with real techniques blushes and may be on my way to getting the whole collection, I'm probably like half way there, I was thinking about doing a post on them let me know what you think? Sorry it looks a bit weird I just washed them and realised I then needed to take a picture of this one!

These have been my favourites for May let me know what your are and look out for my random favourites on Monday. Thanks for reading.
