Monthly Favourites | May ❤

Hi lovlies! I hope you are all well? So it's June, I can't believe it! Time just seems to fly by these days, it's scary! Just going to jump straight into it and tell you what I have been loving in the month of May...

I have been really getting into trying primers recently as last year I never really bothered with them. I picked up the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant pore eraser not too long ago and I really like it! I love the soft, matte and velvet-like finish that it leaves on my skin. It creates a great base for my foundation to apply onto and blurs out any imperfections that I have. This is most definitely a staple in my makeup routine now!

I'm a huge fan of contouring and highlighting and cream products are my favourite to use. I have been using the Mac Prep + Prime Highlighter - Lightboost for about 2 years now and love it. Every time I use it I fall more and more in love. This yellow based highlighter blends out perfectly and is great for brightening my under eye and to highlight other areas of my face.

My MAC fluidline recently dried up and I was so upset, I went on the look out for a cheap alternative until I could re-purchase it. I found the Seventeen - Smoulder Gel Eyeliner in boots for £3.99 so thought I would give it a try. I don't tend to buy cheaper gel liners as I find they just don't last at all but I am so happy I picked this one up. It's surprisingly really nice, it glides on smoothly and doesn't smudge. I like to either do a bold wing liner or smudge it out when doing a smoky eye and it works well for either.

I have quite a big selection of perfumes, as I just love investing in a nice luxury one now and again. I tend to pick one up at duty free every time I go on holiday just as a little treat to myself! The one that I seem to re-purchase over and over is Viktor & Rolf - Flowerbomb if any of you have smelt this you will understand me when I say this is absolutely GORGEOUS! My boyfriend got me this perfume for the first time about 3 years ago and since then it has been my favourite. I am so bad at describing smells so I am not even going to try to but if you are ever shopping just go have a smell of it and you'll understand why this is my fave!

That's all my favourites for this month. I love to read what other people have been loving so make sure you comment below and let me know what your favourites are!

Thank you so much for reading


  1. Ooo am tempted to pick up the 17 eyeliner especially at £3.99 it's such a bargain!

  2. I've read so many great reviews about Maybelline Baby Skin Instant pore eraser. I bought it few months ago and unfortunately it didn't work for me and I think that's because I have oily and acne-prone skin, so it started to break out. It works amazing though for those with dry skin. I was bumped, but if I didn't try it, I would of never known. I'm always on the hunt for a new eyeliner and based on your review Seventeen - Smoulder Gel Eyeliner is worth a try. And, you can't beat the price. Great post!

  3. Flowerbomb is amazing! I love the smell of the entire line. Lovely photo too :)
