May Beauty Favourites

Hi all! I've not done a monthly favourites list since January, so after such a long period away, it felt only right that I put together a May one. Here's some of the beauty products I've been loving recently...

Wilko's Premium Powder Brush (£4)
I hear so much talk of Wilko's on the blogesphere but unfortunately there isn't one near me. Recently though, I happened to be near one and I couldn't help but pick up a few treats, one of which was this powder brush. The brush I normally use to powder my face is really small and dense whereas this is much fluffier. It's so soft and I love how much easier it is to sweep all over my face. I'm thinking of buying another one to use for light bronzing in Summer. For £4, it's such amazing quality.

Barry M Flawless Brightening Primer (£5.99)
Primer isn't a make-up product I often feel passionately about, I don't use it every day and even when I do, what's there really to get excited about? This one however, is everything I look for in a primer. The purple works to brighten dull or tired looking skin (ie. mine, every day of my life!) and it applies like an absolute dream, smooth, non-greasy and a little goes a long way. Although I don't use primer every day but this is really heavy duty, great for long days or nights out.

Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay Gel Nail Colour in 'Surreal' (£5.99)

I'm not normally a huge fan of pastel nail polishes, I find them hard to co-ordinate and I just can't be bothered with having to apply 4 coats to build up the colour. This shade from Maybelline though isn't a true pastel, but more of a washed out lavender shade which I find easier to wear. The formula is really thin but opaque, quick drying and long lasting. It's the perfect Spring nail colour for me!

Rimmel London Kate Moss Sculpting Palette in '003 Golden Bronze' (£6.99)

This cute little rose gold palette from the folks at Rimmel London contains a highlight, a contour powder and a blusher. The highlight is a leaves much to be desired (way too dark for a highlighter in my opinion!) but the contour is a great one for pale skin and the slightly shimmery warm coral blush is perfect for this time of year. I've been wearing them both with and without fake tan and I love it both ways.

New Look Pure Colour Baked Highlighter Powder in '70 Light Pink' (£6.99)

Now on to a highlight I do care for. Very much so in fact. From one of the high street's most underrated beauty brands, Pure Colour by New Look. If you like that super smooth highlighted look, this one's for you, it's shimmery but not glittery and it's so finely milled that it applies beautifully, I'd think it was much higher end!

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in '1993' (£15.50)

Finally, a repurchase cause I lost my first one, Urban Decay's Matte Revlotuion Lipstick in the shade '1993'. Like half the make-up obsessives of the world, I'm all about sepia inspired make-up at the moment and this is my perfect brown lipstick. It's not completely matte, but I think I prefer that tiny little bit of creaminess, and it fades out really evenly. The only downside is that it can be a liiiittle melty if you leave if in your pocket!
