May Favourites

May favourites time! Woooo!

Koji Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner
I've never really been a big fan of liquid liner, I've always felt that it never looked the way I wanted to, but this month I thought I'd give it a few extra chances and I fell in love. I think liquid liner gives a really bold and 'let's get down to business' look but also is very classic and timeless. I think it just really pulls together a look. 

Sephora 110 Foundation Brush (left)
I've always loved this foundation brush, it's not scratchy unlike the Sigma paddle shape foundation brush, but this month I've been really loving using this to apply my BB Cream. When I use this my face doesn't get dry in certain places by the end of the day and gives more coverage. 

Sigma F84 Angled Top Kabuki Brush (right)
I've always loved this foundation brush too, but this month I've really been loving using this to apply my Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. It gives that same effects as I mentioned above. 

Lucas' Papaw Ointment
I've always used this to remove little eye makeup mistakes but I've realised that it's also really helpful for my little dry patches that pop up after I put on makeup. You can also use this as a highlighter to add a subtle natural glow 

Sigma Blending E25 Brush
I've noticed in pixi2woo's tutorials, that she often not only uses this brush for eye makeup, but also for blending concealer. I love it cuz the concealer blends so flawlessly, I use it with the Maybelline Fit Me concealer around the nose where I have redness. 

Artiste Professional Manicare Pointed Eyeliner Brush
After also watching Lisa Eldridge's tutorials, she often uses a pointed eyeliner brush to apply concealer precisely on imperfections, so I've been really loving doing that.

Clarisonic Delicate Brush Head
It was time for me to change my brush head and they ran out of the sensitive brush head so I ended up buying this one. Turns out this brush head is actually more suited for acne prone skin, so it's more suitable for me. But about a week after I bought this I saw an ad in Teen Vogue for the new Clarisonic Brush Head that is for just acne prone skin, so I think I'll try that out when I have to change brush heads again or something. 

Lush Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter
I ran out of my body scrub so I wanted to try a body butter from Lush because I thought the idea was really interesting. I absolutely love this body butter and I think I'm going to keep purchasing it when I'm finished. I love the nutty smell and my favourite part is that it doesn't leave an oily residue. It just really annoys me after I've used a scrub and I get out of the shower and my skin feels kinda slippery and that just makes me feel like I'm not fully clean, it's kinda weird. 

Kit Cosmetics Body Wash in Fresh Pear, Crisp Apple & Vanilla
I bought this a while ago and I only got round to using this this month. It's just like a basic shower gel but I really love the smell. It's a very fresh smell and makes me feel clean. The only downside is that the smell isn't very predominant and fades after a while, I wish it would last a little more post shower.

Maybelline Lasting Drama Eye Studio Gel Liner in Eggplant Aubergine
I've been really loving using this liner because it's fun but is also more natural than black liner as it's a softer look. But I don't think it's as creamy as other gel liners although I still use it because I just love the colour so much! 

Gap Legging Jeans
I've been absolutely obsessed with these legging jeans. They are just so incredibly comfortable but at the same time they are really flattering on me. 

Country Road Sweater
This sweater/jumper has been my go to sweater this month, I've just been wearing it so much! I love the mixing of the textures. The front is wool but the arms and back are cotton, so it's not really itchy. It's also sooooo warm!

Gap Flats
These are probably the most comfortable flats I own, I love em! I've just been loving Gap and I went to Gap for the first time this month. 

My Sweater Drawer!
I've been pulling this drawer out soooo much this month, especially as the weather gets colder. Sweaters/Jumpers are just so amazing because they're really warm and comfortable but can pull an outfit together really easily. 

My iPad!
Absolutely obsessed with this! I use to be the biggest iPad skeptic because I thought "what does the iPad do that a computer/iPhone doesn't do?" The reason I really love the iPad is because it's looks so much better to surf the web on a bigger screen than an iPhone but it's much more portable than a laptop! I love taking this to lectures because it's soooooo light!

A blue throw!
Sorry I don't remember where I got this throw, I have so many throws but this is just the one that I've had over my quilt on my bed because it's just been getting sooooo cold!

I'm also going to do May Wants this month because they've been quite a few things that I've really been wanting so I'll put that post up really soon!


  1. lovely favourites, i really want to get the clairisonic but its a bit too expensive for me right now aha xx

  2. I just bought an iPad as well, it's an amazing product for browsing the net though I find typing on it a little slow and bothersome. The Maybelline eyeliner is a gorgeous colour though I agree (just from my experience with the black one I have) it could be creamier. I have been interested in the Mia but it's a bit out of my price range :p

  3. The delicate brush heads the best I have used both delicate and sensitive.
