How can it be the end of May already? 2016 is passing too quickly. Saying that though, there is nothing I enjoy more than reading what everyone’s favourites are for the month.
I don’t have many favourites this month as I haven’t mixed up my routine too much but I do have a few beauty and hair products I have been loving, with some random products thrown in too.
Makeup Revolution Affirmation Eyeshadow Palette £8. This little gem is such a bargain. It has a mix of shimmers and mattes in neutral colours which is perfect for that every day look, especially with their staying power. The colours are also build-able which means you can create a more striking look if that is what you are after. I will definitely be going back to Superdrug to pick up some more Make Up Revolution palettes.
MAC Lipstick – Stone £15.50. If you are after a matte lipstick in a dark brown/grey colour then this is perfect. I really like this brown lipstick trend at the moment and have so many shades but this is my favourite. I find it very easy to apply, even without lipliner. This is a pretty dark shade, which I love, but for a more natural look I will also apply a layer of concealer under this to lighten the colour so it is wearable any time of the day or when I’m feeling less brave.
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick – Soft-spoken £6.50. If I had to choose one favourite for the whole month, this would be it. It is a dark pinky-nude shade and it is gorgeous. If you are after a great ‘your lips but better’ shade then snap this up. It is incredibly creamy, easy to apply and lasts a long time. Mine lasted through a barbecue and a lot of alcohol.
Invisibobble Hair Bands £3.75 for three. These have been my saviour recently. I have to have my hair tied up for 9 hours a day at work so whenever I had plans, I would always have silly kinks that were near impossible to get rid of with my straighteners. This was also very time consuming. But with these, all I have to do is pull them out, brush my hair and I’m good to go. No annoying kinks, what’s better than that?
Tangle Teezer £10.99. Ever since I started highlighting my hair, it has been unmanageable to the point where I can’t get a brush through my hair so when I discovered the Tangle Teezer brush I was surprised at how much difference it made. Ever though I’ve used my Tangle Teezer for over a year now, I haven’t mentioned it yet and it definitely deserves some recognition. I don’t know what I would do without it.
Batiste Dry Shampoo – Tropical £4.99. I used to wash my hair every day and I felt it was necessary as my hair gets greasy very quickly. I had tried dry shampoo in the past but never really felt like it was working for my hair. In the past, I had also tried Batiste in the original scent, however I always thought it left my hair looking white and the smell was too much for me. I decided to give Batiste another go but opted for the Tropical flavour this time. I love it! I’ve gone through so many cans now. The smell is subtle so you aren’t left feeling choked up and my hair doesn’t become coated in a white film. Using this, I’ve now gone from washing my hair every day to about every three days which I thought was impossible for me.
Walkers Thai Sweet Chilli Sensations. I am and will always be a chocolate lover but these are my downfall. I can eat a whole share bag to myself in one sitting. I’m addicted. They are quite spicy, so if you don’t like spicy food I’d give these a miss. If you don’t like sweet chilli, don’t be put off. I dislike sweet chilli sauce but my goodness, sweet chilli crisps are amazing. I might just nip to the shops and buy a packet now…
Pure Gym Membership £19.99 a month. This has been one of my better spends this year. I’ve always loved keeping myself fit and now I can do so with a whole range of equipment I had no access to before. Pure Gyms are open 24/7 which is perfect for my job and the membership is much cheaper than competitors.
Well there we go. Here’s to June!
