MAY BEAUTY FAVOURITES



I honestly can't believe that May has come and gone. I just don't know how the year has gone by so fast. The good news is June is an exciting month, because it's my birthday month - which means pressies and who doesn't love presents? Everyone loves presents! Anyways, let's continue on  celebrating May first. Luckily, in Melbourne we've had some lovely weather which felt more like Spring than Autumn/Winter, so what's why my favourites are brighter than what I would normally wear within the winter months. 

Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Cologne - This is my first ever Jo Malone perfume and currently it's my only one. I went to a beautiful Jo Malone counter with my best friend and upon smelling this scent we both had to immediately buy it! It's the perfect spring/summer scent, it's light, but not sickly sweet. I've never been a fan of fruity smelling perfumes, always leaning towards the musks and darker notes, however there is a sophistication and elegance about this perfume that is completely undeniable. If you have a chance to smell this, trust me - you'll need it in your life! 

Mac Lady Danger - This lipstick is just perfect. It's a fantastic red with beautiful orange undertones. The moment you swipe this on your lips your face instantly lights up. That's what I love about Lady Danger, on lazy days I put this on with a little bit of mascara and tinted moisturiser and I'm done! 

Mac Pink Swoon - Pink Swoon is a much loved blush by avid Mac fans. It's a perfect matte pink blush that gives you that darling snow kissed cheek. I dust it on lightly for a fresh flush. 

The Body Shop Eyeshadow # 8 -  This eyeshadow is in the old Body Shop packaging, if you're looking for a similar colour  Colour Crush Bronze Bliss  in the new range looks similar.  I love the consistency of Body Shop eyeshadows, they're very silky and blendable. For  Aussie's they're affordable! This colour is just a dream, once again another no fuss product just one swipe on the lids and you're done. 

Maybelline The Lip Elixir Captivating Carnation -  I did a whole blog post dedicated to these wonders, so I won't bore about why I love these again, but Captivating Carnation is the colour I've been most drawn to throughout the month. 

L'Oreal Paris False Lash Butterfly Wings Mascara - Before I found this product I was using Eyeko's Curly Mascara which is amazing. This product does the same thing, it curls your lashes and gives you that flirty lash look which I love! It separates each lash perfectly,  a dream come true for a mascara lover like myself.  There is only one downside to this product and it's the smell. It's not very enticing, but the product is so good that I'm able to forgive the smell. 

I've also done a few swatchy swatches for you guys! Thank you again for reading, I appreciate it.
