Mid-month Favourites May 2015.

beauty favourites may 2015

Wow it's the middle of May and that only means one thing; it's time for this months mid-month favourites!

The first product to make my favourites is the Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover. This product is supposed to instantly remove all signs of eye makeup and I can hands down say it does just that. The bi-phase formula feels like a thick liquid lotion and works with ease, and leaves no residue behind. I'm in love with this product.

The next product I mentioned in a recent post and is one that I haven't stopped using/wearing since purchasing. It's the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche lipstick in Eva's Nude. It is literally the perfect nude colour and it doesn't blend in with my skintone looking like I'm wearing concealer either. The neutral shade has a slight pink tinge to it; and seems to last a good 4-5 hours without fading. 

Since I heard about the release of the Clinique Chubby Sculpting Contour Stick it was forever on my list to purchase until I gave in a couple of months back, and I'm so glad I did. The stick design makes it so so easy to draw where I want to contour, and even though the colour looks scary it blends in with ease... and then ta da, cheek bones have arrived!

Another favourite of mine this last month also comes from Clinique, one of their eyeshadow quads I got as part of Clinique bonus time about a year ago. I have been loving using the top left shade as an every day all over colour, and the other shades to turn the look into an evening look. The formula is what I love about these - Clinique always seem to make their eyeshadows so easy to blend, and provide them with brilliant colour pay-off.

The fifth item to make my mid-month favourites had to be the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, and oh my god I am in love with this foundation it is amazing (so amazing, I've now used it all up :(). The formula is so light but still manages to cover everything leaving a gorgeous glowy finish. It really is as good as everyone always seems to say!

The Collection Eyebrow Definer is a product I've only just realised how good it is. I love the twist-up design and the fine tip. I can easily mimick my eyebrows in seconds with this pencil. The product also seems to never leave my eyebrows, easily lasting the entire day. The only thing I wish is that they had a slightly lighter blonde shade, but for the price I'm not complaining, it's amazing. I definitely recommend you pick it up.

The last product to make my mid-month favourites had to be The Body Shop Argan Oil Body Lotion. I picked this up back when I used to work there but it had just been sitting in my mass pile of moisturisers since. I love how light this lotion is as this means it sinks into my skin easily, perfect for busy days. It leaves my skin incredibly soft too, how can I not love this product?

And that's the end of my mid-month favourites this month, what have you been loving lately? Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned?

  3. Ooof, that clinque stick looks so dark but the concept has us interested! Is it really blendable? I'm really pale and wouldn't want to snap it up to end up looking like i've painted lines on my face haha Jay

  4. It really is, I can't seem to stop using it at the minute. I'm pretty sure they did when I went away last year so I hope you managed to pick some bits up! Ooh I'm intrigued now, can't wait to see more about it on your blog :). -Kristy

  5. Yeah that's the first thing I thought when I saw the product but yes it really is blendable! I'm super-pale too and can easily use this only creating a subtle contour. It is also buildable too, definitely worth checking out. -Kristy
