May favourites?

Erm.. where did May go?

This year is flying by!! The older I get the faster the year seems to run out!

Anyway! There have been some really amazing products that have impressed me and kept me reaching for them this month.. Here they are!

1. Revlon Lash Potion by Grow Luscious Volume and Length Mascara

The longest name ever by a mascara aside, this colourful tube really surprised me! I cant remember the last time I bought a Revlon mascara! This one came as a GWP when you spent a centain amount of money on Revlon in David Jones some time ago and I have to say that I was impressed by both the formula and the wand on this product. 

Of course it is almost impossible to show you but the wand on this has a bristle configuration that is almost triangular which really grips on the lashes.

2. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Primer

FInally a great dupe for my favourite primer. This is as good as many more expensive products from the smell to the consistency. I was so excited to find this and have been using it often since I purchased. You can find my review here!

3. Clinique Brush on Cream liner

THis is my go to liner, the ultra smooth consistency makes even the finest line easy to achieve. Its been in my collection for a while (not the same one.. I have been repurchasing!) And I find that I reach for it the most out of all eye products.

4. OPI nail lacquer In Chillan like a Villain

I was sent this to review and wasn’t all that impressed with the shade in the bottle, it looks like it would be a super sheer shade and I already had my go to sheer shade that I have been wearing for years (bubble bath if you wanted to know) But I was wrong! While it is sheer it is also buildable to create a gorgeous, soft, girly and wearable peachy look that I just cant get enough of! Paired with a glitter this polish is just gorgeous!!!

5. NARS Powder Blush in Orgasm

This has been in my collection for years (thi is infact my second one) and for some reason (perhaps as the season is changing) I have found myself reaching for this once more. The peachy pink suits almost every complexion and is just so pretty.

6. Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick in Make a Wish

I bought this earlier in the month and just cant stop wearing it. It is almost an exact dupe for MAC Toying Around (I only discovered this after I bought both) and just gives your look such a gorgeous bold pop of colour. It is best described as an orangey red but sometimes photographs with a fair bit of pink in it as well.

7.  Thebalm Cindy-Lou Manizer.

I purchased this earlier this month and love the subtle soft wash of shimmery pink. I love that this product can be used as a highlighter or even a very shimmery light pink blush. I love that this product can be used to transform any matte blush into a shimmery, multidimensional product with just some simple layering.

8. Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu

Talk about packing a punch. This little pencil contains some of the most super blue based pink pigments ive ever seen. It glides on super smooth and imparts a glorious layer of pink goodness onto your pout that lasts almost all day. I often sheer it out with a little balm if I want something a little less bold.

And there we go! Have you tried any of these products? WHat do you think I have left off this post!!
