May Beauty Favourites.


I realise that we are currently over halfway through June (wut?!) which pretty much makes my May favourites irrelevant, but better late than never, right guys? Right?!



One: The Body Shop papaya range
I JUST DISCOVERED THESE HEAVENLY BABIES ON THURSDAY NIGHT AND I'M IN LOVE! Tropical scents are my jam, and these smell sosososososo good. We all know how I feel about The Body Shop's products (especially shower gels) so I won't bother repeating myself for the ten-zillionth time, just know that they're limited edition so go ahead and treat yo'self to some papaya goodness  like, yesterday. DO IT!

Two: Trilogy rosehip oil
I'm about 99.99% sure that this has appeared in my favourites  at least once before but it has honestly been a saviour over the past month or so. My skin gets super dry during the Winter months so adding 2-3 drops in to a thick facial moisturiser at night has really helped to nourish my tight, dry face without making me feel oily or clogged when I wake the next morning (which had always been a fear of mine when using oils). Plus there's all that anti-aging jazz that comes with rosehip.. you can't really lose here, guizeee.

Three: Maybelline big eyes eye shadow (in 'Luminous Brown')
I've been using this little compact for a while now. As someone who rarely bothers with eye shadow, such a shimmery, luminous formulation can be daunting but this manages to blend out and look pretty enough under even my uncoordinated hand. I tend to reach for dark, smoky colours (because black is life), so I've mostly used this compact for the centre colour which I've been using as inner corner highlight. The shadows themselves are super buttery - a dream to use, and highly pigmented. I love the subtle shimmer - I'm able to seem 'luminous' without having chunks of glitter splotched all over and around my eyes.

Four: Nude by Nature pressed mineral cover (in 'Light Medium')
I can't put my finger on exactly why, but I've been favouring this formulation over my usual Rimmel Stay Matte of late. It gives a softer, lighter coverage (I usually go for something a little more full in the coverage department) than Stay Matte does, but this is great for everyday use as it feels light on the skin and goes on smoothly. It evens out my skin tone so nicely and can easily be built up for fuller coverage without making you look cakey. I may be somewhat biased as this is an Aussie brand buuuuttt, you can't argue with the results.

Five: DKNY Be Delicious perfume
I've re-discovered my love of this apple-scented baby upon stumbling upon a bottle in my perpetually overflowing perfume stash. There's not too much to say about perfumes in general, but this has such a flirty, fresh and fruity Springtime scent that lasts for the longest time. I can't believe I forgot I had a bottle.


What are your current beauty favourites?
