May Favourites

So I know this post is kind of late so I'm sorry! But here are all my favourites from May, this month I tried to switch up what I was using a bit and with the weather getting hotter and it feeling more like summer I have changed products. Also I have a new foundation routine now which I am super happy with! So on with the favourites.

1. Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Foundation in 2 Ivory - £5.99
I love this foundation! After trying the concealer & loving it, I decided I would try the foundation, because I needed a new, longer wearing foundation with a bit more coverage. I have loved this this month, especially when applied with a beauty blender, it has amazing medium/full coverage and is very flawless. It also lasts all day even on my oily skin, amazing!!
2. Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1 fair- £4.19
This concealer is amazing, it covers everything & anything! It lasts for a good few hours, and it covers blemishes & under eye circles. Also this doesn't cake under my eyes which I find some concealers can. By the way this concealer does come with writing on, it just rubs off very quickly!
3. 17 Shine Control Pressed Powder in Neutral - £3.99

This powder is wonderful and keeps me matte all day! It provides a bit of extra coverage as well which is nice, but you do  have to be careful with this as if you apply to much it can cake! However when this happens i just go over it with my damp beauty blender.
4. Natural Collection Blush in Pink Cloud - £1.99
This blush is so pretty! It is great on my pale skin, it adds a beautiful flush of colour to the cheeks without being too much. It is super smooth and I really like this blush! I have found myself reaching for this so much this month.
5. Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer in 002 - £6.99
This primer helps to keep my makeup on all day and makes my skin so smooth to help my foundation apply easier. It also helps my foundation to look more flawless and I just love it!
6. Sleek Brow Kit in Light - £7.99
This kit is the best thing I have ever used on my brows! It contains a warm toned wax and a cooler toned powder and the idea is that you apply the wax and then set it with the powder, but I find this makes it too dark so I just apply the powder and then set it with a clear mascara. I really like this and the powder is so creamy and a great colour for me. It lasts all day on my brows and looks so natural. 
7. Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara in 001 Black - £7.99
I love this mascara, I use the volumising side, and it gives me amazing volume without clumping, and it looks like I have fake lashes on. I really really like this mascara and would definately recommend giving it a whirl. It doesn't flake on my lashes and is a nice formula and lasts all day. LOVE.
8.Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Eternal Gold - £4.99
This is such a nice colour and you can just sweep it over your lids and be good to go! It accentuates my blue eyes and really makes them pop. It lasts all day and I really like it
9. Jelly Pong Pong Eye Primer in au naturel - £14
When wearing this eye primer my shadows don't budge! or crease. This primer is in a crayon form and is a nude colour that you apply all over the lid and it makes your shadow last all day. I absolutely love this, however it is EXTREMELY hard to get your hands on and I have not been able to find this since I bought it which is a shame as I was hoping to repurchase this when I have used it all :( Don't you just hate that feeling?
10. Cosmopolitan Beauty Blender - £4.99
This is quite possibly the most amazing thing ever for applying foundation! You wet the sponge and it swells up and then you squeeze all of the excess water out. This applies your foundation & concealer so flawlessly and doesn't allow it to go cakey! Wonderful, I think this works really well with my Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Foundation & concealer. I can't say enough good things about this!
11. Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in 03 - £3.99
For £3.99 this is a bargain! This lipstick is very comparable to the MAC Cremesheens, it has the same finish and texture. This lasts really well and is a lovely pinky nude, but is more on the brown side of nudes so it doesn't make you look dead! I love to wear this with my lipgloss that I will go on to talk about next.
12. Rimmel London Lipgloss in 194 Love Struck - £4.99

This gloss is super duper pigmented! It is a beautiful browney pink nude gloss with shimmer, it looks great when paired with my Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 03 or worn alone. I can't get over how pigmented this is for a drugstore gloss. It is also not sticky but still lasts a decent amont of time. I will definately be trying more of these.
