Monthly Favourites: May

Throughout May I tried to shop my stash that little bit more, firstly because I'm off on holiday and needed to save for spending money and secondly, I literally have no more space for makeup. Like actually none. 

A product that was new to my collection however was the Buxom White Russian on the Rocks Palette. I did a full review on my blog here so I won't go on too much about it, but I've finally been reunited with the perfect all-over shimmery brown for my nights out. My holy grail was always the shade 'Push Up' in the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette but unfortunately I've completely used it up and needed a new one. The shade 'Precious Metals' in this palette has to be my favourite, it's just so creamy and blendable and I'm so impressed with the pigment.

Secondly my Benefit Cheekathon Palette has been used again and again throughout this month. Not only is this palette SUCH good value for money but you pretty much get everything you could ever want from Benefit. Usually the shade Rockateur is what I reach for in this palette when it comes to the blushers, but I've finally managed to wear the brighter shades appropriate for Spring and Summer including Dandelion and Coralista. I've also managed to finally wear Dallas a shade I haven't yet touched, to add a natural glow over my cheeks and forehead as I'm normally too pale for it in the winter.

The KIKO Bright Duo Baked Eyeshadow '03' is a mono-duo eyeshadow that I've been obsessed with to pack on more shimmer. The shade I have is Pearly Sand with a bright glittery and shimmery dusky pink on the top and a satin taupe matte shade on the bottom. I am a massive fan of KIKO and think their eyeshadows are a definite highlight in their collection. Although I don't use the satin taupe shade massively (mainly because I'm not quite sure how to wear it - tips please!) I've been obsessed with the shimmery shade. Although it is mostly pure glitter, it's dense enough for there to be little fall out. I love wearing this if I'm going for a full blown 'rose gold' shade and just need that extra shimmer to brighten it up. 

My NYX Wonder Pencil 'Light' has been a life saver whilst I've been too lazy to get my eyebrows done this month. This is a very multipurpose kind of product - you can use it either to highlight on the bridge of your nose, lining your waterline for brightening or to clear up your brows. As my brows have been growing a bit out of control I can use this product to just clear up around the edges which not only hides any stray hairs (as it's quite high coverage) but it also acts as a brightening for under the brow. 

Let me know in the comments below what you've been loving this month!
