May Favourites


I told you I'd be back with makeup this month and here it is; I know myself far too well. May was actually really good for new products, so I'm excited to share this with you.

Nina Ricci Ricci EDP - 80ml | £29.99 | Fragrance Direct |

I've had this perfume for over a year and every time I wear it I fall straight back in love. It's a really sexy, seductive fragrance that lingers for days and I can't get enough. Top notes include rhubarb zest and bergamot, with middle notes of moonflower, Indian tuberose and centifolia rose, and the base notes are patchouli and sandalwood. I wouldn't necessarily describe it as a floral fragrance, but it does have a fresh undertone. If you haven't sprayed this, I highly suggest it.

Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Coconut Balm | £6.99 | Boots |

I raved about the CoCo LoCo range by Lee Stafford earlier this month, you can find a full review here. Basically this is a solid balm that melts with the warmth of your hands; it adds shine, moisture and protects the hair. I use it on damp hair to help give a smooth, straight blowdry, and then once my hair is styled I apply to tame any baby hairs. So, so good.


Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Palette | £39 | Debenhams |

Unfortunately, I missed out on the gorgeous Sweet Peach palette that Too Faced released, so got this instead. On a brighter note, the Sweet Peach palette will be making a return in the next few months, so I'm nabbing it then. However, the Bon Bons palette does not disappoint in the slightest, I've used it everyday since it landed on my doorstep and I'm most definitely in love. It contains sixteen heart-shaped shadows, a mixture of mattes and shimmers that compliment each other perfectly and are a dream to work with. The palette smells like chocolate too, what could be better?

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - Caramello | £16 | Stila |

If you're new to my blog, you'll quickly discover that I'm obsessed with Stila's liquid lipsticks. I knew that Caramello had to be mine as I didn't have a neutral beige in my collection, and it didn't let me down. It's one of my all-time favourite nudes, and I featured it in my Send Me Nudes post from last month. It's long-wearing, non-transferable, pigmented, comfortable to wear; everything you want from a good quality liquid lipstick.

Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick - Charmed | $19.90 | Ofra Cosmetics |

This colour is EVERYTHING and I can't stop wearing it. Charmed (amongst two other colours, Aries and Hypno) was created in collaboration with Manny MUA and it had to feature in my faves. Not only do I love Manny, but the formula of the Ofra liquid lippies are superb. For a full review and swatches - check this out.
