May Favourites

I am absolutely rubbish at keeping up with monthly favourites posts, I'm sure I've missed loads of months but this time here's a few beauty bits and pieces I've been loving using in May. 
Firstly - Charles Worthington haircare has wormed its way into my collection and I couldnt be more happy about it.  I grabbed the texturising spray and heat protect spray and they pretty much do exactly what is says on the tin really, really well.  I'm so impressed by these, and the little added bonus - they smell incredible.  I'll definitely be having a look at what else the brand has to offer.

As always, I'm battling mid-day shine on my oily skin, this month I've used MAC Prep+Prime (full review here) and Urban Decay  De-Slick Make-up Setting Spray and I've been really enjoying using them.  I wouldn't recommend either for drier skin, but they both really do make a difference to oil production.  For my base I've also been using the RT Stippling brush loads lately to buff in my foundation to give a bit of a lighter finish, in the past I only really paired it with cream blushers, but it's pretty impressive with foundation too!

I've fallen back in love with my old favourite - Benefit Hoola.  There is so much pan visible in my little box, shows how much I love this little matte beauty; it's perfect for contouring and warming up the skin.  On my cheeks I can't get enough of MAC Mineralise Skin Finish in Stereo Rose (full review here), it's such a beautiful shimmery coral which is ideal when the sun's out.

Lastly on my lips I've only really used two products for the last month.  On a daily basis I've been loving the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse in Dating Coral for a sheer hint of coral without drying my lips out at all, this is so much more moisturising than I expected, making it so comfortable to wear.  If I'm fancying a brighter bold lip, Revlon Matte Balm in Audacious has been the one for me.  I adore this super bright orangey red which wears well and has received a few compliments, woohoo!
