May Favourites 2016

May Favourites 2016

One month is over and we are not far away from Summer. It is cliché to say, but time flies so fast, isn’t it? May was such a busy month for me, there were so many thing going on like a wedding, travelling a lot and then trying to get back to my blogging routine again. Now, May is over it is time to share some of my May favourites?

My May Favourites 2016

La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray

I’ve been using this spray every day in May, it is really good at oil control. After spraying it to my face, a few minutes later my skin looks mattified. If you are dealing with oily/combination skin, then you can guess how happy I was to have a shine free face. I don’t know why I didn’t get it earlier.

Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

This was a Paula from Thirteen Thoughts inspired purchase and I am happy that I finally got it after postponing for a long time. You only need a tiny amount of it, it is so rich and thick that it takes a while to absorb, but once it does your eye area will be well moisturised and so soft. If I am in hurry, I avoid using it except that it is on top of my daily skincare.

Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray

I used it a while ago when it was first released and I wonder why I stopped using it. If you have fine flat hair, then you know how hard it is to achieve volume without making your hair heavy after using so many products. This actually gives some volume, all you need to do it apply it on the roots then blow dry it. I use it after every hair wash, at least then my hair doesn’t look that flat.

MAC Lipstick (Amplified Cream) in Chatterbox

I tend to stick to neutral eye makeup so one of the ways of adding colours to my makeup is the lipstick and I like wearing bright lipsticks in Spring&Summer. Chatterbox is kind of Barbie pink and I like wearing it with minimal makeup then the focus is on the lips. This is how I’ve been wearing it in May most of the time.

Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude

I don’t have many light bases and when I want something weightless than Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude is what I use most of the time. It is light and it works well on my oily skin without making it look greasy. Since I need light base products, Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint will have to be my next purchase!

Sally Hansen Smooth & Perfect in 07 Sea

There are many Nail Trends to try out this year, minty shade is definitely one of them. I have this nail polish for a few years now and the formula is still as good as new. It doesn’t only give a nice colour but also makes the nails stronger so it is a win win situation.

Favourite Moment

My favourite moment was my wedding on 7th of May 2016. You can have a look at some of my wedding decorations… Once in a while I still look at the photos and think how amazing that day was. There are so many photos and I can’t decide which one to get printed, it wouldn’t be right to get 1000 photos printed, right?

These are my May favourites, have you tried any of these products? How was your May? Have you done anything special? What do you have in your May favourites?

    • It is so pretty, isn’t it? I’ve been wearing it a lot lately 🙂 x

  • Mac only recently opened up in my town, so I am looking for great lipsticks to try from them. I’ll definitely keep Chatterbox in mind, it sounds lovely 🙂 My May wasn’t super eventful but it was good. I finished school (but still have few exams to complete), went on a road trip with my friends, got time to relax and to study. I think I had a great time over this month 🙂

    -Leta | The Nerdy Me

    • There are so many lovely colours for summer, definitely check them out 🙂 Finishing the school must be the best part of May so now you can enjoy Summer and make plans 🙂 x

    That light green nail polish is so pretty –Hanna Lei

  • I’ve heard such great things about the La Roche-Posay Spray though I have yet to find it here. I don’t really have any favourites for May, but the month was wonderful nonetheless. Personal reason but still wonderful reasons <3

  • Congratulations! I’m so interested in wedding stuff even though I’m not getting married haha 🙂 Love serozinc and really want to try the avocado eye cream, I have used the midnight eye by kiehls for years xx

    a second swatch.

    • Thank you 🙂 I am using midnight recovery concentrate and I really like it, I want to try more from that range xx

  • lovely favs! I’ve heard a lot about Kheil’s avocado eye cream, I gotta try it!

    XoXo,

  • That Maybelline foundation has been one of the stuff that I always pick up and then put back down. I shouldn’t purchase any new base product anytime soon, I have so many to go through but one last one wouldn’t hurt, eh?

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • It is not really suitable for dry skins, formula is more like water so it only gives light coverage. When I have dry bits, I avoid using it.

  • Corinne C

    That foundation sounds amazing. I’ll have to check it out when my current one runs out!

  • I love how you’ve been wearing minimal makeup with the bold lip shade – it looks SUCH a gorgeous, feminine shade! Hope your week is going well so far 🙂

    Gabrielle | A Glass Of Ice | Twitter | Instagram x

    • Minimal makeup is perfect for everyday makeup 🙂 Have an amazing weekend x

  • Love the Serozinc and Kiehls eye cream! I’ll definitely need to repurchase the eye cream at some point!

    Danielle’s Beauty Blog

  • I’d never heard about the Laroche-Posay spray! That’s quite amazing, I’ll be trying it out because I very much need an oily skin controler haha. Do you apply it before or after you makeup? Is it replacing powder?
    You must have had a wonderful month of May, but good luck to choose the photos to print now, it will be hard not to pick them all! 😉

    • I apply it before the moisturiser and let it soak in for a few minutes then use the serum/cream whatever you’re using. It is really good at oil control, you should give it a try 🙂 x

  • @queenhorsfall

    love dove products

  • I absolutely adore the lipstick and nail polish colors, both are so refreshing and perfect for this time of year! The Kiehl’s eye cream sounds amazing, I’ll have to check it out, since I’m in the market for a new cream. Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you’re having a great start to your new month!

    I’ve seen that Maybelline foundation in the shops but always been put off as I’m scared it would be like their mousse in the fact that it’s so orange! You should so get a collage printed of the majority or your favourite ones of your wedding day!
    Charlotte // http://www.charlottespicks.com

    • It is watery foundation, if you have dry skin you should avoid using it.

  • Love your collection!

  • I like the sound of the Kiehl’s avocado eye cream. Looking forward to seeing your wedding pics!

    • Avocado cream is really good, one of my favourite now!

  • LRP Serozinc is a staple in my skincare routine, and it has been for years. Such a great product for combination/oily skin.

    • You’re the main reason why I got it, I didn’t know about it before your blog and it is doing a great job 🙂

      • Ha, look at me being all influential. I am glad you like it though, I would have hated you being all disappointed after listening to my suggestions.

  • Siffat Haider

    I have the Kiehl’s avocado eye cream as well – I swear by it! So glad someone else knows how amazing it is!

    • La Roche spray is amazing, I wish I had bought it earlier!

  • Congratulations on getting married! I think you should definitely get 1000 photos printed and make a photo album with them 🙂 And the mint nail polish looks gorgeous, I’ll have to pick it up x

    alicered.co.uk

    • I will probably be doing that, I just can’t decide on which photos to print so I might as well print them all, right? 🙂 x

  • Oh I say print all the photos you want! You can always fill multiple albums, haha! Your wedding photos you shared on the decorations post are beautiful too I can see why you’d want to print so many 🙂

    Away From The Blue Blog

    • I will probably have a few wedding related albums as I can’t decide which one to print 🙂

  • I have read a lot of reviews on La Roche Posay ,i didn’t even know they had one that is good for oil control , i have an oily facial skin so i might look into it. Thanks for reviewing.

    • If you have oily skin, definitely give it a try! It is good at oil control.

  • I have always wanted to try the Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment because it seems so gentle and moisturizing but I haven’t actually sampled it yet. I’ll definitely scoop some up next time I’m at Sephora after your review!

    • Definitely give it a try, It is so gentle and moisturising, my eye area feels so refreshed and soft.

  • I have been wondering about the Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude – I’m glad to hear it works well! You’ll have to let us know how the Nars product works too 🙂

    xx http://www.qustomquinns.com/blog

  • Samileen

    I wish Dream Flawless foundation worked for me, I loved the texture,. But it just wasn’t for be. It clinged onto my dry spot and was bit powdery on me.
    But I’m loving that Mac lip shade. And I have been wanting to get the Kiehl’s avocado eye cream for the longest time, specially after reading Paula’s post but I’m yet to get through my mid night recovery eye cream.
