May Favourites

I feel that naming this post May favourites is almost a little deceitful as a lot of these loves may be a little premature since I only started using them a few weeks ago but I think with some products that it is all you need.
Ciate Nail Polish £9
A little on the Pricey side at £9 a bottle but you are truly getting a better product. A lot of people commented on my post yesterday that their favourite nail polishes are Barry M and they are far more affordable however the quality of these nail polishes do not compare. They do not chip, apply very well and the packaging is beautiful! Colours above- Ditch The Heels, Cupcake Queen and Mojitos
Available from Powder Rooms.
 Mac Girl About Town Lipstick & Eyeko Lipgloss in Soho
My Current favourite lip combination is Mac Girl About Town (also here) with Eyeko Lipgloss in Soho (also here) over the top. Although Girl About Town does look fabulous on its own I think that adding the lipgloss really adds an extra wow factor, it intensifies the colour and makes lips appear larger. I have been wearing this for the last few days and although I do have to top up the lipgloss the lipstick lasts all day.

If you are ordering from Eyeko use Ambassador Code E2749 in order to get free gift.
No7 Quick Dry Tinted Lotion £12
If you have a spare £5 off No7 Voucher I would really recommend this product. Although I think at first the colour is slightly yellow after a few layer the colour looks dark but yet natural. The best think about the product is how easy it is to apply I use a glove but even without a glove it would be very easy. It is moisturising and doesn't stick to dry patches even fades nicely! Available from Boots.
Xen Tan Perfect Bronze Sheer Powder Bronzer £21.99
Since I have been using fake tan (Fake Tan routine here) I have also been using bronzer on my face, currently my favourite is by Xen-Tan. It is easy to apply, blends beautifully and is quite olive toned just like the Fake tan bronzer making this a very effortless product. Pricey but a little does go a long way. Available online and in Selfridges.

Gosh Touch Up Concealer £5.99
This concealer is affordable, has great coverage and doesn't look cakey at all- does a good job at making me look awake. Only down side is colour range is poor I am number 2 of 3 and all three seem quite similar. Available from Superdrugs.

  9. Loving this lipstick, the Eyeko lipgloss matches perfectly too - what a great discovery!!!

    The bright colour suits you! I think Chanel do a lipstick which is pretty much the exact same colour (I can't remember the name of it for the life of me!!!) so I'll be purchasing the cheaper (but not by much) MAC one istead thanks to this insightful post!!

  10. I love the Ciate polishes, the bottles swing it for me too though! x

  11. Totally agree that Barry M isnt the best quality, after reading loads of bloggers rave about Barry M products i bought 3 and have used them once they take that many coats.

    Have a look at Borghese nail polish best one ive ever bought (saveonmakeup has them for £3 currently)

  12. Just bought some more Barry M nail polish today! Have to say though I love the look of these, would definitley make a great present too, going to have to look into them! May have to check out that tan too as just got another £5 voucher off No7 at Boots.
