Faves | May

This month I've tried to switch things up a little bit!
REN Moisturiser: I LOVE this stuff.   Literally love it.  My skin eats it.  I am most definitely an oily-skinned girly, and boy does it annoy me!  But this is just a little miracle in a pump-action bottle!  Even on a cold day, my face just loves to emit the shine.  I radiate.  I 'glow'.  I look like a bad version of the sun I love!  As you may know, we have had some unseasonally good weather lately - car thermometer has reached 33degrees centigrade, but we all know car temperatures lie.  And with this sweltering heat, my face has managed to go through an entire day which included walking, shopping, driving etc etc looking nothing more than healthy.  I am amazed.  After all these years of trying to find a powder to control the shine, all I needed was this moisturiser!  Original review can be found here.  This stuff is a mattifier's dream!  I often mix this with my fave sunblock - the Heliocare Ultra Gel in SPF90.  Beautiful smell, texture and feel.

For foundation, my beloved Nars Sheer Glow is super running out, so I have cast it aside for a while, replacing it with two others.  The first is Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid 2WN1.  I love this.  Beautiful, literally invisible, medium coverage.  I was coveting the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, but it leans pink and this colour match is so much better, with almost the same kind of texture.  A lengthy review will be following!  Now, to a lesser known brand, the Barbara Daly Oil Free Foundation in Almond.  I picked this up on a whim after reading an article about how Barbara Daly used to do Princess Diana's make up.  It was on a 3 for 2 offer in Tesco's and I thought why not?  And why not indeed?  Lovely soft matte finish, medium buildable coverage, controls the old oil problemo, and sits perfectly with my Estee Lauder foundation when I fancy a bit more coverage.

Eyes this month have been loving the usual Mac Paint Pot in Constructivist.  They have also been enamoured with Prestige Skin Loving Minerals Shimmering Trios Mineral Eyeshadow Dust in 02 Luster which I have put up for sale on the blog and on ebay various times without success.  I am so glad I didn't sell this.  It is one pot, divided into three, with variances of bronze eyeshadow pigments - light golden white, bronze, and a chocolately brown.  Absolutely gorgeous.  No idea why I tried to sell it.
 

Topshop Cream Blush in Flush, Head Over Heels, Prime Time and Butterscotch.  Truly obsessed.  Need More.  Want more.  Will have more.  Review of Prime Time here, and the rest to come!
I'm on a nude lip kick at the moment, and no matter which lippy I choose, I have been favouring Maybelline Watershine Gloss in Mauve Star as a top layer.  Beautiful.
As with last month, the best show ever issssssssssssssss Once Upon A Time.  I have watched the finale and OMG you are in for a treat.  Plus I completely see how a second series is going to arise! 
 Also my beloved Game of Thrones is back!
"And on that bombshellllllllllllll..."
Love A.x
p.s. I shall be holding a small blogsale tomorrow featuring Benefit the Porefessional and Mac Frankly Scarlet Blush!
