May Favourites

Whilst being in the blogging mood and on my last day off until I'm back at college, I thought I would sit down and tell you what my favourite products have been throughout May. I haven't got too many favourites this month as I felt I was constantly talking about the same products but here are the few things I have been enjoying using.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish - Nouvelle Vague LINK
This is definitely going to be one of my favourite products for Spring this year and I feel like it's almost a purple version of the blogger favourite polish; Essie 'Fiji'. The shade is a perfect pastel, pale lilac and you only need two coats to get a good reflection of the true colour. I have it on my nails at the moment and it has only chipped slightly on one nail after roughly 6 days.

Benefit POREfessional Primer LINK
I have always wanted to try this but couldn't justify the price if I didn't like it. I got a sample with ELLE magazine recently and I was surprised how much I have been enjoying using it. It does have an unusual texture but is something I have got used to and in the tube it is a skintone shade but applies clear on the skin. I only apply this on my nose and just onto my cheeks where my makeup tends to wear off first and this has definitely made an improvement! My makeup lasts longer on those areas and doesn't go as shiny as quick.

NARS Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base LINK
I kind of have a love/hate relationship with this primer. One day it keeps my eyeshadow in place perfectly, another day it will still slightly crease where I have blended the darker shade of eyeshadow. I do really like this primer though as unlike my previous £1.50 primer from e.l.f. it keeps my eyeshadow in place for more than a couple of hours. You just need to control how much you apply as that can make a vast difference!

NARS Eyeshadow Duo - Isolde LINK
These are definitely two of the nicest bronze/copper eyeshadows I have seen and this duo has been on my wishlist for as long as I can remember. Bronze eye makeup is one of the main 'go-to' makeup trends at the moment and this duo is perfect for that. They both have excellent pigmentation and have a really soft texture so they are very easy to blend.

Tanya Burr Lipgloss - Chic LINK
Finally a lip product that isn't the Bourjois Peach On The Beach Lip Crayon has made it into my favourites! Tanya Burr's Cosmetics made it into my local Superdrug a bit later than they were originally released and finally chose a shade to try out first. 'Chic' is the perfect nude gloss that isn't too pale or too dark for me and really does seem like a 'my lips but better' shade. If you're eating/drinking then this won't last as long as it would if you're just popping out for an hour or so but it will still last a good few hours. Excellent pigmentation and formula plus it smells like strawberry laces!

Have you tried any of Tanya Burr's cosmetics? What is your favourite shade?
