In a blink of an eye, May has come to an end and it is now time to share with you my monthly favourites. I always love to dive into my makeup drawer and find all the products that I used frequently during the past month and these are the ones I gathered and surprise surprise, it is all makeup related. Oh well..

For the first time ever, I tried out the Benefit Porefessional Primer and I have to say that I fell in love with it. It erases any visible pores creating such a smooth base for your foundation. I really notice a massive difference on my makeup application when applying this primer. Now I know why everyone raves about it.
When this primer finished, I felt lost and really wanted to repurchase it but, honestly, it is worth £25 and I was not up to pay all that for it although I do think it is worth it. Little did I know that now Boots has a NYX counter and I have heard so many great things about the NYX Angel Veil Primer, specially by the beautiful Kathleen Lights that I had to buy it and try it out and I really fell in love with it. It leaves my skin really smooth and I notice that when I do long shifts that my makeup stays in place for much longer.

For me, spring requires a bright lipstick or pink nudes. Recently I have been loving a bright red lipstick with sort of orange undertones: the Maybelline Sirene in Scarlet. The KIKO Lip Pencil in the shade Strawberry Red is also beautiful, although a bit more orange then the lipstick itself. Love it anyways, specially in beautiful sunny days.

A blush with a bit of an highlight in the mix is something I have been adoring too and this L'oreal Paris Sculpt Blush Trio in Nude Beige is so, so beautiful! It has a mix of pink and peachy kind of blush with a lighter shade with gold undertones that is perfect for highlighter but I have just been swirling my blush brush mixing all the colors and it gives me a beautiful blush with a natural glow. Absolutely in love.

I have been looking for the perfect contour brush that is also affordable and there is no better brand than Morphe to find that. I found this Morphe MB35 brush on BeautyBay and it has been my go to contour brush. It is dense enough to apply a decent amount of product and also it blends the product really well. It is so soft and it has such great quality for the price that I can't tell you enough how much I really love it!

What have been your favourite beauty products this month?
