May Favorites!

Hi everyone,
I am back!!! You can probably tell that I haven't been very active on my blog for the past two weeks but today I am getting back into the swing of things. With it being exam season and having a bit of bloggers block, I didn't want to force any awful content out on my blog, so I thought I would make June a fresh start. Today I am going to be sharing with you my May favorites! Enjoy!

Makeup
Mac Lipstick in Shanghai Spice - I bought this while I was in America (haul linked here) and I have not stopped using it since. It is very similar to Velvet Teddy and Kinda Sexy, both of which I own, but this is a creme sheen finish, which I much prefer. This lipstick gives a lovely glossy look to the lips with a bit of colour, very moisturizing and goes with every makeup look. Would definitely recommend this lipstick to anyone!
ABH Dip Brow Pomade - I am a little late to jump on this bandwagon but I love this product. It is a lovely gel formula, that is really easy to apply and lasts the whole day. The shade taupe matches me perfectly and this has definitely been a staple product for me this month. If you are beginner to brows, I would say avoid this just because it is a little tricky at first but if your looking for a new brow product, give this a whirl.
Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in Pink Frosting - This blush has a very wired concept, it feels a little like putty but you use it as a cream blush. It is a beautiful satin formula with great pigmentation, it's easy to blend and lasts longer than a powder blush. I love to use this with my stipple brush and the colour itself is just beautiful for spring/ summer.

Skincare/ Body Care
Lush Tea Tree Toner Water - This is a recent purchase but I have fallen in love with it. I have never tried any lush skincare before this but I think I might have to now, because I love this so much. When I bought this, I did not expect to love it so much but it is so refreshing on the skin once you have cleansed and is now going to be my summer toner.
Simple Protecting Moisture Cream - Since the UK has decided to be a little sunny I have switched my normal moisturizer out for one with spf in. If you have freckles (or not), wearing spf is very important even if the sun isn't beaming, it's still there. This is a lovely moisturizer for summer as it has the spf (30) but it is very cooling. It is a little thick at first but once blended into the skin, you can't feel it.
The Body Shop Luffer - A bit of a weird body product but we all use them. Luffers aren't really something I trial to find the perfect one, but since using this Body Shop one, my skin has started to thank me. I find myself not scrubbing my skin as much because the luffer almost exfoliates for me by just using my shower gel.

Music
Dangerous Woman Album - Not going to lie, I am not the biggest Ariana Grande fan, but my friend Penny is obsessed, so she is to blame for this favorite. She goes on and on about the album so I wanted to see what it was about, and I actually quite like it. It is very mature for Ariana but I love the old school vibe of the album.

Film/TV/Books
Sherlock - Okay, I am so late on this, but it's never too late right? My friend Sophie is obsessed (trust me!) with Sherlock and so I wanted to see what the fuss was about. First episode in, I was hooked. I love the programme so much! The whole concept behind the character Sherlock Homes, fascinates me. I am now all caught up and ready for the next year!

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know you how May went for you in the comments. Have a great day!
