May Must Haves

Well, another month is drawing to a close and summer is getting well and truly under way, yippee! As soon as I felt those first summer rays on my skin, I happily began filling up my make up bag with some nice summertime products-any excuse.

Here are the products that I loved this month.

 Nyx  Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee   



 This gorgeous butter gloss is moisturising without being sticky. The colour pay off is great and the shades are really pretty, ranging from beautiful nudes to pastel pinks to stunning fuschias. Creme Brulee is a lovely peach nude gloss, perfect for a casual summer lip. It’s my most used product this month and definitely suits bronzed skin.

I love to contour every day and this stick has made my life so much easier. It’s available in 4 shades, so there will be one to suit all skin tones. You simply add your bronzing pencil to contour and use the other side to highlight. It’s that easy!

Nyx Tame and Frame Brow Pomade 


A lot of you will probably have tried the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade by now. The Nyx Tame and Frame is a good dupe, except it dries more quickly and is a little bit harder to blend out as a result. There are five great shades in this product, all of which offer great colour pay off and are easy to apply. It is also priced really reasonably.

The Balm Schwing Eyeliner


 As you can tell from my last three purchases, we got Nyx in my local town. We also got the Balm and Flormar. All we’re missing now are Cailyn products, and I’ll be officially broke!

 I got the Balm Schwing eyeliner, which is incredible! It’s easy to apply, has a nice tapered felt tip brush for accurate application. It’s inky enough to create a nice winged look and dries pretty quickly too. Winging it 🙂

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation  


This foundation is actually one of the best I’ve used and it’s at the lower end of the price scale. I think i even got it on offer for €7.49, and it normally retails at  €10.49-BARGAIN! It gives great coverage, which leaves skin looking healthy and dewy. The shades are all beautifully warm too and just give a nice radiant glow. The product is transfer resistant and will last up to 25 hours if any of you want to leave your make-up on for two days!

Those are my go to make up products this month. Have you guys tried any new brands or product lines? Let me know in the comments.
