In the month of May 2012, I was soo busy with Auditors at work that I did not get a chance to upload my monthly favourites which is why I am doing May and June in one post. As a result there are going to be quite a few products mentioned.
|Clarins Beauty Flash Balm|
|Mac Irredescent Powder - Belightful|
Mac Irredescent Powder in Beightful is a gorgeous highlighter. I tend to use this on a night out, but now that winter has approached it is perfect for daytime as well. I forgot how gorgeous it really is.
I purchased four of these in Cocoa, Rhubarb, Guava, Watermelon and Nutmeg. They are super pigmented, way more than Revlon Lip Butters. I decided to purchase these instead. They are made with Bees Wax so you can be sure that thay are nourishing on the lips especially in winter. A seperate lipstick and gloss is not needed. Perfect for when you are on the go. It also comes in Champagne and one or two other colours. They can be purchased form Dischem at a super low price. I highly recommend these.
I was surprised with this powder. I did not expect much for the price, but I was impressed. It is supposed to blur imperfections and can be used over blush to set makeup. I mainly use it on my T Zone. I like that it does not dry out my skin. I apply it with a fan brush. It would be comparable to Mac Prep & Prime powder.
I purchased this after I used the permamnet hair straightening kit on my hair. I am trying not to use any products with harsh ingredients on my hair. I like how soft and hydrated it leaves my hair.
I cant rave enough about this product enough. The nail polish on my toe-nails will last for at least 3 weeks without budging. It is worth the price and will repurchase when this is finished.
I used the colour Antique Rose on my toe-nails in the month of May 2012, with Sally Hansen Insta DryTop Coat over it. I love this colour and looks pretty good on my toe-nails.
Goji Berries are supposed to have excellent health benefits. I picked this up from the health Isle in Dischem and tried it. I add some soy milk and I love it. I normally add cranberries to every cereal I try but since I found this, it is all I eat in the morning. It defeinitly has increased my matabolism and it tastes great.
I am a body cream / butter fanatic- the more buttery the better, thanks to my obsession with keeping my heals moist. This product claims to be "super spreadable", leaving your skin "super soft and utterly divine", and, to my delight, it did exactly what it promised. It smells good enough to eat, feels luxe to the touch and left my skin feeling beautifully nourished. I was particularly impressed with the quality and consistency of the cream.
|Fira Bees Wax Lip Sheers Moisturising Lip Color|
|Catrice Prime and Fine Translucent Loose Powder|
|Natur Vital Hair Mask - Sensitive|
|Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Anti-Chip Top Coat|
|Beaute Cosmetics - Antique Rose Nail Polish|
|Natures Choice Miracle Goji Granola|
|Supreme Cream Body Butter|
I received this mascara in one of my Glambox subscriptions. I like that the brush allows you to coat every lash and comb through them so that you do not get clumps. However more than one coat is required if used alone. I like to use this as a "finishing mascara" after I have applied another mascara first.
|Sleek I Divine Palette - AU NATUREL|
I think I showed this palette in a previuos monthly favourites blogpost, but I had to show it again. I found myself reaching for this palette almost everyday in June and creating the same look over and over. My favourite colour from this palette is Regal. I also use Noir everyday to set my black eyeliner and it just intensifies it and finishes the look.
|Copper Plum Nail Polish|
This colour does not look like much in the bottle, but is gorgeous on the toenails. Topped with Sally Hansen Anti Chip Top Coat, it has lasted for 4 weeks.
|Time-Less Nourishing Oil|
|Bionike Defence CodeXage regenerating ant-aging mask|
Sensitive and intolerant skin
This mask feels lxurious on the skin. I apply it directly after I exfoliate and it instantly soothes and moisturises the skin. After I rinse it off, my skin is soo smooth. The Bionike range is sold exlusively at Dischem. I received this as a gift with purchase when I purchased my moisturiser. It also came with an excellent eye cream and a cute purse / bag.
|Estee Lauder: New Pure Color Crystal Lipstick - # 01 Crytal Baby (Creme)|
|Nyx Push Up Bra for eyebrows|
Thanks for looking at my May and June 2012 favourites. I know this was a long post but I needed to play catch -up and I have been truly loving all the products mentioned above.
