May Favorites: Makeup, Skin Care and Hair care

Happy new month! I can't believe it's June already! This means only one thing! It's time to share with you my May Beauty Favorites! This month I've been loving some makeup, skin care and hair care products, some of which have been staples in my routine and others I've discovered just recently.

May 2013 favorite lipsticks and lip care, Barry M TMPL henna lipstick, Max Factor Color Elixir Pink Brandy, Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond Rouge Solitaire, Vaseline lip therapy with aloe vera
May 2013 favorite lipsticks and lip care, Barry M TMPL henna lipstick, Max Factor Color Elixir Pink Brandy, Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond Rouge Solitaire,
I've been absolutely loving Vaseline Lip Therapy Petroleum Jelly with Aloe Vera for dry skin and lips. I've been applying to my lips every morning and evening and they feel softer than ever! I love everything about this lip balm - the subtle flavor, the consistency and the retro container! 
Price: £1.99
Find it at: Boots and Superdrug

If you're wondering what's with the green lipstick check out my full review of the Barry M Touch of Magic Lip Paint. In short, it's a henna lipstick that works with the PH levels in your lips and take a different shade of pink on everyone! It's one of the coolest lip products that I've ever had!
Price: £4.49
Find it at: Boots, Superdrug, Littlewoods and Isme

The lipstick that I've been using the most is Pink Brandy from the Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstik range. It's a gorgeous corally - pink shade and the formula is very hydrating and comfortable to wear.
Price: £7.99
Find it at: Boots, Superdrug and

Last but not least I've been loving this gourgeous orangy - red shade called Rouge Solitaire from the Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond lipstick collection. It has a semi-mat finish, so it's not too drying and it's the perfect summer red! 

For eyes I've had not one, but two favorite combos this month!

May 2013 Favorite eye shadows and eye liner MUA Undress Me Too Eye Shadow Palette and Loreal Super Liner Perfect Slim
This is the gorgeous MUA Undress Me Too Eyeshadow Palette. It has a mix of 12 pearl and mat natural colors. The pigmentation and quality are great! It s supposed to be a dupe of the Naked 2 pallete. I don't own it but from what I've seen online the colors are exactly the same!
Price: £4.00
Find it at: Superdrug

The L'oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim has been my favorite eyeliner for a very long time. This is my 4th or 5th one and I will continue to repurchase it! It has a very precise fine tip and a great staying power! Unlike other similar eyeliners it's in the blackest black color you can imagine!
Price: £6.00
Find it at: Superdrug

May 2013 Favorite Eye Shadows Maybelline 24 hour Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze and Rimmel London Scandaleyes Eye shadow stick/crayon in Bad Girl Bronze
The Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo eye shadows are definitely one of my favorite eye products! They are creamy shadows that dry into powder, so there's no creasing. The pigmentation and lasting power are amazing! I use On and On Bronze (Bad to the Bronze in the US) on it's own or as a base for other shadows and I can't stress enough how much I love it!
Price: £4.99
Find it at: Boots and Superdrug

Another great, multipurpose eye product is the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick/Crayon. It has a 24 hour water proof formula, goes on super creamy and you can line your eyes or smudge it and use it as an eye shadow on it's own. The only thing that bother's me is that it's not a twist up and has to be sharpened. This is the shade 003 Bad Girl Bronze.
Price: £4.49
Find it at: Boots and Superdrug

May 2013 body care favorite: Nip + Fab Coconut Latte Dry Skin Fix Body Butter
My favorite body product this month has definitely been the Nip + Fab Coconut Latte Dry Skin Fix Body Butter. I've received in a Glossy Box a while ago and I've been loving it so much! It smells amazing, especially if you love coffee as much as  do! The formula is great, it sinks into the skin right away leaving it soft and moisturized! I will definitely be buying the other scents (Pistachio Sundae, Cherry Tarte and Mango Smoothie) of the range and in bigger sizes! 
Price: £8.49 for 200ml or £2.95 for 50ml 
Find it at: Boots

May 2013 favorite hair care: Neutrogena T/Gel Shampoo for greasy hair
The hard water and wet weather where I live makes my hair super greasy and before I found the Neutrogena T/Gel Shampoo for Greasy Hair I couldn't go a day without washing my hair. Now, when I use it I can go around, not washing my hair for as long as 2 or 3 days! It is on the pricey side but it is totally worth the money if you have oily hair and a sensitive scalp and you don't want to wash your hair every single day! 
Price: £6.99
Find it at: Boots

Do let me know if you'd like me to write a full review of any of these products and tell me what are your beauty favorites! :)
