May Favourites

Wednesday, 1 June 2016

It's that time of the month again to round up my monthly favourites! 

A lot happened in May and as a result my life has changed in more ways than one. Whilst some of those events are private, the biggest one is my transition to a vegetarian diet and then to a vegan diet. I've also become more aware of chemicals in every day beauty products and decided to only purchase 100% vegan products. I've also just realised I've bought hardly any make up in May as well, so a big change! 


Make Up Favourites

At the beginning of May the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette was released online in the UK, along with the Sweet Tea bronzer and the Sparkling Bellini blush. I have been obsessed with these three products all month, especially the bronzer! 
Another make up favourite has been the Saturated Colour lipstick in the shade 1st Base. This is the perfect dark nude shade and can be worn day or night!


Random Favourites

As I mentioned earlier I transitioned over to a vegan diet recently which of course meant doing a lot of research. I found Vegan Life magazine in WHsmith and it has been my go to read recently. If you lead or want to lead a vegan lifestyle, then I would 100% recommend picking up a copy! 
A skincare favourite has been the Superdrug Simply Pure toner. It's fragrance free and contains no nasty ingredients, plus it's ridiculously affordable! 
Lastly, my two favourite make up brushes have been the Blush Brush from Tere Mere and the powder brush from Eco Tools. Both are incredibly soft and have replaced my Morphe brushes.

  2. Amazing to hear you've transitioned to veganism! I eat a plant-based diet but can't really call myself fully vegan as I buy beauty products that aren't 100% vegan. Last week I went fully cruelty free with my makeup though!

    1. That's brilliant that you eat a plant-based diet and have transitioned to cruelty free make up! I found taking small steps made the transition to veganism easier rather than diving in at the deep end!

  3. I love ECO Tools. I think they are great quality for the price. How is your new vegan diet so far?

  5. I feel like I really need to jump on the bandwagon and buy the Too Faced palette, their formulas are incredible! Totally jealous of your Sparkling Bellini blusher, I need it in my collection so badly, the packaging alone of those two products is enough to want to buy them xx
