May was an incredible month for me. Busy, quick and quite challenging, but very fun! I had a few gigs / concerts, an amazing beauty event and spent a lot of quality time with my friends and family. If you’d like to find out what my May Monthly Favourites 2017 were, just keep on reading!
MAC SOFT AND GENTLE
This month I have been really enjoying natural makeup. I’ve popped away my highly pigmented makeup and have gone back to some old holy grail, simple Katina makeup. My very first highlighter was Mac Soft and Gentle. Probably like you, I was encouraged to buy this product after watching many YouTube videos back in the day. I really like how this highlighter isn’t highly concentrated. It doesn’t give me an intense highlight in the one spot, but a subtle highlight over the high points of my cheeks.
BENEFIT PRECISELY MY BROW PENCIL – SHADE 6
My favourite brand for brow products is and has been Benefit Cosmetics for quite some time. When I initially reviewed their entire brow range last year here, I remember enjoying Precisely My Brow Pencil, but I actually liked Goof Proof more. Times have changed and I’m now head over heels for this magical brow pencil! Originally, I thought that I was shade 4 or 5. But, after experimenting with these pencils for quite some time, I realised that those shades weren’t my exact match. After a recent Benefit event, I took home shade 6 and behold, a perfect match! This brow pencil is so lovely. It creates precise brow strokes and they aren’t too pigmented which keeps things looking natural.
LIP CRAYONS – L’OREAL SEXY BALM* & COVERGIRL JUMBO GLOSS BALM*
I have no idea why but I’ve been obsessed with lip crayons this month. The texture of both of these balms is incredibly smooth and they are so easy to touch up on the go. I love reaching for the L’Oreal Sexy Balm in 108 WHAAAT? for days I’m going to work and want something very natural. The Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm in 208 Berries N’ Cream has been my go to for lunches and nights out.

TANDA CANDLE – MELBOURNE*
This is a new addition to my candle family, but wow am I obsessed!! This candle smells absolutely incredible. It is literally the perfect combination of dark chocolate and coffee. It’s one of those scents that lingers and I could even smell how beautiful it was before I even opened up the package. I also like how the wick is wooden. It’s a nice little touch. In case you were wondering, this is a Soy Candle.
L’OREAL ELVIVE EXTRAORDINARY OIL-IN-CREAM* &
L’OREAL ELVIVE SMOOTH INTENSE HEAT PROTECT CREAM*
Last August, I included these two products in my favourites. I mentioned that they were the only two products I use in my hair once I get out of the shower. Well, the case is still the same! During summer, I do get quite lazy and neglect my hair. However, the weather has really cooled down and I’m back to caring. I’ve returned back to these two because when they work together, I get insanely smooth hair and I feel very comfortable using heat on my hair. I don’t feel or see any damage, and my hair smells incredible.
