May Monthly Favourites - Beauty Edition by Stephs World

Monthly Favourites // May 2017 – Beauty Edition

Hi again if you have come over from my May Monthly Favourites post. If not, my full Monthly Favourites is already live on my blog for you to browse. This post as I explained is to do with all the Beauty products I have been loving this month because there are quite a few.

I don’t usually love so many beauty products, so can fit them into my normal Monthly Favourites post, but this month I found myself spending so much on beauty. Oops!

I will split this post into Lips, Base & Skincare.


Mac // Fleur de Force – Limited Edition Lipstick

So after my struggle to get this Lipstick, I finally got my hands on the amazing Nude Lipstick. It is a creamsheen finish in the perfect nude colour. It’s perfect!

Bobbi Brown // Lip Color – Carnation

This is my first product from Bobbi Brown and I picked it up from Selfridges in Birmingham on a whim. I loved this peach pink colour, which is perfect for the Summer! The finish is so smooth and it is so pigmented. I love it!

Mac // Lip Liner – Soar

When I ordered the Fleur de Force Lipstick, I also ordered the Lip Liner in Soar as I’ve been looking for a lovely pink Lip Liner. I loved this colour and had to order it. I usually use this liner with my pink Lipsticks and also the NYX Lip Cream in Istanbul (very light pink) and it makes it go a beautiful dusky rose.

NYX // Lip Cream – Stockholm

This has got to be my favourite Lip Product of the month! I usually hate matte liquid lipsticks, but the NYX ones are amazing. This is the perfect Nude for me and I am glad I picked it up. For £6, this is a steal!

This was a favourite of mine last month, but it has to be my favourite this month too.

NYX // Lip Primer

I have got a full review of the NYX Lip Primer which went live yesterday on my blog.

Clinique // Chubby in the Nude – Foundation Stick

This was a big favourite of mine last year and I found myself returning to it when the hot weather come again. This foundation is so light and lets the air get to my face, where I was finding my liquid foundation was making me very warm.

I did a full review of this foundation last year which you can check out if you want some more information about it.

Clinique // Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette

I love this blusher palette. It is light and easy to take around with you. There are 3 shades in the palette so you can either mix them around or use just one. I tend to mix the middle and dark shade together and use the light one as a highlighter. In the lighter days though, I have opted to miss out the dark pink.

Lush // Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask

I have got a full ‘first impressions’ post about this Face Mask to go live very soon. I really have been loving this Face Mask, so much that I went and got myself the next product.

Lush // Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub

This scrub is brilliant and I’ve only used it once so far. I used it on my face, arms and legs and it really has shifted any dead skin. This texture of the product is very smooth and a bit grainy – sort of like when you mix butter and sugar together. It feels great going onto the skin and my face feels super smooth now.

What have you been loving?

  • I’m really not a nude shade lip person lol creme cup is as far as I go haha it just doesn’t suit me.
    I keep saying I need to try the lush skincare range!!! Xxxxxx

  • Confetti & Cashmere

    I love Lush products but have never tried any of their Skincare range! This mask looks amazing! I’ve heard Lily Pebbles talking about Mac Soar and it looks like such a lovely shade. I sometimes just wear liners all over my lips. xx

    I want to give that clinique foundation a go! I love their 2-1 foundation xxxx

  • Stacey

    Wow – you certainly have been using lots of products this month. I think every blogger I follow picked up one of those Fleur lipsticks. I’ve recently started using the Lush Mask of Magnaminty and I love it!

  • Ocean salt is one of my alll time favourite lush products it’s amazing! I’ve also tried the face mask but it wasn’t my favourite amongst their large range of masks x

    NYX soft matte lip cremes are my favourite!! So lightweight and lots of pretty nudes! Glad you finally got hold of the Fleur Mac lipstick, sounded like such a stressful process.
