 essie avenue maintain | topshop the damned lipstick | rimmel lash accelerator mascara | DHC deep cleansing oil | clarins gentle exfoliating toner | elemental herbology moisture milk | NARS …and god created the woman palette | palmers cocoa butter natural bronze tan

another month, another lot of favourites. oh, and some recent purchases! i know i said i wouldn’t, but i couldn’t leave that £10 off space nk offer alone plus house of fraser had 10% off too…
anyways, please give my little video a watch and a thumbs up if you like it! i
shall be trying much harder to learn how to edit videos etc when i
finish university, so any tips and encouragement will go a long way.


i wish that tan stuff didn’t have a smell, it’s really quite strong and my boyfriend detests it haha. though, one thing i will say about it is that after putting it on three times you will have a fairly decent (aka two weeks in spain) looking tan! i look like a different person right now. well, apart from my face, which is still white!
super thanks to kat from tales of a pale face for sending me her little sample of the cleansing oil, i adore it!

bobbi brown hydrating eye cream | NARS pierre hardy nail duo in vertebra | lipstick queen bright rose sinner lipstick | shu uemura eyelash curlers | bobbi brown cream blush in calypso coral | REN invisible pores detox mask | NARS creamy concealer | NARS satin lip pencil in luxemburg | clarins pure and radiant mask | clarins instant light complexion perfector in rose shimmer

so, can we please discuss how pretty the pierre hardy for NARS nail collection is? i really wanted the peachy and navy set too, but i already have similar colours. this beautiful coral and dusty pink pair, on the other hand, are shades missing from my collection so i’m excited to adorn my fingers with them. so glad to finally get my mitts on their satin lip pencil in luxemburg too, as it was sold out in space nk. also, i’m positively ecstatic to be reunited with my beloved REN invisible pores detox mask, get. on.
i’m just really happy with everything to be honest, saving up for things you like always feels good!

what are you loving this month? have you done a favourites post? let me know!
