  • May Wishlist

    I planned my whole day around taking photos for a blog post on my April Favourites, only to find out my camera battery was flat. Blogger problems? So instead, I thought I would give you a glimpse into the beauty and fashion products that I would love to get my hands on in May.

    Let’s just jump straight in:

    gerard cosmetics.jpg

    Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick – Iced Mocha, £9.50. Like everyone else, I am a huge fan of matte lipsticks, especially those in liquid form. They are easy to apply and very ‘Kylie Jenner’. They are said to be hydrating on the lips, long-lasting and cruelty free. I have several friends who have a couple of these lipsticks and swear by them so they are definitely something I want to try. The Iced Mocha colour looks right up my street.

    mary lou manizer.jpgtheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Luminizer – £17.50. Again, I have heard such good things about this little beauty. This highlighter appears to something in between my MAC Mineralise Skin Finish (Lightscapade) and BECCA Skin Perfector (Champagne Pop) which is perfect as I would then have a highlighter to cover all bases. This product is said to be highly pigmented and the packing is quirky and fun.


    Urban Decay alice palette.jpgUrban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Paletteprice to be confirmed. When I heard about this launch I was so excited. I am a huge Disney fan so Disney themed make-up is exactly what I need in my collection. In this palette, there are a mix of 20 shimmers and mattes in a whole array of colours ranging from day-to-day colours, such as Dutchess, to fun, out-of-this-world colours such as Hatter. Even the box is fun but I will let you discover that yourselves.

    too faced bronzer.jpg

    Too Faced Sweetheart Bronzer – Sweet Tea, £22. Too Faced is a brand that I have always wanted to try but the price has always put me off. With a little shimmer, this bronzer looks perfect for summer to make your skin gleam. I like that there are two shades so you can either use them separately or take a large brush and swirl it around the two. I know that Make Up Revolution have a bronzer very similar in style to this so I may try it out instead as it it only £4.99. If you are interested in a bronzer that won’t break the bank, you’ll find it here.


    whistles matte croc.pngWhistles Matte Croc Rivington Clutch – Pale Pink, £85.  I am a handbag fiend and would buy a new handbag every week if I could. I’ve wanted a Whistles clutch for quite a while now and when I saw this one I just knew it could be the one. It is the perfect size to hold all your essentials on a night out while still looking dainty. I mostly wear black, grey and white clothes so I think this nude pink clutch could be exactly what I need to inject a little colour into my look.

    asos heeled sandals.jpg

    ASOS TEMPT Lace Up Heeled Sandals – £30.  Being a little on the shorter side, I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of heeled sandals for my trip to Thailand in June to give me some height. I came across these and I think I will definitely be ordering them. They are black, chunky and incredibly ‘me’. The laced up detailing makes them very on trend too. Even though they are heeled, I think they will be comfy for days where I want to do a little walking but still look fashionable. I’d team these during the day with a pair of denim shorts and a baggy white t-shirt or wear them in the evening with a floaty skirt and camisole.

    I had better get saving!

    What is on your May Wishlist? Let me know.

      I want to try the too faced bronzer too! I’m never going to order from Gerard Cosmetics!! I purchased 3 of their Lipsticks 4 days later got a back order notice. They couldn’t give me a ship date so I needed to just cancel the order since I am only living where I am temporarily I called LITERALLY 20- 30 times over 3-4 days and every time at 4 minute hold their phone disconnects. The customer service was just awful!! I finally just sent an email and about a week later they gave me a refund!! I didnt even get to try their product!!

      I have the luminizer highlighter and love it. It’s not too powerful like other highlighters can be. I’m also one the fairer side and it compliments my skin very well! Great post!
