Very Late May Favourites

(Please excuse how grubby my Nars packaging is..but that is the reality with Nars)

L'oreal True Match Foundation
I wasn't totally sold on this foundation at first as it took a lot of blending to get a nice finish, but since giving birth my skin seems to have become less oily and now I love it!! It's so easy to work with and gives a lovely soft finish. I also like the fact it contains SPF17.

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser
I know I mentioned in a previous post that I was trying to buy cheaper makeup and skincare, but I've got a couple of tubes left of this (bought a couple in an ASOS sale) and I do absolutely adore this product. It's like no other tinted moisturiser out there as it gives such amazing coverage and really perks up the skin. I have this in Light 2 - Alaska, which is best when I've just used fake tan, but it does blend quite easily so I could get away with this when I'm paler. This contains SPF30 so is great for holidays, which is when I usually wear this the most.


Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
Being a new mummy, I have very dark circles most of the time, so illuminating concealers are a fact concealers in general are a must. I love this because it brightens under my eyes, doesn't crease and is budget friendly.


Nuxe Reve De Miel
I have been meaning to buy this for (whats seems like) years after so many bloggers/vloggers have raved about it. This lip balm is without a doubt, the best I've ever used. Before this I was using Lanolips 101 Ointment, which is really good too, but it just doesn't compare to the results this gives.

I've been obsessed with Once Upon a Time the past few weeks which is a TV series all about fairy tales. I loved it so much, i'm tempted to watch it again. Since giving birth (and spending a lot of time sitting around breastfeeding) I've also watched Call the Midwife, the first series of American Horror Story and many, many films. Netflix is a must for me these past few months!

Minstrels & Tea
Tea keeps me going and Minstrels are my mummy evening treat.



  1. I'm completely with you on the need for concealer - those 3am/4am/5am night feeds do nothing for my dark circles! Have you tried the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer? That has a really good coverage or for a higher end concealer with incredible coverage I always go for Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. Incredible.

    1. I've heard lots of good things about the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer! I love the Collection a drawer full of concealer since James was born :) Although I am lucky on the sleep front at the moment as he is doing longer stretches now.

  2. I really like the NARS tinted moisturiser too, love how lightweight it feels <3
