THE END OF MAY EDIT.

It's truly bonkers in my mind that this is my third monthly edit! May has really whizzed by, and I find myself almost half way into the year already.




We've had a mix of beautiful weather this month, which has obviously been a highlight and a joy, but I've perhaps more surprisingly really enjoyed and savoured the more damp, humid days of spring rain. I'm currently sitting at my desk, window open, and the gentle birdsong and patter of rain dripping through the trees is so beautifully simple and calming. Not to mention the huge peonies to the right of me, and John Mayer on in the background ;)

In beauty news, I've really taken a shine to pinky lipsticks recently. I never used to be a lipstick person full stop, but perhaps from the tail end of last year, I've started wearing more of a blush and lip, and I'm almost now at the point where I feel my face looks washed out without any lip colour.

From top to bottom on the swatches, Rimmel's Leader Of The Pink (I swatched and tried on the range for you here) and NYX San Paulo, both mattes, and then Barry M's 167 and Aerin Pretty, although Liebling and Geranium are gorgeous too. Rubbing the Rimmel shade into my lips to sheer it out is actually really pretty and wearable, I tend to find it patchy otherwise. 

I mentioned in my last monthly edit by the way how much I was looking forward to the release of this Chanel cushion foundation. Well, I've got to say I'm unimpressed having played with it. It's said to be something like 58% water, and that's pretty much all it feels like. I'm all for a light base, but even I think, what's the point?

Anyway! Here are May's posts, in case you missed any:

  1. I was also so interested in the Chanel foundation but the price for a "nothing" product, which is basically water with a but of pigmentation... not so sure..
