Hello! Since it's the end of start of another month, it's time for another favourites round up. In this post I have combined my April and May favourites in one as I did not use a lot of different items throughout the last months.

Essence Instant Matte Setting Spray // This is the only product that I picked up recently. It was a newly released product so I was excited to try it out. More so because I had not ever had a setting spray before. I use it after applying makeup to mattify and set the products. The only small problem that  I found about it is the smell which is kind of chemically  (if that's even a word) but it goes away after a few minutes and so it it doesn't bother me that much.

Kiko Smooth Temptation Lipstick 04 // I have featured this many times before as it's a really lovely lipstick. The formula is really buttery, it smells amazing and I love the shade. It has been my go to spring pick since it is a nice shade of pink.

Jord Wood Watch Ely in Maple // If you have been following this blog from it's early months than you might have seen this watch before. It was actually my first blogger mail! I had kind of forgotten about it but I have been wearing it a lot lately. This is mostly because I needed a watch to keep track of the time during exams but I have also been wearing it when going out. The thing that I like the most about it is that it is made out of wood. It makes it special as this is not something that you come across everyday!

Essence All About Romance Palette // This brick eyeshadow palette of six has a mixture of shimmery, metallic and matt shades. They all complement each other which makes it perfect for creating eyeshadow looks. Lately I have found another use for this palette. When mixed together, the top three shades create a gorgeous highlighter.

Nine West Glasses // I recently went for an eyesight check up and found out that I needed glasses. After trying to decide between two pairs of glasses for a looong time I decided to go with this pair. If you know me I'm not one to experiment with colours but I wanted to try something different. The maroon colour looks lovely and it does not stand out.

Have you tried any of these items?

  1. I adore JORD watches so much - they're my favourite brand of watches for sure. Oh wow, that Essence Palette looks amazing - so perfect for this time of the year. Great post as always, Sarah!

    1. Thank you! I also love Jord watches. They are so unique :)

  2. I used to use Essence's products so much when I started doing my make up, I should try some of their newer products as they sound so good and are quite inexpensive! x

  3. I love seeing affordable products in monthly favourites! The Essence spray sounds like a bargain, I just ordered a freedom setting spray so I'll give that a go first :) I did pop to the Essence counter on the weekend, but it's a really small counter, and so they didn't have a lot of stock :) Enjoy your weekend xx

  4. I really like the display of the photos with the plants :D Your glasses are lovely, I like their shape and colour! Also the wood watch is a great, timeless staple - no wonder it's still a favourite of yours!
