Three Recent Beauty Faves

Three Recent Beauty Faves, beauty favourites, loving lately, mac prep + prime fix+, H&M beauty cream chestnut lipstick, mac chicory lip pencil, review


I know we're not even mid way through May, but already I've found a few standout products this month. Two of these are actually oldies in my collection and just ones I've rediscovered, whilst one is a more recent purchase. In the interest of keeping my monthly favourites nice and streamlined, I thought I'd round up these three and why I've been loving them a little earlier this month!

H&M Beauty Cream Chestnut Lipstick - Okay, so I've definitely spoken about this one on the blog before, but lately I've neglected this shade slightly because I've been all about liquid lipsticks this last month. This is such a gorgeous shade, a lovely brownish pinky nude and I tend to crack this out when I don't have a lot of time and need a lipstick I can just chuck in my handbag. Super affordable and fantastic quality!

MAC Lip Pencil in Chicory - I bought this liner absolutely ages ago and it's one of the ones I've used the least since purchasing. As it's a very warm toned reddy-brown, I find it's not the most flattering shade on me when worn alone. However, recently I've been lining my lips with this before using some of my warmer toned brown lipsticks and it's made my lipstick application a whole lot easier. It also makes such a difference to how long my lipstick lasts. This may not be one I sub in for every day use but it's a great one for making your lipstick really go the extra mile!

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ - I've been meaning to try this product for so long and when I finally came to the realisation this month that you could also get an itty-bitty travel size, I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy it. Believe it or not, this is my first foray into makeup fixing sprays although I've been curious about them for absolutely ages. This product is fab for not only setting things in place, but also taking makeup back down a notch if things start to look a wee bit cakey. It adds some glow back into your face and perks up flat looking makeup - what's not to love?

So those are a few of the products I've been loving lately! I'm also gearing towards spring and summer with this absolutely gorgeous weather that's been going on lately! I've even managed to get somewhat of a tan! It may well have promptly faded two days later, but I'm counting it! What are some of the products you've been loving so far this month?

  1. I really want to get my hands on some H&M beauty products, unfortunately none of the stores around me have brought the beauty counters in yet. And id rather see the products in person before buying. The lip liner sounds perfect as I've been loving terracotta lip shades of late and that'd pair perfectly with those! And I can only imagine how lovely it'd look on its own.

    1. I always prefer to see beauty products in person before buying them too, hopefully the stores around you will start carrying H&M Beauty soon! The lip pencil is definitely more of a terracotta shade, which isn't flattering on me but I imagine it would look good by itself on a lot of different skin tones! xo

  5. Have you ever tried the urban decay or l'oreal fixing sprays? Do you have any preference between them and mac's prep and prime?

    1. I'm sorry, I haven't tried the Urban Decay or L'Oreal fixing sprays, although I really want to! If I do, I'll write a little post comparing them! xo
