This Month in Senses: May 2016 (& life update!)

I hope everyone's had a good May and for those in the UK, enjoyed their bank holiday yesterday! Todays This Month in Senses post is going to be a little different. I feel like, now that I'm approaching 6 months into my blogging venture, I have some learning curves I'd like to share. Plus, I have had some very exciting things happen to me recently!

Caudalie Face Masks REVIEW

I had a reaction to some medication and, long story short: my mouth erupted in cold sores and blisters. This basically made the entire area under my nose really, uncomfortably dry and flaky. I didn't want to rub my face or start putting any products on it so I just abandoned putting anything on my face except Zovirax for a week, but afterwards my entire face felt very dehydrated. I went online in search for a hydrating face mask, and stumbled across Caudalie's Moisturising Mask that I wanted to try. When it comes to skincare, if possible I like to try a sample before splurging on the full size, so when I found the Mix & Masks Trio with 3 samples - including the mask I was after - I instantly bought it.

What's New from Stila? REVIEW & SWATCHES

I was eagerly anticipating the launch of Stila's colour correcting palette, as well as their Perfect Me, Perfect Hue palettes. Having been out in the US a bit before they were launched over here in the UK, I'd been spending more time than I'd like to admit ogling over them online. Now that I've finally got them and had some time to play around with them, let's get down to my thoughts!

Nars Under Cover Summer 2016 Collection: Picks & Swatches

Depending on how much or little you've read my blog, you may have noticed I am the #1 fan of Francois Nars. The Under Cover Summer 2016 collection launched on narscosmetics.co.uk in the last couple of days, but I nipped in a week or two earlier and bought my first picks from the new collection from Selfridges! I've since had time to play around with them, so I can let you know what I think.

MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palette REVIEW

My boyfriend kindly bought me the new MAC All The Right Angles Contour Palette in the shade Light on the day it was launched. That was coming up a couple of weeks ago, so I've had a good chance to play around with it, and now I'm ready to share my thoughts on it with you!

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Glow Palette REVIEW

I must admit I was a little on the hesitant side when I saw this. I thought: do I really need another face palette? After sitting on the fence for a few days, I caved. Here's what I think of it:

Jouer Liquid Lipsticks REVIEW & SWATCHES

I was so excited to see that these were available in the UK over on Cult Beauty, so I immediately snapped up the 4 colours that most appealed. I'll give you a hint on what the tone of this review will be: I'm now on the waiting list for certain colours to be restocked ...
