Yes I have indeed been buying yet more make-up. That’s ok though, it means I get to review and share my recent purchases with you lovely folks and I have to say, last months haul was REALLY fabulous.

Also a few of my selection are products that readers have recommended on previous beauty posts, I have duly taken note and subsequently had a butchers for myself, contributing towards Rock My Style is proving to be very expensive.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow £14.00

The texture and longevity of this shadow is amazing, it’s so sheeny and one sweep instantly makes you look more awake.

The colour “blunt” is somewhere in the middle of a yellow and champagne gold, I use it as my “everyday” shade and I’m definitely going to be investigating additional hues.

Urban Decay is available at Selfridges.

Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow £38.50

As you may have read in my body changes post yesterday, my skin is currently very very dry and even though I am seemingly constantly applying moisturiser I just can’t seem to get back my glow.

This is a great “health” faker, I wear it as you might a highlighter but you can add it to your tinted moisturiser/base of choice to add some much needed lustre.

Charlotte Tilbury is available at Selfridges

CND Vinylux 7 Day Nail Polish £5.87

This was a reader recommend and I LOVE it! With the CND topcoat it does last a good 5 days without chips (no need for a base coat either) but for me the major plus is the fact it doesn’t take long to dry and the application is very smooth.

The shade “Rubble” is a delicious grey/brown, not dissimilar to the now discontinued Chanel “Particuliere” which is one of my favourites. You’ve got to love a dupe – especially one that’s a bargain.

Seventeen Cheek Stamp Blush £4.99

I bought this blush in “Made You Look” on a whim, it looked fun (there is even a mirror in the base) and quite compact which is essential for me these days (I have so much bloody other stuff to lug around, my make-up takes a distinct back seat!)

It’s actually very clever, the colour is a pretty pink “pop” shade and the formulation is silky and blendable. Realistically you can’t just “stamp” it on (unless you favour the Great Aunt Sally appearance) but you can dab on a pinch then blend with your fingers. It certainly saves on having to carry a brush.

Seventeen is available exclusively at Boots

Soap And Glory Supercat Liner £6.00

A huge thanks to reader Becca who said this was amaze, it certainly is. No flaking, fading or smudging and it goes on quickly and easily, I have been wearing it every day since I first swept it on (and over eyeshadow – the nib doesn’t seem to go all clogged either, result!)

Did I mention it was only six quid? Yep. My Lancome Artliner has officially been replaced.

Soap and Glory is also available at Boots

So then, what cosmetic treats did you splurge on in May?

Anything else I simply must buy?!
