May Favourites 2011

I was hoping to do this at the beginning of June/end of May but I got a little side tracked and like they say, better late than never. For the past month, I've been trying out a lot of new products, plus sticking to a few firm favourites so I have a lot of favourites for the month, but I decided to wittle it down to a few rather than bore you with endless opinions on various products all in one post (plus, I may need some of them for June's Favourites!)

Urban Decay Naked Palette - I ummed and arred about getting this as it was quite expensive and I was worried I wouldn't use it that much. I couldn't be more wrong! I might as well sell all of my other eyeshadows (I won't though!) as I've only used this since I bought it. The colours are all perfect and the make up brush applies them perfectly. If you're considering it, get it. You won't regret it. :)

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish - I reviewed this here so I won't talk too much about it as you can read my opinions on the blog post. I've really enjoyed using this and I've noticed quite a difference to my skin.

John Frieda 3 Day Straight -  Anything that controls my hair in the slightest is a miracle in my eyes and this product is amazing. It doesn't leave my hair perfectly straight, but it does save me over half an hour each day as I don't need to straighten it as much. Last week, John Frieda was on offer in Boots (2 for £7.50) and so I managed to get two instead of one for £6.99 - bargain! (I did tweet this and I hope you all took full advantage of a practically buy-one-get-one-free situation!) The offer is still on now so get there while you can!

Sigma F80 Brush - I received this brush from Sigma and I haven't stopped using it. I had previously never used a brush for foundation but now I don't know why I didn't! It applies perfectly and as soon as I get enough money, I'm going to get my hands on this brush kit.

Nars Illuminator - I received this with GlossyBox and I knew I would love this. It provides a perfect glow and lasts all day. For a better review see here.

What are your May favourites? Feel free to leave your links to them below.
