Another month has flown by, as usual, and it's time again to list my favourite products for the month. I had a hard time narrowing it down, so there's quite a few bits this month, but I've been loving them all.

On the eyes, I've been loving my Wet n Wild Color Icon Trio in I'm Getting Sunburned (£3.50, ebay), particularly the lower two shades, for an intense golden smokey eye - the dark brown crease shade, flecked with copper shimmer, is so unique. I talked about it in more detail here. I've been using my Japonesque Eyeshadow Crease Brush ($13.99) for shadows a lot this month too - it allows for pretty precise application. Here are my original thoughts.
I've also loved the occasional venture into cooler colours, with Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Strut (£14) swept over the eye and NARS Larger than Life Eyeliner in Abbey Road (£19) in the waterline. I reviewed each here, and here.
For cheeks, I've been stippling on Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Androgen (£17), which I reviewed here, for a springtime, glowing flush. I press it on with my MAC 188 brush (£26), or with my fingers.
For lips, it's been the subtle sheer wash of pink with MUA Shade 4 (£1) -reviewed here - or the bold, glossy pout of Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang (£5.99), which I reviewed here.
On the nails, I've fallen back in love with Max Factor's Fantasy Fire (£3.99) something of a cult shade which is a great duochrome topcoat.
Once a week, I'm adding freshness, glow and life to my skin with the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask (£24 on special offer!) - I sung it's praises here.
A spritz of Miss Dior Cherie and that's me for the month!
