June Favourites

 
 

Hey beauties! Somehow we are already half way through the year already! June has flown by and now it is July which can only mean one thing, a monthly favourite! In the month of June a lot of fun things happened and has been one of the best months this year! Anyway let me get on with my favourite products.

Beauty
 
Earlier in June I picked up the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation which I was a little bit unsure as to whether to buy it or not because the last time I bought a foundation it was completely the wrong and I barely used it. But I am really impressed with this foundation, it is light to medium coverage but I quite like that as it feels light on my skin. Also it is the perfect match to my skin and looks very natural.

For my birthday I asked for the Real Techniques Stippling Brush as I thought I might use it for cream blush, but actually I prefer to use it for foundation. I love the finish it creates when I use this, it looks really natural and blends really nicely. I don't actually use this for blush, I think fingers work better if I'm honest. I also like this brush for powder because of the duo fibres.

My friend got me the a Benefit Fine One One for my birthday and it is so so so nice. It is a cheek and lip trio that has a highlight, a pink and a orange. The formula is basically like a cream blush but in stick form. Once blended out it looks so natural and it is really easy to use. Love it! 

I have never owned an eyebrow pencil so the Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil is my first one. I a really glad I chose this as it is really easy to use and is not too creamy or too hard. I have the darkest shade which is Black Brown and I think it is the best colour match as it is an ashy colour not a red toned brown.

Another favourite of mine in June was the Revlon Lacquer Balm in Vivacious. It is a bright pinky red. I like to put a lip balm on underneath and then apply this so it is more sheer and not so bold. I absolutely love the formula of these lip Lacquers and the colour range is lovely too.

I have always loved the Body Shop Body Butters, so when I found they had a sale on them I was super happy. I picked up this lemon scent for £5 (originally £13!!) and can I just say how I am a fan of lemons, the smell and the taste haha. This body butter smells incredible and I am sad because it's finished now. :(

I've never actually included a book favourite, but in June I was reading Looking For Alaska by John Green and it is so good! It is funny, sad and keeps you turning the pages. Although I do not think it is John Green's best book, I still think it is a great book.

TV show-wise I have been loving Pretty Little Liars. I have been watching it for over a year now and I think it just gets better and better. The first 2 seasons drag on a bit but once you get to season 3/4 it begins to get more thrilling and interesting. If you have not seen it it is like a teen mystery drama about a group of 4 girls who's friend went missing and they try to uncover what happened to her.

  3. I've always wanted to try the body butters for The Body Shop. I think I would also enjoy the lemon scent. I just posted my first post on my blog. Any critique would be greatly appreciated!

  4. I love Looking For Alaska! I really need to buy an eyebrow pencil because at the moment one of my eyebrows has a massive gap at the front because I got too into plucking them and yeah...so i really need to find a good eyebrow pencil, I've heard lots of good things about Rimmel one, but I don't know whether to get a pencil or a shadow to fill them in with!x
