June Favourites

dfgfIts that time of the month again...where its all came to an end and I get to think about what Ive used a lot this month...It feels like onl last week I was doing my May Favourites, seriously I think times moving faster!

Firstly, as you can see and Ive said a million times, my camera just isnt playing nice anymore. Im in need of a new one, so if any of you have any recommendations for a good camera please let me know :)

Avon Supershock Mascara is my all time favourite mascara. I just opened a new tube this month and this reminded me how much I love it. Its perfect when brand new, which is good as I find most mascaras need to dry out a bit to be good enough which isnt good! It gives great volme and length, and is just lovely. I think its down to that crazy fat brush head. Iive become used to them now though and find it really easy to use. I cant see myself ever not having one in my collection.

MAC's Ravishing lipstick was a spur of the moment purchase, and it my favourite coral lipstick. Its so wearable for day to day and is so summery it makes me feel great when m wearing it. Its a cremesheen too so its really smooth and creamy. I dont feel the need to buy vegas volt or costa chic now I have this. This is by a mile my favourite summer/holiday lipstick!

MAC's Springsheen blush was an obvious choice after buying Ravishing. I needed a corally blush, and this one is perfect for a coral make-up look. Its a gorgeous subtle colour, easy to work with, or can be built up to be more intense. It has a gorgeous sheen to it that doesnt look too shimmery, kinda like if you brushed an MSF over your blush, that is the effect it gives. It means I rafrely have to use a highlight over the top which is nice. Again, one of my summer favourites and Ive used it almost every day this month.

Soap and Glory's Mist You Madly was something I wasnt expecting to love, but I added it to an order from ASOS on a whim. I have since used it daily. Its a gorgeous scent, Im no good at describing scents but this is gorgeous, quite light but also quite sensual. Ive had loads of compliments when Im wearing this and it lasts such a long time too which I wasnt expecting. Id quite like this in a smaller bottle to carry with me as this one is huge so I just use it before I leave the house. Otherwise though, is pretty amazing.

The Vitamin E Body Lotion from The Body Shop has been in my collection since my birthday in September, and yes Ive always liked it but recently Ive been using it loads. I find it nice to use instead of my body butters for mornings as it sinks in quite quickly and nicely which is good for when I need to get dressed and go out. I keep by butters for night time now and use this on mornings. It smells really clean and lovely and I wouldnt be without it now. I really like this and the Vitamin E Toner so I want to try some of their other Vitamin E products.

Ive worn Accessorize Aztec Nail Polish on my toes all month, and sometimes on my hands too. I love how it catches the sun when Im sunbathing and really suits the toes in the summer I think. Ive done a NOTD with it before which says a lot as I only ever do those when I really love my polish. I love the holographic effect of it, my little cousin was staring at it the other day on my toes and found it hilarious that different ways she stood she could see green, then pink, then purple, then gold...its really lovely.

Ive always loved Benefit's High Beam, Ive used my friends and families when Ive been at their place before nights out, and always wanted it but never wanted to part with my money when I always had other highlighter type products. I got this mini one in Glamour last month and Im so glad I did. Its raved about a lot and for good reason, it gives a gorgeous luminosity to the cheekbones, or anywhere you may wish to create a glowy highlight. You need the tiniest drop too and even this little bottle will last me ages. I use it every day now, its amazing.

Whats been your June favourites?


  1. Love your faves! I really want that Accessorize nail polish now, it looks fab! That MAC blush looks gorgeous aah I'm so tempted to place a MAC order now! :/


  2. some great favourites for this month! i have the mist you madly spray and it is definately my go-to spray - i love it, especially because it sprays quite a lot in one go (if that makes any sense.. :P) so its quick, as well as smelling gorgeous! xx
