June Favourites

Wednesday, 3 July 2013

Hi everyone! I thought this month I would do something a little different for my blog and post a monthly favourites. I don't tend to do these as regularly as I don't seem to have stand out products every single month but this month in particular I have noticed a few products that I've used over and over that I wanted to share with you all.

L-R MAC Syrup, BECCA Luminous Skin Tint, Topshop Orion Trio, & Other Stories Foundation in 2, MAC Royal Sunset.

Starting with make up the first thing I have been loving this month is this Topshop Eyeshadow Trio in Orion. I hadn't actually heard anyone mention this before I bought it but whilst doing some online shopping a while ago I spotted it and knew it had to be mine. It has three very pigmented, metallic shades including a champagne, a golden taupe and a deep cranberry toned purple which are my favourite kinds of shades to wear and I've worn it pretty consistently all month. 
Next is my favourite blush of the month, MAC Royal Sunset from the All About Orange collection. I may have to do a full review of this as I think it may have beaten the now discontinued MAC Coygirl to the favourite blush spot. I've literally worn it every day since I got it and I'm in love with it! 
Lipstick wise I've loved MAC Syrup, a nice mauvy toned neutral. This is definitely my favourite everyday lipstick and better still I didn't pay for it as I got it through back to MAC. It's a lustre finish so it's very light and sheer on the lips, perfect for summer.
For my base, I've really enjoyed using the BECCA Luminous Skin Tint in Porcelain (SPF 25+) on my days off as an extremely light, sheer foundation just to even out my skin tone. It's such a beautiful luminous finish without making me oily and is pretty much undetectable on the skin due to how sheer it is but I love it. On longer days such as ones where I'm working, I've enjoyed using the & Other Stories All Day Perfecting Foundation (SPF 15). I've not heard anything about this either and picked it up on a complete whim but it's amazing! It lasts far longer than any other foundation has on my skin whilst looking pretty natural and not overly matte. I've also loved my Benefit Porefessional as always for keeping my make up looking fresh for longer, a full review can be found here.
Finally for makeup, Lo'real Voluminous Mascara has been great for holding a curl in my lashes. I have naturally very long but completely straight lashes so anything that slightly curls them goes down very well with me!

L - R TRESemme Divine Definition Spray, The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream, Bumble and Bumble Bb Texture Creme, Topshop AWOL, Stella Summer Rose.

Non make up wise I have been loving wavy, beachy hair and for this the combination of the TRESemme Divine Definition Spray and the Bumble & Bumble Bb Texture Creme have been amazing. I firstly use the Bumble and Bumble when my hair is wet by scrunching it into the ends of my hair then use the spray after my hair is styled to make my hair more voluminous and a bit messier and find it works really well to make my hair a little more wavy than it naturally would be. 
In terms of my nails I haven't been able to take Topshop AWOL off them! This colour is so amazing and alongside my all time favourite Celestial I've never had so many compliments on my nail colour. It's an amazing bright cobalt blue and the finish of Topshop polishes are always super shiny and long lasting.
For perfume I've been using my Stella Summer Rose perfume all month. As the name suggests it's a beautiful floral scent that I find so pretty on any summer occasion, plus I adore the bottle.
Finally to help keep my skin matte all day I've used The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream. This stuff is amazing, I've never found a moisturizer that leaves my skin less oily. Unfortunately, the ingredients aren't the most amazing with a few parabens lurking around and the lack of SPF means you do need to add one before or after but for the purpose of mattifying, I cannot fault it.

In terms of a couple of random favourites, I've rekindled my love for The OC. I was once obsessed with this show (and Seth Cohen) and rewatching the series has definitely reignited my love for the programme (and Seth Cohen again). Music wise I'd definitely recommend checking out OneRepublic and Kodaline's new albums as they are both incredible bands and I cannot stop obsessing over either!

Sorry for the incredibly long post everyone, please let me know what your favourites were this month too! Hope you all had a good June! :)
