June Favourites

I can't believe we are already at the end of june! Seems crazy that we're already in summer, and before we know it we'll be in Autumn freezing cold and complaining... this year is going far too quickly!

My favourites have changed a little bit, and you'll probably see most products that I've done past reviews on. So, let's get into it!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll probably know I've done a past review here where I go into more detail. I went through a phase where I didn't actually like it because my skin was breaking out bad and so I put it down to this. A couple of months on, my skin is much better and I've been turning to this as an everyday quick go to foundation and it's not broke me out, phew! It's pretty pale and I'd say a good match to a porcelain fair skin (don't you find a lot of other brands shade of porcelain is pretty dark?!) but I don't use it when I have fake tan on obviously. I really like the coverage and the effect it gives. Read my post on it for more information :)

I mentioned this in my recent haul post but didn't go into much detail as I hadn't got a recent feel for it. I used to use this all the time when I was about 16 and absolutely loved it. Obviously since then I've used more mascara's and know what I like and what I don't like. I forgot how cakey it can make your lashes if it's not used correctly and felt disappointed when I initially tried it when I re purchased it. Since then I've been using it after I use my Rimmel scandaleyes mascara and it works perfectly! I use it to thicken my lashes but you do have to be careful not to create a spider effect. I think it's worth buying if you tend to use multiple mascaras.

I was pretty excited to get my hands on these, not only because they're so hard to come by in the UK but I've also heard amazing reviews on them! I have an account with Very, and found them on there for £10.. which isn't bad considering the quality and you're also getting two when only one bought separately would probably come to £10 anyway. I really like them so far, I use the concealer wand for under my eyes and the pot for cleaning up around my brows and for blemishes. They're both very creamy too which is a massive plus. I'll be doing a review soon!

I absolutely love this tanner and won't use anything else now, you can find a review here. I recently found it in pound stretcher for £2 which is 99p less than what I got mine for but either way it's a bargain and the quality is amazing, as is the outcome from using it!  

Not much I can say apart from it's a good dry shampoo... it does what it's meant to and the hint of colour stops you from getting that ghastly white powder on your hair! It's the only one I will use now!

I did a review on this a few months ago and I hated it! It wasn't what I was used to when it came to hair oils but this month it's all I've used! I've been using this every time after I wash my hair to put moisture back into my ends and I also use it after styling to tame frizz. It does feel a bit strange, almost like alcohol and smells like it too but nonetheless it does well. They have a few different types of Extraordinary oils, this one has UV filter for coloured hair, which I need since my hair is dyed red!

Primark Eyelashes in Sultry £1

I love primark lashes! If I'm on a budget or broke but need me some glamorous lashes, I'll pop into primark and pick these up. I don't really tend to buy any of the other styles, I tend to like these sort of wispy lashes. Their durability are really good considering it's from Primark. Massive thumbs up.

I love lip tints! I tend to opt for these for during the day and even for clubbing as it doesn't budge whilst I'm drinking. If I wear lipstick, it always ends up on my chin and it's pretty annoying so I always keep one of these on me even if I am using lipstick at the beginning of the night. I own two of the shades which are Blushing and Kiss me. I really want to find a true red one! They don't last all day and gradually fade from your lip leaving an outline which doesn't look really obvious. The balm at the end of the tint helps since the tint can be a bit dry, the balm gives a lovely glossy look. 

Urban Decay Good for one fare eye shadow in Midnight Cowboy £14.00

I've owned this eye shadow for years and as far as I know it's out of stock on the Urban decay website but you can find it here . I've been using this mainly on nights out as it's VERY glittery and would look a bit Edward Cullen ish if worn in the day. It has a lovely beige colour with silver and gold flecks of glitter which look amazing placed in the centre of the lid on almost any eye look. 

As you can probably guess, I'm a big fan of MUA products and think their £1 shadows are amazing for the quality and pigmentation. I use this shade 17 all over my lid. It looks a bit brown in the picture and in the pan but on the skin it transfers as a lovely neutral beige. It's completely matte too and is perfect for everyday wear and as a base for other eye looks.

Isn't the shade pretty? It's a lovely pink/peach lightweight cream to powder blush and looks amazing on fair and tan skin tones. I'm not sure how well it would transfer on darker skin tones as it's pretty lightweight and doesn't have a harsh pigmentation like you'd think it would. I like using this on its own during the day, and then using it at night under my Dainty doll blusher for more impact. I can't wait to try the other shades from the topshop blush collection

Have you tried any of these favourites?

1.Doing my make up whilst watching one of my favourite films 2. night out with my best friend and work friends! 3. Cheeky selfie before a night out last week! 4. my ultimate favourite food everrrr! 

I'm back! finally!

I know I've been gone for a while (approx 4 weeks) but I have a good (ish) reason as to why I haven't been blogging. I moved house! It's been so stressful moving, with trying to make the house a home and not to mention finally setting up the internet so I could get back to what I enjoy most, and that's writing on here. I've been so lost/bored without my blog, it's been pretty painful! Thankfully I'm back online and able to do blogging more often now, especially now I'm finished at college! yay! 

I also desperately need to update my music library.... eek! Amazing how much we depend on  the internet these days!

Hope everyone is doing well, stay tuned for more posts this week ladies! It's good to be back :)!
