June Faves '15
I feel like its been a long time since I threw up a favourites so I thought I would. I stopped doing it for a few months because I wasn't buying much so there wasn't many new things that I could blog about but now its summer, there are a few newbies and some old things I'm loving again. First us, lets discuss L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara. I heard a few people saying that it had been discontinued and I knew that it had in America but I found it in Boots around 2 weeks ago so i'm not sure it has! I don't know why I hadn't tried it sooner, I love plastic bristles with a comb like effect on the head as it separates and lengthens my lashes so well. I have actually been using this over my Benefit Roller Lash and that is saying something!
Now its summer, glowing skin is a must! Milani blushers have to be my favourite bargain blushers and Dolce Pink is my go to summer blusher. It has a really soft pink colour so it gives you a really pretty glow and it has a really pretty shimmer in it which gives you a summery glow. I have quite oily skin but I still want that glow so I use shimmery blushers and a good highlighter to achieve it. Talking of highlighter, my LE Scotch on the Rocks Bobbi Brown Highlighter is the prettiest golden colour so with a tan, its a perfect combo and gives me the nicest shine on the cheek bones. I did a fuller review of the Bobbi Brown highlight which you can see here - excuse the over lightened picture, i'm not sure why I thought that was a good idea at the time!
So lately everyone has been on the Matte lip 'hype' and I was hesitant to explore until I was in the USA and bought a Milani lipstick with a matte finish. Needless to say, I was converted! I thought I would try Velvet Teddy because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about and I love it but I fancied something lighter for the summer months. Honeylove (I would say) is a lighter shade of Velvet Teddy and is a matte finish too so I was keen to buy it and try it out. I can firmly say that it is my new love and I will be buying back ups on back ups for months to come incase it ever gets discontinued! I did a review and some swatches of my three latest MAC lipstick purchases which you can see here.
I suffer from dark circles and concealers do cover them us a little but I need something to tone the darkness now and brighten the area up. I have had the Freedom Makeup Correct and Conceal palette for around a month now and I am obsessed. I like that it doesn't make the finish of my makeup weird and just adds that extra brightness to my eye area to avoid me looking tired and like a 40 year old!
Last but of course not least, my Lorac Pro Palette has been my go to palette since I got back from America. I have never felt shadows that are so creamy but are still powders, I love them so much! All the colours are so blendable and they are all great colours for day time and night time. I now need all the Lorac shadows possible!
That's a round up of my June favourites, what are yours?!
