June Favourites

It's monthly favourites time, woo-hoo! Since I haven't done a May favourites post there are quite a few products I'm going to talk about today. However, before I start rambling about last month's favourites I'd like to say thank you so much for the lovely comments on my last post! It really means a lot, and knowing that you guys seem to enjoy my blog is what keeps me going. So let's get crackin'!

Like I said, there have been quite a few bits and bobs I really enjoyed using the past two months. The Urban Decay Naked 3 palette as well as the Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation were featured in my April favourites already, but I just couldn't not mention them. We have had a couple of sunny days recently, which usually results in me having a sweaty face, that's why I needed something that I knew was seeing me through the day, and Healthy Mix did just that. It stays put for well over eight hours without going patchy, which is very rare for me. As for the Naked 3 palette, I still can't get enough of the beautiful rose gold shades. They also go well with another favourite of mine, the Maybelline 24h Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze. I really wish we got the US shades as there's not much choice in shades over here, but that doesn't make them less amazing. They are as good as my beloved MAC Paint Pots, and this particular shade would look beautiful on anyone. It's one of those one swipe wonders which saves you a good ten minutes in the mornings - winner!

On days I fancy a bit of a change foundation wise, I'll make sure to have my Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki brush and Rimmel Stay Matte powder at hand. They've become a staple in my handbag recently and I'd even go as far as saying that the brush is one of my favourite brushes of all time. It's that good!

As you might know if you've been following me for a while, I'm not too keen on Benefit. Most of their products aren't cutting it for me, but I do love their Box'o'Powders. Bella Bamba is a bright pinky-coral shade with a slight sheen to it, the perfect summer shade if you will. Lipstick-wise I've been loving the L'Oreal Collection Privee lipstick in Julianne's Nude, this shade literally goes with any makeup look! I don't even mind the Parma Violet scent and that is saying something. Last but by no means least is the Elemis Balancing Lime Blossom Cleanser. It was love at first use and it definitely does what it says on the tin. I can't wait to try more Elemis products, since this one has totally won me over! I'll try and get a review of this beaut up soon.

Which products have you been enjoying lately?
