June Favourites


 
I never really do favourite posts - simply because if I like something I'll probably use it religiously and that would be pretty boring for you guys. This month I've found a couple of new things as well as old favourites so I thought I would show you what I've been loving in the month of June.

1 | Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water - I ended up buying this after watching Isabelle Bellis' 'How to Clean Your Face' video for Into The Gloss. I use it to prep the skin before cleansing but also to neutralise any tap water after cleansing. I would definitely recommended checking out the video.
 
2 | Garnier BB Cream for Oily Skin - Straight off the bat, I'm going to throw it out there... this stuff is awesome. I literally hated the original BB cream that Garnier brought out. It had no coverage, it turned me into an oil slick and to top it off it broke me out like a bitch. This on the other hand provides incredible coverage, makes my skin oil free but whilst looking glowy and so far it hasn't broke me out. I'm considering doing a full review on this so let me know if it's something you'd like to read.
 
3 | Superdrug Vitamin E SPF 15 Radiance Cream - I use this pretty much every morning as my moisturiser and it really does what it says on the tin. It's basically an exact dupe for MAC's Strobe Cream but for a fraction of the price.
 
4 | Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner - When I bought this I had little to no expectations. I was looking for a brown liquid eyeliner that I could take to Hurricane Festival and stumbled across this. It was only a few pounds so I wasn't too fussed if it turned out to be crap. To my surprise I really really rate this - it has awesome staying power (have a swatch in store and try to remove it from your hand!) and the colour pay off is brilliant too. Definitely worth checking out.
 
5 | Rodial Brazilian Tan Light - I got this as a freebie in Elle this month and it's fast becoming my favourite facial tanner. It's a tinted gel formula that gives a subtle glow instantly while developing into a deeper tan over the course of a few hours. I tend to apply it every couple of days before bed and wake up with a really subtle natural tan. You might still be able to get it and they also do it in a dark and clear version.
 
6 | Revlon Baby Stick in Pink Passion - This was another last minute grab when I was doing my festival shopping. It's a great multi use product for cheeks and lips and the colour is really nice too (swatches below). I'm not sure it lasts particularly well on me but it's so easy to carry around that I don't mind if I have to top it up throughout the day.
 
7 | Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Greenberry - I've been wearing this all month on my toes and it's lasted really well so far. I don't really have much to say on these polishes, I don't find them that different to any other Barry M polishes but I really love this colour for summer.
 
8 | YSL Faux Cils Shocking Mascara - I ended up picking this up in duty free on my way out of the UK. There was quite a good discount and I'd heard so many good things that I decided to take the plunge. This is hands down the best mascara I have ever used. I think I'm going to do a full review on this as it really does deserve a post of it's own. It genuinely does give shocking volume and length and the packaging is just beautiful. I think everyone should just go and buy it immediately.
 
9 | Topshop Lip Crayon Coy - I always whip this bad boy out in the summer months and this year has been no exception. I don't think Topshop have it in stock at the moment but I'm sure it will make an appearance again soon.
