June Favourites Part One: Beauty
Today I am sharing my Beauty favourites from June! At the end of exams I had a major beauty splurge in Mecca Maxima and in various drugstores, so I have heaps of new products but today I decided to share with you guys my favourites.
1. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
This gel like formula feels absolutely amazing on my skin and makes applying foundation so easy! And it really does erase my pores.
2. Maybelline Brow Drama Eyebrow Mascara in Medium Brown
I’m not really into super dramatic eyebrows, so I chose the lightest colour of this product. While I’m not sure if the darker colour would be suitable for those who love dramatic eyebrows despite the name of this product, I love how this brow mascara sets my eyebrows in place all day as well as giving them a natural looking tint.
3. Revlon Colourstay Foundation
I’ve been watching heaps of Kathleen Lights on youtube recently (if you haven’t heard of her and are a make-up junkie, you will fall in love with her channel) and she raves about this foundation being her favourite drug store foundation. And I can see why! With my skin drying out during these winter months, I chose one for dry to normal skin. This foundation doesn’t cling to my dry spots and builds up to a full coverage, it’s perfect for winter!
4. Nyx Baked Blush in Journey
These blushes are subtle but pretty and I like how they’re not too sparkly. The colour I got is a cooler pink so looks really pretty on the skin in winter!
5. Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese
These jumbo pencils have great pigmentation and look great as an eyeshadow base. I’m interested in trying this colour as a highlight too!
6. Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighter
I am in love with this highlight! It’s as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside (it’s packaging)! There are two colours inside including a pink and yellow based highlight. Both look so pretty on my skin and while this is the first highlighter I’ve bought, I definitely feel this is an amazing product!
7. Too Faced Natural Matte Palette
This is my FAVOURITE beauty item of the month. The colours of this palette are amazing and they blend better than a chocolate milkshake. It’s such a versatile palette as you are able to create soft looks for the day time and dramatic looks paired with a cat eye liner flick for a night look.
8. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Again this month I have been loving the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I included it again as I have been loving it even more since the formula has dried up slightly after opening it a month ago. It’s a lot easier to apply now and my eyelashes look longer and thicker for it. Does anyone else find their mascaras work better for them about a month after opening? Let me know in the comments below if you also have this dilemma!
I hope you all enjoyed this post, and look out for part two of my June favourites where I’ll be talking about my favourite accessories of the month!
