June Favourites

It’s that time of the month again where I dig through all my favourite beauty products used within the month of June.

I apologise that I am a week or two late with this post (or with any or my other posts) I have been a little off lately but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of blogging soon xx.

Napoleon Perdis Mosaic Bronzing Powder

An oldie but a goodie, this matte bronzer has made it’s way into my everyday makeup routine as I use it to lightly dust all over for a sun kissed glow – great for the face and neck.

Inglot Freedom System Quad Palette

With the Inglot Freedom System you can create your own palettes from a vast collection of colourful face products. I chose these colours as they are my perfect everyday lid, crease, highlight and liner colours and are richly pigmented and smooth and buttery to apply, for more information on my selected colours see my post I HEART Inglot.

Benefit Stay Don’t Stray 360 Eye Primer

Works a treat on the lids as an eye primer but this month I have been loving Stay Don’t Stray as a primer for my under eyes and on troublesome areas to ensure my concealer applies smoothly and covers those nasty imperfections all day.

Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin

Applies as a gorgeous pinky gold, this little magic primer potion intensifies eye shadow colour and ensures shadow stays put all day (or night) with no creases.  

NP Set Lip Gloss Compact in Vanuatu

A beautiful glossy peach, perfect to top off any everyday natural makeup look.

MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel

I’m only new to the illuminator craze but I’m now totally hooked. I love pink rebel as gives a nice pinky gold glow when applied to highlight areas (cheek bones, brow bone and bridge of nose).

Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat

My O.P.I Top Coat was on its way out and I have read great things about Mega Shine and have not been disappointment. Mega Shine speeds up drying time and allows polish to last chip free for days while giving a beautiful clear shine and it’s a cheaper alternative to O.P.I. – Love it.  

O.P.I in Russian Navy

Really loving dark nail polishes in these cooler months and this colour is a deep navy with shimmers of purple and goes so well with my winter wardrobe.

St. Ives Apricot Scrub in Invigorating

I have been using this scrub since forever and I love it as it’s a quite gritty scrub, great for both face and body and provides a noticeable smooth result.

Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Beach Plum

This month I have been slowly introducing colour into my everyday eye looks. I particularly love these two colour combinations – the sandy gold really makes the plum pop.

(Top of the palette is Blushing Blush Powder in Smouldering Plum)

Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aide

My saviour against winter chapped lips! Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aide provides an instant moisturising effect and smells of lemon tarts – delish!


  1. That Inglot palette is high on my wish list ah! Loving your other favorites too!

  2. Wonderful favorites - I haven't heard of many of them but I'm tempted to do the research :)
