June Favourites 2016 - The Balm Mary Lou Manizer, Wet N Wild Walking On Eggshells Eyeshadow Trio, Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Dream Huge, Models Prefer Professional Airbrush Brush, Klorane Dry Shampoo, Clarisonic Mia2, Scout Cosmetics Nail Polish in Never Tear Us Apart

June was a very busy month for me – I’ve been working 24/7 to get on top of uni work and blog posts so I’m ahead in time for my trip to NYC, I celebrated my 21st birthday a couple of days ago and I’ve also had a few incredible opportunities and events throughout the month for TBC. When it came to product favourites, it seems that this month was all about rediscovering bits and pieces in my stash as well as, of course, unearthing a few new discoveries.

The Balm Mary Lou Manizer –

It’s hard to miss the hype that surrounds this highlighter and although it’s been in my stash for a while, I always tended to overlook it. Lately I’ve been swishing it all over my cheekbones and I totally get it – it’s super glowy and golden while still being flattering on my pale skin.

Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Trio in Walking On Eggshells –

When it comes to simple, subtle eye makeup, it doesn’t get much easier than this. I’ve been obsessed with throwing the lightest shade all over the eye, patting on a bit of the lid shade and adding definition to the outer with the brown. In a matter of minutes, it makes me look so much more put together and awake and on some mornings, that’s really all that I’m looking for.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette –

On the mornings when I have a little more time on my hands I’ve been pulling out my Naked 3 palette. Until recently it was probably my least reached-for of the three but there’s something about the pinks and golds in this one that are speaking to me lately. My particular favourites lately have been Nooner & Liar.

Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Dream Huge* –

I’m sure it’s no surprise that my latest liquid lipstick obsession has made it into this month’s favourites. This mauve pink shade has been my favourite from the range so far, for sure. The unique applicator makes them easy to work with, even for liquid lipstick noobs like me, and the formula feels comfortable all day long.

Models Prefer Professional Airbrush Brush –

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I’ve had a few lightweight bases on rotation over the last couple of months but what I didn’t mention was the brush I’d been using to apply them all. Although I prefer a buffing brush or BeautyBlender for thicker bases, this one’s been a long-time favourite for whenever I reach for a more liquid-y formula.

Clarisonic Mia2* –

I’ve had the Clarisonic in my routine for a good seven or eight months now but it’s still impressing me every single day. A one minute cleanse leaves my skin feeling less congested and so much smoother. When hormonal breakouts start to appear, words can’t describe how thankful I am to have this beauty in my life.

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk* –

I’ve never quite understood the dry shampoo thing – it never actually got the job done on my hair before but now I’m beginning to think it was just the products I was using. It didn’t take long for Klorane’s dry shampoo to completely change my outlook. It’s been a lifesaver on days where I left it a little too long between washes, I’ve been well and truly converted.

Scout Cosmetics Nail Polish in Never Tear Us Apart* –

It’s well and truly winter here now so I’ve been getting into the spirit with a super vampy nail polish pick. I’ve been very impressed with the formula of this one but the colour is what really got my attention – it’s a stunning deep blackened-red, more unique than I intially expected, perfect for this very chilly weather.

  • So true about dry shampoo! I got the Klorane one recently and I really like it! The others I’ve tried in the past either smelt bad, made my hair feel dirtier or left a white cast. I didn’t get the hype! But the Klorane one just does the job! I’ve been using the Purasonic lately and it’s my first experience with a sonic cleansing brush and I do really like it! I do think it has helped decongest my skin πŸ™‚
