June Favourites

Hello ladies!

I cant quite believe its July already! The year seems to be flying by! I thought i would show you some of the products that i have been loving through the month of June. I must admit, i found it quite hard picking products this month, not that i dont love the ones i have chosen, but my makeup routine stays the same pretty much day in day out and i havent really bought any new goodies recently! 
♥ Illamasqua Bronzer in 'Burnish' ♥
This bronzer reminds me of NARS Laguna, although slightly cheaper and much nicer packaging in my opinion. The colour is not orange and it has a slight shimmer which isnt too obvious. Love the glow that this gives me skin & i have been using it daily.
♥ Benefit Box Blush in 'Bella Bamba' ♥
A new addition to my make up collection and a good one at that! I have lusted after this blush for a while and it wasnt until ASOS had 20% off selected brands that i picked this up. It has some gold shimmer, which in blushes i love and is the most gorgeous pinky peach shade. Absolute summer must have! 
♥ MAC Lipstick in 'Creme Cup' ♥
This is definitely an oldie but a goodie, unfortunately this lipstick snapped straight from the tube after using it only a couple of times, hence why it is housed in this not so pretty pot! It is for that reason that i seem to forget about it, although it has been my go to lipstick for the past few weeks as the colour is just gorgeous, and not too much to wear everyday.
♥ Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in No 6 ♥
This is the foundation i have been wearing the past week or so and i must say i really like it. I was sent sample shades 4, 6 & 7 and the number 6 which is neutral is perfect for my skintone at the minute. Think i will have to pick up a full size bottle of this, it lasts really well on my skin & i love the finish it gives!
♥ Rimmel Day 2 Night mascara ♥
I first mentioned this mascara in this post and have used it absolutely everyday since without fail. It is honestly my new favourite! It gives so much length and volume to my lashes without being too wet or clumpy! I will definitely repurhcase this when i run out! My new holy grail mascara i think!
♥ Swatches ♥
 
So thats it for this month ladies, quite short and sweet! 

What are your favourites from the past month?

  26. I love Bella Bamba too! I've used Sugarbomb and Coralista before but like Bella more I think. Am a sucker for Benefit anyway. I bought 2 copies of this months Glamour for the free cheek stain sample sizes ha ha! Just reminded myself I was supposed to blog about that!
