June favourites

For the month of June, I've had a few favourites. I've especially been loving new lipsticks and my Clarin's face tanner. I don't like to wear much makeup in the summertime, so my favourites have been more based on skincare and lips.

Liz Earl hot cloth cleanser - I love love love this cleanser. It smells so lovely and is the perfect texture for my skin, a nice, fairly thick cream. It completely removes my makeup and the cloth that comes with the cleanser very gently exfoliates the skin, leaving it smooth and soft after use.

St Ives apricot scrub - This scrub is so pleasant to use. The exfoliant grains aren't too big or too small, making it perfect for a good but not too vigorous scrub, leaving the skin silky smooth after use. The smell is fairly strong but not in any way offensive. I use this about 2 - 3 times a week, and I honestly notice a difference after using it, as my skin does appear clearer.

La Roche-Posay eye makeup remover - This eye makeup remover is perfect for those with sensitive eyes. My eyes aren't that sensitive, but I like to use more gentle eye makeup removers just because I don't want to be using strong stuff on my eyes. I used to think eye makeup removers for sensitive eyes wouldn't really work at getting all the makeup off, but don't be fooled. This works perfectly at getting rid of even the toughest of mascaras. 

Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black mascara - This mascara is perfect for me. I really don't like clumpy lashes at all and I'm not looking for super lengthening mascara either, I just want a bit of volume and curl and this is perfect. It doesn't run at all during the day and doesn't clump, although it does have quite a thick consistency. I'll be repurchasing this for a while. 

Dolce & Gabbana the one perfume - I got this perfume for my birthday back in February. Before getting it, I was constantly spraying it in any perfume shop I was in. I use this perfume every single day and I will never tire of it, I love it so much. It's a fairly sweet perfume, but not overly sweet or sickly because I can't stand perfumes that are too sweet. I am terrible at describing scents so this is how the perfume shop describes the scent:"The fragrance features top notes of mandarin and peach that leads into a heart of jasmine and ends with a base of vanilla, amber and musk. The One for Her is a warm, oriental floral with modern sensuality. It's a fragrance with a strong personality and a contrasting golden sweetness. Created for the ultimate diva, the one is at once tempting, modern and glamorous, embracing a touch of classicism."

Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster - I'm all for a natural tan, but when the weather in the UK doesn't allow me to have that (which is most of the time) this is a life saver. I hate looking pale, simply because I think I personally look better with a tan, so this has been such a nice product to use. It gives such a natural looking glow, it's in no way orange and it is just perfect for when the sun doesn't shine. Simply mix a drop or two in with your moisturiser and you're good to go.

Maybelline lipstick in 916 Neon Red - I have been looking for the perfect red/orange lipstick for so long and this is it. This lipstick is really creamy and very pigmented, giving me the perfect vibrant coraly colour. This colour is perfect for this time of year as it's so bright and I tend to wear a lot of white so it really compliments my ourtifts.

Clarins lipstick in 107 Tea Rose - Oh my gosh, I cannot describe how much I love this lipstick. The picture shoes this lipstick as being a lot darker than it actually is. This is my everyday lipstick because I love it so much. The colour compliments any outfit and any skintone. It's slightly darker and more pinky purple than a nude, but it's not in any way a vibrant or dark colour, making it extremely wearable and perfect for any occasion. Love. 

Topshop sunglasses - Last but not least, I have been wearing these sunglasses to death for the past few months. I think they are so cute and the shape is the perfect shape for my face. I love the stripy pattern and the slight orange colour to the frames. I just adore these sunglasses. 

What have you been loving this month?
