June/July Favourites


I didn’t get a chance to do a Favourites post last month so these are some of my favourite things from the last 2 months! I decided to pick one item from the following categories:

Face| Stila Tinted Moisturiser – Fair 1

Eyes| MAC Vanilla Pigment

Lips| Rockalily Lipstick – Mae Hem

Hair| L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil

Nails| Barry M – Navy

The Stila Tinted Moisturiser has been a favourite whilst my skin’s been behaving itself, it offers good coverage though and I like the dewy finish it leaves on the skin. The shade is perfect for me too, it’s very pale and pink toned. I picked this up from TK Maxx last year I think for about a fiver and it’s lasted really well, you only need a tiny bit for your whole face. I think you can buy it from eBay in a range of shades and Poundland has some in at the moment but in darker shades.

MAC Vanilla pigment is one of my favourite every day eye shadows, it’s so easy to wear! It has a really pretty golden sheen and it blends really well. I often just sweep this over my eyelid and blend it out and pop some mascara on because I’m lazy in the mornings. It also makes a lovely highlight for nights out!

The Rockalily lipsticks are my favourites, they’ve stopped being made now but I picked this one up from a blog sale a couple of months ago. It’s a lovely orange-red shade, quite similar to MAC’s Lady Danger which is also a favourite. The lasting power of the Rockalily lipsticks is amazing, it lasts for ages!

The Extraordinary Oil is amazing! Amazing. I’ve not really dabbled in hair oils before but this one really makes a difference to the way my hair feels. I pop some on before I wash my hair as a treatment and leave it on for about 10 minutes, I also use it after I’ve washed my hair just on the ends.

A few years ago I only wore navy nail polish on my toes and red on my fingers (very patriotic!) so I’ve been re-embracing that lately and I’ve been really enjoying it. I don’t normally like metallic nail polishes but the Barry M Navy is an exception to that rule – the sheen it has makes it look navy and not black like other shades of navy can.

What have been your favourite products this month?

  5. I really want to try a tinted moisturizer, but I just can't find one that fits my shade...I'm too pale and in Portugal they are always to dark for me =X
