June Favourites

See I told you I was no good at this monthly favourites thing. Just squeezing in, in the nick of time are June’s faves...

MAC Cream Color Base in Hush

This cream highlighter is like second skin! Hush is a gorgeous peachy pearl shade with a frost finish that adds a really pretty glow to the face. I use it as a highlighter on my cheek bones, brow bones, forehead and the bridge of my nose to create an all-over healthy glow. It’s the perfect partner to a cream blush if you really want your cheeks to shine. See my full review here
£14.50 Debenhams here

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil
“I knew you’d be mine sooner or later” she cackles to herself. If you read my post on No7 Luxurious Shower Oil you’ll know how much I love oils and how much I wanted this lovely. I finally have it and guess what.. yep, I love it. This shower oil transforms into a lavish, softening foam that leaves a satin-like softness all over your body. It smells divine and leaves my skin so soft I can skip the moisturiser.
£16.50/250ml Lookfantastic $24 Sephora
Maybelline Color Tatoo 24hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow
So good they deserve their own post (and they’ll get one soon)! These cream eyeshadows give vivid, intense metallic colour and are seriously long lasting with no creasing. Easy to apply with fingers, a quick swipe and you’re done. Think MAC Paint Pots but a lot cheaper. Barely Branded is a warm, creamy beige with a frosted, metallic finish. This one came in my US swap so I’m not sure if it’s available in the UK. Obviously I loved it so much I had to go out and buy another... On and On Bronze is a gorgeous metallic bronze with a hint a taupe and I’ve wore it on my eyes everyday this week... I’m addicted.

Vichy Normaderm Deep Clensening Purifying Gel
Vichy Normaderm Purifying Gel targets dilated or clogged pores, shine and  imperfections. Finally a face wash that lathers generously, removes my eye make up and doesn’t dry out my skin. Plus it has a handy punp, one to two pumps and I’m done. I know it’s pretty pricey for a face wash (it had a third off in Boots when I bought it) but it’s lasted an age – this one was purchased 12 weeks ago (as verified by instagram).
£10.50/200ml Boots here
Sinful Colors Nail Polish
Premium quality with a petite price tag. These £1.99 polishes knock the socks off pricier alternatives. I started with Be Happy (review here) and was so impressed I had to go back for Sweet Nothing and Island Coral.

MAC 109 small contour brush
This used to be my go to blush brush until it got cast aside for Real Techniques blush brush. Which let’s face it, is a fabulous brush with the softest bristles ever but I said it from the start, it’s too big for brush application... especially on my pea head! The 109 is small and perfectly formed for applying blush to the apples of the cheek. The bristles are soft and densely packed helping to pick up a good amount of product – swirl it on then blend upwards, job done! As for Real Techniques, I’m moving it to the bronzer/face powder department.
