Monthly Favourites - June

Hey Guys, 

I can't believe it's the middle of June already! I planned to write this post earlier on in the month, however thinking about it now, I think this time is better as I can properly choose the products that I'm loving so much from the month as a whole! Anyway, I've decided to do a monthly favourites post, because I really want to show you all of the amazing products I've been using constantly through June so far! 

My first product is the Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation, which I have in the colour/shade 140. I only purchased this foundation last month, after reading so many amazing reviews about it. I'm so impressed with this foundation, it's incredible coverage and lasts all day too. 

As you can see, the consistency is nice and light, I hate it when a foundation is really thick and heavy.  This foundation also feels really nice to wear too, you don't find yourself wanting to remove your make-up after half a day like some foundations can do! I really find this foundation is perfect for all day and I highly recommend it! You can purchase this foundation here!

Next up we have the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, which I have in the shade Medium Ginger. This concealer is really really good for your T-Zone. I find myself using it more here than under my eyes, as I find that my under-eyes are often in need of something a little stranger. 

This concealer is perfect for covering up blemashes, spots and so on, and it gives you a beautiful glow too. I love Nars products, they always seem to work really well and I find them so much value for money! You can find this Nars concealer here.

My next favourite is something I have actually already gone through two palettes of. The Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette. I love this product with all of my heart. It's the most beautiful, cute and handy palette and I can't wait to stock up on another, as I get so scared this one will run out before I do! 

Just look at how beautiful the colours are. So first we have the Bronzer, which is a beautiful browny/bronze. Then you have your Highlighter which is such a fabulous glimmer highlight, and then finally the cute Blush which is an amazing coral colour. 

I just can't get enough of this palette. It really is amazing, and it works so well as either 3 different products, or even one swipe of the brush along all three to create a different kind of powder for your cheeks. This palette is such a great buy as you're able to multitask with one cute palette! I have this palette in the shade Streak. 

You can purchase this gorgeous little palette here ...

My next favourite is again, one that I have been using for a while now. However, I do find myself using this product more in the summertime. Hoola by Benefit is just the best bronzing powder I've ever owned. It's one that I will always have close by, and it's even perfect for those 'no make-up days' when you just need a little glow. 

I haven't tried any of Benefits other powders, but I am totally sold on this one, so I should probably have a look at the others in the near future! The way this bronzer looks on the cheeks is just incredible, you gain such a healthy glow and beautiful tan to the skin, and I just love the packaging too! The fact that you get a cute little brush with this product is also a win win situation! You can find Hoola here!

I can't even find the words to describe this highlighter. I was gifted this by one of my best friends and I was so overwhelmed when she gave it to me. I've never owned any Burberry beauty products before, but after having this highlight in my collection, I can safely say I will be purchasing from Burberry again very, very soon. 

This highlight is the most incredibly gorgeous highlight I have ever seen. First let me start by saying that the packaging is so elegant and luxurious I didn't even want to use it. When I did finally open it however, I couldn't believe how shimmery and perfect the product was. This highlight sits so beautifully on your cheek bones and creates the ultimate glow. I also loved that this product came with a brush and a pouch to keep it safe. 

I officially love Burberry beauty products and cannot wait to add to my collection. You can find this beautiful highlight here 

Moving onto eye products, I have been loving this MAC Upward Lash Mascara. It's the very first MAC Mascara I have owned and it's amazing. I find the product to be quite thick and enhancing, which is perfect for nights out or long wear. 

The brush applicator is really small and neat, which is perfect for focusing on individual sections of your eye lashes. I love the fact that you get a beautiful, bold look and the product stays on for such a long time. This MAC Mascara can be purchased here...

I purchased my MAC Mascara in Upward Black, which is one of the darkest colours. It really makes my eyes look bright and lashes look long and extended! 

This next product that I have recently (this week) purchased is the Mac, Caitlyn Jenner limited online edition lipstick! I am SO happy to have got my hands on this beauty. As soon as I saw it was online only I knew I had to get it. There weren't really any excuses! I was so so happy when the product arrived, as the colour was even more beautiful that it looked online. 

The lipstick is called 'Finally Free', which I also thought was beautiful. I'm a huge fan of the Kardashian/Jenner clan and I am so happy Caitlyn is finally confident and happy in her own skin! I loved the idea of this lipstick, and then I was so happy when it arrived! 

The lipstick is a lovely rose red tone, which looks beautiful for both day and evening occasions. It works really well for everyday, or dressed up too! This product can be purchased online only, here 

Finally I have this Barry M Nail Polish. This Gelly Hi Shine polish is incredible. I found it dried within minutes and looked so shiny and gel-like instantly. I purchased this varnish in Pomegranet as it's such a fun, summery colour! You can find this summery varnish here 

I wanted to add this final item to my list, as it's something I've found myself using more since the sun started to shine! I love my Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb perfume. I actually got it for Christmas, but it's one I've been using more recently. It's such a beautiful scent, and is great for everyday use as well as special occasions. I also love the bottle, it's so pretty and well designed which I always look for in a perfume. You can purchase your own Flowerbomb here! 

Thank you for reading, I hope you liked my favourites this month!
