June was a quick month, but it was a lovely sunny one. I love rounding up my most used & loved products from the month and June’s picks are all new mentions which have all grown to be firm favourites.
Rimmel Glam Eyes in Brixton Brown – I love this small palette, you get 5 really wearable shades. They’re all pigmented and very easy to work with, I do like to wear a primer under them just so they don’t crease. I don’t normally wear a smoky eye & I still need a little more practise but I’m loving using this to experiment. It has a handy step by step guide on the back which I follow (smoky eye for dummies). I do really love the red toned copper colour in the centre the most, its gorgeous to wear it alone all over the lid.
Crazy Rumors Black Cherry Lip Balm* OMG this smells so good, not the artificially sweet but actually of cherries all fruity and so good. Not only does it smell incredible but it is very hydrating and leaves my lips feeling soft and I don’t have to reapply it as much as I’d like to (as it keeps my lips hydrated for hours). These Crazy Rumor lip balms come in so many flavours all of which sound wonderful & obviously I need them ALL!
Collection Cream Puff Lip Cream – I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to jump on this band wagon! I finally bought one & went for the Cotton Candy shade which is a very pretty sweet bubblegum pink. Its applies nice and creamy on the lips & feels moisturising & it dries to a velvet matte finish. Despite this being a matte finish it doesn’t feel drying at all & wears off the lips evenly after a few hours. Its pretty, cheap & it smells so good! Thats 3 reasons you should buy it, if you haven’t already.
Clarins Instant Light Radiance Boosting Complexion Base – I bought this a couple of months ago & I like to wear it either under my foundation to perk my skin up or I mix it in with my foundation for an extra reflective boost. This gives me a healthy glow without being shimmery, it evens out my skin tone and hides imperfections. I have the shade Champagne 02 & its very good at dulling the redness in my skin. I find it very lightweight & doesn’t feel greasy on the skin at all, it just gives you a lovely fresh healthy finish. It makes a really nice base to apply your foundation too & just keeps your complexion looking fresh & bright.
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist* – It was my husband that first introduced me to Jurlique about 6 years ago after he purchased some of their hand creams for me as a gift from SPACE NK & I have grown to love the brand ever since, This Rosewater face mist has been a Summer saviour. Its so refreshing in the heat, I have been keeping it in the fridge for an extra cooling treat. Not only is this refreshing but its very hydrating, calming and is rich in antioxidants too. So its very much a skin treat. I love using it after cleansing but also throughout the day as a refreshing skin boost.
Clarins Energizer Emulsion – Since I sold my car a few months ago I have been doing 100% more walking & my legs are often so achy at night, I have been applying this lotion when they feel tired & this soothes them. It contains Camomile, Basil, Sage and Cypress – so calming, soothing & uplifting for your tired body. It feels cooling on the skin when you apply it & by morning my legs are ready for the day. I’ve read that this also great for tired feet, so will be applying it to my feet too.
