June Favourites

Hi guys, hope you're having a good week! Anyone else in England angry at the sun? Just stay out! Anyway onto last months favourites...

Firstly we have the L'oreal Glam Bronze bronzer in 06 Golden Bronze (£7.99 here) I love this bronzer as the colour isn't too orange or muddy, I also find it really hard to put too much on as it's easily blendable. There is a slightly shimmer which gives a slight glow but it's not glittery or greasy looking. Revlon Photoready 3D Volume in black (£10.99 herewhich is a great everyday mascara, it really lengthens and separates. It can easily be layered to create more volume as well! L'oreal True Match Touche Magique in Rose Beige (£8.19 here) is my current go to undereye concealer. It's basically L'oreal's version of the YSL Touche Eclait but a lot cheaper. Although I'm not sure what the difference is between the Touche Magique and Lumi Magique apart from the latter only comes in two shades and has much prettier rose gold packaging! 

Next we have two foundations which says a lot for the state of my complexion! The first is the L'oreal Lumi Magique Light Reflection Foundation in R/C/K1 Rose Pearl (£10.99 here) which I find gives great coverage, a nice glow but doesn't cling to my dry patches which a lot of foundations do. It also has great lasting power which I wasn't expecting when I picked it up! When I'm going for heavy coverage and a really long lasting look, like on a night out, I opt for the Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation in Warm Almond 45 (£11.99 here). I really like the way this foundation sits and looks on my skin which is unusual for a long lasting foundation, my dry skin normally looks flaky and horrible! The shade I have is a tad a pale so I can't wear it when I fake tan but the shade up was too dark which was unfortunate.

Speaking of fake tan! Now that summer is (apparently) here I have been fake tanning quite regularly because I am blindingly pale. My favourite is the St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse in Medium (£4.99 here) as it's hard to go wrong with this and a tanning mitt. I'm normally in a rush so I don't have time to faff about with tanning, with this mousse I can quickly apply it just before I leave if I need to! It does however look better after a few hours when it has developed. (I realised this after putting on too many layers on one leg and then when the tan developed it was super dark compared to the other leg! Oops!) The day before I tan I like to exfoliate and shave my legs if possible and to rehydrate my body after I use the Vaseline Spray and Go Body moisturiser in Cocoa Radiant (£4.99 here). This body lotion is super quick and easy to apply as well as drying super fast without leaving a greasy layer on the skin. Great for us rushed girls!

Well that's all my favourites for the month of June, what are yours?
