Monthly Favourites: June 2017

Favourites videos and posts are our favourite to watch, the beginning of the month is blogger heaven! Checking out what people have been loving. So we decided we would start doing them too!

This post will show you what products we were loving in the month of June. These are the products we reached for or were obsessed with throughout the month. Let us know what your current favourites are! We love trying out your recommendations.

Without further ado, let’s get stuck into it..

Kat vod D shade and light eye palette

M got me this for my birthday last year and I was in such awe of its beauty that I have neglected it – I just didn’t want to disturb the beauty! But Allana Davison (check out her YouTube channel, we are obsessed and want to be her best friend) inspired me to get creative and use these amazing shadows.

I don’t have a bad thing to say about this palette. If you are a fan of matte shadows then don’t even think about it, just add to cart and check this baby out. You need this.

mac mineralize concealer in nw15

I rediscovered this concealer early in June and for the life of me I cannot remember why I ever moved away from using it! Amazing coverage and yet still light weight. The colour is amazing for highlighting my super-pale complexion. If you are like me and crease like a mo-fo under your eyes but are still after some coverage, I’d definitely recommend this concealer.

I don’t wear this on the daily, but for special occasions or when I want to look a bit more put together this is what I have been reaching for recently.

Rimmel lasting finish lipstick by kate moss in my nude

I don’t usually wear lipstick on the daily, but that has all changed with this lipstick.  This is actually the perfect nude for my skin tone.  It’s nothing super obvious, it just makes me look and feel put together. My lips but better, if you will.

I am so impressed by the quality of this lipstick at such an amazing price! It lasts amazingly well and feels comfortable and moisturising on the lips. Can’t recommend it enough, I will be buying up on the other shades in this collection.

Physicians formula butter bronzer in murumuru

It took us a very long time to get our hands on this bronzer. It is always out of stock on the Priceline website, so when we finally got it we were far too excited. Kathleen Lights (another of our YouTube loves) raves about this bronzer in every one of her drugstore favourites, and I can see why. It is a beautiful soft bronze. If you are medium-dark skintone, I don’t think this will work on you. But for me and my paler-than-snow skin it is the perfect everyday bronzer.

Oh and it smells like coconuts, so in this freezing Tassie winter I can pretend I’m on a tropical island and I’m okay with that.

innoxa thirsty skin day & night crème

I am so glad I picked this up when it was on sale on the Priceline website. It is amazing! It’s got the most unique consistency, somewhere between a cream and a gel, it almost feels like water. Whatever they have going on in here it works for my dry skin and I am loving it. Add a drop of facial oil in and it amps it up to 11. I will definitely be repurchasing this when I run out. My new favourite moisturiser? Might well be.

I’ll be doing a full Innoxa Skincare review soon! Keep an eye out.

colourpop super shock shadow in wattles

I won’t lie, I only bought this shadow because of Kathleen Lights. Like so many other of her recommendations this eye shadow did not disappoint.  I love wearing this by itself all over the lid and even through the crease, as my everyday look. It’s a beautiful satin shade, meaning it isn’t too shimmery but still has a pretty sheen.  I think this would work well with all eye colours! I have been complimented on it every time I’ve worn it. Big thumbs up.

Rimmel #insta fix & go 2 in 1 primer & setting spray

This was a last minute purchase when I realised I’d run out of my Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray and I had a ball the next day.  I use this throughout my makeup application to settle powders and afterwards as a setting spray.  I have a drier skin type and it works well for me, but I don’t think that oily skinned girls would enjoy this. Alcohol isn’t a main ingredient so it’s not going to be the best setting spray for oily skin but works fantastically to settle makeup into my dry skin.

keune care vital nutrition shampoo and conditioner

I was sent this about a month ago and have been using it ever since. My (normally dry and brittle) hair has been feeling increasingly hydrated and silky silky smooth. It is expensive but with how my hair has been looking and feeling using these products I do think I’ll be purchasing in the future.

smashbox step-by-step contour palette

This palette is a couple of years old and, if I’m honest, once I got the Kat Von D Shade & Light contour palette I definitely neglected this. However, having rediscovered it this month I’ve fallen in love with this formula and compact size. The shades work perfectly for my skin tone, but its a bit of a downer that they don’t have a range of shades for lighter and darker skintones. However, if you’re semi-pale like me (NC15-NC20 in MAC) then you will love this.
