Hi lovelies hope you are all doing well. I cannot believe we are only in the month of june and halfway through the year. I have officially finished my first year at university and the summer is a well deserved break!! Hopefully booking a holiday at some point whilst i have this time off. Plenty of relaxing is needed!! If you havent read my previous post im also on a abit of a lifestyle change at the moment eating healthy and exercising. Maybe updates on my progress soon?
Okay so onto my monthly faves. I only have 5 products that i have been using constantly as ive been trying to let my skin breathe abit and im trialing new skincare for my blemished prone skin.
First up is this gorgeous plum colour lipstick 'plum perfection' from Collection (2000). I brought this about a year ago i think and ive just been reaching for this quite about this month. To be honest it is a more winter colour but i really think it suits my skin tone and ive not been much for going crazy on makeup this month so its just been nice to have a pop of colour on the lips.
Next is the MUA mascara which i have reviewed in full before here. This mascara is abit dry but the wand itself just gives a very natural look to the lashes so effortlessly. Id say that if it wasnt as drying it would be amazing and it does such a good job seperating all of the lashes equally. I have been loving the natural look too this month so its been right up my street.
The Revlon photoready cream blusher in 'flushed' is the most prettiest colour on the apples of your cheek. Teamed up with the real techniques stippling brush its the perfect combo. I love wearing this blusher as its not drying and it stays on for a good while too. It definately makes me feel more summer ready wearing this beauty!!
As i have said i am trialing new blemish products for my skin and i brought the Clinique ant blemish foundation '01' earlier this month. I think its a really good foundation and covers blemishes up so well and has a good medium coverage. The only issue i have is that it does tend to stick about to dry skin. The colour is the perfect match as i am so pale right now. I think i will carry on using this more for this month to be able to give a better review but so far im really liking this foundation.
Last of all is the Body Shop Vitamin C microdermabrasion. Im a huge skincare junkie i admit and for me that is the one thing i enjoy is buying new skin products. I have heard alot about microdermabrasion and its basically a more in depth exfoliation. This one contains really fine beads that help to slough dead skin. Using it a maximum of twice a week it helps to reduce scars and rid of dry skin. Its worked wonders on my skin and the smell is so fruity and fresh. Its a lovely product if you are after abit more of a thorough exfoliation.
What have been your monthly faves this month? :)
