♡ June FavoritesJuly 05, 2013
June has been such a hectic month that I've mainly been reaching for the same products everyday as it requires little brain effort, though there has been a few new additions.
1. Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
For years I've used Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion without much of a second thought, though recently I've noticed that it isn't quite living up to expectations. By lunch time I was sporting some very unattractive creases and smudging, so declaring enough was enough, I made the trip to Space NK to purchase Nars' Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base in the hope it would keep my eyeshadow in place. Now, unfortuately this is by no means a miricle worker, I still find a little bit of creasing in the very inner crease of my eye after a few hours, but that being said, I've noticed a huge improvement. My eyeshadow stays in place all day without smudging and the colour doesn't fade. It is pretty pricey at £19 but a little goes a long way and I can see this lasting a long time.
2. Mac Mineralize Blush in Dainty
I've been sweeping this over my cheeks recently for an instant flush of pink. As it is quite shimmery I don't need to use a highlighter which is perfect for days when i'm in a rush but still want a bit of a glow.
3. Alpha H Absolute Eye Complex
As you can probably tell by the faded packaging, this has been getting a lot of use lately. It refreshes and hydrates the under eye area and creates the perfect base for under eye concealer. It works particularly well when kept in the fridge, for the ultimate cooling experience!
4. Mac Lipglass in Pink Lemonade
I'm not really a fan of lipgloss, and Mac's in particular is a sticky lipgloss haters worst nightmare, though there is something about this colour that makes it bearable. It's the perfect pinky-coral for summer and I can imagine it looks gorgeous with a tan.
5. & Other Stories Nail Polish in Mousseline Apricot
This colour is absolutely gorgeous. As the name suggests it's a apricot colour with gold shimmer running through it. It can be worn alone, though as it is really sheer I prefer layering it over the top of other polishes for a beautiful shimmery finish. For only £5 it's pretty affordable too.
