June is my favourite month of the year, it’s my birthday month- and the weather is usually pretty good! This year however, we weren’t so lucky here in the UK. Where are you summer?
Anyway, this month I’ve got a range of products- including a couple of sun creams- of course! If you want to know more about all of these beauties, read on!
Too Faced Melted Long Wear Liquid Lipstick- Nude (here)
This smells like drumstick lollies! It took me a few days of ‘I’m sure i recognise this smell’ to figure it out, but it really does smell like a drumstick lollipop.
I have always been against wearing brown/ orange lipsticks, because I always felt like they would just wash my skin out and make me look pasty. But I bought this thinking it was a plain nude, and a soon as a put it on i was just like ‘Whoa’. I love the colour. I think if anything it compliments my red hair and freckles.
A lot of matte lipsticks really dry the lips out, but all I do before applying this is slap on a little vaseline and i’m good to go! It doesn’t leave my lips flaky at all, and it isn’t cakey, so it’s almost like you’re not wearing a lipstick at all. I recommend this to anybody who wants an all-round good liquid lipstick.
Malibu SPF 50 (here)
This stuff is the best Sun Cream I have ever used, honestly. Because I’m a redhead, and my skin is pale- I need strong stuff to keep my protected from the sun. I have had so many different types over the years, and I have settled on this now. A lot of the time, high SPF creams are just so thick and white that they just don’t sink into the skin- staying sticky and greasy for hours. I hate the feel of grease on my skin, so this is not a good thing for me.
This is a spray, and it’s invisible. It’s not thick, gloopy or sticky- it just soaks straight into the skin and lasts for about 4 hours. If I am in the sun all day I would only have to spray this over me twice. Which I think is pretty good! If you burn easily like me, I highly recommend trying this sun cream!
Malibu Scalp Protector SPF 15 (here)
I only heard about this a few weeks ago. I didn’t know that there was such a thing as scalp spray, but I am so grateful because my head burns so easily, and it hurts.Just as the Sun spray, it’s clear and not a thick consistency, and surprisingly it doesn’t make your hair greasy. Again, for all of my pale friends out there- this is worth the money!
Wild and Alluring Palette (here)
If you’ve already read my review for this palette, you’ll know that I am smitten. If not, have a little look: Wild and Alluring Palette Review
Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit (here)
I’m not big on contouring, purely because I just don’t think it looks right when you have a lot of freckles. I feel like covering your freckles completely is just a crying shame! I love my freckles- so I try to go fairly light on my skin routine.
This is the first contour kit i have ever had, and I really like it. It’s not too pigmented so it doesn’t leave your skin looking too muddy, and the highlight colour in my opinion is a great base colour for the eyelids. When i want a natural eye look- I usually use this colour all over the lid and the medium and dark brown in the crease. Anyway… for the cheeks I can’t use the darkest brown because my skin is too light, but i love the medium one. It’s a lovely matte, neutral brown with just a hint of warmness to it, which works well on my skin.
Yankee Candle Tangerine and Vanilla (here)
Oh my goodness, I love this smell!
I am a huge fan of candles, I even make my own in autumn and winter. But nothing beats a good Yankee Candle, and this one takes the biscuit. Fruity and sweet, this is fast becoming my favourite candle scent of all time. If you love fruity smells, but aren’t a massive fan of sickly sweet, this is a great option. The best way I can describe it is a mixture between orange juice and refreshers… okay, maybe I’m not the best at describing smells… but trust me! It’s sooo good!
Spectrum Marbelous White Makeup Brush Bag (here)
White Marble + Rose Gold = PERFECTION
Honestly, this bag is EVERYTHING! The quality is amazing and the feel of it is just beautiful. It’s a spacious bag and I have no problem fitting all of my brushes in here. If you’re looking for a classy, pretty makeup brush bag- look no further!
That’s it for June! Which is your favourite of these products? Are there any you haven’t tried? Let me know down below 🙂
