June Favourites

The Rimmel Lasting Finish Nail Polish in Strawberry Fizz has been a nice bright addition to my nails this month. This is a classic barbie pink, which I love at this time of the year. Until I put it on I was intrigued at at the scent of this as it is part of the fruity collection. I was amazed at how much it really does smell of strawberries, it is a strong scent so if your not a fan of your nails smelling this is not for you. I found the concept a bit crazy, but I actually like it, I was surprised at how long this lasted without chipping, a good 3-4 days, the scent lasted 24 hours and then you can smell it very faintly. As I bought this last summer, it was part of an exclusive collection, and I do not think it is still on sale.

Another Rimmel product which I have been talking about quite a lot on my blog recently, is the Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob. It is a perfect darker pink lip liner, which matches many of my MAC lipsticks. I have never been a big lip liner fan, but this has completely converted me. I own MAC's lip pencil in Subculture, but I have hardly ever used it as I find it hard to apply and the pencil is quite scratchy. I much prefer this Rimmel one, as it is a soft twist pencil, which makes application so much easier and quicker. At just £3.99 this is such a bargain of a product, if you are wanting to try out a lip liner this is such a great one to start with.

The Sephora Mineral Powder Brush, I bought this back in August last year and it has been hiding amongst all of my other brushes. I started using it a few weeks ago, and I have been really loving it. The bristles are short and really packed making buffing powder into your face really easy and quick. The handle is nice and wide making it easy to hold.

When I first bought this L'Oreal Colour Riche Mono Eyeshadow in Nude last year some time when Amelia Liana was raving about how good the pigmentation of the product is, I instantly bought it. However I never seemed to get on with it, and it seemed to crease all over my eyelid, and looked a little harsh. But I have recently got it back out, and I am so happy I rediscovered it. I have been testing out the best way to use it, and I have learnt a little goes a long way. I apply it with my fingers and then quickly blend it out with my MAC 217 Blending Brush.

Along with the L'Oreal eyeshadow, I have been loving my MAC Eyeshadow in Woodwinked. This has been a favourite of mine since I started my blog over a year and a half ago. I have an individual version, as well as one in my quad MAC palette. I blend this in the creases and on the outer third of my eyelid, to add a little smokiness. It is the most versatile colour ever, a bold statement but it is a serious must have product. This is once again a great staple product to have in your collection, and it is brilliant for when you are travelling as you can wear it on its own or blend it with so many other colours.
