June Favourites

This month I have been trying out lots of new makeup which I have bought and most of it is still being put to test, and is not quite ready to make the favourites post quite yet. However, I have two brand new products from Benefit and Colourpop which I have been loving and been using on a daily basis so they have definitely been put to the test. 

The first is the Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil. I got this as a sample on this month's Elle magazine right at the start of the month. I have been using it on a daily basis as my previous eyebrow pencil the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer had literally just ran out, so it was perfect timing. The texture is waxy and a tad too dry for my liking, but it works really well and does it job. I like the nib of the pencil as it is wide, flat and angled meaning you can easy fill them in without too much fuss. Considering you could not choose the shade which you was getting I was skeptical about the shade which I would end up with. However, I ended up getting shade 2 which turned out to be a fairly good match to my eyebrow colour which is a medium brown shade. All in all, if you are wanting to try it grab this month's Elle for the sample as it's £18.50 in full size.

I recently made a Colourpop haul which contained only lip products and you can have a read of this here. Cami is the shade which I instantly loved when I first swatched it. It is a purple nude toned lipstick, which is part of their lippie stix X matte range. I really like the formulation of these as they are creamy yet still dry matte and stay matte. This has high pigmentation, is easier to apply than a liquid lipstick as it is a little smoother and I feel there is a lot less chance of it smudging. It does not drag and feels weightless once on your lips. This is such a beautiful shade and has been one which has sat in the bottom of my handbag all month.

The NYX Angel Veil Primer has been put to the test over the last few months. This has a smooth creamy consistency which easily blends into the skin. The formula is not sticky but it has a slight tackiness to it which obviously serves the purpose to make your foundation stay in place. I previously used the Laura Mercier primer which was a liquid gel consistency so this differs to that a lot. However, I feel like it works just as well. The main positive aspect of this is it doesn't feel thick, cakey or slimy when applied to the skin. This has become really popular as it is currently sold out on Boot's, ASOS and Selfridges. However, when I popped into my local Boot's last week they had a lot of stock still available.

I totally rediscovered the Urban Decay Fixing Spray this month, and boy am I glad I did. This stuff is like gold, it literally makes my makeup last and not budge off my face for hours. In the summer it definitely gets its most use, as I tend to use less makeup and I don't want it literally melting off my face. This is nearly all used up and I think next time I am going to purchase the All Nighter version as my skin is a lot less oiler than it used to be. If you have any recommendations please give me a shout. 

What have you been loving in June?
