June Favourites

I'm so astonished it's the 1st of July already. Where did June go?? I did quite alot last month so hopefully July is even better. There is so many birthday's in July, so I guess I'm going to be pretty broke for it. This is also going to be the month were I finally do my dreaded theory test and learn how to drive. I'm kinda nervous and excited about this all at the same time.

Being the end of another month it means I have alot of favourites. This month has a bit of a mix bag, from skincare to books to makeup I sure have been loving alot this month. 

Liz Earle Skin Repair Light Moisturiser 
Before I started blogging I'd never really heard much about Liz Earle products. I can't believe this as I'm such a big fan now. I purchased this product at the Liz Earle event I attended earlier this month. I can safely say I'm in love with it. My last moisturiser wasn't doing much for my skin as it was quite heavy so I was on the look out for a new one. This product is so gentle and light so it's perfect for people with combination/oily skin like me. I will definitely be repurchasing it.

Bliss Super-Sized Lemon + Sage Body Butter
This had to go into this months favourites as I got it for such a good bargain.The Lemon + Sage body butter is very moisturising on my skin as I do get dry patches on my elbows. I love the scent of this product, it's so refreshing and citrusy. The tube is so big that it's going to take me a while to finish it so that's a good thing.

Yves Saint Laurent Palette Pink Celebration- Face Highlighter
This product was a part of Yves Saint Laurent Spring Collection. I have a big collection of highlighters it's unreal, I don't know where they came from. That said I always use highlighters so I do use them up. This product is definitely a  favorite of mine. Firstly wow I love the packaging it's incredibly beautiful and it's different to any product in my collection. I just use a tiny bit of this on my brow/cheek bone and it's give me a gorgeous glow. I tend to use this sparingly as I really want it too last.

Loreal Lash Architect 4D
Surprise Surprise Loreal bring out a new mascara that I absolutely love. My mom bought this for me when she was in holidays in Spain. I've been using it so much. It's s nice mascara that leaves your eyelashes looking like falsies without leaving the clumpy which I don't particularly like. The packaging in my opinion looks super futuristic. Definitely a mascare to try if you haven't already.

Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace in Baby Doll
I got this lipgloss in a set with 3 other minis but Baby Doll is my fave at the moment. I'm pretty new to Laura Mercier products in general and this was my first purchase. I've been using this lipgloss for the past month now and I love it. It's a gorgeous light pink shade with a hint of shimmer which shows up real nicely on the lips. Size wise, Baby Doll is perfect as it slips right into my purse.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion-Original
This primer potion has always been a firm favourite of mine. Even before I started blogging it was a part of my everyday makeup routine. This deserved a part in my monthly favourites because the product is not only amazing but I'm loving the sleek new packaging too. It is now easier to access the product as it's a squeeze tube. I think the change of packaging was much needed. There'll be no more wasted efforts to get every last morsel out with that wand.

OPI Planks Alot
Recently I did a NOTD on this mini nail polish. I've been using it so much lately as I think it's such a nice lilac shade. Planks Alot is definitely my favourite polish in the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection so far. It's such a nice shade for the summer. I am tempted to purchase it in the full size soon.

The Vampire Diaries Books
As I'm such a big fan of the TV series, I decided to purchase some of the Vampire Diaries books. I've gone through three already, one being the prequel. I am really enjoying them so far. I don't want to give away the plot, all I'm going to say is the books and the TV series are unalike. Everything from character descriptions to the plot are different. This is not a bad thing at all as if you like the TV series you'll love these books too. There are so many different stories that aren't covered in the show and it's full of suspense. I really can't wait to read the rest of the books in the collection.

That comes to the end of my favourites for this month as you can see I've had quite a few.

What has made it into your June favourites??
