Favourites | June 2014

June 2014 Favourites ft By Terry CC Lumi-Serum, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer Ginger, Topshop Cream Blusher Head over heels, Clinique Chubby Stick Mega Melon, Maybelline Brow Drama, The Body Shop Body Butter Brazil Nut Eyeko Skinny Liner - Aspiring Londoner

Favourites time again!  This month has flown faster than the five before it.  Let’s get cracking!

I’ve reviewed this beautiful blusher in full here.  In short, I really love it.  I used to steer clear of cream blusher due to my oily/combination skin. However since I started using this cream to powder formula blusher, it’s been a love affair to write about.  It blends well due to the cream formula yet doesn’t leave a horrible oily glow on my oily complexion around lunch time as the finish is that of a powder blusher.  Perfect summer cheek companion!

The ends of my hair has been insanely recently.  Then I remembered Estee from Essiebutton mentioning this leave-in detangling spray – had to go get it.  Firstly, it smells amazing!  So nice and fruity!  Can’t even describe how much I enjoy the fragrance of this in my hair.  After using this, my hair has been so much more manageable.  I haven’t got that annoying clump of tangled hair at the nape of my neck!  The ends of my hair have been really soft to touch and smooth.  If you have same hair issues, definitely give this a go.

I wasn’t too drawn to this brow mascara when it was first released.  I didn’t buy into the hype that a brow mascara could make much of a difference, especially to sparse brows like mine.  After my By Terry Experience, I needed to try a brow mascara (with a cheaper price tag of course!).  This has made a visible difference to my sparse, unruly brows.  My brows stayed in place and the colour was opaque enough that I can get away with not using another brow product.

My By Terry Experience left me wanting everything by the brand, but I reigned myself in and picked the one thing that impressed me the most.  The CC-serum has skincare benefits of a serum and colour corrects your complexion, giving you the light base that you need for the hot summer months.  I’ve been wearing this every single day this month, and will do for the rest of the summer!  It’s rose fragranced as are most By Terry products and has beautiful texture that just glides on your skin.

Another Estee enabled purchase, that girl’s gonna get me bankrupt one day!  She was right though, this stuff smells incredible! It’s just so sweet and feels so nourishing!  If you love body butters, you need to get your hands on this.  Beautiful is an understatement.

Best.Concealer.Ever.  Wow!  I got matched at a Nars counter years ago and hated how it looked on me so wrote it off.  Recently I got colour matched at Space NK and it was two shades lighter! It is a perfect shade for my under eyes and blemishes – which is rare.  It is so light but gives really good coverage.  I’m just in awe.  This paired with the By Terry CC Lumi-Serum has been my base everyday of June.  You want the perfect concealer?  Go get this, now.

I’ve been using Clinique products since I was a teenager.  I always have a number of Clinique products in my stash, especially when they have their bonus times.  I mean, I’ve had a text alert for years for when the bonus time offers hits the stores. Yes, I am that bad!  Anyway, I received this particular chubby stick with a bonus time gift.  I wasn’t about the shade initially as it’s a sheer peach with shimmer running through it.  It’s actually been perfect as a day time balm/lip colour to wear.  It’s moisturising and adds just a little colour and shimmer to your lips.  I love these chubby sticks!

One the hottest trend this summer has been coloured eye liner.  Practically, you couldn’t rock up to work wearing turquoise eye liner!  So when I heard this was free with Glamour magazine, I picked it up straightaway.  It’s really easy use as it’s a felt pen and the navy is dark enough for you to get away with coloured liner every day.  This has made me want to try other coloured liquid liners.

This has been a long favourites post, but I just had too many to choose from!
