Monthly Favourites | June 2014

posted on: Wednesday, July 2, 2014

The month of June just flew by! It was an intense month because of my comprehensive exam, but that is finally behind me. Now I just have to wait for the results. Anyway, here are some of my beauty favourites from the month of June.

The first product I will mention is the L'oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder foundation. I'm really loving this foundation at the moment. It's a pretty thin formula, but it has the most interesting texture.  It goes on so light and thin, but dries to a powdery finish. You have to be pretty careful when pouring it out though because it's such a thin consistency. I have it in the shade 312.

Next is the L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush. This eyeshadow gets a lot of hype around the blogosphere, but I'd have to stay that it lives up to that hype. It's such a gorgeous shade, and so pigmented! I wore this a lot in June because I was just hanging around home studying. When I wanted to put on a little makeup this eyeshadow was easy to wear and looks great on its own.

Another raved about product that I loved throughout June was the Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm. This lip balm is heaven! I love it. I've been using it most nights before I go to bed and randomly throughout the day. Again, this was great because I was sticking around home studying. It's not the type of lip balm you want to throw in your purse because it comes in a little jar and it a pretty thick formula.

I hardly every wear the same nail polish twice in a row, but when Essie's Bikini so Teeny started to chip I wasn't ready to move on to a new colour so I redid my nails in this shade for another week or so. I think this has to be my favourite summer shade for nails.

Last is my new Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Extravagant waterproof mascara*. It's described to have dramatic impact and graphic precision. I've been really enjoying this mascara the last few weeks. I hadn't used a waterproof mascara in ages but I am liking this one. I'll have a review coming up on it soon!

What have you been loving lately?
