Monthly Favourites | June

I have been busy back in sixthform and starting my A2 studies as well as going out and seeing family for my birthday. I am back to blogging and hope to return to posting regularly.
Today I am going to tell you the products I have been loving throughout the month of June :)

Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher - 39 Rose Mandarine LINK
I have read some reviews on this blush for a while and the majority said that each shade is chalky and not very pigmented. However, I found this to be very pigmented and blend easily on the skin.
Rose mandarine is a gorgeous peach-coral shade which is perfect for Summer.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush LINK
This is definitely the best brush to use for foundation and is much better than my BBC F20 which I have mentioned multiple times. It blends foundation and concealer on the skin really well and gives a really nice and almost airbrush finish on the skin.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter LINK
This is a cheap lip balm and is definitely one of the best I have tried and my lip balm collection is becoming a bit out of control. It moisturises your lips really well which lasts for a few hours whilst also leaving a slight sheen on the lips but isn't too noticeable.

This is only one of many setting sprays available among brands such as Urban Decay and Model in a Bottle. I have also tried the e.l.f. setting spray and I haven't really noticed a massive difference between that and the MAC one. This reduces the powdery look on the skin whilst helping your makeup to last longer throughout the day. You can also spray this to refresh your makeup.

Revlon Lip Butter - Juicy Papaya LINK
I was definitely late to join the hype of the Revlon lip butters but I wasn't a massive fan of the first shades which were released originally. The juicy papaya shade caught my eye as soon as it was released and it is a lovely coral shade which a hint of pink to it. Very moisturising and has great pigmentation that can be built up or sheered out for whichever look you prefer.

Bourjois Radiance Reveal Healthy Mix Foundation LINK
I was skeptical when Bourjois changed the formula for this foundation and I definitely prefer the new one. Provides great coverage, lasts all day with the help of some powder and it also provides a very subtle glow to the face which is perfect for this time of year.

Original Tangle Teezer LINK
Once again late to join the hype on this product and I am very happy that I finally did. This detangles your hair really well leaving it soft and smooth and helping to prevent any tangles in your hair throughout the day. This also stops the ends of your hair from breaking as often as other hairbrushes.

MUA Professional Eyeshadow Palette - Heaven and Earth LINK
I have actually had this palette for over a year but never actually used it. Throughout the month of may I have been using the lightest shade in this palette as a highlight in the inner corner of my eye which just brightens up the entire eye area. I have also occasionally been using the shade on the bottom row and 3 from the left, all over the lid for just a quick wash of colour.

Broadchurch Series LINK
I only saw a little bit of the last episode when this was being broadcast on TV and I was hooked by the clip I saw. I received the DVD for my birthday and watched all 8 episodes over the past 2 days and it is definitely one of the best programmes I have ever watched. Whatever genre of programmes you like to watch, everyone will love this and you will definitely be hooked and glued to the screen.

Thank you for reading and I hope you found something you may want to purchase yourself.
