Oh God! It’s June favourites time and that means we’re at the half way mark, it also means it’s birthday time, which if I’m honest tends to freak me more and more as the years go by. Anyway back to the post. I picked out my favouites for the month of June based on what I was reaching for most. Most of the products are trusty favouites but I’ve also included a couple of new products which you may not have seen before as well as some fairly recent purchases. Here’s what I loved most over the month of June:
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer: One of the products I haven’t shared with you before is my Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer (in Soft Beige). I’m not sure what persuaded me to buy this concealer but I’m glad I did. I primarily use it to cover the dark circles under my eyes as it works magic on making me look less zombi-fied. What I’ve enjoyed most about this concealer is that it’s super creamy, has a subtle brightening effect and it doesn’t cake or crease. It’s a great dupe for NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in my opinion, minus the price tag of course.
Shisedo Shimmering Cream Shadows: Even though I picked these up relatively late in the month they’ve quickly become my go-to cream shadow. I’ve literally used these every day since I picked them up, no joke. To say I’m obsessed it a bit of an understatement (I’ve already picked up a third shade, which I will share in an upcoming post). There’s so much to love about these shadows; the texture is amazing, they super lightweight and easy to apply and the formulation is long lasting and doesn’t crease. Hands down my favourite cream shadow to date.
Chanel Velvet Foundation: I’ve featured this foundation in my monthly favourites before but it’s just so damn good. I just love the finish of this foundation and it feels super lightweight, which means I never actually feel like I’m wearing a foundation. Although it’s a tad too dark for me right now (I’m a nice shade of sick at the moment) it’s just the perfect base for when I don’t want to look like I’m wearing a base. This is definitely one to try if you have oily-combination skin or just want to dabble with a velvet finish (lightweight) foundation.Chanel Rouge Coco Shine (Monte Carlo): I’ve been a bit lazy on the lipstick front, crazy I know, especially for someone who claims to adore them more than any other beauty product. Monte Carlo has been my go-to everyday shade as it’s the perfect anytime, anywhere shade (a soft pink-red). It really perks my complexion, plus it’s super hydrating which is perfect for the cold windy days we’ve been experiencing lately.Antipodes Brightening Powder: I’ve recently retired my Benefit Agent Zero Shine Powder, which I was on the fence with but wanted to use up. In summation I was really amazed that i got through the little pot so quickly. Then I recalled how much product was actually in the pot (7 measly grams! Yes I said 7 gm, for $44 AUD! That’s highway robbery Benefit). I digress. Back to the Antipodes Brightening powder. I’ve really enjoyed using this product when I’ve needed a little powder to finish my look. In the past I’ve mentioned that I’m not a huge powder wearer in the past however I’ve also said there is always a time and place. Despite my combination skin, this powder really imparts a lovely sheen that radiates healthy happy skin. It doesn’t cake or look heavy either.
What were some of your monthly beauty (or non-beauty) favourites? Did any of mine make your list?
