Since my exams have finished this month I’ve been going out a lot more so have had more opportunities to wear makeup. So I have quite a few makeup favourites this month with a little bit of a pink theme because I trying out some products for my prom makeup. Plus I have a couple of hair products, so lets get stuck in.
No7 Stay Perfect Shade and Define – Pink Pearl
I had heard so much about these so when I was in Boots I just had to pick this up and this was the shade that I chose because I think it’s so beautiful. I love wearing this all over my lids and a little bit under my lower lash line with loads of mascara. I’ve fallen so in love with this that at the moment it’s what I’m planning to wear to prom! My only issue is what happens when it goes really blunt? Not sure how to sharpen it to get more precision!
MaXfactor Colour Elixir Lip Liner – 02 Pink Petal
I’ve heard that this is compared to a Charlotte Tilbury lip liner (Pillow Talk I think?) which I’ve never tried so I won’t be able to compare, however I do still love this. This is the first lip liner that I’ve ever tried and I really live it. It’s really natural but I can subtly make my lips look a bit bigger and more defined. Another prom makeup pick I’m thinking!
The Body Shop Define and Lengthen Mascara
I have already talked about this before on this blog a while back but in previous months I have been trying some new mascaras. I started reaching for this one again this month and I can’t remember why I ever stopped using it. It does lengthen and define but it never clumps and still looks really natural which I love. Plus the brush is amazing for really getting in there and coating each individual lash which I don’t think many other mascaras are able to do that well.
Revlon Colourburst Lacquer Balm – Demure
I’ve had this for a little while now and I’ve done a whole blogpost on this before which you can find here for more details and samples. Basically as it has been getting sunnier I found myself wanted to wear a pretty pinky glossy lip more and this always seems to be the one that I reach for.
Benefit The Porefessional
I got this about a month ago as a freebie in a magazine so that’s why if you are wondering why this is so little! I feel like everyone has been talking about this recently so I was so excited to try this. The thing is when I first used it I was a little disappointed. I don’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t that. I found the texture a bit gritty and weird. However I’ve been trying this more this month and I actually really like it I think it’s a great base for makeup. I still don’t really understand what all of the hype is about but I do like this and I have been reaching for it a lot this month.
Aussie Miracle Shine Shampoo and Conditioner
Aussie has been the only shampoo and conditioner that I have used for probably about 5 years. But this month I was using a different range for Aussie, which was the shine boosting collection. Firstly I love the smell of this and secondly this has done some amazing thing too my hair and it definitely feels a lot silkier. And this has been great for my hair especially as I have been using a lot more heat on it this month.
Hope you have all had a lovely month and a great start to summer 🙂 xx
