June Make-up Favourites

So normally I do these as a video (or I try to anyway!) but as I only have a handful of new faves this month, of which are mainly beauty-related I figured it could be nice to just do a lil' roundup.

Trilogy Hydrating Mist Toner - A lovely toner. I spritz this on after cleansing my face morning and evening and you can really feel it hydrate your skin. I would always look at toner as being a bit of an unnecessary step before I tried this and I'd always thought that the formulas for toner were too astringent for my combination skin. This however,  is lovely and gentle with a calming rose scent (real natural y'all).

W7 Ebony Blush - I've never tried anything by W7 before but I was in the market for a nice understated blush that I could wear with a bold lip - which was actually seriously hard to find - and stumbled across this gem. Excellent colour pay off, not too sparkly and long-lasting (tested in the sweaty summer sun).

Bioderma Sensibio Tolerance - My skin was freakin' out the other day, like properly freakin' so I needed something the perk it back up and gave this a whirl as it was sent into the office. The Sensibio range by Bioderma is formulated specifically for sensitive skin and this product aims to neutralise hypersensitivity. the dry patches on my face where getting rather flaky but my t-zone was even more oilier so I found myself needing to constantly powder - powder over dry patches = scaly mess. However this product has helped relieved the dry tightness and made my skin like new again. Whoop!

bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm in Plumberry Pop - Right now this is my go-to subtle bright lip. It feels like more of a tinted balm because it's so darn moisturising but the colour payoff is excellent and when it wears away it leaves a gorgeous tint to the lips. Literally can't rave about this formula enough. I may have to purchase the entire range...

NARS Eyeshadow Duo - The shades of these shadows are so not special but that is totally what I love about them, they are understated but add a gorgeous subtle shimmer to the eye - I've loved sweeping the lighter, peachier shade all over the lid and adding the darker shade to the outer corner and finishing the look with a sweep of eyeliner.

Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream - This smells like actual heaven. It's so fragrant but beyond that the formula is so moisturising yet sinks in uber quickly. It's like a little spa for your hands.

beautyblender PRO - Makeup sponges have never been on my agenda - I'm much more of a brush girl, but I've always been intrigued by the beautyblender. The tutorials I've seen with them on YouTube always look super flawless so I thought 'why not give it a go?' And I'm literally so pleased I did - it makes your makeup look actually airbrushed but not in a super weird way like those apps - look at this pic, ok the expression isn't great but my skin looks good and it isn't even a little bit filtered whatsover - thanks beautyblender!

Clinique Superbalanced Makeup - I'd be fibbing if I said I needed more foundation. I have plenty and they all work perfectly, catering to my different needs but this enticed me in with it's frosted glass bottle and promise of balancing my skin and controlling oil. It provides medium coverage and feels light and breathable on the skin. I'm obsessed.
