Monthly Loves June

Monthly Favourites June - Naked 2, Sigma, Nars, ESPA, River Island
Hey beauties I've not blogged about a monthly favourites before, I'm not entirely sure as to why as I really enjoy reading and watching what others are currently loving. Here a few items that I have been slightly obsessed with!
Monthly Favourites June - Naked 2, Sigma, Nars, ESPA, River Island
Sigma Tapered Highlighter F35
A couple of months ago I brought this along with a few other make up brushes from the Jaclyn Hill Beauty Expert Box (click here to see what other amazing brushes I brought) I must admit that this was one of the brushes of the collection that I was a bit 'mehhh' about, well how wrong was I?! I LOVE this brush! It's perfect for multiply uses: I use this to set my under eye concealer, to highlight my cheekbones with my Mary Lou Manizer (review here) AND to blush for a very natural, subtle glow.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
I'm pretty sure that everyone has come across this beautiful eyeshadow palette at some point so I shan't ramble too much. However this contains the perfect eyeshadow look for Summer whether you fancy a natural everyday or a more smoked out look. My favourites are Half Baked, Chopper, Snakebite, YDK, Busted and Blackout - so pretty much every single one haha!
 L'Oreal Lumi Magic Primer
This really does give you beautiful results, I mix this in with my foundation and I am loving the dewy finish this leaves on my skin! The colour of this product is a gorgeous white/silvery glowy sheen and isn't sparkly like most, it's so glowy but natural if that makes sense?! All of the above I feel gives a beautiful glow from within which is perfect for the Summer.
 Nars Blush Orgasm
An oldie but a goldie and a must have for anyone and everyone's make up bag. This is a beautiful peachy coral, perfect for Summer, which is so flattering and suits every skintone. It is finely milled, silky and pigmented and is easily hands down the best blush I have ever used.
ESPA 24-Hour Balancing Moisturiser
Of course an ESPA product would make an appearance throughout my first favourites post. Such an essential for me throughout S/S! I honestly believe that without this product my make up would be sliding down my face during the scorcher days we've been having lately *how attractive* A little of this goes a very long way, it has a light texture, feels beaut on your skin and it is also scientifically proven to work for 24 hours too!
Aveeno Moisturising Cream
Ok, I know I say this more than the average person but in all honestly this cream is a life saviour for me. I've not been very well at all lately, hence why I've had a slight break from my blog, due to this my skin has broken in silly amounts of really dry, painful skin rashes alongside many other things, I used every product under the sun to try and keep these at bay until this wonderful cream fell into my hands! It cleared the majority of them up within 2 days (depending on the size) the tightness and pain completely gone woohoo! I try not to use this too often as I don't want to be entirely dependant on one cream but I would highly recommend this to anyone who suffers with Eczema, Dermatitis, Psoriasis etc and if you do decide to give this a try I do hope your results are as good as mine :)
River Island White Vest Top
In my Spring/Summer clothing haul (here) I picked this up as it was the perfect combo with a skirt that I also picked up from RI. This is a staple item as it goes with absolutely everything and it can be either dressed up or down. I've mainly been wearing this with a midi/maxi skirt seeing as the weather has been pretty beaut of late!
Something Blue by Emily Giffin
If any of you have seen the film or read the book Something Borrowed then you'll love this as it's a carry on from there however it's told from Darcy's point of view instead of Rachel's. Ever since I've brought this I cannot put it down as I'm really engrossed in it, I also got this for 1p on Amazon - bargain!
What are your current faves?
