June Favourites 2016

I feel like I say this every month but would you believe how quick this year is going? We are already at the end of June - halfway through the year and it feels like 2016 only started yesterday. I haven't tried a whole lot of products this month but I have found some new favourites that I look forward to using throughout Summer.

Absolute New York Velvet Lippie in 'Toasted'

I haven't been able to pull this colour off all over the lips but it has proved to be a great colour for creating an ombre lip when I wear darker lipsticks. I really love to put on a liquid lipstick like Colourpop's Beeper then add a little bit of Toasted in the middle. It creates such a subtle transition to the darker colour and certainly brings attention to the lips.

Barry M Coconut Infusion Nail Paint in 'Surfboard'

As a fan of darker nail polishes I find it hard to like colourful nail polishes but Surfboard is just soo pretty and makes me want to get into more Summer shades. It also contains Coconut Water & Coconut Oil which have helped my nails to be in a better condition when it's time for the polish to come off. I cannot wait to try the entire range of their Coconut Infusion polishes as they have such beautiful colours.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer

If you like a full coverage look then this is the concealer for you. It it is perfect for covering up any redness that I usually have around my eyes and on my cheeks. Usually I have trouble finding a concealer that matches my skin tone as I am quite pale but this one manages to match me exactly. A beauty blender + this concealer = perfection!

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadow in 'Créme De Nude'

I love using this as a base for my eyeshadow, it really helps to conceal the veins on my eyelids. I like that it dries very quickly and helps my eyeshadow to stay on 10x longer than it normally does. I have also heard it is a great dupe for MAC's Pro Longwear Paint Pot in 'Soft Ochre' so at almost a third of that price you really can't go wrong!

Ardell Demi Wispies 

These eyelashes have been one of my favourites for a while, they are so natural and easily blend with the natural lash line. If your going through one of those days where your not really feeling to wear any eyeliner but you still want your eyes to stand out then these will make your eyes so incredibly defined.

Nivea For Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm

I feel like I'm late to the party with this favourite, I have seen so many people rave about it but I never had a chance to try it until my friend did my makeup recently. She put this on as a primer and I can honestly say I don't think my makeup has ever sat so perfectly on my face before this product. It has also got a really nice cooling effect which helps to soothe my skin and reduce some of my redness.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your June favourites? Don't forget to let me know in the comments any products you have been loving as I would love to know!
