Hello my lovelies! How is everything going? I hope you all are doing great and are enjoying the summer and your holidays! I actually cannot believe that today is the last day of the month of June; where on Earth did the time go! I feel as if I just skipped the whole month and I transported myself directly to July haha! I am by no means complaining though because on July 12th is my birthday, which I am really excited about ,so everything is fine! :) For today’s I Heart Summer series I wanted to do my June Favorites. I actually don’t have many makeup favorites because I actually wore very minimal makeup for the past month but I still have a few! :) Hope you enjoy!
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs ($12 / £9,99)
I’m going to start with my top favorite product of the month and it is without a doubt this Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs spray. Now I am really pale and for me the worst thing about summer is my legs! I hate their color and since I don’t fancy sun tanning a lot I need to use self-tan. The one that is absolute winner in my books is this one by Sally Hansen! This stuff is such a miracle worker; it not only gives my legs beautiful and natural tanned look but it also hides any imperfections I may have, which is incredible! It is basically like makeup for your legs and surprisingly it doesn’t feel heavy or anything; it feels really moisturizing and your legs are SO soft to the touch. I cannot recommend this product enough if you like self-tanning and I am actually thinking of doing a full review on the product soon with before and after pictures so keep your eyes peeled if you’re interested! (:
The Body Shop Body Butter Duo in Floral Acai ($20 / £13)
Speaking of perfect skin for summer, the next product I love using to make my skin as perfect for summer as possible is this Butter Duo in Floral Acai from The Body Shop. What I love about it is that it actually has two types of moisturizer (hence the name). The first one is more like a lotion, it is more liquid-y and it is great to use on normal skin. I apply this on my arms, shoulders, chest area and my back and it just gives the perfect amount of hydration. The second one though is much more thicker in consistency and it is like legit butter, which I like to use on areas where my skin is a bit more dry such as my legs, elbows, knees and heels. This softens and moisturizes the skin SO well while leaving it smell divine of floral acai! I am actually a huge fan of THB body butters but for summer I feel like that they may be a bit too heavy, so this duo is perfect! <3
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Milk Chocolate ($30)
Moving on to makeup, the one product that I wore every day on my face was this Chocolate SoleilBronzer from Too Faced. I absolutely love using it both for contouring and just in cases when I want to give a little bit of color and warmth to my face. The bronzer is not in the slightest muddy or orange and looks really natural on my skin, which is extremely important for me. It doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter in it and it’s completely matte, which if you ask me is the way to go during the day. I love Chocolate Soleil’s formula because it is perfectly pigmented and really easy to work with. Another thing I am crazy about this bronzer is the lovely cocoa scent, I kid you not – it smells like chocolate and it is super delicious! :) If you want to see my full review on this product you can do so here .
MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study ($18,50 / £14,50)
As I’ve mentioned earlier, I wasn’t feeling like wearing much makeup during June and pretty much the only eye makeup I was using was MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study. I like to just swipe a little bit of product all over my lid, put on some mascara and I’m ready to go! I absolutely adore this cream eye shadow because it not only doesn’t crease but also it really is creamy and pretty easy and hustle-free to use. As far as the shade goes, I LOVE it. It is such a gorgeous champagne-y color and its lovely pearl-y finish brightens up the look so beautifully and makes me look awake and fresh! Bare Study has always been a staple in my makeup collection and if you don’t already own it, I highly suggest you getting it because it is absolutely gorgeous! :)
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Pearl in Sari Pink ($28 / £21)
Last but certainly not least, for my makeup favorites in June we have this gorgeous lip gloss from Dior in the shade Sari Pink. I recently did a full review with swatches on this little gem (you can see it here) so I won’t be getting into much detail, but I just have to tell you that I ADORE it. Sari Pink is this beautiful coral-y pink with some lovely blue undertones to it. It has lovely fuchsia and silver shimmer in it and when on the lips it is super shiny and glossy! <3 It looks super natural and I feel like it’s the prettiest summer shade! Another thing I love about this lip gloss is that it isn’t by any means sticky, which is rare in lip gloss and I give it big thumbs up! The gloss is also pretty hydrating and won’t dry out your lips! :)
Essie Cute as a Button ($8 / £7,89)
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while then it won’t surprise you that for nail polish I have been loving Essie Cute as a Button. I swear, I haven’t been wearing anything else on my nail than this cute shade during June. I just love it SO much and it is without a doubt my favorite summer shade, I don’t even know what was I doing before Cute as a Button came into my life haha! It is this fab pinkish orange-y coral, which basically sums up the summer for me! I absolutely adore how bright and vibrant this nail polish is and just looking it on my nails at the moment makes me dream of the beach!
Guerlain - La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Perfume ($81 / £60)
Ohh my… as soon as I got a little sample of this perfume at Sephora I knew that this is my favorite perfume of all times (apart from Escada Pacific Paradise, which sadly was limited edition *crying*). I am definitely not a fragrance expert but according to Temptalia this iconic Guerlain perfume has notes of black cherry, almond, berries, rose, licorice, black tea, tonka bean, vanilla, and patchouli. I am absolutely obsessed with it and since I unfortunately can’t describe it for you, I just urge you to go sniff it in store because it really is so feminine and elegant and who knows… it might be your new favorite perfume as well! <3
So beauties, these were all products I’ve been absolutely loving during the month of June! I hope you enjoyed this post and have found some new beauty goodies to check out! Please let me know what you’ve been obsessing over for the past month, I need to do a little bit of shopping soon and I’d love to try some new stuff! :)
Lots of love,
