Another month has come to an end and you know what this means – a post filled with some of my most-loved beauty products, with which I’ve been bonding for the past few weeks. There is a divine smelling cologne in the picture, as well as some fab budget-buy discoveries, a lovely peachy lip balm and lovely golden eye shadow. Wanna hear more? Then without further ado let’s dive into my June favorites!
Jo Malone is my heaven! I absolutely adore their candles and colognes and when it comes to summer fragrances I am sorted thanks to their beautiful White Jasmine & Mint Cologne (here). This is not your typical sweet scent and that’s exactly what I love about it. It smells super fresh and clean but has a certain sharpness to it, which makes it stand out from all my other perfumes. The scent reminds me of a garden in a warm summer morning and the just-crushed mint notes add to the whole fresh feel. The cologne has a lovely blend of jasmine, lily, orange flower and rose. Go give it a little sniff and you may find your new best friend.
Speaking of best friends, one thing that I had to mention is my latest skincare discovery. It is from The Body Shop and comes in the form of their new Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil (here). I banged on about it here but to put it in one word that would have to be game changer. Not only this won’t break the bank but it also makes the skin absolutely beautiful. Slap this on at night and wake up with virtually new skin – radiant, brighter, softer and more even. Get involved!
Another inexpensive discovery, which completely sold me with the first application is this gorgeous Delice de Soleil Bronzing Powder by Bourjois (here). This baby is the perfect mix of warm and cool tones and makes my pale skin very happy. It doesn’t lean orange or too muddy and just adds warmth to my complexion in one go. The bronzer has teeny tiny shimmer particles in it but they just help brighten up the skin and are nothing crazy. Delice de Soliel has been my bronzer of choice when I want to look all bronzy and sun-kissed. I just dust it on the highest points of my face and I love how naturally tanned it makes me look. This easy-to-apply powder also has SPF 15 and applies like a breeze. Oh and it smells like cocoa – yum.
Pretending to be a ‘golden goddess’ is one of my favorite summer activities, tell me I’m not the only one haha. To help me with that I dug out my beloved MAC Woodwinged eye shadow (here). This warm ‘antique’ brown with golden shimmer running through it is everything I need to put on my eyes if I want to channel my inner sun-kissed self. I adore the way Woodwinged catches the light and makes my green eyes pop – it’s just wonderful. Speaking of MAC, needless to say that the formula also gets big thumbs up from me and you can read all about it and see swatches here.
We all know how great the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks are so telling you that I had rediscovered my love shade #13 Peach Passion (here) won’t come as a surprise. Stunning bright peach with coral undertones and beautiful hydrating and uber creamy formula – that’s all I have to say. It’s love and I’ve been wearing it loads recently!
I like peaches and I like daiquiri so it was only fair to completely fall in love with Essie Peach Daiquiri (review here). I can’t get over the gorgeous bright peachy coral – it’s just the perfect summer shade. I’ve been rocking it both on my fingernails and toes in June and the amount of compliments I got says it all. The formula is also spot on so if you are on a hunt for a new nail lacquer for the upcoming summer parties – look this way!
Have you tried any of these products before? Which was the one product that you have been loving in June?
