June Favourites



I'm going to be completely honest, I actually forgot it was the start of the month until I saw other bloggers posting their June Favourites! My life's still pretty hectic now that I'm back from Corfu, but I managed to pull together some items I've been loving!

I only started using Yankee candles in May after buying a few of the votives, but I'm already addicted! I love foodie smells, especially the Salted Caramel and Fireside Treats. I bought the tea lights when the Aberdeen store first opened as they didn't have the votives. In Corfu I bought a cute olive wood tealight candle holder with a turtle on it, so I'll be burning them non stop!

I'm probably one of the very few people on this world who isn't a big fan of Real Techniques brushes. I have two of the sets and I only use the Contour Brush! I happened to use it for a catwalk I was working before deciding I preferred it to the flat topped brush I usually go for. It gives a precise application and is soft enough to blend out harsh lines.

It seems like I spend more and more time in MAC. I'm completely enamoured by the lipsticks and although I'm not normally big on the Cremesheen finish, I've replaced my "bag lipstick" with Toying Around from the Playland Collection. I do find I have to give my lips a good scuff as the formula clings to any dry patches. It's quite bright on it's own, or worn on top of a beige lipliner for a more toned down effect.

Another MAC product I've discovered this month is the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. I kindly got a sample from the store and even though I've only used it a couple of times, I can already see how effective it is. It's quite abrasive but lathers a little and starts to emulsify to cleanse the face. As I have an oily skin type I get visibly clogged pores, which are almost completely cleared out after one use. 

What have you been reaching for most this month? Have you been trying new products for summer?
