This post is even later than usual as we are now ten days into June, but it just means I have had even more time to test out my current favourite products.
First up, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette this was expensive, but was definitely worth it. The three shades are all really wearable, the texture of the blushes are really light and the powder is fine so you don't get too much product on your brush. This is great for travelling as it gives options to your daily makeup, the palette is not too big and fits perfectly in my travel makeup bag.
The Zoeva 222 All Over Shader featured in my recent Perfect Combination post. It is a great all round brush, as with one swish you are able to cover all the eyelid with a wash of colour. It is a great staple to your brush collection, and I am looking into buying a few more Zoeva brushes as I am have been extremely happy with their quality. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! They fall into the same price range as Real Techniques, as this was £6.99.
This has been my overall 'find' of the month. The Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob has been a perfect addition to my lipsticks. I own two lip liners this, and one from MAC in Subculture which is a pencil. With a pencil I seem to struggle getting colour pay off and I found it quite scratchy on my lips when applying. The Rimmel one is a Amelia Liana must have, she compares it to the Charlotte Tilbury in Pillow Talk. It is a twist up product and the texture of the liner is really smooth and so much easier to apply than a pencil. Many bloggers compare this to MAC Soar which became a must have to get the 'Kylie Jenner lips', and consequently is continuously sold out. This costs just £3.99 which is a third of the price of the MAC liners.
Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Nail polish in Divine Wine, has been on my nails throughout the month of May. It is a great berry purple, and adds a pop of colour to the nails. I love this formula as it really does last beyond anything else I have ever tried. The price of them is just £4.49, and there is a huge array of colours available. The brush is thick and flat which helps to make application a lot easier, and you can apply it quickly when you are on the go.
I keep putting this in posts and then forgetting it is no longer available, but I just cannot stop wearing it. It is the Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso, it came in a set which I got for Christmas and it is unfortunately not available on its own which is very disheartening. It featured in my What's in my Makeup Bag post, as I bring it everywhere with me as it is such a versatile colour. It is a peachy coral, and come the summer I love corals! Last years obsession was MAC Vegas Volt and I think this will take its place. The texture of the Nars lip pencils are very soft, creamy and easy to apply and I love the bullet shaped applicator.
