2016 || June Favourites

Hi Everyone!

I can't believe that June is over. I only have two months left until I have to go back to uni and I'm not looking forward to it at all :( this means that the next two months will consist of many blog posts and days spent at work trying to get myself out of beauty and fashion debts haha! On the other hand, here are some of the products that I've been loving the past month.

I particularly have been loving those products as they are what I think of when someone says 'holiday products', especially the R Cavalli perfume. I've had my Tangle Teezer for a couple of years now I think and there's not been a day that it let me down. I use it religiously on a daily basis and it's great to use on wet hair, especially once you've come out the pool/sea. The Dandelion Shy Beam is probably my favourite matte highlighter of all time. I only bought it a few months ago, probably within the first week of its release and I've been loving it ever since. I think it looks great on with a matte smokey eye so there isn't too much going on. On the other hand, "That Gal" primer was the very first benefit product I fell in love with 7 years ago when I tried it on. It smells amazing and makes my face feel super soft as well as gives me a natural glow. Last but not least, my trusty MAC Eyeshadow Quad. I bought the Pro Palette separately to the refills so I could make my very own small palette. I think you could really work with it and create many looks with using only 4 shadows. My palette includes the shades: Crystal Avalanche, Beauty Marked, Mythology and Cranberry.

What have you been loving in June?

Lots of love,

2015 || June Favourites

Hello Beauty Lovers!
Last month I've been loving everything to do with hair dye! I had three different colours in June - from blonde to grey and then to pink. You can read about my journey with grey hair here. All the products in this post have been bought at Poundworld - yes you are reading this right!!
Firstly, the eylure eyelashes are one of my favourite pairs I have ever bought, and believe me when I say that I've used a lot of pairs in my life! I can't believe they were at my local poundworld!! I will definitely buy more pairs next time I see them. They look great on and feel like feathers as they are very light weight. 

The Jerome Russell lighting spray has actually worked well since the first use. I can see a change in my hair colour and it looks as if I had recently put in some highlights. I would highly recommend this product if you have light hair and are after a balayage effect.

It was the first time I have come across the Kinky Curly Straight brand and I must say that I am beyond impressed with the quality of the conditioner and the ingredients are mostly natural unlike other brands. It has a variety of oils which are good for your hair and full of nutrients. I will definitely buy the whole collection next time.

The Mellors&Russell simply bright hair dye in pink is actually quite effective. I wouldn't say it was amazing and the colour didn't come out as I was expecting, this however could be due to my hair not being light enough, but it's a good product for the price and is worth buying if you already have very light or bleached hair ready for some colour.

On the other hand, their simply bright non permanent colouring conditioner has worked a bit better on my hair leaving it with a nice pinky-peach colour. I have although kept it on for only 5 minutes rather than the recommended 15, so I guess the longer you keep the dye on the better the result. 

Have you tried any of those products? If yes then please mention which ones in comments below!

Lots of love,
