It’s crazy but another month has already passed by just like that. June has been quite eventful for me. I spent the first week of June in Chicago, had two weeks to study for my finals when I came back and then I had all my finals and now I’m basically done with Uni until September unless I have to re-take an exam (hopefully not). Despite being busy with revision there’s still been a bunch of stuff that I’ve been loving this month, so let me share them with you guys!
Let’s start with makeup.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
I just recently bought this while in Chicago, so I guess it’s just naturally that I’ve been using it a ton this month. I really like it because you can create so many different looks with this and I’m so glad I did buy it.
Astor Big & Beautiful Lovely Doll Eye Opening Mascara Attractive Black
Okay, I have no idea what kind of person came up with this incredibly annoying long name but despite its awful name I’ve been absolutely loving this mascara recently. I had tried it out a while ago and kind of forgot about it but I re-discovered it this month and since then I’ve been basically using it daily. It gives really long and pretty doll lashes just like the name already promises. The only downside is that the wand always picks up a lot of product ( a little too much) so you have to watch out or otherwise you get mascara everywhere but if you use it carefully this will give you some amazing results for a really affordable price.
Mac Relentlessly Red
This one is another of my Chicago purchases. When I went to the Mac store I knew I wanted to buy Rebel and Diva ( which I did) and then I kind of wanted to swatch a few lipsticks and just buy one I liked. One of my friends I made in Holland is just as obsessed with makeup as me and we went a little crazy in the Mac store swatching a bunch of lipsticks. Relentlessly Red stood out to both of us, which is why I ended up getting it. I’m really glad I did because it turned out to be a perfect summer red. I’ve actually written a review about it, so if you are interested in reading more just click right HERE.
Maybelline Matt Maker Powder
This powder has been a big surprise for me. Originally I wanted to buy Rimmel’s Stay Matte powder because I’d run out of my mine but it was sold out in my shade, so I opted for this. Turns out I absolutely love it and this will be a definite repurchase. As you might be able to tell from the picture I’ve already used it up quite a bit.

Let’s move on to the skin stuff.
Garnier Ambre Solaire Golden Protect
The sun’s been coming out a lot more this month (Thank God) and since I’m quite pale I always make sure to use enough sunscreen because I don’t like to end up looking like a lobster. Besides sunburns just hurt horribly and the thought of my skin starting to peel off just makes me cringe. So no thanks to sunburns. I rather stay pale then turn red. I like this sunscreen because it has enough SPF to prevent sunburns but it’s not so high that there’s no chance of getting a tan at all. Plus it’s shimmery. Oh yes, it has little shimmer particles, which gives your skin a shimmery glow. If you don’t like being shimmery hands off!
Garnier Ambre Solaire Natural Bronzer
Since I’m pale and don’t want to look like I’m ill next to all of my friends, who for some reason tend to tan much easier than me I go for a bit of a fake tan. I don’t use it massively because I know it just looks weird on me. But I do mix a bit of this with my regular body lotion to get a bit of a tan. Just a tiny one ;)
Garnier Body Ultimate Beauty Oil
Yes, I’m guilty. I’m guilty of letting a commercial influence me to buy something. Okay so I’m quite the fan of Garnier’s hair oil and when I saw a commercial for their new body oil it just made me think hey.. if their hair oil is this good their body oil must be as well. You can probably guess the next part.. next time I went to a store I bought it. It hasn’t disappointed me though. I really like this. It smells great, feels good on my skin and it has made my skin a lot healthier looking. Plus it gives you a bit of a nice summer glow.
Last but not least here are just some random favorite things.
Victoria’s Secret Love Spell Fragrance Mist
This smells amazing and lasts surprisingly long for a body mist. Love love love it!
EOS Lip Balm
I have to admit I a little obsessed with these. They smell amazing. They look amazing. They just are amazing. Period.
Dutch Strawberry Wine Gums
I’m not big on wine gums but these might be my new favorite candy. These are sooooo good! And the best thing they are completely free of animal substances. They only use natural flavors and ingredients to make these, which you can definitely taste! I’m obsessed right now.
That’s it already for my June favorites. What have you been loving this month?
