June Favorites

Hello everybody,

Today I’m going to be sharing with you all my favourite products of the month of June. I don’t have that many products to share with you all this month, considering it was a rather unremarkable month for me.

Makeup

My favourite makeup products of this month will be two lip products. Both of which come from ColourPop cosmetics. If you have read my May Favorites, then you will know that recently I have been dabbling in the world of lipsticks which I have never done in the past.

The first ColourPop lip product is from their ultra glossy lip range and is the shade ‘Up Do’. It’s a lovely peach shade which is perfect for a very subtle look and gives the lips a natural looking shine.  Honestly pair this lip with a nice light pink shimmer shade and you have the perfect spring time look right there.

The next ColourPop lip product is from their ultra satin lip collection in the shade prim. It is a lovely ruby red shade which I have been loving to death. It gives off that really sexy vampy look which I have been obsessed with and have always wanted to do. The only negative I would give this product which I try not to let bother me is that their staying power is not that amazing, as it does slip when I unconsciously wipe at my lips with my hand.

Skincare

My only skincare favourite would be this cleanser from Sukin. It is from their ‘Derma Sukin’ range which is great for sensitive skin and has a very mild and gentle formula. In addition, after using this product it has an instant brightening effect which gives the face a radiant glow. Also, i love how Sukin products are effective and cost affordable.

That’s it guys, that is the end of my blog post. I hope you guys enjoyed reading it. I know it was very short, but i promos next months one will be longer. Also please show support to the YouTube version of my June Faves, it would mean the world to me.

May Favorites

Hello my lovelies,

Today I’m going to be sharing with you guys my favorite products of the month of May, so let us get started!

Makeup

So this month I decided to try something new and I started dabbling with lipsticks. Normally lipsticks never took my fancy simply because I never thought they looked good on me, but I’ve been experimenting with different shades to see which would suit me. For this month I’ve been loving ‘3ina’s The Longwear Lipstick in 502’, it is a beautiful matte pink shade with hints of a purple base. I love the fact that this lipstick doesn’t smudge and the lip gloss style applicator makes it easier to apply. Also a little extra the lipstick literally smells like chocolate and I love it, it’s better than smelling like chemicals!

Beauty

Recently I have actually stopped using shampoo and actually started using bicarbonate soda instead. I won’t get too deep into this change of regime. as I’ll talk about it another time. Anyway, one of the things that I have recently invested in has been the ‘Face Shop’s Cherry Blossom hair mist’. I have used this product in the past and I was not really a fan of it, but I decided to give it one more try and it has become one of my favourite products. Before I only thought that it just made my hair smell nice, but it also gives my hair a long lasting shine which I have been loving.

Another beauty favourite of mine would be these ‘Kink-Free Spiral hair ties’. My hair is weird and ties itself into knots a lot especially when I used traditional hair ties and I found that they also tugged on my hair a lot and would be very painful. You wouldn’t think these spiral hair ties would be  effective in putting hair into a ponytail, but it has been amazing

I hope you guys have enjoyed reading this post and that May treated you all well. To be honest for me May was a little rough considering it is getting colder here in Australia, so getting out of bed is harder. I’ve been buried under stacks of homework and tests which have also caused me to experience a lot of stress. But hey May is gone and a new month has arrived, lets hope it’ll treat me and you all better. Also, I would love it if you guys checked out my YouTube video on my May favorites.

April Favourites 2017|Beauty, Accessories, and Books 

Hello my lovelies,

Today I’m going to be sharing with you my favourite items during the month of April. These items are quite varied and fall across a range of different categories from beauty, accessories, and books.

Cosmetics

3ina-The 3in1 Foundation 

I love how this product acts as not only a foundation but a primer and a concealer. The only negative I would give this product would have to be that the coverage is not as high as I would want it to be around my under eyes. However it does a great job at covering my acne scars.

Rimmel-Stay Matte Pressed Powder

I was very surprised with this product when I first bought it. Not only is it cheap but it does an amazing job at making my face matte and making sure my foundation stays in place and does not slide. What’s more it is long-lasting and controls shine and oil. I only have high praise for this product and I highly recommend that you guys buy it.

Accessories

Kitsch Place-Silver Statment Earrings 

Recently I have been really loving statement earrings especially cool toned ones. However, I didn’t want anything too flashy and these earrings caught my eye. They are a nice silver colour with a simplistic geometric design. The layering of the two shapes catch the eye, but are too flashy which I love. What’s more I love how these earrings are handmade and they’re not as expensive as I expected them to be considering they were handmade. Because this store is a small business they don’t have a website so I just put a link to their Instagram.

Hoskings-Crystal Hoop Earrings

Here is another pair of earrings that I have been obsessed with during April which my Mum gave to me. They are a lovely rose gold colour and are very simple and subtle. I like how unlike the larger hoop earrings they don’t get caught in my hair, nor do I accidently pull on them when I’m brushing my hair with my fingers and I forget that I’m wearing hoop earrings. I couldn’t directly link you guys to the earrings because they weren’t on the site, so instead I just linked you guys to the Hoskings website in the earrings category.

Books

Haruki Murakami-Norwegian Wood

Haruki Murakami is a Japanese author and is one of my favourites. One of my life goals is to actually read all of the books that he publishes. I am obsessed with his style of writing, I love how when I read his stories it all seems to flow and there is no sudden fast motions forward, which isn’t a bad thing but not something I like when reading books. If I were to describe the process of reading his books it would be like floating across a body water. Norwegian Wood is an amazing book which talks about young love and loneliness and how they intertwine. Also on a side note about the book and possible spoiler (maybe) I am in love with Midori and her positivity and just her presence in general everytime she showed up in the novel I couldn’t help but smile.

I hope you guys enjoyed reading this blog post and if you want to see a photo of BTS’s J-Hope I sugguest you check out the YouTube video of my April favourites.
