June Favourites

Pandora Ring, Cath Kidston Bag, 'Lipcote', MUA Eyeshadow Palette, Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, Primark Bunny Purse.

I was a little stuck for ideas for my second post, but as June is coming to an end I thought it would be nice to share a few things I have been loving this month. Originally, I was going to do a 'My Week In Outfits' post as I was in Kent doing work experience but I was so busy! I might try to incorporate a few of the clothes I wore into an outfit of the day post sometime soon..
Silver Pandora Flower Band Ring
I bought this at the beginning of the month whilst on a shopping trip in Highcross Leicester. After pining for one of these rings for months, I finally decided to get one. I was pleasantly surprised by how affordable the rings were, mine was £30.00! I love how you can combine different styles of rings and stack them on your fingers (a combination of gold and silver looks so nice!). They're perfect if you want to give someone a bit of a different gift!

Primark Bunny Coin Purse
I also bought this purse at the beginning of June, it was a bargain at £3.00 in Primark. It's just so cute and reminds me of the Marc Jacobs animal style ballet pumps. Although, my boyfriend doesn't agree, he is embarrassed every time I take it out of my bag!

Lipcote Lipstick Sealer

I love love love loooove this! I was sent it after entering the Glamour Magazine May giveaway and it hasn't left my makeup bag since! You just apply your lipstick as normal, then slick Lipcote over the top, leaving you with smudge proof lipstick that really lasts. I think you can buy it in Superdrug for three or four pounds.

MUA Eyeshadow Palette

I can't rave enough about MUA products, they're so affordable and such good quality. This 'Undress me too' palette was only £4.00, yet is a complete dupe of Urban Decay's 'Naked' palettes which retail at around £30.00! There's a gorgeous selection of natural matte and shimmer shades, which create beautiful day and night looks. You need this in your life!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
Having been a devoted 'Elf' brush fan since the day I started being interested in makeup, it was a big step branching out my brush collection into another brand. I questioned whether the 'Real Technique' brushes were really worth the hype, but I thought I would give them a try anyway. The expert face brush is the first brush I have used from Samantha Chapmans range, and I am definitely going to be purchasing more. This brush buffs my foundation perfectly into my skin, leaving me with a light airbrushed finish. I love the aesthetics of these brushes and you can instantly tell that they're good quality. Be prepared to see more of these brushes in my favourites!
Cath Kidston Floral Carry All Bag
I purchased this bag for £20.00 in the Cath Kidston sale in May, it was the perfect size for carrying all of my folders whilst I was still at sixth form. I find that it adds the perfect amount of 'summer' to an outfit, as the weather has been rubbish lately I have been reluctant to wear bright floral tops for fear of looking like a muppet in the rain!

  1. I love Pandora jewelry! It's gorgeous. I've been wanting to try the Real Techniques brushes for forever. Do you recommend I get the Expert Face Brush first, or a different one? Nice post! xo


    1. Thank you! I had been wanting to try them for so long too! I would recommend the Expert Face Brush, it's just so nice to use! Although the Core Face Collection is definitely next on my list!
