June Favourites!

I regret that this month my favourites may be a bit boring!   I hardly bought any make-up this past four weeks (Thank God!) and mostly stuck to the same old make-up routine and used what I know what looks good on me.

MAC Strada Blush – I’ve heard that this has been discontinued? I hope not as this is my favourite contour blush colour.  I’m writing a proper review about this later in the week so stay tuned to find out exactly what I think about it!

MAC Select Cover up NC15 – I’ve found recently that I can get away with just wearing a touch of Studio Finish concealer, and I use this under my eyes or on spots if I need to, and I just adore this.  Its so hard for me to find pale concelears or foundations and this is the perfect colour for my skin, it has perfect coverage and blends really well when just using your finger!

The Body Shop eye shadow in 42 Midnight Blue– One of the newest TBS eye shadow shades, I believe this is being re-promoted with the Fall Trend range, but its a beautiful dark, navy blue black eye shadow.  Great pigmentation, good staying power, lasts ages, just perfect!

Lush Honey I shrunk the kids solid perfume – My favourite ‘special’ perfume… You know, the one you always wear on a date/night out/when you want to impress.  I adore the fragrance and I think the guys do too!  I always always wear this on a date and add a dab behind my ears and on my neck to lure the fellows in.  I’ll probably do a proper review on this soon as well in a favourite perfume post!

Sleek Ink Pot – You can find my recent review about this product (HERE!), it explains all!

Sudocrem – I was an idiot this month, and a few days ago I enjoyed a sweet few hours in my local pub’s roof garden with my housemate, without any sunscreen on, in just shorts and a vest top.  Needless to say, my milky white skin turned a shade comparable to a lobster shell.  Its my own fault!  Anyway, I dug out my Sudocrem and slapped it all over my body before bed and my burns had nearly faded by the morning!  It took the pain away and moisturized my skin better than an after sun would, I believe.  I swear I have a tub of this miracle stuff in every room of my house, I use it on spots, sun burn, eczema and its a life saver on minor burns – I’m so clumsy and burn my hand in the kitchen at least once a week, and I always slap this on the burn and it takes the pain away!  It’s very affordable, I think about £3 a tub which will last forever and its a mixed use product which I love.

Cherry Chapstick – My carmex from last month wasn’t doing its job properly so I went back to my trusty old faithful cherry chapstick which has made my lips juicy-luscious!

Any dupes for Strada that you know of?  And what’s your favourite ‘special’ perfume fragrance??!

  1. It's true. MAC Strada has been discontinued! I don't know of any dupes, but somewhere I read that MAC Quarry eyeshadow could be used (even though it's slightly plummy, apparently it can be blended out & no one will notice.) I've read many good things about Sudocrem, but I live in the states where it's not sold. Hello Ebay :)

  3. Great post! I swear by Sudocrem too! Such a lifesaver. And I never find Carmex that good? I love the smell and want to believe it's doing something for my lips but it never actually does. Just coats them.
    Love the look of that eyeliner stuff, will have to nip in my local Superdrug later and take a peek! I actually bought Shout magazine the other month because it came with a pot of eyeliner and a brush but I opened it and it was so dry that it actually pulled the bristles out of the crappy brush that came with it. FAIL. :)

  4. My favourite "special" fragrance is Black Orchid by Tom Ford. It's expensive but it always comes out on special nights out and never fails to make me smile. It's just the most divine smell in the world ever.

    And Sudocream is the best :) x

  5. I tried Sudocrem once by slathering it on my face- but it just stayed there and wouldn't come off! Had to really scrub! Maybe it was an old tub as everyone else raves about it! x
