Current Beauty favourites - June

Friday, 27 June 2014

The sun is out so it means I've been reaching for the bottle - of fake tan that is! I haven't really had a chance to do any proper sunbathing yet, but this hot weather calls for getting your pins out so instead of blinding people with my paleness I have been using the Vita Liberata self tan mousse* This particular tan has a really dark guide colour which I love, it means I can guarantee I don't miss any spots! Even though this tan can be washed off after 1, 2 or 3 hours, out of habit I have just been using it over night. It gives me a lovely sunkissed glow, the perfect way to fake it!

Along with the nicer weather, I swear I am getting hayfever. I've never had it before but I have found my eyes feeling a bit irritated and watery. That is where the Liz Earle Eyebright soothing lotion comes in. It has been an absolute saviour! Just popping some of this on 2 cotton pads, then relaxing with them on my eyes makes a world of difference. My eyes feel so refreshed and the irritation goes. Definitely a product all hayfever suffers should try. Obviously its not a permanent fix, but it's nice for your eyes to feel back to normal for a little bit!

I've also been trying to use more of my samples, my most reached for product has been this sample blush from Lancome in Rose Paradis. It's a very bright pink that only needs the slightest amount on your brush to give you a lovely rosey glow. I didn't think I would be a fan of such a bright blusher but it's so nice. I'd even contemplate buying the full size version if I use this one up! The staying powder is really good too, even in this hot weather we are having. 

My final favourite is the L'Oreal Liquid lipstick in Rose Melody. I actually went to look for the shade Nude Ballet which Kim Kardashian apparently wore on her wedding day to Kanye West, but I decided that shade wasn't for me. Rose Melody however is a gorgeous every day pink which I have found myself reaching for nearly every day. The colour payoff is really good, they have a lovely melon (?) scent, the glossiness lasts a decent amount of time and they arent sticky at all. L'oreal products are also on 3 for 2 in boots at the moment. I should pop in and grab a few other shades! 

What products have you been enjoying during June?

Much love, 


  1. I have been meaning to try one of L'oreal liquid lipsticks and this colour looks lovely! xx

  2. Hi Leanne, I sent you an email about advertising with you for the month of July but I haven't had a reply- can I arrange this through here? Many thanks :)

  3. I always leave my tan on overnight! I don't feel I've developed enough after only a few hours! Although it sure does make my room smell nice and biscuity! I have a Vita Liberata tan as well and they really give such a beautiful colour without having to layer it on for five days straight! Each time I go into Boots I lust over the new Nude Liquid Lipsticks... I'm gonna have to buy one if Kimmy is supposedly sporting it!

  4. I absent mindedly swatched one of those l'oreal lipsticks on my hand today and then realised a few hours later that it was still there! So so impressed!

  5. I've been looking for a new tan to try for quite a while now. This one sounds quite perfect for what I'm looking for.

  6. I saw the L'oreal lipsticks and thought they looked interesting :)

  7. I've yet to find a Loreal lip product I've enjoyed but I might give this a go.
