June Favourites

June favourites has been the hardest one for me, I have been loving so many lovely items/products. I picked alot more than what I'm going to show you but I had to condense them down or you and I would both be here all day!  As I use a lot of makeup on a daily basis I have tried loads of different items this month, four makeup items have been more of a constant than the rest of my collection.

I love lots of Barry M cosmetics items, with their Gelly nail polish range being my favourite. This chunky eyeshadow pencil in shade 01 has been used a lot this month to highlight the inner corner of my eyes. Such a beautiful pearly white, I find it really helps to make my eyes appear brighter and more awake.

Im completely obsessed with cream eyeshadows with Maybelline and Maxfactor being some of my most used. I find them so quick and easy, if I'm in a rush I will use them alone across the whole lid. I have been using this Color tattoo in On and on Bronze none stop alone or as my base. I love bronze and copper shades in everything, and just find this really easy to work with. It blends like a dream, hoping they release more colours soon.

I had always wanted to try more USA brands in cosmetics, with Milani being one of them. So this month I was able to purchase a few Milani products from Amazon, but Beauty Crowd also stock them in the UK now. This Milani Baked Blush in Delizioso pink (10) is gorgeous, gives such a nice glow and pop of colour to the cheeks. I want the shade Luminoso next which looks the perfect shade to go with any look.

Foundation is a really hard one to impress me as I'm so fussy. I'm picky as I'm super pale, oily and have a lot to try and mask/cover up. My normal go to foundation is the No7 beautifully matte in the lightest shade Calico, but even that is slightly too dark. I discovered the new release of Loreal with the Infallible 24hour matte foundation in 10 Porcelain. I was draw to this for the mattifying effect but the colour is a much better match for me than the No7 foundation, not quite as thick coverage but I have still been loving it. It's a rather runny formula and find I do have to use a lot as it doesn't spread out easy, so I don't think my tube will last an over lot longer.

I discovered the brand Patisserie De Bain, which is a UK based company selling the most delicious smelling hand creams you have ever smelt. These can be found in Superdrug or where they sell other amazing items such as bath bombs, cupcake soaps and other luxury items. I have also seen they sell candles but not sure where they stock them as they aren't on there from what I can see. This hand cream Cherry Pie smells.....aaaaamazing, absolutely love it. Best hand cream smell in this world, I would love the other items in this scent. The smell of Cherry and sweet vanilla is just incredible in this luxurious n moisturising hand cream, plus the packaging is super cute. 

After trying the Essie nail polish remover, it dried out n irritated my hands slightly, so I thought I would try some Quickies pads. These were from Superdrug in the minis travel section, they were under 3 for £3 but the offer didn't go through. I'm not sure if this item wasn't in it or the other items I purchased along side them. If I'm good I can get away with one if these pads removing both hands nail polish but normally it takes two. They are convenient to use and I haven't got to worry about spilling a bottle of remover everywhere. They also contain vitamin B5 to help protect the nails.

One of my favourite brands is 7th Heaven (formally known as Montagne Jeunesse) for face masks. So I have included them in this favourites as a company aswell as products. Super affordable, lovely bright packaging, incredible ingredients and work greats for me. I have a massive stash of approx 25 of their masks in my face masks draw at present. 

They have recently released a few new face masks like these Manuka Honey and Tea Tree peel offs. They really help to unclog pores and clear out the skin, removing dead skin cells. I love to apply a mud type 7th Heaven mask while soaking in the bath and remove it with a face cloth when it's ready to be removed. The longer the better I find! My favourite of all time is the Blemish Mud, a thick green formula. I was super sad to see my stash of this one had run out and now I'm on the hunt to find some more.

Super exciting that 7th Heaven have brought a new line to their range, with the hair masks. These are currently available in Asda or on their website. These are a must for anyone who suffers with dry, damaged, weak hair. They give a glorious boost to the hair from root to tip. Amazing value at only £1 each.

Heaven for my feet comes the 7th Heaven smooth heels duo pack. Helps make anyone's feet baby soft with one of my favourite ingredients sweet almond oil and Shea butter. Really gives a boost of hydration to the feet where you simply wash your feet, massage this in and leave on. I find putting a thin pair of socks on afterwards aids the hydration better. Love, love, love all these 7th Heaven items. Im pretty sure I have seen they are attending the Birmingham Clothes Show, if this is true I will be right there at their booth when I attend in December. 

Onto a little bit of fashion. I'm a massive fan of all things rose gold/copper, so when I spotted this gorgeous bracelets in Sainsburys while I was away down south on holidays I had to have them. They were £5 each and I love them.

If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter you will see that I love the company Prairie Charms, super glitz and glam fab products. They made some fabulous glitter bows for me and my daughter in all colours (see my Instagram for more pictures). They are beautiful and had to make it into my favourites. Here is just a small selection from what I ordered and best of all they were only £1.75 each, handmade to order and you can get that offer aswell by quoting #JINKSYBOWS when ordering. Find them on Twitter @Prairie_Charms 

So here is another brand I'm totally in love with, Treacle Moon. Gorgeously fantastic scents! My favourite products are the bath and shower gels, which can be used as regular body wash but also amazing used under warm running water for my baths. They fill the room with the fabulous scents, which are incredible. I have a rather large collection of them and have repurchased when one has run out. Most recent purchases were cocoa heaven and apple pie. These are available at Tesco! Which is your favourite? I think mine is the Cinnamon!

That concludes my rather large favourites, if you made it to the end comment 'Phew!' plus what your favourite item/s were from my selection. I'm still doing surprise giveaways for #JINKSYBEAUTYGIVEAWAY. Make sure you are following my Instagram as I'm so close to 1k now so will be doing a special giveaway for that also.
