June Favourites 2017

The months are flying by and it’s time for another favourites post. I’m loving doing these posts, as I’m finding that it challenges me to use different products, so my posts aren’t filled with the same things.

Urban Decay | Naked Heat

Ever since I got my hands on this, I have been loving creating different looks. Before this palette I had never really experimented with reds, and I have no idea why! I find this palette is amazing for creating looks for during the day, as it is really easy to keep it simple, but then it is just as easy to get a dark smokey eye. These colours are perfect for Summer, and I’ve loved switching it up from the classic bronze/ gold.

Too Faced | Melted Chocolate Milkshake

This has been the lipstick, that I have been reaching for after using the Naked Heat palette. It is a warm toned peachy nude, that is perfect to wear with stronger eye makeup. I wouldn’t say this is particularly hydrating, as it dries my lips out after a few hours of wear. When first applied it looks a little glossy, but it soon dries down to a Satin finish.

Β The Balm | Mary-Lou Manizer

This is a product that I haven’t worn in ages, as I was too busy buying other highlighters and testing them out. Once the spending ban set in, and I sorted through my makeup; I pulled this from the back of the draw to use more often. It is such a classic, and a product that everybody seems to love. It is such a gorgeous light champagne with no chunks of glitter. It can be used for a subtle sheen or built up for a blinding look.

Spectrum | Tall Tapered Blender B06

I’ve had this brush for a while, and I can’t believe I’ve never spoken about it before. I’ve been after that ‘perfect’ blending brush, that is perfect for the crease and for blending, but had no luck. Until this brush, honestly I use it every time I do my makeup, as it’s perfect for building colour up, as well as blending it out. I have the one from ‘The Bombshell’ Collection, but you can buy it singly in a different colour. (Which I am about to do)

MAC | Fix+

I have been using this so much lately, especially during the heat wave, as it’s great for a refresher. If you have dry skin then I could not recommend this enough! I use this over makeup, if my face is starting to look a little dry. I wouldn’t say it’s a setting spray, as it’s a little too refreshing. This has been everywhere with me just lately!

As I’m struggling to think of anything else I am going to leave it there! No random food favourites from me this month I’m afraid!

What have you been loving throughout June?

Thank you for reading!

    All of these products sound amazing! The Mary Lou is one of my favourite highlighters ever; one I can rely on all the time. And of course, the Urban Decay palette looks beautiful. x Nikita

    Lovely post! The Naked Heat has been everywhere this month and looks amazing, I’m so disappointed I didn’t manage to get it but certainly will be when it’s officially released! The Fix+ is a favourite of mine too, so refreshing which is exactly what we need this month! X

    I’ve never tried anything from The Balm before but this has just reminded me that someone I know used to recommend the Mary-Lou Manizer all the time – might have to give it a go! Sophie xxx


    • 2nd July 2017 / 11:12 pm

    Spectrum blending brushes are amazing! I feel like I need to buy a couple more because of how much I like I like it! I can’t get over the beauty that is the UD heat palette


    • 3rd July 2017 / 12:02 pm

      They definitely are! Buying more of them is such a good idea! It is such a beautiful palette!xx

  10. 3rd July 2017 / 4:14 am

    Your Mary Lou-Manizer looks barely touched! It’s one of my favourite highlighters and it’s what I’d always recommend to people new to highlighting. I’ve had mine for years and it’s nowhere near hitting pan!

    • 3rd July 2017 / 12:04 pm

      It’s a new one, you can see in my review of the product I did last year that I hit pan, and I managed to use it up, so I started using my new one! It is definitely the best highlighter, and it does last a long time too!xx

  11. 3rd July 2017 / 8:09 am

    I can’t believe I still haven’t bought the Mary Lou Highlighter! I really need to add the gorgeous product to my collection! xx

    • 3rd July 2017 / 12:04 pm

      Definitely recommend giving it a go, it is such a classic highlight!xx

  12. 3rd July 2017 / 9:31 am

    I bought the MAC fix + ages and ages ago and I haven’t used it in the past couple of months but you’ve definitely reminded me that I need to use it again. Your photos are so beautiful

      It’s something that I forgot about, but in the heatwave it was an essential! Thank you so much, I’ve been putting a lot of effort into improving them!xx

  13. 3rd July 2017 / 10:47 am

      Fix+ was such a lifesaver during the heatwave! It is such a good palette! No problem, thank you for reading!xx

    • 3rd July 2017 / 12:40 pm

      It really is a gorgeous palette!xx

      It really is a gorgeous palette! They’re so good aren’t they?! Ah you really need to, the highlighter is everything!xx

  16. 3rd July 2017 / 7:20 pm

    Loved this post Hannah! Ah your killing me with the Heat palette I cannot deal with how gorgeous it is! Also really need to try out the Mac Fix+ been wanting to for ages.

      Thank you so much Megan! It really is a beautiful palette! It’s so good for Summer, I hope you manage to get it!xx

  17. 3rd July 2017 / 7:35 pm

    Would love to see some looks you’ve done with the Naked Heat palette! Fix+ has been my saviour too, Superdrugs Vitamin E mist is such a good dupe for it aswell but it comes out a bit more heavy and full on than MAC so you have to make sure to spray it further away otherwise you soak yourself haha!

    • 4th July 2017 / 2:35 pm

      I struggle so much with taking photos of makeup, definitely need to get better; yours are so good! Ah it sounds so good, thank you for the recommendation!xx

  18. 3rd July 2017 / 7:44 pm

    Love the clear images and descriptions in your post!
    How do you feel you blending brush compares to the MAC 125 brush?

    The Heba

    • 4th July 2017 / 2:37 pm

      Thank you so much, I’m glad you like them! I’ve not tried the 125, but I’ve got the 217 and I use the 217 to blend only, where as the Spectrum one is great for blending and for building a colour up and using it as a transition or through the crease! Hope that helps xx

    3rd July 2017 / 8:51 pm

    The spectrum brush sounds really good, I think good blending brushes always come in handy! I also want to try one of the too faced liquid lipsticks. For those hot days, I like going in with either the freedom primer water or the balance me toning mist just to refresh and create a nice base for my makeup πŸ™‚ xx

    Velvet Blush

    • 4th July 2017 / 2:40 pm

      That’s true, you can’t beat a good blending brush! The Too Faced lipsticks are one of my favourite lipstick formulas! I must give them a go, thank you for the recommendation!xx

  20. 3rd July 2017 / 10:21 pm

    I love my Naked 3 Palette so am keen to get hold of the heat one soon! They seem to last forever x

    • 4th July 2017 / 4:46 pm

      They really do! I’m finding it so hard to hit pan on any of the other Naked Palettes!xx

  21. 3rd July 2017 / 11:19 pm

    Everyone raves about the MAC Fix and Prime.
    However I would never have thought to spritz with it.
    I would probably use it before makeup!
    Thanks for your tips!

    • 4th July 2017 / 4:47 pm

      They really do! It is good to use before makeup too, as it’s refreshing and sort of preps your face! No problem, thank you for reading!xx

  22. 3rd July 2017 / 11:52 pm

    The naked heat palette looks stunning! The Too Faced nude looks like such a pretty color to pair with the shades from the palette as well xx Brynn


    • 4th July 2017 / 4:50 pm

      It is such a pretty palette! It is such a great nude to go with those colours!xx

  23. 4th July 2017 / 9:00 am

    The new UD palette looks so good, seriously tempted! I love the look of that Spectrum brush too, it’s a shame the brushes in that colour aren’t available individually though

      It is such a gorgeous palette! It really is, but I suppose it’s to get you to buy the collection which is a shame!xx
