June Beauty Favourites NARS Orgasm Illuminator, ESSIE Gel Couture Take Me To Thread, NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Cannes, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder and The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing butter
Can you believe we're already half way through the year!? You may not want to hear it but to me, that just means we're on our way to Autumn & Christmas - my favourite time of the year, eeeek! Anyway let's get back to the present and the so called Summer we're having. Let's be honest it hasn't been that Summery has it? This month I've been embracing the dark nails and lips like I do in the Autumn, I know shoot me now, but let's face it - it's pretty dull outside! On a brighter note, here's what I've been loving this month.

June Beauty Favourites NARS Orgasm Illuminator and The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing butter.
As you may remember from my recent The Body Shop Haul, I finally got round to trying the Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter. I'd like to do a full review on this soon maybe. so I'm not gong to go into too much detail, but basically I love it. It smells gorgeous and so soothing. I've really been enjoying using this and watching the indulgent camomile butter, melt away my makeup and nourish my skin. This really does melt down your makeup, a little goes a long way. It leaves my skin feeling so nourished and cleansed and of course, silky soft.
Although I've been reaching for the darker shades this month, I've still been loving a fierce highlight. I've been using my NARS Orgasm Illuminator to brighten up my face and I've really enjoyed trying this, this month. It's the first liquid illuminator I've really got on with, so of course I need to tell you about it. It's so easy to just dab on and rub in, it doesn't appear streaky or rub of any of my makeup underneath. The formula is so light and easy to apply. The Orgasm shade is gorgeous and peachy with a golden shimmer, it would be perfect if the weather actually brightened up a bit! Still, it's been great for adding a bit of warmth to my look. If you're after the perfect liquid illumintor, you need to try this!

Even though it's supposed to be the Summer, the weather has been a bit dull and grey and I've been embracing the warm dark shades. I know I'm supposed to be wearing bright or pastel nails but I've been leaning towards my new Essie Gel Couture in Take Me To Thread - a warm dark taupe. This gorgeous dark taupe just seems more fitting in these greyer days, but without being too dark and depressing. I've been loving the formula on Essie's new range, they're super shiny and very opaque - I love the colour pay off. For me these last longer than my usual polishes even though I have experienced a little bit of chipping, but my job is very manual so this is to be expected. I'd really recommend trying the Gel Couture range if you love the super shiny gel look.
I've also been embracing the darker lips of course this month. I'm still on my liquid matte lipstick obsession and this month I tried the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Cannes has been my go to this month, it's a beautiful warm peachy nude, so it does have a bit of colour in there for the Summer. I think this shade is just so flattering and fun. The formula is super creamy and surprisingly light, this doesn't dry out my lips even though it gives the lovely matte look we all want. You can see this shade in action in my NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream review
My last favourite of this month has been my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder. I only use this on special occasions because I tend to go a bit over board on the powder and use a lot! I've really been loving this, it's so silky and smooth I really wish I used this everyday. It applies so easily and really gets rid of shine, but still gives me a natural and flawless look. I use this along with my NARS Sheer Glow and it doesn't get rid of the healthy radiant glow this foundation gives me. If you're looking for a high end natural silky powder, give this a go.

I love going through what I've been using each month and I'm excited to see what next month will bring. If you'd like to see last months monthly favourites you can here. What have you been loving this month?
