June 2012 Beauty Favourites

Sorry this months favourites is a tad late I couldn't find my camera charger, ridiculous excuse I know, but unfortunately it's true lol. So here we are, a few beauty products that I used and loved for the month of June.

Laura Mercier Shimmer Brick in Peach Mosaic
Mac Costa Chic Lipstick
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfect Concealer:
This concealer was a life saver while I was on holiday, it was way too hot for me to wear foundation and even tinted moisturiser some days, so instead I just applied this to the areas of my face that needed a bit of coverage. It was amazing, it's so inexpensive, I definitely recommend trying this if you're going on holiday this summer.

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in RSVP:
This is pretty much the only eye-shadow I wore this month which you can probably tell by the small dip in the jar, it's so easy to apply, you just sweep it on and you're done, it has really good staying power, so you don't need to set it with a powder eyeshadow.

Mac Costa Chic Lipstick:
You might have seen this lipstick in my latest face of the day post and I can't stop wearing it. It's the most perfect coral that really flatters my skintone, it's not too orange and it doesn't dry your lips out, what more can you ask for. Oh and it's in the permanent line.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir:
I'm sorry if you're sick and tired of hearing about this product, originally I wasn't going to mention it, but this post is about favourite products and I used this everyday on holiday. I like to use it before I apply my moisturiser, I find it really refreshes my skin and calms down any redness. It is quite expensive for what it is, but I love the smell, so what can you do.

Laura Mercier Shimmer Brick in Peach Mosaic:
Ok so technically I've not had this highlighter for the whole month but it's too gorgeous to not be mentioned. I plan on doing a separate post with swatches soon, but it's one of the most stunning peach/gold highlighters I've ever used.

St Tropez Gradual Tanner:
I've been using this self tanner to just keep my limbs looking slightly human-like. If you're after an immediate tan this one isn't for you but if you want to develop a nice subtle colour, it's definitely the one. Plus it keeps your skin lovely and soft.

Essie Tarte Deco Nail Polish:
This colour had been on my toes for the last 4 weeks and and it's just showing signs of chipping, it lasted amazingly well. I also love the new formula with the wider brush, it makes application so much easier. I think Essie is fast becoming my favourite nail polish brand. Watch out OPI & Models Own lol.

Let me know what you've been loving this month?

XOXO Claire
