June Favourites

Hi beautiful followers,
It's time for the June fave =) I can not believe June is over but am excited July is here. That means just one more  month before vacation and that's something to look forward to. I want to share with you some of my June favourites. There is a bit of make up, hair care, nail polish and a few other random things. Apologies for this being such a long post. =)
1. Starting with eyeshadow this is the palette I used for most of this month(from left to right we have MAC Mythology, Cranberry, Honey lust and Twinks). These colors are so vibrant, shimmery, and warm which makes them perfect for summer months. I don't like wearing any dark colors during summer months unless going out at night.

2. The world has 1.8million mascaras and I have tried 1.79million of them. No, not really but that's what it feels like. I love mascara and have tried a bunch. MAC does not do the best mascara, but I really love and would recommend their Plush Lash mascara especially during the summer months because it gives fluttery full sexy lashes without any clumps. You have to know how to work this though as the brush is very different. You have to sort of zigzag it thru the lashes and be patient with it. The result is worth it. In my opinion this the most natural yet dramatic mascara on the market.

3. I love pink especially during summer time so the lips have been pink all this month with a couple of exceptions. For a good part of June I have worn Shu Uemura PK 320M paired with MAC cremesheen glass in Fashion Scoop. I love Shu Uemura and am so sad that they are leaving the US. We'll only be able to purchase their products online. This lipstick is "playboy mansion" pink. It's super pink and it's not one you can just slap on. I have to tab this on and then use a gloss on top.

4. My hair is colored and I use a bit of heat on it. Protecting it and making sure that it's in perfection condition is very important to me. To protect it against damage I use Moroccan Oil. This is not just a June fave. This is a holy grail hair product for me. It lives my hair manageable, soft and healthy without any of the bad chemicals that some other hair products have. I heart Moroccan Oil. I also use their shampoo and conditioners too.

5. This isn't really a June favorite but more of a summer months favorite. During summer I love to wear OPI "Mod About You" nail polish. It's a baby pink with soft lilac undertone. This and Metro Chic are my favorite nail polishes of all time, and when a nail polish junkie picks favorite, that's really saying something. This polish isn't perfect though. It needs two coat and the first has to be very light; otherwise it streaks.

6. The perfume of the month has been Juicy Couture "Viva La Juicy". The notes are: Wild Berries, Mandarins, Honeysuckle, Gardenia, Jasmine, Amber, Caramel, Vanilla, Sandalwood, Praline. This translates to sweet, girly and very summery. Sweet smells aren't for everyone though but I love it.
7. Green Tea. I love green tea. It has several health benefits and I won't go on details about that now but here is one that I have been drinking a lot lately. It has a soft note of Jasmine in it and it's organic. It's delic.

8. My favourite book so far this summer has been the latest Sophia Kinsella book in "20's girl" Very light and fun to read.

These are my June favourites. What are yours? Have you tried any of these products?
