July already, which can only mean one thing... June favourites, no surprises though, I'm late again!

Throughout June, I started to use Rimmel Stay Matte Powder again... after falling in love with it last year, and using it religiously I strayed a little, and realised that I shouldn't have bothered trying anything different. This stuff really is the best dupe for Mac's Natural MSF's and I just love the finish it gives to my skin, it's not cakey, it's not too matte (even though the name says it is), it actually leaves my skin looking quite fresh and glowy (when used lightly) and my foundation always stays in place when I use this to set it.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is a product that I bought when I strayed from my ever faithful Collection concealer, but with this one, I'm glad I experimented a little. This is quite similar to the Collection one, but it's not as thick, which I definitely prefer, it's also really buildable, and I've found myself going out wearing just this and some powder, which is something I wouldn't usually do, so it must be good!

Body Shop Beautifying Oil is my new favourite oil... it's an all-round, body, hair, face oil which is really handy, and it's the Chocomania scented one, which is my favourite Body Shop scent ever, I love smelling of chocolate! I do really love this in my hair, but I love it even more on my body. I apply the tiniest amount (which goes a really long way) to my arms and legs, and it leaves me not only smelling good enough to eat, but feeling super smooth and hydrated. I'd really recommend these to anyone with dry skin, and if the chocolate scent isn't your thing, there are plenty more to choose from.

I'm kind of disappointed that I love the Lush Twilight Shower Gel so much, because it's a seasonal product, which means you can only get it at Christmas time. I've almost used it all up too :( Sad times! Nevertheless it's such an amazing smell, I can't help but constantly reach for it at the moment. It's got lavender in it, which I'm not a fan of, so I didn't expect to like it as much as I do, but it's also got malt in it, which balances out the lavender to give the most amazing, relaxing smell... if you've never smelt this, you really need to, so hopefully it will be back in December!

Essie Cute As A Button is the prettiest colour, and one of my favourite summery shades ever. It's the perfect pinky coral that I've spent a long time searching for. I'm still not a big fan of Essie as a brand though, I find that it chips so, so quickly, which is sad because they do some stunning polishes. With this one though, I love it enough to put up with the chipping, it's nothing a good base and top coat won't solve.

Although I featured the L'oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution in last month's favourites, I just had to include it again. I continue to be super impressed with this, and the fact that it doesn't effect my oh so sensitive skin in any way - no breakouts, no soreness... just clean, fresh feeling skin. I loveeee it! I've never tried Bioderma, so I don't know how it compares, but I don't feel the need to try, this is good enough for me!

The Billion Dollar Brows eyebrow brush is my new go-to brush for my brows. I've used my mini Benefit one which came with my Browzings, the little one from my Sleek Brow Kit, an ELF one and another random one, but this is by far my favourite. The bristles are slightly softer than the other brushes I've been using, which means that you don't get as much product onto your brows in one go. Some people may not like this, but I definitely do, it means no thick, dark outlines on the brows, just easy to build product to get the desired look exactly right and really accurate. It also has a little brush on the other end to comb and neaten the brows with, very handy!

PS Sorry for the iPhone photo, and a YT video will follow soon.
