KIKO Milano Desert Dunes Trio Baked Blush in 01 Lust Coral* - I have probably mentioned this in a million favourites since I first got my hands on it, but this month I have been reaching for this product a lot. It's one of those blushes that just instantly perks up your face because of its additional highlighting properties. I find the formula of this absolutely stunning and easy to blend without looking too like 'woahhh'. The dusty tones of the three shades come together nicely and have great staying power. Oh and it smells like chocolate, which is a nice bonus!
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara (£17.50)* - Now, as I have said time and time again, mascaras don't excite me that much, but every so often I am pleasantly surprised by a new mascara that lands on my desk. The Urban Decay Perversion Mascara actually does wonders for my lashes! The formula is very wet, which I know some people will actually dislike, but for me it really helps work the product into the lashes. This wet, creamy formula provides me with the best control for getting the most volume and length built into each lash before it dries.
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil (£18.50)* - June has been the month where my brows - if I do say so myself - have been 'on fleek'. This is all down to Benefit's latest launch, it's new comprehensive brow collection, full of wondrous products to achieve fuller, defined brows. Goof Proof has been my go to because of how quick it is to use. Simply use the spooley end to fluff up the brow, and then define the shape with the waxy diamond-shaped nib. Brilliant for Monday mornings in particular and super long-lasting.
Sleek MakeUP Matte Me Lip Cream (£4.99) - I am still not over the matte liquid lipstick trend, and Sleek's matte formula is one of the best on the high street. The formula is surprisingly comfortable and it lasts a good few hours before reapplication is needed. I have the shade Birthday Suit, which I have been wearing most days, but there are so many more that I need. I also love the packaging, super sleek (ignore the pun...) and they're so affordable you'd be mad not to pick them up.
Illamasqua Beyond Powder in OMG (£32)* - You guys know how much I love Illamasqua, it's one of my favourite brands for unique make-up looks (did you see this pink look I created recently?), but also has some really great, universally loved products. If you know me well, y'all will also know I love a good highlight; oh boy do I love to glow. I also adore a baked product, so the Illamasqua Beyond Powder is right up my street. SO pigmented and so pretty. OMG is a finely milled champagne shade that warms up my complexion and helps my skin look super radiant. I tend to use this in all the usual highlighting places, but the product can also be used wet so I am definitely going to try and use it on my eyes too. It's also worth mentioning that this shade is light enough for a dusting all over the face to set base products - basically it's everything one obsessed with highlighting or strobing needs.
L'Oréal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation (£14.99) - This has been an absolute treasure in my collection for lighter, dewy make-up days. That's the key word here: dewy - super dewy and radiant in fact. This foundation is stunning and can actually be built up for rather decent coverage. The sponginess is novel, but really great for application, I love it. The formula is also enriched with SPF 25, so a really great staple for summer... if we ever get a summer that is.
