June Favourites - UK Cosmetics Edition

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer #1
I have heard SO SO SO much about this concealer and this was at the top of my list of things to try when I got to jolly old London. Boy oh boy it did not disappoint. This concealer is everything I dreamed and hoped it would be and then some. It is most comparable to Nars Creamy Concealer only not quite as thick or dry and it doesn't emphasise the fine lines around my eyes the way that Nars Creamy Concealer does. As you can see I went a little over board and bought 6 of them, but they were only $8 (around 4 pounds) each!

Benefit Dandelion Blusher 
For years now I have been itching to buy and try this blush but have put it off for one reason or another. But while staying in London with my sister I had the opportunity to use hers and really fall in love with it. I absolutely love the "I've just been standing outside in the wind and cold" rosy cheek look that it gives and it just has the most beautiful "glow from within" effect.

Bourjois Silk Edition Touch Up Powder 
I actually picked this out from a pharmacy in Paris when I ran out of my beloved Ere Perez Calendula Foundation Powder. The weather was pretty warm and my shine was getting way out of control so i just grabbed the first thing I came access, with very low expectations I might add. This powder worked out to be a real treat! It gives my skin a lovely soft, smooth and pore minimised look without being chalky or cakey and it works really well at keeping my shine at bay for a good majority of the day (hey, that rhymes).   

Tanya Burr Romantic Eye Palette 
Within the last month and a half this has become a daily staple for me. Bookworm is the perfect shade of brown to deepen and smoke out the crease, with a warm tone that makes you look more bronzed and glowy.

Tanya Burr Brow Palette 
I am pretty darn picky when it comes to brow products so I don't really like to experiment too much with them. I find something I like and LOYALY stick to it. But as a swooning fan of Tanya Burr I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to try out her ENTIRE range, including her brow palette. I was surprising impressed with the colours that she developed. Also the formula seems to be very smooth and gives really even wash of colour. In the future I think this would be a great palette to travel with as you can get a great smokey eye with these colours.

Liz Ear Hot Cloth Cleanser 
I think it was about a year ago(maybe even two) that this product was ALL THE RAGE amongst online UK beauty gurus and I can see why. I think this would be a great product for all skin types as it just left my skin feeling clean (but not squeaky), hydrated (but not greasy), plump and superbly soft. I really wish I had had the chance to pop back into Boots before I left to pick up a second bottle because I see myself running out of this pronto. 

Aussie Curl Define and Shine Mousse 
I've never really been on board with the idea of using a mousse in my hair but after watching Cary Fletcher (ItsWayPastMyBedTime) doing her curly hair routine I thought it might be worth giving it a go. So when I found this "Curl Defining" mousse from Aussie, a brand that I have been interested in trying (ironically its not available in Australia) I knew something great was about to happen. I love that my hair doesn't end up feeling crunchy or stiff after using this. I get more definition and curl longevity but I manage to maintain full body and bounce.
