June 2016 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for  June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.

Here we go.

Makeup

Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact  (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.

As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing  03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now  04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?

Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection

Back in the days, Urban Decay eye shadow palettes were a big deal in the beauty world.  I remember how I used to buy every single Book Of Shadows. Even though I don’t even use them now, I could never give them away. I still have my Alice Book Of Shadows somewhere among my other “treasures”.

I am sure, you know that the brand brought out a new Alice Through the Looking Glass palette to celebrate the launch of a new film which I am definitely seeing when it is in the theatres.

If that is something you are interested in – I suggest you get it as soon as possible, as it will be a sell out. The palette is available from Selfridges for £43 and Ulta for $60 already and is all kinds of gorgeous with a very colourful design
