These are a few of my favourite things

♥ Topshop Cream Blush in Flush
For a cream blush this is incredibly long lasting and it gives such a beautiful, natural pop of colour to the cheeks. It's my go to shade at the moment!

♥ Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Furore
The one where I should have listened to Leanne ages ago. Beautiful pigment, I've been using it as a wash of colour all over my lid, accompanied by various different liners to switch up the look. Gorgeous!

♥ La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Sebo-Regulating Moisturizer
Blimey that's a long name. I finally decided to take the plunge and try this brand and I have to say I'm really impressed. I've been using this under my foundation and I've noticed the shine is held at bay for a lot longer whilst leaving my skin lovely and soft.

♥ No 7 Fanomenal Lashes Mascara
I picked this up on a complete whim. I've loved the No 7 mascaras that I've tried in the past so I thought I'd give this a go. So far I'm pretty impressed! It claims to give a fuller lash fan thanks to its awesome new star brush. Well worth picking up. If you've got a £5 No 7 voucher that makes it £7.95 :)

Which products have you been loving this month? Can anyone recommend any other La Roche-Posay products suitable for combination skin?

P.S. There won't be a 'Things I've learnt in June' post because, erm, well, I forgot to do one. Hashtag forgetful Freda.

  1. I brought that Mascara today - I'm excited to use it after seeing this post :)

    1. I really like it. The one niggle I have is that is transfers from my lower lashes xx

  2. Would you say the moisturiser is worth it? I'm on the fence :/

    1. I'd say yes because I'm yet to find a primer that holds shine at bay for as long! xx

  3. I could have sworn I'd read your reply on this! Thanks for getting back to me though, I am going to bite the bullet and get some :) need something to help make up stay put especially this summer.

    1. Skincare was on 3 for 2 when I picked this up, so I took the plunge :) xx
