June Favourites '11

This being my first favourite I'm unsure on how I will structure it! So I'm just going to start typing and hope it'll come out okay. So my makeup everyday reach fors were:

As usual my reach for foundation was MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW20. Such a great foundation. Great full coverage! MAC foundation is a hit or miss, love or hate! And I love them! :) Studio Sculpt, Studio Tech, Studio Plus Powder, Select, Pro Longwear, I have and love them all!

For eye shadows, MAC eye shadows are my go to for a long time now. The colour pay off is worth the extra couple of euros from a drugstore brand, and the colour variety is just out of this world. I don't know can I pick just one so I'm going to say Satin Taupe, Woodwinked, Sketch and Handwritten.
I think that's my most go to four. I've had Black Tied, which is a black shimmer, for a long time now and I love it. All four are late May/early June purchases. Satin Taupe and Woodwinked are alike in pan but so different in swatch and on eye. They both are shimmery browns, Satin Taupe is a frost and Woodwinked a veluxe pearl. Sketch is the most beautiful purple ever! I'm in love with this burgundy velvet, it has a red shimmer in it which makes it so different, it's great for lid, crease, under-eye. Handwritten I love wearing with Swiss Chocolate! on the lid, blended together. Just an unbelievable all rounder. I've been loving smokey eyes and dramatics.

Mascara and eyeliner I've estranged from my usual MAC products. I am loving Maybelline Volum' Express One by One mascara or Volum' Express The Falsies, I think One by One is just amazing, it seperates the lashes so effortlessly unlike a lot of mascaras, this just doesn't clump!

Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner is the most amazing gel eyeliner, it comes with a brush too, so if you don't have a angled eyeliner on hand, this brush would work a charm.

MAC Dollymix blush has been my go to cheek product, well I have two cheek products but blush-wise. It is the most amazing hot pink blush!

My other go to face product is a new bronzer from the MAC surf baby collection, the Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Lush-Light Bronze. The detailing on it is so cool. MACMACMACMACMACMAC. I got both this and the blush new and I've literally being using them everyday.

For lips, MAC lipstick same reason as for MAC eyeshadows, the colour pay off is amazing, and range of colours is just incredible. I think I'm going to say, this is so hard - I think I'm going to split it to two everyday and one other - Naked Paris and Viva Glam Gaga LE, well not together but they were my main lips for June, and Riveting Rose LE for when I want to amp it up.

And my go to brush; my everyday lifesaver, holy grail, can't worship enough brush is any eyeshadow blending brush. It has to be the one thing I could give to any girl, and it would change each and every one of those girls lifes. MAC 217 or a Sigma E25 are my goto's :)! :)

  1. I know I've texted you about this before but which is better, studio fix or studio sculpt? I think I'm going into BTs tomorrow to get a new foundation-I want something good for dry skin, with high coverage. Your description of studio fix appeals to me but let me know anyway please! :)

  2. Studio Sculpt is like a gel! I'd say Studio Sculpt! I love it! Ask someone to put on both, when you get colour matched make sure your happy with it, if its to dark, say its to dark!

  3. Okay thanks! Should that be about 30 euro ish?
