June Favourites!

I haven't ever done a monthly favourites post before but I realised that over the last month or so I have been using the same products pretty much everyday, so I thought I would tell you about them!

L-R, Tresemme Colour Fade Protection shampoo and conditioner, Moroccan Oil
If you follow me on twitter you may have read that I recently had my hair coloured. My hairdresser recommended I get a shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair to help protect my colour and stop it fading. I chose to get Tresemme Colour Fade Protection. I have used these about four times now and I love them! My colour hasn't faded at all, however I find it hard to tell if that's due to the shampoo and conditioner or not because I don't know how my hair would look if I wasn't using them! I honestly don't think I have used a shampoo and conditioner before that leave my hair so unbelievably soft! I have noticed over the past couple of weeks of using these my hair just seems to be in better condition and is getting softer, looking healthier and is more manageable.

I have had Moroccan oil for a little while now and I have always loved using it, however over the past month I have felt like I need to use it! The weather has been hot one minute and raining the next and this oil just seems to control my hair and stop it going frizzy and fluffy. 
I apply one pump of this to damp hair just before I blow dry and then about half a pump into my hair after I have dried and styled it. I have pretty thick hair and when it rains my hair goes very frizzy and poofy. If I have used this in the morning though, my hair will stay smooth and frizz free! I absolutely love this and I am considering getting a mini 25ml to carry around in my bag.
I have a hair care routine which you can read here.

L-R, No7 Powder Blush Brush, YSL Touche Eclat Foundation, Urban Decay Naked Palette, Mac MSF Natural
I have had this No7 blush brush for a few months now and at first I used it to powder my face. A few weeks ago however, my Mac blush brush broke so I decided to use this instead and I actually really really like it. It is the perfect size and shape for applying blush to the apples of the cheeks and I find it picks up the ideal amount of product on it. It is very soft and not too dense which means the blush doesn't apply too heavy and I end up with clown cheeks!

I picked up a sample of the new YSL Touche Eclat foundation the other week and I really like it. It has even been taking the place of my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqau on a couple of mornings and that is my all time favourite! I am planning to do a whole review on this foundation by the end of this week so I wont ramble on about it now but I love it and it is a definite favourite of mine this month. 

Over the past month I haven't really been wearing much eye shadow, as in a full smokey eye, however I like to have something on my eyelids just to add some definition so I have been enjoying using 'Naked' from the Naked palette.  This is just a matte, light brown and I either sweep it all over my eyelid or focus it into the crease for some definition. It's quick and easy for everyday which I love.

I tend to go through stages of loving Mac msf natural and wearing it everyday and then not wearing it for ages. The past month I have been loving it and wearing it every single day without fail. I get a slightly oily nose so I always powder that, however when using Mac msf I tend to powder all over my skin because I just love the finish it gives. It doesn't look cakey and powdery at all, it just leaves my skin natural and healthy. This powder is really light on the skin but also provides enough coverage if my skin is having a good day and I only need light coverage.

That is all of my favourites for June! I hope you enjoyed this post - I enjoyed writing it and choosing what to put in it so I definitely think I will be doing one next month!

What are your June favourites? Have you tried any of these products?
