Where has the month of June gone?  This year is flying by.  Can you believe that we are closer to the next January than we are to the last (people hate it when I tell them that haha).  Anyways, before July slips through our fingers and it's too late lets talk June Favourites.


Mitchum deodorant - This first one is a bit of a boring one but everybody needs to use it and this is the deodorant that I am loving right now.  I used it all through the month of June as I took it on holiday with me.  When you are on holiday and in the sun all day you want a deodorant that is going to keep you fresh for as long as possible and in my opinion this is the best one to do so. 

Rimmel Wake Me Up - This use to be my drugstore foundation of choice hands down but when Rimmel launched Match Perfection I had to give that one a go and I ended up ditching my Wake Me Up for Match Perfection.  However I am back to loving my Wake Me Up Foundation again, it gives the most beautiful dewy finish and has a slight shimmer to it which I also like. It is the perfect foundation for a sun kissed summer look and is great for covering up those dark circles under your eyes. 

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes  - I was loving this mascara in the month of June.  I had it on every night whilst on holiday and I have been wearing it non-stop since I have been home too.  It   separates your lashes perfectly adding volume and length but it doesn't leave you with any awful clumps.   If you want to see a more in depth review of this mascara then I have a whole blog post dedicated to it (HERE).

Rimmel Moisture Renew in In Love With Ginger - Ooo Rimmel are just on form for me at the moment.  All through the month of June I noticed I kept reaching for Rimmel products.  And isn't this vibrant orange lipstick a beauty? Yes.  The answer is yes.  I have a couple of these Moisture Renew lipsticks and I love them all.  They are so moisturising and not all drying on the lips.  However if you don't like scented lipsticks then these may not be for you although I personally love the smell of these lipsticks.  Glam Plum Fullham is also a nice shade, it is a lovely plumb colour that is perfect for the Autumn/Winter months. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post.  I would love to know what you have been loving in the months of June? Or if you have also been loving some of my current faves?

Have you ever been strolling through Instagram seen something that you have feel head over heels in love with and wished you had a buy button to click on?  If so, you need this app in your life...who has heard of Depop? I know that I might be very late in joining the party but for those of you that don't know Depop is an app which you can buy and sell second hand clothes from much like Ebay. 

However in my opinion Depop is much better, as there are no fees for putting an item up and they only take a small 5%  of the profit once the item has sold.  Another great thing is that unlike Ebay there is no time limit which the items have to be sold in, they can stay on your page for as long as you wish!


There are so many lovely and friendly buyers and sellers on this app that are always willing to answer any questions about any items that you are interested in.  You can even swap items! That's right if you are a little low for cash you can come to an agreement with another buyer to swap your brand new dress that doesn't fit for a pair of new pair of shoes.  Although I must warn you all to be very careful when doing this as I would hate for one of you to get scammed!

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, who else uses Depop?

In a previous post I said that the Maybelline the falsies was my favourite mascara of all time  (linked below).  Although I am still very much in love with this mascara there is another that has stole my heart... The L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Noir Excess.  I love this mascara just as much as my beloved falsies, in fact I think I even prefer it! It makes your lashes look amazing by separating them evenly and leaving you with no clumps, wehay!

I am quite fortunate to have naturally rather long and thick eyelashes (thank you Mum) therefore it is not very often that mascara really blows me away.  However this stuff does wonders! It leaves my lashes looking thicker, fuller and gives them an incredible amount of length and volume.  When my boyfriend said ''your eyelashes look long today" I knew I had to share this product with you guys! When do boys EVER notice a new mascara!?

If you guys would like to check out this product it is available from Boots and Superdrug for about £10.99.  A little pricey for a drugstore mascara in my mind but worth every single penny. 

What is your favourite drugstore mascara?  Or what is your go to mascara of the moment?
