June Hits and Misses

Another month, and some new favourites have been added to my collection along with one regret purchase.

Marks & Spencer Limited Collection Liquid Liner in Turquoise (review here)

This is a true budget gem at only £4 and it stays put all day. It is a fantastic vibrant hue that applies really easily, even for someone with novice liner skills like me! 

Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Happy Days (review here)

 I am a sucker for balmy lip products and I really love how easy to use this lip product is. It's light and non drying and gives a sheer tint to the lips. I do wish it twisted up rather than having to be sharpened though. 

Moroccan Oil (review here)
Everyone seems to have been praising this for ever as a miracle product for transforming your locks into glistening, shiny tresses.  Whilst I wouldn't say it is a miracle, it has manages to bring my dull, coloured hair back to life and certainly increased it's shine. I've had this mini bottle for around a month now and I've hardly made a dent in it so despite a full bottle being rather pricey, it will last forever!

Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub (review here)
Love love love everything about this from the gorgeous yummy scent  of maple syrup to the fantastic scrubbing grains which manage to simultaneously exfoliate whilst also being very moisturising. 

L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil (review here)
I've yet to find a L'Occitane product I don't like and this shower oil us deliciously moisturising without being greasy. I've only got a small sample of this from a gift set but I will be investigating the purchase of a full sized product. 

Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara
I'm going to keep this brief as I will have a full review of this coming up later in the week. However I will say that a mascara that weighs down lashes and leaves smudges is not a party mascara!
What have you loved using this month? 


  1. This is a really great post, and the M&S liner sounds great :)


  2. Loove the smell of the Breakfast Scrub, and I really need to try some M&S makeup, their skincare is really nice! :) x

    1. I don't think I've tried much of their skincare but I'm actually really enjoying using one of their body lotions at the moment. It came in a Christmas gift set and is much better than I thought it would be :-)

  3. Good post:) I've had Some good hits (and several misses) lately!

    1. Oh no, its so annoying when you buy something only to be disappointed.

  4. I really fancy trying the M&S eyeliner it looks fab x

    1. You should definitely get it, its a bargain and I know you like your liner :-) x

  5. Love the look of the M&S liner, tutorial? Laura x

    1. Don't know if I am good enough at applying it to do a tutorial - I'm such a liner novice I only started using liquid liner in the last 6 months or so. It is fab though x
