June Faves!

Hey Guys, Gemma here! Apologies for being so M.I.A here, trying to work 6 days a week whilst having an internship and trying to fit in social life unfortunately interrupted my blogging plans! I am back though and I have to say that I cannot believe we are in July! Holiday month for me. YAYYYYY. So here are some of the stuff that I was loving in June.


So I don't really change up my beauty products a lot because if I find something that works well for me, I don't see the point in wasting time and money looking for the same thing. This is really why I don't tend to do monthly faves as I always use the same stuff. With a few exceptions in June!


At the start of June, I ran out of my usual Nearly Naked foundation and not one store in my local town centre had my shade. That was two Boots stores and a Superdrug. As I had a night out that night, I went into full scale panic mode. I seen that the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation was on some sort of promotion at the time. So due to being desperate and as I had always heard great things about it on other blogs and on YouTube, I picked it up. I am so in love with this foundation. My shade - 'Light Vanilla' is perfect for me, one of the best matches I have found. It is not a full coverage foundation and when first applied it is definitely light whilst still giving good coverage. Making it perfect for summer as it doesn't cake your skin. Sometimes when my skin is really bad I do like a full coverage but this is totally buildable and always looks great.


Believe it or not this is my first ever MAC pigment. I used to have loads of the Barry M pigments that were out years ago but after one spilled all over my cream carpet, filling my mum with sheer rage, I gave up on them out of fear. That is until I seen this baby. When I first seen pics of what was going to be in the collection, I knew I had to get my hands on this. I just love bold eye colours these days and I don't know why. I used to be such a solid brown girl! When I was finally able to wear this I was so in love. It is such a bright colour and when paired with brown it is simply stunning. Pigments are a little messy but I feel like I get more fall out with my naked palettes than  I did with this which is saying something! This is definitely going to be my go to summer eye colour.


This little beauty was actually my first 'Back to MAC' freebie! If you are not aware of back to MAC it is basically a recycling program offered by MAC in which if you have 6 empty cases and take them into your local store, they will give you a free lipstick of your choice. I had had my 6 cases for a while but as my closest store isn't actually that close, I kept forgetting about them. Until June! Normally when I make a high-end or MAC quailty purchase, I do all my research on the product so it isn't a waste but when I done my 'Back to MAC', I wasn't intending to so didn't have time to do my usual searching. I basically just swatched loads of ones I don't have and left with this bad boy. I had never even heard of Lickable before which is surprising. It is a cremesheen finish and is a true pink colour which is bold enough to make an impact but subtle enough to wear everyday. I really think this would suit all skin tones. I have been wearing it nearly every day since I got it. (not with the blue eyeshadow I should add!).

So basically that is all the beauty related stuff I had been loving in June, not a lot I know! But again I keep all my stuff the same.


The first thing I have to talk about is ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. I am obsessed with this show. I only started watching it about two weeks ago and I am in the middle of season two. I have been watching it on my phone on my breaks and work and everything. I can not get enough of it. My faves have got to be Morello, Taystee and Poussey. I wish they were my friends. If you haven't started this yet, I really really recommend it. I do warn you, all other areas of life like sleeping and washing will take a back seat to this show... THE ANIMAL THE ANIMAL!!


I went to see this when it was out in the cinema a few months back and then at the start of June I got it for my dad for father's day and I have watched it like every night when I got home from work. IT IS AMAZING. It is like one of my favourite films ever now. It is about 4 friends who have been best friends their whole lives and I don't want to give anything away but they end up in Las Vegas for a celebration and if you watch it or have seen it, you will probs agree with me that you wanna be at the party they throw!? I just love the story. It stars 4 absolute legends and the fact that they are having fun and not taking themselves seriously just makes it all better. Also, I fancy Robert De Niro, who is older than my grandpa. Weird right? 10/10


Ugh. This book. This film. Ugh. I am ruined. I have never cried in a cinema like that in my life. I was full scale sobbing, loudly. But I ain't even ashamed! I definetely recommend you read the book before seeing the film as it just adds to it. I am not going to say one thing about the storyline (even though I am sure everyone will probably know the jist) but it is just so so precious I don't want to ruin it for anyone. I HAVE to go see it again asap. Also, I dare you not to fancy Ansel Elgort after you see him as Augustus Waters, I dare you!

So that was that guys, all the things I loved in June! Not a lot but I thought I would share them with you all!

What did you guys love in June? Let us know!
