Hello July! 😀
Honestly guys, where is the time going? With every passing month, I am growing anxious as my first year college exams are nearing! Which is also the reason why my blogging has been slow last month. June however seemed to be extra hectic and challenging as I was faced with various practical, theory and viva exams but I came out with flying colours. I did try out several new products throughout June. Some I loved, some… not so much.:/
I had an idea guys, just as I do these monthly favourites, would you like me to do a monthly “not-so-favs”? Obviously I will try to come up with a better title than that! 😀
So let’s jump in and talk about the products I loved using this month, shall we? 🙂
Colorbar Perfect Pout Gloss: Before I talk about this product, I would like to talk about the brand; Colorbar. I have used some of their products and they are pretty good but I must say I have never heard any YouTuber or Blogger from USA talk about it. It says that it is a product of USA but do you guys get it there? Do let me know! I have been so curious about it. 😦 I am sure most of you are well aware of my lipstick addiction by now I do tend to steer towards matte lipsticks instead of gloss but the shade was just too irresistible. I have it in the shade SNEAKY which is a light peachy pinky nude. The texture is creamy but not thick, it is not runny either, it is just right to coat the lips. The colour is just perfect for the summer time. I will do a more detailed review of this product or of this brand and it’s other products if you all are interested. Please let me know in the comments 🙂
Lakme Absolute Plump and Shine: I have talked about Lakme before and so many of you asked me if it was available in USA or UK but sadly my lovelies, it is only available in India. I really think they should start shipping it abroad as their products are absolutely amazing! It is one of the oldest makeup brands in India and many people swear by them. This shade is one of my favourite nude lip glosses of all time. It is called Beige Shine and it is a gorgeous nude with golden, pink & purple shimmer in it. The shades adds a luxurious shine to the lips and just a hint of pink colour. I was reaching for this gloss almost everyday and I am definitely going to repurchase it when I run out.
Makeup Revolution Iconic Dreams Palette: The moment I saw this paette, it was love at first sight for me. I have also posted a detailed review on it and you can check it out HERE. I used this palette everyday and I created so many looks with it. I really enjoy playing and experimenting with eye shadows. I am planning on purchasing a few more palettes from them soon 🙂 You can follow me on Instagram to get the early updates! I’d love for your support! 🙂
Maybelline Super Stay Gel Nail Colour in SURREAL: When it comes to nail polishes, I find like I go through phases with them. They are very unexpected and very weird if I say so myself! 😀 I will wear nothing but pastels for weeks then I need darker shades on my nails immediately! Weird isn’t it? Throughout June, I developed an obsession with blues and purples which led me to Surreal and I still have a fresh coat of it on my nails! It is beautiful, it is such a unique colour. I never had a colour like this before. Surreal is a periwinkle blue or a pretty lavender-blue shade. I think it has the power to make any outfit summery and vibrant. It is a very crisp and a refreshing colour.
Maybelline Color Show in Blazing Blue: It is an intense royal blue shade and it is sensational. Considering the price, the Color Show range always have gorgeous colours and remarkable qualities. They are perfect for all age groups and are affordable as well! It is a bright colour and looks amazing in summer. You should definitely give this shade a try!
April Touch Of Love Lotion (Blackberry and Lilac scented): I have a thing for fruity fragrances as most of you already know and so my falling in love with this lotion surely doesn’t come as a surprise! 😛 It has a mixture of fruity and floral fragrance, as already mentioned. It is very light weight, absorbs quickly and leaves behind a soft, sweet refreshing scent. My arms get very dry throughout the day so I always need to carry a moisturizer with me. I do not like to use heavy creams or lotions during summer so I opt for water based ones and this lotion from April is one of them! 🙂
So I want to talk about all the things that I loved using last month but I fear you all will be stuck here for ages if I did that! I do however want to talk about other things besides beauty that I loved in June. Movies! I love watching movies, guys! So I thought I would share with you movies that I loved watching in June! (PS: How about I incorporate movies I did not like in my Not-So-Favs post? Just a thought, let me know if you all like the idea at all 😛 )
ZOOTOPIA: Even thought it was released in February, I didn’t get a chance to see it till last month. Shocking I know as I live for animated movies! The movie was hilarious! Nick and Judy stole my heart! (Nick in particular with his sly smirks and mischievous eyes!) I won’t give you any spoilers but if you haven’t watched it, I suggest you grab a big of popcorn and lock yourself in a room with the movie for 1 hour 50 minutes!
X-MEN APOLCALYPSE: Being a big fan of X-Men, I had to run and watch the movie. I had been waiting for it for so long! I really liked it thought a few scenes and a few characters seemed boring. But the ONE scene I did love in the entire movie was when… (SPOILER ALERT) the Phoenix made an appearance! Jean Grey/Phoenix is my favourite mutant/god entity.
I practically jumped out of my seat and started yelling when I saw it manifest itself. Sophie Turner portrayed Jean marvelously and I hope the directors re-shoot the Phoenix saga as I absolutely disliked how it was made in the 2006 version. Here’s hoping they don’t kill her!
FINDING DORY: So glad they made a sequel to Finding Nemo! It was a such a fun movie, full of life! The new characters were absolutely adorable! It will be a great movie to watch with your family! Zootopia as well!
Clearly this post is way longer than it needs to be isn’t it? 😀 But I do hope you enjoyed reading it! I would like to tell you guys that I won’t be able to posts as often as I used to because of my studies. This is my first year of college and I need to get really good grades. Even thought the exams are in December, I know, I know you must be thinking, exams in December but you are slowing down now? The reason is that I have taken up distance education which means I have to do my entire college studies on my own without the help of a teacher so it is a huge pressure, my friends and I have been reading, making notes and just focusing on my studies from the earliest possible to get the highest marks. That will ensure a better future for me. I will be posting, I am not leaving completely, just not that often. I hope you will bear with me for the time being! 🙂
Let me know if you liked my idea on “Monthly Not-So-Faves” in the comments! How was your June? I hope you have a bright, happy and lively summer! Every feedback I get form you guys is treasured and much appreciated! 🙂
