Monday, July 7, 2014


Hello everyone, how are you doing on this lovely Monday? I hope that you are having an awesome day so far. It's finally July, which means that it's time for a brand new monthly favorites post. I haven't been playing around with a lot off new beauty products lately, have mostly just been sticking to my same old beauty favorites.

But I do have a few items that I have been enjoying, so I thought I would share those products with you guys today. So without further ado, here are my favorite products for the month off June! :-) 

 ♥ My Monthly Favorites: June 2014. 

 ♥ L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara & Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude. 

I have only been using the L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mega Volume Mascara for a couple off weeks now, but I have been reaching for it almost every day since I got it. I thought I would still include it in my monthly favorites post, because I have really been enjoying it a lot. It gives my lashes nice length and volume, it haven't flaked or smudged under my eyes so far and it's quite build able as well. It can make the lashes look a bit spidery after the first coat, so if your not a fan off that look, I don't think that you will like this mascara. I also love the shape off the brush, it's wonderful. It's so easy to get in between all the lashes with it! :-)

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude is the perfect flesh colored eyeliner for the waterline. I have been using it for a while now and I absolutely adore it. It brightens up the eyes and make them look more awake instantly. It's nicely pigmented and very creamy too. The staying power is okay, nothing too crazy. I do have to re-apply it after a few hours, but that really doesn't bother me.

Before I heard about the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude, I always used to use a white eyeliner by Smashbox in my waterline. White can look a bit harsh, so I'm glad that I switched over to a flesh colored one instead. I have heard good things about the Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Topaz too, but that one is more pricey than the one from Rimmel London. If you want a good quality eyeliner that works great on the waterline, this is a great one! :-)

 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul. 

I picked up this Mineralize Blush by MAC Cosmetics back in April when I was visiting my sister in Trondheim. It's called Warm Soul and it's a beautiful bronzed peach with golden shimmer. It gives the skin the most beautiful, healthy looking glow without being too shimmery. I think Warm Soul would look go well with so many different skin tones, definitely check it out if you are in the market for a new Summer blush! :-)

♥ Piz Buin Ultra Light Dry Touch Face Fluid SPF 15 & NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Tiramisu. 
 I'm happy to say that I have finally found a sunscreen for my face that I can't live without. It's the Ultra Light Dry Touch Face Fluid by Piz Buin. It absorbs so quickly into the skin and it doesn't feel greasy, sticky or oily at all. It feels like there is nothing on my skin, which is amazing. Just like the other sun products from Piz Buin, this one smells delightful as well.

It's so important to stay protected from the sun all year round, especially during the hot Summer months. I couldn't find this one in a highter SPF than 15 at the store, so I might have to pick up a bottle off the SPF 30 online.

The NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Tiramisu has been a big favorite off mine during the month off June. Tiramisu is a pretty brown with a hint off pink thrown into it. It feels incredible soft and smooth on the lips, it's hardly sticky and it's got great pigmentation. Tiramisu looks great on it's own, but it also looks stunning paired with different lipsticks. It has a yummy, sweet sugary scent and taste. It's a perfect everyday kind off gloss! :-)

 ♥ Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sneakers. 

I thought I would start including a fashion favorite in my monthly favorites posts from now on, what do you guys think about that? My June fashion favorite has been these amazing Nike Dunk Sky Hi sneakers. I absolutely love them. I think that they are so cool and fun, and they go with a lot off different looks too. They have a concealed wedge heel, which is quite comfortable to walk in and they make your feet look smaller than what actually they are,  which is kind off cool.

I'm going to London on holiday this upcoming weekend and I'm planning on taking these with me. I'm thinking about wearing them when we are going to see The Lion King Musical. We'll see if I end up taking these with me or not! :-) 

♥ TV Series: 24. Photo credit, HERE.

Simon and I have been watching 24, which is a show that I used to watch a lot when it first aired on television here in Norway. Simon has never watched it before, so we thought it would be fun to watch it together. We are only on the first season though, so we have quite a few episodes left until we have completed the series. I'm really looking forward to watching the new season called Live Another Day, it looks great.

If your not familiar with the show, it's about Jack Bauer, Director of Field Ops for the Counter-Terrorist Unit of Los Angeles, who races against the clock to subvert terrorist plots and save his nation from ultimate disaster. It's a very entertaining and action-packed TV show, highly recommend it if you are into those kind off TV shows! :-)

What have you been loving for the month off June? Any products I should add to my London wishlist? What TV shows are you currently watching? :-) Love, Christine♥
