Is it really wrong that I kinda feel like I’m already a little bit late with this video even though it’s only the 2nd of March? I think that’s so wrong, but I can’t help it! Actually the video was meant to go up yesterday, but then I remembered that Mother’s Day is around the corner. So I thought putting together a mothers day gift ideas post would make more sense!
Anyways, this monthly favourites video is a little bit longer than my last monthly favourites video but there were a lot more products to play around with last month, I felt a lot more experimental with (and worried about) my skin and stuff.

I thought I could do one of these monthly favourites again, seeing that I have basically created almost the same look almost every day out of the same items (I guess that is either really lazy or just speaks for the products themselves – both!).
Because I was wearing fake tan a lot these past few weeks, I stayed away from bronzers and only reached for golden-toned highlighters – the Accessorize, Benefit and Chanel highlighters above really basically have similar/identical effect which is great when you’re on a budget!
Same goes for the two tinted moisturizers by Liz Earle and JK Jemma Kidd – both have SPF (Liz Earle has SPF15 while JK Jemma Kidd has SPF20) but other than that they feel pretty much the same on my skin and give the same sheer coverage, so I’ve been alternating between those two – I don’t normally like tinted moisturizer because it doesn’t even out my skin tone enough but what with wearing fake tan I have no matching foundations anymore haha!
What have been your favourites this June? Let me know in the comments, I always love to try new things!!
Chanel is gracing us with a beautiful looking, extensive Spring/Summer 2012 collection called Spring Harmony which consists over 22 products, spanning nail polishes, blushers, lip glosses and balms, lip sticks, liners, eyeshadows and more!

Eyeshadows Tigerlily and Rose de Mai for £21 each

Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lip Shines in Candeur and Flirt and Rouge Coco Baume Hydrating Lip Balm for £23 each
I really like the look of this collection – it picks up some nice soft pink and coral colours that are ideal for the spring/spring summer, and throws in some stronger, deeper colours that offer a nice contrasting alternative! As always though, I don’t really like the price tag of the products! If any of these, I’d probably get the nail polishes!!
Are you going to check this collection out? Any items that you’d buy?
