July Favourites


I have quite a lot of products this month. Some new goodies and some that you've seen round these parts before. We've got a lot to go through so let's get started...

Starting off with base I've been loving the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation this month. It's a great long lasting formula and makes my skin look incredible. 
As for concealer, the NYX HD Concealer is what I've been using to cover my ghastly dark circles and the amazing Beauty Blender has made it so easy and effortless which is exactly what I need in the mornings.

The Maybelline Dream Bronze BB Cream has found its way into my possession and I've been loving how it looks on my skin. Especially for those natural makeup days where a bit of bronze glow is all that's needed. 
But speaking of a bronze glow, the Too Faced A Little Black Book of Bronzers has been my go to every single day. The Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer has been by far my favourite but the other bronzers are blooming incredible too.

As for contour, the Charlotte Tilbury FilmStar Bronze & Glow is possibly my favourite makeup product ever. The shade of both of these is completely perfect and so universal and the sculpting powder looks great as a contour using the Real Techniques Sculpting Brush but also as a bronzer just using a Stippling Brush and applied all over the skin to add a bronzey glow. As for the highlight, it's so beautiful and looks stunning on the cheekbones and the eyes. 

I've also been loving the Laura Mercier Radiant Matte Powder as its just beautiful as a highlight and again an eyeshadow. The shade is perfect, a beautiful gold champagne kind of highlight and has just the right amount of pigment that isn't too over the top but is still noticeable. 

Sticking with the cheeks, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushers in Dollface and Exposed have been the only blushes I've worn - when I've actually worn blush - and I love everything about them, the formula, the shades, the longevity of them, just everything.

For setting everything, I initially go in and set with the Maybelline Fit Me Powder which has just been my favourite recently. Then to make sure everything is looking fresh and natural the L'Oreal Setting Spray has been a great little addition to my routine.

I've mentioned the Beauty Blender already for my concealer but I've been using the Real Techniques Brushes exclusively this month, no other brands (not for the face at least) and although I will be doing a separate post on my favourites as well as the others from the range, these are the ones I've used and loved the most. First is the new Sculpting Brush Set which consists of the Sculpt Brush, Setting Brush and a Fan Brush. All three are great brushes, as you would expect from RT and I use them every single day. They have a metallic pink handle which I'm in love with. Next are a few of their regular original brushes, the Blush Brush which is the perfect brush for powder, blush and bronzer and as for the and the Expert Face Brush, well I've purchased two so that I always have one available and they're just great for foundation, concealer, contour, bronzer and blush. All their brushes are so universal and the quality is just incredible. 
RT brought out the Bold Metals Brushes which are slightly more expensive luxury brushes, I mean c'mon, look at that beautiful packaging, aren't they stunning? They're soft, still universal and although they are more expensive, they are definitely worth it, the quality is somehow even better and they're so soft and fluffy. Ahh I just love 'em.

Continuing with makeup, the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette has been my go to this month. It has great transition shares, all over the lid shades and the perfect brown tones to deepen up the crease and outer corner. I love it and I highly recommend it.

Now for lips the Maybelline Color Drama in Minimalist Lip Crayon has been the only thing I've worn on my lips this month, other than my next product...

... In this months Glossybox the Lollipops Délicieuse Lip Balm iby far my favourite product and I have been using it every single day. It doesn't feel sticky and it moisturises my lips so well and lasts for a while which is great. 

Moving onto skincare, the Soap & Glory Eye Roll On has been such a great tool in reducing puffiness and soothing the entire eye area. It's been quite a rough month in lots of ways but this has helped so much.

As for body products the St Tropez In Shower Gradual Tanner has been such a convenient product to keep a tan topped up and looking it's best. 

I discovered the new Batiste Stylist Range this month and I have been so impressed. My favourites are the Volumising Spray and the Texturising Spray as they just add such amazing body to my hair without looking or feeling like I have a shed load of product in my hair. You have to make sure you don't apply too much though otherwise they can make your hair feel gross and dirty and crunchy. I also have the Frizz Tamer and the Heat Shine Spray  which are also great products.

I always like to round up the months posts and events in my monthly faves so here goes:
