July Beauty Favourites

July Beauty Favourites

This month here in England we have had very much deserved heatwave and the birth of the beautiful Baby Cambridge - George Alexander Louis (ahhhhhh!) and on top of all that, I have recently celebrated my 21st Birthday! And yes it is nearly the end of July and once again Im asking myself where on earth this month has gone?! I have been really looking forward to this post, as this month I have come across some really amazing beauty buys!


I have raved about this face mask from Superdrug previsouly here on my blog - if you want to read the full review click here (you would be silly not too!). Recently however, I have struggled to get my hands on these little packets of face mask heaven, as they have sold out or aren't stocked in any local Superdrugs close to where I live. So I bought a few online this month, as Superdrug had free delivery.... I couldn't resist! Also, I have recently discovered what this face mask smells similar too - Laura Mercier Creme Brulee Souffle Body Cream, which smells utterly divine! This is my go to face mask!

I have worn this transparent powder from MAC nearly every day this month - I can't get enough of it! This powder sets my foundation and concealer perfectly and has a flawless finish! I normally like to use my Rimmel Stay Matte powder, but have found that this loose finishing powder is a lot more silky and although I wouldn't say my Rimmel powder is caky, I would say that this loose powder is less detectable. It claims it reduces shine but as I dont have oily skin I cant comment, however my skin is dry and this powder doesn't dry out my skin at all, which I sometimes find other powders can. It also helps minimise my pores, lines and imperfections. I love to apply this powder over my makeup using my Real Techniques powder brush, which works really well. This powder also works great on its own - you also need very little so will last for ages! All in all, I find this finishing powder is rather the cherry on top of the cake of my makeup routine at the moment and makes my skin looks amazing and helps make my makeup last for hours! The only downside of this product, is that it can be messy as it is a loose powder, but you get that with most loose powders - so I can overlook that! If you are looking for a good finishing powder, give this one a try!

I recently bought the BareMinerals Insider Collection: Whipped Velvet which if you have the money is most defiantly worth a buy! And one of the products I recived in this goody box was BareMinerals Flawless Definition Curl & Length Mascara (gosh what a long name!) and I have been lurr-vvv-inggg it and become slightly obsessed! I would rate this above all my mascaras, including my much loved Max Factor false lash effect - that is saying something! It does exactly what is says in the name, it defines every single one of my lashes in just one coat and curls them very subtly and adds such amazing length to my lashes. I love the fact that you see results in just a couple of coats! It doesn't clump, smudge or flake! I also find I dont necessarily need to use my eyelash curlers, which is always plus! I also love the brush and Im not normally one for these types of brushes as I'm very picky when it comes to mascara! I just love everything about this mascara - I cant fault it! 


Everyone must buy this!!!! No word of a lie, I LOVE this product, it truly is a miracle! I bought this product when it first came out a couple of months back and never actually used it and on a whim at the beginning of this month, I picked it up and finally used it and boy am I glad I did! It is a 5 in 1 BB eye Cream and for those who dont know what a BB Cream is I will just briefly explain: a BB Cream is a beauty balm which can help rid blemishes whilst working like a skin enhancing tinted moisturiser and this little roll in is ultra clever and gives 5 immediate results which I stand by and say works! 1. Hides dark circles 2. Reduces appearance of bags 3. Fine lines appear less visible 4. Illuminates 5. Hydrates. It leaves my under eye area moisturised and if extra coverage is needed I just add an extra layer. I love this and give it 5/5! Best beauty buy this month - Superdrug currently have this product on offer!

These fab little crayon sticks from Bourjois have gone down a storm since being released here in the UK. We can't get enough of them! If you haven't invested in one, you must! I got the colour Peach on the Beach and if you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know just how much I love all things orange/coral this summer! It is light, no sticky and is ultra hydrating! The colour payoff is great and when I have worn this I have been asked what Im wearing on my lips, it is such a pretty colour - I have been wearing it nearly everyday! I much prefer this to Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (another long name!). It is a lot more hydrating and gives a lovely glossy finish! I am very much looking forward to Bourjois brining out a few more colours! 


Another fantastic product from Liz Earle! After loving the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and running out, I was bought the cleanser, toner and moisturiser for my birthday and I have been loving this moisturiser! Within just one use I have seen a noticeable difference in my skin (yes just one use!) Firstly I love the smell, it is fresh and spa like (does that make sense?) it is only subtle so dont be put off! It leaves my skin feeling soft, nourished and a little goes a long way! It also feels very luxurious and I have tried a few other high end moisturisers from Clinique and Estee Lauder, but I dont think I will ever look back now! It leaves no residue, no stickiness and no shine! When I use it with in conjunction with the cleanser and toner I feel like Im giving myself a mini facial! It also works well under my makeup, which is an added bonus and when used alone leaves my complexion glowing! If you have sensitive or dry skin I highly recommend this moisturiser! Liz Earle also do the same moisturiser for different skin types so check it out!
