July Favourites



So, I am a little late in posting my favourites but to be honest I didn't actually realise how far through August we were! I mean, August crept up on us but now September is slowly approaching, eeek. Anyway, this is what I have been loving throughout July, and up until now! 

Topshop Matte Nails in Confess - 

I can't remember what price this was but I am sure I got it in the sale for about £2, but I absolutely love it! It is the perfect shade to express 'its still summer but not really' and the application is really nice. Plus it only needs 2 coats and you are good to go! I also love the frosted packaging to match it's texture. *One point to topshop*

Sleek Contour Kit (£6.49) -

Ahh, a product that I really cannot live without! The contour shade is perfect because you can apply it really light, if you are pale skinned like myself, but you can really build this up! I have had this for around 3 months and it looks like I just bought it! However the highlighter is a little shimmery, but it still works a treat for the price!  

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser (£7.99) - 

My trustworthy primer, you can use this alone, or underneath make-up, and it really does provide a clean, smooth base to apply your foundation on! It leaves my face pore-less and allows me to apply my foundation like a dream. While I do think it is a little pricey, it really isn't in comparison to some higher end products. Plus, a little goes a long way in terms of this!

Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue (£3.49) - 

I was a little sceptical when first purchasing this, however I am so glad I bit the bullet and bought it! This has been my lip saviour and I cannot leave the house without it! I have it in too cool but I believe it comes in 3 other shades which I will definitely be getting. Mine is very mint flavoured but doesn't irritate my lips and keeps them nicely moisturised. 

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 38 (£5.49) - 

Pretty sure I have spoken about this before but it us just a perfectly wearable pinky/nude lipstick that basically matches anything I put on! It keeps my lips moisturised and the colour is surprisingly long lasting, highly recommend this, and well basically all the Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks because I just love them!

Parlor Sea Salt Spray - 

I do not know the price of this as I received mine in a birch box. If you love this smell of freshly cut grass then this will be very appealing because it smells like just that! The size is perfect for travel and it really does make my hair effortless to style. However it does make my hair feel a little knotted but I get that with all sea salt sprays!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (£7.99) -

I have spoken about this before but there is no way that I couldn't include it! It is the perfect mascara for my lashes as it gives them the perfect balance of length, curl and volume - basically just try it and see for yourself! 

EcoTool's Eye Enhancing Duo Brush Set (£6.99) - 

I have been using these eye shadow brushes religiously for about 2 months now...they are that good. Whilst I only own a few others these are by far the best I have tried for the extremely small price tag! Plus they are the perfect set for travelling! The set includes a shape and define brush along with a blend and smudge brush, and not to mention that they are cruelty free. If you want a pair of inexpensive, good quality brushes then look no further!

What have you been loving throughout July?
