July Favourites!

Wednesday, 30 July 2014

Hey everyone!

I hope you're all doing well. July has gone by SO fast! It's possibly been the hottest month in England for a long while. Now that July has come to an end, I'm going to show you all what I've been loving this month.

It's fair to say I have a lot of favourites this month, so this post might be a little longer than usual but I'll try to get through each favourite quickly!

MAC Lipliner - Whirl

I have been loving the 90's dark nude lip and I really wanted a nude coloured lip liner to work with. I heard Kylie Jenner herself uses this lipliner and I have to say, it looks so pretty. It's a nudey rose colour and would compliment most skin tones. The texture is quite matte but not drying on the lips. Definitely one of my favourite purchases this month.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Liner - Nude

This is the perfect eyeliner for the water liner. It instantly makes your eyes appear bigger and because it is waterproof, it does not budge. It's also a bargain at £3.99 a pop.

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream (27 Honey Beige)

I've previously mentioned this in a previous BB creams post. It is a lovely (in my opinion) full coverage BB cream. I got this in the shade Honey Beige, which has a yellow/golden undertone. The next shade down was way too red/beige!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer (NC30)

Arguably the best high end concealer on the market in my opinion. I've tried and tested a number of concealers but none really match up to MAC's pro longwear. It lasts all day and gives the most flawless coverage.

Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado

This is a nice eye cream that I have been loving this month. It hydrates the undereye area and acts as the perfect base for a bright concealer/highlighter.

L'Oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara - Black

This has definitely been my favourite mascara this month. It is such good quality and has a cheap price tag. It makes your eyelashes look very black, voluminous, thicker and longer than they naturally are. 

MAC Face & Body Foundation (C5)

This is my new favourite summer foundation. It is such a light sheer foundation with a dewy finish that makes your skin look natural and glowy. This is one of the first foundations I've used where it actually does look like your skin but better. This foundation is particularly great for people with good skin, as it looks so flawless. However, you can also use a bit of concealer beforehand to cover any blemishes. 

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder (Golden Sand)

This is a good powder to set your foundation with. The texture is very sheer and light which means you won't get any blotchiness that you can sometimes get with other powders. It sets the foundation and controls oil very well. It would be nice if there were more yellow toned shades available as this one is quite beige.

Ben Nye Luxury Powder (Banana)

The highly raved about Ben Nye Banana Powder made famous by Kim Kardashian. I absolutely LOVE this powder for my under eyes and highlighted areas. I mentioned this in a previous haul post and thought it deserved another mention because it is that amazing. This powder is great for those with a yellow/golden/olive undertone as it enhances your natural features.

Sleek Contour Kit (Medium)

This is such an amazing little compact contour duo. The kit comes with a contour shade and a pink highlighter. For the price, you can't really go wrong. It's affordable and works just as well as any high end contour product.

Barry M Dazzle Dust (Tan)

I had been looking for a drugstore/high street loose glitter/pigment that wasn't too expensive. This Barry M Dazzle Dust did not disappoint. It's very pigmented and looks gorgeous on the eyes. I got this in tan which is a golden taupe colour. 

Collection 2000 Extreme 24HR Felt Tip Eyeliner (Black)

This is the best felt tip applicator eyeliner I have come across! It has the most perfect point and has great colour payoff. I definitely recommend this for those on a budget.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (03 Warm Medium)

This is one of the best drugstore/high street concealers. Obviously it's not as good as MAC's pro longwear but for the price it is an actual godsend! It covers imperfections so well without looking too heavy or cakey. It is also a great concealer for under the eyes.

Sigma F86 Tapered Kabuki Brush

I love this brush so much. I use it to blend out my concealer under my eyes and it makes the finish look so flawless. I would say it is on par with the beauty blender, which I also love.

Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush

This brush has fast become my favourite brush for applying foundation. It makes the foundation blend so seamlessly into your skin without it looking cakey. Definitely a top favourite this month!

Zoeva 109 Face Paint Brush

I love to use this brush for contouring. It is the perfect shape to carve out your cheekbones. I love the whole Zoeva range - I also purchased the petite crease and blending brush which I also adore and highly recommend. Zoeva brushes are also incredibly affordable and great for those who don't want to spend too much on make-up brushes.
