July Beauty Favourites

(click images to make them bigger)

Hello lovelies.

So today I am going to be showing you some of the things I have been loving throughout the month of July. There is quite a few so I warn you now that this may be a slightly long post. Sorry!


MAC Pro Longwear Concealer - NW15 - Buy here.
I have been really loving this concealer over the past few weeks and it is definitely one of the best, if not the best concealer I have tried. It dries to a very matte finish, and I have normal to dry skin but haven't had too much of a problem with this. It looks very nice on the skin and does last all day long.

MAC Lipstick - Kinda Sexy (Matte) - Buy here.
This is a gorgeous brown colour, with a very slight red undertone to it, which I find could work on any skin tone. It is a matte lipstick, however I don't find it is too drying, however I do still wear a lip balm under it.

MAC Lipstick - See Sheer (Lustre) - Buy here.
I picked this one up from hearing good things about it and really do love it. It is just a muted red, which can be built up for more colour. It is a Lustre finish and it is very shiny and glossy on the lips, which I love!

Revlon Lip Butter - Peach Parfait - Buy here.
I am a big fan of the Revlon lip butters and this one is my favourite out of the ones I own. It is a gorgeous peachy pink with gold shimmer in. I have used this one the most and it looks very nice on the lips. 


Benefit 'Hoola' Bronzer - Buy here.
I recently got a sample of this in a kit and loved it so much I brought the full size. I really do love this bronzer. It lasts all day, is a gorgeous shade that I don't find is too dark or too orange. It is also fully matte, which is super good because I hate shimmery bronzers.

NYX Cream Blush - Boho Chic- Buy here.
The colour of this is absolutely perfect for me, because it is my favourite colour in a blush. It is just a light pink, which would look gorgeous on pale skin tones. It is very creamy and blends nicely.

Maybelline Color Tattoo - Bad To The Bronze - Buy here.
If you are in the UK I think this shade is called 'On and on Bronze' instead, as they have different names here compared to America. (Don't ask me why!) But I love this colour and is just a bronze with a slight shimmer to it. It is just so easy to throw on and blends gorgeous-ly on the lids. It really does last ages too!

EOS Lip Balm - Summer Fruits - Buy here.
I absolutely adore these lip balms and this is my favourite out of the two that I own. They smell and taste gorgeous and really do moisturise my lips well. They have a slight waxy feel to them, which I personally like and think it makes them stay on a lot longer.

Bourjois Waterproof Mascara - Black - (Couldn't find a link - sorry!)
I have been wearing this mascara a lot recently and think it is a really good Summer mascara, especially if you are going on holiday. It does seem to hold up pretty well and not smudge on the eyes. It does lengthen my lashes well but still looks very natural.


Star Gazer Nail Polish - 305 - Buy here.
This is the most gorgeous purple colour which has lots of different coloured shimmers in it. I like how it can look a different colour in different lights, which makes it really unique!

Topshop Nail Polish - Moving House - Buy here.
This is just a terracotta/brick colour and it is so different to any of my other polishes, I just love it.

Topshop Nail Polish - Awol - Buy here.
I have this on my toes currently and I love it. Its just a gorgeous bright blue and a must-have for Summer :)

Models Own Hed Kandi Nail Polish - Ibiza Mix - Buy here.
This is absolutely stunning and can be worn over any colour. It has different sized glitters of all different colours and looks so so pretty. My fave glitter top coat!

Models Own Nail Polish - Feeling Blue - Buy here.
This is another gorgeous blue colour and is also perfect for the Summer. I love this one and wear it lots!


B & BW 'Bali Mango' Body Mist - (Couldn't find a link - sorry!)
This is the perfect Summer scent and is super fruity. It smells like strawberries and mangoes and is absolutely gorgeous! As you can tell, I have used rather a lot of this but I do love it lots!

Johnson's Baby Shampoo - Buy here.
I use this to clean my brushes and it is absolutely amazing. It's super cheap and works wonders!

Simple Refreshing Facial Wash 150ml - Buy here.
This is ridiculously cheap and is my favourite face wash. I just use a makeup wipe to remove my makeup, then use this and it really makes my skin feel so fresh and clean. 

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Exfoliating Pads - Buy here.
I have used this for a while and have gone through a good few pots of these. They are very gentle and I use them about 3-4 times a week and then exfoliate properly once a week. It just gets rid of any makeup left over and makes my skin feel very soft.

So sorry this post was so long but I did have a lot of  favourites this month!
Thank you for reading!
Much love, xx
