July Favourites

 I felt like some monthly favourite posts were definitely in need on this blog and July was a pretty good month to start. After being in America for a month and having a birthday in July, there were some new products to be tested out throughout the summer and these were the finalists that I have been using constantly throughout the month of July.

For my birthday I received a Space NK gift card, so as you can probably imagine my excitement, I straight away made quite a hefty order of everything I have wanted but couldn't quite bring myself to spend the money on. I have heard a lot of amazing things about this blush so of course I wanted to give it a little go as well, and I was so glad I did. Lets start with the packaging and the look of the blush. The luxurious gold mirrored case and the stunning marbled blush that lies inside of it already sold it to me before even reading the reviews. Well the picture speaks for it's self. Once you apply this onto the skin it gives a lovely fresh peachy glow to the cheeks. This product has great colour payoff and is the perfect amount of pigmented for a blush. 

MAC Eyeshadow, Naked Lunch
In the summer I will usually opt for a shimmery champagne colour all over the lid. It's simple and takes no time at all, plus with a tan it looks even better.

Nars Bronzing Powder, Laguna
In the summer time my face always ends up being lighter than the rest of my body, as a result bronzer is one of my favourite products in the summer to add a little more colour to my face. After reading many blog posts and watching many YouTube videos of favourite bronzers, I found this one to be the most loved out of the lot. Alas, I added this one to the Space NK order and definitely have not regretted it. It has a slight shimmer but nothing that is too recognisable on the face if you're a fan of the matt bronzers. The colour just right by not being too orange or muddy, the perfect brown bronzer that enhances or creates a summer glow. 

This is my favourite concealer I have tired so far, it is super creamy and blends to perfection. I use this for both under my eyes and on any blemishes, it does the job and never creases so a massive thumbs up from me.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
This has come in so useful since I purchased this. I like to use very large brushes for my top lashes for extra volume, however on the bottom lashes it is a pain to apply as I always find it smudges underneath my eyes and I can never get to the outer corner lashes without making a massive mess of it. This mascara has a tiny brush that gets to the outer corner bottom lashes without smudging when you're applying.

This adds such a lovely finish to your makeup without adding any colour. It is simply a setting powder to eliminate any shine and make your makeup last all day and works amazingly.

This is literally volume in a can. If you are like me and have very lifeless hair this is perfect for you. I just spray it in my roots and a little into the ends, it adds the right amount of texture without it being sticky in your hair (and smells great too).

I was on the look out for a new dry shampoo, but with volume. This is just what I was looking for, it smells good, adds volume and gives your hair that freshly washed look. Ticks all the boxes.
