July Favourites!

Hey Ladies,

I ideally would have liked to have done this as a YouTube video but i'm extremely lazy & that's the reason I haven't filmed my makeup tutorial this weekend plus I lost my Mac 210 eyeliner brush which I am gutted about, I use it everyday. I can't do any online spending (don't ask) & don't have a Mac near me so can't get a new one. Gutted!

Anyway on to my July Favourites!

Neal's Yard Orange Flower Facial Wash
This was recently in the Asos sale so I snapped it up, It smells gorgeous, very gentle & extremely effective. I very much enjoy using this product.

Mac Expensive Pink Eyeshadow
I purchased this at duty free & I am in love with it, pink is a colour I tend to avoid in all areas of life, I just think it doesn't suit me (apart from hot pink lips on a night out) On first sight this is a darkish pink, once its swatched its a pink but has a peachy gold sheen to it so looks amazing on me! Have been wearing it everyday on its own! love it!

Paul Mitchell Super Strong Liquid Treatment
I just randomly added this to my shopping cart one day to get free shipping & I am so glad I did. You just spray it in to damp hair and it is supposed to strengthen & repair the hair. It works! My hair becomes super easy to brush through & feels thicker & stronger!

Mac Face & Body Foundation
This has been getting some attention recently & I'm glad it has, I've been using this for ages, I have 2 bottles of it, a darker one I always use when I'm tanned & then my normal skin tone for when my skins behaving & I can get away with a lighter coverage. It stays put all day & looks unbelievably natural & is great if you're not a fan of tinted moisturisers.

Bare Minerals Matte Foundation
I love this as a setting powder for either a tinted moisturiser or the Face & Body if I want a little more coverage. I hate mineral makeup foundations on their own as they don't last more than 2 hours on my skin but as setting powders I love them.

StriVectin SD Eye Cream
I love this eye cream, it's really nourishing without sitting on the skin ages, so I can use it in the morning & it doesn't mess with my makeup. I can't speak about the benefits of reducing wrinkles or things like that as I'm 23 & don't have them, but I always say prevention is better than trying to fix later on.

So there are my favourites, pretty boring really but I've been wearing minimal makeup as i am tanned! If you want a full review on any of the products please let me know, also let me know your current favourites I love discovering new products!

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend, I personally haven't left the house, just relaxed!


  1. Great post! I love the attention that MAC Face & Body has been getting but i'm a bit wary about purchasing it because of the expiry date?

  2. expensive pink is one of my daily favorites! I've also been wanting to try the mac face and body.

  3. Expensive pink is really pretty :) I always swatch it instore and marvel over how gorgeous it is, but am yet to pick it up

  4. Oh I love expensive pink...bought it last year sometime. You've just reminded me that I haven't worn eye makeup (except mascara, but thats assumed right) for months and months!! So guess that is being dug out at the weekend... :o)
