FAVOURITES: August 2016


Elegant Touch Rosie Bea Hibiscus Nails £5.49 (Link)
I have to admit i've never heard of Rosie Bea before these nails showed up on my welcome matt so I can't claim any particular blogger bias, Elegant Touch have always been my favoured press on nail brand and these almond coral beauties have been the perfect speed manicure for my summer occasions. I like them particularly because they're not too big or long like most almond shaped press on nails, the petite-ness means they don't look overly fake and the Elegant Touch glue means you never have one ping off as it's the best I've come across.

Beuti Beauty Sleep Elixir £42 (Link)
This oil is perfect for all skin types, if you have dry skin it will hydrate your complexion leaving you with glowing skin day and night, if your skin is more blemish prone the anti-inflammatory ingredients help heal and calm the skin. It is packed with 14 different plant oils,100% natural and made in the UK and will do your skin world's of good.

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Watermelon Soda £16 (Link)
There has been some controversy surrounding Jeffree Star and his cosmetics brand so I wasn't really interested in trying the products but apparently all it takes is for a product to smell like watermelon for me to snap it up, I have to say I had a very smooth transaction and my order arrived within a week from the States which I was pleasantly surprised by. The lipstick itself is a gorgeous neon watermelon pink, the smell is really good as expected and in terms of formula it is slightly streaky which you can even out easily, it's not the most drying liquid lipstick i've ever used but not the most hydrating either and the lasting power is really good. I'd like to try a more subdued colour for everyday use but for a night out this colour rocks and lasts all night. UPDATE - BeautyBay are now stocking a selection of his products so easier to get hold of.

Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye and Cheek Palette in Fair/ Light £28 (Link)
I have been obsessed with this palette since receiving it, containing five shadows and two blushes the Perfect Me, Perfect Hue palettes come in four shades each designed to work with your own skin tone for a natural look but with an extra hue to create a more dramatic look. I love this palette, having everything in one place with a big mirror beats all my other palettes hands down so I've been using this none stop. The decision to make the base colour shadow in a larger pan is genius as it's the one I always run out of first, the shadows are so soft and blend-able and the blushes really lift the complexion.

Essie Nail Polishes in Angora Cardi (Link) and Cocktail Bling (Link) £7.99 each
I wouldn't say Angora Cardi is the most summery shade however it's one that I searched high and low for having seen a picture on pinterest of these beautiful dusty rose nails which is so sophisticated and flattering dare I say the perfect autumn shade. Cocktail Bling is a gorgeous grey toned light blue perfect for any season and the blue equivalent of my all time favourite Essie shade Maximillian Strasse Her.

Tigi S-Factor True Lasting Colour Oil £14.65 (Link)
I recently chopped off most of my hair and lightened the colour,  I've managed to find the perfect method for no heat curls so finding this hair oil has been instrumental in this as it conditions, detangles and smooths my hair without adding any weight so my curls stay in tact all day and my hair gets all the TLC it needs.

Those have been my monthly favourites, another whirl wind month with no time for blogging and I swear this year will be over before we know it which is scary, although I'm looking forward to September and the start of jumper and tight season (is it bad that i've already bought two coats and jumpers already?).
