JULY FAVOURITES

Oh look, it's that time already! Since buying too much make up, I put myself on a ban. No more make up unless I have absolutely run out of something like foundation/concealer/powder. I have been very well behaved as well... except from buying nail polish yesterday because Superdrug had 3 for 2 but we'll just ignore that little slip up.



First thing I've been loving is this Blush By 3 Sweet Cheeks palette from the latest Sleek Candy Collection. I've mentioned before how I've got really into blush recently and this handy little palette has a cream, matte and slightly shimmery blush. From left to right the shades are Candy Floss, Dolly Mixture and Cupcake, so cute! The colours, as with all Sleek blushes, are super pigmented and last well. You can apply them subtly or build them as intense as you like. I really like Cupcake the most and Dolly Mixture is really nice just for a little hint of colour on lazy days. I think it was about £10 but for 3 different blushes, absolute bargain.


I wrote about my Clarins purchases here. I've been really enjoying using these products together this month. They just feel a lot more luxurious on my skin as opposed to Boots branded products and other drugstore brands I had been using. Can't fully get used to the smell of the toner still but I feel like it does a much better job than other products I've used. I am trying to use them every few days to make them last but I do love them.


Kind of cheating a little bit here as I haven't actually used these products but the ones I have used, I foolishly threw the packet away. Recently I have got so into using face masks. I just want to do them every day and have to restrain myself. I try and just leave it for a Saturday or Sunday night but I'm loving them. I got these 2 along with another 2 from Superdrug. I think they're 99p each and they were on offer when I bought them. I got about 3/4 uses out of the other packs and they were brilliant. I had a cucumber peel off mask which was really soothing and a de-stressing mud mask which has definitely been my favourite. It left my skin so soft. So I have high hopes for these 2 and I would definitely recommend picking up some of these.


The Maybelline Color Tattoos, especially this shade in On and On Bronze, have been insanely raved about. I got the shade Permanent Taupe quite a while ago and really liked that. It's a matte browny-grey colour and perfect for lazy days when you can't really be bothered blending eyeshadows together. I caved and bought this popular shade and I totally get the hype! It's a beautiful, shimmery gold-bronze colour that can be built up so easily to get a good solid block of colour but looks lovely just with one swipe across the lid. I like these because they do last all day without primer and you don't even need a brush to use them and they still look great.
I got the eyelash curlers from ELF and they are the mini eyelash curlers. I had my last pair for years, literally since I was about 13, so I thought it was time for a new pair. The "grabby bit" (great technical term there...) is tiny and covers about a third of the lash line meaning you can get right into the corner so that all the lashes get gripped and curled. My eyelashes are pretty long and I rarely curl them at all to be honest, but the results from these are amazing.
Lastly, the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer. I have had this for months. I think I might have got it when it was released and I have always liked it and every now and then I'll grab it to use just because it's there but this month, for some reason, I've really been loving it. It's a brilliant under eye concealer and I feel it really brightens the eye and it has great coverage. I don't think I'd ever paid that much attention to the coverage before, I was just using it, but I noticed how well it covered the dark circles I've got and I've been using it practically every day since.

Just a few products this month. What have you been loving?
