So as you can guess I combining my June & July monthly favourites because I was away for most of July (see travel blogs here) and I didn't get a chance to get my June favourites up before I left! So without further rambling, here's my monthly favourites...
Sleek Highlight Kit
It is only in recent months I have been using this and I simply love it! The colours are great for any skin tone and the lilac shade is stunning! Who knew purple cheekbones would be a thing! :)
You get one cream and three powder highlights which are pigmented and blend effortlessly. It is also super affordable which is always a bonus!
Amazing Shine 311T Lashes
These lashes are almost identical to the Ardell Demi Wispies a cult favourite among most beauty gurus! I actually prefer these as they are more 'wispy' and are super light you hardly know you have false lashes on. Costing only €3 they don't break the bank and I've worn mine up to 5 times!! Amazing Shine is Amazing!
Smashbox Dark Contour Kit
I wasn't sure whether I would like this contour kit however I have been using this compact as eyeshadows and the three of them together create the most beautiful burnt smokey eye! The deep red/brown is stunning as a crease colour and I am so glad I purchased it as I will be taking this product to a wedding in England in a few weeks. Three shadows, one simple compact travel makeup look!
YSL Le Teint Encre de Peau
*sexy french voice* Le Teint Encre de Peau is my newest obsession when it comes to foundation. I purchased this foundation for my makeup kit and anyone I have used it on has commented on how nice it feels on the skin. It is super lightweight with good coverage that works on all skin types. Aside from the top quality product the packaging is also classy and elegant. It is pricey at €40 however, I always recommend investing in a good foundation. Have a good base and everything will look good on it!
Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipstick
An old favourite of mine, these bad boys have resurfaced and I have fallen for them all over again! Coming in a range of shades they are pigmented and feel like velvet. This Melted Ruby colour is my favourite. It is the perfect red and the formula does not dry out your lips at all. A common problem for most liquid lipsticks.
Ted Baker Bodyspray
I bought this to bring with me on holidays instead of expensive perfume and it smells beautiful. Real fruity and fresh and it was approximately €5! Perfect for travel. I picked it up in the 'holiday 3for2' section in Boots.
MAC 217 Brush
I finally caved and purchased the much raved about 217 brush. It is a complete game changer! The packed bristles and domed shape make packing on colour and blending a dream. I get the hype and completely agree. It is a great little piece to have in your brush collection.
NARS Laguna/Orgasm Duo
I picked this up in Prague Train Station and it has been used on the daily since I got home. Laguna bronzer is a favourite of mine anyways but I never tried the Orgasm blush. Again, in my opinion it is worth the hype is gets as it suits everyone and has a slight gold shimmer which looks beautiful on the skin. The compact is super handy as you have two great cheek products in one small duo!
I know this was a long one so if you are still reading thank you for sticking with this! All these products mention have been reached for on a daily basis and they are a mixture of both high end and affordable.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post. What were your favourites this month? Let me know!
Until next time,
