I can’t believe July has come to an end already. This is the month I always look forward to as it’s my birthday month and it’s completely flown by but that shouldn’t be any surprise now as 2016 is just going too fast. What is happening!? Before we know it it’ll be Christmas! Anyway, this month’s favourites are a bit of a mix between new purchases and old loves that I’ve rediscovered..
MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick | £15.50 | LINK
In the last few months, I’ve been reaching for my MAC Brave lipstick a hell of a lot and completely abandoning all other lip products in my collection. I’m just obsessed with it and it’s gorgeous finish. However, this month I’ve gone back to using other lip products including my coral favourite, Vegas Volt. A perfect summer shade, it’s quite bright for me and is certainly the boldest lipstick I own. As MAC say, it’s a full power coral and I definitely agree. Vegas Volt is an Amplified Creme formula which means it’s super creamy and comfortable with highly pigmented colour. Basically, it packs a punch!
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel Cream | £27.00 | LINK
This gel cream from bareMinerals is my favourite summer base so as you can imagine, I’m pretty sad it’s nearly all used up! The best of a BB, CC and tinted moisturiser all in one, this cream is perfect for when you don’t want to slap on a full coverage foundation and not just in the summer! The coverage is amazing, light but covers all imperfections and adds a healthy looking glow to the skin. I’ll definitely be buying another one!
L’Oreal Brow Artist Shaper Pencil | £4.99 | LINK
This pencil has made eyebrow filling in so much easier for me! I always struggled to get them looking nice but now it’s an absolute breeze. This 3 in 1 pencil has a pencil to fill, a clear wax to fix and a brush on the lid cap to brush through brows.
Smashbox X-Rated Mascara | £19.50 (Full size) | LINK
Whenever Emerald Street
offer us the chance to get our hands on some freebie samples, I jump at the chance especially when it involves makeup from brands I’m yet to try like Smashbox. The X-Rated Mascara is considered to be Smashbox’s ‘Triple Threat’ mascara. It isolates, magnifies and mega coats each lash with its fibre loaded formula. The result is volumised, thick, dramatic lashes. This is my new favourite mascara! I love the full-size packaging too!
Lancome Energie De Vie Nuit The Sleeping Mask | £42.00 (Full size) | LINK
Again, another sample from Emerald Street. The Lancome Energie De Vie Sleeping Mask is an overnight melt in face mask. The result is hydrated, plumped and fresh looking skin. This mask instantly breaks into water droplets to pump up skin moisture in just 10 minutes. It’s really lovely and I can see myself buying the full-size version when my sample runs out.
L’Oreal Color Riche Collection Lipstick in Eva’s Delicate Rose | £6.99 | LINK
I’ve already mentioned this beautiful lipstick in my Recent Makeup & Skincare buys post
, so I’ll keep this short and sweet! A matte lipstick that is super comfortable and non-drying, Eva’s Delicate Rose
is a gorgeous rosy pink shade. It’s absolutely gorgeous.
New Look Black Double Bar Cat Eye Sunglasses | £4.49 | LINK
I was out shopping recently and came across these sunglasses in New Look. They were already a bargain however they were on sale so they were even cheaper. I loved the shape and how they looked on so I had to have them. Whether or not they’ll last a long time is to be seen but I’ll be happy if they just last for this summer. I love them!
