I have discovered many new beauty products in the months of June and July so here are my favourites from many many shopping trips done over the summer months and the odd purchase on my lunch break from work. It had to be done.. haha. I also have a couple of random favourites to share, here I go!!
MAYBELLINE MASTER SCULPT BRONZER IN LIGHT/MEDIUM
This product was one of the most hyped on it's release at the start of summer. I was wandering through my local Boots and I instantly spotted this product, the packaging was unique and I seen Mollie King was the face of the brand so I decided to give it a go and I LOVED IT. Usually I was never a big contour fan, actually I used to skip the process when applying my make-up but after using this product it has changed my whole outlook on contouring and It has become one of my favourite parts of my make-up. This colour match was perfect for me as it suited my base and applied easily onto my skin with an angled brush. This powder duo is well worth picking up next time you are in Boots. I have recently used this product in my first ever Youtube video if you want to see me applying it. Here's the link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yK1EP24J4iQ
MAC LIP PENCIL IN BRICK
I picked this lip pencil up in May and I have been in love with it ever since, I always loved the MAC lip pencils but I needed the perfect red lip liner in my collection and I think I have found it in this MAC Lip liner. As usual their Lip liners are super soft and easily applied to the lips and this shade is a perfect match with one of my favourite lipsticks Russian Red. I have been wearing this combination for most of the summer months, truly amazing.
Lip-Combo: Russian Red with MAC Lipliner in 'BRICK'
SLEEP MAKE-UP LIPSTICK IN 'VAMP'
This lipstick is the perfect Dark Red colour. I have been looking for a colour like this for ages and I MEAN AGES! I love Sleek and their lipsticks are unbelievable quality for such a reasonable price. Their formula is very similar to MAC lipsticks and this lipstick is in my favourite finish Matte and I have been wearing it many times over the past couple of weeks!
I feel sometimes Essence don't get enough credit for their products, every product of Essence I have used has been amazing and this mascara is no exception. The wand is basic but gives high volume on the lashes and I love Jet Black colour of this product, perfect for anyone looking for a great mascara on a small budget. I picked this mascara up for less than €5, now thats a bargain!!
NIVEA 2 IN 1 CLEANSER AND TONER
This product has been a lifesaver when it comes to taking off my make-up, it is refreshing on the skin and in one swipe takes off all harsh make-up. I am lazy when it comes to a full skincare routine and having a toner and cleanser in one really does take the chore out of taking my make-up off at night, such an affordable product, that gives my skin amazing results.
L'OREAL INFALLIBLE MATTE FOUNDATION IN '11 VANILLA'
This foundation is incredible, I have been using it for a while now and I mix it with my MAC Studio Fix and It gives me a nice glow while still keeping my make-up matte through out the day.
This product is high coverage and will cover any blemishes or spots that us girls would like to keep hidden so if you are looking for a great foundation be sure to try this one, you won't be disappointed!
HERBAL ESSENCES 'HELLO HYDRATION INTENSIVE HAIR MASK
This stuff has help my hair out in many ways and it smells amazing. Just think of summer in a big blue tub. It helps to prevent dry and damaged hair and it gives your hair that boost of hydration it needs especially in the summer time. This product is nourishing and leaves your hair unbelievably soft and smelling great. I like to use this product at least once or twice a week. It helps your hair if you are a frequent user of curlers or straightener as it leaves the hair protected and replenished from just one try.
RANDOM FAVOURITES : TV AND MUSIC
This program has literally taken over my life since I started to watch it over the month of July. I only started season 1 at the start of July and now I am on season 4. That sounds unbelievably crazy. This program has so much drama, I cant stop watching episode after episode (I watched 10 episodes in one night) Obsessed isn't the word. Everyday I can't wait to get home and jump into my PJ'S and start watching it on Netflix. My goal is to have all seasons finished by the time school starts again. Wish me luck! I feel I am up for that challenge. If you haven't considered watching Gossip Girl please do! If you are wondering where you can find Gossip Girl all 6 seasons are available on Netflix. GO.
I have been listening to Whitney the last couple of weeks, her music is classic and her voice blows me away every time I listen to her songs. Particular songs I have been listening to:
'How Will I Know'
'Saving All My Love For You'
'Million Dollar Bill'
'Im Every Woman'
Just a bit excited Ella's album is coming out on the 28th of August, I have been listening to her Radio 1 covers and her other original songs non-stop. I love Ella's tone and her stage presence is unreal. I have been listening to : HER NEW SINGLE 'Good Times' 'All About You' and 'Even If' and
'Worry About Me' in particular this month.
