I cannot believe it’s time for another monthly favourites and it’s August… where is the time going?! This month I went on my honeymoon, so most of my favourites I had with me on my holidays and I used them day in day out!
Make Up Favourites
Ren – Keep Young and Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot
Now I’ll be honest with you and admit that I don’t 100% know what this is or is supposed to do… but I do know that it makes my skin so incredibly soft and firmer feeling when I use it! It’s almost like applying a face mask to begin with as it tightens your face and then settles in to leave glowing, beautiful skin. I got this sample in my M&S Beauty Box and when I run out I’ll definitely be purchasing the full size.
The Body Shop – Vitamin E Moisture Lotion
I bought this before my honeymoon as it had SPF 15 in it, which I thought would be perfect to wear either on it’s own or underneath my foundation as my skin gets very dry in the sun. It’s so easy to rub in, it melted into my skin and is so moisturising. I’m still using this everyday now I’m home even on cloudier days, so that my skin is protected and moisturised.
Milani Baked Blush – Luminoso
I picked this up when I was in New York as I’d heard rave reviews from other bloggers and youtubers and it hasn’t let me down! It’s so pigmented that you only need the tiniest bit to give you a gorgeous natural glow. The colour is really flattering and it’s almost like it has brightening particles within it which makes you look radiant all day.
Becca Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette
I want to do a full blog post review on this so I won’t say too much about it now, other than how much I love it! It is by far the most pigmented blushers and highlighters I’ve ever used and it’s just beautiful.
From L – R – Prosecco Pop, Champagne Pop, Pamplemousse, Amaretto, Rose Spritz
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick – Back Talk
Topshop Lipstick – Watermelon (Can’t find online but check in stores)
I was loving two lipsticks in July, both very different. Urban Decay’s backtalk is a purple /pink nude which works perfectly for everyday. It’s a comfort matte formula and it lives up to this name. I rarely wear matte lipsticks because they’re so drying, but this is really creamy and long wearing.
The other lipstick I’ve been wearing is Watermelon which is a gorgeous pink/red lipstick and is so flattering. I wore it a lot in the evenings but also in the daytime if I was feeling more daring and I always got so many compliments when I did! It’s a pink enough red to not be too in your face and it goes so well with a tan, so it’s perfect for summertime.
L-R – Backtalk and Watermelon
My husband bought me a Crosley record player for my birthday this year and I’ve been slowly collecting LPs for it. When we were in Boston we went into Urban Outfitters and I found this little gem and I’ve never been happier! I’m a complete 90s girl through and through and I was obsessed (probably like most of you!) with the Spice Girls, so I’ve been playing this tons and it’s great listening to it on an old school record.
I’ve got two TV favourites; one being Stranger Things on Netflix which i started right at the end of the month and finished it in approximately 3 days! It’s so scary but I literally couldn’t stop watching as I wanted to know what was going on. I just hope there will be a 2nd series as it all finished way too quickly!
The 2nd one is Pretty Little Liars; I’ve been investing in this show since the very beginning for what feels like 10728229 years…! But season 7 has just been incredible so far and it’s well worth a watch even though it may drive you slightly mad with all the twists and turns!
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about all of my monthly favourites and I’ll see you in my next post!
