|July 2014 Makeup and Beauty Favorites|
This is my first ever favorites post and I have to say that I'm still not exactly sure how monthly favorites are supposed to work! I think some bloggers choose to talk exclusively about new products that they've purchased during the month and which they are currently really enjoying. I've decided to talk about any products that I've been using and loving a lot during the month, regardless of whether they were purchased this week or last year. That way I'll be showcasing not only my newer purchases but also some of my rediscovered old loves and also those things that I'm seriously loving pretty much every month!
Revlon ColorStay Foundation for Oily/Combination Skin (w/ SPF 15) 110 Ivory 30 ml
This foundation is quick and easy to apply with my fingers, has great color match and coverage as well as brilliant lasting power.
Boots Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder Porcelain Ivory 10 g
This is a very mattifying powder that works brilliantly with the little puff provided. It's a good color match for me and not very orange toned unlike many other 'fair' powders I've tried.
Classic Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm .25 oz
This is a super soothing and moisturizing lip balm. I love to wear this before bed or underneath a matte lipstick.
Avon Color Trend Non-Retractable Lipstick in Gone Pink
This was a bargain car boot buy: 10p and brand new! This is really quick and easy to apply and gives a lovely pop of color. Avon Color Trend is something I used to love way back in my teens!
Billion Dollar Brows Hint of Tint Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde 6 ml*
Billion Dollar Brows have gained something of a cult following recently and I have to say I can see why. I love this product! It's effective and takes about 1 minute to apply! It is a little pricey though, so it's not going to be an immediate repurchase for me unfortunately.
Boots Natural Collection Blush in Pink Cloud
Natural collection is a budget busting brand with lots of little gems to offer and this is definitely one of them! I love the way that between a little contour and highlighter, a tiny bit of this brushed onto the apples of my cheeks really brings the whole look together.
Fruits of the Earth Rose Petal Aloe Vera Gel 170 g
This is a cooling and moisturizing Aloe Vera gel that I've been applying liberally to sunburn. I've found that it reduces the redness and takes away some of the uncomfortable burning sensation.
Cleansing Purifying Tonic Lotion for Oily/Combination Skin 200 ml*
This is a skincare favorite that I've been really enjoying for a long time now. It's very refreshing and makes my skin feel supple and smooth after cleansing.
NSPA Rhubarb and Custard Shower & Bath Gel 100 ml
This is a delicious and sweet shower gel that's perfect for summer. I think this was a limited edition scent that came with a Christmas gift set but even though it's a mini, the NSPA shower gels tend to be super long lasting!
Naked Skin Soothing Eye Gel for Sensitive Skin 15 ml
I really like to use an eye gel every morning to revitalize my tired and puffy eyes. I like this one as it contains a lot of natural ingredients and doesn't irritate my eyes.
Organic Surge Blissful Daily Moisturizer 50 ml
This has been my go to daily morning moisturizer for almost a year now. It's light yet hydrating and it wears very well under makeup!
