July Favourites

I don't have many favourites to show you this month! I have been using a lot of the same products I showed you in my June Favourites and I didn't want to just repeat myself, so I decided to keep this months post to new favourites! Over the past week or so I have been buying quite a few new products (whoops) so if I get on with them all, I can imagine next months favourites may be slightly long! 




Let's start with skincare! My first favourite is my Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift and Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm (short and snappy eyy!) I received a sample of this in my Glossybox about 6 months ago and absolutely fell in love with it! I used up my whole 15ml sample pot and immediately ordered the full size pot! I used my 15ml sample on and off for six months because I didn't want to use it up too quickly. The full size is 100ml so this is going to last me ages! This cleanser is a balm that just melts amazingly into the skin and once water is added, it changes to an oil. It feels very luxurious and smells incredible! I love it.


Onto make up, my next favourite is my YSL Touche Eclat highlighter pen. I use this under my eyes and around my nose. I love the way it leaves my skin, so fresh, radiant and awake!


I don't tend to wear eye shadow on a daily basis, however I do like to have some colour so I have been loving Mac Paint Pot in Bare Study. This is a gorgeous champagne colour with gold pearl. I love this as I can apply a small amount for just a wash of colour, or build it up for a more pearly champagne colour. This is also a great colour to use as a highlight under the brow bone and in the corner of the eye.


For blush this month I have been loving Mac Well Dressed. This is a pink colour with subtle shimmer that adds a lovely healthy glow to the cheeks. I have had this for a while but been really loving it this month and using it pretty much everyday!


Finally is a perfume and it is Diesel Loverdose! This does smell of liquorice and I wasn't sure if I would like it because of that but I actually really do! When I first ever sprayed it I loved it and it was on my wishlist from then on! Its a fairly sweet scent and the liquorice definitely stands out but it obviously has other scents in it as well. Liquorice and vanilla are the heart notes and star anise and mandarin are the top notes. They all smell delicious! This scent stays all day - I am constantly getting whiffs of it throughout my day which is great! I would recommend giving this a sniff when you next pass a fragrance counter.


Those are all my July favourites! If you would like a full review on any of the products I have mentioned, don't hesitate to ask me in the comments! 


What are your July favourites? Have you tried any of the products I have mentioned?

  12. Wow you have quite the dip in your Bare Study Paint Pot! I love to see such well-used products in monthly favorites, you can really tell someone has been enjoying them :).

    Paint Pots are great as well, have you tried any of the other colors? I'm not much for eyeshadow on a daily basis either, but I find Paint Pots are so easy to just sweep and go. My favorite one is Indian Wood, its a gorgeous gold-y bronze color that looks dark in the pot but its actually a nice wash of color when you want a more "defined" eye!

    You have such a lovely blog, I'm so glad I just found it. Hope you don't mind, but I'm going to go read all your old posts now haha ;)

    1. It is very well loved! No, Bare Study is my only one. Painterly has been on my wish list for a while :) Have you tried that? Indian Wood sounds like a beautiful colour - I've never heard of it! Wow thank you so much! Of course I don't mind, that's very lovely :) xx

    2. I almost bought Painterly when I first started out with makeup as I heard it was a good base, but I find Paint Pots don't last on my oily lids without a primer underneath so there wasn't much point in me getting it!

      Yeah Indian Wood is one of those underdog Paint Pots, so beautiful but never talked about! GroundWork sounds like one you would enjoy too, its ALMOST matte, a hint of shimmer in certain light, but a nice light brown (almost like Naked and Buck shadows from Urban Decay mixed together) with a bit of taupe-yness to it. Its my favorite to use with a bold lip or cheek, gives a nice defined look without screaming "I'm wearing eyeshadow"! xx

    3. I think I will have to swatch Indian Wood when I'm next at Mac! It sounds like the perfect colour :) xx
