Hello, my Loves!
I have quite a few favourites for the month of July, with the majority of them being quite current purchases, mainly being from the drugstore. I hope you enjoy.
After many years of using the Garnier Micellar Water, this has finally taken over as my favourite makeup remover. The smallest amount goes a long way, and in one sweep of a cotton pad, my eye makeup is removed easily and efficiently, without looking like a panda! I also adore how soothed my skin feels after removing my full face of makeup, without feeling greasy or clogged up with the product. I will also be trying out the Bi Phase Micellar Water, which even claims to remove waterproof makeup.
When it comes to pampering products, I will always purchase Champneys products, particularly their ‘Citrus Blush’ scent as it is so uplifting and calming. I have tried the majority of the range, and this body lotion will always remain one of my favourites. For someone who applies fake tan on a weekly basis, having a light yet hydrating body moisturiser is essential, and this is most certainly one of the lotions on the market!
Although I adored my Original Beauty Blender last year, I really have fallen in love with this sponge, and I don’t think I will ever apply my base products with a brush again. I can quickly apply my base whilst still having a flawless coverage and finish. It is also perfect for travel, as I apply both my foundation, bb cream, colour correctors and concealer with just one sponge.
Onto my first ever colour correcting product, and my favourite TK Maxx Purchase, to which I found this palette for £7.99 instead of £27.99! Although I have barely used the normal concealer shades, I have been using the orange shade to brighten my under eyes and the green to correct the redness around my nose. Although the shades are extremely pigmented and look a little scary at first, when using the sponge they blend like a dream and do not affect the application of my other base products. Even though it may be a little pricey for some of you, it really is worth the investment.
I blend this onto the top of my colour correcting concealers, in which when paired together they create the perfect base for foundation. I also love how this has the same effect the Lumi Primer, which allows me to have an amazing luminous base even before highlighter! You can also wear this alone, and then apply concealer to the areas where you need that extra bit of coverage.
For everyday wear, I prefer highlights that give me a subtle glowing sheen and ever glow lights does exactly that! It is finely milled, which stops it from looking chalk even when applied with a heavy hand. This is a beautiful creamy gold shade, that can be worn with any kind of look. Makeup Revolution has some of the best highlighters on the market, and I would highly suggest that you pick some up!
I recently reviewed and hauled some 3INA products, which you can read here. I continued to use this beautiful copper shadow, which I apply with a fluffy brush during the day, for a sweep of colour across the lid, Whilst if I want a more intense eye look, I use a damp flat brush to pack the shadow onto the lid, and it looks quite simply beautiful.
I’d love to know some of your current favourites, so leave them in the comments below!
