July Favourites

Mood: Cheery
Listening to: Icona Pop- I don't care

Hello Bloggers!

I've been thinking about doing a favourites post for a long time, and since I've got my new blog I've grabbed the opportunity to do so and I'm going to show you a few products I've really enjoyed using throughout the month of July. 

I've seen many people do this through their blogs or YouTube channel, so I thought it would be a fun idea to do. I'll start by naming the product and doing a small review on it and I've also added pictures so you can see the items. I've not been paid to review any of these products and all items were purchased by myself from my own money or were received as a gift by family or friends.

1.  Sleek i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Storm 

I bought this product at the start of July and it's honestly one of the best eyeshadow palettes I have ever used. At first glance the actual palette was smaller than what I expected but it still looked like an attractive product and was similar in feel to the MAC palettes, but when I looked inside I wasn't disappointed, I expected less shadow and that wasn't the case. The price of the palette was a very reasonable £7.99 (not including p+p if purchasing online) and there are twelve colours all together. Nine of the twelve eyeshadows are shimmery and very pigmented and the other three are matte. A little goes a long way with this product and you don't have to use a lot to get a really vibrant look. My favourite colour from this palette is the shimmery rose gold colour (Bottom-left picture: It's the one on top right) it's really natural and I always get compliments when I wear it. I can't recommend this product enough.

2. Boots Extracts Fairtrade Cocoa Butter Body Butter

I received this body butter as a gift a little while back and for some reason I've only started to use it recently. This product came in a set with the matching body wash and that is equally as good. When you first open the delightful little pot there is an instant smell of cocoa butter and it smells good enough to eat but I wouldn't recommend you do that. The butter itself is very thick and luxurious but not at all greasy and sinks into your skin very quickly unlike other cocoa butters I've tried. I find it's best to use after you showered and towel dried, it really works into your skin making it soft to the touch. Another reason I like this product is the fact it uses fairtrade certified ingredients, so you don't feel guilty buying it. You can buy this product in a set or buy it individually so it's perfect as gift or a little treat for yourself.

3. Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 200 Soft Beige

Last month the UK had an amazing heatwave which is practically unheard of here but naturally I caught a wonderful tan over these weeks and my natural milky pale skin was lovely and sun-kissed. Which could only mean I needed one foundation. I usually use MAC studio sculpt foundation but I didn't want to splurge on a foundation to cover a tan that wouldn't last that long. I decided I would buy an inexpensive but highly recommended foundation so I did a little research online and saw many people advising to buy this foundation. As luck would have it during my grocery shop in Tesco I noticed they stocked this foundation and it was on offer at £5.99! Bargain. I chose the foundation in soft beige and it's and you can build it up to medium coverage. The actual foundation is very thick which not many people like but I personally I do. It has a lovely smell to it too and it applies to your face easily. It gives you a fresh, dewy finish and makes you look radiant. I would purchase this again.

4. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 001 Honey/Douce 

Last but not least of my July favourites is the Revlon Just Bitten lip stain. This product is a really good dupe of the Clinique chubby sticks. They're like a balmy lip crayon and they apply really easily although I recommend you apply it using a mirror just in case. The packaging looks good and it doesn't look cheap, which I like a lot. I don't really like felt lip stains so I was a bit apprehensive to trying these but I'm so glad I did because the colour lasts for hours and I only have to reapply after eating and drinking but even then it's still much better than a lot of other stains. They leave a light minty taste when applied which I adore and they don't dry out your lips like the felts do because it's a balm. I only have this in one colour but I am hoping to try out a few more colours in the near future!

So there are my July favourites! I hope you've enjoyed this type of post as I've really enjoyed doing it. If you have any other questions about the products I've mentioned don't be afraid to ask me anything. Do you have any favourite products that you've used this month? Let me know!
