July favourites 2014 ❤

Well hello to you my reader chums! As were nearing the end of July, it's time for a favourites post. I usually do these at the beginning of the next month if that makes sense, yet today I was in the favourites mood! Here's everything I've been loving this month:





The first thing I'm going to talk about is the very hyped up Maybelline colour tattoo in 'On and on bronze'. I've literally been wanting this for so long now and if you saw my most recent haul post, you'll know I picked it up at the end of last month. Since then I've worn it everyday without fail either on its own or with eyeshadow on top. The colour tattoo alone gives the most beautiful bronze colour and is definitely worth the hype, I love it! It's an amazing base as it lasts ages and help adds more of a bronze to the eye under eyeshadow or gives a lovely bronze glow when just applied on its own. It's also perfect for this time of year because you can just whack it on, blend it out and voila your done! In the summer I like simple quick makeup and this does the trick! 

The next product is a lip balm which I received in a set at Christmas. I love to apply this just before bed as it really helps moisturise my lips and has a lovely fruity smell which is always a bonus! The packaging is adorable too which I love!

The next product is one of Tanya Burr's lipgloss's in 'Chic'. I also bought this recently and it pairs perfectly with the Maybelline colour tattoo that I previously mentioned. This lipgloss gives the perfect nude colour and if your looking for a new nude lip product I'd definitely recommend it! The gloss lasts for a couple of hours and has the most beautiful smell of strawberry laces. I just love Tanya's range, the products are of such high quality and have the cutest packaging! 

The next product is from the new BarryM 'loudmouth' range. I was lucky enough to win the whole range and have tested out a few of them lately. To me, I always think of summer as the time to wear a bright lip and I've been loving this colour especially this month. It's a beautiful coral pink shade and looks lovely paired with a neutral eye. These lip stains are such a lovely product when applied to the lips, they easily glide on and stain the lips making them last longer. The consistency is of a lipgloss but they look like a lipstick when applied. I also love the names they have chosen for each lip stain, it gives a uniqueness to them! Looking forward to wearing more of the other shades! 

The last product is the sleek face form kit. I've been loving the bronzer and highlighter especially in this face palette this month. The bronzer is matte making it an amazing product to contour with as well as give that overall bronze effect when dusted all over the face. The highlighter gives such a pretty cream sheen when applied on the top of the cheekbones/ browbone and looks great in this weather as it stands out due to the sun!
This month marked the angelversary of Talia Joy Castellano who passed away last year on 16th July at 11.22. To keep her legacy alive, I wore a #mintmani for #taliasmintmani as her last Instagram post was of her mint nails. Talia will always be my inspiration, she's helped me through so much with her slogan 'Just keep swimming' and all her videos which brightened up my day! Everyday she's always in my thoughts and I miss her dearly. Even though I never knew her she made a huge impact on my life and continues to inspire me daily. Rest in paradise Talia, forever in my heart ❤
The shade I wore for this was BarryM in mint green and I love the colour, however it takes a few coats to be opaque.


Song favourites: 

There's a few songs this month that have constantly been on repeat, the first one being 'Somebody to you' by the Vamps ft Demi Lovato as its such a feel good summer tune. Another couple are 'Amnesia' by 5SOS and 'Rather be' by Clean Bandit, I just love them! 'Give me love' by Ed Sheeran has been another favourite. This song is quite old but I've got listening to it lately and have fell in love with it. When I'm out on my own in public I sometimes get quite panicky, however this song has been rather calming for me for some reason. Also, Ed Sheeran's 'All in our stars' I absolutely love this song for the meaning because its based on The fault in our stars and has such a beautiful tone. It has really helped keep me calm too when feeling panicky because of the delicacy of the lyrics and tone.

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed! ❤
