July favourites

Well hello to you my dear reader chums!

We're in August already, I can't believe it! Where did July go?! July has been such a good month with the summer holidays kicking off where I've spent a lot of time down the beach with friends. The sun has been shining in the UK and I've been loving it, still failed to get a proper tan though.

If you're looking for a shimmery eye shadow, the best waterproof mascara or cleanser, here are my July favourites.

July favourites
MUA shimmery palette

Fashionista eye shadow palette by MUA

 If you've been following my blog you'd probably know I received this in my package from MUA that I won. I love this palette, the colours are really shimmery and pigmented. This month I'd say I've been using the creamy colour called double-take the most as I find it a lovely colour in the crease for an ultra-creamy look, with a champagne colour on the lid. 

The two bottom colours I find are good for a bronzy eye look, I didn't even realise that the one on the right was a bronzer! I should read the back more. The nude colour is perfect for a base. I'm really impressed with this palette because I'm a big fan of shimmery neutral eye shadows and these definitely fit the bill with them being extremely pigmented and pretty as well!

Vitamin E Body Shop cleanser and toner

Before getting these I used to just use make-up wipes to take off my make-up and not really do much else if I'm honest. However, now I find using this cleanser and toner for that purpose is much easier and leaves the skin feeling refreshed. The cleanser has a lovely creamy texture that when applied to the skin feels gentle and easily removes all my make-up! The toner is just as amazing with removing the excess make-up with only a small amount needed. After using these products I can honestly say my skin feels so soft and revitalised. The cleanser also has a nice smell, a little bonus!

Vitamin E Body Shop Moisturiser

The next product also came in the set from the Body Shop, it's the moisturiser from the same range. I fell in love with this moisturiser as soon as I first applied it! The consistency is extremely soft/light and only a small amount is needed when applied to the face to feel like it's doing the job. It has the loveliest smell and leaves the face instantly refreshed and awakened, would definitely recommend it!

White Coal Eyeliner from MUA

White Coal Eyeliner from MUA

 I've started to get into wearing white eyeliner on the waterline instead of black this month because I find it brightens up the eyes even more and is so much less harsh especially in the summertime. For a coal liner I think it stays on for a reasonable amount of time, but not all day, meaning it would probably need to be applied again later in the day. However, for a pound, it's a great bargain!

Collection's nail polish in 'fruit salad'

For me, the colour coral is a really summery colour and I absolutely love it. The nail polish itself doesn't stay on for that long and chips after a couple of days, however. I'm currently wearing it on my toes and it just enforces the idea of summer for me! I think a bold colour is needed in the summer to finish off an outfit and this totally fits that idea!

Falsies mascara in waterproof by Maybelline

I was extremely excited when I finally got my hands on this because I've heard so many amazing reviews and it's Tanya Burr's favourite mascara. It honestly does live up to its name because it gives the lashes a false look effect by lengthening and volumising them! The waterproof aspect is just a bonus because as I'm going to be spending most of the summer down the beach a waterproof mascara is a necessity. It doesn't smudge easily and stays on all day.

  7. The body shop cleanse and toner sound really good! I usually use garnier makeup remover which I find really good but it makes my skin oily :/
