July Favourites.

Hey guys!

Better late than never right? So here's my favourites for the month of July! I'm not going to go into the whole "where has the year gone" stuff, how many times have you heard that in the past week?!

Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream.
I haven't go any of the other flavours or scents in this range but I really love this one. It goes onto the lip really smoothly and leaves them looking moisturised and plump. This is perfect for when you don't want to wear lip gloss as it gives a non sticky shiny look to you lips and it's perfect for when your lips aren't feeling their best. I usually use this when I've just got out of the shower. I exfoliate my lips with my Lush Lip Scrub and then go over with this and it just leaves my lips feeling AMAZING.

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer
No matter what people say I'm just not a huge fan of the Collection Lasting Perfect Concealer. I do like it but I woudn't say it's the be all and end all of concealers as I find it doesn't work well under the eyes, it creases and wears off pretty quickly. Over blemishes it hides redness but I find this wears off quickly too. This is where Soap & Glory come in. This concealer comes with powder as well the set the whole thing and lock it in place as well as two different colour concealers for under eye and blemishes. This concealer doesn't crease and lasts really well and I've been loving it this month!

2True Matte Bronzer
I've been using this bronzers as a contour as it's matte and doesn't make me look like I'm dirty or streaky. I love that this powder is so pigmented and really blendable as a small amount goes a long long way. I also like to use this as a warm toned eye shadow as it doesn't have any shimmer so it doesn't look too obviously like a bronzer which is good as it's always nice to be able to get the most out of a product which you definitely can with this one.

MUA Pearl Eyeshadow Shade 2
I bought this eyeshadow as a cheaper alternative to a highlighter. however I recently bought the soap & glory Glow All Out Highlighter so this product sort of took a back seat to that until I brought it out for it's primary function and used it as a tear duct highlighter and it's very very good, it gives off just the right amount of shine, being a pearl eyeshadow, and it's really brings out the colour in yours eyes and for £1 you really can't go wrong!

MUA Blush in Lolly
I was looking for a peachy coral coloured brush and thought it would be best for me and my purse to check the offerings MUA had before going  for something more expensive as MUA are pretty good with their prices and quailty. I found this blush and I think with a tan it looks amazing! I don't really have a tan but if you have fair skin, it looks really night against a sharp/harsh contour and I've really really been liking the look. For the price I am amazed with the staying power and the quality, MUA can do no wrong!

MUa Undress Me Too Eyeshadow Palette
I bought this a while ago but I don't know if I've ever mentioned it in a favourites. I use this palette, along with the Undressed palette, every single day without fail, I like to have something on my eye lids to keep my eyeliner in place and these palettes are really good for creating a simple everyday neutral eye or even a night time smokey eye, they're so good and so inexpensive I don't know how anyone could say no. They are supposed to be good dupes for the NAKED palettes by Urban Decay but since I have neither NAKED 1 or 2 I can't comment!
Maybelline Eyebrow Pencil
I bought this pencil simply for the spoolie on the opposite end but much to my surprise the crayon part is actually really good! It's more of a wax than a pencil but it also gives a bit of colour which I really like. I use this when my brows are gettin unruly and it really sticks the down without them looking greasy so for the price (£2.99) it was a pretty good find!

Eyeko Skinny Mini Eyeliner Pen in Black
This was a freebie in magazine and it's right up my street. A jet black eyeliner pen is exactly what I like to use to put my eyeliner on and when i saw this in Marie Claire I was super excited. This pen is really easy to use and really good for drawing a variety of line thicknesses on the eye lid. For £4 instead of £8 (Eyeko's RRP) this is a steal!

Non Beauty Related Favourites.
Song - One Direction - Best Song Ever, This one was EASY.
Food - Strawberries & Bananas, I'm having a healthy venture at the moment and I'm loving eating these.
TV Show - Geordie Shore, love this TV show my favourite at the minute. Only for the comedy of them all!

I hope you enjoyed my favourites this month! What were yours?
