July Favourites

Another busy month has flown by already! The weather has been very hit and miss this month and has varied between sunshine, showers and overcast muggy days.

I’ve had something fun on every single weekend this month and I am absolutely exhausted!

It’s definitely been warm though and it’s made me so happy to be reaching for my summer beauty products.

Here’s what I’ve been loving this month –

Ghost Sweetheart Forever Perfume

A full review of this is coming up very soon but since I was sent this at the beginning of the month I have really been loving the scent!

Colourpop Pressed Eyeshadows

I picked these up in my recent haul here (where I also talked about shipping to the UK, if you’re interested) and I have these in the shades: Wait For It, Pep Talk and Time Out.

The performance of these eyeshadows is insane – I love how pigmented and long lasting they are. The peach shades make for the perfect summer eye look and I’ve been reaching for them so much.

Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme Mascara

I tried this for the first time this month and I am so impressed with the results. I’ve been reaching for this ever since I tried it to create voluminous lashes with a deep coat of colour. I love the big bristle brush it creates so much volume without clumping the lashes.

Essence 2 in 1 Eyeshadow and Liner Stick in Peach Perfect

I picked this up in Wilkos for around £2 and this has proved to be such a handy essential! I’ve been popping this in my bag and using it if I ever go out somewhere after work as it’s a super quick and easy eye makeup look.

Just smooth the creamy formula onto the lids and blend with the finger and you’re done! Effortless and pretty all in one stick.

Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Paint in Pinksplosion 

OMG how pretty is this colour? As soon as I saw this I knew I had to have it. I’ve been branching out into brighter makeup recently and this was a very bold choice for me but I embraced it and I’ve loved wearing it! It’s great for both day and night.

As you may already know, I love the formula of the Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Paints they’re not at all drying and the lasting power is so good.

    I still haven’t worn the Matte Me Up I bought! I’m trying a new liquid lipstick a day from my collection at the moment for the comparison post and I haven’t worn a makeup look that it’s gone with now.
    I used to love the colossal range from Maybelline, I haven’t used them in years though!
    That essence eyeshadow sounds like a great handbag product, looks like you could get away with it as a highlight as well!

    I love the look of Barry M’s matte lipsticks – I already have so many from other brands but I might add to my collection anyway!
