July Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites
It’s that time! Time to tell you about the products and bits I’ve been loving in the past month.
Alpha H Liquid Gold – I have been coveting this stuff for a long time. It’s a cult product that most beauty bloggers rave about and I was lucky enough to win it (along with lots of other Alpha H products) in a Twitter competition! I was a bit nervous about using it due to my rosacea but I am loving it! I’m going to do a full blog post on it soon as there’s too much to say here! You can buy it HERE.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum – this is my current favourite foundation, mixed together with the La Roche Posay* CC Rosaliac cream. I was sent the LRP CC cream by Escentual a few months ago and it was too dark for me but I loved its coverage. After the honeymoon I had a bit more colour to my face so the mixture of the two is perfect. The Bourjois feels light, covers all my redness and looks really natural. You can buy it HERE.
Sephora Formula X nail varnishes – When I was in Dubai, these were some of the only things I got in Sephora (don’t get me started!) I haven’t tried the third one yet, but these two are seriously stunning. The blue and black one is called ‘Turbulent’ and the multicoloured pastel glitter is ‘Demolition’. You can see the full Sephora X range HERE.
Crazy Colors ‘Lavender’ – As you may have seen, my hair is currently purple. I have been trying to resist the urge to cut all my hair off and the only way I’m doing that at the moment is by dying it silly colours. I actually love this purple shade but it fades so quickly which is a shame. If anyone knows any bright hair dye that lasts longer, let me know! Crazy Colors have loads of fun colours HERE.
Topshop lip crayon in ‘Wave Goodbye’ – I bought this in the John Lewis sale, I think it was about £3. It’s a lovely pretty pink nude colour and the finish is very creamy and moisturising. The full Toyshop lip products range is HERE.
L’Oreal Color Riche Mono eyeshadows – These are gorgeous little beasts. They have a range of mattes and shimmers and they are all glorious. I have been wearing these most days and cannot recommend them enough, I got ‘Breaking Nude’, ‘Cafe St Germain’ and ‘Little Beige Dress’. Have a look at the full shade range HERE.
Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliners – I am always on the hunt for a simple black eyeliner and this one is pretty much perfect: it’s the Waterproof Kohl Liner and it’s soft enough to not be scratchy, hard enough to give you something to work with and it stays put! I have very watery eyes and this does last until the end of the day. The other liner is a Shadow Stick in ‘Bad Bronze’. This is chubby eyeshadow pencil and I use it to line my eyes before smudging out.
A signed print from Niki Pilkington – Eeeeee!! I’ve wanted something from Niki for ages and I am so happy with it. I decided to treat myself as a ‘you got an amazing new job yay!’ present. Her stuff is so beautiful and you can find it HERE.
