The Favourites... July 2013...

Wednesday, 31 July 2013

Back on track with favourites this month, there may or may not be a video, at this moment I can't tell if I will have time to film it! I'm being all prepared and typing this up a few days before the end of the month! There is one familiar face in my favourites again and that's the La Roche Posay Efficlar Duo* purely because it has been helping me keep a not so sweaty face on hot days and always giving me a nice base to put on my makeup in the mornings when I am a half asleep monster. The Maybelline Fit Me Foundation  was a true favourite in the last couple of weeks of July, specifically from when I had my fake tan done for Leanne's wedding. The colour is my tan colour so this limits when I can wear it so will be picking up a lighter shade for the winter months when they appear. It's lightweight but allows me to build up a level of coverage that I like and is dewy so that you look glowing not sweaty. 
On my eyes this month I have been loving a mascara that I honestly wished I had tried and hated. I'm talking about Benefit They're Real Mascara* which is £19.50 - say whut! But that's the only part of this mascara I'm unimpressed by. It gives me massive lashes, curled and that don't smudge. Perfect. However I still think the Rimmel mascara that's been in my other favourites is a strong contender. Another eye related product is the Mini Tweezerman Tweezers I bought mine from ASOS for £12.50 and I am so glad that I invested finally. They are perfectly sized and pack a punch when it comes to pulling out the finest hairs, a welcome upgrade to my cheap tweezers I was using before.
The Bourjois Paris Colour Boost Lip Crayon was thrown into my basket on a last minute boots trip before Leanne's Wedding, mainly because I'd seen hers and fell in love with the colour. The finish is kinda glossy which I like because the colour still packs a punch, I have the colour orange punch.
My final favourite is the Bare Minerals Bronzer in Warmth which I had as part of the Bare Minerals Starter Kit in Light . It's far too easy to put too much on with this product but a bit of practice, a steady hand and blending skills will leave you with a nicely bronzed face. Side note, I hate the brushes that come with the set, very scratchy and keep shedding. Has anyone else had this problem?

What have been your favourites this month? Apart from ice lollies!




  1. I'm desperate to own a pair of tweazerman tweezers!

  2. Have you washed your BM Brushes? They shouldn't be scratchy, and if they keep shedding contact customer services - they're all really nice and will sort it out in no time for you! Having said that I'm not a fan of the natural hair ones tbh. The new synthetic ones are far nicer but the range is limited atm. Rubbish.

  3. I really need to try the Benefit They're Real! Mascara but don't want to fork out the £19.50 for it! Will have to wait until I'm all out of mascaras... x

  4. I recently purchased the mascara and I'm in love with it! So amazing. Lovely list xx


  5. Oohh I wasn't too fond of 'they're real,' it made my eyelashes feel really crispy? And I couldn't help but pick it off! I binned it and kind of regretted it because loads of people say it gets better after a few weeks, gah!

    LOVE tweezerman though, wouldn't use anything else now! x
