Monthly Beauty Favourites: July


And can you believe it's August already? The only thing making me 100% sure that it's August and not still March is the fact that I'm consuming a Calippo daily and having to take about 5 body showers a day. 
In July we saw the lockdown measures be lifted mildly and with this I think I actually attempted to wear makeup about once/twice a week, instead of...well, never. So hence why this is probably my first beauty favourites in a long time. 

The Too Faced Born This Way The Natural Palette - I think was probably my only makeup purchase I made during lockdown I did go big on skincare purchases though. I did a full review on the palette here and honestly it's one of my all time favourite purchases in beauty for a long time.  I got it for such a good bargain as well.  Too Faced eyeshadows are second to none. They are so easy to blend and this palette is so wearable. 
Marc Jacobs Sheer Gel Lipstick 'Eat Cake' - A lipstick I've had in my collection for a long time, but I tend to really only bring it out in the Summer due to the colour which is quite a nice rosey yet vibrant pink. Although the name suggests it's a 'Sheer' lipstick, I find that this packs quite a pigment regardless. It's super comfortable to wear and luxurious too. Plus the packaging is gorgeous, it comes in a fancy magnetic case so the top satifyingly clicks into place. 

L'Oreal Plump & Set Brow Artist - I actually used this a while back but found it was out of stock when I went to purchase it and got an E.L.F one instead. When I went back, although I did like the ELF one, I thought I'd try the L'Oreal one again, as I really loved how fluffy it makes my brows. Apparently a highstreet dupe to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel, I find this helps my brows stay fluffy and in place throughout the day. My one qualm, and I don't know if it's just the case with this one, is I can get quite a bit of product on it so it requires a light hand! 

Clinique Pop Splash Lipgloss 'Adore U' - I absolutely love this lip gloss, not only is it super mini and adorable, but it's a beautiful shade as well. It's that perfect everyday lip topper, or during the Summer I also love wearing it by itself. It's another rosey shade and I don't find it overly sticky either. 

L'Oreal Life's a Peach Blush 'Peach' - Nothing screams Summer more than anything peach, and this peach blusher is one of my all time favourites. It reminds me of the Too Faced peach collection, where not only is it peach in colour, but also in smell too, which. I love. It's a matte with a satin finish which I much prefer during the Summer time as it does add that extra glow!   

Let me know if you've had any beauty favourites last month or if you're still in the no-makeup lockdown phase!

  8. That sheer lippie looks so pretty!! It sounds perfect for summertime, or all around light, natural makeup looks which are my fav. I've become a bit obsessed with blush for the last couple of years, and now I want to go pick up that L'oreal one--a satin finish?! Sounds perrrrfect xx

  9. I'm SO with you on the Too Faced Natural Nudes palette - I started a new job during lockdown and treated myself to it as a little 'well done you' present. I haven't reached for another palette since. The pigment, the shade range, everything about it is insane! Don't think I will purchasing any others for a while!

  10. The MJ lipstick looks so satisfying. I can't believe I've never tried any of their lip products! Have you tried the other formula too (the one in black packaging)? If so which one do you prefer?
    (Not that I need a new lipstick you know... LOL)

  18. I love the look of that Too Faced eyeshadow palette! If it wasn't for the fact that I own so many nude eyeshadow palettes already, I'd definitely get this one. I've not heard a bad thing about it already and the layout of the palette is simply stunning. Loved reading your beauty faves post!
