July Favourites 2014

Hello August!

For some reason the thought of it being August already has just made me want Christmas, I know it’s a while away but I’m already excited, oh dear Samm. I swear now that I’m an adult I get more excited for these things then when I was a child! Onto the favourites..

I’ll start with skincare- I picked up The Body Shop Tea Tree Facial Wash a few weeks ago after seeing someone rave about it on Instagram. I’m really loving this face wash and I have noticed a difference in my skin. It has helped clear up my breakouts, and my skin feels really clean after I use it. I’ll post a review in the next few days going into more detail. I’ve also been loving the L’Oreal Skin Perfection Magic Touch Instant Blur which I use to prime my skin before applying foundation. This stuff is literally the best thing ever, I can’t wear my make up without applying this first. It makes my pores hidden under foundation, and after using it for a month I’ve noticed my pores have reduced in size. I really like the Skin Perfection range and I really want to pick up the serum as well.

Onto eyes.. I was on the look out for a new brow palette and decided to order the HD Brow Palette as it contains 6 different colours, so I can make my brows as light or dark as I want. It was also only £12.97 so it was such a bargain. I’ve also been wearing purple eyes a lot recently, so I’ve been loving using the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Endless Purple as a base before my shadows. With the purple eye I’ve been loving wearing the Ardell Demi Wispies which are my all time favourite pair of lashes. I’m giving away a multipack which you can read about and enter here.

For lips I’ve been loving the new Maybelline Baby Lips in Strike a Rose which I’ve found myself wearing a lot since I picked it up. I like that it adds a tint to the lips while keeping them moisturised, and it’s just so easy to wear in the summer when I want just a pop of colour. I’ve been into the Kylie Jenner lip trend lately and after reading around online I picked up MAC Brave lipstick and MAC Whirl lip liner which paired together look so nice on the lips, and do give that Kylie Jenner look, I’m loving this lip combo.

Last week I was in Next and I saw they sold a few W7  products, so I obviously had to pick some up as it’s a brand I’ve not tried before. The W7 Honolulu Bronzing Powder has become my favourite contour powder. This product deserves it’s own post which I’ll have up soon. Lastly I have to mention the Sigma F80, which has always been one of my must have foundation brushes, and this month I’ve been using it religiously. I’m addicted to this brush!

That’s what I’ve been loving throughout July, what products have you been loving?
