Favourites : July 2012

Wednesday, 1 August 2012


I actually can't believe I am doing my July Favourites post! Seems like only a couple of days ago I typed up my ones for June. How fast does this year want to go!? God it makes me think how much I need to organise for my wedding. Someone kick me up the bum will they and tell me to get organised!

Oh I love this palette. I go through phases of using this palette. Considering I wanted it for absolutely ages I dont know why I dont use it more often. However saying that, it was my go to palette during the whole of July. For work I would use Napal all over the eyelid. Then feeling a bit adventurous at the weekend I introduced the other darker colours for a soft smokey eye.I did drop it the other evening and smash the darkest shade. Fortunately it wasnt too much product that smashed so I still have a full-ish pan of eyeshadow left!

Stila convertable color in Petunia - Review here.
Again another product I go through phases with. Well, cream or powder blushers. This month I favoured a cream blush! I really love this product! If you want to know more about it then click the link above. I would be tempted to try out some of the other shades avaliable to be honest!

I got this when the No7 £5 off vouchers were knocking around. A lot of people have compared it to the Clarins one, but I havent used that so I dont know if its a good dupe or not if I am honest. This doesnt really have much of a colour payoff, but I do like to use it just to give a slight glossy look to my lips. Perfect for the days when I dont put that much effort into my makeup! - Yes I do do that sometimes!

17 Mirror Shine Lipstick - Belle.
Beehive was my favourite lipstick from this range for a loooong time. In fact it is the only lipstick I ever completely finished! Now that is saying something. However Belle is the shade I have been going for this month. It just gives me that little bit extra hint of colour without straying too far from my lips natural shade. I love the formulation of these lippies, they are just a dream to apply and look so glossy on your lips!

Caudalie SOS Thirst Quenching Moisture Serum.
I love this stuff! As mentioned in my Project Samples update #2 post, i had a sample of this from a glossybox and then won a full sized bottle too. I love this serum so much and my purse wont be happy but I think its a product I will continue to purchase. It really cleared up the dry patches I suffered with for ages around my nose. God I love it! I havent heard a bad thing said about this serum yet!

Do you have any of these products, what do you think of them?
If you have done a favourites of the month post ro video, please link it in the comments so I can see.

Much Love
