July Favourites/Summer Essentials


1. Barry M Gelly in Blueberry

I’ve got to admit I’ve heard a lot of good reviews on the Barry M Gelly nail varnish range, but I always thought “It’s only a nail varnish!” But I finally decided to give it a try, and all I can say is that it’s possibly one of the best nail varnishes out there! Perfect colours for Summer and it only takes 2 quick coats to perfect! However the nail varnish is quite chip resistant I would recommend a top coat just to be safe! 

2. Garnier Oil Free Skin Perfecter BB Cream- Light 

After almost having a breakdown this Summer due to a sudden outburst of horrible oily skin, I decided to give Garner Oil Free BB Cream a try. I noticed results on the first day of using this product. My oily skin was reduced immensly and my skin was practically flawless due to the cream being a concealer AND a foundation! If you’re having any troubles with oily skin and finding it difficult to find a regular foundation that works with your skin, I would highly recommend this product without a doubt!

3. Real Techniques Stippling Brush

I genuinely regret not buying this brush sooner! It’s just stunning. It lightly buffs the foundation or concealer onto the skin flawlessly! I recommend this product to anyone with any foundation or makeup brand, no matter what face product you’re using this brush guarantees you a flawless face! 

4) Kate Moss Lipstick – 107

If you’re a lover of red lipsticks, this one is perfect! It’s creamy and long lasting, and not too shiny either! It’s excellent for the price and I would opt for it over any other lipstick. However I would reccomend a lip liner to keep the lipstick neat! 

5) Mac Lip Liner in Cherry 

I’ve been using this Lip Liner with the Kate Moss lipstick and they work perfectly together! It just shows how a drug store lipstick can work well with such a high regarded makeup brand. If you’re considering buying both a Mac lipstick and liner, I’d buy the liner but save money by buying a Kate Moss lipstick. 

6) Mac Mineral Skin Finish in Medium Plus 

This product last forever! I’ve had the current one I’m using since December and I’m still using it now. I apply this after applying foundation and it just sets the foundation nicely and makes your face look more awake and does what it says on the tin- Finishes off your skin in such a beautiful way!

7) SkinTruth Face Cleanser and Moisturizer 

I’ve been using these two products after having terrible skin breakouts this Summer due to the hot clammy weather. It took about a week for me to realise any difference in my skin but since then I’ve noticed a decline in the amount of spots, which is amazing! As I have oily skin I’ve only been applying the moisturizer in the dry areas of my skin and just applying a tiny dab onto the areas that are usually oily. 

8) Sleek Contour and Blush pallet in Light

This is the first ever Sleek product that I’ve tried- as well as the first contouring product I’ve tried- But I’m highly impressed by it. Because my cheeks are a little bit chubby and my cheek bones are only really visible when I smile this product has helped to shape my face and add more definition to my cheek bones- without going too over the top as you sometimes see when people ‘try’ to contour 

9) Rimmel Retro Scandal Eyes 

I was instantly drawn to this product  by the twiggy themed poster beside the product. The product claims to add a dramatic, clump free lash, and I’d agree that it lives up to it’s promise. I’d say the formula is very similar to the Maybeline Falsies Mascara- However not as good but pretty good for the £4.99 price! 

10) Body Shop Tea Tree Toner/Deep Cleaner 

The first time I used this product I was surprised at just how dirty and clogged my skin actually was, I use this about 4 times a week and it has cleaned my skin up drastically! I strongly recommend this product a long side the rest of The Body Shop’s Tea Tree range as they’re amazing and work with any skin type amazingly!
