July Favourites

Hello everyone! I've decided to do my July favorites as throughout the month I have been liking a lot of new things. All the products/things I mention I've been loving constantly throughout the whole month or part of the month, enjoy!

Beauty


My first 2 favourites are something I'm sure you'll all be aware of, it's 2 of the Revlon lip butters in the colours 005-Sugar Frosting and 027-Juicy Papaya. I love these because they're so pigmented yet moisturizing as they act more as a lip balm than lipstick. I love putting the nudey pink colour over lipstick just for a subtle, glossy effect and the coral colour is perfect for summer.
 My next item I'm sure you'll all be aware of yet again, as its the Bourjois Color Boost which are basically stick form lipsticks (chubby sticks). This is in the colour 01-Red Sunrise and I love it so much! The colour pay off is amazing as its so pigmented and it stays on for hours as its waterproof.


My next item is something which I've only recently re-discovered about 2 weeks ago because I've never really bothered with eye shadow since I always seem to mess it up. However, I've been trying more things out and this has been such a help! I put it in the crease and half of the eye lid, blend and then work some more colours around it. It's such a nice base and it stays on all day.


Another eyeshadow product I've been loving is this MUA single shadow in Shade 11. The main reason I love this is the price (£1) and it's such a pretty colour! It's shimmery but can still be worn for a everyday look as its not too full on.


This product has been my favourite thing ever this month! Its the Garnier BB Cream for combination to oily skin and it's been such a life saver. For about 2-3 months now I haven't worn foundation as I realised how bad it was for my skin and it just felt so heavy on my face. I found this product to be very light on my skin yet the coverage was medium which is fine for me. Its the only product I've ever found that lasts all day and doesn't make the colour of my face change throughout the day.

Since it's summer, I've been painting my nails constantly and generally using Barry M colours. These are two of the Gelly high shine ones which I adore! They look opaque with one coat and dry so quickly. I think these two colours are perfect for summer and I can't wait to use them on holiday.


Fashion

As I said before, the sun has been out more than usual in England which has meant I've been wearing sunglasses more often. These are my new favourite pair as I love the rounded effect of them. These are from Tk Maxx but originially a brand called ESPIRT. I would highly recommend Tk Maxx for sunglasses as this brand retails at £50-£100 and I paid £7 for them!  
 This month I seem to have been drawn towards buying and wearing striped clothing. I have no idea why but suddenly I've developed an obsession with stripes! I think the trend is very chic as b&w stripes tie in with the monochrome trend which I've also been loving. Stripes are just an alternative to wearing a plain t-shirt as they make outfits more interesting.
