The months seem to be flying by this year, and here we are at the end of July already.
In this month’s favourites I have included a couple of things that I have only purchased during the past couple of weeks, so they are still being tried and tested.
L’OREAL SUBLIME BRONZE SELF TANNING ELIXIR
I discovered this at the beginning of the summer. Previously, I have used Dove gradual tan, but as this was a new product, I thought that I would give it a go. It gives a really beautiful natural tan that lasts for a long time. It can be used on the face as well as the body. An added benefit is that it does not have that fake tan smell.
CIATE OLIVIA PALERMO LIPSTICK IN PRALINE
Not a lot to say about this lipstick – the perfect nude. Great colour. Great texture. Long lasting. This has been my go to lip colour of the summer.
NYX STAY MATTE BUT NOT FLAT LIQUID FOUNDATION IN SOFT BEIGE
A great foundation that does what it says. It is not at all drying like some matte foundations can be, but leaves a great finish and the colour suits my skin extremely well. Stays on well and doesn’t feel like you are wearing anything that is too heavy.
BOURJOIS PUSH UP VOLUME GLAMOUR BLACK MASCARA
Quite a brilliant uplifting and volumising mascara. Makes lashes look long and thick and its easy to apply with no clumping.
UMBER GIANNINI FRIZZI MIRACLE WORKER WITH ARGAN OIL
I have hair that tends to frizz, especially if the weather is humid or if you get caught in the rain. This however, is a great way to tame the frizz. I apply to towel dried hair, using two pumps of the oil, massage it in and then style my hair as normal. It leaves the hair silky smooth and frizz free. Really loving this.
FOREVER ALPHA E FACTOR SKIN REPLENISHER
First time using any products from Forever. This is meant to balance the skin, reduce dryness and create radiance. I have only been using it for a week, but I do like how it makes my skin feel, so I am really liking it so far. Also, it can be used after shaving if you want to treat the man in your life.
DIOR LIP GLOW BALM
This is a great product for the summer months. A lip balm that reacts to the chemistry in your lips and brings out their natural colour. It can be used on its own or with lipstick or Dior’s lip maximiser (which I also love, by the way).
So, these are my July favourites, and I could have added quite a few more. What are you loving this summer? I would love to know.
I hope you all have a great week and the sun keeps shining on you, wherever you are.
