July 2014 favourites.

Hello lovelies,
I've not done a favourites post for a few months, I don't tend to have enough to have enough to talk about, but July has been an exception! My summer so far has been amazing, and I can actually day that July has not flashed before my eyes, but been slow and enjoyable. 

-MAC Fix+-

First up is my MAC Fix+. I'm sure I have featured this in a favorites post last summer but it has been a god send this month. I've been loving this spraying this on just after I finish my makeup to keep it looking light, but also on no makeup days just to stay cool! It smells so good and leaves it super soft.

-Bourjois Java rice powder-

I have to start with the packaging of this product, how pretty! I love that it is the same vintage design as the product has when it was released in 1879, 150 years ago if you can believe it! Inside it has a really handy bit of plastic that you twist so that the perfect amount of product is dispensed meaning it doesn't end up all over everything else. I like to use my real techniques contour brush and dip into the powder, tapping to remove the excess and then sweeping over the high points of my face. Although you know how much I love my MAC soft and gentle, this one is perfect for a more subtle highlight. As with most Bourjois products, this one is scented, it smells so good!

-L'oreal True match-

I'd been wanting to try this foundation ever since the blogger hype began, and I can honestly say that it deserves all of the praise it's had! I was matched to the shade CI `Rose Ivory` and it is perfect for my pale skin. It is a much higher coverage than I usually have but I adore it, it doesn't feel heavy or look cakey at all and  gives a lovely glowy look, which I'm sure is the main reason it is compare to the Giorgio Armani Luminous silk as a wonderful dupe.  So basically, go get yourself a bottle!

-Miss Sporty liquid concealer-

I was on the hunt for the collection lasting perfection concealer yet again, which of course they didn't have in the lightest shade (the annoyance was real) so picked up this old favorite of mine. I like to use this under the eyes and on blemishes and it works equally well covering both. It has quite a light finish so I don't find it looks cakey although I do like to really blend it it to avoid highlighting the areas I'm trying to conceal! This is such a bargain at only £2.99.

-YSL glossy stain Corail holdup`-

I've reviewed this in full here, so it's best just to read that to find out why I love it so! But in short, this is the perfect glossy, muted lip, coming from a girl who is loyal to a lippies and not a fan of lip-gloss. It is such a lovely luxury to have and a summer staple, plus it brings pack prom memories!

-Tk maxx makeup brush-

I bought this brush at the start of the month on a bit of whim after spotting t in Tk maxx (I know it was in branded packaging but I've no clue what is is!) I've been loving this with cream products; it contours like a dream with my Bourjois bronzing primer and is fab with my Sleek cream blush trio. I love Tk Maxx, I know some people aren't keen because it does have that jumble sale vibe, but if you look there are some real gems!

-Real techniques pointed foundation brush-

Another brush I've been loving this the Real Techniques pointed foundation brush. Now this is the one out of the core collection that I never really had a use for, but since I bought True match, they have become the perfect pair! I like to start from the center of my face dipping the brush into my foundation and then working it over, building but the coverage with extra layers if I feel I need it. I urge you to give this brush another go if you just have it sat redundant in you collection, it's also fab fro apply a primer if you don't wan to use your hands. 

-Eyeko skinny liner-

This has to be the bets magazine freebie I have ever received, thanks Glamour! I'm a daily winged liner wearer, and this one ticks all the boxes; easy to use, ultra black, long lasting and precise, full review on the way!

-Kleenex shine absorbing sheets-

When I saw these in the 99p store the other day I had to pop them in my basket. They are a total lifesaver if you find your face gets shiny though out the day. I simply pop one of these sheets out, blot it over my face and then lightly dust some powder over and I'm good to go again!

So that's what I've been loving lately! I've been having the best summer with lots still to look forward too, including meeting up with my blogger bestie Lily, so so excited!
