July Favourites

This is my very first "certain-month-favourites" post - I'm not quite sure how good I'll be at keeping these up but we'll just have to wait and see...

So here's a couple of my most reached for products throughout July:

Loreal Voluminous Mascara
Mascara is one of those beauty products that I tend to use up before moving onto another one. Last time I used this one was ages ago but I have gone back to using it as it doesn't disappoint. Voluminous has been my daily companion for over the last two months and it's absolutely brilliant at giving maximum definition to the lashes. Although you could get away with only one coat, I'd say opt for two and if you're greedy like me then you can even squeeze in a third and a fourth for maximum need for falsies with this one.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Nude Lustre
I LOVE these glosses from Revlon!!! My make-up throughout July has been pretty low maintenance and this nude shade is just perfect for very quick looks as it suits all make-up looks and outfits. It has good staying power, hydrates the lips and makes them look super glossy...and lets not forget that it also contains an SPF 15.

E.L.F Studio Blush in Peachy Keen
Also a daily companion of mine - a very soft apricot/peach shade, perfect at providing a very subtle wash of colour for a natural day time make-up look.

LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter
I've been using this on my hands, nails, cuticles, feet, knees and elbows. Lemony Flutter has a very thick consistency so it's great at moisturising dry/rough areas. It smells very citrusy and should best be used at night time prior to going to bed as you'll not want to touch anything once this has been rubbed into your hands. This is surely going to be a favourite for many months to come.

Palmer's Olive Butter Formula Natural Bronze for the Face
I love Palmer's range of products as they're very hydrating and great quality. Natural Bronze for the face is a gradual tanning moisturiser with an SPF of 15 and is suitable for all skin types. It's made with certified organic extra virgin olive oil, white tea extract and honey. With daily use, it builds and maintains a healthy looking sun-kissed glow. Works great as a daily moisturiser due to the SPF and acts as a good base for make-up. I also like to use it at night time as it makes my skin look really radiant in the morning.

Did you discover any great products throughout July?
