July Favourites

Revlon Colorstay in '020 Front Row'
Glamour Magazine

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone's had a good weekend so far! I feel like I haven't done a beauty post for ages and something I'd like to have every month is a 'favourites' post - I love reading other bloggers posts on their monthly top beauty buys, so I thought I'd start off my first post with 'July favourites'. It's actually incredibly hard to pick out just a few top products but this month, these are without a doubt my favourite things right now!

I've really fallen in love with this gorgeous eye make-up shade from Maybelline. It's in cream form, which I find works a lot better on my skin than powder does, especially around the delicate eye area too because I have super sensitive eyes. The colour is gorgeous and just a small amount goes a really long way, it glides on and is long lasting - so my eye make up preference right now!

This is a simple but essential product for all year round I think, I absolutely hate having dry hands so I love being able to pop this 50ml cream in my handbag and top up when necessary! I always opt for Nivea when it comes to moisturising and this gives my hands some serious relief - the travel size is ideal too!

Nail varnish of the month (and possibly the year) is 'Allure' by Essie. Essie is a brand that has been the top of my list for AGES now and I literally love all their colours, but since buying 'Allure' I've probably used it more than any other nail varnish ever, I love the super pale pink colour and you only need two coats before you get a polished finish (there's nothing worse than having to pile on 4 coats with a pale shade before you can get a good coverage.)

I posted about the Revlon ColorStay lip sticks a few months ago and I'm still as hooked as ever. This is a gorgeous, pale pink summery colour which I'm loving at the moment, as with all the other shades, it glides on and lasts for ages without needing a re-application - plus I'm a huge fan of anything pale pink, I think it suits my colouring best!

I'm a huge magazine fan and always have been, but whilst there are so many out there that I love to read, I always faithfully come back to both Glamour and Cosmopolitan every month religiously! You still can't beat a quite hour with a magazine away from the computer and the television and this month's Glamour was an amazing read (as it always is).
