July Favourites

Hey huns!
The month of July absolutely flew by (probably because I was away for three weeks of it)!
Last month, I didn't try out too many new products, but out of the ones I did, these are my favourites.

The first favourite is a hairspray. Hairspray is quite an alien thing for me to use, but I was going to curl my hair about two weeks ago (I didn't in the end up) and a friend of mine said I should try this one. As I have said, I was away so when my fringe became so long that I could barely see out of it, I had to think of something as there was one more formal event before we all returned home. With this, I managed to split my fringe to look presentable, and the hairspray kept it looking like this for the whole night without my fringe looking crispy! I also used it when I curled my hair last Saturday and it worked SO WELL with my curls also!

The next thing is a cream highlighter by Nyx. I absolutely love this! It gives such a natural pretty glow to my cheekbones, and also, there is no need for a brush!

This is also a product by Nyx, which is there Photogenic Concealer. I got this to cancel out the redness on my nose, and it does exactly that! I am so impressed as it keeps my Rudolph nose at bay all day.

This next favourite is by Real Techniques and is their retractable kabuki brush. I bought this solely to put on my bronzer, and I love it! It applies and blends my bronzer perfectly, is so soft and the fact that it is retractable makes it extremely handy for travelling.

Another Nyx product! This is their Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Cottage Cheese' (the name is icky, I know). I had intended on getting the one in 'Milk', but the pharmacy I was in - Bradley's Pharmacy in Blanchardstown,  if you are wondering - were all sold out of it! I decided to buy this instead and I am so glad I did.
 This eyeliner is soft, which makes it easy to apply to my water line. It also brightens up my eyes which was good as I was up every morning for the past three weeks at 7am!

Last Nyx product - I promise!!!
This is a Butter Gloss in the shade 'Peaches and Cream' and I am absolutely in love with this lip gloss! 
It has a doe foot application and the lip gloss itself applies creamily - it isn't sticky at all! The colour pay off is fantastic as the lip gloss is so opaque. I really want to try more of these Butter Glosses!

This next lip product is by MAC and it is their collaboration with Rihanna.
I have been on the hunt for a good red lipstick for a while now, and when I was in the MAC shop in Dublin, I swatched Ruby Woo but didn't like it as much as I thought I would. I then saw this and have been in love with it ever since! It is (in my opinion) the perfect red lipstick! It has a great colour opacity, it isn't drying and the packaging is amazing!

The second to last item is a powder by Bourjois and it is their Poudre de Riz de Java powder - I think.
I bought this powder as my other Bourjois powder shattered and crumbled and I needed a new one!
This powder smells amazing and is translucent so there is no room for looking orange. It's a very light powder and therefore there is also no room for caking.

The final item (phew!) is the Sleek Contour Kit. I haven't been using the highlighter as much, but what I have been using is the bronzer. It looks a bit dark in the pan, but when I blend it into my skin it contours perfectly!

So that is my very long favourites post for July! I hope you enjoyed. 
I'll see you in my next video or blogpost!

Hey Huns!
I do realise I have been really inactive on my blog, youtube and twitter lately.

 I went to a camp sort of thing for three weeks (best three weeks of my life holla) and wasn't able to blog or do anything because I was so busy. 

Hopefully now I'll get back into blogging and youtube mojo and I'll be right on track again. I'm going to minimise posting to about twice a week and posting to youtube about once a week because I have many things going on this month (and I thought I was going to have a boring summer).
