July Favourites


I can't believe July is over and it's just one month until the schools start back up and the countdown to Christmas begins! It feels like just a couple months ago I was stringing up the fairy lights and singing 'Fairytale of New York'! Not that I'm complaining, if I had my way Christmas would be monthly and even the shops would shut for the weekend. 

Anyway, I'm getting wildly off topic, it's July Favourites time...


Stila // Eyes are the Window Palette - Soul

Earlier this month I wrote about the products I love the most, you know, the ones you wouldn't be able to live the rest of your life without. Well, in the search to dig out those products, I found this. It didn't quite make the cut for my all time favourites because, well, actually now I think about it, I'm not sure why. I love this palette. It has a great selection of mattes and shimmers. It's small, compact and has a huge mirror so it's great for travelling. The shadow's are buttery and blend really nicely, I even brought it with me in my Bali makeup bag!

NYX // Liquid Suede - Sandstorm

I know, I know, I mentioned this in last months favrouites too but bearing in mind how much I've coveted NYX the past couple of months, a lip gloss of some sort had to make the cut. And honestly, everything I mentioned last month, is still as honest and true now. It's so easy to apply, lasts ages and great to just throw in your bag and go. It's much more practical than a lipstick and as much as I love MAC's Velvet Teddy, this one is just so much easier.

Barry M // Dazzle Dust - Venus

For me, there's something about products that turn around a whole look that make me love them more. There are some people who (I admire an awful lot) love the challenge of creating incredible pro MUA looks. For me, I'm just lazy, don't have the patience, slight of hand or talent for that. However, I've found the Dazzle Dusts from Barry M do a great job of turning a dull, flat smokey eye into something that you would have thought a pro would have created. And I love that!

MAC // Whirl - Lip Pencil

I picked this up on a whim in Duty Free on the way to Thailand last month and it's possibly the most used lip liner I own. They tend to normally get used a couple times and then thrown in the makeup drawer and forgotten abuot. But this one is a staple neutral for any collection. It's got a creamy texture that is easy to apply but also super easy to remove when it goes a little wrong. Which with me, it does often!

Let me know what products you've been loving this month, I'm heading to Sephora in a couple days so I'd love to pick up a few of your recommendations if you have any!

Love always,
Melissa

    1. Get it, when you have some spare cash, get it! It's an all time favourite! Definitely better than my MAC neutrals palette which was 10x the price!

  2. I keep hearing about the NYX Liquid suedes, and they sound lovely! I'll have to look out for them, as NYX is opening a shop in my local mall next month :)
