July Favourites

Tuesday, 5 August 2014
Another month gone by, another set of products and other loves I can claim to have been my favourites.  Here we go..


Nails - This month my manicure rocked Essie Style Hunter.  A reddish pink colour which is fun, summery and chic at the same time.  An opaque finish is obtained after 2/3 coats but its a lovely colour for any occasion.

Makeup - I have two pieces of makeup favs this month.  First up is my very recent purchase the L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara (*deep breath*)...that's a long name. Ever since getting this in my post I have not used any other mascara.  On everyday basis this has been my look...a bit of concealer and splash of Miss Manga on my lashes.  I achieve two looks with this: 1. lengthened lashes that give a bit more definition and make me look more awake and 2. a the 'twiggy lash' trend if I apply several coats of it.

Next makeup favourite is the MAXFACTOR Whipped Creme Foundation.  I've had this for a while now but at the start I sort of developed a love-hate relationship with it.  I don't know what it was.  Recently I have discovered it in my stash again and thought I'd give it a second chance and now I have a lovely relationship and we'll live happily ever after.  I always like in summer its a bit harder to find a light foundation that does not feel cakey at sweaty point and that has good coverage.  This has both.  Coverage is medium and be built easily and the feel of it is not sticky but very smooth and pleasant on the skin.  No clue what I was thinking before.

Skin Care - This month I have umphed up my skin care routine a little bit after a bit of a skin revolution.  A new product that I started using is the Vichy Normaderm Anti-age, Anti-Imperfection, Anti-Wrinkle Resurfacing care.  No I am not an anti-age freak..that was not the reason for this purchase.  It has ingredients like Vitamin C, glycolic acid and lipo-hydroxy acids that target imperfections and large pores.  I use this as a serum once a day, after cleansing...before my moisturiser...and it has done miracles.  My skin is a lot smoother and my breakouts and scars calmed down a lot.  Love it!

Not many favourites this month..but let's start compiling this month's list. Yeah...this month will be over in a blink of an eye.
