July Favourites




Another month, another monthly favourites! Here are the beauty products I have been obssessed with during the month of July but I’ve also thrown 2 non-beauty bits along the way. Enjoy and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter here, Instagram here and like my Facebook page here!

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 05
I talked about this eyeshadow stick in detail here and have been using it every single day of the month! I used it by its own or along with other eyeshadows. I love the neutral rosy-brown colour which is perfect in any occasion. It lasts all day, is resistant to hot and humid weather, even without eye primer.

Bioderma Sesibio Deo 
I have never thought I would include a deodorant in my favourites. But this anti-perspirant is really effective and works wonders even if there is a heat wave! The good news? It is perfect for really sensitive skins, reduce irritations after shaving + it is alcohol and aluminum salts free. A must have!

MAC Mineralize in Soft and Gentle
Each time I am going out at a fancy dinner or a girls night, this is my secret weapon. Applied with a small brush on the top of my cheekbones, this velvety light peachy-gold powder with frost/metallic finish gives the nicest flawless and glowy finish to the skin.

Sleek Rose Gold Blush
The full review with swatches of this product is here so click on the link to read more. I have used it loads this summer! this corally-pink is so gorgeous with a bit of a tan and act as a blush and an highlighter as it is shimmery. Love everything from the packaging to the colour and affordable price.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in 17 Rose Millesime 
 I am kind of a lip products addict (read my "Lip Products Addict TAG" here) and for me, sticking to the same lipstick for 3 weeks in a row means something. This beautiful fresh strawberry shade with a touch coral has a nice satin finish, glides like a charm and keeps your lips hydrated. Full review with swatches coming soon!

Kusmi Green Teas in Imperial Label and Rose
I love my tea and I have been reaching for those 2 Kusmi Teas again and again this month, so I though it was fair to include them in my monthly favourites! Both are green teas: Label imperial feels really luxurious mixing green tea leaves, orange and cinnamon and the Rose green tea is really delicate a a must have for all rose products lovers.

Benefit the POREfesional 
 To make my makeup sweat/heat resistant, I have applied religiously the POREfesional primer from Benefit after my moisturiser and before my foundation/base. This product was already part of my April's faves but what can I say, it is the best to make your makeup last and minimise your pores!

What products have you been loving this month?
