July 2015 Favourites

Heeelllooooo August! My favourite month of the year is here (mainly because it's my birthday this month but also because it's Summer and there's always lots going on). Anyway, I didn't do a favourites post last month as I was still using pretty much the same things as the month before, but throughout July I've been using some summery products that I've found myself reaching for pretty much every day. 

The first product I've recently reignited my love for is the Bourjois Bronzing Primer. I'd forgot how much I love this product. It's like a smooth mousse that looks scary and dark when first applied, but once blended into the skin it leaves the most beautiful, natural looking sunkissed glow, and leaves the skin feeling velvety soft. The next product to go alongside the bronzing primer is the MAC Prep+Prime BB Beauty Balm Compact. I recently wrote a review on this (here), and I've been loving it this month as it's perfect for the Summer when you just want something a bit more sheer in coverage and it leaves a healthy, dewy glow. Next up is a product that has become somewhat of a holy grail in my makeup bag. I've used the Soap & Glory Kick Ass Blur & Brighten Concealer Crayon every single day since I got it (review here). Words can't describe how much I love this concealer. The texture is just so unbelievably creamy and blends like a dream, which is perfect for my dry skin. It's so brightening and I can't imagine not using it any time soon. For the brows, I've actually been using the Maybelline Color Tattoo in the shade Permanent Taupe. I know it's meant to be an eyeshadow, but honestly it's fab as a cream brow product. It does run very ashy (verging on grey) but that's great for me as it compliments my blonde hair perfectly. I've been using this with my beloved Real Techniques Eyeliner Brush from the Nic's Picks Collection to gently line the brows and add very light hair like strokes to fill in any sparse areas. Last but not least is the Benefit They're Real Mascara. I'll be honest I was never blown away by this mascara when I'd tried samples in the past, and I definitely preferred their Roller Lash. But when my Mam gave me the full size a few weeks ago I thought I'd give it a second chance and to my surprise I absolutely loved it. I love how this separates and lengthens my lashes without clumping. Sorry I ever doubted you Benefit!

What have you been loving this month?
