Current Favourites | July 2015



From the dry shampoo that delivers oomph, to the perfect brown lip duo. These favourites have very quickly worked their way into my everyday routine, and will happily remain there. July along with its' temperamental weather has overall been a delightful month. Working IMATS left me fragile on my feet, and just that bit poorer than usual. On an even higher note, the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Hot Cloth Cleanser (what a mouthful aye?) has been working wonders for my combination/ dry skin. The formula itself is creamy, nourishing and soothing, but then when used with the hot cloth, slightly exfoliates and removes all nasties from the skin's surface. Who would have thought it, cloth and cleanser- the dynamic duo of the skincare world. Superdrug's Naturally Radiant line is almost always on offer, but even at its' standard price it's still only £5.99 and claims to 'Awaken skins natural glow'- who wouldn't want that? Another product that has been fabulously contributing to my complexion, is the brand spanking new Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation. With supposed 'Invisible Cover', this foundation is as light as a feather on the skin and blends beautifully. A battle commenced when trying to get this product at IMATS, but after a lot of dedication and shuffling, I got my hands on it. The packaging is sleek, and classic of course, and the 'ultra' formulation has a medium to build-able coverage. When applied to the skin it 100% has a more natural, sheer finish in comparison to the HD Original. Great product for those of us who don't like a lot of foundation on the skin.

 Having not really been a fan of cat-eye glasses, these Topshop Sadie Cateye Sunglasses have not left my side. They're my personal Summer essential, and really frame my face well. Despite being a controversial pair for some, there's no denying that they instantly add class to any outfit. Speaking of Summer... oily hair is always a no, but with all this heat and sweat sometimes it's inevitable. The Batiste Dry Shampoo has been in every magazine, blog and favourites- and for good reason. It's not only a quick solution for those of us on a busy schedule, but is also great for adding instant volume to flat and dull hair. For hair that gets really oily really quickly, this is a can sent from heaven. For those who don't know, I am the real brown lips queen- not Kylie. A fellow friend and MUA recently recommended 'Cappucino' Lip Pencil by Rimmel, and in her words..."It's like Wonderbra for lips". The colour is brown with an ever so slight warm tone to it, making it fab for plumping your lips without all that shot glass business. It works well when used to define the natural lip line, and is perfect when married with MAC 'Taupe' Lipstick- yes, another brown. This typically creamy and pigmented lipstick by MAC, has just the right amount of warm undertone to make your lips look and feel fuller.

  5. Batiste Dry Shampoos are always a monthly favorite for me, more like a weekly favorite. I use dry shampoo daily almost!

  6. The Batiste Dry Shampoo is a favourite of mine too! I have very fine, long hair which means it gets oily very quickly. I don't want to wash it every day so this product saves my life for second day hair!

  7. I've been loving the Rimmel Cappuccino lip liner too as I've been experimenting with a Kylie Jenner type lip. I love that it's described as the Wonderbra for lips, mine definitely need a boost. I've been on the look out for some cat eye sunglasses but never thought to have a browse in Topshop, being plus-size I totally forget that it exists. I'll definitely be having a browse.
