July Favourites

July was such a busy month for me, but I did enjoy getting away in the beginning of the month. But it's back to Uni next week, and I have a lot to get organised this week so I wanted to go ahead and write my favourites up while I had a spare moment!


The goods


Firstly there have been two lipsticks I have gotten so much use out of this month. The first one is Mac's Hue. I know that I've had this in a couple of posts already but I still can't get over how perfect this nude shade is. The second one is Honky Tonk from Australis, which is a perfect peachy pink.

Sticking with the peachy pink theme, the next two blushes are both so bright and pretty. The first is Mac's Supercontinental, which is a true orange peach shade. This colour would be flattering on any skin tone! The second is Nars' Deep Throat, which is more of a peachy pink shade. I find Deep Throat harder to work with of the two, as it can sometimes enhance the redness in my cheeks, but both of them are equally as lovely in texture and finish!

I asked for a sample of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum and the lady was kind enough to give me four of these sachets. Now I love skincare but I didn't really ever believe anything could work miracles overnight, until I tried this. Oh my goodness. My skin looked so amazing the day after, and the texture improved dramatically by the time the four sachets were used up. I have a full size bottle on the way to me right now! Secondly is this Gentle Exfoliating Toner by Clarins. This was less of an instant miracle worker but I have been using it about a month now and I think it helps to inject more life into my skin, and brighten up my complexion. I use it about every second night.


I had been wanting the The Balm Meet Matte Nude Palette since I first saw it online, and I finally came across it in stores this month. And I can say that it completely lived up to my expectations! I have been using shades from this almost every day since I got it, and swatches will be coming this week, so stay tuned for that post!


I also wanted to mention a couple of nail polishes! The first is Ulta3 Outasight, which is an aweome black glitter top coat! And the second is Ozotic 516, that I mentioned in the Rainbow Tag, which is a pink holographic polish!

So that's it for another month! What has been your favourite product this month?
