July 2015 Beauty Favourites

This year really is flying by isn't it, I feel like I say this every month but its true! This month I have pretty much all new products that I have discovered this month and I have fallen in love with them. Throughout the month of July I have been seriously back into beauty and make up and playing around this products and I am so glad I did because I found these gems.

50 Blogs & YouTubers to Follow

When I saw Kirstie (A Yellow Brick Blog) do a post and video about 50 blogs and you tubers to follow I thought it was such a great idea and she included me which made me so excited as I have been a fan of her blog for ages! I have been getting really into reading beauty blogs and YouTubers again and have found some amazing ones so I thought this type of post would be brilliant to share the love! I find it so insane that there is YouTubers will millions of subscribers I have never even heard about! I am going to share 25 blogs and 25 YouTubers to follow so hopefully you find someone new to read and watch and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! There is a lot of beauty with some blog channels included too. In no particular order.....

Avène Cleanance Expert & Rich Crème Recovery Cream

Something I need to do more often than I do is take care of my skin. You can have the best make up in the world but if you don't take of your skin first it isn't going to do anything. When it comes to skincare one brand I always trust is Avène, I have featured them many times in the two years that I have been blogging and some of the brands products have really saved my skin, as have these two.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick

I used to hate lipstick..oh how things have changed. I was literally so excited when I won Kimmy's (Beauty Isles) high end lipstick giveaway and this lipstick was one of the ones that I won along with a Chanel and a Bobbi Brown lipstick. I have never been a red lipstick kind of girl but I think I might have been converted...

Everyday Face #11

Since I am off work for the next six weeks, perks of working in a school, I finally have the time to actually play around with my make up again and take my time in the mornings. It has been so long since I did my last everyday face post and I have been using so many products and many different ones than last time. I have been trying to use up some of my beauty stash too so some of these products are almost all used up - hooray!

Bourjois La Laque Nail Polish in Flambant Rose

When I saw these Bourjois Nail Polishes get released, the bottle really intrigued me I must admit so I was very excited to be a beauty product tester. I do think the packaging is good if you own them all because it would look fab sitting on a shelf. During the summer months, coral shades are pretty much always on my nails and if they aren't they are on my toes so this Bourjois La Laque Polish in Flambant Rose* looked perfect.

Beauty Wishlist #31

I have gotten back into watching loads of beauty YouTubers this month and in particular I have been loving Shaaanxo's videos! As I have been watching so many beauty videos my wishlist has grown massively again. This month I have decided to only buy a couple of things instead of wasting loads of money on things I don't really want just because they are new. 

NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Fervor + GIVEAWAY!

NARS has been brand that that I have tried a couple of products from in the past and have really loved, the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer will forever be one of my favourites, but I have always wanted to try one of the NARS Dual-Intensity Blushes* and it is finally that time that I gave one a try and I have fallen in love! And not only did I get to try one but two of my readers will also win one so make sure you enter at the end of this post!

Witch Skincare

Witch is a brand that I have always seen on the shelves since my early teens and have used a couple of their products throughout the years. Recently my skin has been acting up and I have been struggling to keep it under control so these three products couldn't have come at a better time! I have been testing them out for the past couple of weeks and I think I might have found a couple of favourites already.

Bronze Ambition Tanning Mousse & Wash Off Tan

I have been on such a massive tanning kick recently and I just can't stop until I have tried every tan on the market. I am all for saving a bit of money and if I can find a great tan for less than a £5er I am all for it! I have very pale skin, especially on my legs and I have been looking for a tan that is going to give me a healthy glow so I don't reflect the sun off my legs and blind everyone in the Summer and I think I have found it.

Pür Minerals Green Correcting Primer

Many months ago while in Marks and Spencer I tested out the Pür Minerals Green Correcting Primer and was amazed at how well it worked on the back of my hand. I finally picked it up at the beginning of the month and I haven't looked back, I am seriously regretting not picking it up sooner because it is doing exactly what I have been looking for in a product and I don't think I am ever going to be able to be without it.

Summer/Festival Wishlist

With the Summer being in full swing finally, although the past few days the sun has hardly been seen - thanks England, I thought it was time to update my summer wishlist and include a couple of times which I think are perfect for all of the festivals happening this summer. I have found some great items , from fashion to shoes to accessories I have a bit of everything today! In the summer I find myself wearing a lot more patterns and prints and bright colours which really shows what I am attracted to in this wishlist. 

Jewellery & Stationary from Raspberrykiss Shop

I have been a long time reader of Shannons blog - Raspberry Kiss. So when I heard she had opened a little online shop I was so excited. She has everything from stationary to jewellery to phone cases and the best bit is, everything is under £6 which is such a bargain for how fab some of the items are. Shannon got in contact and wanted to send me a surprise package of things from her shop and I am loving everything that arrived through my front door.

REVIEW: Yankee Candle Egyptian Musk Tart

It feels like forever since I have done a candle review and that is because I hadn't really been burning any. I am not too sure what happened to me to be honest! When I saw that Yankee Candle has released a new collection called Out of Africa, I knew I wanted to try one or two of the scents and Egyptian Musk sounded right up my street. 

Zoella Beauty Body Mists

One of my favourite products from the Zoella Beauty range is the body mists. I must prefer to use body mists over perfume because I change my mind about what scents I like almost every week and find them to have as good scent kick off as some perfumes at a much cheaper price. When Zoella released her new Tutti Fruity line (you can check out my first impressions here) I was so excited to see a second body mist fragrance.

Beauty Bargains #1

I for one love finding a good saving on beauty products. Whenever I shop online I always check multiple websites to see the lowest price and check for discount codes. While I have been doing this recently I have found some great deals which I thought would be perfect to share today - who doesn't love to pay less?!

Makeup Revolution Goddess of Faith Highlighter

I have been a big fan of Makeup Revolution highlighters for a while now and have been so obsessed with the Makeup Revolution Radiant Light in Exhale for the longest time and used it everyday. But a week or so ago I decided to switch it up and use my Makeup Revolution I Heart Makeup Goddess of Faith Triple Baked Highlighter.

Whiter Teeth with Doll White

If there is some thing I am always trying to improve, it is the whiteness of my teeth. I have tried so many different toothpastes and while my teeth are pretty white naturally andluckily, I wanted something to make them as white as Simon Cowell's which is where Doll White come in. I have seen so much on social media about whitening strips so I thought I would give the 14 day set* from Doll White.

Nip+Fab Dragon's Blood Fix Cleansing Pads

I have been wanting to try some products from Nip+Fab for the longest time but I never knew what to go for first. One night when I couldn't sleep I saw that Superdrug had a lot of the brands products on better than half price so I decided to give the Dragon's Blood Fix Cleansing Pads a try. I have seen quite a few celebrities love the brand so I thought it would be worth giving it a try and seeing what all the fuss is about. 

The Libbie Club July Box

When I first saw about The Libbie Club on BeautyQueenUK's blog, I knew I wanted to sign up and see if what it was all about. A little while after I signed up I got an email to say that it had been accepted and a few days later the July box arrived! The Libbie Club is a box specially for their members free of charge each month (once you have received your first box you need to complete all of the requirements on your dashboard to get another and have someone purchase through your offers). This months box made me so excited when it arrived because I haven't tried any of these three products or even the brands!

Beauty Wishlist #30

Once again my wishlist is getting far too big! This week I have found so many new releases that I just have to get my hands on, you know for the blog of course! I have been getting back into beauty YouTube videos recently and a lot of these products are inspired by those. Zoella has released a new range of beauty products to her beauty range and I must admit I have actually ordered the whole line but I couldn't not include them in todays post!

BOOK REVIEW: The Baby & the Bride by Laura Barnard

If you saw my first book review last week then you will already know about my love of the first book in this series, The Debt and the Doormat (click here if you haven't read that already). I tweeted about how much I was loving the first book and Laura Barnard actually sent me The Baby and the Bride* to review which I was so excited about because I was actually going to buy it myself!

Zoella Beauty Tutti Fruity Range // First Impressions

I have been a Zoella fan since before she started her YouTube channel in 2009. I read her blog for years and she might just be one of my favourite people on the internet. When she released her first Beauty line last year I was pretty excited and have tried almost everything from that range and liked it. When I saw that a Tutti Fruity range was coming I was so excited that I actually purchased the whole range - oops.

La Roche Posay Effaclar K (+ Before and After Images)

I have mentioned this in many of my skin care posts but I get terrible and painful breakouts, known as nodules and cysts which stick around for at least 3 weeks before they even start to go away. La Roche Posay is one of my favourite brands when it comes to skincare and I can't believe I have never tried the Effaclar K* before now - it is a god send!

Summer Beauty Essentials with Cosme-De

With the warm weather looking to stay, I needed to switch out my beauty product essentials for summer friendly ones. During the summer I feel like I need all new products than what I use in the rest of the year because I need everything waterproof and sweat proof as well as being hydrating for the skin.

Everyday Summer Lips // Top 5 Products

I don't know about you but I need to have hydrating products on my lips during the Summer months. If I don't my lips get cracked and flakey which nobody wants. These five products not only give my lips a gorgeous hint of colour and shine/gloss but they also keep my lips hydrated through out the day. I have a mix of high end and high street products that I have been using on my lips and these five are my go to products for my lips.

Benefit POREfessional: License to Blot

This product couldn't have come at a better time for me, with the heat wave we had last week and the generally warmer weather it is safe to say my face has been looking like a shine machine. Benefit recently released a new product to the POREfessional range, License to Blot! I haven't actually seen too many reviews on this so I didn't really know what to expect but having been using it for the past few weeks I have really been enjoying it.

Nails inc Gel Effect Nail Polishes

For years I have been a massive Nails inc fan but I am only just trying the new Gel Effect Nail Polishes for the first time this month and I am hear to report all amazing things. I loved them from the first time I tried them, so much so I ended up ordering 5 more shades in one go - opps! Recently they repackaged their nail polishes and I love the change, they look a lot more luxurious which fits with the quality of the nail polishes and the price tag.

Disney Wishlist #6: The Little Mermaid

If there is one Disney Princess that has always been my favourite, it is Ariel. The Little Mermaid still is my favourite Disney movie too. When I saw that the Vans Disney collection was getting realised I don't think I have ever been so excited. I have actually already ordered the shoes featured in this post but I know I am going to need to pick up a few more things from the collection.

REVIEW: Yankee Candle Pink Sands Tart

I have really been enjoying my fruity and summer scents and Yankee Candle Pink Sands is just that. I have had this a couple of times already and it is delicious. Pink Sands is one of Yankee Candles  classic scents and I could be truly gutted if they discontinued it like they did with my all time favourite Bahama Breeze!

June 2015 Beauty Favourites

Cant believe it is that time again, monthly favourites time! This past month I have discovered so many new products that I have fallen in love with as well as a product that I have been trying out again that I hated at first but now love. Strange how those things happen but I am glad I didn't bin it now!
