July Beauty Favourites


Hello Lovelies!

How crazy is it that July is nearly over already? I am getting quite excited about Autumn coming. It is my favourite season for fashion and make up! I also love the weather when it's really crisp outside and the leaves start falling. I'm probably depressing all of you that love Summer so I will just crack on with the products I have been loving this month!

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturiser
I picked this up at work the other week and have been utterly obsessed since. I love moisturising and as a complete tan-aholic we all know the number one rule is to moisturise! But I have to admit after a shower or a bath or even on a normal evening I hate the effort of applying moisturiser and waiting for it to sink in. With this you literally spray and give a quick rub in and you are good to go. It sinks in so quick and it sprays a nice light even spray too! I thought it might come out in a squirt and you would have to spread it out yourself but it actually comes out in a lovely light mist that is really easy and quick to rub in. The cocoa one smells divine too! This is exclusive to Boots at the moment I would definitely recommend it if you can be a bit lazy about the moisturiser like me!
L'oreal Matt & Messy Salt Spray
Another new addition to my collection over the past few weeks. I had seen this advertised on the television and I was intrigued. I have never used a salt spray before but recently (as you may have heard me harping on about on twitter) my hair has been abit lifeless recently so I have started taking steps to combat that. So along with the next two products I will be speaking about this has really helped! It just gives my hair lovely texture and makes it look like I have more hair than I have! It doesn't give a sticky feeling that I was afraid it would and it smells lovely! I spray this on my hair from about my ears down and just give it a ruffle.
John Freida Luxurious Volume Shampoo & Conditioner
These have been a god-send to me this past month. I don't think I have ever fallen for a shampoo and conditioner like I have with these! They give me so much volume, my hair has been feeling and looking so much thicker since I've started to use these! I will definitely be repurchasing these when I run out and that is a big thing for me to say because I normally just use what ever is in the house. I would even go as far to say that I prefer them to the Lush BIG shampoo that I have been using the past while. Plus they are easier for me to get, cheaper and they don't dry my hair out as much. So I will be using these on a more day to day basis and saving my Lush for special occasions!
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon- Peach on the Beach
I think Bourjois are really doing well with their releases lately! Everything that I've tried from their new releases I've loved. Now I have only had the Lip Crayons for about two weeks but I swear its love! Particularly Peach on the Beach! I have been looking for something to use everyday instead of my beloved YSL Peach Passion and I think I've found it! I had never tried a lip crayon before these but now I completely see what the hype is about! I love the formula, the color, the lasting power, the packaging..everything! I really hope that they release more colors for Autumn/Winter like a nice berry or deep red! I am a woman obsessed!
Bourjois Cream Blusher- Healthy Glow
Again from Bourjois are their cream blushes. In particular Healthy Glow. I love a good peachy/coral cheek colour and the formula of these are just lovely. They are cream to powder blushes so they are really easy to blend but I find that they last longer than your average cream blush. The color really does exactly what it says, it perks up my face and makes me look alot healthier and more awake!
Maybelline Mint For Life
We all love a good mint nail polish and when I seen this much hyped maybelline one doing the rounds on youtube and the blogging community I thought who am I to pass up a good hyped product? I have had this on my nails constantly since I got it. The lasting power is absolutely amazing! I have really put them to the test the past week and have come away with little/no chips! Very impressed indeed! The brush is my favourite fan shape, I just can't be dealing with those tiny brushes! And this mint color may be passing out Mint Candy Apple as number 1 in my heart! I really want to try a few more shades in this line as I was so impressed with Mint For Life!
YSL Touche Eclat Foundation
In Ireland the past few weeks the weather has just been phenomenal! It's been so unbelievably warm here, so of course I have been wanting complete minimal make up but still wanting to look socially acceptable. Enter my Touche Eclat foundation. Perfect lightweight foundation and it gives me that glowy look to my skin that I constantly crave! It doesn't feel or look cakey at all on the skin but still covers anything I don't want shown. I think I will be reaching for this foundation all year round as it just is the most perfect foundation I have tried so far!

  2. Part of me wants to try the Vaseline Spray and go, ive heard so many good things xx


  3. I love the bourjois cream blushes too! I love the sound of mint for life. Lovely favourites hun xx

  4. Have you tried the Nivea In-Shower moisturiser thingy? I think it's similar to this Vaseline one, isn't it? But yeah, I've heard great things about it - I think i'm going to have to lip into boots and get it.
    The blush and the crayons too have been on my to-get list, too. Great set of products!


  5. I love the matte and messy spray... I've been using it for over a week now and have a review of it scheduled for my blog next week.
    I might try out the lip crayon from your list!

  6. Everyone seems to love the Bourjois Lip Crayons, myself included. I'm a little scared of salt sprays incase they weigh my hair down, but this one sounds lovely. John Frieda's another personal fave, I love the frizz ease section.


  7. I really want to try out the Vaseline spray moisturiser & the YSL foundation sounds fab for this hot weather we've been having.

    Maybe Its Megan Leigh xx

  8. I've been loving the Colour Boost crayons too. I only have one in the shade Orange Punch but seeing as I just love how glossy and moisturising it feels on the lips, Peach on the Beach is on my radar. Will definitely pop into Boots later on this week to pick it up. I've had my eye on the YSL Peach Passion lipstick so reading that you've found an everyday alternative in the form of Peach on the Beach, makes me want it even more. As for Mint for Life, my nails need this pretty colour :)

  9. The Touché Éclat foundation is the best foundation I've ever used! I'm so in love with it, it's a amazing! Thanks for the reviews! xx


  10. need to try l'oreal matt and messy salt spray, sounds great x
