Hello lovelies! I cannot believe I am writing this post… where has June gone? Anyway, July has started off so good. Today I went to watch the Grand Depart of the Tour de France. It was amazing. I feel so proud to be from Yorkshire! The atmosphere was unbelievable and it’s so nice to see how everyone comes out to show their support. If the Tour is coming near you I really do recommend you go out and get involved! So before I get carried away, onto the favourites…
Clinique | Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm I’ve had this cleanser a while now after my brother bought me it for my birthday. Now I was rather worried about how to use this at first. It’s not a liquid, it’s not a cream but it’s like a solidified oil. You literally scoop some into your fingertips and it melts away into a silky oily fluid. I use this all over my face, massaging it in before rinsing or removing with a wet flannel. It even removed my waterproof mascara (it does make your eyes a little blurry though, but never irritates). I honestly cannot get enough of this and it lasts so long. You can get yours for £22 here.
Revlon | Colourburst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti This was the very first lip butter I tried. I really wanted to branch out with my lip colours and as this is orange it’s a pretty good place to start. It does look rather daunting in the stick, however it applies so lightly and you can build the colour to as light/pigmented as you like. I find it looks beautiful with bronzed skin! It’s a lovely formula which is very moisturising and how cute is the packaging! You can get yours for £7.99 here.
Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder Obviously had to have something French in here, stick with Le Tour De France! This is such an amazing bronzer, it’s safe to say bourjois definitely do the best bronzers right now. I’ve had this for a while but never put it to much use. However, I’ve seen Tanya Burr using it quite a lot and she inspired me to get it back out. It’s the perfect matte bronzer which you can use to contour or just for an all over bronze. It also smells beautiful, a little bit like chocolate. If you want to be all bronzed up you can get this for £7.99 here.
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner | Black I have seen so many mixed reviews on this. It was recently a gift in Glamour magazine and I have used it every day since. First of all I only really use the felt tip liquid liners as I find brushes so difficult. But I really do not find it scratchy at all. It goes on so easily and smooth and it’s really helped me to create a winged eye. It stays on all day, without any smudging or bleeding. I honestly do not know why people have had so many problems? Maybe it’s because I got mine from Marks & Spencers? I cannot recommend this enough, you can get yours for £12.00 here
Lee Stafford Beach Babe Sea Salt Spray So, in the quest to get long Rapunzel hair I have tried reducing the amount of heat I use. This has meant I have been letting my hair dry naturally and sleeping with wet hair eeeeek. Luckily for me I do have wavy hair anyway, however I spray this on wet hair and it looks like I’ve just stepped out of the sea! I love what salt water does to your hair on holiday and this mimics that look so well. I use this in the morning too to add a little bit more texture, it also smells amazing, as all Lee Stafford products do! If you want beachy waves you can get this for £7.99 here.
