This is the first of many monthly posts about my favourite beauty essentials. I hope you’ll keep checking in to see the products I have to review which will include both old, reliable favourites and the new kids on the beauty block. I have included links for each product, should you wish to buy one yourself.
As you may already know from my previous coconut oil post, I absolutely love this stuff! I eat coconut oil, drink coconut oil and use it on my face and body. I put it on my face each night to keep wrinkles and dry skin at bay. I love how soft my skin feels in the morning. I also put some in the ends of my hair to stop them getting dry and split. There are so many uses for this miracle product and recently Lucy Bee (the queen of coconut oil!) has released a book which suggests tons of beauty uses for coconut oil. I will be buying that book next month – keep your eyes peeled for a review!
I am so in love with this lipstick! It is one of five shades created by Kate Moss with Rimmel to celebrate her 15 year collaboration with them. I got this in the shade Boho Nude, but to be honest all of them are beautiful.
I am always a bit dubious about buying lipsticks that claim they will stay on your lips for hours and hours, but I have to say this one does hang around for quite a long time! I did notice that some of the product came off when I ate my lunch, etc. but it was still visible on my lips afterwards. The lipstick is also very moisturising, which is a big plus point especially as I wear a lot of matte lipsticks which have a tendency to dry my lips out. They’re currently part of a ‘Buy one get one half price’ offer in Boots at the moment, so I bought the eyebrow gel too – another brilliant product.
Ahh I love this palette so so much! It’s a real bargain too! I love peachy toned makeup at the moment as it makes my blue eyes pop and it is perfect for the summer. The powders in this product are highly pigmented and very little product is needed for a beautiful finish. I have a feeling I will have this palette for a very long time!
I will let the photos do the talking with this mascara! It’s the best mascara I’ve had in a long time. I have incredibly short eyelashes and have always struggled to find a mascara which both thickens them out and lengthens them. This mascara does the job beautifully.
Let me know – what are your beauty favourites this July?
