Favourite Things In July

There we have it, another month of the year has been and gone and thankfully it was another good one. July was filled with lots of fun times, exciting new beauty releases and I treated myself to a sparkly new MacBook Pro which I am loving. July went super fast and I'm pretty glad of this as I am very excited for August, the month my first little nephew is due to be born! I am overjoyed about becoming an Auntie and I can't wait for the happiness the upcoming months will bring. I love reading monthly favourites posts and as I have some golden products this month, I thought I would share them.

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Jelly is quite a new product to my routine but one I have quickly developed a solid relationship with. This product is a very hydrating moisturiser that makes my skin feel so amazing. I apply this product after I've cleansed my skin and before my makeup, I like how it leaves my skin feeling slightly tacky, allowing my makeup to settle nicely over the top and stay in place all day. 

Moving on to masks, the GLAMGLOW Gravity Mud Firming Treatment is a lovely face mask that sets onto the skin within minutes, leaving the skin feeling firm and plump. I am only 23 but I am concerned about skin ageing and any products that claim to slow down this process, are ones I want to try. I love the concept of this mask and how it makes my skin feel. Another mask I have really enjoyed this month is the Spacemask, an eye mask designed to send you into a deep relaxation using heat. The mask itself is very simple to apply, the warmth of the mask makes you feel instantly relaxed and stress-free. I have really needed this product as its been a very busy month for me, its a great one to come home to after a long day.  

My makeup favourites for July have been three staple products. Firstly this Nip + Fab Eyeshadow Palette has become a new favourite in my routine purely down to the beautiful yet simple shades that allow you to create so many lovely looks. This palette contains 12 very unique and extremely pigmented shadows in a mixture of mattes and shimmers. I'm definitely more of a matte girl and the warm orange shade in this palette has become a well loved favourite. 
Lastly to mention is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector 'Opal' a beautiful champagne toned highlighter that has the texture of no other product I've used before. No matter how much of a bad makeup day I am having, I can always rely on this product to brighten my skin and make me feel a lot better. Finally, my favourite lipstick for this month is the Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick 'Chauffeur.' Of course I was drawn in to this lipstick by the packaging but the shade itself and the formula is fantastic considering it only set me back £3.00. The quality of these particular lipsticks is a lot better than the original line from the brand, I would highly recommend.

What have been your favourites this month?
