July / August - A few of my favorite things...

No7 Brow Pencil in Blonde -
I've never paid much attention to my brows, but I recently took an interest in filling them in slightly. I tried so many cheap pencils, all of which have been way too dark. I really didn't want to end up with a scouse brow! This is a lovely, light and creamy pencil, that looks completely natural. I love that it has a spoolie too, as it helps blend the colour through.

Nivea Invisible Protection Spray -
I know this is a random one, but I love this sun spray! It's so handy, especially on the beach, as there's no rubbing in involved and is completely non-greasy. Simply spray all over and enjoy lying in the sun without sizzling!

MUA Mosaic Bronzer -
Not sure why I picked this up, but I'm glad I did. It's a gorgeous, light bronzer that adds a gorgeous glow to the cheeks without looking too much. I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a deeply bronzed look, but if you're pale like me, it's a lovely alternative to bright blushes.

ELF Mineral Lipstick in Party Pink -
I've had this for a long time and for some reason it's been neglected. Unlike the name suggests, I wouldn't describe the colour as pink, but a light coral. I don't usually suit orange toned lipsticks but this is incredibly soft, but still adds a pop of colour. The formula is very creamy yet really long lasting once applied. It costs £3.75, which is a complete bargain.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent -
My new fave powder. I've been using the Mac mineralise skin finish for a few months and it's on it's last legs, so i'm desperately trying to preserve it... which is why i picked this up a few months ago. I love it. It's soft, glides on to the skin and lasts all day. It works really well with my new foundation (rimmel wake me up foundation - review below) and is a complete bargain. Cannot recommend this enough!

John Frieda Daily Miracle Treatment - 
This is a leave in spray aimed to revitalize hair and add shine. I use it after I have washed my hair, spritzing it all over my hair and focusing it on the end. It makes a huge difference if i leave my hair to dry naturally. It leaves my hair shiny and really reduces the appearance of my split ends - win win.

Soap & Gloary 'Calm One' bubble bath -
I received this for my birthday and keep repurchasing it. It's gorgeously creamy and leaves my skin feeling soft and smelling gorgeous. What else can I say? Give it a try!

I love S&G products, especially their shower gel so I'll have to give their bubble bath too! Interested in that John frieda product too, I use something similar from Aussie and I agree, it makes such a difference!
