July was a fairly busy month for me, which explains why my posts weren't as consistent as they usually are, but all is back to normal now. Although I've bought quite a lot of new makeup recently, this favourites post consists mainly of old favourites that are making an appearance again, but you'll get to see all the new goodies I've been trying out in reviews all throughout August!
Elf Clarifying Pressed Powder in Rosy Beige
This powder is so old, I don't even know if Elf still sell them! I'm currently trying to sort through my makeup collection and use up older products, so that's why I began using this again. It reminds me so much of my beloved MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural - it's absolutely brilliant. It has a decent amount of coverage, as there were times on holiday where I applied a little bit of concealer and then just popped this over it to even out my skin tone and it worked really well. For such an inexpensive powder, it's excellent. It keeps your skin looking matte and fresh all day long and it doesn't transfer at all either. I've always loved Elf powders so I'd definitely recommend checking them out if you're on the hunt for a new face powder!
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
I know, I'm incredibly late to the party when it comes to this concealer! About two months ago I finally gave into the hype and bought this concealer, although I wasn't overly impressed by the matching foundation. I think the Wake Me Up concealer is an incredible dupe for MAC's Pro Longwear, and it's less than half the price! It just gives such a brightened effect under the eyes and the coverage is brilliant for blemishes too. It's become an everyday staple for me!
It's only €6.99, and my local Rimmel stands have an offer now where if you spend €12 on Rimmel products, you get a free Maxi Bronzer. So get yourself this and one (or all...) of the new Kate Moss nude lipsticks and you have yourself a fantastic deal!
Physician's Formula Glow Booster Bronzer
reviewed this bronzer last year when I got sent a few items from Physician's Formula's range to try, and I knew it would be my go-to product once the summer came along. I used this on holidays and now that I'm home, it's giving me that extra bit of a glow that I'm craving here in Ireland! The Glow Booster Bronzer is divided into four sections, one for each season. It contains four different bronzer colours, depending on the time of year and the colour of your skin. It's an excellent idea, one I'm surprised more brands haven't jumped on board with. This bronzer is perfect for adding that sun-kissed sheen to your face, regardless of the time of year. It also comes with a little brush that reminds me of a baby NARS Ita brush!
Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Styling Gel
Kiko Precision Liquid Eyeliner
Kiko Precision Lip Pencil in 300
Bath and Body Works Country Chic Body Lotion
So they are my favourites for the month of July - what are yours?
