July Favourites

Favourites time again...

Seriously, I find it so hard to pick each month. I like to share the love and this month having new products to play with has made it even more difficult. For July I have picked a couple of items that aren't beauty items but I have really enjoyed them so they get an inclusion. 

Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in No.21 Midnight Brown
This shadow is a favourite of mine for simple brown smoky eye. I just apply this shade all of the lid and blend out with a fluffy brush. It is so simple and the end result is a gorgeous effortless eye make up. It really makes me think of the 'Burberry look'. This shadow is also buttery soft and for a sheer shadow it is nicely pigmented. 

MAC Lipstick in Impassioned
When I am working I am really boring with my lipsticks - think pale, neutral and a little boring. Therefore Impassioned has been a bit neglected lately. I wore it the day I went to Chadstone and my love was reignited. I received about 4 compliments on it and I just remembered how much I love it. Impassioned, I promise not to neglect you again, forgive me? 

BYS Blush Trio in Heart Skipped a Beat*
I have not used BYS in years - my memories of the cheap cosmetics I used in my early high school days are not the best. I know there are a lot of bloggers that love some of their products though. So when I received this I was hesitant but excited to try it out. The three shades are all very pretty and pigmented. They can be a little difficult to blend and a little powdery but nothing a fluffy brush can't deal with. For the price (under $8) you can't complain. I especially love the first pale, shimmery pink.

Kosmea Certified Organic Rose Hip Oil
I blogged about this in July here. I declared it my winter skin saviour and still stick by that. This instantly hydrates my skin and leaves it feeling so lovely and soft. Highly recommend. 

evo Day of Grace Leave-in Conditioner 
Another evo product that has found a place in my beauty loving heart. This is excellent for de-tangling and un-knotting my long and sometimes unruly hair. It is like the old strawberry scented spray for knotty hair but more mature. It smells better too. 

Hart of Dixie
Whilst waiting for the new seasons of my favourite shows to start in the US (think Criminal Minds, The Vampire Diaries, Bones, Revenge, Scandal) I had to find something new to watch. I had the pilot episode on my iPad that I downloaded ages ago when it was free. I instantly feel in love and picked up the first season on DVD and I am now half way through season two on my iPad. I am in love with Rachel Bilson she is so cute and stylish!  

Karma Senses 100% Natural Soy Candle in Blackberry Ripple
I picked this candle up for two bucks in Coles a couple of weeks ago and it is really good for the price. The blackberry scent is gorgeous. I wish I had picked up more of this scent. 

So there is my favourites! I am now 20% through my July blogging target. I also remembered that I haven't put up my blog sale yet... Oops I swear I have a hopeless memory. I will probably post it up in the next couple of days. 

What are your July favourites?

  1. Great post! I might have to pick up some of those candles! I usually get Airwick but sometimes they are a bit exxy...
    I have recently started using rosehip oil again, I agree it is amazing for winter.
