July already, can you believe it?! And once again I'm late getting this post up... I do apologise. I think I need to get better at scheduling!
Steamcream - As a sufferer of dry and quite sensitive skin, I am on the constant look out for a moisturiser which is really going to hydrate and sooth my skin. I think I have found the perfect (or best yet) product in this. I love that it is made from natural ingredients, and that I'm not rubbing chemicals into my skin. And, as a bonus, they come in gorgeous little tins... it took me about half an hour to choose which one to get!
Real Techniques Brushes - I decided to get a few of these brushes when the hype first began on all of the beauty blogs. I've never had many makeup brushes, only 1 Mac brush and a couple from ELF, but Real Techniques have completely convinced me that brushes are a must-have! I can't believe the quality... they're great, especially for the prices, which I think are very reasonable. It's nice to not have to splash out a fortune (part of the reason I've never stocked up on Mac brushes!) My initial thoughts when I opened these was just how soft they are, they're silky soft, and it's hard not to sit and rub them up and down your cheek... trust me! I can actually see a difference in my makeup when applied with these brushes too, they make it so much easier to achieve a flawless finish. I'm definitely going to buy more.
Topshop Brighton Rock lipstick - This was the first Topshop makeup item I ever bought, and I always seem to choose it for night's out. I wore it last Saturday night, and it never disappoints. I find that the colour is really long lasting on my lips, and it doesn't dry out. Although I think it suits my skin tone better when I'm tanned, I'm still getting lots of use out of it. This is definitely my favourite bright lipstick.
Ciate Nail Polish - This is my one and only Ciate nail polish, but I'll definitely be looking into trying some more! I got this one free with In Style magazine last month, and now I totally wish I'd got the other colours too. It's a gorgeous grey/lilac colour, the quality is amazing, and it applies so smoothly! If you have any recommendations of colours for me to try next, please let me know!
