Apologies for the lack of blog posts at the minute, I've had a bit of a disrupt to my schedule recently, but it's on it's way to being back to normal soon. So, for now here's another, slightly later than usual, monthly favourites.
Seventeen Skin Wow! 3 Way Highlighter
At the beginning of June, I went on a little Boots Haul and picked this up, not expecting to be blown away too much, so when I tried it out for the first time I was pleasantly surprised. It works lovely as a highlighter or mixed in my foundation, but I prefer to use it as a primer as it gives a lovely lit from within look.
Topshop Cream Blush - Head Over Heels
It will be no surprise to anyone that this blush is in my favourites, I've been raving about it all month! I featured it in both a Topshop Beauty Haul & Review and Spring To Summer Make-Up blog post and ever since I've been absolutely hooked, I'd even go as far as saying it's my favourite cream blush and I hope they bring out some more shades.
Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick - Rose
If there's one thing that Revlon do really well, it's lip products. I'm a big fan of the ColourBurst Matte balms, so I thought that I would try the shade 'Rose' from the Ultra HD lipstick range and it's hardly left my lips all month. I love that it feels like a lip balm, yet has the pigmentation and longevity of a lipstick. In fact, I've even picked up a few more shades since I loved 'Rose' so much.
Bleach London Super Cool Colour - Bruised Violet
When I was a teenager, I used to experiment with my hair all the time. So much in fact, that I had to stop experimenting so that my hair could repair itself. Ever since that, there hasn't been any hair-dye in my hair, although sometimes I do wonder what my hair would look like in a certain colour. That's why I love the Bleach London Super Cool Colours so much, as they stay in your hair depending on how often you wash it, yet cause no damage whatsoever. I think they're an incredible idea for Summer if you want to be a bit creative with your hair without causing it any damage. So far, I've used the shades 'Rose', 'The Big Pink' and I've used the shade 'Bruised Violet' twice this month and I love it. To see what it looks like on my hair, it's featured on this Weekly Snapshots blog post.
Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche Skinscent
I remember buying a bottle of this incredible perfume this time last year and falling in love with it, instantly making it my all-time Summer scent. It's fast becoming a blogger favourite and I can see why, it just smells like Summer in a bottle due to the gorgeous blend of coconut, vanilla, bergamot, amber, sandalwood and jasmine. I really recommend smelling it next time you come across it in a store, no words can describe how lovely it is.
Some other favourites:
Wacom Intuos Pen & Touch Small Graphics Tablet
As some of you may know, I study Interactive Multimedia Design at university and I'll be starting placement at the beginning of August with a web and graphic design company. So, I thought I'd buy myself a graphics tablet to make life a little easier for myself. I've been familiarising myself with this all month and I love it.
Orange Is The New Black
I feel as if this is going to be in everyone's favourites this month, as it's just an incredible show with an incredible cast. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I think season 2 was better than season 3, just due to the fact that there's so many unanswered questions, but I still loved it all the same. Also, can we just discuss how gorgeous Ruby Rose is? Such a babe!
Walk The Moon
This month I've been loving a little band called 'Walk The Moon', an American indie rock band that remind me so much of Two Door Cinema Club. Their most recent album 'Talking Is Hard' is filled with so many catchy little tunes that will make the perfect Summer playlist. 'Shut Up And Dance' has been stuck in my head all month, I've even learnt how to play it on my ukulele.
