July Favourites

Before the month is over, what have I been loving this month?

*Eccentricity mineralize e/s quad by MAC

From the CC collection. I realised I haven't even done my CC haul and it was ages ago now! I choose this quad, which is described as "Shade description: Rich gold, Light violet, Deep plum, Rich bronze" on MAC(sorry no cam cable so no photos) as the colours all go well with my brown eyes.
I've been house sitting for various people for 2 weeks now, so I threw this in my make up bag whilst packing. It's the only e/s I brought with me, and I'm glad. All the colours compliment each well and really blendable. The colour pay off is really good as well, other people seem to have a problem with this with some of the other quads.

*Studio moisture fix by MAC

I love this moisturiser. It's really light, sinks in the skin well and leaves a great base for foundation. I put this on before make up in the morning and leave the heavier foundations for bed time. I got it on a whim at CCO for like £8(RRP £19!) and it's the best moisturiser I've used for under make up

*Cleanse & Clear eye make up remover by No7

I have been testing eye make up removers for months now and this one has easily been the best. It's slightly oily so it doesn't rub our eyes as you take off the make up, and stops black panda eyes in the morning(which has been my problem since I was about 13). I'm waiting to try it on the ultimate test- removing DiorShow Blackout Waterproof mascara, and then I'll do an eye maker remover post

*Buzz Tinted lip glass by MAC.


I haven't really seen anyone mention the lipglasses from Naked Honey(which I think got completely overshadowed by CC!) but I love this colour. Again, I haven't got any photos-MAC describes it as "Dark copper brown with multi-dimensional pearl" but I would say it's got more of a brick red colouration to it. It's completely not a colour I'd usually wear(nudes and pinks) but it looks great on and I've had loads of compliments whilst wearing it.

*Maybelline Dream Sun Glow Bronzing booster

I've used this for a few years now and still keep on buying. It's a liquid bronzer that you can use on it's own or add to foundation. I use it to darken my foundation when I've tanned and it means I can match my skin tone more naturally. It's just fantastic. I use a small travel container with it pre mixed with my foundation so it's easy to take with me in my make up bag. I've finished my bottle so I'll be buying some more when my shopping ban is up on Friday.

That's just a few things I've been reaching for more than others this months, what have your favourites been in July?
XOXO

@tabitha- Aren't they? I wore the gold with the deep purple today for a change, which looked really pretty.

I have Mineralize eyshadow in Family Silver and I really can;t get on with it the darker silver has gold veining through it and when applied it looks more brown then anything else and it's really not very pigmented.

Thanks for following too! :D Replied to your comment on my blog and I just posted a picture from earlier with my Lash Activator. :D
