July Favourites..

I missed out June as by the time I got round to doing it, it was very nearly August!!

This month's favourite's are..

Urban decay Book of Shadows VOL II - I have used this so much this past month, I've really been enjoying it again. And I've not only been sticking to the more neutral colours, I have been wearing the brighter colours. I'm sure the people on my Childminding course were a bit shocked to see me turn up with a heavy purple smokey eye!

Nars Orgasm - I know this features I lot in my Favourite's but I really do use it a lot. I have just hit pan on it this weekend, its a tiny little hole so you won't see it on the picture. I think I bought it last October, so I haven't even had it a year. At least its not limited edition.

MAC Studio Sculpt concealer - I bought this at the beginning of July after they didn't have the concealer I usually use - Select Coverup I think it was. And I really like it, I apply it with an Eco Tools concealer brush and then blend it with the No 7 contour and blending brush.

Models Own loose shadow in Mocha - this is more carried over from June. I wore this lots on my holiday and I really love it. It complimets by blue eyes and its just effortless to wear all over the lid with nothing else, and looks nice with smudgy black liner. See my review of this here

Illamasqua Jo'mina - I only recently wrote a review of this here. I've worn it lots this month and have lots of compliments!

Aussie Dual Personality Aussome Volume Mouse - I got this in my goody bag from the Aussome Volume party a couple of weeks ago and have used it most days. It gives my hair really nice volume and doesn't make it feel sticky.

Umberto Gianni Backcomb in a bottle - I've had a lot of nights out this month (which is very rare for me, I've had a years worth of nights out in one month!) and I've been using this to give me some more volume. I really like it and it does work! It can leave my hair feeling a bit sticky though.

That's it for this month! What were your July favourites?


  1. I was intrigued with the "backcomb in a bottle" when I saw it in my boots, a bit scared to try it though incase it is a total let down, would love to hear how it works and stuff xxx

  2. Great round-up, always nice to see a fellow blogger using up their makeup stash!

    How do u find studio sculpt compared to select cover up (the one I 'm currently using) ?


  3. I'll try and do a review of the Backcomb in a bottle Alice.

    Tina - its a lot creamier, so I don't think it would be good on really oily skin. The past 2 days my skin has been pretty oily and its not coping very well with sculpt x

  4. If you like NARS Orgasm, try MAC Springsheen, it's really similar and I ♥ it! xo

  5. Backcomb in a bottle sounds very interesting! x
