Can you believe we are in August already? This can only mean that I go on holiday in less than two weeks, or that results day is in just under three weeks.. Either way July has been a month of a mini spending ban and blog post planning as well as a few beauty faves..
TOPSHOP NOTEBOOK (AW13/14)
I received this little notebook last September and it's come in handy here and there since then but recently I've been using it to generate ideas, manage and plan my blogposts. I feel very Anna (from VDM) and Lily (from Lily Pebbles) when using this, ha.
EBAY BLENDING BRUSH #224
I've had this for months now, I believe I bought it from the seller 'sinedy' who sells a bunch of different brushes (and everything else you could ever think of). I've been using this not only for eyeshadow, but also for contouring. This brush blends the colour out really nicely, whilst keeping it precise.
GARNIER ULTIMATE BLENDS THE SLEEK PERFECTOR OIL*
This stuff is amazing. Seriously. I slather this onto my hair before blow drying and afterwards my hair feels so much smoother and soft! Considering my hair is knackered (split ends, heat damage - don't worry I'm getting a hell of a lot cut off it soon) it works wonders keeping frizz at bay, whilst maintaining non greasy. I've tried the shampoo and conditioner in the same range, but I can't say they made a huge difference to my hair.
MAYBELLINE EYESHADOW QUAD
I picked up this little quad from Tesco, for a mere 99p in the Clearance section. I'm not sure why it was there as there seems to be no damage to the packaging, nor to the actual product. I've really been liking the green and coppery shade. The only downside to this quad is the lack of matte shades- all shimmer on the eye is a bit of a no-go for me! I'm planning a full review post (complete with swatches) on this little baby. My mum bought this for me in our weekly shop so don't worry, I didn't break the spending ban.
CLINIQUE CHUBBY STICK IN WOPPING WATERMELON
Everyone loves a good freebie right? My sister picked me up the Glamour magazine with this Chubby Stick in and I can't thank her enough! This has been constantly in my handbag ready to be whipped on any moment. Although I do really like the whole concept of these Chubby Sticks, I don't think I'll be dishing out £18 for a full sized one. Ill probably hit the Revlon counter instead for some of their balm stain majigs.
So, that's a wrap. What products have you been loving this month?
