July Favourites (:

JULY!JULY!JULY! This year has gone so fast! When I look back, I honestly can't even remember what I've done, time really does fly. Anyways, instead of ramming on, ill just jump straight into my July Favourites!

Beauty Blender.

RRP: $24.95

I haven't always been a huge fan of using sponges to apply my foundation cause it leaves my face very patchy, sticky and wears off. Seeing so many reviews on the beauty blender, that I honestly wanted to try it myself. To this day, I don't think I can live without it! Gives a great dewy finish without foundation lines, perfect coverage, gets right into the corners of your eyes. So easy to apply and I love how the sponge makes the foundation feel on my skin. Using this sponge has saved a lot of my foundation product, I just need one pump and it covers my whole face.

Toni & Guy Prep Protection Spray.

150.0ML - FULL SIZE.
RRP: $15.99

Before using, beware that there is a lock on this spray. I took me a month to notice that, I kept unscrewing the lid, just to use it. It's super easy to direct onto the hair, I spray on each section on my hair, while I straighten. This product has a sweet, honeydew smell to it, which wasn't the best at first, but I have gotten used to it now. It's very light / watery, doesn't have any stickiness or bulkiness while applying. I'm very happy with the results and how well it performs. Helps my hair look sleek, shiny and smooth. It actually does its job!

Essence Stay All Day 16HR Concealer.

8.0g - FULL SIZE
RRP: $4.25

For a very cheap concealer, it does amazing! I tend to use this only on days that I want a full coverage under my eyes, due to dark circles, bags or just tried eyes. The texture is very thick and creamy, so applying just a little would do the trick. I apply in dots, then use my beauty blender to dab into my skin. A few people use this before their foundation, but I've found that I get more results by applying it after my foundation & powder. So the look is still fresh. It smooths on nicely and does live up to 16HR, even more. Definitely lightens up my eyes, makes them look bigger and more awake.

Maybelline Define-A-Brow

RRP: $6.95

love!love!love! I never cared much about my brows, don't get me wrong, I did shape them / wax. But it was the whole fill them, add colour, make them look longer etc. I was always like that's stupid, until I received this as a freebie item from a makeup site. At first I wasn't to sure about how they looked, didn't know how much to fill in, how dark I should apply it. It was almost so hard for me. Haha. But after awhile, I got the hang of it. Small lines, darker in the arch, longer on the ends. It ended up looking clean, neat and gorgeous looking. I loved how it looked natural. It was super easy to apply and I loved the comb at the end to help define and shape your brow. Most importantly it is very long lasting and doesn't smudge which is perfect for me because I work in retail, with long shifts.I need something that won't come off when I sweat, plus it is very affordable comparing to other brands. 

So that's it for my July Faves, hope you all enjoy August! Can't wait to discover more products through out this month. Xox
