The list for what i wanted to include in this months favourites was so long but i’ve managed to reign myself in (i’ve already started the list for July faves) so let’s just crack on!
The Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (x)
This has been a staple in my make-up bag for years but i was browsing the other week and i hesitated picking more up. I thought ‘i’m going to try a few other ones just incase there is any better ones out there’. Of the high street ones i tried, there isn’t. I’m convinced most high street concealers are just foundation in the tube. This has such good coverage without being heavy on your skin and it lasts all day.
I’m sorry, lasting perfection concealer- i’ll never doubt you again.
Pair this up with the Real Techniques Setting Brush and you’ll never need to spend more than £4.19 on concealer ever again.
PS… Brow Gel
This quickly found it’s way to my basket when i was in Primark. We’re a generation that is daft for our eye-brows so new products are always exciting. I got this in the shade dark brown which is the darkest colour they had (they also had it in clear). The applicator is really delicate and neat, the pigment is strong and it lasts all day. I know people rave about the Maybelline Brow Drama but i personally don’t love it, i feel like it’s a bit messy. I genuinely prefer this one.
AND it was only £1…. i mean
PS… Fake Nails
While we’re on the subject of Primark, every time i’m in store i always pick up the fake nails. You can choose hundreds of colours and styles & finishes. I’m really lazy with my nails and i pick at them when i get nervous or anxious so they never get a chance to grow very long. For the £1 that you spend you get 36 nails (great because you can get at least two sets out of them) and the glue. The glue is just as strong as more expensive glues. I like these because i can take them off at the end of the night – i have a really irrational fear that i’m going to swallow them in my sleep- and don’t feel like it’s a waste of money.
MUA Lipstick (x)
Often when i shop online at Superdrug i add a few of these to my basket. They’re cheap so i don’t really mind if the colour isn’t perfect because i can just mix them with other shades. This one in particular is shade:11 it’s creamy, light and is like a red/nude colour. It looks darker on my hand than it does on my lips. It’s perfect for everyday or pair it with a gloss for night time. A fantastic beauty find for only £1.
TRESemme Expert Selection Make Waves Hairspray (x)
If i go to curl my hair, i’ll curl it with my wand pretty tight. Then i brush it out with a Tangle Teezer or my Wet Brush so the curls are loose and wavy. However i found this made the curls fall much quicker. Normally, i don’t use hairspray because i don’t like it (and apparently it attracts wasps so do you really need a reason not to use it?) but i make an exception for this. In theory, it makes your hair wavy, i’m not sure how but it does. This gives my curls a bit more shape while still giving me the look i’m going for. It’s light and brushes out relatively easy. It’s also good if you’ve done your hair the day before and don’t have the time/ the will to do anything with it the next day. Just brush it through and then spray this. You don’t need a lot which is why i think i like it because you don’t really notice you’re wearing hairspray.
ASOS Barbie Queen Of Everything Ankle Socks (x)
I loved these so much when i seen them i couldn’t content myself until i’d ordered them. I wasn’t needing anything so i ordered enough to get free delivery, then returned the stuff i didn’t want (check out my post on getting the most out of online shopping for more on this).
They have Barbie’s face on the toes then say “Queen of Everything” just above the ankle. They’re just so cute and they’re really comfy and good quality. I think i love them as much as you can love a pair of socks.
Zoella Beauty Sweet Inspirations Body Mist (x)
If you read my review of the Sweet Inspirations product line you’ll know how worried i was i wasn’t going to like it. Over a few days it grew on me and before i knew it, i’d used the whole bottle. I’ve never went through a bottle so fast- i’ve already ordered another one. It’s fresh, summery and has a really addicting smell to it. So many people have complimented me on it whenever i wear it. I love it so much, the bottle is so cute and it’s only £8 which makes it perfect for an every day scent.
