Illamasqua Shadow in Stealth|got2b Tame&Shining Styling Oil|Soap&Glory Feel Good Factor|BarryM Gelly Nail Paint in Cotton|Rimmel Lasting Finish Liner in Spice.

July is over what!? I don’t think I have really stopped this month i’ve been filming on location quite a lot which has been great fun but again early mornings have meant not too much make-up. However I have been loving the Illamasqua Eye Shadow in Stealth which is a gorgeous matte cream colour which really helps to brighten up your eyes especially if it’s layered over a cream base. I have also been in love with the Rimmel Lip Liner in Spice which is a 90’s brown/red nude and very flattering with my pale skin.

I’m still not over my white nail obsession and turned to BarryM for a new one and thought I would try out the Gelly Hi-Shine formula. The lasting power of this with a top coat is insane and it’s super opaque after just one coat! My hair has been very much abused recently and so i’ve been trying to look after it with some styling oil mainly to get rid of the dryness and to tame the flyways, got2b Styling Oil is a really nice product which isn’t too greasy but still gets the job done and really smooths and provides shine to my hair. Lastly in July I was loving Soap&Glory Feel Good Factor which is a facial suncream with an SPF 25 which is amazing, it doesn’t leave your face feeling greasy and protects it from the sun.

Highstreet Gems|Top 3 Brands

P1230052

There are so many high street brands out there and they all have plenty to offer but it’s rare to find a brand that I would buy a full face from. Here are my top three high street brands.

Rimmel

Rimmel was the first ever make-up brand I bought from and despite the slightly cheap packaging the products themselves are all fantastic. Very affordable; all products are under £10 and all of a good quality. As a pale girl I love the amazing range of foundation shades and different formulas. Their lipsticks are phenomenal and again come in a large range of formulas and colours something for everyone.

I recommend – Lasting Finish Foundation|Moisture Renew Lipsticks|Stay Matte Powder.

Maybelline

Maybelline is a more recent discovery but I love them mainly for their eye and lip products but their face products are also fantastic. Again a large range of formulas and colours within all there products all packed with amazing pigmentation. A little more expesinve than Rimmel when it comes to bases but still some amazing bargains – Colour Tattoos at under a fiver i’m looking at you.

I recommend – The Eraser Eye Concealer|24 Hour Colour Tattoo|Colour Drama Lip Crayon.

Soap&Glory

It’s no secret that i love this company not only for their adorable packaging but also for their amazing products. It’s not the biggest make-up range out there on the market but it has some real gems and for such a small brand they cater for a large range of skin tones. I love mainly there lip and cheek products.

I recommend – Kick Ass Concealer|Fabulipstick|Glow Job.

Sugar Crush Spritz|Review

P1220923P1220922

Soap&Glory Sugar Crush Body Spray£4.00

I love the Sugar Crush body wash so when I saw they had released a body spray in the same scent I had to buy it, because who doesn’t want to smell like a key lime pie. Sugar Crush is a combination of Vanilla Musk, Sweet Lime and Ginger and I am currently spraying it every single day.

I love the new travel size bottles because it fits perfectly into my handbag for on the go spritzing. Also the packaging although cute is a hardy plastic so no spillage or breakage on the go.

Soap&Glory have brought out five travel size body sprays in their five signature scents so there is something for everyone and at only £4.00 you can hardly say no!
