I’m so pleased to have rediscovered this especially as the weather is so hot and my makeup just slides right off my face without a primer. This one is really lightweight and leaves your skin feeling and looking smooth, my foundation always applies really well over the top and it helps keep everything looking even and in place all day long. I also find it quite hydrating and makes my skin look fresh throughout the day.
I really like cream shadows and despite the annoying packaging on this (it’s so hard to even get your finger in to get the product out) I just love the colour and finish of this Dew Pot, it’s like a dusky lilac shade with a slightly metallic finish. Once blended on to the lid it’s not so metallic but it catches the light and looks so pretty. The formula is creamy and it has serious staying power.
B. Longer Mascara*
This hasn’t been in my stash that long but I have far too many mascaras on the go right now that I keep overlooking this one despite it being a really nice everyday mascara. B. is a brand which is exclusive to Superdrug and they have a really nice selection of makeup and skincare. This mascara is a tubing mascara and that means it uses flexible polymers that wrap right around each individual lash to make your lashes look fluttery and long. Click to read my full review – B.

These gel liners from Essence are amazing, I have raved about them on my blog before. They’re creamy, pigmented and waterproof, so they have very good staying power. I normally reach for the black one but have rediscovered the brown one and like how it looks softer and more natural. Great for a daytime look. So affordable too, you have to try them for yourself. Essence is sold in selected Superdrugs & in Wilko stores.
If I’m honest this has almost had its day, I will use it in July then bin it. It’s a very good concealer for blemishes and redness. It has good staying power & I will buy another one at the end of the month.
This was in my Top Essence Buys a while ago & its such a handy quad to have, the shades are neutral and easy to wear. No fuss makeup which is right up my street. I will get a lot of use out of this in July. I tend not to wear too much makeup day to day but often it’s nice to do a simple eye look so I will be using this.
I have 5 of these and they’re all pretty so I try & rotate them to use a different one each month. July’s shade is Cherry Bomb. These are hydrating on the lips and also give you a really nice wash of colour. Click here to see my Sweet Sheen Review with swatches. This will be great in my handbag over the next month, I like a lightweight lip product when its warm & you can apply these without needing a mirror!
What a pretty colour this is & just gorgeous to give the cheeks a pinch of colour in the summer. It’s a pretty sweet pink shade and has no glitter/shimmer at all which I like, especially for wearing during the day. The pigmentation is so good, a light hand is needed for sure.
L’Oreal Super Blendable True Match Powder in Rose Beige
I haven’t used this too much but it seems to be a nice finely milled powder & its good for sweeping over the areas prone to getting oily throughout the day. It also makes the skin look smoother and gives a hint of colour. I will let you know how I get on with it at the end of the month
PUR Minerals Bare It All Contour / Highlighter Duo
I have been using my Soap & Glory Solar Powder to death so its about time I switched it up & used something else. This is a great duo & although the colour pay off isn’t as good as the S&G one thats not always a bad thing. This gives more of a subtle finish so looking forward to using that more this month.
