Monthly Favourites: July

Monthly Favourites: July

Hello my Stylish Bows, and welcome to my first ever monthly favourites post. I have seen so many people do these on blogs and YouTube that I decided to give it a whirl. So it is the start of August, and the month of July has seen some great beauty products. 
Sorry about the bad lighting.
So the first two things I have been loving this month are the Balmi cube lip balm's in Strawberry(left) and Raspberry(right). It took me forever to try these little babies, but I finally got the chance when I saw them for half price in Boots. They are normally £4.99 each, but I was able to pick them up for £2.99 each (Bargain!!!). They are definitely the softest, smoothest and best smelling lip balm I have used in quite a while. I just wish I had tried them sooner, but I will saver every moment with them to make up for it. Personally I prefer the strawberry one, just because I found that the raspberry one smells like a slightly muted version of the strawberry. Have you tried these flavours? What do you think?

This product I bought at the beginning of September and have mainly used on days that I only need light coverage. But as July saw a heatwave unusual for the UK, I started wearing lighter make-up and less eye products. I don't think I could have survived without this little baby. It gives a light coverage, but helps battle redness. I have found my skin looking a lot clearer after wearing the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream, and it feels as if I am wearing nothing at all (make-up wise, I promise I wear clothes. I swear). I use the shade light, and it is priced at about £7.99.

I am totally in love with Revlon's Colour burst Lip Butter's. This July I have been using the shade Peach Parfait, it's a gorgeous natural looking pink colour. This product is not only a lovely colour, but is very glittery. It has a soft shimmer which is pretty, but does not look over the top. 

I have used this almost everyday, and I have a sneaky suspicion it will appear in future monthly favourites.
The packaging also makes this product great, it looks very high end and is a steal at only £7.99.

Collection's Lasting Perfection concealer is one of my all time favourite concealer's. A few months ago I ran out, and decided to try some other products for a while, but this month I have come back to this with open arms ready to continue our love affair. I am in love with this concealer, as it has everything I look for. It has a thick formula which covers all blemishes, but feels light on the skin. It claims to last for 16 hours and I can honestly say that it does last a long time, but after about 4 hours I usually need to re-apply in some areas. Over all this is a great quality product, and for only £4.19 it definitely deserves a place in my monthly favs.

Last but certainly not least, is Maybelline's Mega Plush Volum' Express mascara. I have used this every day of July, and am still using it today. This mascara gives a gorgeous fluttery look, which is my favourite lash look by far. What I love most about this product is that it gives you the ability to have a light soft lash with just a few gentle strokes, or a more voluminous, full and expressive look with a few full, thick strokes. The wand on this mascara has a moveable head which bends to catch every lash, as you apply it. Yet again Maybelline has produced an amazing product and the price tag is equally amazing ( about £7.99 I think).

Well, that's it from me today. I am sorry this post was so long but I just had so much to say. I would also like to apologise that all beauty related posts I have done on this blog so far have all been drug-store/ high-street products, I promise to start including more high end products soon. I guess I have just been a bit drug-store/ high-street obsessed lately. Who hasn't, right?
