I can't believe July is over! This month has really flown by, and with that, I have many favorites to share with you. July was really a great month because I got to do some traveling, it was my birthday month and I spent a lot of time with friends and family. Many of my favorites this month are basic products I use and love every day, but never seem to mention in any of my posts. Some of these products, as I will mention, are my holy grail products that I use every single time I do my makeup.

Starting off with a new favorite, I've been loving the Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in 'Fairy Floss'. I've only been playing around with this for the past week or so, but it has become my go-to lipgloss. The formula feels so nice on the lips without a scent or feeling sticky. The shade 'Fairy Floss' is the perfect nude gloss that can be worn alone or finish off any lip color. I need to pick up some more shades!

The blush I've loved this month is the Too Faced Love Flush Long Lasting 16 Hour Blush in 'Baby Love'. First, hello! The packaging! Who doesn't love a heart compact? More than that, the shades 'Baby Love' is a beautiful pinky nude that I love using on more subtle makeup days. It's not extremely pigmented, but with a few dips into the product I can build up enough color to give my cheeks a beautiful flush. 

My holy, holy grail eyeshadow combo is the Wet N' Wild Eyeshadow Primer and MAC 'Painterly' Paint Pot. I have never found an amazing eyeshadow primer like the Wet N' Wild one, it is the perfect formula to keep my eyeshadows on all day without creasing. It has a very similar look and feel to the Urban Decay Primer potion but it's more sticky and much, much cheaper. I find that primer is not always enough, so I used the MAC Paint Pot to even out the coloring on my eyes and it keeps my eyeshadow on for much longer.

I've never mentioned this on my blog before, but the Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lashing Boosting Eyeliner is one of the best liquid eyeliners I have ever tried. It is extremely similar to the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, which is my holy grail. It's super black, a fine felt tip pen and it lasts all day. 

A primer I have been loving this month is the Maybelline Master Prime in 'Blur + Smooth 100'. I forgot how much I love this primer! It's a white lotion that really blurs my pores and makes my skin really soft, so it's a perfect base for my face makeup.

My last favorite this month is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. Many people love this, and I can understand why! I have oily skin, but I can get dry under my eyes. It really covers up all of my dark circles, without making it look cakey or too heavy. It's an amazing lightweight concealer that I think many people will love.

  10. I can't get colour pop in the UK and it's such a nightmare. I haven't tried any of these products but after reading I really want to try the too faced blush partly for the packaging but partly because I much prefer a sheer blush.
    Loved reading.
    Have a pretty day,

  11. I love the Too Faced Blush in Babylove as well! Such a lovely color. The Naked Concealer is the best I've tried so far - can't wait to try the new Tarte Shape Tape Concealer though.

    My July favorites are the Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting foundation, the Foreo Luna Go for sensitive skin and the Too Faced Better than sex mascara. Big love <3

  12. Baby Love is one of my favourite blushes, such a gorgeous shade (and packaging!). Can't go wrong with the UD concealer, it's amazing! x
