July Favourites-

 It's the beginning of August meaning July is over. This month has definitely gone fast but every month seems to fly by, The good thing about the months ending faster means Christmas is on it's way! So here's the products I've been loving in July-
For Skincare-

L'OREAL 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar- I bought this at the beginning of July as it was on offer, It had been called the dupe for Bioderma. I use this to take my make-up off with a cotton pad and it makes my skin feel refreshed and with the hot weather in the UK that's how you want your skin to feel.
L'OREAL Velvety-Soft Toner- I bought this around the same time as I bought the 3 in 1 product, I use this after I have washed my face with a cotton pad, I like how this makes my skin feel more soft after I have cleansed my face
Witch Oil control foaming face wash- I started to use this because since the hot weather started my skin has become more oily making it harder for my face to stay matte throughout the day so I thought by using this it might reduce the oil. I use this morning and night and have seen improvements with my skin and how oily it is.
Simple kind to skin replenishing rich moisturiser- I bought this as I felt I needed a less harsh moisturiser and I have always been a fan of Simples skincare range so I decided to try this. Every morning when I apply this it makes my skin feel soft but also makes it feel refreshed before I apply my makeup.
These products have made my skin improve massively.

Make-up bits-

Collection lasting perfection concealer in Fair- This concealer is everyone's favourite also one of mine. I wouldn't say it lasts 16 hours but its stays put for long enough, I got the colour fair as I am very pale and the colour is perfect for my skin tone. It covers blemishes and under eyes perfectly.
Bourjois bronzing powder (Chocolate bronzer) in 52- This bronzer is named the chocolate bronzer as it looks exactly like chocolate and has a vague scent of it. I bought this as I was looking for a matte bronzer to contour with, It does the job without applying too much making it build able.
Vivo baked blush in shade 4 Rouge shimmer- Vivo is a Tesco make- up brand, I bought this as the colours stood out together. The baked blush can act as a highlighter but it is a highlighter/ blush combine. I like how it doesn't apply too much again making it build able but it adds enough colour to add a hint of colour to your cheeks which is perfect for summer.
Rimmel Apocalips 400 Big bang- This is one of my favourite lip products that I have been using throughout July, The colour is a bit vibrant but I tone it down when I wear it. When applied it adds a shine onto your lips which makes the colour look even better. 
Nuxe Reve de Miel ultra nourishing lip balm- I used this throughout July even though the weather has been nice my lips have still been slightly cracked which is fixed by using this. The scent is one of the things I like about this product, I reviewed this product at the beginning of July which is when I started using this again.

Nail Polish-
Barry M nail paint 303 Berry Ice Cream- This has always been one of my favourite nail polishes from Barry M which is why I recently re-purchased it, The pastel purple colour is perfect for summer and it doesn't chip easy making it easier for you not having to apply it again and again.
MUA Nail paint Pistachio Ice Cream- I have recently been on the search for a pastel green colour as I had run out of my Barry M one, So I saw this in Super drug for £1 so I decided to pick it up, The colour is amazing for the price and with two coats its a lovely pastel green. I had this on for around a week and a half and it didn't chip at all. As it was only £1 I thought that was amazing value.
