July Favourites

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice day. Today I've got my July Favourites for you, I've got a few things I've been loving this month.
Beauty Favourites
Starting off with the Sunkissed Self Tanner, I hardly ever use self tan even though I am extremely pale but when I was going out for my friends birthday I wanted to be darker and thought it would look better with my dress, so I used this Sunkissed Self Tan and it was really good, it didn't come out too dark and stuck to my skin quite well and lasted.

Next is this Magic Cool this isn't beauty related but when we have had these hotter days this has been a life saver, you can spray it on your face and body but I mostly use it on my face and it just cools you down and it doesn't mess up your makeup it just refreshens it.

The MUA Matte palette has been something that I've been using more recently, I use the first shade on the second row for filling in my eyebrows and also using other shades for my crease or the lighter shades as highlight under the brow bone. The shadows are really pigmented and last quite well. The other eyeshadow is this mono eyeshadow by wet n wild, it doesn't have a name but it's a pinky champagne shade with light shimmer. I've been wearing this on the lid and a brown in the crease and just wearing it as a simple look but it's such a gorgeous shade that is pigmented and long lasting.

I did a full review here on the Rimmel London Scandal Eyes in Golden Bronze but since buying it, I've worn it quite a bit, I just apply it and blend with my finger and apply eyeshadow over the top. It's very pigmented and doesn't budge all day.

The Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Sugar Apple, I did a review and nail look recently here, it's such a gorgeous mint bluey green shade that is nice for Summer, it lasts really well and doesn't chip straight away and keeps your nails strong and in good condition.

Next up is the MAC blush in Cream Soda this was from the Archie's Girls collection, this is a peachy blush with glitter in it but when you apply it to your cheeks it isn't noticeable. It just gives your cheeks a nice healthy glow and is perfect for Summer. 

Lastly is the Bourjois Color Boost in Peach on the Beach and Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart. The Bourjois Color Boost in Peach on the Beach is a peachy pink shade that is just gorgeous and I love wearing in the Summer, It's quite pigmented and glossy. Next up is the Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart is a bright pink shade that is great for Summer, the lip butters are pigmented, moisturising and glossy but they don't last that long on the lips.

Non-Beauty Favourites
Music- MKTO-Classic is such a catchy song that I have loved listening to and Ed Sheeran's Album I've been loving listening to more this month.

TV Shows- Finding Carter is a new show about a teenager called Carter and she's grown up with a women who she thinks is her mother but it turns out she kidnapped her and then Carter goes to live with her biological family, it's been really interesting to watch. Geordie Shore came back on this month, it's a controversial show but I find it fun to watch.

Books- Never Forget is a free book you can get on your kindle, its a romance of a girl called Lexy who goes to her Grandma's for the Summer and falls in love but she also looses her Grandma and you see a change in her, it's a great book. Lost and Found is another book that was free that I loved reading, this is a book about a teenager that has graduated high school but she's troubled and her mother will only pay for her art school if she works on a ranch and she falls in love with a cowboy and becomes a different person.
