July Favourites

Aloha ladies!

Another month, another favourites! Ive not been really loving much this month, well i have but its the same old same old so only a few things this month, including a perfume too! 
♥ Illamasqua 'Promise' Cream Blush♥
Having looked back, I have showcased this blush in a favourites post around a year ago but it just goes to show how long it lasts and how much i still love it! This is the most amazing barbie pink cheek colour, i use the smallest amount with a MAC 109 contour brush and apply to the apples of by cheeks and buff in. It looks non greasy, is long lasting and the illamasqua cream blushes are my most favourite out of all the brands i have tried, i would highly recommend. This has had a lot of love the past month as it is so quick and easy to apply and goes with pretty much every make up look! Next on my list is either 'dixie' which is a gorgeous pink-coral or 'rude' which is a peach.
♥ MAC 'Pink Nouveau' Lipstick ♥
A lipstick i have been reaching quite frequently for this month, especially because i have been on quite a few nights out and have been perma-tanned (which is a rarity for me i must say! But i do think this looks lovely with tanned skin!) This is a gorgeous bright-but-quite-dark-pink which isnt too in your face, a fab lipstick for nights out!
♥ MAC 'By Candlelight' Mineralize Skinfinish ♥
I must admit, ever since i purchased this it has been quite neglected as were most of my MSFs however i have had quite a lot of use out of this recently as i think it makes the most gorgeous hightlight, and looks especially lovely paired with the Illamasqua cream blush. Leaves a nice subtle sheen which i have been using on days i highlight!
This is quite a new product to my make up collection and i blogged about it here. I have been reaching for it pretty much daily since i received it and do really believe that it is a palette that everyone should own, especially for the mere price of £4! The colours are pigmented and easily blendable, i really have enjoyed using this!
I blogged about the Ralph Lauren Romance perfume here and for the past few weeks i have shown it a lot of love that i have nearly run out! This is a lovely floral and very much girl scent which i love. Definitely has been my go to for the past month! 
♥ Swatches ♥
What are your favourite products of the past month?

  1. The By Candlelight looks lovely - I only have Stereo Rose which isfab as it isnt super glittery. How does this look on the face?

  2. I love 'By Candlelight', it looks gorgeous. I have been looking for a highlighter product which is really subtle but that will still add a nice touch to the face xoxo

  21. Illamasqua blushes are amazing, i wish I could afford to buy them all! xx

  22. Babes you seriously need to get Rude! I seriously could sell every one of my blushers apart from this because it's just that good! I bought Promise and I don't really like it? I have been using it but I don't think the colouring suits me, been thinking of selling it but undecided yet! xxx

  24. Great favorites this month!
    Was the By Candlelight MSF limited edition? If so, I'm bummed because that highlighter looks like the perfect mix of pink and gold, I hate when other highlights lean too much towards one of those colors.
    The Illamasqua blush is stunning as well, I've heard SO many great things about that brand, more specifically their blushes, and since you said they're not greasy it sounds like a perfect match for me and my oily skin!

  25. I have Illamasqua Promise - it's a beauty :) I've just bought Dixie, it's a lot more red-toned than it seemed online but I think it's easier to work with than Promise - less buffing and blending required. A word of warning - less is more! xx

  26. Oh my I must get myself the MUA pro Pallet :D

  27. I have the Heaven & Earth palette and love it also! I featured this in my monthly favourites as well. I think I need to be more strict on my choices cause I find it hard and end up picking like 8 products! lol.

    Whenever I see candlelight I want it but know it wont be cheap cause it was LE x
