Oh boy, I don’t even remember when the last time I did one of those was… It’s been a good while; let’s just say that. Now that I have finally gained my blogging mojo back though, I decided it’s time I did the most ‘bloggery’ thing of all and talk about my monthly faves. July did treat me rather well beauty wise, I must admit, so here is a little roundup of everything I’ve been loving for the past four weeks…
I think it’s safe to say that I found a new favorite skincare combo. I’ve been using the Lancôme Advanced Genifique Concentrate* (here) in conjunction with the Dr. Jart+ Water-Sure Gel* (here) every morning during the month and I absolutely love the results! I can’t quite comment on the anti-ageing benefits of the Lancôme Concentrate just yet but what I can tell you is that it brightens up my complexion beautifully and evens out my skin tone. It feels hydrating on the skin and makes it really soft and smooth. The Dr. Jart+ moisturizer is just the perfect follow-up product and I love how lightweight it feels on the skin. It hydrates and sinks in fast, which definitely makes it the perfect product to use under foundation. The gel also manages to plump up my skin and I love how radiant and healthy it looks as well. Morning skincare duo winner right here!
I’ve been really into luminous skin this past few weeks and highlighted cheekbones have been greatly favored. I may have even given the ‘strobing’ technique a whirl but *shhhh*, don’t tell my bronzers! To help me achieve the perfectly highlighted skin I have had my trusty Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette (here / review) by my side. This stunning complexion cheerleading quad is every highlight fan’s dream. The quality is absolutely incredible; the shades are stunning and not too glitter-laden, which is exactly what I’m after. See them all in action here. For blush, this will come as no surprise if you’ve been reading my blog for a while but Milani Luminouso (here / review) has been the one in July. I’m sure you know how that goes… Beautiful ‘suite-everyone’ peach with golden shimmer running through, which warms things up and adds all the right amounts of glow to the skin. The formula is one of the best I’ve tried and it not only blends like a dream but also stays put for ages. It’s an oldie but a total goodie and if you can get your mitts on it do it asap!
Not being the biggest eye shadow wearer out there, I often just fancy sweeping some color all over my lid, blend in and head out the door. And when it comes to single shadows you can’t really beat Too Faced in my opinion and Copper Peony (here) is the living proof. It’s hands down the most beautiful copper shadow I own and the metallic finish is just to die for and ideal for this time of year. It warms up my complexion, enhances my tan and makes my green eyes pop in an instant. The creamy, easy-to-blend formula is a dream to apply and the shadow hangs around for some good eight hours with no creasing in sight. LOVE! Review and swatches are coming your way very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
Have you tried any of these products before? Which products have you been obsessing over for the past month?
Lots of love,
