Star Products of the Month • July



Time for another round up of what I have been loving during the month of July! It has been difficult to select this month as I am currently trying out lots of lovely new purchases from my recent USA haul so I wanted to give myself more time using them so I could report back to you in more depth, but there have been some instant stand out products that I have simply fallen in love with and not been able to put down. 


MAC Lipsticks, Runway Hit, Tropic Tonic, Tats
1. MAC Lipsticks - Runway Hit, Tropic Tonic, Tats (matte) link!
If you follow my blog then you shall have already seen my blog posts about these stunning new lipstick collections from MAC. I picked these up whilst I was in the U.S. and they have been all that I have been wearing on my lips throughout July as the colours are just perfect for summer. If you want to know more about them then go and check out my blog posts, Giambattista Valli Collection and The Matte LipI love MAC lipsticks and cannot get enough of them this month, or any other month quite frankly. 


The Beauty Blender, Original
2. The Beauty Blender link!
I don't think I could ever live without this in my life! This magic sponge is a true staple in my everyday makeup routine and can be found in near enough every makeup artist's kit. If you don't know what it is, the beauty blender is like no other make up sponge out there and gives the most blended, airbrushed finish to your make up that is humanly possible. You use this damp and unlike other sponges it's made from a very special material that does not absorb water or your product. The exclusive material causes makeup to sit on top for smoother blending results so if you find you have streaks on your face from using a makeup brush or an imposter sponge, then try the beauty blender as I guarantee you wont look back. You can use this to blend anything into your skin but I use mine mostly for blending in concealer under my eyes as this blends perfectly without causing it to sit in any fine lines. My advice is simply, "if you don't have one, then get one!". It's the best tool to make up like a make-up artist without any effort. 


Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra Rich
3. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, Ulta Rich link!
Again you may have seen that I already mentioned this briefly in my USA haul blog post as during my trip to Vegas, this little gem saved my skin. After suffering with severe dehydration from flying and entering a desert climate, I needed some 'serious' hydration as I felt like a shrivelled up prune. Already being familiar with the brand Elemis, I was recommended this Pro-Collagen Marine Cream to use as a mask as well as a moisturiser that can be used day/night. Even though this is ultra rich, the texture is a cream gel that's super lightweight but when you apply it to the skin you really can feel just how rich in hydration it is. It smells incredible, it feels amazing, absorbs into the skin quickly, is multi-purpose and seriously anti-ageing. It is a little pricey but its works, so you pay for what you get. I definitely feel this shall be a new staple in my skincare routine as I am totally addicted!


Kat von D Trooper Tatoo Liner

4. Kat Von D Tatoo Liner in Trooper link!
The moment I tried this liner, I was in love and it has to be one of if not 'the' best liquid liner that I have ever used. Strong statement hey?! That's how good it is. If you struggle with liquid liner and struggle with doing flicks then this makes the task in hand easy. It may look like other felt tip liners but the formulation is so long lasting being waterproof and very black, simply as the name suggests with the word 'tattoo'. The felt pointed tip gives you real precision which helps getting the thickness of your line just right. I have already been googling to see where I can buy this anywhere else other than in the USA as I really need back ups! If you can get you hands on one then most definitely do as its the ultimate liquid liner with liner addicts such as myself.


Palmers Cocoa Butter Rapid Moisture
5. Palmers Cocoa Butter Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion link!
I am a big fan of spray-on body lotions like the Vaseline Intensive Care ones that I have often raved about so when I spotted this one from Palmers I thought lets give it a go. I feel the brand Palmers is either one that you love or hate as anyone who has tried it knows how intense the smell of cocoa is and with any of the products, you will smell like a walking chocolate bar. I personally don't mind it which is just as well because this spray lotion smells intense. The lotion itself is gorgeous, really hydrating with cocoa and shea butter, fast absorbing and not at all greasy, just like it promises. It's just so easy to use and you can get dressed straight away which is something I always want from a day time body moisturiser.

The nozzle gives a continuous spray action and sprays out a very fine mist in a fan shape which covers a big area all in one easy spray! 

Palmers Cocoa Butter Rapid Moisture
If you hate the smell of cocoa or chocolate then best avoid this one! I on the other hand love this stuff and shall be stocking up during my next trip to the UK!
