July 2014 Beauty Favourites

Seriously August! Where did you come from? Wasn't it just New Years Eve? Ok, if you say so, in that case I should probably run down my top beauty products of July, so lets get started:

Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray Review
Now I won't say too much as I have a review on it's way, but if you're pale or have dry skin, this tan will be for you. Stay Tuned!

Along with my new tanning routine I've also been spending a bit more time outside, which means I have a little natural colour coming through. So I've been relying on this gorgeous, moisturising lotion to boost hydration and reduce any "oops" induced sunburn. It's heavenly and smells of coconut goodness!

Lorac Pro Eyeshadow Palette
Natural, smoky, dramatic, everyday, this palette has you covered. I can't stop staring at these smooth, pigmented eyeshadows, they're stunning!

Bourjois 1 Second Volume Mascara*
Mascara is a very important component of my make up routine, who doesn't love dark fluttery lashes. This is the mascara I've used the most all month, why? Read my review.

 Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bare Pink
You know me, I'm not a lip gloss girl but I've been slicking this gloss on all month long. I don't know what's happening to me, I think it's because they aren't sticky. A+ Laura Mercier!

Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray
Warm weather means low maintenance hair, this spray makes my job so easy. I spritz this though my hair when it's wet, give it a scrunch then pop it into a plait before bed. When I wake up I have nice waves with a bit of texture!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Powder Foundation
All month I've been forgoing my Hourglass Powder in favor of this one from Tarte. I've been layering it over my BB cream or tinted moisturiser and it just gives my base extra staying power, especially in this heat. I do like to spritz a bit of Fix + over the top though just to take away any cakyness.

What have been your stand out products this month?
