So as we are finally in August now, I thought it would be appropriate to talk about all the beauty products I got in July. I was reluctant to buying makeup this month because at this moment in time I’m saving for a holiday and a house with my boyfriend next year. BUT, I just could not help myself. I made an exception with some things, whereas one was a very naughty with.
The first two products I got were from Makeup Revolution. They were so inexpensive so I decided to get the Ultra Blush Palette in Golden Sugar. It contains four blushes, two highlighters and two bronze shades ideal for contouring. I’m not going to lie, for £6 this palette is amazing. The colours are very pigmented and they look very flawless on the skin. I tend to use the matte bronze shade to contour and it blends really well on the skin. The blush and the highlight colours are so beautiful and really compliment the bronzed look wonderfully.
The next Revolution palette I bought was the Ultra Professional Eyeshadow Flawless Matte. This palette is £8 and ranges from cool shades to warm shades. I am a huge fan of matte eyeshadow because it is perfect to blend in the crease. These colours are also very pigmented and blend so well. Usually inexpensive eyeshadows aren’t great but this is a huge exception.
The next two products I got were from Mac Cosmetics. I have never had a lip pencil from there, so when I got my makeup done last month (separate blog post coming soon) I got the lip pencil and lipstick they used. The lip pencil shade is Whirl, a cult classic thanks to Kylie Jenner’s famous lip combo. The colour is so beautiful, and it is a shade you could wear under pretty much any colour for the lipstick to last all day.
The lipstick colour is Viva Glam II. Another beautiful brownish/nude shade. It is such a pretty colour and is so simple to pair with a smokey eye. I love the packaging too, as it is not just the simple silver and black packaging. It is red to promote the Viva Glam collection and I love it, so simplistic yet so elegant.
The next three products were from Superdrug. I have always wanted to try the Collection 2000 concealer, as it is raved about so much by Zoella – one of my favourite youtubers. I got the lightest shade to highlight under the eyes, on the forehead, down the nose and on the chin. Everyone looks a good highlight after all! The next two things I bought were two mascaras from Maxfactor. These were basically just back ups, Maxfactor are definitely one of my favourite brands for Mascara.
The next thing I bought was from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I decided after many months of contemplating getting the dipbrow promade I finally got it. I really don’t know why I didn’t get this earlier because it has made my brows amazing. I decided to get the shade chocolate because it worked best with my hair colour. You really don’t need to use a lot of the product because a little goes a long way due to it being a gel product.
The final product I purchased in July was a very VERY naughty one. I have wanted the Lorac Pro Mega eyeshadow palette for a while now. It contains 32 beautiful shades from matte to shimmer. Due to this being limited edition it was very expensive, but I would like to say it is worth it but I don’t really think the extortionate price is. Look on Amazon if you reallllly want to see how much it truly is. But overall, the product is great and I’m probably going to use it everyday.
So that’s my July haul, I hope you enjoyed the read!
Love always, Beth x
