JULY FAVOURITES

Here are my current favourite products for this summer month:

Shimmer Strips Custom Nude Palette for face & eyes by Physicians Formula
Sephora's smoothing primer
Victoria's Secret Amber Romance Eau De Toilette Perfume
Tan Liquid Glow by Seventeen  
The NXY dewy finish setting spray 
Victoria's Secret Coconut Passion body spray 



Here is a closer look at the Shimmer Strips Custom Nude Palette for face & eyes by Physicians Formula. I am loving this product for summer as it is a highlighter for your face and also works as eyeshadow! You can use it to highlight your cheekbones with the more blushy tones or to contour with the darker more bronzy tones. I am currently obsessed with dewy looking makeup and this leaves my face with a healthy natural glow.


This next product, the smoothing primer by Sephora, is a perfect dupe for the Smashbox photo finish primer (which I think is quite over priced). This product is cheaper AND it comes in a glass bottle, I love it! 


This Victoria's Secret Amber Romance Eau De Toilette Perfume has got to be the most summery scent I have ever purchased. I picked this up at Glasgow airport before my flight to Cyprus and I have been in love with it ever since. I am not kidding this is my FAVOURITE scent on earth. In terms of describing it.. I'm really not sure how to.. I wouldn't say it is a floral scent but it is definitely warming and lasts a long time.


At £4.99 this product was definitely a bargain. It is a liquid shimmering bronzer by Seventeen. It is great to use as a highlighter or to mix with foundation to create a more glowy look. It isn't very dark and blends out really easily. If you want a darker finish you just need to add a bit more. 


This Nyx dewy finish setting spray is such a lifesaver for me during summer. As I said before I am obsessed with dewy makeup at the moment and no matter what makeup you apply to your skin, whether it's matte or not, this spray will make you look dewy. I have heard and read about many setting sprays that are meant to give you this look however just dry up and vanish almost instantly so I am really happy that I have found one that actually works and stays put!


Once I had returned from Cyprus I had this new obsession with tropical scents even despite the rainy Scottish weather. As most of my sprays were floral and I didn't want to rely on just my new Amber Romance perfume I thought I would go for this Victoria's Secret Coconut Passion body spray. I love these sprays as I find that they last quite long and there is a lot of product in them so I don't feel as guilty about using it often. Just as the bottle says, it smells exactly like vanilla and coconut.


That concludes my favourites for this month, let me know what you think and what yours are! I also hope you're having a lovely summery day,

Lots of summery love,

  4. You've made me want to smell the Victoria's Secret scents so much! I wonder do Nyx do an oil control spray too because I think I need that more than a dewy one!

    1. They have a matte one but apparently it isn't very good, I think the urban decay one would be perfect for you though :) x
