July Favourites

July is not my most favourite month of the year but I made it though and came out the other side relatively unscathed.

I've loved my Rimmel Scandaleyes Show Off mascara this month and so did everyone else who left fantastic comments on my review here!  It fast became my go to mascara and I'm in the Love.

Clarins 3- Dot Liner. As I mentioned in my original post, this innovative little product got me all excited and delighted and incorporates one of my other favourite things of the month and that was meeting the gorgeous Claude Defresne!  Le sigh.

MAC Earthly Mineralize eyeshadow.  I've been so tired all month and trying to get out of bed in the morning has been a real effort.  So trying to put on a full face while in a permanent rush is difficult.  Half the time I've just been putting foundation, blush and mascara on, but on days where I have an extra couple of minutes, my Earthly Mineralize eyeshadow has saved the day, offering me a neutral eye with a bit of a sheen.  Loving this lots.

Nail art.  My poor nails are bitten to shreds at the moment, so I'm telling myself that I bit them to start from scratch and by the time they're at a decent length, they'll be strong and won't have split.  In the meantime, I commandeered Joanne's nails for a tutorial recently that went down a storm.

Let's hear it for the boys.  I had some menly scents that were sent for review and wanted to get a bloke's perspective, so asked my brother and Joanne's boyfriend to be the guinea pigs and give me their thoughts.  And so Lovely Manly Dangly Bits was born!  Click here to read their reviews!

Twitter.  I July I had some issues with eye make up remover that left me looking like a rabbit from Watership Down.  It was not the look I was going for.  A quick cry for help on Twitter and within about ten minutes, I'd  so many suggestions for gentle eye make up removers to try.  So thanks to all the lovely ladies who helped a sister out!

I've found myself in a bit of a rut make up wise this month so am deciding to make a real effort to use what I have in August.  I've an exciting event coming up at the end of the month and want my skin in tip top condition!  Here's to August eh?!

    1. Thanks! Joanne had lots of lovely comments on them, one from a fella from her job who couldn't understand how she could put one polish on and have that design! Ah, blokes!

  2. Yes, I love the neon nails as well :) I also didn't know about the dot liner, it seems interresting!

    1. Thanks lady :) The dot liner is brilliant, Bourjois are bringing one out too, so keep an eye out!
