July has been full of working, holiday planning, and holiday shopping - so I've managed to pick up a few favourites for you!
The first item I picked up was the Soap & Glory Orangeasm, which is a limited edition exfoliating body polish. I'm a massive fan of Soap & Glory's Sugar Crush Body Scrub and this body polish is gentler than that so could be used for everyday use if you want. The scent of Orangeasm is very refreshing; it contains Mandarin, Lemon, and Orange Peel Oils.
Next up, I bought myself the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation after trying a tester of it (which I used in my Pink Toned Makeup post). Although I love the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, it was becoming quite shiny on my nose throughout the day so I decided to try a longer-lasting Foundation. The Bobbi Brown Foundation contains SPF 15, which is perfect for the summer months as I won't need to worry about applying suncream underneath (unless it's really hot - which is unlikely!). Also, this Foundation matches my skin really well in the shade Warm Ivory and looks natural.
Another makeup product I got this month was the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in shade 02. This bronzer creates a natural tanned look with a slight shimmer and lasts all day without fading. I love that this bronzer comes with a mirror in the compact so it's easy to apply on the go. Terracotta will be my go-to bronzer this summer.
Finally, I picked up a couple of the NYX Lip Lingerie Lipsticks (because I don't own enough NYX Lipsticks already!). The shades I got were 03 Lace Detail, which is a pinky beige colour, and 09 Corset, which is a grey nude. I don't find these lipsticks as moisturising as the NYX Lip Creams, however, they're still comfortable on the lips and have a really nice matte finish. Also, these last for hours without budging so you don't have to worry about reapplying them.
