July Favourites 2018

Well July has been a hot one hasn’t it? I must admit I have been loving the hot weather, but I do wish it was cooler at night. Other than that, July has been great, as I feel like I’ve finally turned a corner and got myself motivated. It’s only taken seven months, but we’re finally here. Better late than never right? Here is a list of things I have been loving in July!

Too Faced | Born This Way Foundation

This is my new all time favourite foundation. I know it’s hot, but I still need a good coverage foundation. Mainly because I go really red when I’m hot, so the foundation covers it up. This one feels lightweight, and leaves the skin glowing. I have the shade Snow which is very light with pinkish undertones. It’s supposed to be pink, but I still think it looks a little yellow. I’d say the coverage is medium, but it can be built up without looking cakey.

Charlotte Tilbury | Hollywood Flawless Filter

This is amazing for giving the skin that lit within look, rather than shiny. It also gives the skin a flawless finish, which is always a bonus. I apply this in dots under my foundation, as I find this works better than applying it over the top. I do think it’s expensive for what it is, but it seems to be lasting well.

Soap and Glory | Solar Bronzer

I feel like I’m a few years too late with this, as it used to be hyped up a few years ago. This is a recent addition to my makeup bag and I have been loving it. The two shades are great on their own, but also look great when mixed together. I like to use the lighter shade as contour, and then the darker shade to bronze. This also comes with a mirror, which is always a bonus.

Estée Lauder | Bronze Goddess Perfume

Of course this perfume comes out when the sun does. This is basically Summer in a bottle, so it’s been the only thing I’ve been reaching for in this heat wave. There are notes of: Coconut, Vanilla, Amber and Bergamot, which creates this dreamy summery scent, that is perfect for the evening.

Doll Beauty | Like a Diamond Highlighter

I have a full review on this, so I won’t go in to too much detail here. Plus you can see what it looked like before it was used, which is a lot prettier than it is now. This is pretty much the only highlighter I have been reaching for lately. It leaves a gorgeous sheen, but builds up really easily to an intense glow. Shade wise it’s a light champagne with small flecks of silver glitter.

Nintendo Switch | Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy

I’ve been looking forward to this ever since it was announced for the Switch, and it has not disappointed. I never really played much Crash growing up, as I only had the third game, but could never get past that level with Coco on Pura. My friend had the first game, so I would play that at her house, but that’s as far as it went. What I love about the Crash games is that it isn’t easy, and I’m getting plenty of hours from it. I have managed to get past that level with Coco and Pura though…

That is everything I have been loving throughout July!

    I’ve been looking at the Too Faced foundation for the longest time now, but I just haven’t picked it up. I love the concealer that goes with it though, if you haven’t tried that one it’s a must!

    Great post Hannah! I’m glad you love the Born this way foundation, it’s the one I’ve been using this summer too! I agree with everything you said. I’ve been trying to switch to an even lighter coverage this summer, but always end up going back to this one! The one I’ve been dying to try is the Charlotte Tilburry one, so I’m glad you like it so much. Like I said before, great post 🙂 xxx

      Thank you so much! Glad you’ve been liking it too, and it can be so hard to adjust to lighter coverage! It makes a really great base, especially if you like a glowy base, it’s just a tad expensive for what it is. Thank you xxx

  13. Emily says:

    Happy August my love! Favourite posts are always so bad as I’m forever wanting to buy things by the time I’ve finished reading! I’ve been umming and ahhing over the Flawless Filter foundation so it’s great to hear you love it! We got Crash remastered on PS4 a few months ago and it brought back SO many memories!

  19. I really need to try the Flawless Filter, I haven’t heard one negative thing about it. Speaking of cooler weather, I’m so ready for fall. We’ve been under a heat warning where I live, and I don’t want the humidity anymore. Great selection of makeup!
