JULY FAVOURITES 2014!


Hey internet friends!! Today, I'll be sharing what I've been loving in the month of July. I think this is the first time that I posted the 'monthly favourites' on time [I think I deserve a pat on the back..]. Anyways, let's jump straight into my first fave which is..

See by Chloe Perfume
SEE BY CHLOE PERFUME

This is one of the presents that I bought for myself, for my birthday last month. I had been eyeing this perfume for so long. Boy oh boy! So glad I have this scent of heaven in my life. This scent lingers on me for the majority of the day, which is a huge bonus. This fragrance has a sweet, fresh scent to it. It's not too overpowering for the nose, it's light and has a hint of sexiness to it. I've gotten compliments when wearing this, so you know that this is a winner. The packaging of the perfume is alright, their signature perfume with the bow is much more cuter. Anything with a bow, gets a big yahh-huhh from me!

Physicians Formula Nude Wear Blush
PHYSICIANS FORMULA NUDE WEAR BLUSH
Speaking of bows, let's talk about this little cutie patootie that is, a blush. Ten out of ten for the packaging! Just incase you haven't realised, there's a secret compartment with a mirror and a brush in the back. I don't use the brush though, but the mirror always comes in handy. In terms of the pigmentation, it's pretty sheer. You can build the color up to an extent, which I really like. You definitely wouldn't end up looking like a clown with this. On the cheeks, it leaves a nice soft pink colour on them. It also gives you a nice glow. I think this works well as a highlighter too. The only negative for me is the price. Luckily, I bought it on a sale though so I am quite happy with it.
Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer
 MAYBELLINE DREAM LUMI HIGHLIGHTING CONCEALER

This one is an old favourite. I repurchased it at the beginning of this month, I fell back in love with it even more than I did the first time. When I first used it, I only applied it under my eyes. This time, I use it to highlight areas on my face and it does wonders. It makes me look fresh face and radiant. It blends like a dream and best of all, it doesn't crease on me. For under the eyes, it's great to conceal dem panda eyes but also brightens them up. The only complain I have of this, is that it runs out very fast. Perhaps, it's because I use it to highlight areas on my face as well... Overall, I will probably keep repurchasing till they discontinue it [don't do it, Maybelline]. 
Benefit They're Real Mascara
BENEFIT THEY'RE REAL MASCARA 

To be honest, when I first used this mascara I wasn't that impressed with it. I didn't get why this is every beauty blogger's cult favourite mascara. I left it in the back of my drawer for awhile. Then one day I decided to give it another go and I loved it. This is the ultimate mascara. It does everything you want a mascara to perform. It holds a curl well, volumises and lengthens your lashes. The biggest plus about the mascara, would be the wand itself. I like the little spikey ball at the end, which is great for getting those little, stubborn lashes on the inner corners of your eyes. As you can see from the photo above, I have three sample size of the mascara that I got from the Benefit mascara swap, magazine and an event. I'm not sure if I'd buy the full size mascara but I'm enjoying using these babies up.
Real Techniques Duo Fibre Brushes
REAL TECHNIQUES DUO FIBRE BRUSHES

I'm loving using the Real Techniques brushes and it's no surprise why. Their brushes are very well made and are high quality in my opinion. This duo fibre brush set is great because it retrains you from applying too much makeup [I like cake, but no one wants to look like a cake face]. The bristles feels incredibly soft on the skin. I use the little brush to contour my nose but it's a great blending brush for the eye-shadow too. The contouring/medium brush I use for duh..contouring. It picks up the right amount of product and blends well on the hollow of the cheeks. The large powder brush is great for applying loose powder to set the foundation. Bravo, Sam and Nic! 
T2 Melbourne Breakfast  Tea
T2 MELBOURNE BREAKFAST TEA
If you're a coffee lover, then see you later. But if you're a tea lover like myself, you'll love this tea. It's absolutely divine. It's basically a vanilla flavoured tea. It smells and taste incredible! I usually put a teaspoon or two of sugar with it, cause I like my tea sweet. If you don't like tea, I think this will definitely make you change your mind. 
I shall now leave you with a tea related quote-
"Where there's tea, there's hope."

  1. Some great picks here lovely! I am a tea AND coffee lover ;) I've tried the T2 Melbourne tea and I loved it! I will have to pick it up again to take me back :) Good to see you are safely on the bandwagon with loving Benefit They're Real mascara too! It took me a bit to fall in love too but now it's a staple :)

    I love T2... I like Good Afternoon and chocolate the best. My favourite was Hobart Breakfast but the changed it and now it's awful lol!!
    The white real techniques brushes are beautiful!!
    I am really wanting to try the Physician's Formula blush it's so pretty!
    I wasn't a fan of the They're Real mascara... I love the eyeliner but the mascara didn't give me enough oomph but saying that I like to use it for a lower lash mascara!
    Great favs Natalie!

  8. You have some great picks! I love the "they're real" mascara too, but I can't force myself into buying the full sized one because it's so expensive compared to drugstore mascaras!
