My July Favourites! x
Hey guys it's Megs again, how are you all? How's your summer going? As I couldn't upload last week, I figured I would give you a double whammy to make up for it so yes, there are two new posts, woop woop! And as it's come to the end of July, I wanted to do another favourites but can I even post this seeing as it's currently the 8th of August?! Oh well, Hakuna Matata n all that:)
My long list of favourites start with a book which I've been wanting to read for a while now. It's called If I Stay by Gayle Forman and I'm not gonna lie I nearly teared up a bit reading it! It's about...well I can't really explain without giving the whole plot away! I know this is probably the worst book review you've ever read but just know that she has to make a choice that could lead to life or death...
Next is a beauty fave and it is by no mistake, the Stila Eyes Are The Window palette! Now this is a tad pricey at £30.00 but I saved up for it and I'm happy I did as this.is.so.beautifulll. The pigmentation on these eyeshadows are insane and the colours are gorgeous, as well as the rose gold packaging (which was part of what made me want it sorrynotsorry). I've been using Kitten (top left) all over my lid when I want a natural eye look and Wheat (third down on the left) with Golightly (third down in the middle) in the crease for something a bit more special!
If you've been following my Instagram lately, @wellandtrulyspanglishx , you might of seen my post about the Essence Gel Nail Polish that I've been loving! It's kind of a pearly pink colour with flecks of glitter but it's very sheer so I tend to do quite a few overcoats with it to make a nice base colour before I put a clear top coat on over the top! When I was at the Essence display (having not tried any of their nail varnishes before, I only picked up one) there were lots more colours in their gel range so I reckon I might have to go back there to pick up a few more<3
A quick accessory fave I've found has been this triangle necklace from Primark (I'm not sure if it has a proper name or not so I'm just gonna call it the triangle necklace:). I've been wearing this with anything and everything! It goes with so much and for only £3.00 I think it was a bargain as it can smarten a casual outfit or make a smart outfit more casual<3
I know this is getting kind of long so I'm going to try and make it shorter now:) My last 2 favourites have been the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in the shade 15 because I needed a new concealer and I heard some pretty good reviews so I decided to get it and it's been so good! And last of all, my song favourite for July has been Shine by Years&Years because I play it constantly and know all the words and yee<3
Sorry for this being long, I just felt like I should go into more depth with everything this time! Be sure to go check out my other post: What's In My Travel Makeup Bag!
So to finish this off I want to say a big thank you for the 300 reads I got last month!! Crazy or what?!
