July favourites

Evening guys,

 So today I wanted to do a post on a couple of items I have been loving this month.

Hair/Body Products

Radox Shower Smoothie- passion fruit & papaya- this smells amazing, it just smells all tropical and yummy! I will definitely be repurchasing this.

Uniq One- all in one hair treatment- since receiving a sample size of this in a Glossybox, I loved it and have purchased the full size. Love this product!

Makeup products

Naked palette- I have found myself reaching for this a lot this month and have fallen back in love with it again. I have to admit I prefer this one over the Naked 2 palette.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish- Blonde- This has been my go to highlighter for the month as well as a blush. I love MAC's MSF's they're great multi-use products.

Natural Collection pressed powder in Warm- I have been using this powder for the last month and a bit, and absolutely love it, well worth €3.99! Will definitely be repurchasing this when I run out.

MAC Tenderling blush- this has been my most used blush this month. It's also a great contour shade for my skintone. Really recommend this shade if you haven't tried it!

Real Techniques Powder brush- this is the softest powder brush I have used EVER! I am loving the Real Techniques brushes and will definitely be expanding my collection in the near future.

What are your monthly favourites?

MAC Heavenly Creature Collection- my picks!

Hey guys!

As you may know by now I am a bit of a MAC fiend. So when I heard MAC were releasing their latest collection, Heavenly Creatures, I was beyond excited. This collection is modelled around galaxies and space etc.
I was immediately drawn to their Mineralize Skin Finishes as they looked amazing, these are one of my favourite products by MAC. These were quite pricy at €28.50, but in a way they're worth the money as get quite a lot of product for the price. They can also double up as a blush as well as a highlight. I picked up two of these MSF's in Light Year and Star Wonder. 

Top - Bottom: Light Year, Star Wonder

I also picked up two of the Mineralize blushes, as I don't own many of the mineral blushes but have always been intrigued. I picked them up in Solar Ray and Supernova. These are €23 each.

Top - Bottom: Solar Ray, Supernova

Also from the collection I picked up two of the Cremesheen Glass lipglosses. The Cremesheen lipglosses are my favourite formulation of lipgloss from MAC. The lipglosses are €20 each. I picked up the shades Astral- a gorgeous deep fuchsia, and Meteoric- a beautiful peachy coral, definitely my favourite!

Top - Bottom: Astral, Meteoric

And last but not least I picked up the infamous Volcanic Ash exfoliator. This is a re-promote from MAC's Style Black collection in 2009.

This is definitely one of the most hyped about products from this collection. It does however come with a hefty price tag of €30, but you only need the smallest bit. This leaves my skin so smooth and refreshed.
Do you have any favourites from this collection?
