July 2013 Favourites!


...I'm not going to lie. I have been extremely lazy and exhausted lately and just never felt like blogging because all I want to do when I have time on my hands is sleep. But I'm writing now, which is good! So since I never wrote a June Favourites post...or even a May Favourites...I decided to write one for the month of July because I found some great products that I could not stop using!  

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eye Liner in Black
I've heard many fellow beauty bloggers rave about these eye liners from Rimmel, and I thought I should try out one. I'm so happy I did! These liners are super pigmented and creamy and go on super easy! They're also waterproof so their perfect for those hot summer days when you're out and about.

Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart
You guys already know how I feel about Revlon's Lip Butters, so I'm not going to write a lot. I could go on and on and on and on about these lipsticks but I wanna keep it short and simple. I think this shade is super pretty and looks really nice on any skin tone. It has a nice sheen finish to it and is super moisturizing!

EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint
This month I decided to jump on the bandwagon and buy my first ever EOS lip balm, and what an amazing decision it was. First of all, I am a fool for anything mint scented or flavoured. Second, it is really hydrating and moisturizing. Finally, it makes your lips feel really cool and tingly after applying it! Definitely going to try out all of the other EOS lip balms!

Neutregena's Oil Free Pink Grapefruit Face Wipes
My face tends to be a little bit more oily in the summer, so I wanted to try out some face wipes that wouldn't break me out. Rachel gave me a pack that she didn't want anymore and so I was excited to see how they were. At first I thought they were just makeup removing wipes, but when I was having some difficulty removing my makeup I looked closer at the package and realized they were for your face. Let me just say, these wipes smell amaaaazing! I haven't experienced any breakouts from them yet, so I'm quite pleased with them. 

Aveeno Daily Moisturizer  
I am a freak when it comes to moisturization and having healthy looking skin, so I wanted to try a nice lotion. I had heard so many good things about Aveeno's lotions so I picked up a smaller size of their Daily Moisturizer to test out. Here's a little secret of mine- I've always had dried elbows. So when I bought this lotion I applied it on my elbows everyday for a whole week. By the end of the week, my elbows were extremely soft and looked a lot better! 

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in Mellow Yellow
So I was going through my nail polish collection and I realized that I didn't have any yellows in there at all. Shame. While I was at Pharma Plus one day I noticed that their Sally Hansen nail polishes were on sale and I obviously had to pick up Mellow Yellow. This colour is perfect for summer because it's so brighty and fun! The only thing that disappoints me a little bit is that it can be a tad bit streaky, but applying two coats should do the trick to making it opaque!

Hope you guys enjoyed the post!
