July Favourites

Yes, I know. We're well into August and yet here I am posting the obligatory July favourites post ... I just didn't get around to do it earlier, but I figure better late than never, right? So without further ado, here's what I've been liking last month:

#1: The Body Shop Camomille Silky Cleansing Oil
I've already talked about this in detail in my favourite makeup remover post, and I'm still using it daily. It just smells heavenly and breaks up makeup so quickly- it feels just so nice after a long day when all you want to do is clean your face. (13€)

#2: NARS Laguna Bronzer 
Nothing new here- since purchasing it over half a year ago, I've used this bronzer almost daily (and sadly already hit pan in the process). I get a bit lazy with makeup in the summer and I often can't be bothered to put on blush, but Laguna is just so easy to apply when you just want a bit of definition on your face without putting too much effort into it. (37€)

#3: MAC Fluidline Gelcreme in Deep Dark Brunette 
There's nothing I've mentioned more often on this blog when it comes to makeup than this brow product- I just love it so much. I've been using it since the end of June, and I haven't used a different brow product since- the staying power and the way it applies just trump everything else! I've reviewed it in this post. (20€)

#4: Dr. Scheller organic apothecary Organic Jasmine 24h Moisture Care 
My favourite skincare product is definitely the new moisturiser I've been trying out recently. After some allergic reactions in the beginning of summer, my skin was pretty wrecked and really dry, so I wanted to change things up. It comes in a nice, weighty glass jar and smells just divine- I can't really put my finger on it, obviously it smells like jasmine but there's something else in it that really appeals to me. Other than that, it really does a good job and moisturising my dried out skin- I'm using it in the morning as well as in the evening right now. (13,95€)

#5: Essence all about matt! fixing compact powder
Since it's summer, it doesn't matter what foundation I'm using as my base- getting shiny is kind of inevitable. This translucent powder does exactly what it's supposed to- it takes the shine away and doesn't make your face look cakey. Plus, it's super affordable, so what's not to like? (~3€)

#6: MaxFactor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation 
My base of choice right now after I've emptied my matte BB Cream. I don't keep a big stash of foundation around because I tend to stick with stuff I know works for me, and I'm pretty sure I'll be repurchasing this when it's empty. It has medium to full coverage but doesn't look and feel too heavy when you put it on, and it really does last the whole day for me. Added bonus: it comes in a glass bottle with a pump and has SPF 20. (~13,50€)

#7 & #8: H&M Rose-gold Bracelets and Pineapple Earrings 
I got these bits of jewellery on my trip to Linz about a month ago, and I've been wearing them a lot these past weeks. The bracelets came in a pack of four, but I usually just wear two of them together on one wrist. Other than that, I'm kind of obsessed with pineapples at the moment- I have two pineapple shirts- so I was happy to add these cute earrings to my collection. (Bracelets 4,99€, Earrings 2,99€)
