NYX // Liquid Suede – ‘Sandstorm’
After going a little crazy on the NYX lip creams after the Boots store release, I decided to give the Suede glosses a go, seeing as they seem to be getting their fair share of media lately. I picked up ‘Sandstorm’, because after grabbing ‘Velvet Teddy’ I’ve been really into introducing more bold nudes into my collection. And, without meaning for this, it’s actually a pretty good dupe for ‘Velvet Teddy’ maybe just a fraction darker and pinkier though. The formula for this is nicer to apply than the Soft Matte Lip Creams, much butterier and easier to apply an even coat. I’ll be back it boots picking up a few more shades after pay day, I’m sure.
BECCA // Shimmering Skin Perfector – ‘Opal’
This is the only item in my favourites that isn’t new this month. I love my BECCA highighter in ‘Champagne Pop’ and wear it every day without fail. However, since getting back from Thailand, I’ve been reaching for ‘Opal’ much more. It has warmer, more golden undertones than ‘Champagne Pop’ and with my tan, it looks so beautiful. If you’re holidaying it up this summer I’d really recommend picking up this highlighter, mine’s looking a little worse for wear at the moment but it’s still as beautiful as ever!
Daniel Sandler // Watercolour Blush – ‘Spicy’
I have this blush in ‘Cherub’ already and love how easy it is to apply and end up with a natural blush. It’s one of those fool-proof products that’s really hard to get wrong. I love it but kind of felt like I need something less like Sping and more like Summer. And this shade is perfect. It’s an orange toned pink, definitely more orange than pink but not orange at all, if that makes sense? It looks much brighter in the bottle than what it swatches and my example in the image below isn’t the best so I guess you’re going to just have to believe me on this one!
I have honestly had so much fun with makeup this week, I’ve tried new things and developed new ways of wearing products in different climates. As much as I want to continue saving my money to travel next year, it’ll be hard to stop myself from spending in July. Are there any new products that you’ve recently tried and loved? I need an excuse to try something new and if someone recommends something then it’d be rude not to, right?!
