Monthly Favourites: July

30 July 2014
July seems to have passed in the blink of an eye and for some odd reason I haven't posted a monthly favourites since May so this was definitely long overdue! Oddly enough I've tried to reign in the whole money spending thing (& I've been making the most of the sun for once - not shopping, shock horror) and as a result I've fell in love with things I'd forgotten about all over again. 


At the start of the month if you've read this post of mine (link here) you'll know I picked up the sample sized Clinique High Impact Mascara featured in Glamour and at first I was seriously dissappointed, there was barely any difference in my eyelashes at all and I'd lost hope a little. I decided that I must have just been having an off day and tried another few times with it but it still does nothing to to the top lashes, only working wonders on the bottom. I wonder if this is just the sample sized that has this problem but at least I know now the full size is not for me. 

Theres a theme for all the things I've been wearing lately - matte, light, simple and long lasting, as worrying about your makeup melting off your face is not top of the priority list, you want something that's going to stay in place and this is where MAC's painterly paint pot comes in. I went on a daytrip to Glasgow in July and applied this at 5am and at 10pm when I came home, it was still sitting perfectly - talk about long lasting. Its so easy to apply, doesn't need a lot of product and just gives a lovely even colour on your lid.

I also realised I had a fair few mascaras in my collection that weren't being used so I've decided to use them up before I buy anymore and the L'oreal Miss Manga mascara is one of them. I loved this when it was first released and then for some reason forgot about it, I wish I hadn't have. It really does give my eyes that extra definition, lengthening and volumising my lashes. It lasts all day, doesn't clump and honestly it might just have to be repurchased.  

As for lips the Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 101 hasn't been off my lips, its a gorgeous blue toned pink great for everyday wear and it definitely lasts all day (even after eating!). Lastly for beauty/skincare related items is After Sun, we had 2 weeks of scorching sun, completely unusual for us but being the paleish person that I am, my face shoulders and arms got a bit of colour for which after sun was my saviour. This Garnier one was left over from when I went on holiday in April but I love the smell, all after sun in general just smells absolutely amazing and they all basically double up as a moisturiser too. 

Lastly I've been loving 5sos' and Ed Sheerans new albums this month and also my favourite American shows Pretty Little Liars and Teen Wolf, the new series' started back in June and I've been hooked ever since. If you haven't watched either of them I seriously recommend them :)

Thanks for reading, Jenny xo

  2. I picked up the Clinique mascara also and It just clumped my lashes, didn't like it much at all! L'Oreal mascaras are definitely the best I've found so far, haven't tried Miss Manga, but my all time fav is Million Lashes! :D
