Apologies for the late posting of my favourite goodies this month! Making the Giveaway video and loads of filming held me up this last few weeks. However, it means we have heaps of videos coming up for you guys :)
Anyway, straight to this past month's favourites! First off are my new favourite hair products, LÓreal Paris EverPure hair system. I had been waiting for a while for this range to get here and picked them up the moment I spotted them in-store.
The reason I wanted to try it is because of the sulphate-free aspect. If you've read my previous hair articles, I mentioned that I was following the sulphate-free method, which means I don't let any shampoo containing sulphates anywhere near my hair.
I had tried one from The Body Shop and it was good but I wanted something better. The Body Shop one was the first sulphate-free shampoo I found here!
Anyway, I'm really enjoying these LÓreal duo. You only need a small amount of the shampoo and it does a great job of cleansing my hair and scalp without stripping it like sulphate shampoos do. And i love the Rosemary Mint scent! And the conditioner really surprised me. When you first feel it, it doesn't feel like it has alot of 'slippage' that's great for detangling. However, when you do use it, it does a great job of detangling! My hair really seems to love this duo. I already went out and bought a back-up of the conditioner.
These 2 mascaras from German cosmetics brand Essence have been my favourites this month! They've been in my collection for a while and I had used them separately but then, for some reason, I thought I would layer the 2 and I loved the result!
The I Love Extreme one is a really thick mascara with a massive brush (Essence Mascara Review coming soon!) and this is one of those mascaras that, if you don't know how to work with it, it would be a thick, clumpy mess! I, for some reason, gravitate to mascaras like that!
Using the definition mascara first then layering the I Love Extreme over that gives me full, thick lashes!!
This primer from Smashbox is a new discovery. I had been planning for a while to buy a high-end primer and just wasn't sure what to pick up. I had no idea we had Smashbox here in Switzerland but we apparently do as I discovered on one of my shopping wanderings! :D
Anyway, the Sales Assistant was wonderful, testing the primer out on me first before I decided to buy it. And I'm really enjoying it. It does a great job of smoothing out my face so that when I apply foundation, it just applies smoothly and even and lasts all day. One main thing I enjoy about this primer is that while it does mattify my face, it's not to the point where my face looks dry. It just mattifies to the point where my face just looks even and oil-free.
This lipgloss from Essence has been my go-to lipgloss this month. It is from Essence's Marble Mania collection, however, you can still get it as I think it is now part of their regular line. It is a beautiful swirl of light pink and coral and has fine shimmer. It's a beautiful light, almost bubblegum pink, and seems to work over most lipsticks.
Lastly, been enjoying this Golden Bronzer from e.l.f, which was part of my recent online order. What I enjoy about this bronzer (besides the budget-friendly price!) is that it doesn't leave obvious glitter all over your face. It has fine shimmer which gives you a glow, instead of looking sparkly.
I love the highlight colour, especially for the brow bone, and I enjoy that it has four squares of colour so I can pick up just the gold alone for a shimmery bronzer.
So those are my favourites for June to July, guys! I especially love when I can discover new ways of using some of the old things I have in my collection, which is the case for the 2 Essence mascaras! :)
Wishing you all a great week!! Share your favourites with us!! And don't forget, our Giveaway is still going!! :)
