July Favourites 2012!


Watch my July Favourites video here

Welcome to my July Faves! :)

I don't have a ton of products to talk about this month, but the ones I'm mentioning are items I've absolutely loved!  I decided to include a few non-beauty products in here too...hope you guys don't mind ;)


MAKEUP

Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner in black
This stuff is amazing!  It was actually sent in a care package by a subscriber of ours and the first time I used it was right before the Dublin meet-up...holy moly!  It draws the blackest line, is super pigmented and lasts all day!  I don't know where I can find Avon near where I live but whenever I do I am definitely repurchasing it.

Chanel Coco Rouge Lipstick #38 Superstition
This is my first ever Chanel lipstick, and as you guys know if you read my blog regularly or have been with me for a long time my all-time favourite lipstick used to be Rimmel Summer Angel which they have sadly discontinued!  This is like an even more beautiful "grown up" dupe for that.  It's a gorgeous nude with gold shimmer in it...I absolutely love it!

FYF Cosmetics Dewdrop Lipstick in Coy
My wedding day lipstick, and not a new product by any means...it's been sitting in my makeup drawer for a couple of months but I've been loving it again lately and I'm sorry I ever forgot about it!  It's like the perfect Brigitte Bardot nude pink.

Here are the three products mentioned above swatched -- Superstition is above the liner and Coy below.

Maybelline Superstay 24hr Concealer in #3 Medium Beige
I have written about this concealer before but this month I repurchased it in a darker shade, as I've been using self-tanner and I felt like #2 was too light.  This is a much better match!  And as I've said before it's a great drugstore concealer.  It covers both blemishes and dark circles so it's perfect for my everyday routine!


NAILS

OPI My Address is "Hollywood" Nail Lacquer
I received this polish in the same care package from a lovely subscriber and I think it's so pretty!  It's that perfect dark/dusky pink shade that I love but the difference is that this particular colour has gold flecks in it, so it's just right for summer.  It also shows up true on my nails, unlike a few others I own that always seem to look coral on me :(  Also please note that this is NOT the polish I'm wearing on my nails in the picture!  Ha ha ha, that's Essie's Fiji!

SKINCARE

Dove Visible Effects Nourishing Body Lotion
I mentioned this in my hygiene routine post but this really has become my all-time favourite body moisturiser.  It truly does keep your skin super soft throughout the whole day and does a fabulous job at maintaining my tan.  I definitely recommend it, especially if you are looking for something to use in between tanning to keep your skin moisturised!

HAIR

Tangle Teezer
I'm so glad I finally got to try this!  It had been recommended to me by everybody as my hair has always been very thick, unruly and tangles so easily whenever it's wet.  So this has been an absolute lifesaver...making brushing out so much easier and less painful, ha ha!

FASHION

Sarita Chakita Necklaces
These two necklaces were sent to me as a gift from another subscriber of mine who made it clear that she did not expect me to promote them in anyway, but I just had to let you guys know about them!  I think they are super cute, well-made, good quality and not too heavy or bulky for chain jewellery.  She sent me two necklaces, one is silver with three chains at the end of it and the other is gold with a big pink stone in it.  You can check out her website here!

DIET

Peaches/Nectarines
If you're lucky enough to live in a hotter climate where these are grown in abundance, I envy you because they have been my ultimate favourite fruit lately!  Here in Ireland you can really only get the smaller, slightly bitter ones but I'm craving a huge juicy white Italian peach like the ones we had in Sorrento...yum!   

Knorr Gourmet Moments Cream of Sunripened Tomato Soup
You might have been wondering when I was going to address the random packet of soup...lol!  This has been a popular lunch here in our house ever since Jofus decided to make it with fun little pasta shapes and parmesan cheese on top...it's very comforting in this crappy weather!  

YOUTUBE CHANNEL

couturemomnyc
I've really been loving Jan's channel this month -- it's such a nice feeling to know that you have such lovely subscribers and when they make videos of their own it's even better!!  I found Jan by accident when I clicked on her profile after she left me a sweet comment, I had never realised that she made videos too though I did recognise her username as someone who had often left very supportive & kind words...this is the way to promote your channel IMHO, not by spamming -- just be nice! :)  It always pays off in the end.  I would love for you guys to check out Jans' channel here.  I think you will all enjoy it and she is such a chic, stylish woman who really knows her stuff!!

  1. Your subscribers are very nice and sweet to send you such lovely treats Anna. I do agree that the Avon supershock gel eyeliner is really the most pigmented and blackest eyeliner one has ever seen. Avon is not available in Singapore either so I bought it on ebay for a really good deal!!!

    Looking lovely as always Anna. Enjoy your day :)
