This months favorites is mainly holiday inspired. During my week in Mexico, I started using some more summery products which I have continued to use throughout the month. There have been some great new beauty releases too which I can’t wait to share with you, I could have easily featured them in this months favorites but as there are quite a few and I have only had them just over a week, I thought I would save them for next month. Stay tuned next week for some rave reviews of these exciting new products!
You already know how much I love the formulation of this nail polish (review), but the shade Hot Salsa is new to me and have worn nothing else on my nails this month. It is a vibrant pinky coral which is the perfect holiday nail color and I know will be making quite a few appearances on my nails this coming Summer!
You may have seen me mention this in my new holiday make up post, but this bronzing stick is just amazing for turning you into a bronzed goddess in seconds. A few swipes of this across the cheeks and temples blended in with the fingers tips gives you a beautiful summer tan that looks like the real deal. It really is fool proof and I love that no brushes are required!
I have got to say, no matter how many different eyeshadows I try, I always will have a love for Mac Eyeshadows for their range of shades, their blendability and great formulation. I have used nothing but this quad this month which comprises of All That Glitters, Woodwinked, Espresso and Texture. Most days I have been using my favorite combination of All That Glitters all over the lid and Texture in the crease (see post for photo), but occasionally swap Texture for Espresso. Both are matte shadows and give a lovely warmth to the eye, which I also use under the lower lash line too. Of course I had to bring Woodwinked on holiday with me as it is just the most gorgeous bronzy gold shadow that looks amazing on its own blended across the lid. I love to pair this with a turquoise liner too in the Summer for a tropical look.
I have had this liner for a while now but have not really used it much until now. I have recently started swapping up my signature winged liner for a more smudgy, summer appropriate look. I apply a fine line on my top lash line and smudge it in with a Mac 239 brush which gives a subtle smokey look and goes beautifully with all the shadows mentioned above. I also use it in my upper waterline when I want to add a bit more definition. This eyeliner is so creamy and easy to blend and stays put all day long.
I have had this bottle for the past two years, and it is a scent that I like to whip out as soon as the sun starts shining. It is like summer in a bottle and combines scents of coconut, vanilla, amber and tiara flower which just scream holidays! It is lovely and light so not overpowering at all and is my favorite scent during the summer months. There is a new limited edition that is brought out every year, so keep your eyes peeled for this years release as it sells out pretty quick!
