Eeek I am once again late with my favourites post, I have been rather busy but I promise I will prepare next months on time.
With all this lovely, sunny weather I have been very much loving tanning and getting to wear all of my summer clothes which have been collecting dust at the back of my wardrobe. I have found a great combination which creates a nice, real looking tan. I bought the Rimmel Sun Shimmer Pre Tan Exfoliator, when Rimmel first launched it at the beginning of spring. It was just £1.99 when I got is as it was an introductory offer, but now it is only £3.99 which is still an excellent price. The exfloliator has a great gritty texture which really leaves the skin refreshed which is just what you need before you tan. I then applied my latest beauty buy - the Xen Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe, Vivianna Does Makeup did a bronzing/tanning video recently and she featured Xen Tan and stated how much she loved it, she I took the plunge and its really nice. Considering it is Ultra Dark, compared to other tans it was light. I applied one layer the night before and in the morning I had a nice colour, but next time I would apply two layers to create a slightly darker summery glow.
The Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ has been a firm favourite of mine this month. I did a post recently solely on this lotion, as I bought the travel size version and loved it so much I upgraded to the full size. As I work at Debenhams I get 20% off all beauty, and they also had a tax free on beauty products last weekend meaning I got this for just £19. To me they seemed like such a bargain.
I have rediscovered a favourite lipstick this month, and it comes from Kate Moss' line for Rimmel. The colour is 101, its a nice pink toned velvety matte shade. It is just a great everyday lipstick which I put on to add a little vibrancy to my makeup but nothing over the top. These are just £5.49, and I think Rimmel does high street lipsticks the best.
Finally, another lipstick I have been loving comes from MAC (surprise, surprise!). I actually got this one free when I handed in my 6 swaps to get a free lipstick. It comes in the colour Patisserie which is a great everyday nude. This always comes up as a bestseller, and I know so many friends and bloggers that love this. It gives a create lift of colour to the lips and you can wear it with absolutely anything, a definite staple to keep in the bottom of your handbag.
Hope you all have a fabulous July!
