JULY BEAUTY HAUL & REVIEW


Hi everyone!
Today I'm back with a beauty haul. Here are just a few things that I picked up during this month. I feel like this month I didn't focus on buying beauty related products as much, mainly because there wasn't anything that REALLY stood out to me. However, everything I show in this haul are products I'm really loving and so happy that I bought them!


TARTE SHAPE TAPE CONTOUR CONCEALER
Lets begin with my favourite product out of all the other ones that I will be sharing with you. This is the highly popular Tarte shape tape concealer. I've heard way too many good things about this concealer that I had to take advantage of the free international delivery Tarte was providing! The product came fairly quickly - took about a week!
In terms of its consistency, it's a really thick and creamy concealer. It instantly covers my creases and the coverage is unbelievable. You really need the tiniest amount of this product because of how thick it is! It's a really big concealer compared to your standard ones, and I'm not complaining. It assures me that this product will last a very long time!
I was blessed with dark circles, so a bit of orange colour corrector and this on top covers them magically. So so happy with this purchase and definitely reccomend it to anyone out there looking for a good quality concealer - especially if you have dark circles, hyper pigmentation and dark scarring.

Tarte - Shade MEDIUM - £19


NYX SCULPT & HIGHLIGHT FACE DUO

This is the cream highlight and contour duo from NYX that I'm loving! I use this every time I do a full face of makeup and this is so easy to use! As someone who isn't such a pro when it comes to contouring, this product has made it a lot easier for me to contour my face without looking like a clown. It has a precise doe foot applicator which makes it easy to trace the contour points of my face. The contour and highlighter are so easy to blend - however I do mainly use this product for the contour stick. The concealer/highlighter part is slightly on the peachy side which is what I'm a bit annoyed about because I have a very yellow undertone. But it has great coverage for those looking for a good highlighting concealer!

NYX / Shade CINNAMON & PEACH / £9.50


NYX BORN TO GLOW LIQUID ILLUMINATOR
This is a liquid highlighter by NYX. This one has a rose gold tone which I love! I'm more into my champagne/bronze highlighter, so it was nice to switch it up a bit! It's not TOO intense like my Benefit Sun Beam, but it's good for those subtle makeup days. It has a beautiful glow, perfect for all skin tones! It is a lot smaller than I thought it would be, but you don't need too much of this product. However, one thing I did wrong was that I mixed a lot of the highlighter with my foundation which resulted to my face looking quite pink, which again isn't good for someone with a very yellow undertone. So again, a small amount of this product will do. 

NYX / Shade GLEAM / £8


NYX LIQUID SUEDE LIPSTICK
Next is this dark brown liquid lipstick that I'm loving. The liquid suede range by NYX is incredible - they're creamy matte liquid lipsticks that are very long lasting and don't feel dry at all!! They're honestly my favourite and I also own another one of these in the shade Soft Spoken. I've had my eyes on Sandstorm too for a while, might have to grab that at some point! They're really affordable and what more could you want from a very pigmented and creamy matte liquid lipstick?

NYX / Shade DOWNTOWN BEAUTY / £7


MAYBELLINE MASTER BRONZE & HIGHLIGHTING KIT 
This is a beautiful bronzing and highlighting palette that I am loving right now! What I love is that this palette has a multipurpose. I use the first shade as a highlighter (left)- this one is a gold highlighter. The second powder is quite pink, so if I ever feel like adding some blush on, I use this one! The third powder is more browny, so perfect for bronzing! The fourth powder is a slightly shimmery rose gold-y shade that I like to use as a highlighter too sometimes, but I also like to mix this shade with the second pink one to use as a eyeshadow! Very blendable and pigmented powders, would defo recommend! 

MAYBELLINE / £12.99


REAL TECHNIQUES SETTING BRUSH
Lastly, this is one of my favourite brushes by Real Techniques - the setting brush. I now have two, I use one for highlighting and this one for setting my under eyes with a loose powder! There's nothing much more to say! This brush has such good quality and really helps to set my under eyes properly - it has the perfect shape! This is also a great brush for highlighter - I prefer these than the fan brushes!

£7.99

I hope you enjoyed this mini haul! I haven't really focused on beauty this month because I wanted to focus on skincare more, as well as fashion!

Till next time,
