Mini Haul - Beauty Products From July

A mini haul of beauty bits i have brought in the month of July :) Soap and Glory - You Wont Believe Your Eyes, a gorgeous eye serum/cream which you roller onto under and around the eye area, its cooling, soothing and brightens under eye circles, what more could you ask for, ive noticed it also really sets my eye makeup and i get less creasing from concealer which is an added bonus!
Nars - Laguna Bronzer, i had been lusting after a bronzer for agesss but because im so fair i naturally dont suit anything bronze/deep toned, i'd heard alot of good things about this cult product through YouTube and other beauty blogs that i thought i would go to my local Space NK and see what all the fuss was about, well as soon as i swatched it i knew it was going to suit me as it really isnt dark atall, its such a light bronze that it just gives such a lovely warm glow to my face without making me look orange or that i have put too much colour on my face, as you can see from the picture below it has a matte finish with only the subtlest of shimmer which makes this product perfect for contouring too :)
Clinique - Bottom Lash Mascara, another product i had been wanting for such a long time, my main reason for this is because no matter what mascara i use i always get fall out underneath my eye area, so frustrating as i never have alot of time during the day for touch-ups so i would end up walking round for hours looking like a panda without noticing, well this mascara is just perfect for that reason as since i have been using it for the past 3 weeks i have literally had no fall out whatsoever and the formula of this mascara is just beautiful, it separates every single lash and makes them look so long and lovely, this is a definite for anyone looking for the perfect solution to bottom lash mascara!
Caudalie - Tient Divine Gradual Self Tanning Cream, i am yet to try this yet as i only purchased this yesterday but i will let you know how i get on :)
Clinique - Chubby Stick Intense - Might Mimosa, I had seen Tanya Burr use this in so many tutorials i knew it was something i was going to have to try out, i love orange lip colours and this has a slightly reddy/orangey tone to it which is gorgeous with this amazing summer weather weve been having lately, it also makes your teeth look super white from the undertones in it, lipstick and teeth whitener in one go, what more could you ask for?
Essie - Tarte Deco, a lovely coral colour perfect for summer, you only need one coat of this, i think Essie definitely have the best nail products around, the formulas of them are so long wearing and you rarely even need a top coat with them.
Nars - Sheer Glow, this was a purchase i got when i brought my Nars Laguna Bronzer, i needed a new foundation and thought that this wasn't going to work for me because of the 'sheer' in the title, and from reading my previous post you will understand why the idea of a sheer foundation wouldnt work for me, but OH MY GOD, its A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, it has the most amazing coverage without looking cakey on the skin, you can buff this in so well and it still covers every last flaw, it is slightly matte with a hint of dewiness which also shows through towards the end of the day, but rather than wearing off in patches it 'sheers' out into a dewy finish with the coverage from when you first applied it, i believe this could be my new holy grail foundation, even rivalling my Mac - Studio Sculpt!
Clinique - Anti Blemish Solutions Spot Gel, a fairly standard spot gel, you cant really it on my hand as its very clear and light, its working so far but i will most likely have to update you on this as i dont think ive been using it long enough to give a fair review :)
Christian Dior - Cream Blush in Panama, Beautiful orange/coral blush, id really been looking for an orange/peach blush and couldnt really seem to find one anywhere until i stumbled across this a few days ago, it looks like its going to be really harsh on your skin but the swatch on my hand is actually built up by 3 layers of product, so the formula is actually really natural on the face making it so perfect for everyday use, but you can build the product up for nights out etc so all in all and really good product for keeping with you at all times.
Ren - Hydra Calm Youth Defence Serum (I apologise i had actually missed this out in the beginning photo) I have been using this for the past few nights underneath my moisturiser after i have cleansed and toned my skin, it works well on mattifying the face and makes my makeup adhere to my skin alot better than without it, again i dont think ive used this long enough to make a judgement on it :)
Caudalie - Beauty Elexir, a calming, cooling, refresing facial spray which has skincare benefits in it, it is a toner and makeup setter along with many other wonderful benefits to it, i really love the smell of this product, i have read that alot of people dont like the smell, and also seen many mixed reviews on this product, i like it so far, whether or not i see any long term benefits from using, im yet to tell, but im enjoying it at the moment and hope i continue to do so :)
So thats it for the beauty products i have purchased this month, i have brought a few bits in the summer sales, clothes, etc so if you would like me to do a haul of those bits let me know in the comments below and i can always do that for you! Hope you all enjoy your Sunday, i will be working but atleast i can sit and blog for the day whilst im there as im sure i will be fairly quiet tommorow :) See you soon, Frankie xxx
