July Favourites - MAC Strobe Cream, Loreal True Match Foundation, NYX Lid Lingerie, Charlotte Tilbury Champagne Diamonds

Hi Beauties! Can you believe it's the end of July already?! This year is going SO fast! July was a really good month for me; Chris and I moved in together and it was my birthday a few days ago so we had such a fab weekend celebrating with family and friends. I haven't done a monthly favourites post for a little while as I tend to gravitate towards the same products all of the time and they don't often change too much. However this month I had quite a few makeup favourites so thought I'd share them with you today! 

First up - an oldie but a goodie, MAC Strobe Cream. I am really struggling with my skin at the moment, it is so dry and dehydrated and no matter what I put on it it just doesn't seem to work at the moment. While I'm trying to figure out a new skincare regime I have been using this to give my skin a bit of luminosity underneath my foundation and I really love the look it gives! I have also been using the Loreal True Match foundation (Shade 2N/3N) more and more as it gives great coverage without being too cakey or drying, replacing my beloved Revlon True Match which I think I'm going to have to give up on now! 

Eyes wise I have been living for my NYX Lid Lingerie in Sweet Cloud - no joke you guys I have been wearing this pretty much EVERY day and it's nearly run out now. It gives such a pretty shimmer finish and doesn't budge all day (full review here if you're interested). I will definitely re-purchase but maybe give a different shade a try this time. I have also loved the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon pencil in Champagne Diamonds for a laid back champagne shimmer, great for relaxed makeup days where you don't want to have too much on! Lastly for eyes I have switched my normal Bobbi Brown gel liner in Black Ink for this one in Chocolate Shimmer Ink. It still gives a nice strong line but it's just a bit softer for summer and goes well with a bronzey shimmer shadow.

Lastly on the lips I have been reaching for Tanya Burr Birthday Cake lipstick a lot lately, it looks so effortless and the sheer finish makes it easy to top up throughout the day. Not to mention the colour is gorgeous and totally up my street! For going out makeup I have been obsessed with this matte liquid lipstick from Colourpop in the shade Vice. I got this off Amazon because I think Colourpop have discontinued this shade (noooooooo!). You can see how much I love it as the silver bits are rubbing off the tube! I have been wearing this over Boldly Bare lip liner from MAC (my favourite lip liner shade btw) and it looks fab with a smokey eye. I only really wear this for going out as I do really struggle with matte lipsticks feeling so drying, even though I do really love the look. I also got given a sample of this Smashbox Insta Matte lipstick transformer, which you can put on top of any lipstick and turn it matte without the dry finish, perfect for someone like me. I have this in my every day makeup bag at the moment and I love how it makes your lipsticks look. 

And there you have it, my July favourites! What have you been loving this month?
