The Seasonal Roundup

Saturday, 4 August 2018


Seeing as Summer is in full swing (minus the rain that we've had only briefly in amongst the four week long heatwave), I thought it would only be right to share the products that I have switched into my everyday makeup and things that I have been loving. Here goes..

Becca Mineral Bronzing/Highlighter Duo in Serrana 
This bronzer is insane. My favourite bronzing brush (the Real Techniques blush brush) swoops this product onto the cheeks and forehead so sparingly and effortlessly. It's definitely a more 'warm' bronzer, but I think that's why I love it so much. It looks gorgeous on, and definitely adds the right amount of bronze. The 'tan' that my face has been sporting, is due to this guy.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Athens
I'm a huge fan of the formula of these lip creams - even more so with how hot and sticky it has been. They're so comfortable to wear, and last for ages. The shade 'Athens' has been a new-ish shade in my collection, and I didn't think it would suit me massively, seeing as it's a brighter pink shade than I usually go for. But it's lovely. This paired with the Becca bronzer makes for the cutest summer glow and pop of colour.

Barry M Lip Liner in Rose
This lip liner wasn't a purchase that I was meaning to make - I thought I had lost my trusty Mac lip liner in 'Whirl', and I wasn't ready to spend £12+ on essentially a pencil, so I wanted to try and find a similar but cheaper option. I opted for this one. It's so comparable to the Mac ones in the sense that the formula is so soft and creamy, and even the packaging of the pencil is similar. The shade 'Rose' is more pink toned than 'Whirl' but I do like how it looks, especially when paired with Mac's 'Mehr' lipstick. (After I brought this, I did find 'Whirl, typical).


Bath and Body Works Scented Candle in Pineapple and Mango
Whilst in New York at the beginning of last month, I didn't really make that many purchases. The reason being, was that I found a lot of things that you once couldn't get over here in the UK, but could in the USA has changed. Loads more cosmetic brands etc, are now available in the UK and there was nothing in particular I had my eye on, so I couldn't justify bringing items back home, that I could just purchase at home. That being said, I dragged my Dad to Bath and Body works as we don't have these in the UK. To my surprise they were having a summer sale and I picked up this beauty. Originally $24.50, and I got it for $10!!! It smells amazing (even when not lit) and the packaging is so cute. Such a summery and fresh scent.

Odesza
For me, this artist is the epitome of Summer. Their songs are so up beat and perfect for a summer road trip. I have been loving them all that more these past couple of months.


What have you loved in Summer?

  4. I really need to get some fall Bath and Body Works products when they launch. That Becca bronzer looks so nice. I haven't tried any of their bronzers but I've heard great things about them.

    1. I love the tone of this one, and the fact that you can have it matte if you wanted, or you could add the sparkle of the highlighter too.
