July Favorites !
I'm late on the bandwagon, but I still wanted to tell you about my July favorites :-)
This month beauty loves are a mix of some french pharmacy skincare products, drugstore budget buys and 2 hair product.
Let's get started with the french skincare products :
During summer months, I don't like day creme's that are too rich or oily. The Embryolisse Lait-Crème concentré is just perfect for summer. It's light, quickly absorbent and is nicely scented :-)(which is always a plus for me when products smell good). For removing my makeup, I've started using the Caudalie Lait Démaquillant Douceur which is a make up remover milk. It's really soft for the skin and takes of my make up. I like to use it in combination with the clarisonicMia 2 (which I reviewed here). Another Caudalie product that I loved last month was the Caudalie Divine Oil for face, body & hair. This is just one of those great purse-products. By purse-rpoduct , I mean a multiple use product that you keep in your purse and goes a long way. I've been using it on my dry legs, on the ends of my hair during the day and on dry spots on my body. This Caudalie oil is starting to become a cult-product. I've seen that a lot of other bloggers like this product as well. Even the packaging is pretty!
On to budget drugstore products :
I've been using this BE creative foundation which you can buy in Belgium @ Ici Paris Xl but unfortunately I can't tell you which shade I've got because it's not mentioned on the bottle ( I receives it at the launch for the BE creative range). It's just in between low coverage and full coverage, but you can built up coverage which is always nice. I like to apply it with the real Techniques buffing brush. This brush gives such a nice natural result. I'm a real l lipstick fan, so it may come as no surprise that I have a rather large lipstick collection (being modest here :-p ) This Revlon 585 Persian Melon is the perfect hot pink shade for summer! It applies creamy but dries out as matte finish. The Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in the shade 35 On and on Bronze is the perfect cream eyeshadow. It really does not move or creases. I even love these so much that I returned to the drugstore the day after and bought me almost every color ! I find it, dare I say, even better than the MAC ones !! Yes, it's love !
My favorite bronzer of the moment is the Bo-Ho Terra Cotta bronzer which was in my Deauty box.
One thing I couldn't get enough of last month was the Nivea Hawaii flower & oil shower gel. It smells heavenly ! I rushed to the store yesterday because I saw that I almost finished it ! This Le Petit Marseillais Hydrating milk has Karité and figure oil . This also is like heaven in the bottle. Whereas the Nivea shower gell smells very fresh-like , this body lotion smells really sweet.
On to the last beauty bits : hair products. If you follow me on my instagram (@fashionwise) you might have noticed that I create a lot of hairdo's for friends & clients. I use tons of hairspray's and styling products. This Kérastase Laque Couture is a fashion hairspray. It's a light hairspray that just oozes fashion by the packaging and color. It's one of those beauty products which you can perfectly do without and buy a cheaper one but is so nice to have : a luxury item :-) . Lately I've been lacking volume in my hair, that's why I used this L'Oréal Professionnel Volumetry spray. It smells amazing and adds a bit of volume to my roots . This baby comes with me wherever I go :-)
