July Favourites

july favourites

July favourites, including a response to some of the comments on my Best Budget Foundations video and one new product that I just don’t get. I don’t usually include dislikes in my favourites videos (mainly because they are supposed to be about things I love) but this particular product really took me by surprise.

You’ll have to click play to find out what it is – as usual all of the products are listed below the video pane. Enjoy!

    I am quite keen to try the NYR cleanser and funnily enough almost all of your recommendations have wended their way into my stash at one time or another. Interestingly I decided to google any other reviews and found your review from a couple of years ago – there was also another review on another blog that has copied your review word for word – how bloody rude. It is on a blog called calamity jane’s beauty blog. Don’t feel you have to publish this comment Ruth but it really angers me when someone can’t be arsed to write their own thoughts however vacuous or boring they maybe! Thanks as always for your words.

    I’m finding the Becca way too shiny for me! I need to try it with my more matte foundations as I tend to gravitate towards satin to dewy.

    And don’t you look great in that video! Your hair colour in particular is so lovely, summer holiday-like! I loved this video and that shirt is amazing.
    I wondered, if you could do a video about brushes, foundation brushes in particular. I’m really close to buying the double-ended foundation/concealer brush from Bobbi Brown that you mentioned once, but it is quite a lot of money, so I wondered whether you even till use it!

      Yes, it’s REALLY good! Also the Louise Young LY34, but I reckon BB is better. Zoeva do a good dupe for the BB one, but the BB still better! x
