Faves and Fail(s) for June/July 2017

I’m a bit late in getting this out but I’ve just got back from a glorious week in Malta!


First in my favourites in an absolute winner: the Urban Decay Velvetizer I don’t know how I’ll live without this fine, mattifying mix-in powder. I’ve used it as both a mix in with foundation powder as well as a setting powder. The velvety feel on my skin remained through most of the day and I felt that my makeup stayed in place a lot longer than normal, especially during the heatwave we experienced a few weeks ago.

Marula oil Intensive hair masque: check out my short review on this as part of the Sophistique box received. I will definitely be buying this hair masque again!

Rituals Express Your Soul foaming shower gel: this limited summer edition leaves you feeling refreshed and smelling fresh as a flower. Be sure to get yours before they run out!

Neutrogena Hydra Boost cleansing facial wipes: these moist, hydrating wipes not only removes makeup (including lip stain) but leaves the skin feeling moist and almost nourished in a way. After receiving my first tester in the Pinkbox, I’ve been out to buy it twice since and will recommend to anyone. **tip ** be sure to keep the package properly sealed as it will dry out. I lay mine facedown on the bathroom counter to be extra sure. On those nights when you’re too tired or lazy to remove the day’s makeup, then this definitely the solution for you.

IMG_2549My only fail is the Katy Kat Eyes mascara by Maybeline. I found this clumpy and super thick and heavy on my lashes and while trying to remove or brush out product it only added more. Also the brush is a really odd shape, almost spiral for which i couldn’t see any added benefit.
