July Favourites

I can't believe August is almost here! Summer has gone so quickly: June was spent planning the wedding and then I spent half of July traveling and I don't know where the other half went! August isn't necessarily the end of summer and I do hope we have many warm days still ahead of us. But can I start to be just a little bit excited of autumn already? Maybe I should try and restrain myself.

July was actually a very non-makeup month. Especially the week I spent in Florida. No makeup needed in that heat, to be honest with you! But in New York and here, back at home, I have been enjoying some very nice products.

Makeupwise I would like to mention a couple of amazing products. The first one is the so much loved Naked palette by Urban Decay. And specifically the shade half baked. It is just so gorgeous! And perfect for summer evenings. I don't think I've been wearing too many other shades this month actually... It goes so well with a bit of coral shaded blusher and some pink lipstick.

Which brings me to my next favourite product: Bobbi Brown lip color in the shade #73 or pale mauve. I bought this lipstick for my wedding and I love it for it's shade and permanence. It was perfect for my bridal makeup but I love wearing it on ordinary days too.

The third makeup product is also one of my purchases for the wedding day. It is an eyeliner by Dior. This eyeliner is perfect for summer days because it is waterproof and very light. I don't like to wear loads of black makeup in the summer, but I still want to define my eyes a bit and this is just great for that purpose. 

Then onto skincare. I have one product, which has been over the top this month and it's the Mask of Magnaminty by LUSH. I think I've used it every time I've had a shower this month. It feels very energizing on the skin and leaves it so soft. And the smell of mint is scrumptious!

I have gel nails at the moment because I got them for my wedding day, but I have been polishing them myself after the wedding. I guess I got a bit bored of the bridal pink :D but anyway, my favourite nail polish this month has definitely been Essie's Tart Deco. It is so summery! It reminds me of the art deco buildings at Miami Beach and at the same time of peaches. So pretty!

Hair products have been on a surprisingly minimal use this month as well. Alas I did manage to find a new favorite hairspray from the US. Of course they don't sell it in Finland, which is just my luck. Dove could you please do something about it? Pretty please?

These were my favourites this month! What did you enjoy using in July?

P.S. How annoying is it to try and write favourite when obviously I have American auto-correcting on? :D 


  1. Hasn't the time just flown by? Soon it will be August, and the thought of it is incredibly distressing for me!
    I love the Bobbi Brown lipstick, definitely one for the wishlist!

    I loved this post, I think it's so easy to get caught up in it all and we can easily loose sight of why we started it in the first place, as a hobby and a creative outlet. It's good to feel passionate and want to create the best content that we can, but getting wrapped up in stats definitely takes the fun out of it! If it's any consolation, I think you're doing a great job anyway!

      And yes, time had flown by so fast! But, if you look on the positive side, I guess that's what happens when you're having fun. :)


Thanks for commenting and have a lovely day<3 xxx
