It's the last day of July (where the time has gone??) and time for me to share with you 5 products I enjoyed using most in the last month.
In June I bought quite a few new make up items and some of them took place of the previous favourites like new eye shadow palette or blusher. I've reviewed most of them so you probably know already I love them but that's why they deserve the spot in the 'Monthly Favourites' post :)

Before I started blogging I wasn't a big lipstick fan, I much preferred some nude lip gloss and had in total maybe 5 coloured lip products.
But that has changed. A lot!
Couple of months ago I decided to buy some Summer appropriate lipsticks and my new addiction somehow started. There are so many amazing shades of lip products that it would be rude not to pick up at least some of them:)
Recently I noticed in my local Boots some new lip glosses/lipsticks from L'Oreal and after swatching them I knew I had to get at least one.
L'Oreal GlamMatte Intense Gloss in Cherry Crop (RRP £7.99) was the one I've chosen.

Hope you all had great weekend! I certainly did! Me and my family are trying to enjoy the most we can all those sunny, hot days we are having currently in UK. Part of the weekend we spent in Bournemouth, relaxing on its beautiful beaches, while the boys were having blast playing in the sand and water.
So what better colour to wear on my nails than beautiful sea green/turquoise that screams Summer holidays :)

With the latest issue of Marie Claire UK there were fantastic freebies from Balance Me. I hadn't tried anything from the brand but read lots of good things about them so when I saw the magazine with 'Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm' I got it without any hesitation.
Balance Me is a British brand established in 2005 who produces skincare products made from 100% natural ingredients. Their products won many awards and are highly praised by beauty enthusiasts.
I was very excited to try the 'Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm' and, oh boy, I am so glad I did it!
I fell in love with this cleansing balm!

I'm talking to you today about another eye shadow palette from Makeup Revolution. This time the palette is from the new line of products called I ♡ Makeup. I'm getting really obsessed with eye make up from this brand as they're very affordable but great quality. And the new palette is not exception. In fact 'Death by Chocolate' have, in my opinion, the best quality eye shadows I've tried from Makeup Revolution and much better than many other drugstore offerings I've used.
And the packaging?... How cute is this! It does look like chocolate bar, my 3 year old son wanted to have a piece of THIS chocolate when he saw it :) And if you're wondering if it smells like chocolate I'm happy to tell you that when you open the sturdy case and smell the eye shadows you can definitely feel the scent of cocoa, so yes, it does smell like chocolate :)

On my recent visit to Boots I spotted this Maybelline Color Show nail polish in Pink Slip and decided to get it as it's a bit different from all the pinks in my ever so growing nail polish collection.
I paired it with Rimmel I love Lasting Finish in Your Majesty as they both have similar metallic finish.

When it comes to my hair care I'm not very fussy and not much bothered about too many hair care products. I just need shampoo, conditioner, some volumizing product, hairspray, that's it, simple.
Of course I still want to try and test different shampoos etc. but I'm just not crazy about them.
For years I've had my hair mid length or short and in general they're in good condition. But recently I've noticed that it is quite dull and dry to touch which is not a surprise as I wash it nearly every day and dry it with hair dryer. So instead of buying another shampoo for normal, greasy hair, as usual, I picked something for dry, dull hair.

Makeup Revolution recently released a new line of cosmetics called I ♡ Makeup which brings us lots of new products with message that make up should be fun.
The prices are slightly higher than the original line but still very affordable.
When I saw all the new things on the website I had to place the order and try some of them. There was no doubt I had to get this beautiful Triple Baked Blusher which resembles a lot the much more expensive Too Faced Sweetheart Blush.

I really enjoy reading other girls' skincare routines as it's what works best for them and they're happy with it meaning, if their skin is similar type to mine, their recommendations are very valuable to me. So I decided to share with you my evening skincare routine hoping some of you might find some products interesting. I switch things up in the morning a lot, and still looking for the best products for my skin but the evening routine is the one I'm most consistent with and it works for me quite well. All these products I've been using for at least two months so I know they are suitable for my skin and I'm happy with the way my skin looks.
For reference, I have oily but also dehydrated skin with occasional dry patches. I don't get many breakouts, maybe just one or two around THAT time of the month or after too many days of eating too much junk food;) My main skin concerns are large, congested pores and uneven skin tone.

I'm pretty sure that at this point in time everyone interested in make up has heard about the new budget friendly British brand Makeup Revolution London. And you've seen probably lots of blog posts from different bloggers reviewing their products.
Recently Makeup Revolution released many new eye shadow palettes, and as I am self confessed eye-shadow-holic I had to treat myself to a few.
Today I am going to tell you my thoughts on Eyes Like Angels Ultra Professional Eye Shadow Palette (RRP £8).

My today's manicure is a bit different from my recent bright corals and pinks. Dark raspberry colour that looks kind of red depending on light. Orly Soul Mate. I absolutely love this shade and in my opinion is perfect for any season, any weather.

Another 'Empties' post, it seems like I'm going through beauty products very fast! I kind of like to finish one product before starting another. But still have usually 2 of each kind in use, so many products to try, so little time!

I can not believe we are already half way through the year! Where's the time gone? But I love Summer, long, warm days, BBQs, holidays, picnics, sandals, floaty dresses ... so I'm really happy it's July already!
It's come the time to talk to you about beauty products I enjoyed the most throughout June. I'm still loving my May Favourites but these are new things I've been reaching for and enjoying a lot recently.
