5 beauty favourites | July 2014
Lush Brazened Honey Fresh Facemask - I believe this is meant to be a revitalising mask, it's the second one I've tried after asking the sales assistants which ones they recommend for oily skin and I think I prefer this to the previous one I tried, Love Lettuce. It makes your skin feel refreshed, and I find really brightens dull skin (which I find goes hand in hand with oiliness). I try and use it a couple of times a week, as the fresh facemasks from Lush have about a 2 week shelf life.
MUA Luxe Powerbrow - Now onto two products I won in the lovely Cat's (her blog is here) giveaway. I can't believe how good this is for the price (£3!!), this shade is slightly too dark for my brows but it is wearable if I'm feeling a strong brow, I will definitely be getting this in the lighter shade. The brow part is super thin so you can make detailed strokes, and also comes with a highlighter stick the other end to highlight the brow arch.
MUA Luxe Precision felt eyeliner - I would definitely say this a dupe for Soap&Glory's Supercat eyeliner pen, maybe better than it. Both require an eye primer to get the super black colour to come out properly, the product itself is pretty identical, asides from this MUA one has a slightly harder, more pointed felt brush so you get a bit more control to make cat eye flicks.
Lush Grease Lightning spot treatment - You can read my review of this HERE. I recently tested this against an Estee Lauder spot treatment on two blemishes, the next morning the spot I used Grease Lightning on was far more reduced. Completely renewed my love for this product.
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume lifting mascara - I recently ran out of my current mascara so decided to use up unopened mascara testers in my make up box, picked this one out and the volumising of the lashes with it is seriously good. It coats well and gives my fairly average length lashes a bit of a boost.
These monthly posts make me realise how quickly time flies, I can't believe we're now in August - it's only just under two months that I move to Japan! What have you guys been loving beauty wise this month? xx
