July Beauty Awards

Hi there! I can’t believe it’s the end of the month. Time really flies! And now’s already the time to look at my monthly favourites. Of all the new products I’ve tried this month, these are the ones I liked the most. 🙂

3rd place – Superdrug Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15 For Normal Skin
Superdrug Refreshing Day Cream SPF 15
I think this cream is very nice. It has SPF 15, and it’s great for dry skin too – and it’s only £3.49. This is the ultimate no-nonsense moisturiser.

Runner-Up – I Heart MakeUp Go! To The City Palette
I Heart MakeUp Go To The City 1
I really like this palette. It contains a highlighter, two blushes and six eyeshadows. I’m happy with the quality and I know I’ll be using this palette a lot.

WINNER – NYC 16H Lipstain 493 Champagne Stain
NYC 16h Lipstain 493 Champagne Stain 03
I think NYC did a fantastic job with this lip stain. The product is a bit drying when I use it for a few days in a row. But I love the colour, the formula, and the finished look which is essentially a ‘my lips but better’ look. What’s not to love?

I’d like to throw in a few honourable mentions as well. I really love Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Micro Polish and Yves Rocher’s Apple and Star Anise products. I think Boots’ Vitamin Recovery Mask is brilliant, and I’m enjoying my I Love… shower products.

Have you tried any of these products? Or have you discovered any new beauty favourites recently? Please feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for stopping by!

I Heart MakeUp Go! To The City Palette

Hi there! I got myself this I Heart MakeUp Go! To The City palette when it was on sale for £1.99 a while ago. It’s sad when a good product is about to be discontinued. But I have to admit I love picking up soon-to-be-discontinued products when they’re on sale. But who doesn’t? 🙂 Now let’s take a closer look at this palette.
I Heart MakeUp Go To The City 1
The Go! To The City palette a contains 2 blushers, 1 highlighter and 6 eyeshadows. The highlighter (H) is shimmery and nicely pigmented. I’ll be using it a lot, I think. The blushes – coral (B1) and pink (B2) – are very pretty. They’re well pigmented and the colours really pop.

I do like the eyeshadows too. The first shade is a matte light beige. All the other shades are shimmery – some of them almost metallic. They’re easy to blend and the pigmentation is a dream. However, I noticed that all these eyeshadows are featured in a different palette, namely I Heart MakeUp’s Passion palette. So if you have the Passion palette, you don’t really need this one.
I Heart MakeUp Go To The City 3
Now let’s have one more look at the palette. Isn’t it pretty? And everything looks so organised and neat. OK, it won’t look like this for long, but for the moment it does and I’m enjoying it. 🙂
I Heart MakeUp Go To The City 2
If you fancy I Heart MakeUp’s Go! To The City palette, you’ll have to look online because it appears that both Superdrug and MakeUp Revolution no longer sell it.

As always, feel free to comment if you like. And if you have this palette, please let me know what you think. And thanks for reading!
