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 ÂŁ3.49. 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!

NYC 16H Lipstain 493 Champagne Stain

Hi there! Today’s post is about my NYC 16H Lipstain in 493 Champagne Stain. I would describe the shade as a cool and soft fuchsia. And I love it. It’s pretty and wearable – I couldn’t ask for more. The product dries quickly once applied, and it really doesn’t wear off. Yes, the colour does somewhat fade, but I can get away with only one touch up during the way. Brilliant!

The pointy tip is great for precise application and the subtle scent of apricots is very pleasant. The only thing that I would mention as a negative is that this product is a bit drying. I use lip balms all the time when I’m not wearing lipstick (or lipstain), but I don’t think that I could wear this lipstain for more than three days in a row if I weren’t such a lip balm nut.

Still, I really love this product! NYC 16H Lipstains have been discontinued – but they’ve hit the Poundstores, so you can get these for ÂŁ1 each. I bought quite a few! 🙂
