Beauty Loves of July 2012

I always forget to do these types of posts so here is my *first* loves of the month of July and its slightly late (oops!).
 Here is the list of stuff I have been loving this month:  

Kiehls midnight recovery eye cream
I only picked this up in July but it has made it on to this list. I tried a sample of it before and I was amazed at how lovely it was. I can't say if it has sorted out my wrinkles, BUT my eye area is much more nourished and looks nicer in the morning.

balance Me Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve
This was free in this month's Glamour mag and after one application I shot out and got another one. It claims to: 'plump, smooth and hydrate' which is most definitely does.
This is such a beautiful lip product, it has even replaced my Carmex (and that is saying something).  Its a 100% natural, which is something I am becoming more and more interested/concerned about in terms of skincare.
I love the applicator and it smells good (very rosy). I apply it for bed and my lips have thanked me for it.
Real Techniques Detailer Brush
This is part of the Core Collection which I got as I never had any proper make up brushes. I never really wore foundation but I am beginning to and love this set of brushes. I hear a huge hype around the buffing brush (which is understandable, it is truly remarkable) but I personally love the detailer brush for concealing blemishes or small areas of the face, it does such a good job in concealing blemishes and redness around my nose.

CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara
One of my all time favourite products. My aunt from Canada originally bought this for me when she visited last and have been holding onto this one for about a year (unopend, of course). This is my last one, sad times, but I managed to ask her to send me some over, so I felt it was the right time to open it ;) I seriously love this mascara, it is the only mascara that I get compliments on. My eyelashes are straight but slant down a bit, so I need something that will hold a curl fairly well and this works for me and plus it adds tonnes of volume.

MAC Eye Kohl in Phone Number
This is one of my long lost products and I rediscovered it this month. I actually hated this when I originally bought it, but then again I never gave it a chance.
Its like a charcoal grey with a silver sheen running through it, the glitter particles are really fine. I use this on the days where I don't want a heavy look but still want some definition. This does smudge but I found that when I applied it to my waterline it stayed in place and it is quite pigmented.
So there you have it, my favourites of July 2012.

Thanks for reading! :)
