July 2015 Beauty Favourites: Review

July 2015 Beauty Favourites
Woohoo!~ With the overwhelming number of beauty brands in the market, it is no wonder we consumers are all spoilt for choices! So… What made into my July 2015 Beauty Favourites? 😉 As usual, there is an equal emphasis placed on skincare and makeup products for this month and it wasn’t easy narrowing down to these 6 items, so let’s get into them, shall we?
Remember the LANEIGE (reformulated) Sleeping Mask that I was excitedly talking about the last time? I cannot be happier to have the LANEIGE Mini Pore Waterclay Mask join my family of masks to protect my skin! With a mud-clay texture but a watery consistency, this clay mask helps a lot in removing skin impurities, while tightening the pores. Even though this may make your skin feel a little tight when it dries, the feeling of tautness goes away after washing off the mask. Full review here.

Born with sensitive skin, it’s not easy to find products that work for a long time. The Body Shop recently relaunched their Drops of Youth™ Concentrate, a serum that’s created to reverse the first signs of aging. I haven’t got to reviewing this proper so I guess I’ll just pen my thoughts here!
The serum is rather thick in consistency, so a little goes a long way for your entire face. It absorbs quickly without leaving any feeling of stickiness as well, given its viscosity. Enriched with plant stem cells, the product helps to optimise your skin’s youthful beauty by helping to enhance surface skin renewal – the skin’s natural process of replacing the uppermost dead skin cells with new ones beneath. Indeed, this is one of those products that gives you smoother, firmer and healthier skin! 🙂
Enough with the skincare, let’s get into our favourite, makeup!
I have talked about this countless number of times and I cannot emphasise enough how much I adore the LANEIGE BB Cushion Pore Control! The original whitening one doesn’t suit my skin but this, this is so good that I have finished at least 3 cushion refills already! It is semi-matte, gives a decent coverage and lasts all day!
The one that’s shown below is the Whitening BB Cushion by the LANEIGE x Play No More collection which will be launched in September!~ Stay tuned!
I have always been loyal to my Urban Decay Primer Potion if you haven’t realised by now. Lately, my UDPP has been stashed aside to give way to the Inglot Eye Shadow Keeper. It comes in a small black tube indicative of the Inglot brand and has a lighter texture. It dispenses as a beigey substance but blends colourless on the lids. As the name suggests, this allows you to keep your eyeshadows in place for the entire day!
A new blush that I am obsessed with is the Too Faced Love Flush 16-Hour Long Lasting Blush. With the heart-shaped packaging and the beautiful bunnies details, need I say more? The name of the blush says it all as well, it needs no explanation! Full review and swatches of all the shades here if you wish!
And of course, I can’t live without a lipstick. July was being obsessed over sheer but moisturising lipsticks and the one that topped my chart is none other than the Givenchy Le Rouge-A-Porter in 206 Corail Decollete. It comes in a sleek leather casing, with a very moisturising formula, what else can you not love about this?
Do you already love any of the products mentioned here? If so, let me know in the comments below! Till next time!~
Create yourself and be gorgeous! ♡
XOXO, Roanna.

  1. Nice favorites! I'm not a big fan of the Le Rouge from Givenchy. Is this A-Porter version better? I know they are different in consistency, but the Le Rouge one is drying on my lips. This one should be better in moisturizing department, yes?

  2. Hi Lenny! Yes this is definitely so much more moisturising than the original version because I think those are supposed to be mattes/semi-mattes? But note that the Le Rouge-A-Porter ones are very sheer. So, do test them out before you get them! 🙂
