A little late, but I thought I'd do my July favourites today, I left my camera charger at my boyfriends so haven't been able to take photos of anything for over a week, what a blogging nightmare! Better late than never hey!? Here's my July favourites-

My first product worth mentioning is the Soap & Glory Sugarcrush Body Wash, this stuff is amazing! It smells sooooo good! This is perfect for the Summer months with it's fruity lime scent and fresh energy boosting goodness. I even took this on holiday with me despite the hefty bottle weighing a fare bit. Some of the goodies inside this one include lime oil, kiwi juice water, omega 3 rich rapeseed oil and Soap & Glory's COOLCAPSULE X, which will leave you feeling so silky smooth you won't be able to stop stroking yourself (in a totally innocent way of course!). Just a few squirts of this and the gorgeous zesty scent hits you instantly waking you up, to me it smells a lot like those little cola cube sweets! This is the second bottle I have purchased, now that says something when you choose the same one again over all the other gorgeous Soap & Glory washes. This is definitely my Summer body wash go to.

I have said so many times how the lasting finish Kate lipsticks have been my favourite drug store lipstick range forever, so it's no surprise that Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate 32 made it in to July's favourites. I wore this lipstick every night whilst in Tunisia, it is the perfect Summer orange. It's orange without being too orange if you know what I mean! It's a very fun bright but subtle shade that works so well to brighten a look up. Of course the formula is gorgeous just like all the lasting finish lippy's. It's moisturising, pigmented, long lasting and smells great. If you're looking for a cheap. but high quality Summer shade then go for this. It's great for someone who wants to try the orange lip craze, but is afraid to go bright, this is a great pale orange to start of with.

Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara has also been a staple for me this month. It's great at adding volume without clogging up your lashes, it really defines the lashes whilst lengthening. The mini brush for your lower lashes is also a great feature to have, as it adds a little length and definition without being too much. You can read more about this mascara here in my review.

Not only was July holiday month for me but it's also Birthday month, yay! I hit the big 21 this year and thought I'd spoil myself a little and ordered myself the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Diffused Heat. I've been lusting to have one of these gorgeous golden beauties in my collection for a long time now, they just look so luxurious and sophisticated with the sleek golden packaging and two toned hand made infusion of shades. The blush itself is soooo soft and finely milled, but at the same time it's very highly pigmented. You don't need a lot to go a long way. The finish is beautiful giving you a soft radiant glow, I cant wait to try some more shades.

To go along with my gorgeous Ambient Lighting Blush, I have been using my Real Techniques Blush Brush. I have fell in love with this brush all over again. Originally I used this for my powder, as it felt like the perfect size. Trying this with the Ambient Lighting Blush is just amazing though. The brush of course is super soft, paired with the lightweight finely milled powder is perfection.

Another one that I have been dying to get for since it came out is the Too Faced Pardon My French Neautral Eyeshadow Collection 2014. This is the most gorgeous little neutral palette with glittery champagnes, bronzes and chocolates, and matte creams and browns. What more do you need from a neutral palette!? I love champagnes and bronzes, so have been wanting this since I saw it. As my 21st was coming up, I thought I'd treat myself once again. The eye shadows themselves are very pigmented and gorgeous to use, they are soft and silky and very blendable. I love all of the shades in this palette which can be pretty hard to find! This is definitely going to be a good staple in my collection for a long time.

As you know it was my 21st this month, so me and my boyfriend Chris went on a huge shopping spree to celebrate. I was very lucky and Chris treated me to lots of gorgeous things including the YSL Rouge Volupté Shine 13 Pink In Paris. I have been wearing this a lot since I got it. I already have Pink In Confidence, so I knew I loved the shiny, sheer finish, but I wanted a brighter colour as I wear these more often. So I chose 13, Pink In Paris. This is a gorgeous glossy pink that isn't too much. I like to think of it as a more sophisticated bright pink lip. I wear this everyday as it's a fun bright colour for the summer. Of course the first ting that attracted me to the Rouge Volupté Shine range was the gorgeous golden packaging, it's so elegant and beautiful you can't help but want to whip it out to re-apply whenever you're out and about. If you want to see what other gorgeous gifts I got for my 21st, take a look at my HUGE 21st Birthday Beauty Haul .
