July Favourites

I've put off this months favourite's post because normally I have a ton of products to show you all, this month however I've pretty much been using the same stuff I do however have a teeny tiny collection of favourites.
First up, although you wouldn't be able to tell as all of the writing has rubbed off, it is Sleek's Luminaire concealer I use the shade "L01" when I first used this I wasn't much of a lover, it was thick and gloopy and stopped working for a while but then ta-daa it began to work and I've been using it ever since. I find it hard to blend in the concealer with the brush attached but it's the only bad thing I can think of about this product and something which is easily fixed by just using a concealer brush!
Next is my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Light, I really like this it's a lightweight powder which I use to set my liquid foundation, it gives my face a lovely finish and gets rid of the few shiny bits I get and doesn't even make my skin look dry and flaky, woo!
Recently because I am in desperate need of getting my eyebrows done I have been using Elf's eyebrow kit from the studio line, to disguise my horrible eyebrows! I bought this a loooong(!) time ago and use it very regularly and it's not even nearly been used up, you can't even see a smidgen of "pan". This was £3.50 and is nice and compact with a useless little mirror and a decent double-ended brush. Even though I'm blonde my eyebrow kit is in "Medium" because I have naturally quite dark eyebrows, however I use this kit very, very lightly with a heavy hand this might not look so hot!
Surprise Surprise!! Soleil Tan de Chanel, I am loving this. Having had my first ever experience with a spray tan my base make up was way too light for my sunkissed skin ;) so this has been lovely both when I'm at my usual paleness and when tanned - I love how it makes my skin look. I completely recommend this beauty it's become one of my most favourite things ever!
QVS Duo Fibre Brush, I love this. It was only around £8 and I love it, so far I've experience no shedding. I've used this both for foundation and my Chanel cream bronzer (above), I prefer using it with cream products rather than my liquid foundation, I'm going to buy another one of these brushes for my cream blushes!
Finally, the last item I am including in my July favourites was actually a freebie! I got this Nails Inc nail polish in the shade "Copacabana" free after buying two Dove deodorants (which are my favourites anyway) and since getting it I've worn this nail colour non-stop. It's a beautiful coral colour, unlike anything else in my collection and I love it!
