It's the first of the month and that can only mean one monthly beauty favourites! I hope everyone had an incredible July, mine was really relaxed as I had the whole month off for University break which was awesome. I found some new products that I absolutely love so have some exciting items to share in this month's favourites. Watch the video HERE :)
So this was definitely the best package I received in the mail this month, Maybelline really outdid themselves with this incredible advent calendar inspired Christmas in July package. Showcasing all of their mid year product releases, I actually wrote an entire blog article about it that you can take a look at by clicking the link above.

Lush Christmas in July Products
On the same note of Christmas in July, I attended the Lush event where they had a mid year release of all their Christmas products (aka as some of the best products Lush offers). We're in the midst of Winter and so it's definitely bath season, resulting in my addiction to Lush further growing. No products in particular, I just thought I would mention Lush in general as a favourite since I have been using their products (that I bought up like crazy at the event) nearly everyday in July.

EOS "Sweet Mint" Lip Sphere
This is easily the most raved about lip balm on the beauty blogosphere so I don't know how it took me so long to jump on the bandwagon and get myself one but I have absolutely been loving it this month! It's not only really moisturising but the packaging is adorable and the shape of the balm is really convenient.

Mary Kay Makeup Finishing Spray
The incredible Mary Kay teamed up with the equally as amazing Skindinavia to create an incredible makeup finishing spray. I have been using this to set my makeup every time and see a noticeable difference in the vibrancy and longevity of my makeup.

Benefit Georgia Blush
So I recently went Benefit Boxed Powder crazy and went all out, purchasing five of them. My favourite blush out of the three that I picked up is definitely Georgia because it's a stunning coral shade that really brightens up my pale Winter skin.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Still on the topic of my pale skin, I have been in desperate need of bronzing lately just to look somewhat alive and have fallen in love with one of my Benefit Boxed Powder purchases, the infamous Hoola bronzer. It's a great colour and consistency, I have been using a large fluffy brush and lightly sweeping this over the side of my face and anywhere the sun would naturally hit my face.

Schwarzkopf Daily Oil Elixir 
When I ran out of my Macadamia Luxury Treatment Oil, I knew that I didn't want to fork out $50+ on a new bottle even despite how amazing it is. I headed to Priceline (any excuse to go to Priceline is good enough for me) on the search of a cheap but luxury hair oil which is where I stumbled across this lovely oil elixir by Schwarzkopf. It was a great price (about $15) and I have been absolutely loving it this month as it makes my hair so soft and manageable.

Thanks for reading ♥
