Monthly Favourites: July

Hey everyone! Second post from me tonight, I'm trying to get all my posts scheduled and written as I'm going on holiday in 6 hours (so excited but very tired). I really can't believe how fast this month has gone! Seems only a few days ago when I was writing my monthly favourites for June, and now we're here again, with a bunch of new products that I cant wait to show you. Again, I have five products, not necessarily all nail related, and not necessarily all review samples, these are products that I genuinely have loved this month. In no particular order the products are:

Me Me Me Cosmetics Coral Blush Me and Divine Mascara*. This is a completely new brand to me, and I must admit that I'm always a bit sceptical of new brands. I'm the kind of girl who sticks to what she knows. But as soon as I tried these, I fell in love. The mascara especially is amazing. I really prefer mascaras that don't make my eyelashes look all thick and this is just brilliant for that. It might even replace my trusty Clinique mascara which I've used for years.

Real Techniques Core Collection Kit. These aren't exactly a new revelation in the blogging world, and I have wanted this kit for absolutely ages. A couple of weeks ago I finally took the plunge and decided to buy them. I have such a random selection of make up brushes and nothing very helpful, I often just apply my foundation with my fingers. But these have transformed my life, genuinely, I'm in love. There are 4 brushes in the collection but I find the detailer brush to be a bit useless for what I want really. My favourite of these three is probably the buffer brush and it's great, I'm so glad I spent a bit more than I usually would.

Models Own - Pear Drops*. You might have seen this in my review the other day, and I mentioned that it would be making an appearance here. The formula is flawless, it smells lovely, and it dries super fast. What more could you want from a polish?

Body Shop - Fijan Water Lotus Body Lotion and Eau de Toilette*. Fragrances are a hard one to describe, but even from the name it's obvious that this one smells amazing. It's such a gorgeous summery scent, and both of these are currently packed away in my suitcase ready for my holiday! As with most Body Shop products, these are also really reasonably priced, at £10 for the lotion and a full 50ml bottle of the Eau de Toilette for £16, I'll definitely be repurchasing. Although I reckon the body lotion will last a while!

Zoya - Rocha*. I will have swatches of this up when I get back from holiday, and it's an absolutely gorgeous shade. I know all the polishes featured in my monthly favourites so far have been orange/coral but they're just such a good colour for summer. This is opaque in 2 easy coats and it looks brill. This is also my first ever Zoya, which makes it that little bit more special!

What do you think? Have you tried any of these products? Or do you want to? Let me know in the comments!
