July Favourites

Marisa Robinson Makeup Artist July Favourites

Another month, another round of favourites! I had so many makeup faves in July as well as a couple of fab finds which I am loving and can't live without!

Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Brow Pencil*
Benefit have definitely changed the brow game for me! I was an ABH Brow Wiz girl through and through and had tried other products but nothing compared until I met the Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Brow Pencil! What I love most about this brow pencil is the shape of the custom tip. It has a pointed end to define (perfect for the tail of the brow) and a wider tip to fill the brows - it is definitely Goof Proof by name and nature and saves me so much time when I am doing my brows each morning!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation*
I am going to share something with you that I haven't admitted to many people - this is the first drug store foundation I have ever used! And you know what? I LOVE IT! I hate to sound like a foundation snob but I always just veered towards M.A.C or Make Up For Ever but I am so glad I stepped outside of my comfort zone and tried this! I love the formula, it sits so nicely on my skin and provides a full coverage, two qualities I always look for in a good foundation. And as the name suggests it is long lasting! I generally always set my foundation with a setting powder but I have been enjoying wearing this without for a more dewy complexion. Plus it's only $18.95 (as opposed to my normal $50 foundation price tag) so it doesn't break the bank!

Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Sweets' Glow Kit
My ABH Glow Kit obsession continues! I already had 'That Glow' and 'Gleam' in my collection so when the 'Sweets' version was released I didn't hesitate to add it to my cart! My two favourite shades I am loving from this palette are 'Taffy' and 'Butterscotch'. They look gorgeous worn solo but I am obsessed with mixing them together and dusting them over the apples of my cheeks as well as my cheekbones for that sun kissed glow!

Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette
With the July launch of this palette in Australia, I wouldn't be surprised if the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette made it onto every beauty gurus favourites list this month! As a long time fan of the 'Champagne Pop' highlighter I was dying to get my hands on this palette to try kid sister highlighter 'Prosecco Pop' and it was just as beautiful as I had imagined (or seen while stalking Jaclyn on Snapchat!). I love mixing the two highlighters together and the three blushes in the palette complement them beautifully! I believe it has now sold out in Oz so there are A LOT of heavenly highlights beaming throughout the nation!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
As I try more and more liquid liners I realise how much I can't live without my KVD Tattoo Liner! The precise tip and fluid formula glides on like a dream to create any eye line your heart desires. The tip is the ideal shape to create the perfect wing or fine line which you can then build up to your desired thickness. Definitely my ride or die, it is going to take something VERY special to come close to this baby!

Tarte Cosmetics tarteist™ Lash Paint Mascara*
I was lucky enough to be gifted this at the Sephora Showcase last month and I have used it almost every day since! The jet black formula coats my lashes from root to tip and lasts all day, without any transfer or smudging, but it is the soft bristle wand I am obsessed with! It gives my lashes SO much volume (apparently increasing lash volume by 2700% instantly) and length and I find that when I turn the wand around and use a different edge it separates the lashes and creates a beautiful, full look.

LUSH Golden Handshake Hand Mask
If you caught my latest blog post you will already know how much I love a Golden Handshake! I used this for the first time last week and my hands are still feeling super soft and smooth like it was only yesterday! The mask contains avocado, argan and castor oil as well as fresh capuacu and murumuru butters to hydrate the skin. I definitely think I am going to do this once a month as part of my skincare routine to keep my hands feeling this way because they have never felt better!

Filled With Love Soy Candle Co
No beauty room is complete without a gorgeous scented candle and I am obsessed with the beautiful range from Filled With Love Soy Candle Co! So much so I just placed another order so that I have a back up supply at all times! So far my favourites are Island Sunset (crisp fruity grapes blended with grape leaf and light musk with additional top notes of lemon & lime, middle notes of violet & geranium) and Sweet Pea + Jasmine (sweet pea and white jasmine combine to create the ultimate in floral elegance. With the delicate additions of watermelon and cucumber this uplifting fragrance is perfectly balanced) but I also received a free Watermelon tea light which smells incredible! They come in all different sizes and styles - my personal favourite is the Luxe Collection which come in an opaque jar with your choice of lid: rose gold, gold or silver - no surprises that I chose rose gold!
