July 2016 Beauty Favourites

Allow me to be that person that has to point out how fast time is going by. So, seriously, where is time going? How are we half done with 2016? I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in.. time’s up – let me share with you my favourites for July. Although there are a few new favourites, the majority are rediscoveries.

L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Masks – Detox and Purity

As my drugstore week draws to an end (don’t worry, I will be bringing you many more affordable options as I’ve had great response), I bring to you my thoughts on the remainder two Pure Clay Masks from L’Oreal’s new range.

L’Oréal Paris Glam Bronze Cushion Soleil

Earlier this week I reviewed L’Oreal’s Cushion Nude Magique Foundation, and today I bring to you L’Oreal’s Glam Bronze Cushion de Soleil – basically a liquid bronzer in the cushion compact.

L’Oreal have really set the bar with this concept as it is the first of its kind that is relatively affordable. The compact is the exact same as L’Oreal’s Cushion Nude Magique Foundation only that…
