Mid-year beauty favourites

I know we are more than half way through the year, but lets pretend we're back in June for the sake of this post...ok? LOL.
Ive discovered so many amazing products this year. Ive found some life-changing makeup & beauty items. Ok, maybe thats slightly dramatic but they've definitely changed up my makeup life for the better. So, Ive listed all of those "life-changing" products for you all. I have found some amazing perfumes and eyeshadows this year!!


Estee Lauder double wear foundation in the shade ecru. This is my new holy grail foundation! I have never, ever used a foundation that lasts so well on my skin. Its a solid 10/10 from me!

Gerard cosmetics liquid lipstick in "everything nice".

Soap & Glory Archery brow tint & precision shaping pencil. I found this eyebrow pencil because Zoe Sugg had been raving about it for such a long time. Its really is a great eyebrow pencil. I actually started to dislike it  few weeks ago but then I realised it was because I needed to buy a new one. OOPS!

Too Faced chocolate bar palette. I bought this eyeshadow palette back in January out of some christmas money I had, (thank you Nana & Grampy!) and I used it constantly. The shadows are so buttery and pigmented and every shade is right up my alley. I'll admit, I havent used it that much in the last month or so well ever since I bought some makeup geek shadows. But this palette is still my favourite!

SEVENTEEN contour kit. This is the only contour kit I own but its soo good that I havent felt the need to try out any other ones. There was such a huge hype around this when it launched a couple of months ago which is why I caved in and bought it and I am very happy I did!

Makeup Geek eyeshadows in "creme brûlée", "bitten", "morocco" (not pictured) and "grandstand"

Makeup Geek blush plans in "soulmate" and "spellbound" (not pictured)

MAC "modesty" lipstick. This is one of my everyday lipsticks, the colour is perfect and I just love MAC cremesheen lipsticks in general. Modesty is a muted neutral pink and it goes with pretty much every makeup look although I pretty much wear the same makeup look everyday because Im boring! HAHA!

MAC mineralised skinfinish in "soft & gentle"

Benefit gimmebrow in shade number 1. This is my most recent makeup discovery and OMG it has upped my eyebrow game like 10 levels!!


La-Roche Posay targeted breakout corrector

Lush Mask of Magnaminty

YSL Black Opium eau de toilette 

Lush twilight bath bomb. This was the first bath bomb I had tried from lush and it is lovely. I understand the hype around their bath bombs now. Its a lavender scented bath bomb designed to relax your body and to aid you to having a peaceful and deep sleep. I actually use this bath bomb when Im not feeling too well & I use it in the morning so its not just a nighttime treat. 

Coconut oil- this has been a completely life changer for me. There are so many different uses for coconut oil in skincare and haircare. I actually wrote post on some of the benefits of using coconut oil  a couple of months ago. You can read that post here.

Barry M gelly nail polish in "blueberry" and "lemonade"

Marc Jacobs Daisy Blush eau de fresh. This is my famous bargain perfume I bought on the plane back from Mallorca and Ive worn it everyday since I got it and I always get compliments when I wear it. If you love sweet, floral scents this will be perfect for you. 

What are some of your favourite makeup or beauty items you've discovered this year?

Love, Becca
