July Favourites!

Hello lovelies! 

First of all I would just like to apologize for no favourites for June. In June I never really tried anything new, so there was nothing for me to put into my favourites and I didn't want to just gather any old products and chuck them in, so I decided to leave it for a month.

 Three of these products are new and I have had one for quite a while now. I know four items might not be much of a favourites, but these are the products that I have been loving through July.

Not the best picture in the world - apologies

Sleek - i Divine Au Naturel
I bought this a while back and never really used it, the first time I really used it was for my prom and after I used it for that I may have fallen in love with the shade on the top right which is a bronze shimmer. I haven't used all of the colours yet, but I'm loving using the third shade on the top left over my lid which is a matte very light brown with the bronze shimmer in the crease, and as the two shades aren't two dark they are great for a daytime look and are very natural. The first shade on the top left I use as a highlighter which I put on my brow bone which makes the eyes more noticeable and I use it in the inner corner of my eyes which is great for really brightening the eyes and making them appear bigger.

Bourjois - Healthy mix serum foundation
When I tested this foundation in boots the first thing I noticed was the smell; it smells amazing! It literally smells like a scented sun cream that you'd use when you were little; it's great! I have the shade 51 - light vanilla and it is a good match for my skin tone, as it looks very natural and I love how it has a matte finish, so there's no chance of looking shiny. It also lasts a long time as well and I can get through the entire day without thinking that it has faded or that I have gone patchy.

Barry M - Gelly hi-shine - Blue grape
I don't know why I didn't buy one of these when they first came out. I knew I wanted a nail polish that wasn't matte and had a shine to it, so I immediately thought of trying a hi-shine and it did not disappoint! The pigmentation of this is perfection! I only needed two coats until a good solid colour had built up.I also find that this polish lasts a long time without chipping which is a great bonus!

Carmex - moisturising lip balm

I have a love hate relationship with this lip balm, it shouldn't be a favourite, bit it is. The reason is that it burns; I'm not going to lie and I'm not being dramatic, but it literally burns for a couple of minutes after I've put it on. The burning does fade after a couple of minutes. Now you're probably wondering why it's in my favourites if it burns, but it does it's job. It claims to soothe, relieve and moisturise; it may not soothe, but it definitely moisturises. 


  1. Alright, this is totally irrelevant, but I was reading your 'About' page, and your blog name totally reminded me of the show 'Secret Diary of a Call Girl' because the girl's name is also Hannah and she goes by 'Belle' and yeah ._.''

    ANYWAYS, I love how your favourites are all 'classic' UK brands, haha. I'm dying to get my hands on that Bourjois foundation; heard lots of lovely thing about it!
