Summer Beauty Favourites

Hello everyone!

Apologies for the radio silence the last couple of months! Looks like I have returned to my student years this summer as I decided to take 2 exams and have spent every minute out of work preparing for them! One is out of the way but have one more to go so bear with me..

I might have been running around trying to find time for everything, but I did manage to squeeze some time to get my hands on some lovely, summery, colourful beauty products that cheered me up 🙂 All of them smell, look and feel like corals, and sandy beaches, fruity cocktails and sun cream and have made my long wait to my summer holidays much more tolerable. These are my favourites:

KIKO MILANO Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in Beige Rose

I love the colour and creamy texture of this lipstick and I think it’s going to look even better with a proper tan. It’s smooth like a lip butter and it smells amazingly like cocoa. I really like the matte finish of the lipstick but if I want to add some shine to it I apply some KIKO Super Gloss in 116 Pearly Pink over it.


O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in ElePhantastic Pink


I’m all about coral shades for my nails and toes for Summer and this O.P.I. pinky-coral nail polish is my favourite this year. It’s applied very easily, dries quickly and shines like gel nail polish. This little treasure will be travelling with my on my holidays!

KIKO MILANO Mirage Lip Stylo


I love the glamorous golden hourglass packaging of this lip stylo and its magnetic closure. It gives shine and feels more like a gloss than a lipstick which is great for summer. Doesn’t last for ages  and needs to be reapplied after a couple of hours  but it’s great for its price.  I have it in which is a lovely fuchsia.

Lush Black Stockings Body Tint

Now let me tell you I’m bad with self-tanning. The only thing I can pretty much manage (and love) is the Garnier Summer Body Gradual Tan Moisturiser. But when I saw this little heart at Lush I thought I’d give it a try. It’s perfect for a night out, I use it for some glow on my arms and legs and it gives them a lovely bronzed shine. It’s very easy to apply but wouldn’t use it for a full body tan. And of course it smells great like all lush products.

Missguided Bondage Dress by ASOS


Not a beauty product but this has to be my favourite dress this summer! I love the shiny pink colour and the way the material hugs the body curves. Will be my go-to dress for many nights out!

What are your favourites this summer? What should I ABSOLUTELY pack for my holidays this year?

      Thank you so much my lovely ☺️ You should!! I have to admit that it s only recently that I started buying Kiko products, was a bit of a snob to start with 🙈 But they re brilliant especially given their price xx
