Monthly Favourites | Summer Edition

If you're a regular Crave More Beauty reader then you will be well aware that I don't do a favourites post on a monthly basis.

I like to save it for when I've got something special up my sleeve, and to explode them all on a monthly favourites - full of exciting products! 

I have recently noticed my blusher collection growing rapidly and Kiko Tri-bal Soul Baked Blush is the latest addition (Lisa Eldridge used it in a tutorial, so it must be good).

The first baked blush I've used, and the prettiest I've seen; Deluxe Coral has three finely milled shimmer shades which blend beautifully together, or can be used desperately for a pop of glow.

Kiko prove to deliver all round whilst having amazing affordability - something I discovered when trying their lip liners; creamy, high pigmented and long lasting. Shade 712 Rose Mauve is a couple of shades darker than my lip colour and almost identical to Soar by Mac. At less than £3, this may be my cheapest beauty staple to date. 

Onto skincare, I've shared my love for the Pivoine moisturiser and serum, so to complete the pretty pink skincare trio I purchased the Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist. A hybrid between a toner, refreshing mist and setting spray - whatever the reason, I've been spritzing it on my face morning and night which has made a huge difference to the hydration and balance of my skin. If you're heading on your holibobs soon then make sure you have one of these by the poolside!

If there was one Charlotte Tilbury item I would of put in a 'disappointing products' post then it would of been the Full Fat Lashes Mascara... a few months later and it really lives up to the name; as Charlotte says "it's like a bra lift for the lashes" - unlike bra's, this becomes better the older it gets. 

We all know it's Summer time when the toes are on display daily, and foot (feet? foot?) maintenance happens just as often. Find the perfect nail shade and you're set to go wiggle your toes in the sand. For me, it's Essie 'Fear Or Desire'- a bright tangerine that adds a pop of colour into any outfit.

Don't even get me started on the non-beauties, a pile of sandals and cotton shirts is currently growing and growing...
