My 2017 Summer Beauty Favourites

It has been a while since my last beauty post, hasn’t it? I don’t tend to try a lot of new products so there’s not a lot of point going over my favourite items over and over again. I thought I’d do a general Summer beauty favourites to talk about the few products which have made their way into my make-up bag.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

Would it even be a current beauty favourites post without including the Naked Heat Palette?! I’ve got to say, I’m a little bit in love. I got completely swept up in the hype over the new palette and ended up purchasing it on the highly anticipated pre-sale in June. I don’t really own a palette which is primarily warm, autumnal shades so I thought this would be great to have a play around. Like with all Urban Decay palettes, the shades are really pigmentated and apply really easily. I have to say, I think this is my favourite out of all the Naked Palettes.

MAC Prep & Prime Fix+

This product is a favourite for many beauty bloggers. I’ve had it in my collection for quite some time but never used it. MAC Fix+ can be used as a setting spray or I’ve been applying it to my eyeshadow brush to enhance and intensify metallic shades. It’s worked really well with the Naked Heat Palette on shades such as Lumbre and Scorched. I have no idea why I’ve not started using this before!

My 2017 Summer Beauty Favourites, Revlon Ultra HD Lip Colour - Rachel Nicole UK Bloggers

Revlon Ultra HD Lip Colour

I think these lipsticks have been around awhile but I’ve only just tried them out! I’ve got the shade 630 Seduction and it’s the perfect nude shade to wear on a daily basis. Although this is a matte lip colour, the product is so moisturising and lightweight. I’m definitely going to have to invest in some more shades!

Models Own Grand Finale Loose Powder

I’ve never really used many loose powders as I just use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. After discovering the Models Own Grand Finale Loose Powder at their Leeds store opening earlier in the year, I’m officially converted. I do tend to remove the lid and place my Real Techniques Setting Brush straight into the powder. It sets my make-up perfectly and doesn’t flashback in photos.

My 2017 Summer Beauty Favourites, Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara - Rachel Nicole UK Bloggers

Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara

This is actually my first Lancome mascara that I’ve tried and thoroughly impressed. I’ve not really been having much luck with mascara’s recently, everything I seem to try doesn’t really live up to my expectations. The Monsieur Big mascara is a good all rounder offering voluminous lashes which last all day. It’s become a firm favourite in my make-up bag.

What are your favourite Summer Beauty products? Have you got your hands on the Naked Heat Palette?

    I haven’t tried the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette yet as I’m not 100% certain the shades are going to work with my incredibly pale complexion. I adore the Naked palettes so I’d usually purchase the latest release immediately but I’m still umming and aahing over Naked Heat.

    I just love the look of the Urban Decay Heat palette but I’m just not sure it would suit my colouring!

    My summer favourite was actually the dermacol foundation, the super high coverage one? I had such a problem with acne and it was a life saver!

    Oh I have such a terrible case of FOMO with the latest Urban Decay palette! My wallet has not allowed me to buy it and I feel that I’m missing out ughhh haha

    Naked Heat and the Revlon Ultra HD Lip colour have been part of my favourites too, they actually still are as I use them almost every day x
