July Favorites

    And just like that, July has come to an end…well almost. July flew by very quickly for me that I almost forgot to plan for my monthly favorites post! However, during mid-July I had already been using a few of the same products constantly. This made it fairly easy for me to select what was going to be included in this months favorites. I must say, this month I tried amazing products and I cannot wait to share them with you.

 Becca- Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder in Opal $38
      If you are looking for a pigmented highlighter, this product is for you! I cannot describe to you how beautiful this highlighter is. It gives the perfect amount of shimmer and it makes your skin look incredibly dewy and glowy. This is definitely a stable item for the summer.

Too Faced- Love Eye Shadow Palette $15
       I went to Nordstrom Rack one day and I came across a makeup section. I was quite surprised to find great brands at an affordable price. Brands such as Too Faced, Urban Decay, Tom Ford, NYX, and a few others that I cannot remember. The Love palette from Too Faced caught my eye because of the beautiful eye shadow colors. I think these colors would be perfect for the autumn and winter season. This month I have been using the shades cherish, devotion, and puppy love frequently.

Lorac- Buildable Blush (Matte) in Prism $22
        As I was cleaning out my makeup drawer the other day, I noticed that I have a low selection of blushes. Therefore, I made it my mission to start buying more blushes. This month I have been loving the Lorac blush in prism. It is a beautiful peach-pink color. It gives a beautiful soft pigment to your cheeks while not being too vibrant.

Mayebelline- Dream Lumi touch Highlighting Concealer in Nude Chair $5.59
          If you have read my June Favorites post, you would know that I like to try different concealers quite a lot. This month I finally decided to try the lumi touch highlighting concealer for the first time. I heard a lot of people talking and raving about this product for long time, so I decided to try it for myself. I must say, this concealer does brighten up my under eyes as well as give me enough coverage. I love it!

Maybelline- Color Whisper Lipstick in Coral Ambition (discontinued)
       Orange lips have been a must-have for me this month. I think it is the perfect color for the summer time. I’ve had this lipstick for a while now and it wasn't until this month that I decided to wear it on my lips again. This lipstick is very moisturizing as well as pigmented. It has a soft coral shade and its perfect if you just want a soft tint on your lips and nothing too dramatic.

Revlon- Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous (discontinued)
       Unlike the Color Whisper lipstick in Coral Ambition, this lip stain is quite on the vibrant side. It is the perfect orange shade and it would look beautiful with a dewy face look, especially with the Becca highlighter I mentioned in the beginning. It is the perfect summer color!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge $6.99
     Before purchasing the real techniques sponge, I would always use a brush to apply my foundation. When I would use a brush, I would have to brush and brush for quite awhile to really blend my foundation into my skin. However, ever since I started using the sponge my skin has looked incredible. The sponge allows the foundation to really absorb into your skin making you face look flawless and natural. Quick tip! Wet your sponge first and make sure to squeeze out the excess water in order to get the best results.

Rugrats T-Shirt $12.99
    Rugrats was my all time favorite cartoon show as a child. So when I saw this t-shirt, I just had to have it! (Even if this t-shirt was from the men’s section). Is it just me, or does the men’s section of many stores have a wide variety of cool graphic t-shirts? Honestly, this is probably the best t-shirt I ever owned.

 Mrs. Thinster’s Toasted Coconut Cookie Thins
     These cookies are so good! Whenever I reach for a cookie, I can’t help but to always take a whiff of the inside of the bag. The smell of sweet coconut is amazing. These cookies are crispy thin, and most importantly delicious!
