July Favorites 2015
Finally there is a month where I’ve found some new faves. That’s partially why I haven’t done a Faves post in a while. And as you all might’ve read in a previous post, my camera decided to bail on me. Suffice it to say I got it back, but it will have to go away again. They didn’t fix it completely. Sigh.
On to the makeup galore!
This for one you might’ve seen in a haul post! I’ve heard mixed reviews about it, but I love it! At the end of the day my foundation is still there! A really good day, I can just re-powder after work and go shopping! How amazing is that!? Might not all be thanks to this, but still.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer.
I love me some VS! I can’t tell you how stoked I am they opened a store at the same mall as I have my closest Sephora. ( Only an hour drive away ) Sadly, they don’t carry the work out gear but they have some lingerie and a ton of perfumes and body mists! I typically like fruity and light scents. But this is quite the opposite. Very sexy and feminine. And for being a mist it stays on longer than I expected. The sales girl said two hours, but I want to say at least four.
Victoria Secret Scandalous.
I have been on the hunt for ages for a setting spray. They aren’t that common here, yet. We got the Smashbox Photoready primer spray water mist thingy like two months ago. I almost felt the urge to try it but then found this instead. And actually, I like it. I don’t wear it every single day, but when I do, I notice that my make up looks better longer. I haven’t tried it to wet my eyeshadow brush yet. Gonna play with that this weekend if I get some peace and quiet.
E.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set.
I ran out of my NUXE face cream, sad, sad day that was. I found this on sale at my grocery store and thought, hey, for that price tag, it won’t matter if I like it or not. And so far, a week in, I like it. I will however let you guys know how I get on with this in the long run. Being very sensitive and all that jazz.
Garnier Moisture + Soft. Normal Skin.
I already adore this brush! you all know how I rave about my Expert Face Brush. I would b e utterly lost without it. I picked this up a couple of weeks ago and it is a staple now. I don’t buy brushes that often. Distributes and blends face powder like a dream. And it is super soft and just enough nicely dense. If you don’t own it, may I suggest you run out this instant and buy it? It really is that good!!
Real Techniques Powder Brush.
Haven’t pulled this guy out in a long time. Having very much to do with the fact that I smashed it and that I’m usually too dry to use it. But now, over the summer, I can use it to set my foundation.
Rimmel Clear Complexion.
I’ve seemed to gotten more and more into contouring. I only do it lightly to enhance my cheekbones and slim down the jawline. I tap some highlight on the top of my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose. This is a simple two in one product, saves me time in the morning too.
Bourjois Bronzing Powder & Highlighter.
And at last, the palette I debated to get the full size of or the Too Faced Chocolate Bar. But I read so many bad reviews of this so I skipped it totally. But I saw this online and couldn’t resist it. It was just the right amount of money I wanted to spend, compact and just filled with colors that I would actually use The full size of this contains some shades I would never ever use. And guess what, haven’t had a single allergic reaction too it. And, I got an extra 15% off when I ordered it. It’s very compact, the size of your regular credit card, a decent mirror, no floppy brush you wouldn’t use and packs a great color payoff and they blend nicely. As you see, I can’t sing the praise loud enough. Will have to do a ful review of this alone. LOVE IT!
Smashbox Full Exposure. (Travel ed.)
