July 2013 Favorites!

Hey dolls! I say this every month, but I cannot believe July is over... August already! Here are some of my favorite products from this month:

Three that I didn't take photos of....

The coconut oil is probably a given, here is a post I did about the benefits of it!

And here is a review on the Elf Makeup Mist & Set!

On top of the Wet N Wild palette is a dotting tool, these are so fun to do different nail polish designs. I forgot to take a close-up of it, but one side is very small and the other has a larger tip. It was only $2!

I'll mention the cult favorites first...

Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind concealer in the brightening shade.

IMG_5681

It's a pink toned concealer, I've been using it every day under my eyes for the perfect brightening effect. I love this stuff! The consistency is nice and thin so it doesn't cake up under the eyes, it covers up my dark circles and brightens with ease. It also blends out amazingly well; I can't say enough good about this!

I fell into the hype on this one... It seems like every single youtube guru is talking about this. I'm really picky when it comes to lip balm so I didn't expect to like this but I really enjoy it. I don't really love ones that you have to stick your finger in, but the product is great and it. smells. so. delicous!!! Ugh. I could just eat it. I want to try the other ones too! The consistency isn't too thin, or too thick and it's really smooth and creamy.

NYX's single eyeshadow in Dark Brown.

IMG_5661

I use this for my eyebrows - I use a brow gel as well, that's why the center is a little white-ish. But this is a totally matte brown and it matches my brows really well. It lasts all day and the pigmentation is great as well.

NYX's eyeshadow base in White.

IMG_5711

This is just a jar version of the Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk. Same feel and texture. I put this on my lids then blend it up a little bit into the crease. It makes my eyeshadows stand out more!

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Painted Purple

IMG_5684

This is more vibrant in person, it can be slightly patchy but I wouldn't wear this alone. It's a perfect base and really makes eyeshadows brighter and last longer. I've been big into wearing purple shadow on my lower lash line to make my green eyes stand out, so I'll put this on first and then set it with a purple eyeshadow. It lasts for hours and doesn't fade at all.

Essence Gel Liner in Midnight In Paris.

IMG_5709

This has replaced my Maybelline gel liner. It is super, super creamy and smooth and the blackest gel liner I own. It doesn't smudge or anything and lasts all day, especially when you set it with a black shadow. It really stays put!

Wet N Wild's Petal Pusher palette

IMG_5703

Super duper pigmented, sorry my swatches are kind of wacky but you get the idea. The purples in here are fantastic and like I said, just insanely pigmented. I love this palette!

Milani's Color Statement lipstick in Nude Creme

IMG_5671

IMG_5674

This is a pretty pinky/mauve nude. It's hard for me to find nudes that won't wash me out and this one doesn't too badly. I love to wear this alone or over a pink when I want it toned down a little more. Here is a review on these lipsticks, they are some of my all-time favorites.

So there are my favorites for July! What are some of yours?
