July 2017 Favorites

Time has flown by so quickly and I have been so behind with my blog posts and monthly favorites - last month I didn't even have a chance to post something so here's my July favorites!! As always, I try to keep it to 10 items, so if you're interested in knowing what my June favorites are, then just keep on reading ....

1. Dior - Diorskin Forever Foundation - 031 Sand
This foundation offers a sheer to medium buildable coverage - it makes you look truly airbrushed and offers a satin finish. This has truly been in my rotation of make-up items used in June and I get compliments everytime I wear it.

2. Dior - Forever & Ever Wear Makeup Primer
This primer is very liquidy and at first I didn't know if I would like it based on its consistency - it really is like water and is very runny. Most primers I gravitated to in the past were mousse like or whipped in texture that works to smooth out the skin. This however is transparent, and goes on weightless. When dried, almost instantly, it leaves behind a satin like finish that is smooth and makes my makeup last all day. It truly is a base/primer!

3. Giorgio Armani - Sun Fabric Powder Bronzer - 100
I had bought this product a year ago and never used it - during my makeup clean-up and declutter I found this and decided to add it to my routine immediately. It makes me look like I just spent the day outside on the patio or beach soaking up the sun.

4. Burberry - Fresh Glow Highlighter - Nude Gold
This is a cool toned champagne gold that gives a beautiful wash on your cheekbones! It is both sheer yet buildable so it is fully customizable to your own preference.

5. L'Oreal - Lash Paradise Mascara - Blackest Black
This mascara is no joke, it is amazing! It lengthens and thickens adding volume to my short little lashes. It isn't clumpy and is a great drugstore find!

6. Too Faced - Melted Matte - Wine Not?
I had created a bridal look a few posts back featuring this cool toned burgundy red for a bridal tutorial. It is absolutely beautiful and so unlike anything I've seen before.

7. Bare Minerals - Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick - Tutu
This is the lipstick I have kept in my purse everyday - its a beautiful baby pink and is smooth, hydrating and almost gel-like. It glides on effortlessly without even needing a mirror and I wear it everyday at work or even out on weekends!

8.  Jimmy Choo - L'eau Jimmy Choo for Women
For those who know me, will know that I love light fragrances with a hint of floral and citrus tones. This fragrance from Jimmy Choo is perfect for summer and fall - it is light, crisp and refreshing with the perfect notes of floral and hints of citrus when I wear it. I've been wearing it everyday the last month and frequently get asked what it is :)

9. Tarte - Clean Queen Vegan Deodorant
I have a sensitivity to deodorants at the drugstore, it develops a swollen red rash that is itchy and starts flaking after a few days and causes ingrowns. So attractive I know, however once I switched to another brand of deodorant and was more conscious of what I was using, I never had that problem again. This one from Tarte though not extremely perfumed does a really good job keeping sweat a bay and keeping me fresh. It is aluminum and alcohol free and doesn't contain any harsh chemicals. I highly recommend this product!

10. Dew Puff Original Konjac Sponge
I had forgotten how much I had loved cleansing my face with a Konjac sponge until I tried this out. I had used one before from a much more expensive competitor and it just got too expensive. However, this one is a third of the price, and double the size, so YES! I am back on the Konjac wagon!

What have been some of your beauty favorites this past month? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, XO - M.
