July Favorites!


Dior quint in Ready-to-Glow: Quite possibly my favorite palette from Dior, but was recently discontinued. I rarely wear grays on my eyes since they make me look tired, but the taupe makes the whole palette worth every penny!


Lunasol 3-dimensional eyes in 02 Soft Beige: My go-to, no-fuss neutral palette. It's shimmery like all Asian eyeshadows but it's very brightening and superb in quality -- just like all Lunasol palettes.


Chanel Poudre Signee Illuminating Powder: *sigh* Chanel makes the most flattering LIMITED EDITION (grr) highlighters. This one is a softer version of Albatross.
Kevyn Aucoin Medium Sculpting Powder: Because I need to carve out my cheekbones, I've been turning to this matte taupey shade instead of the regular bronzers.
Essence Color and Go nail polishes: Gel manicure in 3 minutes. Guaranteed. Plus, they're so inexpensive and last for a few good days on my nails.
Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat: Patience is not my virtue, and I simply don't have the patience to wait for my nails to dry. This dries in a good minute!
Nars Danmari Palette: An oldie but goodie (I had clearly forgotten about.) Surprisingly enough, I've been reaching for Orgasm most in this palette in the month of July!
Dior Jelly Lip Pen in Carioca: I've sung its praises for a while now. **bleep** one or more before they're gone. This is how I wanted all of the MAC All About Orange lipsticks to be -- moisturizing, glossy, long-lasting!
Dollywink Liquid Liner in Black: The finest tip I've ever encountered in a liquid liner. It glides on the eyes and stays there until I remove it with waterproof makeup remover!
Shiseido Eyebrow Pencil in Light Brown: Holy Grail Eyebrow pencil. It's not too warm nor too cool of a shade on my brows, and it might as well be waterproof since it doesn't move throughout the day.
Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum: I'm pretty harsh on my lashes, i.e. curl and waterproof mascara on a nearly daily basis. At night, I coat my lashes with this serum to keep them in their healthy state.

Re: July Favorites!

I'm glad to see that Dior quint worked for you! Smiley Happy I thought about it when it came out, but I know I can't pull darker pinks on my eyes. What's that UD shade??

Re: July Favorites!

I love NYX blushes Smiley Happy!

July favorites!



  • Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara This will definitely be a repurchase for me.  I love the lower mascara wand!
  • Urban Decay Naked Basics Although it doesn't look like it, it does get used often.  However, I haven't done much with Crave.  I've only used it as a liner.
  • NARS Laguna Bronzer I've been using this all summer!
  • Avon Duel Ended Eye Pencil in Go To Greens  I haven't used it without a primer underneath, but it works extremely well!  No creasing or anything, and I absolutely love the darker green.
  • Avon Glow Marbleized Lip Gloss in Coral Explosion I love the coral pop, especially with neutral eyes and bronzer.
  • MAC Lip Gloss in Devishly Stylish A neutral shimmer shade that can go with pretty much anything.  Once I use it up and clean the container, I'm keeping it.  It has Cruella De Vill and a couple of dalmatians on it.  Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

If you keep the gloss container you should put another gloss in it! If you put another gloss in a cup of hot water for a couple of minutes you should be able to pour it out into the Cruella De Vill packaging Smiley Happy just make sure you take out the stoppers.

Re: July Favorites!

Thanks for the tip!  I never even thought of putting more gloss in it, but that would make it excellent travel size that can fit in my pocket!

Re: July Favorites!

That's a great tip! Never thought of doing that Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

Don't you hate it when MAC comes out with Collector's items designs on their products and you can't bear to Back2MAC even when you finish? I've been holding on to my Superwoman lipstick that's almost gone just for packaging reasons.


I've been working on baby Laguna too and it takes so long to even make a dent! Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

I love doing these favorites posts Smiley Happy


Fekkai Shea Butter Moisturizing Conditioner- only conditioner I've found that makes such an amazing difference in my hair

DDF Salicylic Acid Acne Control Treatment- loving! Will be purchasing a full-size soon Smiley Happy

Benefit Dandelion- can't seem to use this sample up! Love this blush so much, been using it like crazy!

NARS Sin Blush- this one had been hiding in a drawer for while, got some good use this month!

Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer- new favorite!

BareMinerals Stroke of Light- still obsessed with this, 2 or 3 months running now!

Urban Decay Cannonball Mascara- this stuff is so amazingly waterproof- will definitely be repeat purchasing this in the future!

Wei To Go Beauty Ideal Skin Perfect Finish (CC Cream)- this stuff sinks into the skin so flawlessly that it looks like I have nothing on- but gives great coverage and smells divine!

Bite Beauty Library- dear lord I am obsessed- every time this pops up in the sale section I consider buying a backup. Worth every penny!! Poppy is my favorite shade.

Re: July Favorites!

Ooh, I've been eyeing that Bite Beauty Library... 

Re: July Favorites!

I LOVE Benefit Dandelion!  If you think using up all of the sample is difficult, wait until you try a full size!  I use mine a lot (wearing it today lol), and it does have a dip in the middle.  However, I have had it for over a year!  It's like it's never ending!  I do keep it properly stored, and I also clean it as needed, too.  

Re: July Favorites!

I love Dandelion Smiley Happy I have the same mini sample and use it as a really natural highlighter its gorgeous!

Re: July Favorites!

I totally want the Bite Beauty Library. I should have bought it when i had the chance! But if i see it again it will be mine! 

Re: July Favorites!

So glad to see the Bite Beauty Library showing up on your favorites this month! I wish Sephora came out with more of those 100 pt blush perks because I never hit pan on any blush! Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

I've been on the fence about Stroke of  Light! But I'll definitely have to go get an application next time I'm at Sephora!

Re: July Favorites!

@wendyomgwar- definitely try it out! My face looks "off" until I apply this product now!


@poshified- seriously! I'm pretty sure I will never finish a blush. I also keep buying more, which doesn't exactly help the problem Smiley Very Happy I'm also crazy pale, with crazy pigmented blushes- my Tarte blushes barely look like I've touched any of them!


@arielaaaaaaaa- I see it pop up in the early hours of the morning in the sale section every 2-3 days! (6-8 am or so!)

Re: July Favorites!

Well I'll keep checking! Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

some of my favs this month were 


-Hourglass mineral Viel primer (i was able to try this out thanks to the 100 pt. perks, i love it, very flawless) 

-Dior iconic curl mascara

-Stila stay all day liquid eyeliner 

-Becca Skin perfecting lotion in Moonstone 


Re: July Favorites!

Moonstone has been on my wishlist for ages! Maybe when 20% comes around, I'll finally justify its purchase -- especially for such a huge bottle! lol
