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.
 
What were your faves this month? Share away! Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

i've been keeping it pretty simple this month with the monsoon season hitting and making it very hot and humid here in arizona.  here's what I've been wearing pretty much everyday Smiley Happy

 

  • Fresh sugar lip balm in rose
  • LM tinted moisturizer with translucent powder
  • Benefit's Hervana Blush
  • UD eyeliner - i've been playing with colors on the water line, like prurple, blue and copper and i'm really liking the way it looks, especially for summer
  • Stila's eyeshadow in Kitten
  • Benefit's They're real mascara

 

 

Re: July Favorites!

I need to bust out Kitten again! It's been in my neglected stash lol

Re: July Favorites!

Ahh that Dior palette looks so lovely!

 

My favorites this month have been:

 

  • Korres Lip Butter in Wild Rose
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Mascara
  • Nars TM in Alaska
  • Benefit Powda Wowza Box of Powders Quad (mini box set of Hoola, Coralista, and Bella Bamba)
  • Nars And God Created The Woman palette
  • Nars Single Eyeshadow in Outremer
  • MAC Paint Pot in Constructivist
  • Bare Minerals Eye Primer

Re: July Favorites!

I am obsessed with bareMinerals' eye primer - best one I've tried (better than UDPP, TFSI) for my super oily lids

Re: July Favorites!

I agree! My eyeshadow literally does not budge when I use it! It's tacky at first, but dries down quickly. The only thing I don't like about it is sometimes I'll get it on my eyelashes, and I can't get it off!

Re: July Favorites!

I thought the TFSI and UDPP were both overrated!

Re: July Favorites!

I also loved the Nars And God Created the Woman palette, I know a lot of people say that its not as pigmented as individual shades but they're all pigmented for me!

Re: July Favorites!

I probably got a dud palette, since mine was nearly impossible to blend. Go figure! lol

Re: July Favorites!

Hmm... I haven't had to blend any of them yet... I shall try this tomorrow!

Re: July Favorites!

I'm always on the hunt for a good and less expensive eye primers (than the Nars) -- will be trying the Bare Minerals one for sure! Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

Killer July faves!!!!! Smiley Happy  I'm dying to get Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. I have no idea what I'm waiting for! Haha I finally got the illuminating powder from Chanel and I love it!!! 

Re: July Favorites!

I've gone back and forth on the Skin Enhancer! lol I usually get my Kevyn Aucoin products at Blush[dot]com when they have 20% off. Where did you manage to **bleep** the Chanel highlighter?!

Re: July Favorites!

Yes Ellevee09 please tell because those were limited edition and were no longer to be found anywhere!!!

Re: July Favorites!

Please, nowadays, nothing is limited edition. Smiley Wink 

Re: July Favorites!

I hope you're able to still pick one up! If I could live off of one highlighter, that Chanel one would be it Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

Thanks for update sweets!!! It was really hit or miss on my Chanel. My mom goes to Vegas all the time. I was looking forever online and I called the Chanel at bellagio and they had a few. My darling mother scooped one up... Plus a few other items. Smiley Happy again, thanks for the code!!!! Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

So "s n a t c h" in my previous response was censored LOL

Re: July Favorites!

Omg! That's crazy! I can't stop laughing!!!! I'll remember not to use that word! Smiley Happy 

Re: July Favorites!

I wish Sephora would repromote the Danmari Nars palette! I missed out big time! Smiley Sad

Re: July Favorites!

Crossing fingers on another blush palette this holidays! Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

Not buying too many new things this month has made me appreciate my new and unused items I had and some old goodies!

The New:

Catastrophe Cosmetic Fresh Face Mask by Lush: I LOVE this so much!! It just soothes my skin and makes it feel so soft after I take it off Smiley Happy and it smells so good. 

Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light and the brush that goes along with it: Seriously... omg why didn't I use this earlier! It was just sitting in a bag of new products and I finally dusted it on, I thought it looked really nice but when my brother told me my skin looked nice... that was it. And as soon as I walked into work all the girls were like wow you look so different! Blah blah blah Smiley Wink seriously though, gorgeous. 

Conceal FX Camouflage Concealer in Light: this has great coverage! I use it under my eyes and it hides those dark circles like no ones business! The only problem is that this creases :/ Just like every other concealer I've ever used under my eyes.

The Old:

Hair Oils: I've been using oils instead of a leave in conditioner lately and it gives my hair a sheen that the leave in conditioners don't I've been trying out a ton including Josie Maran, Kerastate and Pequi Oil, but honestly I don't see a difference from one to another. 

Victoria Secret Love Spell: This is self explanatory everyone and their mothers has this!

NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny: I forgot what a great color this is on my skin!!

Clinique Almost lipstick in Honey: On my lips this is much more red because I have pigmented lips, its so gorgeous and glossy.

Bobbi Brown's Claret Lip Shine: This is sort of like the Almost lipstick but a bit more pigmented, I love the shade!

 

Poshified I've been meaning to get Dollywink forever! I don't want to buy it online.. it seems I have to buy all asian goodies online though, I'll just make a good sized haul one day... lol

Re: July Favorites!

I'm glad the Ambient Powder worked for you! I wanted it to work for me so badly since it gave me a flawless finish, but something in it broke me out big time!

 

I'll be making a trip to Lush this week. You can count on my checking out that face mask Smiley Happy

Re: July Favorites!

Oh no =( I'd be so sad if I couldn't use it! And I liked it so much I'm going back to buy a new one! And I have 5 black pots so I get it for free woohoo!

Re: July Favorites!

Your Lush store is definitely more generous with samples! I wish mine was too!
