July 2016 Beauty Favorites

Say WHAT?! It’s August 1?! I know we say this every month, but summer has flown by. I can’t believe the school year starts for me in about 2 weeks! I can honestly say that this was a summer to remember. Our Europe trip blew everything else out of the water, and I am already wanting to go back. I have one more recap to write, but didn’t want to overwhelm you guys with them so I have been spacing them out.

Anyway, let’s get to the beauty favorites video. I want to mention that I am human and make makeup mistakes. There is lipstick on a tooth in this video. I almost scrapped it and didn’t want to post today, but the rest of my face was way too slayed for that to happen. But it happens, guys. I sometimes really suck at makeup. So forgive me and don’t watch this full screen, k? Haha. (I did Photoshop it out of the photo/thumbnail because I had to. Forgive me.)

Products Mentioned:

OGX Healing + Vitamin E Penetrating Oil* // Weightless on the hair but really great at de-frizzing, smoothing the hair, and keeping it soft. I find it amazing for my fine hair!

Maybelline Master Prime Blur + Illuminate Primer* // I didn’t expect to love this primer as much as I do! It’s got a luminous quality, but doesn’t make me look greasy, old, or settle into fine lines. I’m really loving it!

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation* // One of my new favorite drugstore foundations! I’m so impressed with this. It is a thinner consistency than the original Infallible Pro Matte, and a really natural finish. It is not sparkly or shimmery at all – it’s a very natural, almost dewy but not too dewy finish. I wore it almost every single day on our Europe trip and it held up so well through our travels!

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar 2 Rose Gold Ultra Professional Blush Palette* // This is a stunning palette! I wouldn’t call most of these blushes, though. There are a lot of pretty highlighters in here – I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with this one!

MAC Lipstick in ‘Flat out Fabulous’ // Creamy matte purple-y pink bold lipstick. I always get compliments when I wear it. Wearing this shade in the video (and on my teeth, too, haha).

Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Lipstick in ‘Creme Brulee’ // Can’t believe how cheap this lipstick is and what good quality! I love the neutral mauve-y pink, too. They aren’t super long wearing and can get a little crumbly, but I can forgive that for under $5!

Rimmel Provocalips in ‘I’ll Call You’ // This is the most long wearing liquid lipstick I own, even alongside all of my high end products! I was demonstrating on Snapchat about a month ago how I couldn’t scrub this off, even with micellar water and cleansing oil. This thing is everything proof. I do love that about it! And the color is really pretty.

Hope you guys have a great first week of August!

    I love that you kept the video as is 🙂 it’s real life haha, sometimes we have lipstick on our teeth and sometimes I smear mascara all over my eyelid but the rest of my makeup is too nice to start over.

    I’ll have to try out the pro glow foundation. I have the pro matte and love it!

      Haha thank you so much! My face was way too slayed to scrap that video, and I really didn’t want to refilm. And it’s liberating to put a beauty video up with lipstick on my teeth. lol. Yes girl, get that pro glow… I’m obsessed.

    LOL – I love the disclaimer running along the bottom of your video – but I have to admit, I wanted to watch it in full-screen.

    How exciting that you’re getting your own office there – a chair and a desk is always a good thing 😉

    Thanks for sharing these products – yay for drugstore selections!

    I really want that Makeup Revolution blush palette. I have loved the few beauty products I’ve tried from them! You’re rocking that lipstick on the tooth ;p. It happens to the best of us haha.
