July Favorites

Hey guys! So July has come and gone and August is now here! So lets get started on the month by a July Favorites post! So, if you are interested, keep reading to find out what I have been enjoying this month!


Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black
This is one of my all time favorite all time mascaras, it significantly volumizes and lengthens my lashes! This is not the waterproof mascara, but it does really well in holding my curl!

Dior Diorshow Waterproof Mascara in Black
Once I stole this back from my sister, I remembered why I loved this mascara so much. While the wand is extremely bulky, this mascara works wonders on my puny lashes. Plus, this is waterproof, which makes it work wonders for the summer time. 

Elf Studio Blush in Candid Coral
itsJudyTime on Youtube always raves about this blush so I had to pick it up! Needless to say, this is a really good everyday blush. It is a buildable blush, one where you won't be afraid to put too much blush on like my favorite (Pink Passion). 

Elf Studio Eyebrow Kit in Medium
Reviewed this product here and I have been loving this product this month! This has been what I have been using on my brows and I absolutely adore it!

Elf Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in Movie Star
This is a nifty product that I got around 4th of July and I have been using it for the majority of the month! This color is absolutely beautiful, its a sheer red lip color that is quite buildable! I've been wearing red lips more often in July as a result!

Inglot Eyeshadow Matte 353 (Top Left)
This is definitely my newest favorite highlight color. I adore this eyeshadow for highlighting my inner corners of my eyes and underneath my brows. Currently my most used of the Freedom palette I have made right now! Used here for my FOTD Look.

Mac Eyeshadow in Woodwinked (Veluxe Pearl)
Probably one of my best purchases I have made yet for a single eyeshadow. While I know that there are dupes for Woodwinked, I couldn't resist purchasing the color that everyone raves about several months back. Once I started wearing this eyeshadow, I am pleased to say I made a good decision. I featured this eyeshadow in a FOTD here and it looks so beautiful when it is just swept across the lid. If I am in a rush nowadays, all I do is just use this eyeshadow and run out of the door!

Maybelline Masterprecise Liquid Eyeliner in Black
To this day my favorite type of eyeliner is liquid, even though I haven't found the perfect liquid liner yet. I just love how smooth liquid liner goes on, in comparison to pencil and gel eyeliner. This is currently the only liquid eyeliner I have in my collection (shocker!) and so as such this is what I have been using for the majority of the month. 

Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Waterproof Eyeliner in Nude
This eyeliner is perfect for when I want to make my eyes look brighter! I have been using this on days when I want to make my makeup look more natural, and this long lasting eyeliner definitely does the job!

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent
This does increase the staying power of my makeup, but it is not the best in my collection. Nevertheless, this powder is great for travel and still very good! I have been throwing this one in my travel makeup bag because of compactness and because I do adore it!

Scarzone Scar Diminishing Cream SPF 15
It's summer which calls for short shorts and skirts! Which, then of course, leads to me being more proactive on diminishing my scars on my leg. I don't use any other products besides this one, and it has worked really well for me in the past and continues to do so. This is a long time favorite, and I always end up remembering to use this when I am wearing shorts more often..and due to it being bikini season. LOVE.

Sephora Atomizer
I forgot how much I liked having perfume on me...and then I bought this. Needless to say, this is a godsend. I can now actually use perfume (instead of forgetting to like I normally do) because I always carry the atomizer with me! 

Wet n Wild Blush in Pearlescent Pink
The flash on the camera makes this look more pink than it truly looks in real life, but this is a really nice everyday blush that you can wear. It's also really nicely pigmented! I'm really glad I picked this one up, and now I'm tempted to pick up the last Wet n Wild Blush that I don't have...

Wet n Wild Fergie Take the Day Eyeshadow Primer
Posted a review of this primer here, and I honestly can't get enough of this primer. I can barely use up my Sephora primer because I have been using this one so much! It is just more convenient, and the lasting power of this is so much better!

Wet n Wild Color Icon Trio in Silent Treatment
Talk about a versatile little trio here. I am able to create both day and night looks with this palette, even used wore it for my Girl's Night Out Collab. The pigmentation is amazing and I absolutely love how this goes on the eyes. It's like a dream!

Random Favorites!

TV Show:

The White Queen

Someone is going to kill me when I said this, but I think I prefer this TV Show to the book. For me, the book dragged...a lot.... but this TV Show is just plain awesome! Of course, it hasn't airred in the US yet, so I've been watching it online (not that I could watch it at home anyways, cause we don't have Starz in our package) but I've fallen in love with the characters. Yes, it may not be the most historically accurate but its TV, what do you really expect for TV. This is also done in a woman's point of view, so there isn't an insane amount of violence/war at all...which is probably why the ratings aren't the highest in England (sad I know right...even though this TV show is geared towards woman). I do appreciate that the sex scenes are pretty vanilla (aka pretty mild in terms of modern TV) cause as much as I love Max Irons and all of his goodness, I do not want a TV show to be vulgar (we have porn for that folks). But still, if you don't like seeing anything sexual related, don't watch.

Memorable Blog Moments!

- Have talked to wonderful bloggers this month... constantly :)

How was July for you guys! Let me know in the comment section below!


  1. I love that Maybelline liquid liner too! I have been using it for about a year now, and I haven't found another liquid liner that I love as much as that one. The rimmel stay matte powder has been a favorite for me too this month!

    1. I'm still trying to see if I can find a better liquid liner that I would like, but as of yet I haven't gotten around to finding one!

  2. We have such similar taste! I really need to try that nude kohl by Rimmel! I've heard about it quite a lot lately.

    Congrats on reaching 5,000! :)

    Eyeshadow Addicts Anonymous

    1. You should definitely try if you ever get a chance Sarah :) It's a great eyeliner :D And thanks dearie :D I was surprised I hit it this month :D

  3. Congrats on 50 followers!
    Wet n' Wild Pearlescent Pink was one of my favorites for the month too! We have some other similar loves too... I use my ELF Brow kit all the time! I don't know how I haven't hit pan yet.

    1. Thanks Nikki! Pearlescent Pink is such a pretty blush! I have a feeling I won't hit pan for awhile cause I have 3 brow products now... LOL XD

  4. Oh, I only have one liquid liner in my collection too LOL ._.'' (which I barely use HAHAHAH)

    I love that Wet N Wild trio! Better than Walking on Eggshells, in my opinion. Nothing like a very dark brown for better definition and lining the it's dirt cheap!

    HEHE, White Queen, I see :D (got you back on the ~tv~ again)
    I still need to get on that...only on ep.3

    Vanessa | Citron and Guavaberry ʘ‿ʘ | Makeup & Silly things

    1. Also, congrats on 5000 views + 50 followers! c:

    2. Everyone is having similar tastes with me today! :D I have the Walking on Eggshells, and I would have to agree! Silent Treatment is definitely more awesome! Yes, its definitely due to you that I got back on the White Queen bandwagon. You should definitely catch up if you get the chance! And thanks dearie :D

  5. have an atomizer is great! i found a cheap dupe of the travello on ebay $4! you can't be that!

    A Beautiful Zen

    1. $4 is a really good deal! I considered buying the travelo, the only thing that did put me off was how you really couldn't clean it :/ With this you can so you don't mix fragrances ^_^
