July Favorites!

Hi All!

Wow, the summer is just flying by, isn’t it?!  July was an exciting month for me so I feel like I blinked and it zipped right on by.  Let’s get started with my second ever monthly favorites post!

The very first product comes as no surprise if you’ve peaked at my blog once or twice in July 😆.  I have not put the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette down since I received it!  It traveled with me to Portland, I’ve used it for nights out, shopping trips at the mall, grabbing a quick bite to eat with a friend – you name the occasion, I’ve used it!

Up next are my favorite lashes from July, the Ardell Demi Wispies.  I reached for these lashes a lot when I wanted to bump up my eye look a bit from just regular mascara, but I didn’t want the to have a big, full-on lash look.  These are the perfect in-between!

The blush that I’ve been reaching for constantly in July is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion.  I’ve owned this for a while now and love to use it especially during the summer months.  It adds such a natural and warm coral-peach glow to my skin.  A little goes a long way with this!

This is a new-to-me product that I have no idea why it took me so long to try – the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer in Light.  I’ve been getting to know it better over the past 3-4 weeks and I find that it does do a pretty good job at covering dark circles and brightening up my under-eye area.  I really like this for day-to-day use!

I have been in love with this next product – the Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish in Couture Curator 140.  It’s a beautiful, pale, peachy-pink color that makes my skin look just a bit more tan!

Another item that I can’t believe took me so long to get my hands on are the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top Shoes in White.  I love how these shoes go with most casual outfits that I wear!

  1. How to Get Away With Murder is so good! I love it. I also really need to get my hands on that palette. What do you think of all the crap Jaclyn has been getting lately, especially for that video with Kim K, people can be so mean! xo

  2. That palette is so gorgeous! I want it so bad, if only for all the reds, oranges, and golds ❤ And yesssss that concealer is THE BEST I've ever used! I have dark circles all the time like crazy. and I've been using that concealer under my eyes nearly every day for the past several years. I didn't even know that it was so popular when I started using it! It's so good 🙂 And I'm also watching How to Get Away with Murder 🙂 It's a good show! Great post xx

    1. I love the price point of it too because I don’t feel bad applying a bunch the way I do when I use pricier concealers! And yes, such a good show! I am a HUGE fan of both Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal so I finally decided to give HTGAWM a try and I enjoyed that one too!

  3. I absolutely love my white converse sneakers, I have the shoreline ones and I can’t get enough! I’ve been dipping into my Morphe x Kathleen Lights palette a lot this month and have been loving that as well as the nyx butter gloss in angel food cake! Thanks for sharing! Xoxo

  4. I LOVE the Instant Age Rewind, which is why I’m so sad all my local stores aren’t stocking it for some reason anymore! Hopefully it comes back soon, because it’s probably the best concealer I’ve ever tried! Great post x

  5. I wanted to try the Morphe palette so bad, but the shipping fees to the UK were ridiculous on every site I looked on! 😩 I love the concealer though, a definite staple in my make up collection! 🖤
