July Favorites!

I'm seriously going to say this but I can't believe that July is basically over! School is just around the corner! This month I've been using some things that I've mentioned before. I do however have some new products to show! Let's get started!

1. I have been loving the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Perfector for Combination to Oily Skin this month! I bought in early May in the shade Medium/Deep and at first I didn't like it. It was too dark for me at the time. However, I tried it again early this month and I absolutely love it! It has a matte finish and it lasts for well over 8 hours. Just one touch up and I'm good to go! I'm not sure if I will use this during fall/winter but for summer, it's amazing!

2. For some reason, my legs are lighter than the rest of my body so I decided to try out the St. Tropez Instant Glow Body Lotion. I got it inside Sephora's annual Sun Kit this May. I tried this for my brother's graduation in June and my legs seriously looked awesome! They actually matched the rest of my body! For reference, I'm about an NC 35 in MAC terms. This does set quickly so you have to work fast. It didn't transfer onto my clothes and lasts all day! Love it!

3. Lately I've been using cream eyeshadows by themselves because I want my makeup to look simple. The one product that I've been loving is the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Amethyst! All I have to do is swipe it on my entire lid, blend and head out the door! I own four of these and I absolutely love them! I do however have to prime my eyelids because they are extremely oily. Other than that, if you're looking for a great stand alone color that don't crease, I totally recommend these!

4. I've talked about this product so many times but I truly love it! My go-to pressed powder has to be the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Pressed Powder! I have it in the Light to Medium shade. I have try this over many foundations and it keeps my skin matte all day long! It's perfect for you oily skin girls out there! The powder is fairly pigmented as well so I can get away with using it as a powder foundation! I can't live without it!

5. Another product that I have shown in my favorites is the bareMinerals Correcting Concealer. I use the shade Medium 1. I love how creamy it is! It doesn't settle into my fine lines either! I use it more as a corrector for under my eyes since it does have some peachy undertones to it. I use this and my Rimmel Match Perfection concealer and my under eyes are completely covered! I've already hit pan on it so I plan on repurchasing this product pretty soon!

6. The one blush and bronzer I've been wearing pretty much all month long has to be my ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer Powder! The NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo looks similar to the ELF one. I love the warmth both the blush and bronzer give me! They give the perfect summertime glow! I've made quite a dent into this duo so I can't wait to hit pan on it soon!

What were your favorites this month! Until next time!
