It’s that time again! I’m here with my July monthly favorites. I’ve been loving products new and old this month, it has given me a chance to rediscover what I loved about the product in the first place. Let’s jump right in!
The first thing I’ve been loving this month is my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit (the original). This was my first ever Hourglass product and I am head over heels for their Ambient Lighting Edit. This month I’ve really been loving the blush ‘Mood Exposure’, the blush in the bottom row on the left. It’s a really nice natural blush that gives you a nice flush of color and a glow without any glitter particles (not that I’m averse to that 😜)
This month I’ve really been getting to know my Anastasia of Beverly Hills ‘Modern Renaissance’ palette. I love the colors ‘Burnt Orange’ for my crease, ‘Venetian Red’ for my outer V, and ‘Vermeer’ for my inner corner. These are so crazy pigmented! It is definitely something you have to work at to get the right pressure and blending technique. I screwed up enough times this past month playing trial and error.
I’ve gotten into my Revolution Conceal and Define Foundation in F2 again. My foundation use comes in spurts and this month it was the Revolution foundation’s turn. I love the large doe foot applicator, it makes it easier and a lot less messy to apply the product. There’s a lot in the jar. The packaging feels so luxe because it is frosted glass. One thing is, I would never travel with this because it is extremely for a foundation bottle.
Along with the Revolution foundation, I’ve been using my Revolution Conceal and Define concealer in C1 non-stop since last month. I’m almost to the point where I will have to buy a new bottle. It is great for brightening the under eye and covering up my dark circles. This is just like the foundation, the applicator is a doe foot. The product is creamy and applies very nicely.
I picked up the Laneige Lip Glowy Balm in Berry when I was out with a friend. I love the lip sleeping mask my Laneige and I was hoping to love this and I do! It’s lighter than I usually prefer but as the days have gotten hotter, a lighter lip balm is exactly what I’ve been wanting. There’s a pink tinge to the product which gives a very light flush to the lips. I reviewed this product a few days ago, click here if you want to read my full review.
This month I got the chance to try my first cake liner and I love it! It is the Suva Beauty Cake Liner in ‘Grease’ and the brush in Six-Twenty. I use my Evian facial mist to wet the brush. I found that this product goes on so smoothly and so easily that I am no longer nervous around gel, cake, or liquid liners. The brush is thin and long, making it easy to make a thin straight line.
The highlighter I’ve been loving this month is the OfraxNikkieTutorials ‘Highlight Everglow’ that I got when I joined the Allure Beauty Box subscription. I only use the two lighter colors because the dark one is WAY too dark on my skintone. It is finely milled and goes on great with a domed highlighter brush or a fan brush. I like mixing the two lighter colors and just doing the lightest color.
The last thing I’ve been loving this month is the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Taupe. You can even tell by the little bit of baby pan peeking through on the lighter shade. I use the lighter shade on the inner part of my brow and then the darker part on the tail. This powder blends easily and looks very natural. I’m so glad I decided to give it another go!
