My July 2013 Beauty Favorites


It's been a pretty busy month for me between applying makeup for wedding parties and then sitting in the emergency room for an entire night at the end of last week with my son who unfortunately fractured his collar bone in school. Through it all, there are some pieces from the beauty department that have been there for me all month long. This weeks youtube video is where I describe each and every item in full, watch it here or towards the end of the post where I will insert it as usual. Here are this months beauty favorites.


Maybelline Falsies Big Eye Volum Express Waterproof Mascara- This mascara really does last all day without much flaking or smudging throughout. Although I don't notice much volume for my lashes I do like the length it gives. The fact that is has two sides to it, one for the upper lashes and another for the lower lashes is a new concept that I like alot!

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer NW25- This is another long lasting product which makes it perfect for summer time. It goes on smoothly, lasts all day and doesn't crease up under my eyes at all.

L'oreal Infallible 24 Hour Eyeshadow 890 Bronzed Taupe- I have talked about this eyeshadow line so much already. These pigment like eyeshadows are absolutely stunning on the eyes and they last for 24 hours or more. They remind me of macs pigments quite a bit but they are so much less expensive.


Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick 140 Fuchsia Fever- This lipstick is the most gorgeous fuchsia pink that is perfect for a low maintenance eye day- just pop this on and it takes a makeup look to the next level.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Color Correcting Adjust*- A primer that helps reduce redness? of course I love it. This primer creates a blur of sorts and within a few minutes redness is reduced quite a bit.

Clean & Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser- This product has been a part of my skin care routine for over 5 years. The ingredients it's made of work against any unwanted blemishes and have helped with any of my summer oily t-zone skin problems this month in a huge away.


Sonia Kashuk Eye Makeup Remover- I recently reviewed this one and I talk about it all of the time. It makes removing my makeup so easy every night. With just one swipe all makeup is gone.


Essie Brooch The Subject Nail Polish- Nude nails was all the rave last summer. I had kind of forgotten about this one for a little while. Now that I've pulled it out again I think it's going to be one I wear alot more. See it on my nails here.

Conair Brush- This brush gives my hair great volume and height and I've been very useful for the days I pull some of my hair into my wig which is alot lately because of the heat.

Alterna Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist- This hair oil does a good job of smoothing frizz and giving the hair a freshening when it needs it!

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Mask- From the very first time I opened this product, I've loved it. It does a great job of nourishing my hair. Every time I use it my hair feels so soft and silky.
