Hello chickadees! It's July favorites time already. Sweet baby kittens, I can't believe this month is over. Bring on August - mostly because it's my birthday in August and we're one month closer to fall. Have I mentioned how much I lurveeee fall? Ahem. July favorites. Let's goooo!

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer 
Everyone, meet your new best friend. I can't believe this wasn't in my life sooner. As much as I love lotions, the worst part is sitting and waiting for it all to sink in before you can do anything. With this, you can spray, rub it in and go out within a minute. It's that awesome. I don't think it has a scent name other than "the yellow bottle" but it smells so yummy. Kind of like sunscreen. It's extremely moisturizing with pure oat extract and leaves my skin soft and not greasy at all. 

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Contour Brush & Buffing Brush
Oh my goodness. These brushes. First off, Real Techniques brushes in general are ah-mazing. They're relatively cheap ($15 on for a "pack" which usually includes 4-5 brushes) and are great quality. I've never experienced fall out with these. The contour brush and buffing brush have definitely been overused this month. The contour brush is dome-shaped and perfect for making those cheekbones pop. It's small enough to get a good contour with but big enough to make it look natural and not a weird line of contour. The buffing brush is super soft and dense to buff my skin to flawlessness. I only wish it was a bit bigger but I'm happy with it.

L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows in Dive Right In & Strawberry Blonde
Up until these two, I've never used loose shadow before. I always figured it'd be too messy for me to even try to work with. I don't know what made me buy these but I'm so happy I did! Strawberry Blonde is this beautiful soft duochrome of pink and magenta and Dive Right In is a soft baby turquoise with bright turquoise shimmer. Both apply better when damp but these colors scream summer to me.

Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara
We all know how obsessed I am with mascara. This mascara will probably be my go-to for a long time. First off, there's two different wands on either end; one for your upper lashes and one for your lower lashes. The upper lashes wand is big with multiple bristles to pump up your top lashes. I didn't experience any clumps. The bottom lashes wand is smaller and the formula seems to be thinner while I really like. I feel like every mascara should have dual ends!

MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
Every beauty guru and their mom swears by this and I was suckered in. Thankfully, I really needed this and ended up loving it. You can use it as a base for your eyeshadows like a primer or you can use it as a perfect nude eyeshadow. 

NARS Blush in Orgasm
Another beauty guru approved blush I had to try! I think it was last month, I found this in a blog sale new and unused - PERF! I really do feel like this matches up to the hype. It's just this perfect pink blush that gives you a subtle flushed look when applied. It's way more sheer than I thought it would be and I'm okay with it.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
Can you tell this is my favorite palette of all time and I take it with me wherever I go? This baby has been to Vegas, Boston and always seems to have exactly what I need at that time. Smokey eye? Check. Nude eye? Check. Every shadow is pigmented to perfection and blends like a dream. 

Lynnderella Deep Blue Seeing, Zoya Charisma & NCLA Poolside Party, All Eyes On Me!
Lynnderella Deep Blue Seeing is this amazing turquoise glitter bomb. My nails always look like a blue disco ball when I have this on. Zoya Charisma is currently on my toes and I've received SO many compliments on this. It's ridic. It is matte but a shiny top coat (like HKG) shines it up really nice. Lastly, NCLA Poolside Party, All Eyes On Me! is a fun orange-y peach.

Seventeen Magazine
What's that? I'm almost 25 years old and still read Seventeen mag? Yep. I'm obsessed with this magazine.
