Monthly Beauty Favorites

Hello everyone, hope you are all well! First and foremost, can you believe it’s almost August now? It’s crazy; the time is flying by way too fast and I almost forgot to do my monthly favorites because I had the feeling we’re still at the beginning of July… Since the month has passed by so quickly I barely have any new beauty products that I’ve been loving but I still have a few which were my best friends during July. I’ve already done posts on most of them so make sure you check them out if you want to see swatches and more in-depth reviews. Hope you enjoy! (:

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation

Starting off with the base, I’ve actually been alternating a lot between Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation (review here) and MaybellineDream Fresh BB (review here) cream. I love them both and they are great for the summertime because they are really lightweight. Since I had some minor breakouts during July though I needed a bit more coverage so Chanel Vitalumiere came to the rescue! :) It covers any spots or hyperpigmentation really nicely (I still like to put some concealer on top though); it evens out my skin tone and gives the prettiest dewy glow to my face. It instantly gives me that pick-me-up boost and I love how healthy my skin looks when I’m wearing this foundation. It applies really easily (I use just my fingertips) and stays on all day! I totally recommend you checking this miracle worker if you haven’t already because it’s seriously amazing! :)

MAC Woodwinked

If you remember my last High End Beauty Haul, I showed you that I got this gorgeous eye shadow from MAC and it’s called Woodwinked. This prettiness in a pan has been recommended to me on Twitter by so many girls that I had to get my hands on it and I’ve been wearing it non-stop ever since. Woodwinekd is a beautiful warm brown shade with lovely golden shimmer in it. I love to wear it all over the lid and I absolutely adore how it makes my eyes pop. I have green eyes but I’m pretty sure this shade will compliment any eye color because it’s so versatile, yet unique at the same time. I really love the golden particles in this eye shadow because they catch the light beautifully and make the look absolutely stunning and whimsical.

Bourjois Cream Blush in 01 Nude Velvet

Even though I just recently got this lovely Bourjois Cream Blush, it has quickly become one of my all time favorite blushes so I had to include it in this post. If you still haven’t tried these babes let me tell you that they have amazing formula. Basically they are cream blushes but dry to a lovely powder finish. At the same time though, they still give a beautiful healthy glow to the skin.  They are very long lasting and stay on my face for about 7-8 hours, which is amazing. There are four shades available so I am pretty sure you’ll be able to find at least one that will suit your skin tone. I picked up the shade 01 Nude Velvet, which is a gorgeous light peachy color. It brightens up my complexion beautifully and makes me look fresh and awake. I definitely recommend checking these cream blushes out because they are brilliant products and are also pretty affordable. (:

Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti

I was wondering which Revlon Lip Butter should I include in this post because I’ve been obsessed with both Tutti Frutti (review here) and Lollipop. I absolutely adore both of them and they are incredible. Since I just recently got Lollipop I figured that Tutti Frutti has earned its own mention because I’ve been wearing it a lot during July. :) It is a beautiful bright tangerine color, which is just perfect for the summertime. I love how vibrant it is and not to mention that I’ve recently been loving rocking orange lippies! <3 Tutti Fruitti is really opaque, it’s super creamy and moisturizing and it has amazing staying power (around 5 hours). I can honestly sit there and praise the Revlon Lip Butters all day, so my suggestion is to just go ahead and get your hands on one of these gems if you haven’t already because they are a.m.a.z.i.n.g!

Models Own Coral Reef

Last but not least, I couldn’t fail to mention one of my favorite nail polishes this month and it is Models Own Coral Reef (review here). I’m sure that by now you’ve all heard about my obsession with Essie Cute as a Button but I decided to give it a little break because I know I’ll wear it non stop during my holiday in August and I didn’t want to get tired of it. Instead, I was painting my nails (a lot!) with Coral Reef, which is a beautiful orange-y coral shade that changes its color depending on the lighting and tends to look like blood orange sometimes. Coral Reef (the name <3) has a decent formula and it is not its strongest side but my love for the color is so strong that I don’t really care haha. If you are on a hunt for a new summer-r shade, I definitely think that Coral Reef is a good bet and you should definitely check it out! :)

Overall, I can say that July hasn’t been the most exciting month beauty wise, but I still managed to find some lovely products and I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. I’d love to know which have been some of your favorite products this past month so please let me know in the comments below. :) Have a wonderful August everyone and may it be full of positive emotions and lots of reasons to smile!

Lots of love,

  16. I used to have Woodwinked... as a matter of fact I'm pretty sure that was my first ever MAC purchase. I used it down to the very last drop. I really think I need to pick it up again, there is nothing else like it.

    Ooh, I've been on the fence about getting Woodwinked because it's so super pretty but I'm not sure if I could pull it off.... Even though it's pretty much a neutral... Ahh!
