July Favorites

July has flown by, and August is gearing up to be just as busy!  

This month I rediscovered a lot of new beauty products that had been lost in the bottomless pit that is my makeup collection.  Here is a list of the products I loved during the month of July.

I rediscovered my L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation this month.  I love this foundation, it evens out your skin and gives it a healthy glow.  I have the shade W1-2 (Porcelain/Light Ivory) and I find that it is a touch too light for me, but if I use a slightly darker powder or some bronzer it matches perfectly.

A new purchase this month was the L'Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blush in #501 'Soft Peach'.  This product is amazing, it is so smooth and light.  It blends out to be sheer and has a great natural finish

I have recently been loving the Urban Decay 'Naked Flushed' palette.  I love that this palette has blush, bronzer, and a highlight all in one.  The bronzer is matte and buildable, which makes it great for contouring, but you can also swirl the bronzer with the highlight for the perfect sun kissed glow.  

If you read my Perfect Palettes post, you know I mentioned that the Make Up For Ever 'Sepia Blue' palette was my least used palette.  After that post I made it a point to try to use it more often, and it has quickly become a favorite palette of mine.  I have been mainly using the brown shades to create a neutral smokey eye look.  These shadows blend beautifully and are extremely silky.

My last beauty favorite are the Revlon Colorburst Balms.  I have a bunch of these, but my 3 favorite are Whimsical and Coquette which are Lacquer Balms, and Unapologetic which is a Matte Balm.  These are so smooth and creamy and have an amazing color payoff, plus they have a great minty scent!
