July Favorites

Hey ladies!!!  Yesterday was probably the crappiest day I've had in a long time! Ugh!!  Needless to say, I am using my blog as a distraction from it all.  Let's talk favorites for July, shall we?

I really didn't have many favorites in July.  I pretty much used the same products from June with the exception of the items below.

Yay! My July Faves!!
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush - Blissful
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush - Amused
I am still loving these blushes.  I have a 3rd one, but I have no idea where it is at the moment.  I did a full review on these blushes back in June.  Here's the link if you're interested:  Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush Review.  The blushes are super pigmented and last ALL day! Love them!

MAC Studio Fix Powder
Since I finished up my Bare Minerals foundation and I am on Project 10 Pan, I have to use what I have, right?  Well, I only have a little bit left of my Studio Fix powder so this is what I've been using as foundation.  I LOVE this.  I get Amazing coverage and it lasts for several hours.  I will definitely be adding this to my list of things to re-purchase after P10P is over.

Makeup Forever Lipstick - Mat-Matt
Makeup Forever Lipstick - Mat-Matt Swatch
I've had this lipstick for a really long time and it is BY FAR my most favorite matte nude lipstick of all time!  It's the perfect shade for my skin tone.  It's a perfect pinky/peachy nude and doesn't make me look like a walking corpse!!  Definitely a keeper!

Too Faced Chocolate Lava Gloss Super Brown Eyeliner Pencil 
Too Faced Chocolate Lava Gloss Super Brown Eyeliner Pencil- Swatch
I think this pencil came with a set I purchased from Too Faced a long time ago, but you can purchase it individually.  I just checked the Too Faced site just to make sure.  Since I finished my Clinique Quickliner, I started using this Too Faced pencil and I love it.  It's creamy, pigmented and works great on the waterline.  The brown is pretty intense...almost black which is what I like.  I tend to prefer dark brown eyeliner versus black eyeliner for the water line.  Black can be kinda harsh!

Almay Defining Brown Pencil - Brunette

I just recently discovered this pencil and did a post about it.  Here's a link if you're interested:  Almay Defining Brow Pencil.  This pencil works great and has just replaced a more expensive pencil that I was using.  This will now be my go to pencil!!

So this wraps up my July faves!!  What were some of your faves for July?  I'd love to hear from you!!  Talk to you soon!!
