It feels good to be back! This has been the longest that I was MIA but Gosh I missed this so much! Where have I been? Girlll, exams and assignments got to me and then went through a huge change in my life, but all for the better. I've finally learnt that everything happens for a reason and that God always always wants the best for you. So no matter what you're going through, stay strong, stay your ground, don't lose faith and you will come out of it stronger (:
I decided to resume this part of me with July's Favorites! Everything that I have loved using again and again through out July. So, in no particular order, let's start with my absolute favorites of this month!
1. Zoeva - Eyeshadow Palette - Cocoa Blend.
This eyeshadow palette is loveeeeee! I have to say I got this after Kathleen raved about it and now I know why! The eye shadows are so pigmented and blend so well and easily! I don't have to go over them again and again, they just blend flawlessly without taking away the pigmentation. They're soft to touch and not powdery at all! You can create both soft and bold looks with it. I love it almost, if not as much, as my Too Faced Chocolate Bar!
Although labelled a 'bronzer', it is actually a beautiful and subtle illuminating powder that gives that gorgeous "lit from within" glow! The powder itself is velvet-soft and even leaves a soft velvety finish when applied - which was the first thing that surprised me. I'd definitely recommend you to buy this if you've been wanting the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. This is a spot on alternative to that. It is the only one I have been using to highlight my face this month.
3. Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow - Fairfax.
I have been in a no-liner phase for quite some months but this month I loved using this eyeshadow as a liner for when I want a litter extra for my eyes. What I do is, I swirl an angled brush onto the product and then line my lash line by stamping and dragging the product for a more soft liner look. The consistency of the shadow is perfect for this technique and look.
4. Essence - Silky Touch Blush - Baby Doll.
I am in loveeee with this Blusher! It is exactly what it says, "silky touch" 'cause it's so soft and goes on and blends on the cheeks like a dream! The Blusher has a pretty satin finish and gives a beautiful, natural looking pink flush to the cheeks. This looks great paired up with every makeup look, be it something minimal and soft or super glam and even pairs up nicely with a dramatic eye look. It even stays on for quite a long time which is definitely a plus.
5. Jordana - Powder Blush - Coral Radiance.
This is such a beautiful Coral shade. The formula is soft, nicely pigmented and blendable. It has a matte finish but not powdery or patchy at all. I like how it's not too pigmented because that gives me more control with building up the intensity. I found myself reaching out for this more on the days I didn't wear the Essence Blusher.
This has to be my all time favorite for Spring and Summer! The color is a gorgeous, juicy, Coraly goodness that looks stunning in this season! I love how creamy and comfortable the lipstick is on the lips. The color is an instant mood booster for me and looks beautiful with minimal makeup. The lipstick doesn't go opaque on the first application but you can definitely build it up with two to three coats.
So those were the products I loved using all through July. I'm looking forward to switch up and use other products in August. These favorites series encourage me to use new and old products and help me discover and rediscover my favorites!
Don't forget to share some of your favorite from July in the comments, you know I love hearing from you guys (:
Until next time, Good Luck and Ciao!
