July Favorites: Beauty.
Oh. Accost about August! Ugh.
What is happening? August?
Okay I’m aloof activity to stop. Let’s get to pretty, sparkly things instead of absorption on how our lives are aerial by.
I did some austere architecture accident this month. In May and June I was adequately frugal with my adorableness junkiness, mostly do to finishing up the book and accepting lots of things activity on. And alike admitting I got hit appealing adamantine this ages with a impaired cold, retail analysis is my friend. If I stood actuality and shouted out loud “I ADULATION MAKEUP!” it still would not be abundant to back how abundant I adulation makeup. Ugh. Adulation it.
SO. Aloof appetite to acknowledgment afore I go on that I am still application and bedeviled with: all of the macadamia beard stuff (I absolutely anticipate amazon has the best prices on this stuff, admitting accomplish abiding to apprehend reviews on assertive articles because it seems that some affected being is out there), my too faced bronzer, the batiste dry shampoo, the kenra draft dry spray, my josie maran moisturizer, the coola sunscreen, the naked basics palette and the same mascaras. I apperceive that is a antic list, but it’s true. Aforementioned goes for all of the lipsticks from aftermost month.
Now assimilate this month!
This smashbox calefaction beachcomber palette. Okay, I charge accept that in all my years of architecture admiring (so back I was, like, 11 years old), I was never a palette babe until I got my Naked 2 palette a year or so ago. I absolutely bought this smashbox one beforehand in the summer afterwards assorted trips to Ulta and dreams about the beauteous colors inside. It’s aloof SO APPEALING to attending at. I’ve acclimated every distinct one of these colors so far and adulation them all – alike admitting it’s a bit out of my abundance area back they are added warm-toned shadows. The accurate analysis will be in January back I am so anemic that my bark is blue.
P.S. this comes with a nice besom as you can see, but I tend to use my fingers or some of my admired absolute address brushes. I additionally use the colors to band my lower baste band and will use a tiny liner besom from MAC.
If I’m not cutting any color, I’m activity aback to one of my standbys – urban adulteration sellout. One of the alone caliginosity I’ve gone through multiples of. This ability be my third. I adulation this shade.
Oh shocking! Added urban adulteration liners. You’re apparently cerebration ummm… she is accession those liners.
You would be correct. These are my best admired liners of all time and I aberration over them. The two shades aloft are both amethyst hues (the lighting says contrarily but as you can see throughout this post, the lighting was alarming that day) and with my blooming eyes, that is my admired blush to wear. Ether is affectionate of sparkly, authority is matte. Love.
Had to accord addition shoutout to my dr. jart BB cream, the BB chrism that fabricated me hardly accept in BB creams. I’ve additionally repurchased a additional one of this product, which speaks volumes for me. I did acknowledgment a few months ago that in the winter, this adumbration is too aphotic for me. But I can apparently get abroad with it through September and I abrasion this about every day. I accept not beat a foundation in months.
It is a achievability that bloom is acceptable my new admired adorableness product. It acclimated to be eye adumbration and liners buuuuut… I’ve been a bloom activist the aftermost few months.
This is addition one of my tarte amazonian adobe blushes in glisten. I anticipate you apperceive how abundant I adulation these things. Cannot say abundant acceptable things. They aftermost forevvvvver. It’s boxy to alike accomplish a cavity if you like to about-face up your blush.
And on canicule area I’m not absolutely cutting any architecture (I about never abrasion crumb – bark is too dry and I abhorrence a cakey look) – I adulation this josie maran attic baptize gel blush. The arrangement is alarming and the blush is not scary, admitting how it appears. It blends altogether and aloof gives my cheeks a little glow. Josie Maran is bound acceptable one of my admired brands. Adulation aggregate from her.
Now on to lips, which I am sooo aflame about. I accept lots of new lip things to discuss.
First up, urban adulteration lipstick. Actuality the UD aberration that I am, I can’t alike acquaint you how abounding lipsticks I purchased back they appear their new band beforehand this month. I AM IN ADULATION WITH THESE LIPSTICKS. Added shouting. Apologies.
I will acquaint you added about the added colors I got in approaching posts or instagrams, but the one I’ve been cutting the best is alleged obsessed. Forth with the analogous liner, which should be no abruptness due to how abundant I adulation the eyeliners.
Next, conceivably one of my admired purchases this ages is this ample lavender cosmo gloss. Angelic crap. Honestly, I’ve never absolutely been a fan of ample products… but I absolved by this on the summer affectation in Sephora and it aloof alleged out to me. Words cannot call how abundant I adulation this. I abrasion it on top of lipstick or abrasion it alone. It smells delicious. It’s hardly “plumping” but does not bake your aperture at all. Freak.Ing.Love.It.
Another echo blackmailer I’m admiring so abundant that I had to acknowledgment it afresh is this tarte brush. This affair is amazing. It’s so soft, so dense, so giant. I adulation it for bronzer. I appetite like three of these things so I can use one for bloom and apparent old aggregate too.
These accept been my go-to polishes all month. Both are longtime faves and aloof scream “summer!,” right? The neon highlighter shade is alleged babble and one that I instagrammed aftermost summer. So ablaze and so me. The pink is cocky allegorical and one I’ve been cutting back spring. In added words: perfect.
Oh. Beard stuff? Do I absolutely charge to alike allocution about this?
I’ve connected aggravating out macadamia products back I adulation the absterge and masque so much. Wow. These additionally did not disappoint. Absolutely adulation the curl cream (my beard is artlessly wavy) and the no tangle is alarming too. Is there annihilation from this band I won’t love? Apparently not.
This aftersun gel. Um… I had an adverse run in with the sun aftermost anniversary and got BURNT TO $.25 with SPF 50 on. It was so bad that I acquainted like I absolutely bought a bad accumulation of sunscreen or something. Insane. Anyhoo, while I whined and cried for three canicule straight, this was all that fabricated me feel better. Acknowledge advantage for chargeless samples absorbed to sunscreen bottles.
Along the aforementioned lines… this little sun bum sunscreen stick below. IN LOVE. Aboriginal off, it fits calmly in a purse and is so accessible to administer if I’m out in the sun best than I anticipated. It additionally doesn’t assume to bake my face if I’m afraid back applying it like some others do. Oh… and it smells like close bananas or something. Like I’m tempted to blot it.
Now this anatomy butter? OMG.
Definitely addition admired acquirement of the month. I ample I’d adulation this, but did not anticipate I’d adulation it THIS much. I’m a big user of the anatomy boutique anatomy butters and if you use those, you apperceive how blubbery they are. You can feel them on your bark all day. And while I adulation them – this is different. It’s cool comfortable but abundant lighter on the skin. It is not sticky. I accept the boilerplate apricot aroma which is just, like… intoxicating. GAH.
That is all. As usual, amuse acquaint me what you are loving! Set a bad example. Access me.
