July Favorites

Summer you really need to just hold your horses and not fly by so quickly. Once summer is over it's all graduate program courses and busier days at work so a nice long summer would be ideal. Yet July just flew by and I'm sharing with you some of my favorite products from the month.

The Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation ($17.13) took me by surprise at the beginning of the month when I used it during a weeks worth of different foundations. I had sort of written it off as an "ok" foundation, but after wearing it during that week I fell head over heels for it. It blends in well, provides the light but decent coverage I look for, and makes the skin look radiant.

I love all my new  Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows (€6,90) dearly, but "06 Marrone Durato" has to be my favorite. It's a gorgeous shimmery bronze shade that doesn't come off too yellow. These sticks are so easy to use and in seconds you have a put together eye shadow look with little to no effort.

I've been all about the MAC lipsticks ($16 each) this month and have become obsessed with "See Sheer" and "Chatterbox". I find that "See Sheer" is much easier to wear on a daily basis, but "Chatterbox" has to be my favorite lipstick when I'm looking for something a little bolder and different. It's a pinky/coral shade but incredibly vibrant and bright.

You're going to get tired of how much I'm going to be talking about Essie's "Splash of Grenadine" ($8.50) this summer so I'm going to keep it short and sweet. It's perfect. Pink but purple and not too bold but makes a statement. You need this polish.

  1. I really need to do a beautiful swap in someone in the UK to get the Wake Me Up foundation. Anyone know why Rimmel doesn't sell that in the US? I've seen the concealer here but never the foundation. Bugger! I Looooove Chatterbox. I haven't used it in ages and this makes me want to put it on a-sap!


  2. The Rimmel Wake Me Up is one of my all time favorite foundations, I love the slightly glowy finish it gives. Oh and I'm so jealous of how MAC lipsticks are that much cheaper in the US. I got my first one recently (because we didn't have a store nearby til now) and they're frickin' $27 each. Gotta love them though! :P

  3. I've wanted Chatterbox for so long. I really don't know why I haven't just made it mine yet!! I'll probably pick it up after reading this post.
