My Favourite Beauty Products/ July 2016

IMG_4135

Hello my beauts! Yes I am back with another blog post and this one is on different products that I have been trying pretty much for the month of July maybe a little into June as well. I always love looking for new products to try, and sharing the info I have on them with you beautiful people! Before I get into this blog post, I am just going to emphasize this coffee creamer that is literally the bomb and I always use it everyday in my coffee! It is probably old news but I recently just started using it. It’s called Cinnabon coffee creamer by Delight, and omg, it’s beautiful. It literally tastes like a desert, not really sure how good it is for you but honestly who cares, it is worth it. So stop reading this, go make a coffee with that amazing creamer, then come back, got it?

Alright, now let’s get into the products that I have been loving and want to share with you beauts! I have ordered a few products from Sephora online, so I will let you guys know in another blog post if I love the products or not, but I am super excited to try them! I ordered the new Cover FX Enhancer drops, more specifically in the shade “Moonlight”. I will let you guys know if the rave about them is true! I pretty much have heard nothing but good things about them! Okay, so the first product that I have been loving after only one use is the new Katy Perry “Katy Kat Matte Lipstick”. I really love any colours that are bright, especially when it comes to summer time. I decided to purchase the lipstick in the shade “Coral Kat”, which is what I am wearing in the photo above. I really love the pigmentation within this lipstick and how beautiful the colour is. I highly recommend trying out this lipstick line, and experimenting with the different shades. I plan on going back to Walmart to purchase more shades as well! You can find this in the Covergirl section at any local drugstore for only $8.00 or so. There are so many different shades to choose from!

The next product that I have been liking a lot is the Urban Decay individual eyeshadows. I have mentioned this product in another one of my previous blogs before, but I purchased a different shade this time. It’s funny because I meant to purchase the shade that I had discussed before that I loved, ” MidnightCowgirl”, but accidently bought “Midnight Cowboy”. I do however like this shade as well, it is not as bright as cowgirl but it is very similar. You can purchase these at Sephora for $22.00, and there are many other different shades to choose from! This is a very shimmery eyeshadow, but looks flawless with a nice brown/taupe crease.

The next product that I love I had actually won at a Stag and Doe, as it was a part of a gift basket. I really love the scent of this product, and it really does moisturize your body. I use this moisturizer on my hands, and will repurchase this product when I am all done! The one that I love is called “Triple Moisture”, and I believe you can purchase these at any drugstore. There are different scents and kinds to choose from!

The next line of products I personally love! I may have mentioned these products in previous blogs but decided to discuss them again! This brand of makeup is extremely cheap which is amazing, and the quality of the products are great as well! You can find this brand “Essence” at any drugstore, as I had purchased these from Shoppers. These products are all under $5.00! Can you believe it? I really do love these two mascaras, and would highly recommend trying them out for yourself! The pink one called “I love extreme crazy volume mascara”, is amazing for lengthening your lashes as well as giving them the right amount of volume. The brow gel  is amazing as well, and distributes just the right amount of product to the brows. I usually use this product one I have outlined my brows with the dipbrow from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Since working at a daycare, I have been trying out different cute hairstyles that are classy/girly.  I really have been loving putting bows in my hair, usually underneath buns. I purchased these bows at Ardenes for a really cheap price, and there were so many different ones to choose from! I think I purchased around 5 in all different colours. I really love the taupe/brown shades, as they look super classy and elegant. Try these out for yourself! These bows also look super cute with half up hair styles!

The next product I purchased because it was on sale. I really have not researched too much about this beauty product but was super happy when the lightest shade was the one that was on sale! I use this product as a highlighter for under my eyes, forehead and on the bridge of my nose. This product is super pigmented and helps achieve that “awake” look. You can purchase it at any drugstore, it is called “L’oreal Visible Blur Concealer”. I was lucky and got mine on sale for literally $3.oo, but you can purchase this for $13.00.

I am always on the hunt for new concealers/highlighters! I have a mixture at home of high end highlighters and drug store highlighters as well. I was browsing in Shoppers one day and decided to give this little guy a try! I bought this for $8.00 from NYX Cosmetics and I am loving it! I honestly always use concealers as highlighters, I just buy the fairest and lightest shade possible. I highly recommend trying this out for yourself and tell me what you think!

So guys, I have a huge hype to discuss with yous. While I was working on this blog earlier on in the week, my online Sephora package came in! I tried out all my products that I had received and pretty much fell in love with every single one of them. I ordered the Cover Fx Enhancer Drops in the shade Moonlight because it was sold out in stores. This is a liquid highlighter that is just absolutely gorgeous. I love love love how pigmented it is, and could not be any happier with the shade I picked. There are many different shades to choose from, but I found this shade to be more of a champagne pigment to it. I love how shimmery it is when applied to the cheekbones. I will say however that this product needs to be blended properly to give the desired effect or else you will have harsh bright lines. This product was not that cheap however sadly. I paid $52.00 for it, but I truly believe it is worth it 100%. After I let this product sit and settle on my face, I go in with my baked powder highlighter and apply this over top.

As you can see , I swatched the shade for you on my hand without any editing applied.

How beautiful is this shade? The applicator is a dropper that helps distribute the makeup easier, which is awesome!

The next few product that I am going to discuss are so gorgeous. I received these from my reward points that I have been collecting over the months from Sephora. I got the package called “Tarte Tartiest Tools”, and had the opportunity to try out different Tarte products. The first product is called the Tartiest Mascara. It comes with a spiky brush and the formula is not too wet. Personally it was not one of my absolute favourite mascaras but it is still very good. Probably because I am still hooked on my L’oreal Telescopic Mascara!

The next two products look beautiful together and that is the Lip Paint and the Lip Liner. I absolutely love this lip paint. I was not too sure if I would like it or not mainly because I do not usually wear dark lipsticks whatsoever. After applying this on my lips I was blown away at how good these two products looked. The formula goes on wet, then dries in a short amount of time. I really love this shade, and it complimented the rest of my makeup so well! I will post a picture below of the shade on my lips.

Shade- Hangry

(This colour looks beautiful for the summer time, and would be perfect for both during the day and night).

Shade- Mood Ring

The next product that I received in my rewards package was rather neat and interesting. It is a clay based eyeliner that came with a nice angled brush. This clay paint liner in the shade Bronze looked beautiful on top of my eyelids. I really love the brown liner and the formula was rather neat to work with. It is however, a bit hard to control the formula when squeezing it out, but once you get the hang of it, it gets easier. I really love the angled brush that came with it as well!
