In July, I tried tons of products but I really haven’t been able to say whether or not a lot were my favorites yet so I have been relying on some oldies but goodies.
L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte in Shell Beige – This is one of my all time favorite foundations and ultimately when my skin is acting up I turn to this as I find it doesn’t clog my pours, gives me full coverage with a matte finish, and I always know I can count on it to look fabulous. You can find it at your local drug store or Ulta. Retail cost $12.99
Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Natural – I haven’t been doing a lot of contouring lately but have wanted to bronze up my face for summer and this wonderful bronzing powder has been really working with my skin tone. You can do additional contouring with it as well since it doesn’t have shimmer as well. Retail cost $42
Ardency Inn Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Liner in Black – This is the BEST and only eye pencil I have found that stays on my water line. I like to tight line daily and this is the only pencil that holds for an extended period of time. Retail cost $20
Estee Lauder Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick – I have never found a primer or pore minimizer that not only works well but also works with my skin. Most pore minimizers tend to clog my pores and break me out. This wonderful “wonder stick” has been the best thing I have ever found. It doesn’t break me out and actually reduces the size of my pores. It does not help with mattifying, smoothing, or longevity of my foundation but because my foundation works well in those aspects, this stick works so well for me. Retail cost $28
Bath & Body Works 3 Wick Candle in Mango Coconut Cooler – I am a candle junkie. I buy them from everywhere and anywhere as long as they smell good. I find the Bath & Body Works 3-Wick candles are the best. They burn evenly and continually give off scent without over powering you. My favorite scent right now is the Mango Coconut Cooler. Perfect for summer and keeps me refreshed all day. Retail cost $22.50 but they have sales all the time so wait until a sale pops up.
