July Beauty Favorites!

image

Hello beauties! It’s time for my July 2014 favorites!

It’s been a busy and stressful month for me, so I’m sorry I haven’t been posting as much, especially reviews. I don’t have a lot of favorites this month, but here are the things I’ve been loving!

image

The first thing I’ve been obsessed with is the Urban Decay Ammo Palette. This is such a gorgeous palette and I’ve been using it a ton!

image

The next thing that’s been getting a lot of use is my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette. This is a great neutral palette, especially for those of us who are more color lovers than neutral lovers, because you can pull what you don’t get from colorful palettes from here, like a highlight, transition, or deepening shade. 

image

I am so impressed with Be A Bombshell’s eyeshadows, especially this quad, called the Barcelona quad. I absolutely love it for a dramatic cool look! 

image

I’m pretty sure this is the only highlighter I’ve used this month, which is rare for me! This is the Mary-Loumanizer from the Balm. 

image

Since the Mary-Loumanizer is super intense, a lighter application technique is needed, so I’ve been using this Elf Fan Brush, which is amazing. 

image

Next up are two Nyx Butter Lipsticks, which I absolutely adore. Fun Size and Gumdrop have been my favorites this month. 

image

The next thing is from Bare Minerals. I have a deluxe sample of it here. This is the Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip. I absolutely love this (way more than I was expecting too, actually). It looks super light and natural, so it makes application a breeze. 

image

The Smoochies Lipsticks by Covergirl are super popular in the beauty community, so I finally decided to try one! This is #alter-ego and I absolutely love it!!

image

Finally, we have a Nyx Butter Gloss in Meringue. I’m not normally a lip gloss lover, but I’m in love with these Nyx Butter Glosses, especially this one! It’s super pigmented and has a gorgeous shine to it. 

That’s it for July Faves!! What were your favorites this month?

Nyx Butter Lipstick Review!

Hello! Today I am so excited to review the Nyx Butter Lipsticks. Since their release, they have been very popular in the beauty community. Some people love them, and some people don’t think they’re anything special. 

I actually really love these, and I can’t wait to get more!

These lipsticks are available in 22 shades and are $6 each. 

The formula of these is really nice. They are super creamy and hydrating, and have a pleasant sweet smell. They are not an opaque lipstick, but provide nice, wearable color and some shine. 

This is Fun Size. It is a gorgeous, wearable nude. 

This is Gumdrop. This is a beautiful light pink color that’s perfect for everyday wear. 

This is Hunk. I absolutely love this color. It’s a great berry for Winter that is sheer and light enough to be worn as an everyday color. 

The one drawback of these, in my opinion, is wear-time. While they don’t have a bad wear time, they definitely need to be re-applied every couple of hours to keep them looking fresh and colorful. 

Overall, I really like these. I think the pigmentation and finish makes them super-wearable, which I really love. They’re so easy to work with and pull off, I think they’ll be a staple in my makeup stash.
