July Favorites

So it is practically mid-month (okay maybe not exactly mid-month) and I have yet to share my favorites of July.  I am slacking!

Boscia B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++ - This is hands down the best BB Cream I have tried.  I have raved about this all month!  It is self-adjusting, which I LOVE because I am a shade or two too dark for most BB Creams.  It lasts all day, and I feel like my skin is just better by using it. I can't pinpoint exactly how my skin has improved, but it just feels and looks better.
Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray - It took me a while to warm up to this.  It's not a new product for me, but I think I just started using it correctly last month.  At first I didn't see the point, but then I started spraying it on my face before and after putting my make-up on.  It makes my make-up last and eliminates the need for primer.

Sephora Eye Primer Pot - Eye Shadow primer is a must have product and one that I feel is often overlooked.  Primer will help your eyeshadow last and bring out the true color of your shadow.  I have very oily eyelids and shadow usually slides right off my eyes after an hour.  I have tried many eye primer and this has to be one of my favorites.  It is a tiny little jar for just $8, but a little goes a long way.  I let it dry a little before applying my shadow and it really help keep my shadow in place.

Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten - I have been using nothing but cream shadows lately.  At first they scared me and I could never figure out how to apply them, but since I have mastered the application I am really loving them. (I apply with my fingers)  I bought Stila'a smudge pot in kitten while in DC last month and have not stopped wearing this nude pink shimmer.  It is a close match to Chanel's Emerveille and for a fraction of the price. 

Batiste Dry Shampoo - I tried 2 or 3 different dry shampoos in July and hated them, which made me appreciate my all time favorite Batiste all the more. I have been using Batiste for years.  For a while the only scents available were Original and Blush.  Both smelled like a 80 year old woman, but I would always suck it up because I loved the product.  Recently they have been introducing more and more scents in the US.  Brit is my favorite in the product line.  It has a much lighter scent. 

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes - I use cleansing wipes to remove my make-up before washing my face.  These wipe smells great and take off my make-up with little effort.

Body Shop Tea Tree Concealer - I love this concealer (in #2 medium) because it matches my skin perfectly and the packaging is like a lipstick tube, which makes it so easy to apply. 

What were the products you were loving in July??
