July Favorites

I hope everyone had a great July.  Now that August is here, I have a bunch of products to share that I really enjoyed during the Month of July.  I feel like I tried a lot of new things, so this months list is HUGE, so let's jump right in.

Gold Lust Repair & Restore Shampoo and Conditioner, Oribe - I love Oribe products.  They are rather pricey but smell amazing and work really well.  I was in the market for new shampoo and conditioner and eager to try a pair from Oribe.  After researching just about every product in their line, I decided on this Gold Lust duo. 

Flex Shaping Hairspray, Living Proof - This came in a Living Proof 500 Point perk from Sephora.  I kind of tossed it aside at first but then found myself with so many smaller sized hairsprays that I started using them up.  This was one that I found myself really enjoying.  It gives good hold, but feels so light on the hair that it almost feels as if you are not wearing hairspray at all.  I am considering buying this full size, I liked it that much. 

Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp, NYX - I saw this in Pretty Shiny Sparkly's June Favorites and really loved the color.  I had used these creams in the past and loved them, so I had to run right out and buy this.

Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Always Apricot, L'Oreal - I am in love with this color.  It is a beautiful soft reddish orange color that can be worn day or night. 

Vitality Lip Flush 4-in-1 Reviver Lipstick Stain in Pretty Woman, It Cosmetics - In the tube this looks like something I would have worn in the 90s but sheered out on the lips it gives such a great berry stain.  I also really love the formula on this.  It is super moisturizing and I love that it is an anti-aging lip balm. 

Long Lasting Nail Lacquer in Hot Coral, Estee Lauder - This is one of two colors that I wore all month.  When I wanted a bright color, this is what I grabbed for. This is more of a reddish coral and remains me of poppies.

Essie Urban Jungle Nail Polish - The first time I saw this polish, I had to have it.  It is the color I have been waiting for for years and the color I have been wearing when not wearing Hot Coral.  I love the look of white nails, but stark white is just too harsh for me.  This is a softer hue with just a hint of cream so it doesn't look like you put white out on your nails.  LOVE IT!

Color Mascara in Purple, NYX - I always wear purple eyeliner.  It adds just a bit of color to my eyes and makes my eyes pop.  Every once in a while I also like to wear a purple mascara (for the same reasons).  This one is inexpensive and very pigmented and vibrant.  I usually tone it down slightly by using one coat of black mascara underneath for just a subtle dose of color, but on it's own it is gorgeous.

Playsticks, Benefit Cosmetics - I used to use Playsticks a million years ago and loved the coverage.  I didn't know Benefit still made them until I spotted them in Ulta one afternoon.  These are an all in one product (foundation, concealer and powder) so like to keep it in my bag for touchups through out the day. Super easy!

Shea Butter White Lily Hand Cream, Perlier - This is a product that was sent to me and when I received it, I was surprised at how huge it is.  After using it, I was further surprised with just how moisturizing it was.  I use hand cream numerous times throughout the day but with this, I didn't need to reapply at all.

Stay Clear Cream, Evologie - I received this in a Birchbox forever ago and tossed it to the side.  I finally tried it when I finish up my Proactiv repair cream and was please with how much I liked it.  It is pretty comparable to my Proactiv cream.

Tuscan Blood Orange Hand Cream, Pacifica - Blood Orange is one of my favorite scents and I have loved this scent from Pacifica for years.  This has been a handbag staple all month.  Every time I pull it out people comment on how great it smells. And on the plus, it is super moisturizing.

Scandal Eyes Retoglam Mascara, Rimmel London - This may just end up being my favorite drugstore mascara.  I love the full wand and the formula really lengthens and volumizes my lashes.  

What were you favorite products last month?
