Hey Voguers!!!! HAPPY AUGUST! I can’t believe that it’s August already…like where did the time go?! ahhh! Anywhoo, Today I will be sharing with you my favorite beauty products for the month of July! Can’t wait to share with you and hear your thoughts on the products as well! I will put where these products are from and get the prices for you guys!!
I’ll start with the back left…let’s go!
1. Shea Moisture: Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie…. I LOVE THIS!!!! I’ve been using this in my hair since I did the BC(Big Chop) earlier this year in April… Basically it’s a curl enhancer.. I wet my hair in the morning and apply this to my hair & then I use another product I’ll mention later in this post. It really makes my curls pop and I love that considering the fact that my curls are very tight… almost like coils… I love the enhancement it gives my hair… gives it life! (CVS $12.99)
2.KISS Aqua BB cream:* disclaimer* “Evens out skin tone, covers & conceals, brightens & nourishes”… I can say all that is definitely true! I was on the hunt for a good full coverage BB cream…So I searched in YouTube (like always) and this product popped up! I don’t like to wear foundation in the Summer months, just because it gets too hot and I don’t like heat & melting makeup etc…that’s not hot! It’s lightweight and it doesn’t feel like you have anything on… you can set it with powder or you don’t have too. My personal preference is to set it with powder. I believe any makeup that is liquid base needs to be set with powder. Just gives it that extra security & makes it stay in place. — and it’s good for sensitive and acne prone skin! (Local Beauty Supply $5.99 I THINK)
3. Crème of Nature Oil Treatment with Argan Oil: I use this right after I apply the Curl Enhancer^^ to my hair. It helps repair dry, damaged hair, helps strengthens, & prevents breakage. I like it because it helps my hair shine . My hair never looks dry when I use this… If I don’t use this I use extra virgin olive oil. (CVS $9.00)
4.Olay Fresh Effects “Out of This Swirled”: it’s a deep pore clean and exfoliating scrub & OMG I LOVEEEEE this stuff!!! Now this product has Honeysuckle & White Tea in it…they do have other scents you can try. My face feels so clean after this and not dry. Usually after I use an exfoliator , my face feels super dry! I like that with this, it still feels good. The only complaint I have is that it doesn’t help my oily t-zone… this product is oil free and I don’t really understand why nothing helps my t-zone not get so oily!(have suggestions- def let me know!) (CVS $7.99)
5.Wet N Wild by Fergie (To reflect shimmer palette): I love this! It gives me a nice summer glow! + it was super cheap!(CVS $5.99)
6.Maybelline Master Glaze(color- warm nude): It’s a blush stick , it’s so cute! It does have little shimmers in it which I love and it gives a really nice glow and stuff! You can even use it on your lips!!!! I do! It looks awesome under some lipgloss! Very Dewy look…you can use it for highlighting as well! (CVS $8.99)
7.Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara: I love this mascara….it’s the only one I’ve been using since I got this! It lengthens and gives volume to my lashes.(CVS $7.99)
8.L’Oreal Telescopic Liquid Liner: Now , let me tell you…I’ve NEVER been a fan of liquid liner…I’m very old school when it comes to eyeliner… Most of my liners are pencil liners…it’s just easier and less mess to me! BUT for some reason I like this! It goes on very well, and stays for hours…all day actually! Some people have complaints about the applicator because it’s a rubber stick… I don’t mind that… (CVS $9.99)
9. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm (Color: 230 Complex): First off I love that it’s a matte balm…I haven’t used one before . I wore it to school one day and just loved it. I loved the way it looks on me. I’m a very neutral person, I love neutral colors(that’s why most of my makeup products are nudes). I give this balm 2 thumbs up! I have no complaints!(CVS $9.49)
10. Olay Fresh Effects “Bright on Schedule”: It’s an eye awakening cream. If you’re like me and have to get up early in the mornings for work or whatever you have to do in the morning.. you need this product. I look like a zombie in the mornings , plus I’m very grumpy. So after I wash my face with the scrub(I mentioned above) I use this…It squeezes out and it has massage balls on the tip of the container… apply it and massage it for 30 seconds under your eyes and then rub it in with your fingers. It instantly brightens your eyes and makes you look awake…even if you haven’t had your coffee for the day yet!(CVS $13.99)
