July 2015 Favorites


Wow, I really can't believe it is almost August! This means that I'm almost done with school and I get to travel again! Let's get started

Here are my July favorites

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess

I received this in my July IPSY Glam bag this month and I absolutely love it, I have been using it almost every day after I got it. You can read my review (here), if you haven't already.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream with SPF 35

I have it in the shade light. I bought this with the Sephora superstar set during Christmas. I'm really happy this is full size! I think I've never mentioned this product on my blog before ( I'm not sure why). Sometimes I use it everyday, sometimes I don't even go near it. The reason is that the bb cream is quite thick, unlike other bb creams that's light weight and runny. I found that it is easy to get too cakey if you apply with your hands or brush. My favorite way to apply it is with my beauty blender. It gives nice coverage, brightens up my complexion and also provide sun protection( very important!!!)  Even though it has SPF, it doesn't give me that white cast when I take flash photo.

With the beauty blender, I can achieve a light weight and medium coverage with the bb cream. I would say it's quite long lasting.

Revlon Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti
Yes it's straight up orange, but it's quite sheer. So when you apply it,  you natural lip color with peek through, for me it creates more of a orangey red color!!!  I love it!

If you are not familiar with Revlon Lip Butter, they are really creamy and most of the color are quite sheer.  Most of them have sparkly glitter but this particular one is just glossy.

CoTz- Face Natural SPF 40 

I did a review on this in my May IPSY Glam bag, read it (here) if you haven already. I have been using this because I've been going to the beach and lake. This is waterproof so I didn't need to worry about it sliding off my face.  This has a sheer coverage but the product is quite thick. I like to apply this with my beauty blender because it is thick and has the consistency of Benefit Porefessional. I would not use this everyday because I typically need more coverage. However, I think this is great in the summer because it is waterproofed and it has SPF.

Be a Bombshell Lip Balm in Ruby

I also got this in my July IPSY Glam bag (here). I have this in my makeup bag since I got it. I really like the sheer coverage with red tint.

Keratherapy Keratin Infused Daily Smoothing Cream

I received this in my June Glam Bag, which I never wrote a post about (Sorry! I never got around to write it, and I think it's too late now, but I have a instagram photo of it here). I hated this product initially because it drives me crazy receiving hair products. However, I read the label and it says that it shortens hair drying time so I gave it a go. Guess what? It actually works! I like to twist my hair up with the towel after I wash them ( just like in the salon) and I'll usually leave it up for a few minutes so I can moisturize my face first. Then I will use squeeze some out and apply to my hair. I start from the end and move up.  It helps that I don't need to spend that much time drying my hair!

That's all for my July favorites. I just realized many things are from my IPSY Glam bag, that means i am actually using those products and they actually have good products! ( not sponsored, I promise!) August is goi to be exciting, I can't wait!
