August Favorites!

This month I've been loving the L'Oreal Ever Sleek Intense Smoothing shampoo and conditioner. This one is specifically for frizzy, unruly hair. I have thick, curly, frizzy hair. It's sulfate free, smells like sunflowers. The main ingredients are sunflower, argan and olive oils. It claims to leave your hair smooth and control frizz for 48 hours. I think it really does what it says. It leaves my hair sleek and frizz free even when it's humid outside. You would probably be able to go a week without washing your hair because the scent lasts so long. The only downside to this is that it makes my scalp dry so I would recommend using this for every other wash.

Next is a rediscovered blush favorite. The Rimmel London powder blush in Santa Rose was my favorite blush last summer and I decided to start wearing it again this month. It's a nude peachy pink. It's perfect for natural everyday blush. I love it so much!

I got the L'Oreal Color Riche eyeshadow quad in Cuppa Joe. I bought this for two reasons. It's an all matte eyeshadow palette from the drugstore and those are hard to find. Secondly I bought it because Melissa (MelMPHS on youtube) showed all the shadows in the palette as dupes for MAC shadows. They're really pigmented and last a long time. I originally wasn't going to get it because I have the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette but I compared all the shades and they're all different from the UD palette.

I finally found the new Maybelline Babylips. I got the shade Berry Bomb which is a sheer purple. It may look scary in the tube but it's very natural on the lips. I love it because it gives a natural purple berry tint to my lips and you don't even need to think about it when applying it.

This month I finally found an eye cream that I actually like. It's the Clinique All About Eyes Rich eye cream. My mom actually recommended it to me. She's been using Clinique products for years. She has sensitive skin like me and they never caused any breakouts for her. It's thick and moisturizing therefore it keeps my dry under eye area moisturized. I also find that it reduces puffiness.

Lastly, I've been obsessed with the Bath & Body Works Forever Red fine fragrance mist. The main notes are pomegranate and vanilla. It makes me feel special when I wear it.

This month I challenged myself to read the complete books of Psalms and Proverbs. Proverbs is my favorite book of the Bible so rereading it was very nice. Reading both books together was very helpful and I enjoyed it.
