July Beauty Favorites!

I honestly can't believe that July is already over. It feels like the month just started. This summer is going by way too fast for my liking. Anyways, here are some products that I've been loving this month.

Batiste Dry Shampoo
I've heard about this product for years. I'm pretty sure everyone and their mother has tried this product and I'm probably the last person to try it. I was hesitant about trying this dry shampoo because I heard it leaves a white cast on dark hair. It can leave a white cast but I use it at night and I don't notice any white cast in the morning. This is the best dry shampoo that I've ever tried because it instantly makes my hair look like it's been freshly washed. I'm extremely happy with the results of this dry shampoo.

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Between The Sheets 
I was never a big fan of creme blushes because they always look like they never set on me. The Colourpop blushes are amazing because they're kind of like a creme to powder product. Once the product sets it's not going anywhere and lasts all day. When I take off my makeup after a long day of wearing this blush it still looks like I just applied it. A little goes a very long way because it is extremely pigmented. I like applying it with a stippling brush or a beauty blender. Between The Sheets is a neutral pink shade. I wish I could buy every single shade in the range.

theBalm Mary Lou Manizer
This highlighter has been raved about all over youtube and beauty blogs for years. I was always afraid to try it because it's an intense highlight. I'm so glad that I tried it because it looks beautiful when worn. All the hype surrounding this product is true. I would describe the colour as a champagne gold leaning more towards gold. I like to wear it as a highlighter and eyeshadow. When worn as eyeshadow it just pops on your eyelids. It's so pigmented and you need to use a light hand with it, especially if you're fair like me. I don't know why I went this long without having this product in my makeup stash.

  1. Batiste's dry shampoo was the first I ever tried and though I really liked it at the time, I've moved on, hah. I think it was the worst in terms of giving me white cast. Though I really like Mary-Lou, I wish it came in a smaller size because ain't no way I'm ever finishing it!

    1. The first time I tried Mary Lou as eyeshadow my first thought was, "Whoa!" but once I blended it out I liked the colour. A smaller size would have been good because even if I were to use it every single day I don't think I would ever finish it either. I have a love/hate relationship with dry shampoo. I feel like they all work great at the beginning but over time their magic hair refreshing abilities stops working. Then I end up trying a new one.
