My July Beauty Product Favorites
It's the end of the month and that means it's time to round up some of the products I've been loving. I'll break it down by category so you don't get overwhelmed:
Elizabeth Grant Beautiful Colours Professional Tinted Primer & Pore Minimizer - Seriously, this is the best primer ever. It hides all your flaws and holds makeup on all day & night. I've been loving it!
COVERGIRL LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara - It really separates your lashes and lengthens. I then top it off with Dior's Diorshow Mascara for really dramatic evening lashes.
Revlon's ColorBurst Lip Butter - I love this product because it's moisturizing like a lip balm but the color lasts like a lip stain. I use "Sweet Tart" for a bright pop of pink!
Julep Lip Vernis - In my July Julep Maven box I received Julep's lip vernis in Peony and I've been using it ever since. It's the perfect nude shade for my lips. It's a very rich, creamy kind of gloss that smells great!
DHC's Deep Cleansing Oil - I had the pleasure of meeting them at HBA Global Expo and they gave me a sample of their cleansing oil which is what they are famous for. I can see why! This is an absolute must-have product for those of us who are too lazy to take our makeup off at night. You literally cut your steps down to one by washing your face (with makeup on) with this product. Obsessed!
Laszlo Blue Firmarine Face Serum - At Barney's & Harper BAZAAR's Beauty Breakfast, I learned that I needed to be using a serum at night to trap in the moisture and protect my skin. I like this serum by the makers of Erno Laszlo. A little pricey but definitely a product you need to invest in.
Julep Daylight Defense SPF 30 Hands & Face Moisturizer - I received this in my Julep Maven box and didn't think much of it. However, it's very light but moisturizing and has SPF 30 so its a great base for your makeup. I have actually grown quite fond of it!
Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect - I received this product in my June Birchbox... but I'll admit when I'm wrong. I initially didn't like the smell of this product but when you apply it to your hair and blow dry, it smells much better! It makes my hair super soft. Definitely have changed my opinion about this product!
Davis Love Shampoo & Conditioner - I actually used this product awhile ago thanks to my salon stylist. However, I was never able to find the item until I recently discovered it at Eataly! That's right... I snagged their Lovely Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner for Harsh and Frizzy Hair, which contains borage oil. It makes my hair feel so soft. I've missed this product - glad I was able to find it again!
