July Beauty Favorites!

July Beauty Favorites

The month of July is coming to a close, that is not possible, I still remember it just being the 4th of July! I have just a few products I have been loving this month, I'm still working on using up some products, which you guys will see soon in my Product Empties + Mini Reviews.

I hope you guys are having a wonderful summer! I will be taking a trip to Chicago next week, so also look forward to a Chicago Beauty Haul very soon!

Let's get in to the favorites!

LORAC POREfection Mattifying Face Primer
$32 (1.7 oz)

I have been trying to find a primer that will help control the shine on my face that has been out of control this month due to the heat and humidity. 

I went back to an old favorite, the LORAC POREfection primer. This primer is a clear silicone based texture that helps fill in my pores, makes my foundations apply easier, and does help control shine longer than other primers I have tried. Just a great primer for everyone except dry skin types, and perfect for those with normal to oily skin and those who want to fill in those pores! Does not break me out, it's paraben-free, and if you have acne prone skin, this also contains salicylic acid! Love it! 

This is available in-store and online at Ulta, and the LORAC website. *The size seen here is a deluxe sample size, not full size.

NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade
$6.99 (0.18 oz)

I picked the NYX Tame & Frame up recently and I am already in love with it! As someone with more sparse brows, I like to fill in my brows so they have a strong look to them. The color match is perfect for me, I use the shade Brunette, it's not too warm and doesn't make my brows look too dark. The pomade lasts all day and does not fade, and it's paraben-free!

This is available in-store and online at Ulta, the NYX Website, and select Target locations.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer
$28 (0.16 oz)

It can be very difficult to find a multiple purpose concealer that you can use for both under the eyes and the face. But Urban Decay did it right with their Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer! 

I have the shade "Light Neutral", which is the 3rd lightest shade. This shade matches my skin tone almost exactly. For reference, I am an NC20 in MAC. This concealer blends so easily onto the skin, has a solid medium coverage, but doesn't look cakey under the eyes or fade throughout the day. However, it will crease if you do not set it with a powder. For those with light to moderate under eye darkness, this will help cover it and look flawless. If you're in the market for a concealer for the face for those days when you don't want to wear a full face of foundation, it's perfection! I've been doing that all month under a light power!

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in "Gavi"
$24 (0.05 oz)

I have been on a mission to find healthier lip product options, but not sacrifice pigmentation and longevity. Well I think I have found my new favorite! 

The Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayons are very creamy, highly pigmented, and have about a 4 hour wear time. While the shade "Gavi" is only available in a deluxe size, the shade "Amaretto" from the permanent line is a close match. They are both a neutral peachy pink nude, the perfect nude for those with fair to medium skin tones. I have been loving this shade for like makeup days and when I cannot decide what lip color to wear! These lipsticks are made with food-grade ingredients and are a healthier/less toxic option than traditional lipsticks. Spoiler alert, I'm going to Sephora next week and WILL be purchasing more!
