Yes, yes, I’m alive! I’m so sorry it’s been so long since I’ve blogged; I’ve been super sick and really just stuck in bed. But I’m back-no worries!
Today is another monthly favorites post; I can’t believe it’s already August! I once again compiled my favorites from this month so I can show you! Let’s get started!
Blood orange San Pellegrino
Hello summer! This yummy carbonated drink tastes like summer in a cup. I have enjoyed this a lot this month out by my kiddie pool or watching a movie with my family. It’s a perfect balance of tart and sweetness for me. I love the crisp, bubbly, and citrus taste of this drink. I wish my local store carried more of the flavors!
NYX Liquid Suede (in Kitten Heels)
You know how much I love the NYX liquid suede lip creams. I bought this one a month or so ago, but I have been really loving it this past couple weeks. It is the perfect, classic red lip! It has good staying power and dries matte pretty quickly. This is a great brand and line to have-I’m hoping they bring out more color options.
Renewing Body Gelee
This is an amazing Arbonne product that I have used almost daily this month. It is a cooling gel that I use on bug bites, sore muscles, or sunburns. I am extremely allergic to certain bug bites and they swell up and stay for weeks; this gelee is my saving grace during the summer! If you are interested in it, you can shop here.
e.l.f Brow Pencil (in neutral brown)
I had been wanting to try this brow pencil for a long time and finally grabbed it a few weeks ago. I haven’t even been able to use it very often (because I have been sick) but I loved it too much not to mention it. It is a perfect color for me and the application is nice. It is highly pigmented; so use a light hand! I was a little shocked at how full and WOW they were the first time I used it, but I’ve got the hang of it now. And I love that it has a spoolie on the end.
Infiniti Pro Curling Wand (by Conair)
Raise your hand if you were really skeptical about the whole “wand craze” (I raised my hand). I really did not think this would be any good; but I was curious to see. I get the craze. My hair looked awesome when I used this; AND it took me no time!! I purchased this at Ulta and it heats up to 400 degrees. The barrel goes from one inch to a half inch and is a ceramic barrel. It was affordable and works great! Here is my hair after the first try:
L.A. Colors- Color Last Nail Polish
I was shopping through my local Walmart for some beauty products and found these little gems. They claim to last up to 10 days and they might not have lasted that long for me but they lasted longer than any other polish does! They have some amazing colors and they are extremely affordable (less than $2 I believe). In the second picture from left to right the colors are: CNP14 Family ties, CNP5 Love, and CNP8 Endless. Go pick up some of these!
Tanya Burr Cosmetics Matte Lip (in Rhubarb and Custard)
Tanya Burr is a UK Youtuber and she has her own line of cosmetics available at certain places. My sister, mom, and I bought a big haul from Feel Unique last month because they ship to the US and carry TB cosmetics. I LOVE this liquid lipstick from her. The color is beautiful and bright but goes matte very quickly. They might be a little harder to get in the US but they are worth the hassle!
