July Favorites!!


With the end of July comes July Favorites!! So here are the products that I have been loving this month.

Rimmel's In Vogue 038
I like a good pink lipstick in the summer and this one by Rimmel has been my favorite this month. I like the formula, it smells pretty good and it is a beautiful bright fuchsia  pink color. If you haven't tried this one I would highly recommend it because it is very flattering.

essence 3D single shadow in the color irresistible mermaid kiss 
I picked up this color because I don't have anything like it in my collection. I love the shimmery minty blue shade and you don't have to do much with it to create a nice eye shadow look. I usually just wear it with some black eyeliner.

 Aussie hair conditioners
I love the Aussie Moist line of hair products. The conditioner is great to use if you need to replenish moisture. The 3 minute miracle smells great and makes my hair nice and soft, it is also my preferred conditioner for travel since it is a convenient size. The Hair insurance leave-in conditioner gives me some hold without drying out my hair. 
TIP: I also use the Aussie moist conditioner to shave my legs with! People actually ask me how I get my skin so soft and smooth and it is because I use this conditioner instead of shaving gels or creams! It gives you a nice smooth shave and your legs will feel soooo soft!! Try it. 


Wet n Wild Mega Last 212C Heat Wave
This is a beautiful coral color and I like the extra wide brush on the Megalast polishes, it makes it super easy to apply the polish.
Sephora lip gloss
When I am not wearing bright lipsticks I like to wear simple gloss. These 3 colors compliments many skin tones. They are not very pigmented but they are pretty.

eos lip balms. My fav!

Sugar Lip Balms
when I'm not using my eos lip balms which are my all time favorites I usually wear the Sugar balms. The one in the wine colored tube is clear and the pink color is called rose. It gives my lips a rather natural tint while also leaving them moisturized. They aren't as long lasting as the eos but they are still rather good.

Clean and Clear continuous control acne wash
This face wash works for me because it doesn't cause my skin to become irritated. It helps fight break outs by providing a deep clean and contains salicylic acid. It is oil free and leaves my skin a tad dry so I do need to moisturize after I cleanse which isn't a big deal. I love that this cleanser pumps out of the bottle already foamy, this makes it easier to lather onto my face.

Pink Jewelry Box
I found this pink jeweled box in Dubai at a store called Carrefour which is almost equivalent to Walmart in North America. I thought it would be perfect for small jewelry. 

Lipstick organizers
I bought 2 of these lipstick organizers from Winners but you can also find them online. They make it very easy to keep all your lipsticks and glosses neat and in one place. They were $12.99 each. They also come in different shapes and designs. To check out my other makeup storage ideas CLICK HERE

Oikos Cherry Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is very good for you, it contains a lot of good bacteria that is healthy for your digestive system. This Oikos Greek yogurt is thick, rich, creamy and the cherries add a delicious sweetness. It comes in other flavors but cherries are my favorite fruit.

Favorite book this month
A thousand Splendid Suns
This month I didn't read a book that really stood out to me so I decided to add one of my all time favorite novels A Thousand Splendid Suns. This novel is about a girl who is the result of an affair and her life after being forced into marriage at a very young age. I don't want to give too much away but this is an amazing story.

What were some of your favorites in July month? Leave a comment and let me know

  1. That is such a nice shade of lipstick(rimmel). I love pink lipsticks too. I have never tried the Aussie shampoo. I may need to buy that after my current shampoos finish. The Jewelry box from Dubai is so beautiful. Great post as usual hun :)

    1. These are actually conditioners, I have never tried the shampoo either because I don't use shampoos that contain sulfates.

    1. I have tried the Aveeeno foaming face wash as well, I think I prefer the regular Aveeno face wash over the foaming one and I prefer this Clean and Clear foaming wash lol.

  15. What kinds of EOS are those? I have the Strawberry Sorbet, and my friend swears by Sweet Mint.
    Also, A Thousand Splendid Suns is one of my faves, too! I liked it more than The Kite Runner.
