I’m not okay with July being over. I always find August to be such a bittersweet month of summer ending, yet beautiful weather. I’m not very accepting of September and I spend the whole month of August dreading it’s arrival. This August brings a lot with it. One of my best friends moving too far for me to handle, weddings up the wazoo, and a few cool things coming up on the blog within the next few weeks. These monthly posts are great for reflecting back on those things I loved for the month, but I’m starting to find they are acting as a pep talk for the month ahead.
So here we go, what 5 products did I love this past month? As I think back on my plans to save some money in the month I failed miserably, so there are a few new ones. I’d have to say that my top pick for the month would have to be the Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in the shade Orchid. We all know my love of these lipsticks and you can read my original review of them here, but this one is much brighter than those I’ve tried in the past and I LOVE the pop of colour for the summer, especially since I still seem to be wearing only black in a heatwave.
I have two eye products in my top 5 this month. These are two products that I have used almost every single day in July and I can’t get enough of. The first is the MAybelline Leather Effect 24H Color Tattoo in the shade Creamy Beige. Not only is this a great base for any look, it’s also perfect on its own. Sometimes I may add a tiny bit of brown to the outer corners to give a slight smokey look, but its so easy and long lasting. The second product is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara which I raved about recently here. I’m in love. Simple as that. Maybelline has really been killing it in the eye dept. lately.
Number 4 and 5 are tricky ones since nothing else in particular stands out above the rest. I’ve been really enjoying quite a few things this month. But to pick something from that group I’d say Essie Millionails has been a real lifesaver lately and some good old-fashioned sun screen. With weddings coming up I’m trying to give my manicurist the best nails to work with. But after growing so long they get floppy and bendy and break so easily. So Essie’s kevlar filled Millionails came to my rescue. See a review here. And for summer sun protection its always the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen.
