July Favorites


I have been trying a lot of new products this month and I came away with a few favorites that I am just loving!! 


First on the list is the TreStiQue Highlighter. I received this highlighter stick in my July Glam Bag from Ipsy and I fell in love right away! I think that this highlighter is perfect on its own or as a base for your powdered highlighter. I love the color of this highlighter, it is so pretty and the consistency of this highlighter is great! 


Another July favorite that I received from Ipsy is the LUXIE 215 Small Angled Brush . I love this brush 1. because its Rose Gold and I am obsessed with Rose Gold and 2. it is a cruelty-free makeup brush, Vegan, Paraben Free, and coated with anit-bacterial solution; it is the perfect eyebrow brush. I love to use angled brushes as an eyeliner brush too and I find that it works really well. 


Lately, I have been testing out a few different foundations to try and find the perfect drugstore foundation that has the best coverage for those pesky little spots on my face and I think I have found it! The Neutrogena Skin-Clearing Oil Free Foundation is one of the best drugstore foundations I have tried. I love the coverage it has, it is oil free, and it helps treat your acne with it's Salicylic Acid ingredient. This foundation couldn't be more perfect! 

I have been pairing this foundation with the Benefits Erase Paste Concealer (which is also another July favorite, but I forgot to add it in the pictures) and this concealer is by far the best concealer I have ever tried! It covers any discoloration I have, really erases the site of your acne, and a little bit of this goes a long way. Of course, there will be some sight of bumps but if you want to cover your spots the best you possibly can, then this is the concealer you need! 


I was forced to tried the NYX HD Concealer because when I went to the store, my normal concealer was out of stock and I was not about to drive all over to find one concealer (#LAZY) so I picked up the NYX Concealer and I really liked it! I like the thickness of it and it last a pretty long time. I wear this concealer in a couple shades lighter then my skin color to use as a highlighter. I really like this concealer for under my eyes because it really brightens them up and lasts for a large part of my day. 


Another NYX product that I have been obsessed with is the Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Stockholm. I have been wearing this color almost every single day since i've gotten it and I just really love it! This shade is the PERFECT nude color and it feels amazing! I love these lip creams because they apply very softly and the feel like you have nothing on. For a matte lip product these are pretty moisturizing and they don't really dry out your lips like normal matte lip products do. I think that these lip cremes have seriously become my all time favorite lip product! 


July just screams summer and so does the LORAC TanAlizer Bronzer. This bronzer has been one of, if not the best bronzer that I have tried. I love that it is not too dark and it is just the perfect balance of color and shimmer. I think that this bronzer adds the perfect glow for that tanned summer look. 


This last beauty favorite of mine is the Neutrogena Moisturizer. I love the way that this oil free moisturizer feels, it is the perfect combination of rich and smooth. It applies so smoothly and feels so soft on my skin and this moisturizer won't clog pores so it is great for acne prone skin. I find that Neutrogena is really great when it comes to product for your acne. 



Fashion Favorites 

Despite the fact that it is July and blazing hot, my fashion fav this month has been simple dresses paired with a Jean Jacket and Gladiator Sandals.  


I have also been obsessed with my new necklace that I got from Maccorcrain Collective and right now when you use the code SAMANTHARUTH you will receive 20% off!

  1. Lovely picks! The Lorac bronzer sounds nice. I actually don't think I've ever tried a shimmery bronzer. I want to see what I'm missing out on, haha!
