beauty fashion makeup monthly favourites personal review

July Favorites!

August 7, 2017

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

This month I loved the most those 4 items I’m gonna share with you! Three of them are makeup products perfect for the hot summer weather and for getting that bronzed no makeup look!

Let’s start with the bronzer!

This Estee Lauder Bronzer is the only bronzer I ever had purchased and used. But let me tell you. Oh boi! It’s a winner! It’s so natural and since now I’m more tanned than usual (read: tanned at all) it gives me that amazing summer bronzy glow and warmth. I love to use it everyday. You can get it in 4 different shades, I went for medium. Nowadays my morning routine consists only of Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream, some Sephora concealer for my purple undereyes, this bronzer and Benefit Ka-Brow! to give my brows more definition and I’m good to go! So minimal, but I feel great! I never felt so good while using so little makeup! This gorgeous bronzer really makes you feel like a bronze Goddess! And come on, the packaging is just goals! <3

(I love this one a lot, but still need to try the classic of the classics Benefit Hoola! Have you tried it yourself?)

Second fave that I already mentioned is Ka-Brow! by Benefit. I was looking for something that could define my brows a little bit more than brow mascara I use everyday from NYX. This product gives me everything I always was looking for. I don’t like brow pencils anymore because I get through them way to fast. With this, I feel like it’s gonna last me a decent amount of time and it has a super-duper cute tiny brush to go with it. What more a girl can wish for from a brow product?

With this NYX Setting Spray I can really see the difference with how my makeup stays on the whole day. I use it on days that I know I’ll be spending out or for a special events. Before I was using it everyday instead of powder, but I’ve learnt it can make my skin a little dry, so I just prefer to go with a translucent powder and touch up my makeup if necessary. The price is very good for the quality. Definitely gonna go for a second bottle when this one finishes.

Do you have your favorite setting spray? Please, tell me in the comments! I’d love to try something new!

Last favorite of this month are my new Steve Madden stilettos! I got them as a gift from my boyfriend and I love them so so much! I’m not used to such a high heel (12 cm/4.7 inches) and I couldn’t save my live by walking in them, but I’m trying! I put them on almost everyday and just practise while cleaning the house or cooking. I can already catch my balance so… haha! Those shoes are very comfortable considering their hight and shape but are definitely not shoes made for walking. Or at least a lot of walking. Who is super brave and strong (and my role model) and walks in these kind of shoes without problem?? I want to salute you!

 

What are your monthly favourites? Share in the comments! I’d love to hear some reccomendations!

    […] Matte Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics. I recently purchased it in Sephora. Finally! In a previous month’s favorites I’m gushing over Bronze Goddess by Esteé Lauder and then never have tried Hoola. Well I have […]

      i think for its price it does a decent job, but i’m sure you still can get better ones maybe from Urban Decay, but they’re obviously more expensive. xx

        Yeah the Urban Decay setting spray is the bomb but have to save a few pennies for that! 😂 Great to hear the NYX one does a good job for the price, I’ve used NYX products for a while now and can’t fault them so far 🙂 xx

        I will definitely have to get my hands on that bronzer; and the shoes are relatively comfortable in comparison with some other heels that I own! It definitely took a little breaking in, but after a week or so my feet had adjusted and I don’t have any problems with them! xoxo
