So here are my well loved products for the month of July:
MOROCCANOIL LIGHT TREATMENT
I purchased a small 1 oz bottle of this oil after hearing the world rave about it's wonders. I don't have particularly problematic hair, but my ends often feel parched and I don't get regular trims as I am growing out my hair (controversial, I know). I picked up the Moroccanoil Light which is formulated for gals like myself with fine hair. I apply this to towel dried hair (from my ears down, avoiding the roots) after every hair washing and I've seen a big difference in my hair from just a month's use. My ends never look or feel dry and my hair looks generally healthier. I was a bit of a skeptic about this super hyped hair oil but I'm definitely on the bandwagon and plan on purchasing a bigger bottle when this one runs out (which will likely take a long time as I use a small amount with every use). My favorite thing about the oil is that it doesn't weigh down the hair and never leaves a greasy film. Another bonus, it smell great!
GOODY HAIR TIES
These are simply the best elastics I've ever had. I like that they look like little bracelets when you wear them on your wrist and that they cause less damage to the hair shaft than a regular elastic. Because they look like colorful ribbons, they are harder to lose (I've only lost 1/5 thus far). These elastics are perfect for holding your hair in place without budging all day, no more sagging ponytails for me! If you have 5 dollars to spare, I would recommend picking up a pack.
RIMMEL SCANDALEYES WATERPROOF KOHL KAJAL IN BRONZE
A great brown eyeliner that makes blue eyes look super blue. These are my favorite drugstore liners and this eyeliner has been great for lazy days when I can't be bothered with eyeshadow but still want to look put together. My pencil has seen a lot of love and is looking worse for wear, I see a repurchase in my future (once it has been worn down to a little nub, of course!).
NARS MADLY BLUSH
One of my favorite NARS blushes. Madly is a super pretty reddish brown with a golden shimmer. I'm not sure if I would call this a blush or a bronzer but it's perfect to sweep across the cheeks for a bronzed golden glow.
DIOR ROUGE IN TRAFALGAR
I've been pulling out this little number on night's out when I want to look glamorous without having to do a full face of makeup. I love the look of an orangey red lip with contoured cheeks and a very simple eye. It's been well documented that this is one of my favorite lipsticks and a perfect pick for summer nights.
CLARINS ROUGE ECLAT LIPSTICK IN NUDE ROSE
This is an easy mauvey pink that looks pretty without looking overdone. I've gained a new appreciation for natural looking lipsticks that almost mimic the actual color of lips- except look better (often refered to as "my lips but better"). A great color for work environments that don't accept bold makeup looks and moisturizing enough to battle the drying effects of air conditioning.
So that's the line-up for the month of July. What are your hot weather favorites of the past month?
Thanks for reading.
