August Favorites

The Body Shop Banana Body Yogurt

2521345

This has been my go-to body moisturizer for Summer especially in August. The consistency of this is so cool. It literally looks like yogurt. It’s a gel based lotion that goes on so smooth and dries almost instantly. Lotions that dry fast are a must for me. I hate the feeling of lotion on my skin especially when I need to get dressed after applying. This is so light-weight and sinks into your skin fast. The smell is incredible as well. It smells just like banana pudding and the smell lasts on your skin for hours. When I apply it at night, I can still smell it the next morning. Personally, I like that.

Colourpop Crème Lux Lipstick in the shade Lay Over

Lay-over-2-a_800x1200

I love the Colourpop Luxe Lips formula and Lay Over has been my staple nude for Summer. Since I am pretty tan, I gravitate towards darker nudes. The formula is very unique. It’s almost feels like a creamy powder and it lasts on my lips for a while. At first I wasn’t keen on the formula, but the more I wore it, the more I realized it’s actually very cool.

Juice Beauty Oil-Free Moisturizer

11288163-1534566723746631

This August I decided to revisit an oldie but a goodie. I discovered Juice Beauty about a year ago and this moisturizer was my holy grail. I hadn’t used it in a while because my acne had cleared up. My acne started coming back at the end of July into August so I decided to try this again. This moisturizer is apart of their blemish clearing range and it definitely works. A little goes a long way because it is a rather thick formula. I love that this hydrates my skin and also treats my acne. Definitely a great clean, organic skincare option for fighting acne.

Too Faced Tutti Frutti Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo in the shade Cherry Bomb
m_5b89408ade6f62ac2e104c9b
I got this blush towards the end of August but it quickly became my favorite blush of all time. When Too Faced announced their Tutti Frutti collection, I was at first hesitant because Too Faced had been launching products left and right. I thought to myself, uhh another fruit collection. Their peach products were a huge hit but it seemed like people were getting tired of them. There was something about the Tutti Frutti collection that drew me in. I knew I had to try one of the blushes. I opted for the cherry blush because I thought it would transfer well into the autumn season. This blush is incredible. It gives your cheeks are beautiful cherry wine flush and the shimmer side acts as a highlighter that melts perfectly into the blush. I highly recommend these.

July Favorites

BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Endless Bronze & Glow
BC_92576_800x800_3
This highlighter has quickly become my favorite highlighter ever. It includes three shades, two highlighters and a bronzer. I swirl my brush through the whole pan and it gives me the most incredible, warm glow. It looks wet on my skin and it doesn’t accentuate texture. Some people were concerned that the bronzer would mix with the highlight and look weird. I can tell you, it doesn’t do that at all. I don’t want to say the bronzer get’s lost on your face, but the product definitely shows up as a true highlight.

Farmacy Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser

bee

Farmacy skincare is my favorite skincare line. After trying some of their products and loving them, I made it my mission to try more. I had been using my Juice Beauty face cleanser and I felt like my skin was building up an immunity to it. I don’t know if you ever notice that after you use a product for so long, it seems to stop working. That may just be me. The Clean Bee cleanser is so light and clean. Farmacy uses all natural ingredients so I know my skin isn’t going to get irritated. This leaves my face feeling refreshed and hydrated.

Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lip in the shades Ocean Ave and Vitamin Sea

lips

The Ultra Blotted Lip formula from Colourpop is my favorite lip formula ever. I hate the feeling of lipstick on my lips. I have always been a chapstick or lip balm kind of girl. However, I love putting some color on my lips. This formula is like nothing else. I would describe the finish as if you had a ice pop and it stained your lips. It’s not an actual lip stain, it’s still considered a liquid lipstick, but the formula is so light and velvety. You have to try it for yourself. These two knew shades are stunning! The red shade, Ocean Ave, makes my lips look so healthy and cherry stained. Vitamin Sea is a beautiful warm nude and also makes my lips look so healthy.

Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan in the shade Tantric 102
2
This bronzer is something special. It would say it’s like a smoothing powder and bronzer in one. It is expensive, but I definitely notice it looks different on my skin than my other bronzers. I got the darker shade because I currently have a tan. I wish Marc would release more shades because this shade is almost still too light for me.

My Favorite Cruelty Free Lip Balms

Lips balms are a staple in my makeup and skincare collection. Every night before bed, I like to put on a thick, lip balm or lip mask. My lips are always very dry, so lip balm is a must in my beauty routine. Here are top picks!

Sara Happ The Lip Slip Balm $24
1
The Lip Slip is one of my favorite balms. It is perfect for an overnight balm because it is thick and super hydrating. I actually wake up the next morning and it’s still on my lips. It has very fine shimmers in it, so you could wear it over lipstick for added dimension and shine.

Kari Gran Naked Lip Whip $20
2
I first heard about Kari Gran on Instagram. I love to discover natural, indie beauty brands and I came across the Lip Whip. They have the Lip Whip in different scents and even tints. Since I use balms before bed, I didn’t want a tinted color. I got the naked peppermint and it’s so nice. I keep this right on my night stand. It’s my current go-to.

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask $26
3
Bite Beauty is one of my favorite brands for lip products. This mask is so thick and smells amazing, exactly like agave syrup. This also comes in different tints, but my favorite is the clear.

Lanolips 101 Ointment Strawberry Multi-Balm $13.50
4
I love Lanolips’s products. Their lip products, balms and hand creams are awesome. Lanolips contains lanolin which is an oil that is extracted from wool. It is the closest oil that mimics our skin’s naturally produced oil. Lanolips acquires their lanolin in a cruelty free manner. Sheep need to be sheered regularly for their own well-being and comfort. Once their wool is sheered, the lanolin is extracted. Don’t worry, no sheep were harmed in the making of these products.

Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom $12
5
Glossier is a well known brand in the beauty world. It seems like every influencer these days is promoting and raving about Glossier. I have to admit, I do enjoy the products I have tried, especially the balm dotcom. I like that this is a multi-purpose balm because I will use this around my mouth where I might get dry. Also on dry spots on my forehead.

Clean Beauty Brands I Want to Try

It feels good to know that what I am putting on my face is made with natural ingredients. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin, so most of the time, fragrances and harsh chemicals bother me. I am always looking for great, clean beauty brands and here’s a few i’m interested in trying.

logorms1rms2rms3

RMS beauty is well known among clean, cruelty free beauty lovers. I can’t believe I have never tried anything from them. Their cream eyeshadows are a star product. Those are number one on my wish list.

RAWW Logo PMS v2 With Tagline 350x175raww1raw2raww3

Raww Cosmetics is an Austrian beauty brand that has both clean makeup and skincare products. I first came across them on instagram and was immediately intrigued. What I love most is that their products are made with superfoods such as kale, ginseng root, avocado oil, green tea, manuka honey and many more. I can only imagine how amazing these products smell and the fragrance is all natural.

I heard about Thrive Causemetics from beauty influencers such as Kathleenlights and Allie Glines. They both raved about their Sun Chaser bronzers. Thrive is unique in the sense that for every product that is sold, a product is donated to a woman in need. Not only is this brand formulated without parabens and sulfates, it also gives back to women. I am always on board with that.

purelogopure1pure2pure3
100percentpure is another well known brand in the clean, cruelty free beauty community. If you go to their website and read their about section, they go into in depth detail about how they have define “natural” and the difference between natural and synthetic ingredients. It’s very fascinating. I want to try their cocoa infused bronzer and their mascara that is infused with berries. Now doesn’t that sound like a delicious treat for your face?

Best Bronzers for Deep Skin Tones

It can definitely be difficult for women and men of deeper complexions to find bronzers that enhance their skin tone. One of my friends who has a deep skin tone actually requested I do a post like this, because she has trouble finding a bronzer that shows up on her skin. I personally don’t have a deep skin tone, but as a beauty blogger who is knowledgable about makeup, I have a good idea of what products may work for any of you with deeper complexions. I wanted to give you guys as many options as I could, so if you want to see more posts of different products for deeper skin tones such as highlighters, eyeshadows, etc, comment below!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Bronzer in Mahogany

s1942150-main-zoom

These bronzers are new to ABH and I have heard amazing things. It has a matte finish with a beautiful, warm undertone. This is going to warm up your complexion without looking gray.

BECCA Sunlit Bronzer in Maui Nights

zb_p

I am obsessed with the Becca Sunlit bronzers. I have one for myself in a lighter shade but I love the formula and the warm, glow it gives. You might be looking at this and thinking, wow, that looks really red, however, for deeper skin tones, it does not look too red on the face. It perfectly warms up your complexion and gives an incredible, natural, shimmery sheen.

NYX Bronzer in Dark Tan

nyx

Not only is this bronzer super affordable, it’s also a stunning shade. The undertones in this bronzer are more yellow toned than the others I have mentioned, so if the redish undertones are intimidating, try this one.

Beauty Bakerie Coffee & Cocoa Bronzer Palette

03_cropped

Beauty Bakerie is a black owned makeup brand so they know exactly what is going to work best on deeper skin tones. They are your go-to. I wanted to include a palette because this gives you so many options. You can use these shades the top left shade as a setting powder, the top right shade as a bronzer, bottom left shade as a highlighter or bronzer topper and bottom right shade as a blush or bronzer. I think this palette is so versatile and a great staple in your collection.

Black Radiance Pressed Powder in Rich Mahogany
Screen Shot 2018-06-23 at 4.07.09 PM

Black Radiance is also a black owned brand. This is a labeled as a powder which means it can be used to set your foundation or even as a bronzer. This product is matte with a cooler undertone.

Sephora Summer Wish List

Farmacy Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy™
BRIGHT_ON_LgStraightSmearProd_041618.R3_RGB2000_2000x
Farmacy has become my favorite skincare brand, so when I found out they were releasing a new mask, I knew I had to get it. This Vitamin C mask detoxes your face removing impurities. Plus, it changes colors which is pretty fun.

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer
38723532_027_b
Now that it’s Summer, I want to get into using more cream products. I have heard amazing things about this product and I think it’s a perfect way to start. You get a ton of product in this stick and it’s creamy and easy to blend.

Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara
Captura-de-Tela-2018-04-17-às-15.35.56-620x341
Another product from Milk I have to try is the new Kush mascara. This mascara made quite the buzz on social media because of well, it’s name. The mascara is formulated with cannabis oil which allows for the creamy, nourishing formula.

Becca Be a Light Face Palette
Screen Shot 2018-06-14 at 8.45.48 PM
Becca makes some of my favorite face products. I use their First Light Primer almost everyday along with their bronzer and highlighter. When I saw this new palette release, I was very intrigued. The product looks so beautiful and I like how you can get your entire face done in one palette. This palette contains a brightening powder, blur powder, blush and contour that you can also use as a bronzer.

Too Faced Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation
peach2
I usually never try foundations labeled as “matte” but this one has caught my eye. This foundation didn’t create too much of a buzz when it released with the Too Faced Peaches n’ Cream collection. For some reason, now it’s becoming popular and a lot of beauty influencers are talking and raving about it. I’m interested to see what a “comfort matte” is. I wonder if it will be more hydrating than a regular matte foundation.
