July 2013 Monthly Favorites {Better Late Than Never}!

July Favorites

Another great month for favorites! Most of these made the list because they came along with me to New Jersey and they were FANTASTIC! Here's the nitty gritty...

The L'Oreal Infallible Super Slim Liner {purchased by me} is fantastic! Super easy to work with {and I tested it by trying to apply winged  liner while going 65 down a Virginia highway-on the passenger side of course!} and incredible staying power-with or without a base to stick to. Though not pictured, I also brought along a few Smashbox Cosmetics goodies: the Heat Wave Palette {sent for review}, 'Photo Finish' Foundation Primer SPF 20 with Dermaxyl Complex {purchased by me}, and the new Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liners in Bare and Raven {sent for review} that I mentioned in my Smashbox Latest Faves post. Also in my cross country makeup bag: Skindinavia Makeup Spray {it's a new HG for me; sent for review}-a spritz on clean skin and another once my makeup was applied made my makeup bullet proof {which was important because I had to look my picture perfect best while staying with my in-laws}, MAC's limited edition RiRiWoo lipstick {which has almost single handedly converted me to a red lipstick lover; my MIL even complimented me on it; purchased by me}, Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Lip Cooler {I can not go to sleep or complete my morning skin care routine without slathering my lips in its yumminess; purchased by me}, and Rimmel London's Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch {it gives such a natural, pretty, instant flush to my complexion; sent for review}.

To make sure I smelled great, I brought bath gel and body mist in Bath and Body Works' Coconut Water Chill  {sent for review} scent and it was such a refreshing treat everyday when I showered. I brought several travel size fragrances with me, but I reached for Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy and Viva La Juicy La Fleur {purchased by me} the most. The Atopalm Moisturizing Cleansing Wipes {sent for review} were perfect for the nights when I was just too exhausted to go through my entire PM skincare routine-they removed all traces of makeup, sweat, etc. without drying out my skin. The Mama Mio O-Mega Wonder-Full Balm {sent for review} is just the business- a thick, all natural balm that soothes irritation, nourishes the skin, and gives intense hydration. Packed with natural Omega-rich oils in a beeswax base, it's a solid oil that melts in contact with your skin, and it feels absolutely decadent when you rub it into your skin.

The one item featured that I didn't take with me to New Jersey are the Exfoliating Gloves-but I really, really missed them while we were gone! EVERY time I shower, regardless of the shower gel I use, I always use these gloves. I got mine from Target and using them {and applying some kind of oil to my skin as soon as I get out of the shower}has made a huge difference in the quality of my skin. Life changing I tell ya!

So there it is, all the stuff I've been loving this month! What have you been reaching for time and time again? Anything you recommend me looking in to? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Until next time...
