I know!! I know!! It’s a little late to be doing a favorites post for July, but give me a break this is my first favorites post and I wanted to really make sure I was in love with the products I will be mentioning before I wrote this post. But better late than never!!
Starting with my makeup favorites from July: I received a Wantable box in May and this product was one of the items I found in my box, the Pla Beauty Super Wear Gel Liner in Noir 1. This eye liner is just a simple black pencil but it goes on so smoothly and boldly and I absolutely love how it looks on my eyes. While I have yet to figure out how to or even if you’re able to sharpen the dang thing I still love it.
Another makeup favorite of mine would have to be my e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit in Medium. I love how easy this kit is to use and it is so natural looking. I never really got the hang of using a brow pencil, it always turned out way to dark and unnatural looking… But with this I just use the fluffy brush the kit came with for the powder and apply that to the inner part of my brow then use a liner brush to apply the wax to the rest of my brow to shape and fill. This eyebrow kit was only three dollars from Target and I will for sure be purchasing this again!
Now for my beauty and hair favorites: for my hair this is a long time favorite of mine I’ve been using it ever since I started using products in my hair, and yes, I have tried other brands and types of products to get the desired look but I always come back to this certain product. The Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. I love this serum because it doesn’t make my hair feel or look greasy if used correctly, and believe me it took me a while to figure out how to use it in a way that won’t make my hair look gross. The way I use it is I use one pump while my hair is wet and just work it through the ends and the top, but not the roots, then I style my hair how I normally would and if it still looks a little frizzy after blow drying and heat styling then I apply another half a pump to the top to smooth down the frizz. I don’t recall the cost of the serum but it is available in Target stores!
Next is my beauty favorite for July. I actually got this about a week before July was over but after one use I was hooked! I have been on the hunt for a good moisturizer for my face that has SPF in it and I couldn’t find one that didn’t smell like sunscreen or make my face greasy and slimy. Until one day I found the Botanics Mattifying Day Cream Sunsceen (SPF 15) in my mom’s bathroom and used some. It was AMAZING so I bought myself a jar the next day at Target! If I remember correctly it was about $14 for a 50ml jar, but trust me this stuff goes a long way. It smells incredible and it feels so soft and not like sunscreen at all!! This product will be a favorite for a long while I can tell already!
One last favorite to share, my fashion favorite! This summer I got a job at a shoe store called Aldo, since I have an amazing employee discount I have been using it A LOT to buy shoes and accessories for schoolwhich has saved me so much money!! Recently my favorite and only little watch broke so I had been going without one and I was not a fan. So I bought one from Aldo! I am obsessed! The face of the watch is gold and big but not so big that it’s heavy or uncomfortable. And the best part is it came with 5 different bands so it matches every single outfit and it looks like I am wearing a different watch everyday, even though it’s the same watch!! I have had it for about a month and a half now and I have had no issues, the bands are super cute and great quality! Highly recommend 10/10!!! you can find sets similar to the one I bought here. unfortunately the set I bought isn’t sold anymore online although we still have it in stores, but the sets they are selling are still SUPER CUTE and I wish I could buy them all!!
