This month has been incredibly fast paced and interesting. I got back from New Zealand at the end of June, so this was my first month back in America. I also decided to start a YouTube channel which has been incredibly exciting, scary, fun, and (I’ll admit) frustrating. It has been so refreshing to feel like I’m actually taking a step to where I want to be in life while sharing with everyone the topics I feel most passionate and excited by! Click HERE if you would like to check it out! I got back to writing regularly on my blog again too which has been so nice, and I’m so glad you guys are taking the time to read what I’m putting out! Thank you so much!!
Anyway….back to my favorites of the month!
First up are some hair products that have really made a difference in the health of my hair. I really didn’t realize how much so until I lost them at the end of my New Zealand trip and had to deal with my hair without them for a week or so. They are the Garnier Fructis Leave in Conditioner and the Tresemme Heat Protecting Spray.
I use the heat protecting spray every time I straighten my hair, and it makes such a difference in how frizzy and dry my hair is. If I don’t use it once, I feel like I end up spending the next few weeks trying out different products and working with my hair to try and get it back to the way it was. The Ganier leave in conditioner I use in my hair right before I dry it. This is one of the products I use way more often when I’m trying to get my hair back to normal. I can definitely tell a difference in how dry and frizzy my hair is after I dry it. It’s also much smoother and shinier.
Next up we have makeup! First is the Elizabeth Mott Highlighter. I first tried this out when I got it in my IPSY bag a month or so ago. I liked it so much that I ended up buying it. For me, this is the perfect highlighter for the summer months because it’s very subtle and pretty on the skin. I really don’t like bright, sparkly highlighters when it’s really hot because I feel like it emphasizes the sweat already making my face look shiny.
Then we have the Milani Setting Spray. I got this after I heard (I believe) Kathleen Lights talked about how much she liked this. Like I said, because it’s been so hot lately, I really needed a good setting spray to keep my makeup on my face instead of melting off. This definitely got the job done. It made my makeup last all day even in the heat, and my makeup looked like I just put it on all day.
Last is the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. I’m not going to say too much about this because it seems like everyone is talking about it lately. I’ll just say that it is absolutely hands down the best mascara I have tried lately. I think that it even beats the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara which has been my all time favorite mascara. Unlike the Too Faced one, it doesn’t have fall out under my eyes if I wear it for a long time, and my lashed stay full, long, and curled throughout the day.
That’s all for this month! If you would like to see more, check out my June favorites video HERE! I would love for you to let me know what you’ve been loving this month in the comments!!
