July Favorites

monthlyfaves

So I’ve decided to make a new monthly column here on my blog where I’ll be sharing all the products that I’ve been loving every month. So here’s my absolute July Favorites:

fav1

1. So my first favorite this month is the Stay Matte Pressed Powder by Rimmel in the color: Silky Beige 05. I use this powder to set my foundation and concealer. It’s a great everyday powder since it’s very inexpensive and really keeps my face matte. I’ve been using this on a daily basis for my everyday make-up look instead of using a more expensive one that I like to use when I’m going out or doing something more special.

2. So the foundation I’ve been loving this month is the L’oreal True Match. This is by far my favorite drugstore foundation – it’s very light weighted, so it won’t feel like you put on another layer of skin and it covers very well. I would definitely recommend this foundation to everyone who’s looking for a great inexpensive product that works!

fav2

Next product that I’ve been loving is the Radiant Concealer by NARS. When I first tried it – I went like: “WOW“. This concealer is very pigmented and looks amazing on the skin. I’ve been trying a lot out there and this has become my holy grail concealer – especially when it comes to high-end products. LOVE!

fav3

When it comes to nail polishes this month – I’ve been loving the Wonder Nail by Isadora, especially the color 192. These dries instantly and they also last pretty well. The only thing is that you’ll have to put on to layers to make your nails look amazing. I’ve only been using these the whole month – and the color selection is great!

fav4

My favorite parfume of this month is the newest from Karl Lagerfeld. This smells amazing! And not to mention the bottle.. So freakin’ adorable! If you’re searching for a new fragrance – go smell this cutie!

fav5

1. My favorite lipsticks of all times are the ones by Yves Saint Laurent, and this months fave is the YSL Rouge Volupte in number 33. I bought this color recently on my way to Spain and I’ve been loving the color every since.

2. Another favorite of this month is the L’oréal Nude Magique CC cream and it’s a anti-redness cream. I use this when I want a light cover and it works wonder on my skin. This is especially good now when it’s summer and you’re going tanning or so, and don’t want a full cover with the use of foundation. This cream also has SPF in it which makes this great!

fav6

So the next product that I’ve been loving are these ones by Maybelline – the famous Baby Lips. I got a few different colors and I’ve been using these every single day. When I’m in the sun my lips tend to dry out and crack very easily – so I’ve been wearing this under my lipstick and by itself! Great, great. great product!

fav7

Last, but not least – my favorite brushes of the month: first one up is a Kabukhi Brush by Shelas. This is great while traveling and I’ve been using this to apply my bronzer. This brush is so incredible soft – loves it!

Next brush is the Expert Face Brush by Real Techniques. This one I use to apply my foundation and I don’t even know where to start – it’s by far the best brush I’ve ever tried and I just love it so much! I need to buy more of these!

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Happy friday guys ♥ Hope you’re all doing wonderful! I’m back home after spending two amazing weeks in Spain. I totally wish we’d stayed for at least one more week (even if the weather here is great as well) but there’s something about being away from home, and not to mention the palm trees, clear blue ocean and beaches which can’t be found anywhere near here.

As the shopaholic that I am I did of course do a lot of shopping, especially when it comes to make-up and beauty products. Since we don’t have Sephora or any other of the international make-up stores here in Norway I guess you can say that I went a little nuts, so there will be a haul coming up this weekend. Stay tuned for that!

Now I’m about to get ready for my day, but first - here’s some snapshots from my trip;

These Flats Are Made For Walking

balleThese flats by Michael Kors are just amazing to walk in. I already have one pair in black which has to be my favorite flats of all time. The sole used in these ones doesn’t make your feet hurt after a little walking around in comparison to a lot of others flats I own. I’m now craving a pair in white! So if you’re going on vacation to a city where you’re going to do a lot of walking – I definitely recommend looking up a pair of these beauties
