Hello, hope you guys are having an awesome Monday so far. Today's blog post is going to be all about my favorite beauty products for the month of July. I have been shopping my own makeup collection for the past month and have mostly been reaching for older favorites of mine. I have been loving these items for a while now, so you might have seen a few of them in some of my previous monthly favorites posts as well as reviews. But if you haven't, you're in for a real treat! :-) 
 ♥ NYX Cosmetics Honey Dew Me Primer, (HERE). 

 ♥ NYX Cosmetics Honey Dew Me Up Primer, (HERE). 

I have been reaching for the Honey Dew Me Up primer from NYX Cosmetics quite a lot in July. It's such a nice primer, which feels quite cold and very refreshing on the skin once you put it on. It's got tiny gold sparkles/reflects in it, which makes the skin look more radiant and glowy. Some of the sparkles can be quite big and noticeable on the skin, but that's not something that I have a problem with. The sparkles blend into the skin once I have applied my foundation, so I can't really tell that they are there.

Honey Dew Me Up has a spatula applicator, which I think is super cool. It's quite unique compared to my other primers in my makeup collection. They either come with a pump or in a squeeze tube, so I like that this one is a bit different! :-) 
 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15, (HERE). 

 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15, (HERE). 

Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15 from MAC Cosmetics is another little gem that I have been loving and using a lot in July. I think it's a wonderful little concealer, which covers up dark spots and under eye circles very well. It feels a little tacky when you first apply it, but it's fine once it's been set with a powder. I find it to be quite heavy looking underneath the eye area, so I always start by applying just a little, then I go back and add more if I feel like I need the extra coverage. It can quickly start to look heavy and a bit cakey if you apply too much at once. A little goes a very long way with this concealer, so you definitely don't need to use it with a heavy hand! :-)
 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle, (HERE). 

 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle, (HERE).

During the entire month of July, I have been obsessed with Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle from MAC Cosmetics. Soft and Gentle is my all-time favorite highlighter, it's been that way for many years now. The pigmentation is wonderful and it gives off the most beautiful, wet looking glow. A little goes a long way with it, so be a little careful when you are applying it or else you will be looking like a pretty disco ball when you are all done! :-)

If you are thinking about picking up something from MAC Cosmetics but you aren't sure what's worth getting, I highly recommend that you check out Soft and Gentle. If you love highlighters that give you that wet looking glow, I don't think that you are going to regret adding it to you're collection! :-)
 ♥ ArtDeco Hydra Lip Booster in #42, (HERE). 

 ♥ ArtDeco Hydra Lip Booster in #42, (HERE). 

The ArtDeco Hydra Lip Booster in #42 has been my most reached for lip product in July. It's a beautiful berry toned lip gloss, which feels very hydrating and comfortable on the lips. It doesn't have that really sticky feeling like some lip glosses have, which I'm thrilled about. I really can't stand that sticky feeling on the lips, so I'm glad that this one is not like that. There are a few more shades in the Hydra Lip Booster range that I have been looking at for a while now. I'm thinking about adding them to my collection since I have been enjoying this particular shade so much. Have you tried out these glosses by ArtDeco? What are your thoughts on them? :-) 
♥ Piz Buin Ultra Light Dry Touch Face Fluid in SPF 15, (HERE). 

Piz Buin is hands down my favorite brand when it comes to protecting the skin against the sun. This is their Ultra Light Dry Touch Face Fluid, which is a sunscreen made to be used on the face. It has a very lightweight feeling on the skin, so you can't feel it once it's on the face. It dries and absorbs instantly, leaving behind the most amazing coconutty scent that lingers on the skin throughout the day. It doesn't have a white cast either, which is awesome. I have tried so many sunscreens and they all have that white cast that makes you look like a ghost walking around town, not cute! :-) 

What products have you been loving in July? Have you tried out any of my favorites? :-) 
Love, Christine ♥

  1. Loved reading your favourites Christine. I am in love with Mac's soft and gentle, I bought it three weeks ago and have fell in love with it through July. You've definitely added a few things to my wishlist - especially that NYX primer; my skin has been so bad recently and this would completely liven it up. Thank you so much for sharing!! I've also really been loving the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, it has saved me from looking like a zombie when I wake up!!

    Love Charlotte xxx
