I actually had a great month. I spent the 4th of July holiday with one of my best friends, her little girls (also besties of mine!), and her family in a beautiful part of Massachusetts. Another bestie had her baby boy in July and I am looking forward to meeting him as soon as I can. I also met a new and wonderful guy who I am looking forward to spending more time with, including a mini vaca for my birthday this month! I also ran my first 5K with my friend, Jen, about a week ago. Upwards and onwards for August!
Whew! In all that busyness, I didn't pay much attention to my nails or my social media. I'm sorry! But I do have some favorites (and one dislike) for you this month, so let's jump in!
First up, the manicures:
Polish brands used:
- Literary Lacquers - Flopsy, Soul Within Me Burning
- Mrs. P's Nail Potions - Searching For Mr. Right
- Salon Perfect - Honey Dew, Honey Don't
Next, the beauty products!
Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer is a gift sent from the makeup Gods. This has a slightly tinted base to it, too. NEED a full size for sure.
The Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick was sent to me for free to review from Influenster. I love that it is in stick formation. I love primers all summer long so this has been getting a good workout.
The inside of the Estee Edit stick has a nude color, too. Much preferred over clear gel primers!
The NYX Ombre Blush in Code Breaker has become a quick favorite. Love!
Very pigmented! Go easy!
Benefit Roller Lash is on my birthday wishlist. So much yes.
Last but not least, the dislike. Benefit Bene-Tint is a cult product that I've been hearing about you for years, so when it arrived in a sub box, I was really excited. Unfortunately, I also purchased the Demi Lovato version of the same product...and I like it way more for a fraction of the price! Love when that happens!
What did you think of this month's likes and dislikes? Have you tried any of these products?
