July Favorites!

hey ya'll 
July is over and that mean July favorites! YAY! This month has been a great one; school let out, I did some serious damage to my bank account and along the way found some time to relax.
so first off I have 
  1. A Wet and Wild  Highlight and contour blush,"silk Finish" line in the color c171. This is a beautiful color that is great mixed together for a peachy pink color or use the stripes separately for a specific color. And the best part is that it was at the 99 cents store!
  2. NYX round lip stick in "Tea Rose" a really pretty mauve pink.
  3. Palladio herbal eyeshadow primer, soon becoming one of my favorite eye primers
  4. Duo Dark eyelash adhesive, for some reason iv been wearing falsies a lot this month and I'm always grabing this one.
  5. L'Oreal Voluminous waterproof mascara
  6. Tarte Maracuja ceaseless concealer, favorite under eye concealer. 
hope you guys had a great July and did any of you guys have any monthly favorites ? and see ya next month

I got me some MAC today ^_^

 school finaly let out and I celebrated with a little bit of shopping ^_^ 

 I have been wanting this concealer for ever, and I think I waited a little too long because they increased the price for this, it used to be 15.50 and now its 16.50 :(

 I love my Powder foundations but sometimes I can look very powdered so I got this to help with that

Review: Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer

Heeelo my lovlies! Im here with a review on Stila's Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. I got this at my local Nordstrom Rack for $12 dollars. This is normally retailed at $32 so when I saw it I was excited. The shade I have is 01 a peach toned moisturizer.
 I don't know why but lately I have been looking into products that offer glowy skin. I have oily-combo skin so it is strange for me to purchase  products that essentially, make me shiny.  But here I am with a review on a product that does just that. So right off the bat this tinted moisturizer has zero coverage, that was really disappointing but I now use it for a different purpose.
Now, I don't use it for coverage but for days when my skin look a little dull and drab, I apply some of this to bring back some 'glow'. The glow in the is product is not shimmery, it is just a sheen. This will definitely be part of my winter/fall  routine. but for the summer it is a little too much. The texture of the product is like a thick watery gel like cream. It has a slight powdery scent kind of like lightly floral baby power. For a moisturizer it feels pretty good. Its fairly light weight and it absorbs into the skin.

Fashion: A Floral Affair

It is now summer time and a big trend this season is floral. Adding floral to any wardrobe can easily add a girly tough to any outfit. I'm a little late in the floral trend but now I love it.

Review: Clinique redness Solutions

Yo! what is up my makeup loving Junkies!, how is everyone doing?
This is a review on Clinique Redness solutions base makeup (foundation)

and I have it in the color 03 Calming Ivory.  (MAC reference NC30).  I purchases this at the Clinique counter for $25 bucks. The bottle holds 1 fl.oz or 30 ml. I love this foundation. It's marketing pitch is that it is a foundation that will neutralize the redness on the face and this works. I have redness around my nose and my cheeks, and this covers it up beautifully. What really sold me was that it neutralized the red acne scars on the back of my cheeks  and made it less noticeable. This is a medium coverage foundation that is build-able. I generally don't need that much coverage so I sheer it out with some moisturizer to get a tinted moisturizer effect.
This is allergy tested and fragrance free so it is suitable for sensitive skin. This has  SPF 15, so it has some sun protection but 15 isn't enough, I suggested a higher one underneath your base makeup, even if it has it built in. For me this is a great winter, fall foundation because it matches me better. In the summer it is a little too light for me so I don't use it  that much.  The texture of this product is liquidy but not runny. It drys to a satin finish. It is very light weight on the skin and half the time I forget I'm wearing anything.
Overall I think this is a great foundation for people who need or wants to cover up redness on their face. Great purchase!
