Beauty Favorites: July

Hello guys! Just wanted to share with you my monthly favorites. I know it's a little too late for me but like I always say...better late than never :) let's get started! 

For this month, I only have 5 beauty products to share with you. I think one item I already have mentioned in my previous favorites and it is making a comeback hahaha :) 

1. Hourglass Ambient Blush in Incandecent Electra - it's only now that I joined the Hourglass bandwagon...I know...maybe a year too late but I fell in love instantly with this. I have been hearing mix reviews about HG products. Some work, some does not but for me personally, I like the blush. I also own the limited edition blush set but I find that it is not as pigmented as individual blushes. This is not a "holy moly you look like a clown" type of blush. I admit, I am one of those who like super pigmented products but this one is different. I know understand why so many people love Hourglass. It's subtle but it's good. 

2. Too Faced Bonjour de Soleil Palette - this is the product that I fell in love again. I am so in love with the product that I already ditched using the ABH contour palette and the Balm Bahama Mama. I also love the fact that the powders smell like chocolate. This has been my go-to for bronzing and contouring :) 

3. Too Faced Semi-Sweet Palette - can you see that I am an avid fan of Too Faced? Their products are so good that it already took the place of my well loved Urban Decay products. I love the palette. It smells like chocolate. It is super pigmented and it doesn't crease on me even without using any primer. I can also do a lot of combinations with this palette. I must say that this is a must-have for any makeup junkies. 

4. MAC lip liner in Soar - I had to buy this one since you all know that I have been obsessing on the nude lip. This is such a good liner that you can use it as a lipstick. I use it in combination with MAC Myth and it gives the Kylie Jenner lip look. 

5. MAC Fix+ in Cucumber - Being a MAC collector, I had to buy this one. I love my original Fix+ that's why I opted to buy this one for myself :) it smells really good and this is Limited Edition.

Want to get the Kylie Jenner lip Shade?

Ever since Kylie Jenner released this photo of her on Instagram, I was mesmerized on how good her lips were. 

Her lips were full and the shade of her lipstick was on point. I tried figuring out what the lip combination was. At first I thought it was only one lip shade. I tried using Velvet Teddy from MAC but that wasn't it. Until her makeup artist spilled the bean and they were saying that it was SOAR. 

I finally got the chance to get SOAR which is always out of stock in the U.S. Combined with Myth, it becomes the perfect shade for the infamous Kylie Jenner lips. 

Here's a picture of my lips wearing those two together :
