July 2012 Favorites Part One: Face, Fragrance & Nail Polish
Favorite Face Products
Garnier Miracle Skin Perfecter B.B. Cream - Light/Medium
I have been using this for about a month and a half. I have been skipping my morning moisturizer and just using this. It is lightweight, gives light-medium coverage, evens out my skin tone, applies evenly and smoothly, wears well and has SPF 15. The only thing I don't like is that the finish is a bit dewy for me, so I just top it off with a powder.
Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Correcting Powder - Natural Beige
This is the powder that I have been using over the Garnier B.B. Cream. As you can see, this powder has gotten a lot of love. The green, pink and yellow tones are color correcting and mixed in with the natural beige powder. It comes with a little brush that you can see in the photos above, but I have never used it. I like to use a big fluffy brush with this powder. If you apply too much it can look powdery, so I use a light hand. It also works nicely for touch-ups throughout the day. I have a lot of redness and this powder really helps to even my skin tone.
Favorite Nail Polish
China Glaze Flirty Tankini from the 2012 Summer Neons Collection. Love! So bright & Summery with a bit of shimmer.
Victoria's Secret Pink Fruity & Bright Body Mist
So, I have had this for a while, but I just broke it free from my beauty closet and rekindled my love for it! I was very exited to share with you how similar it is to Philosophy's Falling in Love fragrance... only to find out that it is discontinued! grrr! It has the same blackberry and vanilla notes that Falling in Love has and I just love it! It was a more affordable dupe for Falling in love, but now it looks like its is going for $20-$25 on ebay. Oh, well...
