August Favorites!

August Monthly favorites featuring nyx dewy setting spray, garnier bb cream, e.l.f eyebrow kit and revlon gel envy nail polish products

It has been a LONG time since I have last posted a monthly favorites post and I apologize. It is due to the fact that I am always indecisive when it comes to a product. I go through phases when I first buy a product where I am head over heels in love with it then I begin to think that this product isn't all its cracked up to be. It usually takes me a month for me to decide how I feel about a product- sometimes a little longer.

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Polish in "Wild Card"- I LOVE this color- it is so bold and it looks fabulous on my nails. I also love how  long it lasts on my nails without chipping. Overall, it is the perfect summer shade and I want to get the most wear out of it before summer is over. Check out my review of it here.
Nyx Dewy Finish Setting Spray- I purchased this in May and it took me this long for me to realize that I like it because I was afraid that it was causing my skin to breakout so I put it aside and I didn't use it for a few weeks. This setting spray has become my favorite because it does not cause me to breakout and I only need to spray it a couple of times on my face to set my makeup. It gives me a lovely dewy finish and it does not leave my face looking like an oil slick which is a huge issue that I have with products that leave a dewy finish because I have oily skin. Also, it does a great job at setting my makeup and making it look great during the entire day- I find that my foundation and concealer don't fade throughout the day. It has become a staple in my everyday makeup bag.
Garnier BB Cream in Medium/Deep- I purchased this at Target in July for about $6 (SCORE). I picked this up because it is too hot in the summer to wear foundation and although I don't want to wear foundation I still want some coverage. The coverage is light to medium and it is definitely buildable. The consistency is sort of thick- it is not runny and I prefer to apply it with my fingers. This BB cream looks so natural on and I don't have issues with it making my skin more oily.
e.l.f Studio Eyebrow Kit in Medium- I randomly purchased this at Target when I bought the Garnier BB cream. I blame it on the whole 'going to target for one thing and leaving with a ton of other stuff' that everyone tends to suffer from. I don't regret buying this at all. To be honest, my brows are not sparse and I don't need to fill them in but I like them looking a little darker. I use the gel side to fill them in slightly and then I use the powder to set them in place. My brows stay in place and they do not budge! I can safely say that my eyebrow game is ON POINT!
