July Beauty Review

maybelline fit me nyx eyebrow gel concealer tarte mascara colourpop matte lip

End of the month = new monthly beauty review. I'm changing the style of my monthly beauty favorites as I'd like to not only talk about products that I have been using this month that I like but also briefly review some products that I may not like for whatever reason. I have been trying a lot of new products this month and there are a few products that I have been loving and some that I'm not  too crazy about.

NYX Eyebrow Gel: I don't have a real eyebrow routine because I do not have to fill in my brows too much- I just need to fill them in slightly. I have been using e.l.f eyebrow kit which I love but I'm running out of it and I heard that this gel is a dupe of the Anastasia eyebrow pomade. I LOVE this gel as you only need the tiniest bit to fill both brows in and its basically waterproof. This lasts all day on my brows. This is definitely going to last me a long time.

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara: This is a deluxe sample that came in a Tarte box that I bought from Ulta. I heard great things about this mascara and it didn't disappoint me. It gives my lashes amazing length and volume and I only need one coat for each lash. The size of the brush is great for my lower lashes as well.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless: When I tried this foundation during the winter I wasn't a huge fan of it because my skin was dry then and this foundation is ideal for normal to oily skin ladies. I have been loving this foundation as it doesn't make my face look like an oil slick, good coverage and its long wearing. This foundation is so much better than the original Fit Me foundation.

NYX HD Concealer: This is my favorite drugstore concealer- I have about 3 shades of this concealer and I will always repurchase. It covers my dark undereye circles very well and it lasts throughout the day. It's also very affordable- retail approximately $5. However, I do need to set it with powder as it will crease if I don't. 

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipsticks: I'm on of those people who spent a long time refreshing Colourpop's website so I could get my hands on a couple of these lipsticks. I basically fell into the hype on youtube and I regret buying them. This range has a large selection of colors which I like but the formula is very drying (You can check out my first impression here). I find that using Mac's Prep + Prime lip helps slightly.

What are your favorite products at the moment?
