July Favorites;

Hey beauties!
I normally don`t do "favorites" posts, but this month I had a few items I was using regularly & decided to share.
I have some makeup, nail polish, & hair products to share with you.

Makeup Favorites;
Avon`s Ideal Flawless Loose Powder in Fawn. I picked up this product just to test it out. I thought it was going to be the wrong color, but it`s actually matches quite well. This powder feels very light & does not cake on. It`s very easy to control the coverage level you need.

ELF`s Cream Liner in Black. I`ve had this for a while, but never opened or used it. Since I ran out of my liquid liners, I figured I would give this a shot. It goes on very smooth & is easy to work with. I definitely have enjoyed using this product this month for a quick wing liner.

MAC`s Touch lipstick. You beauties know I love MAC`s Lustre finish. This lipstick is the perfect brown nude. I`ve used it so much already this month & will definitely be repurchasing.

L`Oreal Colour Riche in Violet Chiffon. The price tag is not too pretty, but the color is. This shade is the most perfect drugstore pink-ish, purple I have found. I love that it gives you decent pigmentation & hydrates your lips. It reminds me a little of MAC`s Lustre finishes.

Nail Polishes;
Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer in Sweet Clementine. This is a gorgeous, bright, orange nail color. Since the beginning of Summer, I have really been into the bright shades. So when I saw this color, I knew it had to be added to my collection.

Avon`s Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel in Coral Reef. I saw this shade in a limited edition ad & thought it was a pretty color. I tend to stay away from pinks because they look odd on me. Once I tried this shade on my nails, I was singing a different tune. Absolutely a gorgeous shade.

Hair Products;
Mixed Silk By Silk Elements Leave-In Conditioning Creme. I ran out of my beloved Beautiful Textures this month & decided to use this product that I had left over. I used this quite a bit this month when my hair was curly. This leave-in provides great moisture to my hair & leaves my hair feeling light & soft to the touch. It does sort of smell like dish detergent which would be the only down side to this product.

365 Everyday Value Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil. I bought this from Whole Foods & just can`t get enough! I wore my hair straight about two weeks & I cannot use anything water based on my hair. If I do, poof, reversion. So, I turn to oils. Coconut oil is amazing for my hair, gives me great shine!

Palmer`s Olive Oil Gro Therapy. As some of you know, I tend to have dryness around my edges. I used this product around my edges to help with flakiness. It worked great & was only $1 at Big Lots! I did see a difference when I used this product. Also, it gave a nice shine to my hair as well.

I hope you guys enjoyed my July Favorites.
What poduct(s) did you guys enjoy this July?

Thanks so much for reading!


  1. You have some really good favorites, I gotta try this coconut oil for my hair.

  2. Thanks for sharing your goodies! You have some great products here! I really love the coconut oil for my hair, too. I use it to seal, for my pre-poo, and for my hot oil mixes. My hair loves coconut oil!

    I also love that e.l.f. cream liner too. I was surprised at how smooth and easy it was to apply.

    I so was going to try that Avon powder in Fawn but I was afraid the color wouldn't match. I might have to add it to my next order.

    1. Thanks for the comment! You should definitely try out the Avon powder!

  3. Nice favorites, Courtney! I also love E.L.F.'s cream eyeliner. It is super easy to apply, has nice pigmentation, and the smooth texture is a bonus :)

  4. I wear that violet chiffon lipstick almost everyday. I luv it.

    1. It`s such a great color! Thanks for commenting!
