Today’s post is about my monthly favorites, which are July and June, because i didn’t post my June favorites so… let me just write them here with the July’s items. They are all about beauty items. i’ll consider about writing my NON-BEAUTY ITEMS too.
I have some favorites for June and July. I will give some quick review about the items too. So, let’s start with the 1st item:
1) MAYBELLINE COLOR TATTOO – TOUGH AS TAUPE
I really like all Maybelline color tattoo shades and one of my most favorites among them all is this shade “TOUGH AS TAUPE”. For me this shade is really unique, as a taupe color, it contains grey and purple so i can put powder eyeshadow on top with grey or purple color or even pink to make it more unique. I also can use it allover my eyelids and not use anything on top of it if i don’t have much time. Only this color and balck eyeliner and black mascara and i’m good to go. The consistency of this cream for me is thick but it is easy to blend with fingers. I found it’s more easier to blend it with fingers than with brush. stays really long on my eyelid, especially if i use primer again before it. I think i don’t have any complaints about this color tattoo eyeshadow..
2) WARDAH EYESHADOW – SHADE SERIES H
Wardah is a local brand in Indonesia, quite popular especially because they are “HALAL” not for eating, hahaha… but as a HALAL cosmetics. To be honest, i don’t know what halal cosmetics means here, but i assume maybe they are cruelty free, but in Indonesia they use HALAL as a term for cruelty free…just my assumption.
So this eyeshadow called series H, they have series from A to Z i think. hahaha… i don’t exactly know, because i only have 2 of their eyeshadow and all of them called series “H” and series “K”. but my favorite between them is series H. It’s a mini palette consisting 3 colors and each of the palette are mostly can be used for eyelid, outer v and crease i think. So… it’s a perfect daily palette because of the size which is small so it doesn’t take much places on make up kit pouch or your bag.
The series H is consisting of purple varian colors but nothing too dramatic so, i make sure that i can use it everyday. My complaint is the color payoff are still a little bit lack. Of all the three colors, my favorites are the deep purple and the lightest color. Especially the lightest color, for me it’s amazing color. Yes… it’s lack of color payoff but i can use primer before it, and if i want to be more intense i can put the maybelline color tattoo – tough as taupe. Seriously… it will make the color more intense and beautiful for daily makeup use.
3) BEAUTISTYLE EYESHADOW – SHADE A14
Another local brand which i love, called beautistyle. I have couple of their lipsticks but i only have 1 of their eyeshadow and i’m very impressed with it.I hvae it in shade A14. It’s a medium brown color with i think a little bit hint of red undertone. It’s a little bit dark than usual medium brown but not too overly dark. It’s lighter than sable and darker than taupe in Lorac Pro Pallete when i compare them together. A very daily brown color for me, because sometimes i don’t want to bring the Lorac Pro Palette everywhere, so i’ll just bring this and other colors in my pouch.
4) MAC BLUSH ON – PEACHES
I am seriously fall in love with this blush. it’s a perfect daily blush for me. i use it almost every day when i want to have a pop coral orangey color on my cheek. It’s easy to use, easy to blend, nice formula, sheertone finish which shows matte so no shimmery color on my cheek.
5) MAC BLUE BROWN PIGMENT
This pigment is amazing. This is one of my favorite items on July. I use it almost everyday, even though it is a day. Hahahaha.. i know.. it’s more suitable if i use it as night make up, but make up is about what color you like, what color you want to try, right? so… I like it, and i wear it. no regret, just beautiful. It’s a duchrome color of blue and brown, obviously. It has metallic finish, it will be more intense if i put dark color as a base.
6) MAX FACTOR 2000 CALORIE MASCARA
I think i will make a detail review about this mascara in next posts. In my opinion, this is a great daily mascara. i use it almost everyday, before i have this new one, i also had the old version of 2000 calorie mascara. i can say that was one of my holy grail mascara. It gives me enough volume and no clumping at all on my lashes.
7) NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM – ANTWERP & ISTANBUL
Whoa… I love this lip cream lipstick a lot. it gives me matte finish but never crack my lips, it’s smooth and has soft fragrance i think but not too intense. I don’t like lip product with strong fragrance and this one is really soft so i still can handle it. Antwerp is a pink coral color for me and Istanbul is a soft pink color. Both are suits me for daily makeup and night make up. Antwerp is more intense than the Istanbul but obviously two different color. If you like pinky coral, go with antwerp but if like pink as a pink color especially soft pink then you are the istanbul lady.
8) MAKE OVER LIPSTICK – NUDE IN PARADISE
On the packaging it said creamy finish but i think this is cremay with sheen, not too shiny, just enough sheen for me. I have it in shade which is called Nude in Paradise. It is a pink color. On the picture i took, it looks like a coral orange color. but in real i can promise you it’s a pink color. I promise i’ll learn to take better picture for next posts. I think it’s because the flash. Back to the lipstick. This color is perfect for daily and of course you can use it too for balance the look if you wear heavy makeup for the eyes.
9) MAC LIPSTICK – KINDA SEXY
This is one of my favorite lipstick these days on July. It has matte finish so it really covers your lips. For me it doesn’t dry my lips as some people complaint with mac matte lipstick. Yes, sometimes i put lip balm but even though i forgot to put lip balm it’s still okay on my lip. Kinda sexy is a pinky beige nude color. This color will compliment my look if i am wearing heavy eyes make up. Sorry for the picture i took, it doesn’t seem like it’s a pinky beige nude color, it’s more like oral orange color… again, maybe because the flash on camera i used, and excuse my nail color.
10) JORDANA EYESHADOW PENCIL – STAY ON BLACK
I love this formula more than the NYX eyeshadow pencil. because it is so smooth on my eyelid, and the black color is so intense, well… i know it’s black color… black is black nothing too impressive, but like i said the have a very nice formula compare with other eyeshadow pencils from different brand that i have.it’s easy to blend and smooth and for this black it’s a matte finish.
11) MAYBELLINE BABY LIPS BALM
I am so picky when it is about lip balm. I don’t want my lip become crack up because of the lip balm i use, that’s why i rarely change my lip balm brand. i trust my lip balm to THE BODY SHOP lip butter for 98% of my life. Even if i want to change i usually change the varian taste of them not the product. But… when i saw this lip balm somehow i want to try it also because it’s very cheap Less then $2 or Rp. 19.000,- something in Rupiah.So, why not give it a try, i think. And… i’m so amaze of this product, it gives me the softness i usually have with the TBS lip butter. and doesn’t dry my lips in the end of the day. So… i start liking this chapstick balm from maybelline. I think i want to try other varians too of these baby lips. Mureeee cyin.. hahaha, dibanding body shop yang sekarang udah Rp. 70.000,- ini cuma Rp. 20.000, But i’ll still loyal to The Body Shop when it comes for skin care and lip care product. :).
Okay… That baby lips wraps my post. I want to say thank you for people who read my blog wherever you are. Please give comments and follow me on my other social media. See you in my next posts.
Love you… XO.
