Monthly Favourites - July 2019

It has been bothering me lately that I am not posting as much as I would like to. Working an office job, on a computer for 5 days a week, 8 hours a day, is tiring! I would love to blog more but at the end of the day, I just want to get away from the computer and enjoy my evenings. But I miss blogging! I miss trying out products and sharing my thoughts. Don't get me wrong, I'm still trying so many things, but I'm not sharing it, and I feel like I am missing out. Going forward, I'm going to try and blog more. Even if its small posts, just like this one. Monthly favourites! I feel this is a good way to start blogging more, and sharing more of my thoughts. So for July 2019, I'm sharing my favourite products!

Let's start with our "base" products and move from there!

Pixi - Glow Tonic
This toner exfoliates, hydrates, and brightens skin. I find that it helps "exfoliate" my skin, but it isn't harsh or drying on my skin at all. It is so gentle, and my skin never feels like it is burning when I use it. Sometimes acids can do that, but this is definitely not like those! I'm really enjoying it in my skincare lineup! I can see why it is such a cult classic!

Sephora Collection - Nourishing Moisturizer (Hydrate and Repair)
This is a daily cream that moisturizes, nourishes, repairs, and softens skin while preventing premature aging. There are 3 oils used in the moisturizer, and it's formulated with  91% natural plant ingredients.
-Avocado Oil: Nourishes the skin.
-Marula Oil: Repairs the skin.
-Rose Hip Seed Oil: Softens the skin.
This moisturizer is nice and thick, and you can definitely tell there are multiple oils in the formula. It doesn't feel too oily on the skin, and sinks in pretty quickly. I do prefer to use this at night, just because I feel it might be too heavy in the summer during the day, but it feels wonderful, and the price is right! $22 Canadian for 50mL!

Revlon Colorstay Foundation - Normal/Dry in 130 Porcelain*
When I first received this I wasn't sure how my dry skin was going to react with it, just because I've heard its a little more on the matte side. But let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised! This has become my favourite foundation! The shade is perfect, it doesn't oxidize, and a little goes such a long way. It evens out my skin tone, it doesn't make my skin look dry like I feared, and it gives my skin a nice natural look. I'm really loving it, and I haven't stopped reaching for it for months! I don't look like a grease ball at the end of the day either. That's a win!

Nars - Oil Infused Lip Tint in Orgasm
I'm in love with this oil infused lip tint. It's a cross between a gel and an oil, and its just the perfect tint. See my post here. I loved it so much, I bought a second as a back up and to keep in my purse for when I am out or when I'm at work. Love it!

Too Faced - Damn Girl! Mascara
I wasn't sure how much I was going to love this, just because I thought it was going to be similar to the better than sex mascara. BTS is good, but it's just not my favourite. This wand is somewhat similar, but my lashes are LOVING it! They look so full and thick, and it doesn't flake or smudge! Another great surprise!
