My July 2011 Beauty Faves

So as we all know..It is HOTT!!!! I can't stress how uncomfortable it is...lol! ok enough complaining. I kept this month super simple. No foundation, not even tinted moisturizer. I guess that is good because it gives my skin time to breathe. But when I did "put on a face" These are the things I reached for!

NYX lipgloss in #104 SweetHeart 
This is a pretty beige/peach color. It has a frosty finish and like all NYX glosses it is not sticky. It can really finish a look wether dramatic or simple. I paired it with the following lip liners...
top NYX #860 PeekABoo Neutral
Mid NYX #839 Dolly Pink
Bottom AVON glimmerstick in Perfect Plum
Coastal scents 28 Natural Palette
This is a great palette for beginners and pros alike. I keep this in the front because I have been grabbing this over all others. For more of my thoughts and a look /video I did click here

L'Oreal Double Extend Mascara
I had individual lashes on for about 2 weeks and as they came out so did some of my lashes and my lid was sore. I began using this and noticed a slight but important difference; my lashes no longer shed or broke off. The mascara was not clumpy and my lashes were fuller and longer!

Swatch Time: Jesse's Girl

While visiting my local Rite Aid, I see one of my favorite brands as put out some new products. Jesse's Girl . I have not tried any of their Baked Eyeshadows Singles, but this palette caught and held my attention! 9 baked eyeshadows are included, and to my knowledge (and searching their site) It is my understanding that some of these are new colors! 

As you know I love their eyedusts and have been eager to try their single eyeshadows. Now I have nine to play with!

Have you tried any of these colors? Let me know!

Coastal scents

For a great way to get many eyeshadow colors for little money, I love Coastal Scents. Their palettes are pigmented and last a long time. You can get 88 colors in one palette for around $20 can't beat that.

I have finally gotten all of my makeup in a 10 drawer organizer, which allows me to get to all my makeup. Using a file holder I now have my CS palettes within reach. I have been drawn back in the use of these products and love the outcome. 

The color combos you can do with these palettes are endless!

My two favorites are the                        
                                                               28 Neutral Palette
and the 88 Matte Palette.

Two looks I have been rocking for the past week using these palettes..
