July 2014 Favorites

Well, July went by quickly! I spent two weeks of the month sick with a cold and sinus problems. Summer colds...can we just talk about how they seem so much worse than winter ones? Seriously. It's like they last longer and are just more vicious to deal with. I'm just happy it happened after my birthday weekend! Since I was sick for half of the month, my beauty regimen was nearly non-existent. To the girls who can look cute while sick, I would like to give you major side-eyes right now!

Barry M Korres MAC Redken
This month saw me rediscovering some old favorites with MAC's Painterly Paint Pot and All that Glitters eyeshadow. I really need to do some updated swatches of the MAC eyeshadows that I own. I'll add that to my list! Sometimes nothing makes me cringe more than going back into my archives!

Barry M's Mint Green is perfect for spring and summer. Barry M Nail Paints very rarely let me down. Some have problems with them chipping, but I use a base coat and top coat and experience minimal chipping after a few days. I always run back to Korres' Jasmine Lip Butter, whether it be in the tube or pot. Finally, there's Redken's smoothing lotion. If I'm blow-drying my hair, I reach for this. It doesn't weigh down my fine hair and it keeps my wavy hair from frizzing out on the humid days.

UGHHHH summer colds are the worst!! I got stuck with one earlier this month too, and I'm still trying to shake the last of the cough. Totally inconvenient.

I've actually been eyeing that exact eye shadow. It looks like a perfect neutral.

Where do you get Barry M from? I used to buy their nail paints all the time when I was a student in the UK, but I've never seen them in the US. But you're in Canada so maybe there's a magical Barry M pipeline there. Anyway, I hope you feel better now!

Last summer, I had the worst July ever with sinus infections/congestion/cough, just felt all around yuck. It just wouldn't clear up. Thankfully this summer has been manageable, though I still got the occasional major allergy attack. Happy you're feeling better!
