Hello and welcome to my monthly favorites of July and August. I can’t believe that we are just a few months away to celebrate New Year. As often happens, August was a hectic month for me: most of my favorite people in the world are August born, keeping track of Instagram giveaway and (the worst) my handy-helper (maid) is on leave. Also, I had a chance to indulge in some awesome beauty products to make myself ready for the festive season ahead. Now, without any further delay let’s jump into what made it into my favorite beauty products for the month of July & August.
Huda Beauty Summer Solstice Highlighter Palette
I’ve become addicted to Huda’s product lately. When I came to know that Huda is launching the limited-edition 3D highlighter palette, I knew I was going to buy it. Huda Beauty Summer Solstice Highlighter palette features four shades – Saint Tropez (creamy texture with intense metallic glow), Malibu (bronze with subtle coppery undertones), Copacabana (duo-chrome pink) and Mykonos (holographic purple-lilac ). All four sculpting and highlighting shades can give you a perfect 3D highlight but just applying a little on the inner corner of your eyes or high points of your cheeks can complete your look. Get the sunset-inspired makeup looks.

Huda Beauty Summer Solstice Liquid Matte Lipstick- Mamacita
Mamacita is a perfect coral to give you that punch of holiday and summertime look. It is a dream color for medium to dark skin tones. The formula of this lip color is the same as original Huda beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick.
Huda Beauty Lip Strobe – Snobby
Hello, shimmer and shine! I must confess I hate sticky, goopy and running lip gloss. This lip strobe is a semi-sheer pink shade with gold and pink big shimmers. It comes with a heart shaped wand which glides on for like a dream. I love to layer it with my favorite lip shades or wear it all alone. Next, I am going to try it on my lid. What say?!
Too Faced Born This Way liquid foundation
I have read so many mixed reviews for this foundation and I didn’t want to buy it. But then I tried it in Sephora and within few minutes, I fell in love with this foundation. I got my perfect shade without any fuss, it gave me luminous look and it stayed put for 3 hours without setting spray. I haven’t used it for more than thrice so I am not going to give you my final verdict.
Marc Jacob Beauty Highliner Gel Crayon
I got a half size deluxe sample from Sephora with my online purchase. This liner is aaaahhhhhmazzing! I wouldn’t even think twice before purchasing the full size of this. I have been using Maybelline master drama gel liner but it smudges very easily. These crayons set quickly and don’t smudge. It is opaque, creamy, and long-lasting but the best thing about this product is – you don’t need a sharpener!
Benefit They’re Real Mascara
Sample! Another sample in my favorites. This mascara is a holy grail and I love the formula and fine bristles in the wand. This definitely makes my eyes look big and open. Big, bold lashes that have amazing volume and stay forever, Lashes don’t lie…
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
This is a veteran in my makeup collection. I keep coming back to this baby for precision, stay, and ease of use. Just “fill in the blanks” and you are good to go. Who likes dragon brows!
Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask
I have been using Tony Moly and Skinfood sheet masks and this is a new addition in the family. I found it in Carrefour and put it in my cart. This sheet mask is loaded with serum, it is enough to cover your neck and chest too. These masks are fun to use, instantly refreshing and on a budget. I used it for pre-party prep or as a post-party skin savior, this mask is a perfect for an instant revival of the skin.
L’oreal Pure Clay Charcoal Detoxifying Gel Wash
Love Love Love this gel wash! It is so gentle on my skin that it leaves it refreshed and radiant. This gel wash is a combination of three pure clays with the magnetic properties of charcoal to deeply cleanse and detoxify the skin. I would recommend it to use a good moisturizer after using this face wash.
That’s all! Have you tried any of these products? Please share your views. I’d love to hear what were your favorites last month.
