Monthly Favorite Beauty Products for July and August

Huda Beauty Summer Solstice Highlighter Palette

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.

July & Favorite Monthly Favorites

 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.

Lots of love!

  2. I cant believe July is over and its septemeber already. Its flown hasnt it. Some great reviews ans products. I am always up to trying new products although my skin is fussy. I love Garnier products so the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask sounds a must. Look forward to this months post of products

  3. Oh no I think I was too late for the Instagram giveaway but I have to say that solstice highlighter was gorgeous. Do you know if it cruelty free x

  4. I’ve been struggling with dry skin, possibly because of the weather, and decided to go back to using facial masks, I don’t know why I stopped doing it, really, need to take better care of myself.

  5. I like L’oreal and Garnier. I own only a handful of beauty products. One because I don’t know how to use most beauty products and two, because I’m just lazy when it comes to this stuff, LOL.

  6. Between water walking at the pool and the garden, my skin is in need of some TLC. I’d especially love to try the face masks. They’re one of my favorite ways to pamper myself. x

  7. I have tried the Garnier tissue masks and L’Oreal clay detoxifying gel. They are wonderful products to get nice, glowing skin. I want to try the liquid matte lipstick. Looks fabulous too.

  8. I’ve been meaning to try Huda Beauty Lip Strobe and I am looking for honest reviews so I could see if it will be worth it to buy one. Does it last long? sticky? transfer proof?

  9. I’m super jealous of your Huda palette. It really is gorgeous. The Garnier sheet masks are amazing aren’t they. So easy to use and no mess too!

  10. Love the BORN THIS WAY fondation name xD Need to try it, will think of Lady Gaga everytime I will be using it. I need to make more face masks…

  11. I’ve been in the market for a new cleanser, and I found this new L’Oreal cleansing gel. The charcoal cleanser works very well to draw out impurities, and I like its creamy, gel type texture. Best of all it’s super gentle on the skin too!

  12. I’ve tried the Born this Way foundation but I wasn’t the biggest fan. The shade I tried matched well but it didn’t have enough staying power for me. I like foundations that stay put all day. That Huda palette is soooo pretty! I need to try it.

    1. After using for a while, I also agree with you. Using a good primer and setting spray is a must if you want to enjoy this foundation. Thanks 🙂

  13. Loved all your favorite beauty collections. I will try those Garnier sheet mask as they are easy to use and can be done while travelling also.

    1. Yes! These masks are awesome for travel lovers like you. It will neither take much space nor it is messy to use. Thanks 🙂

  14. All of these things look really good, it’s a shame I haven’t tried anything from your favorites list. I was actually really intrigued about those face masks by Garnier but then I have 2 boxes of Japanese face masks coming from Japan; hence, I have controlled the desire for now. I was looking forward to winning that palette by Hudabeauty but I couldn’t win it. 😐

    1. Thanks for participating in the giveaway! I am sorry you couldn’t win it but I would suggest getting hold of this palette whenever you get an opportunity…you will love it! Thanks 🙂

  15. I love lists like this, and being introduced to new products! There are so many on this list I want to try. First up just may be that Born This Way foundation. It looks great.

  16. I will have to add a few of these products to my list to pick up. The Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask is amazing.

  17. I am loving the Huda Beauty Summer Solstice Liquid Matte Lipstick- Mamacita, such a beautiful colour! And I love clay masks, they always make my skin feel amazing.

    1. Huda is one of the biggest Instagram influencers and she started her own brand. Check her Instagram, I am sure you will love her instantly 🙂

  18. You have some fab looking monthly faves for July and August! I’ve not tried any of them before so I may just have to go and do a spot of shopping …

  19. Huda has an amazing range of products. Unfortunately we don’t get them in India. I’m going to buy these amazing products whenever I’m Dubai or where I’m able to locate them. Great post.

    1. Huda should start selling her products in India, my friends are missing some awesome products. I hope you get it online or when you visit Dubai 🙂

    1. I love Huda Beauty Liquid matte lipsticks. It has got the best matte formula as you will never experience dryness on your lips. Thanks 🙂

  20. So many wonderful new products to try out! I’m terrible in that I don’t use anything on my skin, just water to wash. Still, I look 15 years younger than I am though. 🙂
