Wow this summer has flown by; it’s already the end of July! But this means that it’s time for a review on the products I’ve been using this past month!

This is a body mist from Victoria’s Secret; it’s in the scent Wild & Breezy. According to the bottle, the fragrance is a mix of red guava and passion flower. I would describe it as a fresh scent with a hint of sweetness.

I usually gravitate towards my other body sprays, but I’ve been reaching for this one the most recently. I think it’s because since summer tends to make us feel gross and sweaty, it’s nice to have a fragrance that smells fresh on your skin.

This is the super popular Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. It’s supposed to keep your makeup looking fresh all day and people swear by it, but I’m not completely sold on it.

I was hoping this spray would make my makeup look natural and keep me matte. When I spray this on my face, it does make it look less powdery, but I’ve noticed my skin tends to get oily about halfway through the day.

I have the travel size version and I’m almost finished with it, but I won’t be repurchasing for now. If anything changes, I’ll update in a future review post.

I started trying out the Maybelline Fit Me foundation recently and I like it, although there are a couple cons.

One of the first cons was that it was difficult for me to find a good shade match, even though they have a large range of shades. It took me about 3 tries before I found a match I was satisfied with. The next con is that even though it’s the matte and poreless formula, it doesn’t keep me matte all day, but I’m currently overlooking that since it’s summer and it’s hard to keep any makeup from melting off at the moment.

It does have a strange smell, but it fades quickly. I also wish it had a pump because it can get messy.Β 

The positives are that it’s a formula that feels lightweight on the skin and it provides medium coverage. My skin is behaving for now, so I don’t need a lot of coverage and it doesn’t have SPF so you won’t get a white cast in photos.

Overall, it’s a good drugstore foundation that I would recommend trying out, but I’m sure there are better options out there.

This is a regular Burt’s Bees lip balm with a peppermint flavor I actually really like this chapstick; the peppermint scent grew on me and I think the minty flavor even slightly plumps my lips when I use it.

Ever since I bought this eyeshadow quad, I’ve been using it nonstop. Whenever I want a natural look, I mix together the white and gold shades together. If I want some more definition in the eyes, I add a light layer ofΒ the dark brown into the outer corners, crease, and lower lashline. And when I want something in between, I use the more coppery shade.

I never expected to reach for this quad as much as I have in the last couple of months and I’ve been really enjoying it. I would highly recommend it since it’s a versatile palette and it’sΒ also the only quad I’ve been taking whenever I travel.

A product that turned into one of my favorites this month was this lip cream from NYX in Cannes because of how natural it looks.

When I purchased it, I thought it would be a pinky shade, but it actually looks quite subtle. I love the matte finish and it lasts pretty well unless I eat something messy. Since I haven’t gone to any special events lately, I’ve been sticking to more natural makeup and this is a great finishing touch to pull my looks together.

So that’s my review for this month! I hope you enjoyed it and that it was helpful. Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you lovelies soon!
