July Favorites/Where have I been??

Hi friends! Long time no blog! Seriously, I am so so sorry for being gone for so long (over a month?). I don’t really have a good excuse for where I have been. For about a week in July I was away on vacation, and then when I came back I was feeling very unmotivated and uninspired to write blog posts. I was also working a lot and overall busier than usual. Every time I got home I was just feeling tired and not feeling like doing much of anything. It was just a giant slump for me. On top of that, I wasn’t even playing with makeup as much as usual because I didn’t have the time for it(sad face!). Any who, that’s my rather weak explanation of where I’ve been. I’m finally feeling ready to start writing again! I have missed WP so much! Oh, to add to my blogging woes my WP app on my iPhone has been acting up-it keeps crashing when I try to read blogs. The WP app is my favorite way to read blogs and comment, so I’ve been missing out on reading everyone’s posts (depressing!). I contacted their support several times and finally someone told me that it is a bug they are hoping to resolve next week. I really hope it gets fixed soon because I love reading blogs on my phone (much easier/faster than on my laptop).

Ok, my rant is done. I have really missed you all! Again, I’m sorry for my disappearance act. I’m feeling really bad about it and am also very worried about how often I’ll be able to blog once I start school in a couple weeks. Ahh!

Alright, for real Iet’s move on to makeup! Keep reading for my (very) belated July Favorites.

It wouldn’t be a monthly favorites post without a favorite foundation combo! Seriously, every month it seems I find a new foundation to mix with my L’oreal True Match Lumi foundation.

Favorite foundation combo: L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation mixed with L’oreal True Match Lumi. I yet again picked a shade too dark for me in the Pro-Matte line, so mixing it with the too-light Lumi has given me a perfect match. It also tones down the matte-ness of the Pro-Matte foundation, which makes it easier to blend and slightly more natural looking. Love the two together!

Favorite eyeshadow palette-Lorac Unzipped Palette: I hadn’t picked up this palette in a long time and I’m glad I did, it is so pretty! I love the shine/frost of some of the shades, they are very vibrant. My two favorite shades have been Unattainable (shimmery copper) and Unreal (shimmery rosy champagne). The shadows in this palette are a little drier in texture but the color payoff is great. I was really using this palette non-stop the past month. I also love how easily the shades pair together, it makes doing a beautiful eye look very simple.

Favorite Lip Color-Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Drive In”: I have been using this shade non-stop lately, it is so stunning! It is a bright purple/fuchsia shade. These liquid lipsticks dry down very matte and there is no worrying about the color transferring off. It is also very easy to apply because the perfect amount of product comes onto the doe foot when you take it out of the tube (unlike the Stila liquid lipsticks, way too much product comes off!). I currently have three other shades of this and ordered three more (ordered more before they announced the new shades, dangit! #makeupaddictproblems).


L to R: Colourpop Drive In, Lorac Unattainable, Lorac Unreal

As you can see, there wasn’t too much going on in terms of makeup for me during July. But, the products I did mention I love a lot. That’s all for today my lovely peeps. I think I’ll maybe do a little post on my vacation in case you are curious about it. I think it will be fun to write about 🙂

Until next time!
