September BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I finally got my September box from BoxyCharm and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Glam Vibes Only and the items in the box really fit the theme.

752A01FE-F2A1-44AA-8255-5F28B69F2DC9

The first product we have is the Farmacy Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry. This was one of the choice items for the month, I had yet to let Boxy choose my choice item so I did this month and they chose this. This is supposed to be super hydrating, full of Vitamin C and help to reduce the look of dark circles and fine lines while leaving the under eye looking radiant. This is paraben free, formaldehyde donor free, synthetic fragrance free, phthalate free and mineral oil free and cruelty free. I’ve heard great things about Farmacy and I love a good eye cream, so I’m excited to give this a try.

Next we have the Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Shadows in Private Jet & Shimmering Sunset. This is a double ended liquid shadow set. I’m wearing this today and I really like it. The matte is really velvety and dried down pretty quickly and the metal is incredibly sparkly and super pretty. Private Jet is the matte, it has a doe foot applicator and is a light pink that has a lot of warmth to it and Shimmering Sunset, the metal has a pointed brush so it’s easy to apply as liner and it’s what I would call an amber/slightly rose gold glitter. 

IMG_6349

IMG_6350

IMG_6351

IMG_6355

Moving on we have the Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Pressed Pigment Palette. This came out not too long ago and I thought it was super pretty, so when I saw it in the box I was really excited. This palette has eight shadows, four shimmers and four mattes. 

IMG_6346

This palette has a really nice mirror on the left side, which is something that’s popular in new palettes right now. 

IMG_6347

The shimmers in this palette are super shimmery with fine glitters and reflective pearls and the mattes seem smooth and like they’d be easy to blend. 

IMG_6348

I swatched this palette on my arm and I did it in rows as it appears in the palette. The first shadow we have is Pero Like, a peachy/orange metallic with gold glitter. Next to that is Tiene Swing, I would call this a deep burgandy metallic that in the pan and somewhat in the swatch, looks like it has a hot pink glitter. Then there’s Ay Que Cute, a matte light pink that has some slight rosy tones and the last shadow in the row is Muy Excited. This is a matte that I would call like a burnt orange with some brown undertones. When I was doing the swatches I found Ay Que Cute and Muy Excited to be a little powdery, but not enough for me to not want to wear them and I didn’t think the other mattes were powdery. 

IMG_6356

The first shadow in the second row is Eres Un Show, this is a purple, lavender, metallic and it’s so pretty. Next to that is Guao, another purple metallic but this one is darker and has blue glitter. Then there’s Jajaja, this is a matte brown that I would call light-medium in tone. And the last shadow in the row is Ponte Hyper, this is a matte hot pink/fuchsia that is super bright and gives Barbie vibes. 

IMG_6357

The second to last product we have is the Laura Geller LashBoss Bold Mascara in Black. This says it will lengthen and curl your lashes without clumping. It has Widelash and Carob Tree Seed Extract to prevent fall out, re-densify lashes and keep them soft and conditioned. I’m confused by this mascara, the before and after pictures on the box don’t look all that different from each other and the wand itself seems pretty standard. I’m still going to try it out and if it wows me, I’ll let you know. 

IMG_6342

IMG_6343

And the last product we have is the SFGlow Glam In Paradise Cannabis Sativa 3 Piece Mask Set. This has Cannabis Sativa (hemp) Oil, Green Purslane Extract and Meadowfoam Seed Oil to hydrate, calm and destress skin. This is a 3 piece set and you get the Glam Straight Face Mask, Eye Woke Up Like This Eye Mask and Sun’s Out Pouts Out Lip Mask. I don’t use a lot of lip masks, but I do love face and eye masks, so I can’t wait to try these out. 

IMG_6337

IMG_6338

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same items in your September BoxyCharm boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my October box :).

August BoxyCharm Pop Up Sale Haul

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I finally received my BoxyCharm Pop Up Sale order and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. I wasn’t really looking for anything specific during the sale but I did end up buying one thing and I’m excited about.

What I bought is a MAC lipstick. They had a couple of color options, but I went with 640, Red Rock. I had a slight uh oh moment yesterday because it was a warm day and this sat in my mailbox, which retains quite a lot of heat, for a good amount of time and when I opened it I noticed it was sweating. I had to do some googling and quite a few websites said to put it in the fridge so I did and it worked like a charm. So if your lipsticks ever start sweating the fridge is the place to put them.

IMG_6207

IMG_6208

This lipstick is really creamy, highly pigmented and has a matte finish. This is what I would call a classic red. There was at least one other color option, it was a bright pink, but MAC does red so well that I couldn’t resist. 

IMG_6209

I’m of the school of thought that you can never have too many red lipsticks. I can already tell this is going to be perfect for the holidays and I can’t wait to wear it. 

IMG_6210

That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you shopped the August Boxy Pop Up Sale let me know what you got and if not I’d love to know what your favorite MAC lipstick is, 

Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many lipsticks :).

e.l.f. Bite Size Face Duo Review

Hi everyone, 

Recently e.l.f. brought out a new product in the form of their Bite Size Face Duos. These are very similar to the Bite Size Eyeshadow Palettes, but for your face. A little info on the Face Duos; there are 8 colors to choose from, they come in blush and highlighter or bronzer and highlighter, there is a mix of shimmer and matte shades, the colors in each duo compliment each other and the shade range is pretty big for only having 8 palettes. And one of these will run you $3.00. 

This is what each palette looks like and for being bite size the pan size is decent. 

IMG_6127

I bought one just to see how I liked it and I got mine in the shade Lychee.

IMG_6122

I really like this shade for blush, it’s a lightish pink and I’ve found that it’s very buildable. It’s been a long time since I’ve worn an e.l.f. blush and this one is very smooth and nicely pigmented. Initially I wasn’t sure what to think about the highlighter because this is my first experience with an e.l.f highlighter, but I do like it. This one is in a nice lighter gold that has a little bit of rosiness to it. It’s not the most pigmented highlighter ever, but it does build nicely and it’s very pretty when the light hits it. 

IMG_6128

IMG_6123

I know that I won’t buy all of the other shades because I won’t use them, but I’ll buy at least one or two more. If you’re wanting a new face palette in general or you’re looking for one to pop in your handbag, I would recommend these.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve purchased one of these let me know which and if you haven’t but are going to I’d love to know which one. 

Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many face palettes :).

August Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my August favorites. I tried out quite a few things this month and I feel like I have a pretty good mix, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have a few favorites from my August BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the MineTan Body Skin Hydra Glow Sleep Serum. This has a triple action hyaluronic acid formula with time release technology so it moisturizes while you sleep and is supposed to give you glowing skin when you wake up. I really like this, it sinks in super quickly, my skin feels really soft and moisturized and I can see that it’s more glowy. I will say that the first time I went to use this the pump was broken, but I managed to MacGyver it and it works great now. If you’re looking for a new nighttime serum I would recommend giving this a try.

IMG_6082

My next Boxy favorite is the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer. I was interested to see how this would compare to my favorite eye primers, Too Faced and Pretty Vulgar, and it’s just as good. This is quick drying, dries down clear, is cruelty free and not only locks in your eyeshadow all day but enhances the shadow.

IMG_6083

My second to last Boxy favorite is from the Trestique Summer Glow + Go Set and it’s the Maldives Luminescent highlighter. This highlighter is so good. It’s a gorgeous champagney shade, buildable and has a fantastic glow. I’ve been using this under my brows and in the inner corner of my eyes as well and it works so perfectly everywhere you put it. I don’t always like a cream highlighter, but this one is really creamy and blends out nicely. Definitely recommend this if you’re in the market for a new highlighter.

IMG_6130

IMG_6131

IMG_6133

IMG_6132

My last Boxy favorite is the Clarins Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. So this is a liquid lipstick with a moussey texture and a velvet finish. This is deep red in color but you can see it has some berry undertones. This feels really light on the lips, it’s long lasting and because of the shea butter it does leave your lips feeling hydrated. I wasn’t sure if I would really like the cushion applicator, but I do. It applies the product evenly and smoothly.

IMG_6084

IMG_6085

IMG_6090

And my last beauty favorite is two of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks. I did a review of two of the liquid matte mini sets, Au Naturel Nudes and Blushed Nudes, so I have a favorite from each. The first is from Au Naturel Nudes and it’s Sugar Mama. This is a peachy nude and it’s definitely true peach in color.

IMG_6001

IMG_6002

IMG_6024

My favorite from the Blushed Nudes set is Muse. This is so pretty, it’s deep rose in color and it looks so pretty on.

IMG_6014

IMG_6015

IMG_6021

Moving on I have a racing favorite and it’s the Indy 500. This year the 500 was very different than years past, but it was still super fun to watch and action packed. The USAF Thunderbirds did the flyover, Roger Penske gave the “Start Your Engines” command, there were great battles for position and ultimately Takuma Sato took home the victory, so huge congrats to him.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s my Summer Rewind playlist that Spotify put together for me. It has a good mix of my favorite songs, specifically those I’ve been loving during the summer months and I’m enjoying it.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your August favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great August :).

3 Recent Looks, Pur Cosmetics Festival 2.0 Palette Edition

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today I’m going to be doing one of my favorite types of posts, a Recent Looks. This time it’s all about looks I did with the Pur Cosmetics Festival 2.0 Palette. I really like this palette a lot, I think it’s very versatile and I like every look I’ve created with it.

The first look we have is the first look I did when I got the palette. I thought that one of the best ways to test the palette would be grab the brightest shade and just go for it. I’m really happy with how it came out. So the first thing I did was prime my face using the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Then I went in with my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory. Next I applied my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory under my eyes and a few other places and I set the whole thing with the KVD Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

IMG_6094

For the rest of my face, the first thing I did was bronze using my Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. I then used the Too Faced Daydreamer blush and highlighted using the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_6096

 

IMG_6097

For my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow primer. Then I went in with Dreamland which is a matte peachy/salmon shade and I put that in the crease. Next I applied Turn It Up, a really vibrant hot pink satin shade and I put that on the outer corner on my eye and blended into the crease a little. For the rest of my eye I applied Euphoric, a cream toned glitter. I put a little bit of Turn It Up and Dreamland under my eye and Euphoric in the inner corner of my eye. I lined my eyes using the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, then applied the Too Faced Damn Girl mascara. Because I did a bold eye I wanted to do a neutral lip, so I lined my lips using the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner and on top of that used the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Muneca. I set the entire look using the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray.

IMG_6098

IMG_6099

IMG_5854

For the second look I wanted to use the more neutral shades in the palette. The first thing I did was prime my face using the Touch In Sol Glassy Skin Balm. I then applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless foundation in 205, Ivory. Used my Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder in Translucent Peach Whisper.

IMG_6095

For the rest of my face I first used my Benefit Hoola bronzer. Then I applied the Alamar Cosmetics Isla blush and highlighted with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_6100

IMG_6101

When it came to my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Eyeshadow primer. The first shadow I used was Photo Op, a matte light orangey brown and I put that in the crease. Then I used On Set, a matte chocolatey brown and I put that on the outer corner of my eye, a little bit in the crease and blended. For the rest of my eye I applied Pure Bliss, which is a medium toned gold glitter. I put a bit of On Set under my eye and Pure Bliss in the inner corner. I used the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooperto line my eyes and applied the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. For my lips I took the Beauty Vaulte Lip Liner in Natty Nat and put that all over my lips, this is a fantastic red. And I set the whole look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

IMG_6102

IMG_6103

IMG_6038

The third look I did the other day and I just wanted to have fun with the bold glittery shades. The first thing I did was prime using the GlamGlow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless in 205, Ivory, Maybelline Fit Me concealer in 5, Ivory and set everything with the KVD Lock-It Translucent Setting Powder.

IMG_6094

For the rest of my face I started first with the Too Faced Extra Toasty bronzer. Then I applied the Model Co Blush in Peach Bellini and highlighted with the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter in Molten Rose Gold.

IMG_6104

IMG_6105

When it came to my eyes the first thing I did was prime using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow primer. Then I went in with Insta-Worthy, a matte pinky/brown and I put that in the crease. I then took Electric, a deep blue glitter, and put that on two thirds of my eye. For the rest of my eye I applied Utopia, a light blue glitter with flecks of white and yellow glitter and I blended those together a bit. I then took Insta-Worthy and put that under my eye. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and applied the Benefit They’re Real mascara. For my lips I used the Model Co Illusion Lip Liner and the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Crush. I set the whole look with the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray.

IMG_6106

IMG_6107

IMG_6080

That about wraps it up for this post, I do really like this type of post, so look out for more in the future. If you guys have this palette I’d love to know what your favorite look is that you’ve done using it.

Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).

August 2020 BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

I received my August BoxyCharm box yesterday and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Boxy Glamping, which is a great theme as for the late summer months.

892AEC5B-6C9A-4959-BF71-C7FE90F9976B

So the first product we have is my choice item for the month, the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Pore Purifying Cleanser. This is a cleanser that removes your makeup, residue and any dead skin you may have while also getting rid of sebum and decongesting your pores. This says it will leave your skin feeling mattified and fresh but it won’t dry it out. This is a product I’ve heard a lot of good things about, so I’m excited to try it and I’ll let you guys know what I think.

IMG_6081

The next product we have is the Minetan Body Skin Hydra Glow Sleep Serum. This has a triple action hyaluronic acid formula that works in a time release fashion so you get layers of hydration as you sleep. This is supposed to instantly absorb when you put it on and will not only leave your skin super hydrated but super glowy when you wake up. I really like the idea of this, so I’m interested to try it out and see how I like it.

IMG_6082

Moving on we have the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer. This primer says it will enhance your eyeshadow and keep it locked in from day to night so you don’t have to worry, dries quickly and transparent. It’s also cruelty free. I love a good eye primer and I do have a couple of favorites, so I’m interested to see how this one compares.

IMG_6083

The second to last product we have is the Trestique Summer Glow + Go Set. This is a mini set of Trestique’s best selling shades of highlight stick, blush stick, eyeshadow crayon and brow pencil. The highlighter is in the shade Maldives Luminescent and it’s an absolutely gorgeous champagney shade with just the right amount of shimmer and a great glow when it hits the light. I was looking to buy another highlighter in a shade like this, so this is perfect. The blush is in the shade Moroccan Rose. It’s a nice rosey shade that leans towards the natural side and appears to be very buildable. I don’t usually like blush sticks, but I’ll try this one out and see how I feel. The eyeshadow crayon is in the shade Tahitian Shimmer and it’s a unique shadow. It does have a nice amount of shimmer and went on really creamy. It’s a mix of a brown/gold/bronze. It’s a very pretty shadow. And the brown pencil is in the shadow Americano. It’s a nice medium brown in a warmer tone. I like the triangle shape of the pencil and how you can get in there and be precise.

IMG_6086

IMG_6087

IMG_6088

IMG_6089

And the last product we have is the Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. This is a liquid lipstick with a moussey texture and a velvety finish. In tone this is a deeper red, but you can tell it has berry undertones. It has shea butter to condition and nourish your lips so they feel hydrated for hours after application. Based on the swatch I can tell this is super pigmented and it felt really light on my hand so I assume it will feel light on the lips. This also has one of those cushion applicators, and I don’t have a lot of lip products with that style of applicator so hopefully it applies as well as others.

IMG_6084

IMG_6085

IMG_6090

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your August BoxyCharm box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my September box :).

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review Part Two

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with part two of Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review, I will link part one below if you haven’t read it. I wanted to first talk about the Huda Beauty Legit Lashes mascara. I got a sample of this when I placed the lipstick order and I tried it out today. First impression, I like it a lot more than I thought I would. I have pretty long lashes anyway, but the volume and length this gives is impressive. I highly recommend.

So the lip set I’m going to be talking about today is the Blushed Nudes. This like the Au Naturel Nudes has a plastic sleeve over it and Blushed Nudes is written in metallic pink.

IMG_6009

IMG_6010

IMG_6011

In this set you get four mini and this set focuses on nudes that have both warm and cool undertones. The first lipstick we have is Bombshell and I would describe this as a peachy nude.

IMG_6012

IMG_6013

IMG_6020

 

The next lipstick we have is Wifey. I would say that this is on that pinkish/very light brown line.

IMG_6018

IMG_6019

IMG_6023

The second to last lipstick we have is Muse. This is such a pretty color, it’s a deeper rose shade and this is a lip color you can tell is going to look so nice on.

IMG_6014

IMG_6015

IMG_6021

And the last liquid lipstick we have is Venus. This is the one lipstick in this kit that’s more on the brown side, but it’a nice medium brown.

IMG_6016

IMG_6017

IMG_6030

That about wraps it up for this post, I looked on the Huda Beauty website and there is a third lip set with all brown lipsticks so if that ever comes back in stock I’m going to purchase it.

Until next time, I’d love to know which of these lipstick shades is your favorite and you can never have too many liquid lipsticks :).

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Mini Set Review Part One

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! During National Lipstick Day a ton of different beauty brands were having great sales, so I had a little look around and found a few things I wanted from Huda Beauty. I ended up picking up two of their liquid matte mini sets, I also picked up a sample of the Legit Lashes mascara, and I’m going to be talking about them in two different posts.

This was my first time buying straight from the Huda Beauty website and I have to say I love their packaging. When I opened the box I was greeted with tissue paper with lips on it and the products themselves were in a bubble wrap envelope. The bubble wrap itself is in the shape of hearts which I’ve never seen before and I think it’s adorable.

IMG_5991

IMG_5992

So the set I’m going to talk about today is the Au Naturel Nudes. This has a plastic sleeve over it and Au Naturel Nudes is written in metallic rose gold.

IMG_5993

IMG_5994

IMG_5995

In these sets you get four minis and this set in particular is between peachy and brown, warmer nudes if you will, in shade range. I have a few of the Huda Beauty matte liquid lipsticks and I really like formulation, they have great staying power, they’re nicely pigmented and they don’t feel heavy on the lips. The first shade we have is Girlfriend. This is a deeper shade, somewhere between peach and brown.

IMG_5996

IMG_5997

IMG_6005

The next shade we have is Trendsetter. This is more of a true brown.

IMG_5998

IMG_5999

IMG_6006

The second to last lipstick we have is Sugar Mama. This is peachy in color and it’s what I would call more of a true peach.

IMG_6001

IMG_6002

IMG_6024

And the last liquid lipstick in this set is Bikini Babe. This is the lightest shade in the set and this is a really light nude. I have a two other liquid lips in shades similar to this and I really like it.

IMG_6003

IMG_6004

IMG_6008

That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys have this set or any of these lipsticks I’d love to know what your favorite shade is/what shade you have.

Until next time, have a good weekend and you can never have too many liquid lipsticks :).

July 2020 BoxyCharm Add-Ons Haul

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my BoxyCharm Add-Ons order, so I thought that today would be a good day to go through it. There wasn’t too much that I wanted in the Add-Ons sale for July, but I did end up buying a set of brushes from a brand I’ve been wanting to try out.

What I picked up is the Moda Pro by Royal & Langnickel 5 piece Deluxe Eye Kit. This is a brand I’ve seen in BoxyCharm before I was subscribed and watched unboxings on YouTube, which I still do because I like to see which variation of the box people get. But I hadn’t tried them out myself. So when I saw them in the sale I decided to do just that.

IMG_5959

These brushes are black with a textured handled. On the front of the brush it has the Royal & Langnickel logo which is R&L with a crown on top and under that it says Moda Pro, all of that is written in silver. On the back of each brush it says what type of brush it is, also written in silver and the brush heads are black and white. They feel good in the hand, they’re nice to grip and they feel nice and soft.

IMG_5970

The first brush we have is the BMX-466 Shade brush. This isn’t as dense as some shade brushes, but I don’t mind that.

IMG_5960

IMG_5961

Next we have the BMX-430 Crease brush. This is fluffy and has a little point which is the general shape I like for a crease and blending brush.

IMG_5962

IMG_5963

Then we have the BMX-420 Detail brush. This is a small, dense brush with a slightly pointed tip and I don’t have anything quite like this.

IMG_5964

IMG_5965

The second to last brush we have is the BMX-402 Smudger. This is a small densely packed brush that is slightly rounded in shape.

IMG_5966

IMG_5967

And the last brush we have is the BMX-498 Liner brush. This has a chiseled edge and they recommend this for not only lining your upper and lower lash lines but for filling in your brows. All of which I’m going to try and see what I like it for the best.

IMG_5968

 

IMG_5969

The BoxyPopUp is coming up next week. Early access for Premium and Luxe subscribers opens on Monday August 10th and all access, for all subscribers opens Tuesday August 11th. Based on the sneak peeks I’ve seen it looks like there’s some great items in there.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve tried Moda Pro brushes I’d love to know your opinion. If you haven’t tried Moda Pro brushes but you did shop the July Add-Ons sale I’d love to know what you got.

Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many brushes :).

July Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my July favorites. I have a pretty fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July BoxyCharm box and if you haven’t read that I’ll leave a link below. My first BoxyCharm favorite is the Clean Skin Club Vitamin C Brightening Booster. This has pineapple, watermelon and green tea extracts and it’s supposed to brighten your complexion, protect against UV damage and  help reduce signs of aging. I’ve been using this since I got it and I really like it. I can feel and see a difference in my skin. This also smells really good and it says on their website that it’s good for normal, oily, combination, dry and sensitive skin. So if you’re looking for a new element in your skincare routine I recommend this.

IMG_5859

My next Boxy favorite is the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray. I cannot say enough good things about this, I love it. It’s infused with fresh coconut extract so you get that nice tropical, summery smell and has micro pearls so you get a glowy and dewy finish. It also comes out in a really fine mist and I prefer that in a setting spray. This dries down pretty fast and doesn’t leave you with a sticky or tacky feeling, it does lock in your makeup and the glow you get is enough that you can see it but it’s not over the top. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

My last Boxy favorite is the Lavish Quick Color Switch Dry Brush Cleaner. This is a spongey brush cleaner that you swirl your brush on and it removes the pigment. I’ve been using this since I got it and I think it’s a great little tool to have. It picks up the pigment pretty quickly and basically does exactly what it says on the tin. I appreciate that this is easy to clean, you wash it with your favorite cleanser and let it dry before putting it back in the container.

And my last beauty favorite is my 4th of July makeup look. I did do a post all about this look and how I did it, which I’ll link below, but I had a lot of fun with this look and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Moving on I have a gardening favorite and it’s my sunflowers. Last summer I grew sunflowers for the first time, but when I got them they were starts and this year I decided I wanted to try and grow them from seed. I bought a packet of the heirloom sunflowers so when they bloom they should be multicolored, which I’m excited about. This year has been a little rough on them, in the beginning slugs really ate them and I was convinced they weren’t going to grow at all but I searched a ton of different gardening websites and they all recommended using copper tape which I did buy. Since putting the copper tape around my planter the slugs are gone and the sunflowers have really grown and I’m super happy with them.

And my last favorite, a music favorite, is the reissue of Paul McCartney’s Flaming Pie album, this album has also been remastered. Although the massive reissue doesn’t come out in full until July 31st, there have been a few songs released already. Flaming Pie isn’t an album I’ve listened to a lot over the years, I know a small handful of the songs, but I’m excited about the reissue as a whole. There are different versions of the reissue you can get, the lavish collector’s edition includes five CDs, two DVDs and four LPs. The deluxe edition includes five CDs and two DVDs. You can also get individual editions in the form of three LPs, two LPs and two CDs. It will also be on Spotify and other streaming platforms. If you haven’t heard of the Flaming Pie album I would definitely recommend giving it a listen.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great July :).
