Hi Girlies :)
Summer is almost over and so is my vacation *sigh*. I know I'm acting like a child, but you know what I mean lol. Here are my favorite things for the month of July. Although the weather wasn't that hot here in SF (it was actually really cold and foggy ugh tell me about crazy weather), I kept my makeup light and fresh. Hope you enjoy!
1. SkinCeuticals Purifying Cleanser & Micro Exfoliating Scrub
This was a prize from Cheryl's Giveaway and I'm so so glad that I won, because these are such great products. The cleanser is very gentle yet good at cleansing. It doesn't lather that much, but it's also not like one of those Aveda cleansers that feels like lotion on the skin and doesn't lather at all. The scrub is even better! It has tiny tiny beads, hence the name, and feels so good and I mean sooo good on the skin. Sorry it's really hard to describe how it feels more than good haha. But yeah, I will recommend it to anyone with any skin types - even people with sensitive skin! Both of these products have a 'no scent' scent which is great.
2. MAC Cremeblend Blush in Optimistic Orange (MAC in Lillyland '10)
This blush is gorgeous. It looks kinda scary in the pan, but blends out as a really nice pink-orange. I use this blush all year around, but tend to use it more when I'm tanned - like right now :). Not really sure if it's a limited edition product, because I think you can get this at MAC Pro - I could be wrong, but yeah if it is, it's a shame cuz it's a gorgeous color.
3. MUFE Aqua Liner #12
This liner was my best friend during the month, because I've been training for the half marathon. Through all the sweat (haha gross) from running 8+ miles, it seemed to stay right in place. It does have a slight glossy finish which I'm not a big fan of, but besides that, I give two thumbs up. The applicator is in a good size as well.
4. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in #48 Evasion
I always had a doubt for Chanel cosmetics, but I guess, when it comes to lipsticks, you pay for what you get. The color isn't that special, but the finish is bomb! I found that it makes my lips look more plump and healthier. Great for everyday makeup - you don't really need a mirror to apply it, it's one of those easy lipsticks :).
5. The SF Marathon
If you have been reading my blog and following me on twitter, you know that I went for the half marathon on July 31st. And guess what? I happily finished the course in 2:29:54! It's obviously not the best record, but I finished!!! SFM managed to plan the course so nicely and the weather was great. Such a great experience and worth the hurt :).
