This month, I’ve had quite a few beauty favorites. I mostly pay special attention to the products in my collection containing SPF during the summer months. So, let’s continue.

Lorac protecTINT Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30: In the summers, I tend to opt for tinted moisturizers over foundations. I like this one mainly because it’s light enough for my fair complexion. I have a hard time finding something that isn’t too yellow. The SPF is an added bonus; 2-for-1 deals are my favorite. It’s one less product to put on my face.
Rimmel Stay Matte powder in #012, Buff Beige: While I don’t like to have perfectly matte skin during the summer, my face still will get very oily throughout the day, so I dust my face with this powder in the morning to control some of the shine as the day progresses.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in (COLOR): Due to a lack of sleep and fair skin, I usually have some noticeable dark circles. I’ve been loving this concealer; it really brightens up the under eye area.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment with SPF 15: I didn’t like this product when I first got it, but for some reason I started using it again in June/July. It’s moisturizing enough and smells nice. But what I really like about it is the SPF. I’ve had my lips irritated from sun before, and I won’t make that mistake again. Your lips need some sun protection, too!
Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in “Berry Rose:” I’ve been in the market for a nice berry lipstick recently; I needed a break from red. I love red, but I needed a small break. And this lipstick definitely did the trick. It is very moisturizing, and the color is beautiful. The color doesn’t last as long as some of my other lipsticks, but that’s okay. It still lasts a good while.
Essie’s “E-nuf is e-nuf:”
 I am partial to darker nail colors, all year. But this one is really pretty and bright. In the summers, I usually have a red on my nails. This is red while still having a more coral look, which I like. And it stays on the nails for a good amount of time.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen: I chose the broad spectrum can with SPF 70. It’s easy for me to apply to myself without missing spots. I’m kind of picky about sunscreen sometimes, because I burn incredibly easy, but this worked for me. And the smell isn’t overbearing, which is one downside to a lot of sunscreens–unless you enjoy the sunscreen smell.
St. Ives Skin Renewing Body Lotion with collagen elastin: I have a tough time finding lotions I really like; I have psoriasis on my arm, so anything too scented is usually a no-go. But this smells lovely and doesn’t irritate my skin, which is good. It’s moisturizing and makes my skin feel soft. It’s supposed to make your skin appear younger, but I’m 20 and haven’t seen tremendous results in that respect.
PINK Sun Kissed Body Mist: Technically this isn’t mine; it’s my sister’s, but I’ve been using it for a few weeks now (Shhh, don’t tell her).  I usually can’t be around coconut fragrance as I am allergic, but this coconut water & vanilla scented spray doesn’t irritate my skin or anything. Maybe it’s because it’s coconut water and not fragrance? I’m not sure. But I like this. The only downside, and I find this with many body mists, it doesn’t stay on your skin very long.
Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque: I’m a little late for this conditioner train, but I finally purchased this to try, and I LOVE it. The smell, first of all, is amazing. I wouldn’t use this more than once or twice a week; it’s really nourishing. I only wash my hair once a week, so I do use this almost every time I wash my hair. I’ve never really seen a huge difference in my hair with various conditioners, but I am definitely like the results from this one.

Google Drive: My computer recently crashed and I lost a lot of files. Luckily, I back my computer up every week and have been for months. Unfortunately, when I plugged my external hard drive into my fixed computer, there was not a single file on it. ❤ Life. So I’ve been putting some ongoing projects and things on Google Drive so I can access them anywhere and they won’t get lost if my computer were to get broken again.

Until next time,
Jacqie
