July Humble Beauty Opinion #80!


Last Saturday of the month = my July Humble Beauty Opinion! 
My monthly subscriptions, purchases, reviews, wishlists & empties!

Let's start with my monthly subscription to Ipsy!
This month was a pretty good one, 
I like the bag itself- very summery!
Lots of bronzy products, I am enjoying the Pixi gloss in "Sheer Rose",
the Seraphine "Daisy + Pearl- Natural Radiance Booster" is a little dark for a highlighter 
but maybe when (if) I get a tan?!
I also like the way the Ariul "Fresh Herd Hand Cream" 
and just ran out of my hand cream so this is perfect!
SO much hand washing = dry hands!

I picked the Purlisse Beauty "Illuminating BB Cream in Light Medium" this month,
Love me some BB Cream, so perfect for this time of year!

I also added the "Clean It Up Duo" for $5 from Ipsy,
I was excited to try the TonyMoly Gel to Water Cleanser 
& you know the saying "a little bit goes a long way"? 
This product is the exact opposite. 
A lot goes no where... Not a fan
The feel "Renewed Pumpkin Walnut Facial Cleanser" is good, 
I already knew I liked this but the St. Ives apricot scrub 
is still my favorite (since like middle school)

Speaking of Ipsy, anyone want a free glam bag?! 
I have one to give away!
Expires 8/18- first come, first serve!
{this is the first time since last year 

Did I need another makeup palette??
Nope.
Did I finally pick up the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Pallete Volume II? 
Yup.
But in my defense it was 50% off...


It is so pretty!
I have been enjoying it,
 but I will say I wanted to love the yellow but it is not my fave, 
comes off a little muddy and not as bright on the eye

I also picked up a new Z Palette after they posted this XL Pout Pop on Instagram!
I love this one and needed a new one to continue my de-potting journey with my Z Potter

It arrived yesterday with a makeup sample and I am so excited!

I was looking for a good waterproof mascara 
(you know swimming and such)
came super recommended, 
and this stuff is HARD to get off, does require oil and makeup remover to get off, 
no running in the pool!

I finally placed an order with Lights Lacquer to pick up a few of the polishes 
I have been wanting for a while.
I picked up {from left to right}
So excited!

for this super summer mani!
Review:: I will say, it took about 4 coats to get the yellow opaque which I didn't love, 
and I am not sure I waited long enough for the polish to dry before adding the stickers so it did peel off in like 10 hours... so it was cute but I need more practice with it!

But it is so cute for summer and matches this Willie's Superbrew hard seltzer can perfectly!

My hubby also picked some new Trader Joe's candles 
and I am loving these summery scents!

Only have one item on my monthly makeup wishlist:
I really want to try this Milani "Green Goddess Makeup Melter":

Kinda makeup related- kinda unrelated 
but I found this oldie pic from @ashknowsbeauty πŸ”› Instagram 
saved in my Spectacular folder 
& I still WANT these Benefit glasses!


This month's empties, what I used up, loved, hated  
& all my humble opinions in between:
bath: "Cozy Nights" from Target- this is my favorite candle ever, especially love this scent in Fall | Trader Joe's "Tomato Leaf"- these smell nice and exactly like a tomato leaf but the scent for these does not carry | Trader Jacques (aka Trader Joe's) "French Liquid Soap"- I love this hand soap! Smells so fancy! It is a must for me now! | Jo Malone "Geranium & Walnut" Body Scrub- I love the way this smells and the smell lasts after the shower! | Dove beauty bar in "mango butter"- I love how this soap smells | OUAI "Dry Shampoo Foam"- not going to lie initially I hated this, but I ended up falling in love, gives your hair volume while taking away the grease, especially loved it with shorter hair | Matrix "Wonder Boost" this is suppose to be used to boost your roots but I also loved it as an all over hairspray/volume boost

 beauty: beauty 360 large cotton balls- I get these from CVS but I think I prefer the jumbo ones for makeup removing and toner | Trader Joe's "Coconut Body Butter"- an all time fave! So moisturizing and smells so good! | Trader Joe's "Cucumber Avocado Body Butter"- this was a nice switch up from my coconut one but I didn't like it as much | OPI Avoplex "High Intensity Hand & Nail Cream"- I have had this forever, initially it is a nice cream but the moisturized feeling doesn't last | Crabtree & Evelyn "Gardeners" hand cream- this is my mom's favorite, I also love the way it smells and it is super moisturizing | The Beauty Crop "Casablanca" highlighter from Ipsy- I love this green shade (still using it I just depotted it into my new Z Palette | Nomad "Light Infusion Powder" also from Ipsy and also depotted, love this purple/pink duo chrome | theBalm "GRL PWDR" & "DAY2NITE" palettes, also depotted and mainly bought for this amazing packaging! Drunk Elephant "Protini Polypeptide Cream"- I like this moisturizer, so far I have enjoyed every Drunk Elephant product I've tried | belif "Moisturizing eye bomb"- also loved this eye cream and have gone through a few of these  (I use it for hydration, I don't have a lot of darkness under my eyes) | belif "the true cream"- another great moisturizer! benefit "Majiorette" cream blush- I loved this but I just don't use cream blushes as much and this has definitely gone bad, it is discolored and the smell is off, need a good powder orange blush | Milani "Brow Fix Kit" middle shade tin + brush- I have had this depotted for a long time now and I love this product, a little goes a long way and it lasted for YEARS. I have other brow products I am going through now but I will probably look for this again | la prairie foundation- this stuff is so fancy but not exactly sure it is worth the price tag of over $250... it is a little too dewy/sticky of a finish for me. I do love the concealer in the top lid though | 10/10 Optics eyeglass cleaner- it took me too long to go through one of these, clearly I need to clean my glasses more frequently | Ciate "Fierce Flicks" eyeliner- I got this from Ipsy and tried it this week and DO NOT LIKE, there is not enough product to make the felt tip glide, more work than worth it | wet n wild "Winged n' Wild" green eyeliner- I LOVE THIS thank god I bought back ups before it was sold out on their website, the perfect dark green eyeliner! This one is broken and has lasted a long time | naked princess "Barely Coral"- I love this lip gloss, I think I first got it from a Birchbox like 8 years ago and purchased a full size but the top cracked and it has been leaking, time to say good bye | Kensie "So Pretty"- bought this from Ipsy, it became my "quarantine fragrance" and I loved it | Estee Lauder "Advanced Night Repair"- another sample that I am not sure I feel about it, it is not moisturizing and it is hard to tell if it does anything since it is a small sample


Also, 
I am obsessed with these name things floating around the internet.
Thanks to my friend Krista for sharing this gem with me.

So accurate since 3 months of quarantine I forgot how to do my makeup 
and look lot like this these days.
