When I first bought this Bath & Body Works Blackberry Spice Candle (a few months ago), I didn’t really love it. I’m not sure what has happened between now and then but lately I can’t get enough of it. It’s the perfect combination of fruity and spice – it even has a bit of a cinnamon scent. It’s one of those candles that you can leave burning for hours and not get sick of (hence by the picture, I do very often). Mine is almost empty but I will definitely be repurchasing this.

IMG_0723-002I’ve been loving this Real Techniques Stippling Brush to apply my bronzer. It’s the perfect size and gives me a natural contour. I haven’t used it for applying foundation yet but I’m sure it also works great for that. (Not that you can ever really go wrong with any Real Techniques brushes!) This Mirabella Eye Blender brush is seriously a lifesaver. I have been loving dark smokey eyes lately and this brush is really what makes the look. With some blending brushes, I find that they tend to take the pigment/color of the eyeshadow away rather than blend them – if that makes any sense. This brush just works great. It really blends everything together perfectly.

I usually stay away from leave-in conditioners because my hair is so oily and they usually just don’t work out. But I’m so glad I discovered this healthysexyhair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave in Conditioner. It’s such a light mist that it doesn’t add any more unnecessary oils to my hair. I apply this only to the ends of my hair after the shower or after my hair has dried. It makes my ends so soft and really helps to detangle my constantly knotty hair.

I’ve been going for pretty natural daytime makeup looks lately. This month I’ve been all about light eyeshadow, big lashes, bold brows, and pink lips. These products have become my go to favorites to achieve this look. I lightly fill in my eyebrows everyday so I’ve been wanting to try a brow gel for a while. After using the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear, I can’t believe I haven’t been using this all along.  This product might be my greatest discovery of the month. It keeps my brows perfectly in place all day and gives them an almost glossy finish – which actually makes them look more natural (since I fill them in). L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara has been a staple in my beauty bag for a few years now. I love this mascara. The brush is super flexible so you are really able to elongate your lashes. This is my go to for big, long, bold lashes and I’ve been loving it lately.

I’ve recently rediscovered this Almay 421 Trio for Browns and I love it. It’s so convenient to use because all the colors are in one small palette. It’s also small enough that I can bring it with me to touch up throughout the day. Even though it’s a trio for brown eyes (I have greenish blue), I still really like the colors. I love the light pink shade – it’s become my go to lid color for my everyday look. I will either use the crease color provided in the palette or just use my bronzer if I want something lighter. The top beige color is a great highlighter.

I just bought this Sephora Glossy Lip Pencil in Pale Pink (first swatch pictured above) on Thursday and I’m already obsessed. I definitely recommend this lip pencil to everyone! It’s not only beautiful and super pigmented but it’s so soft and smooth. It feels more like a lip butter than a gloss. I’m definitely going to go back to Sephora and buy more shades because this lip pencil is amazing!

What have you been loving this month?
