July Favorites

Hey guys!
Congratulations on making it through July! I had an incredibly month with some incredible people. I am also very excited for August because I have a very fun trip planned and August is also my birthday month! This month, I focused on my travel favorites and found products that are really useful when on the go.
Todays favorites post is also very exciting because it is a collab with Basia Bailey! Basia is one of my favorite youtubers to watch because she is so genuine and sweet! She also has the BEST smile. Click here to check out her channel and be sure to tell her we sent you! 
Let's get into the favorites!
-Not your mother's dry shampoo is one of the best dry shampoos i have ever used. The scent is really good, and it does an amazing job at freshening up your hair without leaving a white cast.
-Mario Badescu rose spray is really good when traveling. The product freshens up your complexion and it smells like pure roses!
-ELF hydrating serum is one of my new holy grail skin care items. The serum itself is lightweight and very hydrating. If you have oily skin, this would be a perfect morning moisturizer and if you have dry skin this is a great serum to layer under your moisturizer.
-ELF blush brush is such a great brush for setting under-eye concealer, contouring, and of course blush! The brush is so versatile and inexpensive. I highly recommend.
-MUFE smoothing primer is incredible if you have larger pores or oily skin. This primer is the best pore filling/smoothing primer I have ever used. I find it prolongs my makeup especially in the places i get very oily!
-ELF hydrating under eye primer is the perfect base for any concealer. I love the consistency of the product and the hydration it gives. Since I have dry under eyes, this is the perfect product to help my concealer go on smoothly.
-Rimmel stay matte powder- in the summer, my nose gets INSANELY oily. A few weeks ago, I repurchased this powder because I was out of the one I was using at the time, and I fell in love. The powder is finely milled and goes on beautifully. It is very easy to touch up with and is just a handy product to have around. The only downside is the packaging, but since it is so affordable I can get over that.
-Smashbox Always Sharp waterproof kohl liner in sumatra. I love this liner because it is a nice deep chocolate brown that works beautifully in the water line or smudged out on your lash line. I also love the packaging because it is self sharpening, so you don't have to have a sharpener on hand!
-Benefit Hoola Bronzer is my holy grail bronzer. Hoola is a cult favorite and one day I wandered into a benefit store and bought a travel sized bronzer. Hoola bronzer is neutral toned which makes it perfect for anyone of fair to light/medium complexion. I use this as both a bronzer and a contour shade and love it for both!

Those were all my favorites from this month. All of these products are in my "top drawer" and are used every single day! If you try any of them be sure to let us know how you enjoyed the product and if you have any recommendations leave them in the comments below and I will be sure to check them out.

Thank you guys for reading :)
Have a great rest of your day/night

XOXO,
Shadow
