B.A.D. Girl Beauty: August 2014 Favorites

Beauty Favorites August 2014

I am finally back with my current beauty favorites! I don’t normally wear much makeup in the summer, but when I do I have really been loving these products, especially the lippies! Here are my thoughts on each.

EYES:

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow – Bad To The Bronze, $6.99

One of my fav beauty vloggers Amanda Ensing influenced this purchase and I loveee it. The staying power is insane and I love the beautiful shimmery bronze color. The product is very buildable and it’s exactly what I needed for when I want to glam up my natural/brown makeup look.

NYX Pin-Up Tease Mascara, $5.99

I have super long and unruly lashes especially the ones at the outer corners of my eyelids and the wand on this mascara does exactly as it promises. It’s designed to separate and curl your lashes. The brush size is smaller than I am used to but it works so good. My only complaint is that it is hard to fully take off without the use of makeup remover.

LIPS:

Milani Lipstick- Nude Creme, $5.99

This shade is like my lips but BETTER! The color is a nude/pink shade that delivers true instant coverage with just one swipe and moisturizes with vitamins A & C. Its the perfect shade for me to wear on the daily and I feel like a grown up when I rock it.

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick – Pink Lyric, $4.00

This is probably the best $4 bucks I have spent on a beauty product. I can’t believe such an awesome lippie exists at such a great price. This lipstick is very pigmented, super creamy and has great staying power without bleeding. If you want a beautiful bright pink shade then I highly recommend this one!

FACE:

Murad Oil-Control Mattifier, $39.50

I received a sample size of this product from my girl Kimberlee and I have been using it as a primer under my foundation for oil control and so far so good! It blends nicely even though it feels a bit thick and heavy and definitely keeps me shine free for hours.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer, $30.00

This is another goodie from Kim and it just might be my favorite! It’s a matte bronzer that’s so perfect for contouring and to make it even better it smells like chocolate! It puts me in a good mood every time I use it. The medium/deep color shade is beautiful and perfect for my medium skin tone.

What’s new in your beauty bag?

        Fingers crossed! I’ll keep my eye out. I might have to make an order because I just have to try the jumbo eye pencils and the lippies! x

  2. I love the lip colors you have chosen. I haven’t tried any of these products except for those brands of lipstick. I’m looking forward to my next shopping trip with my sister in a couple of weeks. Maybe I will pick up something then?
    I saw you had commented a post about me being a teacher. I teach high school math. I have 9th graders and teach Algebra 1.
