July Favorites

July 31, 2017

Redken Wind Blow Hairspray
–The hair stylist used this when I got a blow out earlier this month and she told me I was going to love it and she was right!
–It gives just enough hold without leaving your hair feeling weighed down or crunchy.

Rosebud Salve in a Tub
–I love this stuff, but I only have the kind that comes in a tin and sometimes it’s too messy.
–It smells good and is hydrating

Hourglass Lip Stylo in Leader
–Every year for my birthday I treat myself to a fancy lipstick. I couldn’t decide between this one and the Tom Ford. I initially went the Tom Ford, but I had a return at Sephora and got this one too.
–I love the color and formula and the packaging is to die for. However, you’re paying for the packaging and the brand, the formula is nothing groundbreaking.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty
–This was part of the Sephora birthday gift this year and I am obsessed.
–So many people love bronzer, but I’m a blush girl. I feel like I look dead without it.
–The color is great and it lasts all.day.long.

Dog BFF Bracelet
–I got this for my birthday and I wear it every single day.
–Y’all know Windsor is my best friend and I love this sweet little reminder.
–My friend that gave me this bracelet isn’t a dog person (shocking, I know), but she secretly loves Winds.

NYX Unicorn Fur
Lindsay posted about this lipstick and I knew right then I had to have it.
–I haven’t tried this formula from NYX, but it’s great and the color is so fun.
–I’m wearing it in this pic.

Tom Ford Jared
–Y’all, I can’t believe I spent $36 on this tiny tube of lipstick. It was my birthday treat to myself and Tom Ford has been on my list to try for a long time.
–The formula and color are great, but the packaging is SO cheap. All of my other expensive lipsticks are quite heavy and the packaging is part of the price. This is just cheap plastic, no different from Maybelline or anything else at the drugstore.
–I do like it and I’m going to use, but I probably will not be purchasing any other Tom Ford lipsticks.
–Usually with high end items, you’re paying for the name and the packaging. Here, you’re paying for the name alone.

I’ve never related to something more.  (source)

In case you don’t see enough of Windsor on my Instagram, here his is adorable self again. 

I don’t remember which Instagram page I found this one, obvi the photo is not mine, but that’s not what we’re here to discuss. We’re here to discuss how fabulous my BFF looked on their recent tour. I was constantly stalking Instagram looking for new pics during that week. The whole family looked fantastic and they made my heart burst multiple times. They’re just perfect and I love them.

What have you been loving this month?

    Good to know about the TF lipstick. I haven’t heard anything too great about them. I need that blush!!

      It’s the perfect shade and I was so impressed by the staying power.

    Windsor is so darn adorable!

      Thank you! I certainly think so 😉

    I’ve heard before that Tom Ford lipsticks are nothing special and so expensive! But sometimes it’s nice to treat yourself! I love that you do so for your birthday every year! I got that Tarte blush for the Sephora birthday gift too and I really love it!

    • loubsandlips August 1, 2017 at 12:28 am

      I got the idea from a fellow blogger and I love it too. Each shade holds a special memory of that day!

    Great picks! 🙂 Is that the matte nyx lipsticks? I don’t have many of those.
    And thanks for letting us know about the Tom Ford lippies. That’s such a bummer!

    • loubsandlips August 1, 2017 at 12:25 am

      Yes it the matte NYX. I hadn’t tried the formula prior to this shade, but I really liked it. I wasn’t drying at all. I was so sad about the Tom Ford lippie, but lesson learned!

    Such a great round up, I can’t believe the Tom Ford packaging was such junk, that’s a huge bummer! I’m intrigued by the blush, that looks like a really perfect everyday shade. And the Princess is just killing it, per usual. I would love her wardrobe (#1 and #9 are amazing!)

      I was so shocked when I opened the Tom Ford lipstick. I was just expecting so much more! I’m new to Tarte blushes, but now I want all the shades. They usually do a blush palette at Christmas and I’m definitely getting it this year. They stay on all day and most blushes don’t last one me. I want her wardrobe too and to be her BFF haha (#delusional)
