July 2014 Favorites~!


hello hello!

I can not believe July is over and August is already upon us. Eep~ in 2 weeks or so, I'll be back at my second home!! Seriously...my R.A friends have been posting pictures of the incoming freshies this year and I'm just super excited to meet them all and start my 2nd year in college! 

But enough of that, let's just go into my July Favorites for 2014!  It's quite short, only 3 products, but really awesome products nonetheless!


Urban Decay Naked Palette

I had this palette for...quite a while and I absolutely love it. I rediscovered it this month and found my new favorite Everyday Makeup with this palette. I mainly use the 4 shades; Sidecar for an all over lid color, Smog for the outer-v of my lid for more dimension, Darkhorse for my lower lash line, and the holy-grail Half Baked for highlighting my inner eye corner. I love the combination of those 4 gold-infused eyeshadow colors and I think it makes a perfect everyday gold smokey eye. I used those 4 eyeshadows for the entire month in July and I will definitely use the shades again this month in August!


Rimmel London Match Perfection Skin Tone Adapting Concealer in 245 Light

I purchased this concealer on whim about 2 months ago after I heard decent reviews of this little guy. But honestly when I first used it in the beginning of June I hated it because it was too pink-toned on my yellow-toned skin. However, I picked it up again this month when I was running late and had to cover my dark circles quickly. It worked like magic and after blending it thoroughly, it adapted to my skin tone nicely. If you look closely of course, you can see that it's slightly an off color, but it covers up my imperfections nicely and doesn't cake on me throughout the day


Palladio Oil-Absorbing Rice Powder in Warm Beige

I stole this powder from my sister in the beginning of this month. It's a pretty decent powder for me~ Rice, as many probably know, is a great natural skincare remedy that helps the skin look and feel smoother and clearer. This powder does give me that beautiful airbrush finish that I like and it controls my oil for a good 5 hours before my nose gets oily once more. It hasn't caked on me yet and is lightweight. The only bad thing for me about this product is it's super messy to apply


So that's all my July Favorites for 2014! Thank you guys! And I'll see you soon with an impromptu Hyuna Red Inspired Makeup Tutorial!! <3

Until next time, 



And please join my giveaway if you haven't already!

  1. I've heard so much about the Naked palettes but never bought one of them because of the price and my lack of eye makeup skills. lol The Rimmel concealer looks interesting, I think this is the first time I've seen that kind of applicator~ If it's pink-toned though I think I'll pass. >__< I hate it when powders are messy, and knowing me I'd definitely end up getting the powder all over the place OTL

    I'll be looking forward to your Hyuna inspired makeup tutorial! Your Luna one was absolutely gorgeous ^^

    1. You really have to try out the Naked Palette! :3 When I first bought it, I was a noob and rarely touched it. But after taking the plunge and just exploring the wonders of makeup, I ended up making my money's worth after 2 years with it xD Thanks Gloria~ ;)

  2. The Naked palette is something I've always wanted but living in Australia makes it hard for me to get my hands on, Someday though I'll get my hands on them ~ as for your other two favourites, I've both never heard of but they do seem interesting :) Great post by the way :)

  5. I heard so much about the Naked Palette but I can't get it here, there's no sephora or urban decay store here T.T I never heard of the other products too but they all sound so amazing especially the powder >.<;; I just wish I could get them here, I can't even get Rimmel makeup here T T But still, thanks for this post and good luck on your second year in college, Aimee !!! ♥

    1. Thank you Mindy~ And try buying it online!! The Naked Palette is truly worth your money. If not, wait till the holiday season where there's lots of sales going on and free shipping internationally! There's plenty of online stores that sell the palette. And you should also try the Lorac Pro Palette as well. :3

  11. The Naked palette is so beautiful *__* I'm still not sure which one I want to buy but I'm leaning towards Naked 1!

    1. I absolutely LOVE the Naked Palette 1! I think it fits my skin tone really well and I'm slightly tan with a yellow undertone. >.< I think the Naked 2 would work well with people with slightly pink undertone skin, while the Naked 3 would work well with any skin color with its rose-hued eyeshadows~ :3 I think it's worth it's money though! You could also try the Lorac Pro palettes as well!

    1. Thanks Kiyomi~ :D I love love love the Naked Palette~~ But if you're too scared to take the plunge and spend $54 {yeesh >.<} I recommend trying some drugstore brands such as NYX and Wet n Wild. ^_^
