Monthly Favorites: July 2014

Hello Everyone! 

 My apologies for the missing pictures. My pictures were accidentally deleted off my blog. Please Refer to my Instagram account miss_pilar to view the pictures (or some of the pictures) that were deleted.  

So I finally got around to posting a monthly favorites list. I realized that this is only my third one for the year lol 

Bath and Body


-Dial Triple Moisture Body Wash with jojaba and mango butters
-Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

I really like both these products because they keep my skin moisturized and smell wonderful! (Even though this Cetaphil cream doesn't really have a scent lol)



- BH Cosmetics Forever Glam Palette
- BH Cosmetics Forever Nude Palette
- MAC Pure Heroine (Amplified Cream)
- MAC Crème Cup (Creamsheen)
- MAC Paint Pot in Painterly

I'm not going to go into details about this cluster of makeup products since I have upcoming FOTD's and reviews :) Just because I haven't worn much makeup since it's been so hot doesn't mean I can't create FOTD looks lol. I will say this all, these items are amazing products!


- NYX Butter Gloss (Apple Strudel)
- Victoria's Secret Bronzer in Goddess
(F16 Medium)


I'm so glad I finally tried those Butter Glosses! I only have one but I will purchase more! Apple Strudel is a pink color that goes great on top of MAC's Pink Nouveau or I can wear it alone. The Vanilla scent was a little strong to me at first, but the scent mellows out so it wasn't that strong once I applied it on my lips.


Omgosh how gorgeous is this packaging for the VS bronzer? It's so it's pretty!  I really don't wear much bronzer, but I wanted to try something new. For the few days it wasn't scorching outside I wore this bronzer and it gives my complexion a nice Summer glow. I really like that this bronzer isn't overly glittery and doesn't take much powder to achieve a natural looking Summer glow.

- BH Cosmetics Eye and Makeup Remover


Where has this been all my life?! Seriously this has to be the best eye makeup remover I've ever owned. I only have to use a small amount of this product on a cotton ball and eye makeup came off with at most two swipes for each eye lid. Another great thing about this remover is you can use it on your lips too. This remover is unscented so you if you use it on your lips it doesn't have any kind of chemical smell. I'm glad I read those reviews on BH Cosmetics website. I swear this remover has to be one of BH Cosmetics best kept secrets!

Sunglasses from Giant Vintage



-Corfu Black Cat Eye
-Corfu Cream Cat Eye
- unsure of the last pair's name

Remember when I was sent sunglasses to review for Giant Vintage Sunglasses? Well they sent me the two pair I wanted once they were back in stock (the cream and black cat eye sunglasses). I love these sunglasses, they're so stylish! That was so kind of their company!  I really like the oversized sunglasses as well!

I want to try NYX butter glosses! They sound delightful Pilar. I've used Cetaphil cleanser but never their other products. So that's good to know.

Thank you Kim! I really like the NYX butter gloss I have! You should give their other products! They're really good for your skin!

Pilar said...

Thank you Jackie! I think the facial wash is one of their more popular products. If you purchase the moisturizer I hope you like it!

Pilar said...

This is my go to facial cleanser also as well as the moisturizer!

Pilar said...

Thank you! I'm glad I tired the NYX butter gloss too! I can't wait to purchase a few more of them! I have to admit the packaging was one of the reasons I bought the VS bronzer lol, but it's a good bronzer though! Those BH are so gorgeous I have a few FOTD post coming up!

Pilar said...

Thank you! I've been really liking cat eye sunglasses lately! The remover from BH is simply amazing! I didn't know about it until I read the reviews. You're welcome for the remover tip!

Pilar said...

Thank you! The butter gloss is amazing!

Pilar said...

Thank you! Créme Cup is such a pretty pinkish nude color!

Pilar said...

Thank you! I didn't realize they had a makeup remover either! I just happen to come across it and read the reviews! I think it's still on sale, I paid $2.95 for it! Regular price I believe is $8.00

Unknown said...

A few of these are favorites of mine too! The Mac Paint Pot in Painterly is amazing and I love the NXY Butter Glosses. Nothing beats Cetaphil when it comes to moisturizing. I use on my son's eczema.

Vett Vandiver said...

great review, thanks so much for sharing!!

Pilar said...

I think I found a perfect eyeshadow base with MAC's Paint Pot in Painterly! I like how it also can be worn as a cream eyeshadow! I have slight eczema on my elbows and it works great for keeping them moisturized!

Pilar said...

Thanks and you're welcome!

Kristen Alpert said...

Love the sunglasses, especially the last ones. Don't know if I could pull off there white ones though.

Pilar said...

Thank you! The cream sunglasses are so pretty! If you don't think that you could pull them off, they're are so many styles to choose from. I think the cat eyes would great on you!
