August/Summer Favorites

 Hola dolls! Here's my favorite products for August and
mostly for the summer.  I had to edit some out, because it was getting too big! Please let me know what your favorites have been for August and what I need to try! xoxo Keep It Glam! -Taj

I love coloring my hair and this new
foam color by John Frieda was really cool.
It took a little getting used to at first but
most importantly, I loved the rich even color it
gave my hair.
Next is the Argan oil from Sally's Beauty Supply
I LOVE this product. Go immediately and get it!
It smells amaazing and leaves my hair so silky.
I guess it's like moroccan oil, but this is like $6!

 Eucerin Everyday Protection SPF15 Lotion
I've been slathering this on myself all summer. It gives such a nice glow and smells nice, plus it's got spf!

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer
I've loved this for years, but I've been using it a lot lately and I always have it in my kit for makeup jobs. It's a flawless base for makeup.
Kate Somerville SPF30 Sunscreen
My go-to sunscreen. Never makes me breakout.

Keihl's Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment
This is always on my favs lists. It's been one of my holy grail
items that I can't live without. Try it nightly and see the difference ;)

 Clinique Deep Cleansing Emergency Mask
If you've got a party in one day, use this the night before and you're skin will look ten times better.

Queen Helen Oatmeal n' Honey Scrub
The granules are so fine and it smells yummie.

 I love this Boots Gentle Glycolic Peel
I got it at Target and it's such a great deal for revealing a fresh, glowing face.  Takes five minutes!

 Victoria's Secret Supermodel body Spray
Love the sultry smell.

Lierac Huile Sensorielle 
This oil is packed with so many exotic ingredients and smells 
out of this world. I use it on my skin, on my hair, and as a light perfume.
I found it at CVS in the higher end cosmetics section. It will last me forever!

 Laura Mercier Secret Concealer
Super creamy and fab.

Kevin Aucoin the Precision Eye Definer Gel liner in Shimmer
I love, love gel eyeliners and this is super glam.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel eyeliner in Black Ink
It lasts all night and is a true black.

 I'm super picky with black eyeliners and these are killing it: Milani Liquif'eye in Black.  Hands down, the best pencil liner. Creamy, pigmented, true black and long lasting.  Lorac in 02, creamy, black, glam.  Jordana in Onyx. I love that this pencil in $1.99 at Walgreens!!

 Elf Tinted Moisturizer
For $3 this is a steal and it's packed with vitamins.
Covergirl Wetslicks fruit spritzer in Guava, my all time favorite gloss.
L'Oreal LeGloss in Baby Blossom: Sooo pretty alone and over lipsticks. And smells like candy!

 Sonia Kashuk Kabuki Brushes
Super soft, super dense and love the packaging!
Maybelline Fit Me pressed powder. I love this powder it 
has such a nice glow to it.
Elf blush in Fuscia.  It's such a pretty color and it goes well
on any skin tone, it's unexpected and fun.  

Hope you try some of these out and let me know your favs of the month! xx

I want to try a chemical peel sooo badly and omg Im so jealous you got your hands on the TM from Elf! They don't sell ELF products in my city so I have to go down to the states to get it or order it offline! Im glad to hear it's got loads of vitamins!

lorenabr said...

Almost all products are not even on the market here at the end of the planet NZ! I need to get my hands on it online of course!

Katie said...

Id love to try the John Freida - it looks great!

SassyAgapi said...

i've been thinking about trying E.l.f.'s tinted moisturizer, I think soon!

Aggie602 said...

I also use the oatmeal masque it really buff out all the dead stuff, I really want to try that Glyoclic peel now. Monthly faves are some of my favorites things to know and watch, I did a video on mine lol.Ooh and Jordana is my fave black eyeliner for everyday inner rims of eyes.


the clinique cleansing mask and bobbi brown gel eyeliner are also my favourites ; )

Josie said...

cryskay said...

Curves ahead makeup said...

great favorite !!! love all the things you liked !!

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

I also use the Moroccan oil for my unruly hair. lol. My skin care programme is pretty simple. Day/night cream in one, a serum and a self made face mask twice a month.

ChiChi81 said...

All these products are lovely. I am a huge fan of ELF, I'm happy to see it in your dresser. Lately, I've been so into BB Creams, it cut down my make-up regimen significantly, it's amazing.

Not Just A Pretty Dress said...

Yo have such a nice selection of products! I love Laura Mercier for make-up and Kiehl's for body range. I tried the avocado eye cream and it was great. I also think that Creme de Corps by Kiehl's is the best body cream ever.

Today I also wrote a post about beauty products...!


la petite coquine said...

I'm practically drooling over all these yummy products-that avocado eye mask sounds heavenly!

Supergirl said...

Andrea said...

Rachel said...

oh im so glad you like argan oil! i was debating buying it because everyone RAVES about Moroccan oil but i am just way too cheap to buy it. lol so i will definitely do the argan. ok ur a make up pro, maybe you'll know something about this

so over the weekend i forgot my face wash when visiting some fam. i used my soon to be sister-in-laws proactiv cleanser because i couldn't NOT wash my face. bad choice. i have really sensitive skin, and at the time it was fine, but now i have all these tiny bumps on my face! not like pimples, but its just like every pore on my face is raised so it feels bumpy. um dr. taj what is this? lol i have an appt with the dermatologist. this better go away!

fifi said...

The PvdH Journal said...

I see so so many products there that I love (or have used!). The Kiehls eye cream is always a must! Aragon oil is amazing... No7 serum (I jsut use the serum) has done wonders for my forehead lines (i might be 25, but I tend to make the funniest of faces!)... You've just inspired me to do one of these posts! I think I'll give it a shot soon!

Fresh strawberry juice is so yummy and easy to make! I squeeze some oranges and mix them in the blender with lots of strawberries! It has lots of vitamins and is very sweet.

Happy Sunday!

The Fashionable ESQ said...

I am so curious about that oil that you found at CVS! Im def. going to go and look for it. where do you use it?
I'm also super curious about the faux moroccan oil...does it smell as good as the 'real deal?' Also, have you ever used coconut oil? I want to try some b/c I've been reading a lot about it.
Glad I found your blog!
