July / August Favorites 2015

So it’s officially summer! I’m really excited about things that are happening this summer, and just about life in general! I have a feeling the next couple of months are going to be so awesome!

Now that it’s July, I thought I’d share some of the makeup/music/trends I’ve been loving this month! (And I will be adding more to the list through August as well)



For foundation, I still love love love the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream with SPF 30… but I’ve been trying not to wear foundation often because my skin has been breaking out like crazy over the past few weeks. However, I learned the hard way that I still have to wear some sort of SPF on my face, so I’ve been loving the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch sunscreen, which has an SPF of 70 (even though the website says SPF 85).

I’m still loving the Rimmel Match Perfection concealer and the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder.


The Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (in the shade Perversion) is still my go-to eyeliner for the summer. It’s something that I can apply with or without an angled eyeliner brush, depending on how dramatic I want my eye makeup to be.

The classic, Maybelline Great Lash mascara, is something I always return to during the summer months if I want a more natural makeup look.


This is going to be a very short list, as there are certain lip colors that I previously featured in last month’s Favorites post.

CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm (in the shade Scarlet Twist)

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain (in the shade Sweetheart Valentine)

eos Lip Balm in Summer Fruit.

Nail Polish:

I’m still loving the bright-colored nail polish for the summer. Some of my favorites include:

E.L.F. Beach Party Nail Polish set (specifically the colors: Coral Dream and Smokin’ Hot)

Serial Shopper by Essie


I’ve been a fan of OGX Beauty for a long time, so it’s no surprise that they made it onto my favorites list again! 🙂

OGX Vitamin B5 Shampoo and Conditioner

TV Shows:

A lot of TV shows have ended for the summer, which means I don’t really have any favorites this month. I’m looking forward to the October returns of The Voice, Finding Carter, and Kingdom.


Minions (the commercials don’t do this one justice; I’m seeing it in theatres tomorrow (July 14th), and oh my gosh, it looks adorable!)



To Kill A Mockingbird (Harper Lee)


Summer Rain – Matthew Morrison

Gone – Kelly Clarkson (not the same as “Already Gone“; this is a track from her 2004 sophomore album, Breakaway)

In The End – Nick Jonas & The Administration

Should’ve Been Us – Tori Kelly (along with the rest of her debut album. The girl can SING!!!)

S.O.S.” and “Rest Of Me” – Lauryn Taylor Bach

Flashlight” – Bethany Mota

Let You Drive” – Manafest






Caramel Frappucino from Starbucks

Oreo Iced Capp from Tim Hortons

White Mocha from Starbucks

Minion Tic-Tacs (Passionfruit flavor… they’re yellow, and come in a container with a picture of the Minions. SO CUTE!!!)


Tank tops

Graphic t-shirts (especially if they have band logos on them, like Guns N’ Roses. Very rock-and-roll 😉 )

Distressed jeans/shorts

One cross necklace 🙂 (I actually got a cross necklace for my birthday a couple months ago, and I wear it every day)

Cute dresses (especially if they’re floral print)



That’s everything I’ve been loving this month, and like always, I would like to hear what your favorites are! Feel free to leave a comment on here or on Twitter (@officialannamarier and @akidspov). 🙂
