Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom July 2013 Favorites!

I'm going to be showcasing my favorite products I used in July. I'll be specific at each entry whether or not I purchased myself, or it was sent to me from a company.

The color looks so off in that photo...ah well, we don't need it for exact clarity or anything! I have a lot of "staple" favorites for July, meaning that some of these products are my go-to products every month.

On the "makeup" end of things, let's start with...

Reviva Labs Makeup Primer: My go-to face primer! Helps my makeup stay in its place all day without making my face too oily or, in the opposite direction, too dry. It's so silky smooth going on. I received this from Reviva Labs PR, and haven't used another face primer since :)

NYC In A New York Color Minute Nail Polish in Grand Central Station: This isn't technically a quick dry polish, but I've been using it as such! One of my favorites, and it's dries so quickly! Not to mention, it's super cheap ($1), and can be found at any store that carries NYC cosmetics.

Sweet Libertine Captain Tightpants eye pigment: *sigh* How I miss Firefly. When I heard a cosmetics company was releasing some Firefly-inspired makeup, I got all excited! I purchased four from this collection, and I keep reaching for this one over and over. It's versatile!

NYX matte lipstick in Bloody Mary: I knew I had to own this polish for the name as soon as I saw it in Ulta. But what I wasn't prepared for was how attached I would be to it! I wear it A LOT...and that's coming from someone who rarely wore red lipstick before being a beauty blogger! It definitely helped me come out of my shell.

LA Colors Jumbo Eye Pencil in Sea Shells: I am so low-key with my makeup most days, so I slap some of this on and go with a colored liner haha Boring, but effective! :) I've bought a few of these eye pencils from Dollar General for $1, and I love them all. They are long lasting and are really pigmented.

Avojuice in Cran & Berry: I've never reviewed this, but it is, hands down, my favorite lotion. I always stock up when I get within range of an Ulta. I keep a pump bottle next to my side of the couch, and I keep a mini bottle in my purse. I'm always using it!

Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum: I'll admit that I'd never heard of Carol's Daughter before receiving this product as a Klout perk. However, since I received it, I've used it a lot. I have easy-to-frizz hair, but when I use this serum, my frizz is completely under control - which had especially been good with the humidity we had in July!

Stur Liquid Water Enhancer in Proudly Tea & Lemon: Ahhh Stur. My favorite new thing. I've made a pledge to drink more water, and Stur is certainly helping me. Proudly Tea & Lemon is my absolute favorite flavor, so I will need to stock up on it!

There ya go! See any products you love? What are your favorites this month?
