Makeup and Beauty Blog Retro Roundup: Saying Bye to July

Published in: Just For Fun

It may still be summer, but at makeup counters everywhere, autumn leaves are starting to fall.


August brings even more fall makeup, and it’s time to say one last goodbye to July. Here were some of my favorite posts of the month. 🙂

      Hi Hafsa,

      YAY! I am happy to help. I hope that the color works out for you… and if it doesn’t then you can always return it, right? That’s one great thing about Sephora.

    Hi, I’ve been ur subscriber recently and i noticed that u hav lots of high ended makeups (like Chanel, MAC, etc). Do you have any recommendations for a cheaper but with quality makeup, cuz im just a student n i dont want to spend so much money on cosmetics yet. I know there are NYX, Covergirl, Loreal, Maybelline, etc, is there other that I need to discover? thanks

      Hi Diana Van,

      Sure! There’s lots of great drugstore stuff out there. I like Sally Hansen for lip glosses and Sonia Kashuk for eyeshadows and brushes. As for mascaras, MAX Factor 2000 Calorie is pretty good (but they’ll be leaving the US soon) and so is L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon black. For blushes I like Neutrogena’s Soft Color. For pencils, try Prestige or Rimmel. 🙂

    Hey Karen, I know you’ve been all caught up with True Blood lately so I gotta ask if you’re gonna try the Twilight makeup when it comes out. It seems so silly but kinda fun too. I’d love to see a review of some of that! 😉

    I can’t believe it’s August already! July went by in a flash; good thing too, it’s freezing down here!
    I’m loving all the fall goodies that are popping up, can’t wait for the reviews 😀

    You look good in every photo. What is your secret???
    I hate to see July pass because August means that Fall is peeking over our shoulders and I hate winter. I agree with you on all of the items. I passed those Chanel eye gels right on by and bought the bluey/greeney quad. I knew that the gels would do nothing for me. Now the Lancome Indigo collection has real personality and I am lemming that blue sparkly mascara even though I will 56 at the end of the month. While wearing that I should call myself “The Dancing Queen” like the Abba song. I love those songs. I am not in Mac makeup because, let’s face it, it’s for you young ‘uns. But my disinterest in that line caused me to miss a fragrance. I did not even know that they made fragrances. One night while surfing the net, I found out about a sublime scent called Naked Honey. I had read that it smells like the Honey Locust trees, one of which I have in my front yard and many at the family home where I grew up. Now Naked Honey is all gone. I am intrigued but cannot get it because it is all sold out. How did I miss that one?? I think Tabs is having sexy time and is not really lost. He’ll be home in time for din-din. Louise
