As head into July you might be tightening up your belt and putting yourself on a budget so you can save some money for vacation, concerts, or other Summer fun. These six fabulous beauty buys won’t break the back not to mention they are fun pick ups for the warmer weather ahead.

Take a peek!

Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelรฉe $9
This coconut water-infused cheek gel will give you a pop of lightweight color on your cheeks and won’t break your bank while doing it for under ten bucks.

Mara Hoffman for Sephora Collection Kaleidescape Tinted Lip Balm $11 (Review & Swatches)
This is literally one of my favorite must have my lips but better lip colors. I have about six backups. The soft, creamy formula is hydrating, slick, and the color is a perfect natural rose.

Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Extreme & Vanille Abricot Travel Layering Duo $32
We all know Comptoir Sud Pacifique isn’t the cheapest niche fragrance collection out there. This cute set gets you two travel sprays in luscious Vanilla Extreme for those that love the creamy, dreamy scent of vanilla plus Vanilla Apricot which is a gorgeous apricot swirled with creamy vanilla. Wear them alone or combine them to create a unique fragrance experience.

Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray $18
Urban Decay has repackaged their setting sprays which means you can snag Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray at a deal for $18 on the larger 4 oz bottle. This spray will de-grease skin and keep it shine and oil-free in the hot Summer sun.

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself: Eye & Cheek Palette $30 (Review & Swatches)
Everyone is pretty amazed that so soon after it’s launch the Make Believe in Yourself Palette already hit the sale bin! But hey, that means you can score the latest Summer trend of metallic eyes on the cheap!

Kat Von D Rock Candy Studded Kiss Lipstick Set $30
Going bold, vibrant, and funky with your lips this season? You can do all three with this six piece selection of Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipsticks in shades like Ziggy a hot neon pink and Roxy a bright purple grape.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I really like the Kat Von D Rock Candy collection. Great colours for all year round.

  • Preethi

    I read your review on the Mara Hoffman tinted lip balm and love the color (I cannot resist a pinky brown color)! I followed the link to Sephora and a common complaint seemed to be that the lipstick breaks off too easily….Did you have any issues with that? TIA!

    • Isabella Muse

      Don’t store in your purse ๐Ÿ˜€ Aside from that I’ve been good with it but it is a very very melty lipstick!

    • Emily

      No issues with mine, though I do remain mindful of how I store it. It is a lovely color and texture.

    • Dora

      I bought this on your recommendation and now have two backups! (Which honestly is something I never do — it is the perfect MLBB shade for me and also just feels really nice.) I do think the packaging is crap but am putting up with it because I really like it. I do carry mine — because if I like something I just need to bring it with me, I don’t usually even bother to put lipstick on until I’m out the door — but am careful not to roll it all the way up (so it doesn’t break). For $11, it’s a great buy!

    Comptoir Sud, yes! But I like the men’s/unisex rather than the gourmands. And the only one you usually see is aqua motu. Great for summer. They have others that can be tres difficile to source. Wish Sephora had others.
