July 2016 Beauty & Fashion Favorites

Beauty
Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan (get it here!)
My only non-hair care product this month is an amazing bronzer. I've been addicted to the Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer for a few years now, but I was sent a deluxe sample of this and have been really loving it. It's the perfect matte shade - not too orange and not too dark. The downsides? Only comes in that one shade (so if it doesn't match your skin tone, you're out of luck), and the full size is massive. Like bigger than the size of my hand massive. Definitely not travel friendly.

Purple Shampoos & Conditioners
So incase you missed the memo, I became part of the Malfoy family in July (aka dyed my hair a platinum balayage), and so I've really be into purple shampoos. I've tried three at different price points and love them all, so I figured I would share them with you.

Oribe Bright Blonde Shampoo (get it here!)
The most expensive of the three, and I would say it's the best but I can't really tell. I'm ridiculously partial to the smell (Oribe's products smell amazing). But I do think that I like my hair the best when I use this.
Drybar Blonde Ale Brightening Shampoo (get it here!)
This is the mid-range priced shampoo and I really enjoy it as well. I know people swear by Drybar products, and this one doesn't disappoint. The key to a purple shampoo is how dark it is, and this one is a pretty dark purple.

Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo (get it here!) 
This is the most popular purple shampoo (and one used at a lot of salons), and definitely the cheapest of the three (you can get it on Amazon for under $10). Plus, because you don't need to use purple shampoo every time you wash your hair, a bottle will last you a while.

LUSH Sugar Daddy-O Solid Purple Conditioner (get it here!)
So now that my hair is a touch more damaged because of the color, I've been using conditioner more frequently. LUSH is known for its shampoo bars, so I was intrigued when I saw this purple conditioner bar. I really like it; it works well as a conditioner and is a great addition to my purple routine.

Fashion
Zella 'Lean Routine' Tank (get it here!)
One of the only new things I picked up at Nordstrom's anniversary sale. For whatever reason, the sale was lacking this year, but I really enjoyed this new Zella tank (so much that I got three
