Hello lovlies! I’ve been mia for almost a week and I feel like I missed so much. I come back and I see wordpress has done some upgrading lol . But most of all I missed all of you. I’ve been dealing with some personal things and was in no mood to post but I am back now!
I haven’t done a favourites post in a very long time. I actually enjoy reading these kind of posts because I like to see what other people are using so that I can try it too or not.. A lot of these I have done reviews on actually but here we go!
Here is my short list for the month of June.
1. Maybelline Master Hi-lighting Blush (Nude)
I absolutely love this. I would describe it as an illuminating bronzer. I’ve been eyeing this in the drug store for months now but it is bloody expensive. I came across it at Winners department store for 5.99 which is about three times less than what they have it for in drug stores!
Anyway, they have different shades but I got the one in Nude.
– beautiful neutral shade with a touch of gold
– blends well and stays on long
– illuminates your face
– gentle shimmer
I’ve heard a lot of people say it’s very shimmery but I don’t find that at all. I think it has a really subtle shimmer to it which is perfect for summertime.
2. Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick in Warm Nude
This is another product that I was looking at together with the hi-lighting powder above and it was also pricey at the drug store but again at Winners it was 5.99 which is a great deal. There are also a variety of shades but the one I picked up is in Warm Nude.
– creamy texture
– glides on smoothly
– gentle and subtle colour
– soft glow
The only thing I don’t like is that it is not pigmented enough and due to the humidity we’ve been having it doesn’t last long at all.
3. MAC Asian Flower Sheen Supreme Lipstick
I purchased this a few weeks ago and I am in absolute love with this lipstick.
It is the most beautiful purple/lilac shade.
And the texture? I have never felt anything like it. It’s so creamy and soft, I feel that it’s melting as I am applying it!
I have another sheen supreme lipstick by MAC (nude shade) and I love that one as well but I don’t know what it is about this lipstick. It is just gorgeous. It looks even nicer on the lips than in the tube.
4. Forever 21 Velvet Lipgloss in Red
I picked up a nude lip gloss from Forever 21 and I was not impressed. It was clear and not nude and it tasted extremely bitter. It was not the Velvet collection however. I am impressed with all the other Forever 21 cosmetics I have tried so I decided to give this lip gloss a try. I was so surprised at how pigmented this lip gloss is! I was not expecting it at all. I thought it would’ve been more clear with a red tint (no testers)
– very pigmented
– wet glossy look
– last long
– no scent or taste
– gorgeous rich red shade
5. Dove Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash
I normally use body washes from Bath and Body Works but I was roaming around a local drug store and they had Dove products on sale which I actually like Dove beauty bars so I decided to try this one. I ran out of my body exfoliator and in the summer I like to use it regularly.
This body wash smells HEAVENLY! It is so fresh, clean and crisp. The texture is very creamy and the exfoliating beads are gentle indeed but they do the job.
It leaves your skin very soft, that you really don’t even need to lotion after! (But you should 🙂
6. Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia perfume
This is my fragrance of the summer! I fell in love with this perfume before I even knew what it was lol. I walked by the counter and something just wooshed me in my face.
I can’t say enough good things about it.
It’s fresh and cool, hint of citrus and hint of jasmine. It’s just perfection. It’s light and not overbearing so for those hot humid days it won’t be too much for you or for the people around you!
7. Jasmine by Michael Kors
8. Yellow Polka Dot Bikini – China Glaze
I love neon nail polishes period. I would wear them all year round and sometimes I do in the winter although it does look a little silly. Anyway this month I have barely made any nail posts which I do on the regular usually and that’s because I am obsessed with this gorgeous neon yellow shade and this is all I wear ! lol
It is very streaky however and you do need quite a few coats but the final product is worth it. For me anyway 🙂
I can’t wait to see what you guys used last month!
Good to be back:)
