Another month of faves! June was very heavy in makeup products and I am trying to add in more hair/ skin care to the mix. Open to suggestions! I really want to try some drunk elephant products and this new watermelon face mask that seems to be super popular on all socials.
Too Faced natural love palette. If you love neutrals this is your palette! I only wear neutrals when it comes to my makeup and this palette has everything you would need and then some! It comes with matte, shimmer and glitter shades. The only thing I would appreciate would have been a few more matte transition shades but honestly I still have lots of choices to work with!
The Urban Decay Naked Heat has made warm tone, fiery red and bronze shades super popular and while I would love to try the look, I don’t think I need a whole palette for the look because it is not something I will reach for often. The last row of shadows has all the shades you need to create that fiery, heat sort of look! I tried it out one night and was really impressed with the results.
As for a smokey eye, the last 2 columns has you covered. And the first 4 columns are good choices for day to day, neutral eye looks. This is a great one stop and done palette!
Makeup Revolution highlighter in golden goddess. I’ve talked about this highlight before and I continue to be impressed with it. Its a golden- yellow sort of color in a very smooth powder formulation that looks so beautiful and glowy on the skin. This also looks great on shoulders and collar bones. For $7 you cannot go wrong and I’m on the look out for more to try!
Rimmel Stay Matte. I love this pressed powder and I haven’t reached for my Laura Mercier powder since I got this. It’s super easy and mess free. It’s matte and is said to last up to 5 hours. It honestly won’t keep you matte all day… maybe if you do touch ups through out the day but I like dewy makeup so I don’t mind that it doesn’t keep my face matte. It does keep my concealer in tact which is what I like about this. It’s not cakey and it doesn’t flash back. This is a great drug store find! I use the shade translucent but it also comes in colors too.
Mac strobe cream. I’m obsessed with this stuff. I use it to prime my face every time I do my makeup. I love the glow/ sheen it gives my skin without making me too shiny or greasy. It sort of melts into your skin and it feels like you have nothing on which I am alllllll for. It comes in other shades and I want to try the gold-toned one when I finish this one.
Voluminous Lash paradise. I talk about this mascara ALL the time! After using it for about a month I can say it is very similar to the Too Faced as they both lengthen and give volume. The Too Faced gets a little clumpy, so does this one honestly but I don’t mind it. This keeps my lashes curled ALL day and adds a lengthening and feathery effect and until I find another mascara that will keep my lashes curled ALL day, this will always be my favorite.
Glossier Cake balm dot com. I love this lip bomb! It smells amaze and its been awesome for my lips which always get rashes from trying different lip products. It has a hint of shimmer and its perfect for day-to-day wear. I want to buy more so I always have them around me!
Jeffree Star Lip ammunition in celebrity skin. This is my perfect nude shade. Its a cool tone pink/mauve nude color and I’m surprised I love it so much because I always go for warm tones. This just matches me so well and if you’re looking for a new nude shade I totally recommend this. I like to wear this with the bomb dot com layered over it for a more glossy look!
