June 2016 Favorites

For some reason I’ve gotten away from doing monthly favorites and I want to get back!

Clinique Long Last Lipstick in All Heart — $17.00

 

This is a red coral and it has been living in my purse for the past month.  It feels very soft and smooth and it wears really well!

Lush Tea Tree Water Toner– $22.95

This is a good to for summer and I forgot how much I loved it! ¬†I like to mist this on my face in the morning before I put on my makeup and sometimes throughout the day too. ¬†It is not a makeup extending or setting spray but ¬†I don’t find that it messes up my make up if I spray it on top.

Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm– $12.00

First off this smells amazing! It has a fresh citrus scent and is very thick in texture.  I had neglected to exfoliate my lips for a few weeks and my skin was more dry due to my acne medications and my lips were looking rough!  I used this at night and after 3 nights my lips were in great shape!

Makeup Geek Blush in Spell BoundР$10.00 

This is the old formula but I still love it! ¬†The color is a salmon pink and finish is matte. The pigmentation is great for these blushes and you can’t beat the price.

benefit Erase Paste Brightening Concealer in Fair– $26.00

I have almost hit pan on this jar!  I like the consistency of this concealer as it is thick (so it has good coverage) but it is also very creamy and easy to blend.  I do have to make sure I set it with a powder but it lasts all day and does a great job of covering up the darkness under and in the corner of my eyes.

Soap and Glory  The Scrub of Your LifeР$12.00 

This is a good scrub if you are looking for something that isn’t too harsh. ¬†The scent is light and a combination of floral and citrus. ¬†You can pick this up in the US at Ulta!

Marc Jacobs Dot Perfume–$96.00¬†

I think I only wore this scent for a solid week in June.  It has a nice combination of floral and fruity that I love.  The notes are Red Berries, Dragonfruit, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Coconut Water, Orange Blossom, Vanilla, Driftwood, Musk.  On me I feel like the musk, Jasmine and Vanilla really come through and it has a nice lingering scent.

BH Cosmetics Pride+Prejudice+Zombies Eye and Cheek Palette– $12.50

This has been my go to this past month. The variety of colors and finish is awesome and the staying power is pretty good as well. ¬†The formula can be a little powdery and some of the colors do take a bit to build up but you can’t be the price! I also really love the shimmer blush that is in the palette. ¬†It reminds me a bit of Orgasm by Nars… I’m now going to do a swatch test lol ūüôā

LOC One & Done Shadow Sticks in On Point and Day TripР$10.00 Each 

I like to use these shadow sticks as a base for other eye shadows.  I find that for me they are not enough on their own.  I do have oily eyelids so I find that all day wear with these will leave me with some creasing or they will just straight up disappear from my eyelid. But, they do make a great base and they work well with the BH Cosmetics palette as some of the shadows are not as pigmented and the base color really helps to bring out the best in the shadow stick and the powder eye shadow set the cream.  All in all its a win win!

Lara Says:: Well as you can see I really don’t like this product at all! ¬†This is my go to for travel as it has a bronzer (lightest brown shade), contour (deepest brown shade), under-eye setting powder (the yellow powder) ¬†and a highlight (white powder). ¬†This thing is $6 which comes out to $1.50 per pan, I mean you can’t beat that!!! ¬†I’ve already bought another one and it is waiting in the wings for me to use the rest of this baby up!
