Current Beauty Favorites: June 2013

summer beauty favorites
Hey ladies! Just wanted to do a quick post to share my current beauty favorites for the month of June.  Check out all the details below!

summer beauty favorite lip products

If I had to list my top 3 go-to beauty products of all time, I guarantee you that the EOS lip balms would definitely be in the mix.  I find them all over my room, in my purse, and my hubby & kids even use them (as I buy them for those guys too).  They are so moisturizing and have a nice variety of flavors. This one in particular I've been using most often recently is the EOS Lip Balm in Pomegranate Raspberry as my favorite, Summer Fruit, has run out :( All in all, I love it and will probably buy another one when it runs out.

For some reason, I've been wearing more glosses than lipsticks lately.  It could be because applying them takes much less time and effort and do not require a lipliner.  Or it could be because I can always count on my purse to be housing a bunch of lip glosses as opposed to lipsticks.  My MAC lipglasses are my favorites because of the light vanilla scent they have, with the exception of the plushglass.  I've most often been 
reaching for my plushglass in the I heart U from the Quite Cute Collection, and lipglasses Stay Sweet (from the Archie's Girls Collection), Strange Potion (from the Venomous Villains Collection) and Viva Glam Cyndi.  As you can see, I'm a sucker for MAC's limited edition collections. Le sigh.

When I do wear lipstick, I grab for Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in 24 Carrot Gold & MAC Lipstick in Heroine most often.  I didn't own a matte orange lipstick so I was ecstatic when I found one for only $2.99!  In fact, I'll be sharing a look with this lipstick soon so keep your eyes peeled! And if you read my FOTD post featuring MAC Lipstick in Heroine last month, you already know how much I am in love with that shade.  

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the NYX lipliners. They are super affordable and they have the largest variety of shades I've ever seen!  NYX lipliner in Bloom is my most recent lipliner purchase and I find myself using it each time I rock a pink lip.

With the summer weather here, I haven't been wanting to wear anything heavy on my face.  But the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark has become one of my staple products over the last few months.  If I'm not setting my foundation with this product, I am lightly dusting a bit of it on my face to control shine throughout the day and even out my skin tone.

If you've been around here for a while, you know that the e.l.f. studio blushes are among my favorite beauty products.  These blushes are very affordable and (with the exception of a few) have a quality very comparable to NARS blushes.  The two I've been grabbing for a lot lately are Fuchsia Fusion and Twinkle Pink.  They go well with the pink lips I'm known to wear quite often.

Nothing gives my face a bronzing glow like NARS Blush in Taj Mahal. It's one of the first NARS blushes I've ever purchased and grabbing it up was like love at first sight.  Using a light flush of blush on the cheekbones gives a beautiful glow perfect for summertime, so I'll probably be using it a lot this season.

And lastly, but certainly not least, are the products I've been using on my brows lately.  It's been a long road, but I've finally grown back my brows!  Of course, they aren't as dark and defined as I would like for them to be, but with the help of MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked and or Milani's Brow Tint Pen in Dark Brown, my brows are looking better and much more natural.  I tried these products per the suggestion of my fellow beauty loving MUA whose fb fan page I stalk friend Kemba and have yet to be disappointed.  What I love most about the MAC Eyebrow Pencil is that it's waterproof, a must for summer wear.  I love that the Milani Brow Tint Pen has a felt-tip and with small strokes, does a great job of mimicking the appearance of hairs.  Thanks, Kemba! You're a lifesaver, hunni!
