JUNE FAVORITES

  1. Origins Ginzing Moisturizer
    • This moisturizer has caffeine in it that is supposed to help wake up your skin. I don’t know if it really does, but I do feel refreshed, it doesn’t exacerbate my oil production either. This is my second tub, I love it.
  1. Origins Check and Balances frothy face wash
    • This face wash helps balance oil production without over drying. It’s a bit thick in consistency, so it takes a bit to wash it off and feel like you got it ALL off. I enjoyed it and finished the whole tube!
  2. Origins Ginzing Refreshing eye cream
    • This stuff is amazing! I purchased it in conjunction with the ginzing moisturizer, so it has some of the same properties. This really helps to de-puff my eyes in the morning. Sometimes I REALLY need it, as I suffer from year round allergies and sinus issues now. It also has little flickers of shimmer in it to really brighten up the eye area.
  3. Murad Essential-C Sun Balm
    • This non-sticky sunscreen is amazing. It comes in a small deodorant like tube and works very well under your make up, and dark-skinned ladies and other people of color, it doesn’t leave the dreaded white cast like most sunscreens do! It is a bit expensive for the amount you get, fortunately I got it on sale at Sephora.
  4. Butter London “Wellies” nail polish
    • This is one of my favorite nail polishes to wear in the summer. It’s a bright neon green/yellow color it doesn’t go on streaky and I always get compliments on this one!
  5. Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide
    • This is my new favorite foundation. It’s incredibly light weight and highly pigmented. The color match on me is amazing and it comes in a large variety of colors. Oily skin girls, this foundation is a gift. Although I still get oil coming through (my skin is EXTREMELY oily) it doesn’t break down this foundation when I have to blot throughout the day like EVERY other foundation seems to do on me. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Well done, Laura Mercier.
  6. Bite Beauty “Rhubarb” high pigment pencil
    • I love this lip pencil the rhubarb color compliments my natural lip color well. It’s suitable for everyday wear.
  7. Nars “Taos” Blush
    • This is my favorite Nars blush! It’s a deep peachy berry type of color with a little bit of shimmer, perfect for a night out or everyday depending how fully you like your make up during the day.
  8. Cover FX Custom Drops
    • Yasssss Cover FX. This product is going to save me so much money! Yes, the custom drops themselves are pretty pricey, but it’s meant to be added to existing products to either correct the color or add more coverage to products such as tinted moisturizers and bb creams. It means you’ll use less of those other products and you won’t have to buy two of the same product to mix to get the right color. I like to use it in less coverage foundations and my Estee Lauder BB cream to add that little bit more coverage as I don’t like to use super heavy foundations in warm weather. If I add this I don’t even have to use concealer. Amazing!
  9. Fresh Soy Facial Cleanser
    • This mild cleanser is good for cleansing the skin without stripping or over-drying. It won’t do anything for blemishes, so you would still need another product for that. I don’t know if it’s just mine, but, the smell leaves something to be desired.
