June Favorites

So I've been a little naughty recently and did some damage at Sephora and Macy's. I had a little makeover done at Macy's for the launch of Bobbi Brown's Navy & Nude Collection. I really liked the collection but I only left with some essentials that I needed.

I'm really loving the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Even Finish Compact Foundation ($46/.28oz). This foundation gives me a natural coverage and it's really long lasting. It's best suited for normal to combo/oily skin which I tend to have in the summer. Dry skinned gals should stay away from this foundation because it will highlight your dry areas. It's more of a satin finish which I prefer to a matte finish. The only con I have is that it only contains .28 oz which is very little for foundation and the price point. Since I'm only going to be using it in the summer I don't mind the amount it brings.I also bought the Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Eyeliner in "Chocolate Shimmer Ink" ($23/0.1oz). Which I've heard countless beauty youtuber's rave about. Especially Prissy from PrissyandPink. I had to see what all the rave was about, and I think it's a wonderful product. I never really used gel eyeliners but this has converted, and it's paired greatly with the Bobbi Brown Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush ($26). This brush makes it so easy to apply and the eyeliner stays on all day! Another brush I had to buy was the Bobbi Brown Bronzer Brush ($52). OMG this brush is heavenly!! It feels so soft and applies just the right amount of bronzer to give you a sunkissed glow! Of course I had to get it since everything Michele1218 raves about I need to get. She is my enabler!!

Some MAC products I'm loving are the MAC Paint Pot in "Eclair" which is a limited edition item, but I was lucky to get my hands on it. It's a bronzy brown color that makes a smokey eye easy to do. Lilly from What I Heart Today and Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup Raved about it! So like a good little girl I had to go on a hunt for it! They made me do it!! ;) From the All About Orange collection I had to buy Flamingo. This lipstick is a mix of orange and pink, more on the pink side. On the bullet it looks darker, when applied it's quite sheer, but with a tan this lipstick looks so good!!

My latest addition to my skincare regimen is two products from Ole Henriksen. The Truth Serum with Vitamin C and Collagen Booster ($48/1 oz.) and Pure Truth Vitamin C Youth Activating Oil ($45/1 oz). I love using Vitamin C to brighten the complexion. After reading Caroline Hiron Blog (skincare genius) for quite some time now I knew that I had to incorporate a hydrating serum and a good oil at night. I've been using the serum in the day and night and the oil as a nighttime moisturizer, and I've loved the result this has given my to skin. My skin feels so much smoother and brighter. I can't rave enough about this line especially since it's more of a natural skin care line. The oil contains Rosehip oil which is a repairing oil for acne marks and pigmentation.
