Monthly Favorites : My June Favorites

June 30, 2015

June makeup favorites
Where has the time gone? I mean, yesterday was June 1st. So many new favorites are standing on the front row of my vanity lately, here’s some of them.. 

I became a sucker for red lipsticks and there are four shades that I’ve been using on-the-go. 1) L’Oreal’s Cocoricco is a stunning red-carpet red. Even though it has a matte finish, it has one of the creamiest textures I’ve ever tried and doesn’t give the overly-dry look to the lips after a few hours. Definitely one of my favorite type of lipstick! 2) Bourjois’s lipliner in Berry Much: a beautiful creamy berry shade (full review here) – I’ve had this one for less than a year and I’m already running out of it. Enough said. 3) Wojooh’s lipsticks are insane! Toot Frooti has a gorgeous deep berry color. 4) The last one is not red, but I had to put it in there: Wojooh’s Rose Wood is the perfect dusty pink nude. You can read more about the Wojooh lipsticks here.

I haven’t showed much love to Lancome’s mascara Grandiose, but it deserves all the love in the world. It’s one of those mascaras that you start loving after two or three weeks of usage. Grandiose provides the perfect amount of volume and length to give you that fan-effect. Check out the full review here!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, I wouldn’t have looked “alive” without you. It covers darks circles beautifully and leaves such a lovely radiance that makes you look vivid. I featured in it in my “how to perfect your base” post not long ago.

Remember the MAC x Osbourne collection I talked about here? I got Sharon’s Mineralize Skin Finish in Refresh which has a highlighter and a bronzer. I’ve been using the pink-toned highlighter a lot lately. It’s kind of a pink version of Soft & Gentle. Lurv it!

So I’ve been snapping a lot lately. You’ll mostly see my cat, my mom, and a lot of makeup. Fun stuff, basically. I’m over at beautyresidence!

What are your June favorites? Have you tried these products before?

    Great picks! I have been loving the NARS radiant creamy concealer for quite some time now, I love the stick version of the concealer too! If you love concealing around the brows I’d definitely recommend giving that one a try! x

    I really enjoyed the Grandiose mascara myself! I’ve yet to repurchase it, but when I “was” using it I loved it! It really doesn’t take that long to get used to the wand either and even with the extra effort it’s totally worth the payoff 😉 xx
