June Favorites!

I know I am a couple weeks late but I wanted to try and start doing my monthly favorites. I like to change up the products that I use a lot and spend a lot of time trying out products that are new. I often like to just open drawers and pick out something I know I haven't used in a while and see how many times I can use it within the month. I do have certain staples that I use month to month like primers and foundations but there are many products that I change up all the time. I am going to do a monthly favorite post and just give a run down of some products that I use and love throughout the month.

My first favorite is this Revlon Photoready Shadow + Primer Palette. I bought a few of these palettes when they first came out but they got shoved in a drawer and forgotten until this month. I love this little guy! The colors are beautiful and the palette gives you enough colors to be versatile. You get a "primer" which is really an all over lid color. You also get three eyeshadow colors and a shimmer top coat. I do like that this palette lays out where everything should go.

I did the swatches on bare skin. As you can see most of the shades are shimmery. I love that but some of you may not. They are nicely pigmented and do last quite a while. I would however, use a cream base or cream primer instead of the one they give you.

I also love this Maybelline Color Show Sequins Nail Polish. I have been wearing it on my toe nails for the better part of the month. I did a review on all of these polishes that you can read here!
This color is called Rose Bling.

I also really like this new Maybelline Color Show Polka Dot Nail Polish in Clearly Spotted. It is one of the most unique polishes that I own and I have not been able to get enough of it this month. It lasted a long time and it looks really cool on both light, dark, and bright colored polishes.
My next favorite is a love/hate! It has been a great staple in both my personal makeup kit and my professional one. It is the Revlon Precision Brush On Lash Adhesive. I love this stuff for the most part. It will make you false lashes stay on forever!! The hold is great. I love the precision brush and it dries pretty clear. I think for the price it is a great product. My only gripe is the packaging. I can not get my bottle from getting dirty. I clean it off often but it still gets all gooped up and dirty. As you can see from the picture.
I also have been loving these L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. I have been obsessed with the L'oreal Infallible Shadows for some time now but these two have been used a lot this month. The violet shade was a limited edition shade that came out this spring but I have still been seeing it around at the drugstores so I would snag it while you can. I did a review on all the shades in the collection here! The other shade and many many more were reviewed in this post.

If you read my blog on the regular then you know my love of the Maybelline Color Tattoos runs deep. The two above have not left my makeup bag all month and have seen a lot of love as you can tell. The color on the left is called Inked In Pink and is part of the Precious Metals Collection which I reviewed here. The other is called Barely Branded which was part of a limited edition collection but I know you can still snag this guy on Ebay.
These things are my favorite product EVER!! I use them as a base almost everyday. They last forever!
 I have been a big fan this month of neutral looks with a pop of color like a bright turquoise shadow or a nice purple. I also have like to use this little gem of a liner to add a little pizzaz as well. I usually apply it over a black liner. This is the NYX Liquid Crystal Liner in Crystal Jade. It is a lot of fun to use. You can buy it here
My next little love is the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Nude. This is probably one of the best discoveries I have ever made. Now through years of watching Youtube beauty videos I knew that putting a white pencil in your waterline will brighten your eyes up but I thought white was a bit too harsh. When I saw these new pencils I thought this one would work perfect for the waterline but less intense. It is great. It really helps make my eyes look brighter and more open. It also helps cancel out some of the redness that I get from allergies.

I think that is about all of the products that I really was gaga over this month! What are some products that you couldn't get enough of this month?

  1. I have recently learned that clever idea of applying white eyeliner, though I don't actually own any yet! But using nude is also a good more subtle tip. I love the colour tattoos, I'm pretty sure my store sells barely branded as part of the normal collection cause I just bought it I think. Those color show polishes are so much fun! I have the green and pink polka dot ones :)
