Happy July!

Here are alllll the things I’ve been loving in June. I went a little nuts with a few makeup things this month for that summery bronze feel. I want to be so bronzey and glittery and for my face to scream SUMMER.

And! If you guys also use the Macadamia Oil hair products (I’ve used those for over 3 years now), since they changed the line, I don’t know which conditioner is which? I’ve always used this deep repair masque (as my conditioner!) so is it now the ultra rich moisture masque? I’m guessing yes. And I’m still totally loving that Briogeo Scalp Revival Shampoo. I’ve been using it once a week!

Also! Total random note but last month, the It Cosmetics CC illuminating cream basically just stopped working for me. I think my skin is way too dry for that thick texture. I’ve still been using the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue daily and since I’ve had on more self-tanner, have just been using that if I have somewhere to go later in the day too!

Now for this past month…

Jouer Skinny Dip eyeshadow palette. This is apparently the month of Jouer for me! I’ve never bought any makeup (aside from a tinted moisturizer years ago) from the line but have seen it for years on youtube. The moment I saw this palette, I was hooked. I do not know what came over me. I HAD to have it! I knew it would be more glittery than I’ve been wearing lately, but I could care less – it’s summer! The shades are amazing. My favorite shade (bikini) is probably the least pigmented, but it is still so good. Absolutely love it. I’ve been wearing it more for going out. At the end of the night, there is a leeeettle bit of glitter fall out on my face. Nothing horrible.

Jouer lip topper in Skinny Dip. I bought this as a bundle with the palette and am absolutely obsessed. Yes it is glittery and sparkly but it smells amazing and isn’t thick and tacky on the lips. I have been loving it by itself or on top of lipstick. PERFECT summer beachy shade!

Jouer powder highlighter in Skinny Dip. Um, can you tell I REALLY bought the whole bundle? Also completely obsessed with this highlighter. It’s a bit dark for my skintone, especially once my self-tanner has worn off, but if I wear it lightly on my cheekbones and it can be both a highlighter and blush. Absolutely gorgeous and so summery. Only thing I’ve been wearing on my face this month!

NARS Orgasm lipstick. June was apparently the month of impulse purchases for me too. I went to Sephora with my cousin one night with no intentions of buying anything and fell in love with this. I had seen reviews and was completely uninterested but in person I was wowed. It is SO gorgeous. Such a lovely summer shade. It’s exactly like the blush, which I haven’t worn in years, but am now inspired to pick back up. I also might grab the liquid blush in orgasm too!

Sunday Riley Flora Oil. This is nothing new, in fact I’ve been using it for nearly 1.5 years now in place of the Luna Oil as I was trying to get pregnant. It’s my second bottle and a daily staple for me at night. I love this stuff, but the main thing I’m using it for right now? I’m actually putting it UNDER my eyes before I do my makeup! I saw this tip on instagram and it has been life changing for me. My skin on my face is so freaking dry, especially under my eyes. This is a lifesaver. (annnnd I just realized I forgot to put this in the photo! Ack! It was packed in a different part of my suitcase because it’s glass and I totally forgot to get it out when I took these pics as soon as I got home.)

Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Eye Palette. I hadn’t been to Ulta in months. Like MONTHS. This was another impulse purchase (ugh!) – and I even brought the reviews up on my phone after looking at it in the store. Some were amazing, some were so-so. Usually not good enough for me to buy a palette. But I kept swatching this in the store and could not stop thinking about it! I have worn it nearly every single day since I bought it. I absolutely LOVE all the shades. And while this is more colorful than the Jouer palette above, it’s not bright nor nearly as glittery (it’s just more shimmer) so it works for daytime! And you don’t get glitter on your face. P.S. it’s also on sale right now, so probably about to be gone.

Supergoop Sunscreen Mousse SPF50. I love this so much more than I anticipated! It’s light and a little bit goes a long way. Used it all over my body on vacation and it’s perfect. Feels like nothing on the skin.

So! That was my crazy June with buying makeup. I also actually bought TWO more palettes that I don’t even need but couldn’t resist on that same night in Sephora when I bought the lipstick. Both Anastasia palettes (the glow kit and the aurora glow) but I’ve had so much other stuff to try out that I am still deciding if I love the two. And basically, I’m not buying anything else until the VIB sale in November! (RIGHT?)
