June Favorites: Beauty.
Not sure how we’re here, but we are and it’s full blown summer and I’m LOVING it.
Honestly there are a ton of products that I talk about ALL the time that I’ve been loving this month and things that saved me while traveling. I’ve been doing my hair SO much – the Redken Hot Sets 22 saves me with how much heat styling I’ve down, the Kenra Blow Dry Spray too – both those things I’ve talked about over and over again.
The rest? Just minimal makeup now that I’m pretty much done with the book tour. I’m constantly using the RMS luminizer because it brightens up my face, even with no makeup on.
And here are a few other stand out things this month that I adore! Make sure to leave your loves down below.
Drunk Elephant D Bronzi Serum. I was waiting MONTHS for this!! Drunk Elephant is definitely my favorite skincare brand (along with Sunday Riley!) and when I saw this was coming out, I was super excited. However, I assumed it was a self tan type of thing, like the Coola serum that I mentioned last month, and it’s not! It’s simply a bronzer gel-serum that works in your moisturizer or sunscreen. I’m obsessed. The color is perfect for me and doesn’t look orange at all. I have been using this everyday, even when I’m not wearing makeup!
Jouer Skinny Dip Highlighter. If you remember some of my favorites last summer, this was ALL I wore! I wore it as highlighter and as eye shadow. I love this SO much. It’s gorgeous, a perfect texture, such a pretty color. I can’t really break it out until summer because it’s a bit dark for me. But it’s so so so stunning.
Nails Inc Flock You Polish Duo. Yes I’m in my 30s and still really into neon. I can’t help it. Especially in the summer near the pool and the beach! I found these at Sephora and couldn’t pass them up. The lighter sparkle color is definitely sheer, but it looks so pretty over the pink. And the pink is perfect on its own too!
Volume de Chanel Mascara. I mentioned this once earlier this year but since I just bought two more tubes it’s worth mentioning again. I shy away from most Chanel products (because $$$) but this is unreal. The best mascara I’ve used in forever. Totally worth it.
Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen. I’ve raved about this sunscreen for years. I’ve mainly used it on my face the past two summers, but now I’m just using it everywhere since it’s SPF 50. I love it, it rubs in easily and barely has a scent. It’s perfect.
Pat McGrath Lipstick. With my last book tour, I exclusively wore MAC Relentlessly Red, which is still a huge favorite. This time, I’ve mostly worn Pat McGrath Pink Ultraness. I’ve mentioned these lipsticks before because they last FOREVER. They stain the lips (in a non-stain way if that makes sense) and seriously stay on for hours and hours. They are also super comfortable!
YSL All Hours Concealer. I’ve been using this concealer combined with the Tarte Shape Tape for a few months. I’m very into it. It’s almost like a thinner version of Shape Tape with the same coverage. My face is so dry and this doesn’t emphasize the dryness. The only downside is that the lightest shade still isn’t really light enough for under my eyes. It just feels so much easier to use and less thick than Shape Tape. So I mix ’em!
Now what is on your list for the next month or so? There’s nothing I’m crazy over right now, but I am looking forward to the Nordstrom anniversary sale and some of the makeup they will have discounted. I also got a Glo Pro last year and some great skin care stuff, so I’m pumped!
