June 2013 Beauty Favorites & Empties

It seemed that as fast as Summer came June went I really feel this Summer is going to fly by. I sure hope not Summer is one of my favorite seasons my birthday is in the Summer July 4th (Yes I turned the big 25 two days ago!) All the county fairs begin. I feel summer is just about fun. 

The only fun I really haven't had so far has been with my makeup melting on my face on hot days. Not all days have been hot here in Ohio thank goodness but on the hot ones its gone in under an hour its like why bother putting it on? 

So... On with the Favorites! 

June 2013 Beauty Favorites 

Too Faced Boudoir Palette When I first purchased this palette I had a love hate relationship figuring out what colors to combine for eye looks lets face it I'm not a "Makeup Guru" but I did find 3 colors in the palette that I adore for my most worn makeup look and those colors are In The Buff this tends to be my all over color I wear this from lid to brow than I layer Sugar Walls on my lid for my primary lid color and stick Voulez Vous in my crease. 

Dinair Personal Pro Airbrush System This has been in my favorites for months and isn't going anywhere soon I love this machine this makes doing makeup a breeze I do all my primary makeup first so my shadow, liner, mascara and lips than go over my whole face with my airbrush foundation and I'm done. If I'm really patient I even airbrush my shadow. 

Urban Decay Sin Primer Potion when it comes to eyeshadow primer this has to be my hands down favorite one I even like it better than the original because of the added champagne shimmer. I don't really wear any shadow colors this primer wouldn't work well with. 

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer I swear this is my miracle worker for the hot days I know my foundation will not stick I just use this concealer over my red spots rub it out luckily enough I have good skin so I can get away with calling it my foundation for the day. 

Sephora Native Nude Lip Liner if you seen my YouTube video you know why this is my favorite like I said this is the one lip liner I have that goes with nearly every nude lipstick I have. 

Dior Urban Lipstick since I talked about Sephora Native Nude Lip liner I should go in order and tell you why the Dior Urban Lipstick this month and that's because it works perfectly with my lip liner to just tone down my naturally highly pigmented pink lips and turn them into a gorgeous pinky nude. 

Urban Decay Zero Liner for years and yes I mean years I have been using the MAC Blacktrack Fluidline which I love but my issue is I do wear my liner in my waterline and I don't like the extra step of attempting to set my waterline liner with shadow so I recently switched back to a pencil product and the one Ive been using most is the Urban Decay Zero Liner this liner is the perfect black although I heard perversion is darker I was able to pick Zero up in a 3pc set with 2 other colored liners to try at a recent price at Ulta. 

Lorac 3D Multiplex Mascara I LLOOVVEE this mascara because of the brush end of statement LOL. I tend to love mascara brushes that have that slight curve to them as well as the plastic like bristles those two features really make mascara application clump free for me. 

Timebalm Apricot Skin Renewal Moisturizer I purchased this moisturizer way back when there was a The Balm product hype I found it in my local Marshalls as part of a set and picked it up on a whim I won't lie I have NEVER used skincare products on the regular I really need to but this is my most used moisturizer and its nearly gone!

Victoria Secret Fabulous Trio Sorry I forgot to photograph this with my favorites as well as the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind shame on me but this set I am so obsessed with I got lucky and found it at the most recent Semi Annual sale and I bought out every set of it I could find I even gave away one on my channel not to long ago this scent lives up to its name it truly is Fabulous! The shower gel tends to be the most potent product as it lingers after a shower I like to follow up my shower and use the lotion and body mist I will say I have been reserving this scent for special occasions if I know I'm going somewhere nice or out for the evening this has been my signature scent. 

Last but not least this has to be my ultimate favorite! 

Tigi Bed Head Curlipops Tapered Curling Wand Why do I love this because I suck at using a curling iron with a clip but this I tell you I can handle! I love my hair curled now it looks so much better it adds volume its not flat and boring. I'm even considering going out and buying one of these to give away to you guys! 

On with the empties...

I was recently asked if I would start sharing my empty products of the month it wasn't something I knew for sure if I wanted to share I didn't want to be criticized for how much product I buy and how little I use in a period plus I didn't really want to make a separate video on such but I figured I would oblige to my subscribers and share my empties after all they do fit in nicely with my monthly favorites. 

I'm a lotion freak I tell you after every shower and before bed every night I use lotion I even have my daughter started on this if only I was as faithful to my facial moisturizer as I am to my body lotion I would be good to go. 

I finished 3 bottle of lotion total Philosophy Pure Grace Lotion I picked this up at TJ Maxx last summer because I was interested in seeing how I liked Grace my self a lot of people tend to favor the Philosophy Grace scents but I have to say my self I didn't like Pure Grace and wouldn't see my self trying any of the other "Grace" scents. Another lotion I finished and wasn't to thrilled with was Victoria Secret Tahiti Secrets Lychee and Monoi Oil I picked this scent up about two years ago at a Semi Annual Sale and I had been using it on and off but it was time to just use it and finish it I have so many lotions that I open and start using and than I move onto another I hate being restricted to one scent but yet I have so many open products that I really need to commit to and finish. One lotion I did love and used up is a cult favorite Victoria Secret Lovespell are you seeing a trend with Victoria Secret I just really do adore Victoria Secret body care. 

Two other products I finished were Bath & Body Works products lets face it I won't lie I'm just not loving Bath & Body Works like I use to their scent selection doesn't impress me anymore I feel like they are catering to the younger generation I'm 25 and don't want to smell like a fruit basket that's not to say I don't like fruity scents I do but they have to be blended right I feel that Victoria Secret has nailed it with there fruity floral scents I feel those are more age appropriate for me so I am trying my hardest to phase out the majority of my Bath & Body Works body care I even donated a whole hoard of it to a local nursing home to residents who don't get such luxuries. One shower gel I did finish was Bath & Body Works Rio Rumberry this is fruity there is no other way to put it to me it smells like a sangria which is basically sugared fruit with wine I liked this for summer and its been one of the few Bath & Body Works scents that have caught my attention. The last Bath & Body Works product I finished was a hand soap now I love Bath & Body Works for hand soaps that's because Victoria Secret hasn't dappled into that market yet lol! My finished hand soap with Bath & Body Works Pink Sugarplum Foaming Hand soap I love both the foaming or deep cleansing from Bath & Body Works I keep these soaps in both my bathrooms and kitchen next month you may see 2 of these empty!
