Favorites of the Month: June

I know I know.. I missed last months favorites, but Im back again for another favorites of the month! Check it out!!

MAC Surf Baby! Powerpoint Eye Pencil 'Blue Noon' $15.50
I wrote a whole seperate post on this eye pencil a few days ago, because it really is my latest beauty product obsession! I love the color, a teal blue, and it lasts all day! Ive been wearing this eye pencil still almost every single day on my lower waterline! I feel it just adds that little spark of color to brighten my eyes up a bit since Im always sleep deprived =(

MAC Surf Baby! Lipglass 'Good Lovin' $15.50
I thought that I would like 'Strange Potion' more than this one, but lately, since Ive been sporting the 'Blue Noon' eye pencil, I figure I would be more subtle with the lips. It has a nice  frosty pink color which looks fine on its own, not too frosty, and really makes a lipstick look sparkly and shiny! I have very pigmented lips anyways, so this gloss tones it down a bit to look more nude, but slightly frosty =)

MAC Surf! Baby Lipstick 'Mocha' $15.50
I bought this lipstick initially just to add to my makeup kit for my jobs, because I thought the color would be a little too dark for me. Miraculously, I tried it one day on myself, and its only about a shade or two darker than my natural lipcolor, so it gives me just the right amount of color without it being too bold! It actually has more of a peachy coral tint to it added to the brown =) Its a satin finish but it is pretty matte when you wear it. Goes on super smooth! I thought it was a cremesheen! Lasts very long too! I ate pizza, drank two cups of water and a Dr. Pepper, and it was still on! Ya my diet aint the best..haha

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush 'Dollface' $25
I also reviewed this product with the other Tarte products I bought, so Ill just do a little recap! I like 'Dollface' slightly more than 'Tipsy' just because its a little more sutle. I love the baby pink color on me because I have fair skin, so it compliments really well! It reminds me of Japan and Harajuku for some reason... =) hence the name 'Dollface'. Its a matte finish and lasts an entire work day!

Laura Geller Baked Blush N Brighten 'Apricot Berry' $29.50
I got this product in my latest Birchbox, and it was full sized!!! I was soooo excited to try it because I looove bronzers, and it was perfect timing for summer =) Its a bronzer, blush, and highlighter all in one! Its not super super shimmery, it just gives you the right amount of glow! The first time I wore it, my friend who is my roomate asked me if I went to the beach! Which is exactly what I want people to think! lol The apricot tones in it add a little bit of color that adds a bit of life to your face!

TIGI Love Peace Planet Totally Beachin Body and Waves Styling Mist
This mist is the best smelling hair product I have ever tried before! Its Coconut, Mango and Vanilla, and one whiff of this and your automatically back at the beach with sand in between your toes! Not only does it smell fantastic, but its sort of like a sea spray. You spritz it on either dry or damp hair, scrunch and you have beachy waves! It adds texture and seperation for the perfect beachy look for summer =)

Korean Cream
Ok, this was a wildcard for me, because I have nooooo idea what the heck this stuff is! My dads girlfriend gave this to me when she came back from Korea, because she noticed I had started to breakout really badly... After using this twice a day for only a week, I noticed a dramatic change! I had these small little bumps all over my forehead that I couldnt get rid of, and this did the trick! Sorry, I dont know what this product is called or if its even made for your face, but it works wonders if you have acne. Doesnt dry your skin out either!
