June Faves



June was, personally, a shitty month. Yup, no other word works (believe me, I tried others.) I was contemplating not doing a faves post at all, just bypass the whole month like it never existed, but I couldn't do that. I like faves post just too much. I like reading them. I like writing them. That said onto mine:

Sigma E30- Pencil brush
I finally got my Sigma brush kit! I'd put off buying it for so long, but I am quite happy with it. I did find that I used the pencil brush a lot, especially considering it was one of the brushes I didn't think I'd gt much use of. It's great for faux smokey looks (I like to smudge shadow over a gel liner and smoke it out, purple has been my go to lately) and it is great for precise crease application.

Marcelle Liquid Eyeliner Pen in Very Black
I've raved about this quite a few times. I think mine is almost done, but I love it. I used it a lot in June because I realized it was waterproof (tear proof at least.) I don't think they advertise it as such, but it doesn't smudge or transfer at all. For my full review click here.

Urban Decay Primer Potion- Eden
Eden is the matte skin tone version of the original UDPP. I have the Sephora exclusive tube packaging and I must say I like it a better than the original wand type. I love this primer and I love the colour! It not only primes but it conceals as well and you can use it alone to even out skin tone. The shade is similar to MAC's Paint Pot Painterly, but I'll have a comparison post soon.

Coconut Body Butter, NYX India, Barry M Strawberry Milk, Marcelle Eyeliner, UDPP Eden, Skin 79 BB Cream

Body Shop Coconut Body Butter
I love the Body Shop's butters, but I had been without for a bit. When I finally got a few (okay, bunch) I shoved them in a drawer and ended up not even using them. I did grab a coconut one and I haven't looked back since. I love the scent and I love the new mini sized pots they have. I like that I can get one in a ton of scents. I like having variety!

Makeup For Ever Mist & Fix
I had just bought MAC Fix+ when I saw this, so I went with the "to go" size (Fix+ is waay cheaper than MUFE as well.) I hadn't used too much of this one, but it was so warm here in June that I thought I'd give it a try. I really like setting mists overall, and this one is no exception. It hydrates and gives long lasting hold.

Barry M "Strawberry Milkshake" Lip Gloss and NYX Black Label "India" Lipstick
These were are a perfect combo and were pretty much my go to lip for the month. I really like the shade of "India" but I find it looks a bit harsh on me without a gloss and "Strawberry Milk" is the perfect milky pink to go with it. Plus it just smells so good!

Skin 79 Diamond Collection The Prestige BB Cream
After trying the mini set, I was pretty impressed with this variety of BB cream so I did some browsing online and got this full size for $17 on Ebay (compared to the average $25+ other etailers wanted.) I'll have a comparison between this and Dr. Jart Premium BB Cream soon.


Urban Decay Naked Palette
I got mine a few months ago now, but once I got it I didn't start using it right away. How bad is that? To want something that bad then not even use it? I have most definitely made up for my initial lack of use and used this pretty much non stop in June. It is just so quick to grab and match shadows.

What were your faves last month?

  2. That Barry M lipstick is so pretty. I love the Body Shop body butters too, and even though I'm a coconut lover I'm actually in love with their Satsuma more! Hope July is better for you :)
