Similar to April's post, I am combining my favorites in beauty and manicures into one post of awesomeness. Beauty products first! Ready?
Let me tell you a little about each item!
You know there has to be a LUSH Cosmetics product here, right? I actually just received a new jar of this (look at that untouched goodness!) but I was working through a generous sample in May. Loved it so much that I had to purchase it. This ice cream looking concoction is a Shower Smoothie! You grab a bit with your hand or smoosh some into a loofah. There are a few different scents but this beauty smells like the freshest ivory soap ever.
Not going to lie - I only tried Micellar water because it's trendy right now, LOL. But I love it! It does not, in my opinion, take off the copious amount of mascara that I smear on daily, so I wasn't sure how it was going to fit in my routine. Then, I read that Gwenyth Paltrow (I know, I know) suggests using just water to cleanse your face in the morning and prime it for makeup, so I started using this (few drops on a cotton round) in the morning to perk up my skin before makeup. Love it!
I LOVE THIS MASCARA. I may have featured it on the blog before but I don't even care. This is the L'Oreal Miss Manga Rock Voluminous formula. I've tried other mascaras and always come back to this. Furthermore, my local Walgreens is discontinuing carrying this, so when I saw the clearance stickers on them, I bought 3.
NYC Cosmetics Smooth Skin Parfait BB Cream in Medium - That is the top swatch. It is a thick but easy to smooth and blend BB cream. It has no smell, it's super inexpensive, and covers fully. I wish it wasn't slightly as pinky, since I am pinky already, but whatevs.
elf Serum Foundation in Light - I saw this on BeautyByKrystal, one of my favorite beauty blogs, and instantly had to go find it. I don't think the Light color is going to last long on me this summer though, LOL. I love a primer so anything with a serum, gel-like texture is right up my alley. It has sheer coverage but makes you look quite polished.
And now...drumroll....time for the polish round up!
I just realized I have no indies here this month! I need to change that in June! Clockwise, from top left:
- Illamasqua Purity
- China Glaze What I Like About Blue
- China Glaze I'll Pink To That
- Zoya Brynn
That's all I got for this month. Have you tried any of these items?
