June Favorites

PhotobucketThis is how the bestie and I spent last Friday night, along with watching Mermaids. Therapy at its best!

Okay. I think I have my makeup mojo back. I’m finally feeling inspired, creative, and colorful again :). I think it may have been the new lipstick I bought that kick started my brain up again lol. Here’s to new makeup and the power it can have! Check out some of my favorites from the past couple of weeks:

PhotobucketPhotobucket Crosswires lipstick from MAC. I’m CRAZY about this color right now, it’s the most perfect/flattering coral I’ve ever seen. I can dab it on for a light stain or apply it from the tube for a bold pop of wearable color. My tan younger sister tried it on and it looked great on her too. Try it the next time you’re at a MAC counter :).

Photobucket Can’t get enough Zoya polish in my life. This is the best nail polish I’ve ever used; not only are the colors beautiful, but the wear time on these babies is amazing. I’ve had the same shade of hot pink on my nails since Sunday with hardly a chip. Worth the $8 price tag.

PhotobucketPhotobucket Personal Style blush from MAC. This is from the All Ages, All Races, All Sexes collection from last year. It had been sitting in my makeup drawers for almost a year and I decided to give it a go two weeks ago. It’s a beautiful rosy brown that gives me a little bit of a flushed/tan look that glows. I’m really pale, and very happy that doesn’t get ruddy/orange on me. Perfect for contouring too. I’ve been wearing this every day.

PhotobucketSmashbox Fusion Eye & Cheek in On in 5. Awesome bronzer that looks really natural and blends like a dream. I haven’t tried it as eyeshadow yet, but I’m sure the colors would pop beautifully.

PhotobucketIvory soap. So simple, so affordable (3 bars for $1), and so effective at removing makeup without irritating my sensitive skin. It’s the only soap that removes every stitch of makeup from my face without having to scrub hard or go over it twice. Can’t see myself not using it, ever.

What are some of your favorite products right now?

  1. Right now I’m loving Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Cleanser (or something like that). It has the ingredients that I love in cold cream, but unlike cold cream it doesn’t leave a nasty slick in the sink.

    Did you order anything from the MAC blogger collection?? I ordered two tubes of Karen’s gloss and two shadows (Parisian Skies and Jealousy Wakes). The shadows are a wee bit out of my comfort zone but the swatches were so beautiful I decided I had to try them!

    • I didn’t get a chance to order any of them! I really only wanted Karen’s gloss, but I don’t like lipglasses. If it had been a plushglass, I would have ordered a few tubes, just because it’s not as sticky. Do you know if it’s sold out?

  2. Another good soap you may want to try is Basis. It’s really cheap too and my dermatologist recommended it in Jr. High (for those pesky acne years). I still use it from time-to-time. It doesn’t dry out my skin like Ivory does in the winter.
