June 2014 Faves
Hi loves! How’s your weekend? Me? Oh well, still here… working. I’ve been planning to blog about my June Favorites but for some reason I end up falling asleep whenever I start either editing my photos or typing. Ugh. What’s wrong with me? Anyway, I’m going to stop now before I start typing something cliche like I always do whenever I do my monthly faves. Let’s just get started, shall we?
Human ♥ Nature Nourishing Facial Wash & Face Toner
Back last month, I had this serious breakouts. Pimples just kept popping out from everywhere and none of my skincare products were able to get rid of them so I decided to take a chance and buy something from Human Heart Nature. I’ve been reading a lot of great things about this brand so I decided to take a risk. Besides, my skin’s been acting up so if it didn’t work then oh well. But alas! These products worked! My skin’s still not in the best shape, but at least I was able to get rid of those nasty bumps and redness.
Myra VitaGlow BB Cream in ‘Ivory’; KATE TOKYO Quick Remake Liquid For Cover Makeup;
San San HD Concealer in ‘Natural’ & Gatsby Powdered Oil Clear Paper
Myra VitaGlow BB Cream in ‘Ivory’ – Even though it doesn’t give that much coverage, I like how it makes me look radiant and glowy. I often use it on the go especially underneath my Ellana Pressed Mineral Foundation. Together they’re a perfect match!
KATE TOKYO Quick Remake Liquid For Cover Makeup – I don’t know how much “gushing” do I have to do in order to express how I LOVE this product. This product is a savior when you need to do some retouching and powder is just not enough. When you want to look fresh and you want to look like you just applied your makeup all over again. Whoever made this product is a total genius.
San San HD Concealer in ‘Natural’ – At first I didn’t like this concealer. It was a bit thicker than my usual concealers and I think I broke out because of this (not sure so please don’t take my word for it). But I tried it again and I ended up liking it. It offered amazing coverage and even though it’s thicker, it didn’t emphasize my fine lines and my dry spots. I can totally see why this concealer is very much hyped.
Gatsby Powdered Oil Clear Paper – I’ve been experiencing a bit of oiliness in my T-Zone area. Not too much but it’s something that I’m not really used too. Like I said, my skin’s been acting weird recently and this is also one of those products that helped control the oiliness around that area.
Ellana Minerals Eyebrow/Eyeshadow Quad in ‘Beloved, Intense, Wish & Hush’
Etude House Drawing Show Brush Liner
Ellana Minerals Eyebrow/Eyeshadow Quad in ‘Beloved, Intense, Wish & Hush’ – I cannot believe I haven’t reviewed this yet! OMG. I am so sorry. That’s next on my todo list, I promise. Anyway, this has been been my go-to eyeshadow and eyebrow quad for past month. The shadows in this quad are just so richly pigmented and they stay on for a decent amount of time. If I want to spice up my eye look, I just use my Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadows then I use this quad to contour my eyelid. I LOVE IT! Etude House Drawing Show Brush Liner I’ve been loving this eyeliner and it’s the one that I’ve been using whenever I run errands. It’s not as pricey as KPalette but it has the same tip/applicator. It transfers a bit in my lower lashline which is why I don’t use it in special occasions but for times when you just want to use a regular eyeliner, it’s definitely a great alternative.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in ‘Radiant Magenta’
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in ‘Radiant Magenta’ – I’ve already raved about this in my previous review, so I won’t blab much about it here. Point is, it’s been my favorite blush ever since I got it. It’s subtle yet it’s noticeable. It gives you that radiant glow but it’s on the pricey side.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette – I can’t explain why I love this. I’m going to do a review about this soon but even then I still don’t think I will be able to accurately describe why I love this product. Let’s just say that the hype is true. At least for me. I know that some people are totally head over heels about this product, and some aren’t really impressed. I am one of those who loved it. You’ll probably see why in my future review.
Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie in ‘Summer Crush’
Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippie in ‘Summer Crush’ – Aside from ‘The Morning After’ which was already my favorite since May, I’ve also been loving this one. It’s a bit of a muted hot pink if you ask me. It’s a lot more wearable and like I said in my review, it’s very moisturizing. No lip balm needed!
Noconi Kabuki Brush & Queen B 99% Alcohol
Noconi Kabuki Brush – I don’t know if you noticed but I have this strange addiction to kabuki brushes. Landmark is actually heaven for me because they have tons of kabuki brushes there in different shapes and sizes. I got this there and it’s a square-shaped kabuki brush. It’s really dense and it packs a lot of product. I like using it for my Ellana Minerals Loose Powder Foundation.
Queen B 99% Alcohol – I got rid of a lot of my makeup and I gave it to my nieces and I also sanitized a whole lot of my makeup. This is such a miracle product. It evaporates quickly but you’re sure that your makeup is clean clean clean.
Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in ‘Bare Bones’, Maybelline Colorshow Nail Polish in ‘Hooked-On-Pink’ and
Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops
Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in ‘Bare Bones’, Maybelline Colorshow Nail Polish in ‘Hooked-On-Pink’ – I have been loving these shades lately. Both of them are really opaque (The Maybelline nail polish can in fact go on with a single layer) and they look beautiful on my nails. They’re the ones that I’ve been using a lot for the past month.
Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops – I don’t know who introduced me to this product but I saw this from someone’s instagram/blog. This is only PhP149 but it speeds up the drying time of my nail polishes and I also believe that it extends their longevity. I for some reason think that this is a miracle worker, lol.
So those are my favorites for the month of June. Let me know through the comments what are your favorites, and also if you would like me to review anything in particular from this post that I haven’t reviewed yet. If you haven’t, check out my previous monthly faves. Let me know what you think.
