Every few weeks I go through my make up bag and add and exchange products to make sure I use everything in my stash. This month, I have been using many products that had previously been neglected.
|origins a perfect world & drink up intensive, bioderma h20 sensibio, bio oil|
Origins A Perfect World - This is my current everyday moisturizer. It works well and supposedly has anti oxident properties. I haven't noticed anything major other than having nice moisturized skin. I also like the fruity scent.
Origins Drink Up Intensive - This has probably been my favourite skin care item this month. I discovered this in my little makeup bag that holds all my samples. This mask is a treatment that is supposed to be used overnight. It absolutely smells divine and moisturizes the skin well without leaving an oily residue. Will definitely purchase the full size once I run out.
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution - I continued loving this little gem! Still a favourite and definitely HG material.
Bio Oil - I purchased this sometime last year but hardly used it, since the main ingredient is a mineral oil. This product is basically like a fancier and liquid form of vaseline. BUT, my skin reacted to something again last month and was bumpy and extremely dry for a week. Nothing worked until I decided to give this a try. I managed to get the dryness under control by using the oil in the evenings.
|MAC pro longwear, bourjois healthy mix, estee lauder double wear light, garnier roller, bobbi brown corrector|
MAC Pro longwear - On really hot and humid days I used this foundation. It's not my favourite as I find it too trying, but it will last all day. I use this in NC30.
Bourjois Healthy Mix - This is my favourite drugstore foundation. It's lightweight and gives a beautiful finish. My shade is 53.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light - I got this big sample quite some time ago and decided to give it a go. It's a light-medium foundation. I will be reviewing it soon. I use it in shade Intensity 3.
Garnier Anti Dark Circle Eye Roller - I love this drugstore concealer. It's got light to medium coverage but is perfect for the undereye area. My shade is light-medium.
Bobbi Brown Corrector - I am still unsure about this product but I'm trying to finish it up. It's heavy duty and will work wonders on really dark circles. I use this in Peach.
Nars Deep Throat - This has become my everyday peachy-pink blush of choice. It's got a gorgeous sheen and looks beautiful with my skin slightly tanned.
Benefit Coralista - Not sure how I feel about this blush, but I use it anyway. It's a warm peach with shimmer to it. Again, perfect colour for spring and summer.
MAC Superduper-Natural - This is an LE mineralize blush from ages ago. I only started using it now. It's a bronzy peach with a sheen. It bronzes up the skin nicely without having to use a bronzer. I don't think this blush would work in winter time during my paler months.
Nars Laguna Bronzer - This bronzer has been in my collection for a while and I generally rotate my bronzers. It's a gorgeous light warm brown shade with a slight sheen. I can see why it's HG for so many people as it will work for anyone from nc15/nw15 to nc/nw 40.
This month was all about my Nars taupes, as they had been collecting dust. I decided to choose a few of my Nars eyeshadows and use them. And I am so glad I did. Nars eyeshadows have generally great pigmentation and apply smoothly.
Nars Earth Angel - The shade that I used in this duo is the warm taupy brown. It has a slight purple undertone to it.
Nars Rajasthan - The taupy shade is a little more golden and reminds me of MAC's Patina. Gorgeous.
Nars Cairo - This is a beautiful warm peachy taupe colour. Very neutral and perfect for a simple daytime look.
Alverde Shimmery Taupe - This taupy eyeshadow is by a German organic drugstore brand. The colour is a shimmery taupe as the name suggests. It's medium taupy brown that's very similar to MAC's Patina.
As far as lip products, I will upload a separate post about my favourite summer lip products.
What did you love in June?
