June Favorites

Well, apparently June decided to be the shortest month of them all and fly right by. Seriously, though. June has went by faster than any other month this year. I have no idea why, but it really did. With June already gone, that means 2013 is half way over. Can you believe that? It's just crazy! 

This month I didn't wear a ton of makeup. I've only put on a full face maybe a handful of times. The hotter it gets, the more that I lack motivation to do my makeup.

I can't believe I am saying this, but I've jumped on the bandwagon. I am obsessed with the Revlon Lip Butters. I know, I know. I've dogged them in the past, but I'm a new woman. My eyes have been opened. I was never a fan because they weren't pigmented enough for me. Well, when the PX had all Revlon products for 40% off, I decided to grab a couple in what seemed to be more intense, vibrant shades. I am glad that I did! I picked up the colors Candy Apple and Raspberry Pie. I absolutely love these two! 
Another lip product that I've been loving is the elf Conditioning Lip Balm with SPF 15. This lip balm is ridiculously hydrating and moisturizing. I like to lather my lips up with this about two times a day. The color and staying power is quite impressive!

For eyes, these three products that you see are pretty much the only ones that I have been using all month. I picked up the Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion because my best friend swears by this. I was reluctant because I've never been a Cover Girl fan, but I'm hooked. I've been using this mascara more than my They're Real! I can't say that I like it more, as They''re Real! does a lot for me, but since it's so expensive, I'm trying to make it last as long as I can. Lash Blast definitely gets the job done. It's a favorite in my book!
I'm sure you've all seen my Pixi eyeliner in Oyster Glow in other recent posts, but I seriously cannot get enough of this! I use it as an inner eye brightener, brow bone highlight, nose and cupids bow highlight, and I even use it on my cheek bones! It is seriously the most gorgeous champagne color ever. It will be a really, really sad day when I run out of this. 
The last eye favorite for this month was my Tweezerman eyelash curler. The only other eye lash curler I have is my elf one, and it does the job just fine. But I do find that this one gets a bit closer to my lash line so I'm able to get a more dramatic curl. It's also rose gold. How can I not be obsessed with it?!

The three products you see above have pretty much been the only face products I've used all month. I've reached for my Revlon Colorstay a few times, but my Garnier BB Cream has definitely got the most use! I got this because my other Garnier BB Cream was about a year old and the formula was just obviously not as good as it used to be. I don't care what anyone says, the Garnier BB creams are the BEST! You can't change my mind. I do however lik this new formula better than the old. I bought this one specifically because Kasey did a review on it and it made her skin look amazing! I definitely recommed this BB cream to everyone! 
I have the worst undereye circles so when I saw this Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser, I had to give it a go. I have had this for a few months now, but I just started using it a lot this month. While I think that there are probably better products out there, this one does the job well enough for me. 
I've been using my Rimmel Stay Matte powder like crazy! I'm not head over heels in love with this powder or anything, but I really just needed to start using it up. My holy grail Hello Flawless! is really expensive, so I really want to conserve that as much as possible. I picked up Stay Matte for less than $2 on clearance at the PX. I'd rather use this for everyday, and only use my Benefit HF for the more important ones.

I am kind of possessive over my hair. If you guys haven't seen, I kind of have a lions mane. I have super thick hair, but it can get coarse. To prevent that, I've been using the L'Oreal Triple Resist Ultimate Strength Solution. I've only been using it about twice a week over the past month, so I haven't noticed a huge difference. The only thing that I can say is that I find there to be less fallout when brushing my hair. I can't really say that this is a "favorite" moreso than a product that I've just been using regularly. ...Why did I even include this? Ugh. 

I hoped that you all enjoyed this month's favorites! Which products have you been using on the daily this month? 


  1. Oh man, we're loving alot of the same things! LOVE the lip butters, stay matte, age rewind AND the lash blast! Good picks :)

  2. Hi! you mention about the age rewind concealer that there are better ones out there. Which ones do you like better :)?
    I was thinking about buying the age rewind concealer but maybe you know a better one instead?
