June 2017 Favorites

June 2017 Favorites - Monthly Favorites

Goodbye June and hello July! Last month I was really into glowy skin from head to toe, as demonstrated by the beauty products I’ve been reaching for most lately. My makeup no-buy also recently ended and I’ve been on a huge initiative to get the most out of the products I already own. I’m in no rush to go out and buy new things, so this is a habit I want to keep up for as long as possible.

Watch the video below and scroll ahead to read about what I’ve been loving in the beauty world as of late.

Buxom Big & Sexy Matte Lipstick in White Russian (c/o)
For the ultimate nude pink lipstick, look no further. The formula is amazing and the color is universally versatile. Buxom is most well known for their lip glosses, but their lipsticks are certainly worth checking out as well.

Smashbox x Casey Holmes Spotlight Highlight Palette in Pearl (c/o)
With three colors in one palette, you can wear this product so many different ways. Two of the shades are satiny, while the third has a much more intense glitter finish. I love the tones in this highlight palette since they don’t appear dark upon my fair skin.

No7 Bronzer in Golden Sand (c/o)
The formula of this bronzer is top notch, and the color is fabulous on fair skin too! Golden Tan may not be dark enough for deeper skin tones, but this bronzer comes in three shades so shop accordingly.

No7 Blush in Peach Velvet (c/o)
Similar to the bronzer, the No7 powder blush has the same silky smooth texture as the bronzer. The matte peach color is so perfect for summer and it’s my go-to blush lately.

Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Balm-to-Oil Pre Shampoo Masque (c/o)
This has been my favorite overnight hair mask for months, but especially now that I have balayaged hair. You actually only need to put it in your dry hair for 20 minutes before washing it out, but before bed is just the easiest way for me to work it into my routine. A little bit goes a long way and I use this product about once a week to nourish my ends.

Redken Anti-Snap Anti-Breakage Leave-In Treatment (c/o)
I take 1-3 pumps of this product through the ends of my wet, freshly washed hair to help my brush glide through and minimize the breakage in the process. I had zero expectations for this product and I was amazed by how much I enjoyed using it. You all know, I am quite picky with styling products and I prefer to keep things minimal. This product successfully passed the test and is now a part of my hair care routine.

Colleen Rothschild Nourishing Body Lotion (c/o)
You need to try this lotion if you have sensitive skin! It’s super gentle and although it contains trace amounts of fragrance, it smells nearly unscented and does not flare up my skin.

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (c/o)
There are so many great things about this product. First, it’s extremely creamy and the hydration lasts all day. Second, the scent is incredible and very reminiscent of Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache. Lastly, the product has a fine shimmer that makes your legs and arms appear extra radiant and smooth.

Note: I received the items noted with (c/o) for consideration.
  • The Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Balm-to-Oil Pre Shampoo Masque sounds great! I know my hair takes a beating during the summer especially and could use some TLC.

  • I don’t put on much makeup nor use many skincare products. I have heard a lot of good things about No7 though! xx corinne

  • I just love peach velvet hues, especially when it comes to lipsticks. I think it gives the face a more natural and fresh look. The bronzer in golden sand is something I’m contemplating on buying. Cheers!!

  • Denay DeGuzman

    This summer I’ve been wearing minimal makeup but loading up on a variety of sunscreen products. But now I’m super interested in the Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. I’d love to have a little shimmer with my hydration!

  • Teresa Britton

    The lipstick sounds great. I love a pink/nude lipstick w/ my fair skin. The pre-shampoo mask sounds awesome too. I have been using one as well. It’s so important in the summer, I think.

  • On women mind

    I m loving smash box lipsticks and No7 golden sand bronz. Just read about anti breakage leave-in treatment sounds great. Surly, I will give it a try soon.

  • Gideon Akachukwu Okorie

    My sister normally uses the nude pink lipstick, her favorite and it’s an awesome product.

  • Christiana Acha

    Really need to get back on track with make up and beauty products. These really look nice.

  • Nicole Caudle

    I haven’t bought any new makeup in a while. I’ve heard so many good things about Smash Box. I will have to check out the others on the list.

  • I find what I like and keep buying it because it’s easiest for me. I do love that lipstick and may need to give that a try

  • Kimberly Caines

    Ok, I’m convinced that I need to check out the Buxum lippies. I tried their glosses and they tingle on your lips which can sometimes be uncomfortable. I need to try their lipsticks still though.
