My favorites for June 216: Covergirl Matte BB Cream Kylie Cosmetics Lip Gloss in So Cute L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in 800 Primrose Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in 03 It Cosmetics Live Beauty Fully Complexion Powder Brush #225 Lorac Pro 3 Palette

Hello beautiful! Happy 4th to all my fellow Americans! Instead of having a BBQ or laying out on the beach, I decided to spend some time to sit down and write a blog post. I have discovered and tried many new makeup items this month that I'm excited to share with everyone!

The Covergirl Matte BB Cream is a new product this month and has quickly become my go-to face product for summer. If you're oily like me and want something lightweight for summer, this is it! It's a BB cream so it adds the hydration you need in the summer, but it still keeps me matte all day. The coverage is pretty good, I find it covers up my redness. I also love how light this feels on your skin, which exactly what it should be like during the summer!

The first lip product I loved this month is the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Gloss in So Cute. I love the shade because it's the perfect nude gloss that can be worn alone or over other lip products. It's very pigmented for a lipgloss, and it feels great on the lips. The one thing I hate is the applicator. I personally love doe-foot applicators, but this one has a brush so it can be a little difficult to apply. It has a slight vanilla scent which personally does not bother me. I basically love this for the color, which is great for all year round!

My go-to lipstick this has month has been L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in 800 Primrose. Everything about this is so amazing! It's very pigmented, creamy, and hydrating, which is all very important to me in a lipstick. The color is also perfect, and ideal for everything. For me, it looks like the perfect pink on my lips, and adds the right amount of shine.


A new product this month everyone (myself included) has been trying out is the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in 03. I got this adorable sample from Ulta and I'm so happy I had the chance to give it a try. For a brow pencil, this is great. The shape of the pencil allows you to use precision, and also fill in larger areas. I have the shade 03 which ended up being a great match for my brows. Also, hello! The packaging! Even the sample has adorable packaging. If you're looking for a new brow product that gives you a lot of control and precision, I highly recommend this one.

Honestly, I never thought I would buy an It Cosmetics brush because of the price, but the It Cosmetics Live Beauty Fully Complexion Powder Brush #225 really caught my eye. If there's one thing I have to say about this, it's that this is the softest brush I have ever used- which makes it great for applying powder products to the face. I chose this brush specifically because the shape of it is great for everything- blush, contour, setting the face with powder or setting the under eye. I am obsessed with this brush, but because of the price I'm not sure I'll be running to buy another anytime soon.

My last favorite was a big splurge for me this month, and that is the Lorac Pro 3 Palette. I have the original Lorac palette and love it! This one is no different! All of the shades are gorgeous, creamy and pigmented. Also, the range of shades in this is unlike anything else I own. I've loved playing with this palette this past month, and I can't wait to see what other looks I can create with it. Also, stayed tuned- a full review with swatches will be going up soon!

What are your beauty favorites this month?

  4. I get too jealous whenever I see anyone who managed to get their hands on any of Kylie's cosmetics - I'm literally desperate for that lipgloss, moreso since I've seen your swatch here - such a gorgeous colour! Also never used anything from Covergirl but everyone's raving about it so must put this BB cream on my list to try! X

  12. The Lorac Pro 3 doesn't jump at me as a unique palette. I have the Naked 3 which seems like a close enough comparison. I do love Lorac's formula though!!
