A couple weeks ago I traveled to Texas for my mom's birthday party and spent several days being with my amazing family, here are some of the pictures from my mini-vacation (as you can tell I drank too much caffeine)... my travel vlog below!
Are we really that surprised it's taken me more than a week to post my June favorites (hello almost middle of July)?
This past month I've had a bunch of various favorites ranging from glittery sunscreen to a new mascara and everything in between...
This Benefit cheekathon palette is essentially the best thing I've ever bought.
It comes with 5 blushes/bronzers which typically range about $30 each... and the whole set cost $58 ($145 value). That's a pretty amazing deal especially since each powder is full size.
It has taken me forever to find a face powder that is as great as this one.
This is the Make Up For Ever pro finish pressed powder ($36) in the shade 117 because I'm pale af.
This stuff acts as a great setting powder or light/medium coverage when going without liquid foundations.
The Tarte Tarteist lash paint ($23) has become a top contender for my mascara favorite along with Benefit's they're real.
This does a really good job of lengthening your lashes and giving them a bit of a volume kick too. Really, what more can you ask for.
Urban Decay's 24/7 glide on eye pencils ($20) are life.
These are in the colors 'Corrupt' and 'Roach' (UD always has interesting names to say the least).
The thing I love about these are that they're super easy to use... they glide really easily and the pigmentation is on point. Thumbs up UD, these will always be a classic eyeliner go-to for me.
Liquid Lipsticks, y'all.
These babies stay on my lips forever, and the pigmentation/formulation of each is basically heaven.
Here are some other, more "summer-y" favorites.
My sister gave me this sunscreen as part of my birthday present... and IT HAS GLITTER IN IT. Plus, it smells like strawberries and I'm practically still a six year old so this is perfect for me. You can find it here for $18.95. Also, the company's name is Glitter Tots... so this is totally for children, but whatever.
The next thing is Vanilla puff powder by Lush. Y'all, this stuff is a miracle worker during hot, humid summer days. When I bought it an employee said she used it while wearing skirts or dresses to prevent chafing... or for under-boob sweat (ladies, you already know).
The only thing is... this is no longer available (boo), but Lush does have other dusting powders like this one ($8.95) that smell like jasmine. I'm not sure if the vanilla scent was just seasonal, or if they've just completely discontinued.. if you know, let me know in the comments!
