June 2011 Favorites

I've been so busy lately that I totally forgot about my June favorites post! I only had a few favorites that I found myself constantly using. Let's take a look:

MAC Lustre Drops in Sun Rush:

I purchased this last Summer and fell in love with it. It's described as "liquid bronzer" and that's basically what it is. It's water-based and applies easily. I love this when I'm going for the dewy look we all love in the Summer. It's a pretty natural-looking highlighter with a shimmering finish.

Retail: $19.50 at MAC

Hourglass Film Noir Lash Laquer:

I wasn't sure if I was gonna like this or not. I actually find myself reaching for it in the morning once I've applied my mascara. It reminds me of old Hollywood glamour with their big, bold and glossy lashes. Kinda like Rita Hayworth...

She was so gorgeous -Sigh- I love old Hollywood. They definitely knew how to do it. See her lashes? 

Or what about Marilyn Monroe? Yup.

This lacquer kind of does that. It takes your lashes to the next level and gives them a glossy shine.

Retail: $28 at Sephora

Too Faced The Bronzed & The Beautiful:

From Left to Right: Snow Bunny, Sun Bunny & Pink Leopard

I love that this set comes with three of Too Faced's best selling bronzers. Depending on my look--I can opt for a lighter bronzer or a darker one. + it comes with a mini kabuki brush. Too Faced just launched a new version of this palette that comes with four shades including a gold shimmery highlight. I considered getting it, but if you already have this, you don't need it. 

Retail: $38 at Sephora

NYX Cosmetics Trio Eyeshadow in Anti Diva:

I think this trio is perfect for the warmer months. You can create the perfect blue summer eye. I like using the blue on my lid, orange/gold in my crease and the white under my brow. Gorgeous. I'm thinking about buying a few more of these trios from NYX. They're such good quality and super affordable.

Retail: $8 at NYX Cosmetics

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare: Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel

I'm obsessed with this peel. I try to use it everyday, but I'm lazy (honestly!) I love the way my skin looks & feels once I've done one of these. This pads helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, helps with acne scars/dark spots, balances oil, tones skin and increase clarity and radiance. It also helps to calm redness, sensitivity and irritation. I noticed a difference in my skin the very first time I used it. I can see that my skin was brighter, less red and felt smoother. I definitely recommend everyone to try these. You won't regret it!

Retail: $80 for a 30 day supply at Sephora

What were you loving this past June?
