June Faves

Haaaay Haaaay. 

I am so pushing myself to do this post b/c blogging has been the furthest thing on my mind 
lately. I moved into a new apartment a week ago and I have been so busy trying to get 
settled and make my new place feel like home. I also got rid of all my old yucky college and post college furniture and decided to start over and it seems like all my time has been devoted to 
craigslist and consignment shops and figuring out how I want to decorate. 

I am planning to do a Home Decor post once I get everything in it's place and show you guys
some things I have bought and how I am decorating... or trying to. ha! 

Onto beauty goodness and the things that I used a lot in the month of June. Honestly, I don't 
have a ton to feature as make-up was really not on my mind at all last month. 

But, a few things I have been enjoying are... 

Clinque came out with a new "stay matte" foundation this summer that is oil free
and designed to control shine, oil, sweat and all the things we experience in the summer 

If you have combination to oily skin then this is a perfect formula for you! I have really 
loved wearing this foundation. I feel like it has a great formula that is not too thick or too matte 
where your skin looks kind of cakey. The other thing I like is that a little dab goes a long way. 

I typically use a buffing brush to work my foundation in, but with this I have just been applying
with my fingers and rubbing it in quickly so it doesn't dry too fast b/c it is a matte formula. 

I love it. Would definitely repurchase. 

 I have had this Wet n Wild "Comfort Zone" palette for quiet a while now, but
just recently started using it on a daily basis. I absolutely love the left side.  As you can tell
I have hit pan on that third color down (darker bronze). I have loved using that dark bronze color
all over my lid for a smoky brown look with a black liner. Very pretty! 

For a more natural soft look I like using the second color on left side that is labeled eyelid 
on the lid of my eye and using the darker bronze in my crease. 

Wet n Wild is super duber cheap and sold at most drugstores and I used to think their products
couldn't be any good b/c of the price, but I have been SO very impressed with their shadows. 
That is really the only thing I have tried, but I love this palette along with the "Silent Treatment"
trio. It's a gorgeous lilac/taupe with a dark brown. 

Not going to say much about this blush. I have mentioned it several times on here. It's Lorac
baked blush in shade Velvet Rope. It's just a gorgeous dusty rose color and it gives off a lot
of pigmentation b/c of being baked. I used this color a lot last month and found it looked 
really nice with a bit of a tan. 

Last year I bought a set from Mally on QVC. Mally is a celebrity make up artist and has her own 
line that she sells on QVC and her website. I had quit using this mascara for a while, but came back 
to it and really do love the formula and volume and length this baby gives. It's a more dry 
formula which I prefer b/c I find the wetter mascaras clump, smear, and are just in general more messy. 
If you are wanting to try out a new mascara along with some of her other products then I would check 
out her website. She has some awesome sets where you can try out several things and it's very 

I cannot believe it is already July!!!! Where is this year going?! Sheesh Louise. 

Hope to be back soon.... 
I am so tired of furniture shopping!!!!!
