Can you believe that June is over and it is already time for Monthly Favorites?! I feel as if I just did a favorites! This month has been full of drugstore buys. From a new eyeshadow palette to falling in love with a lip gloss, it was definitely a makeup month.
Let’s start with skincare. Recently, when I was in TJMaxx I spotted the Super Facialist by Una Brennan on the shelf. Right away I recognized it as being a drugstore favorite of many of the beauty gurus I watch from England. I grabbed it up and I am so happy I did. This cleansing oil is even better than the Simple Micellular Water at removing makeup. It brightens and smooths my skin while gently breaking down and removing all my makeup. Perfection. The other skincare item I have been testing out this month is a deluxe sample of the Tarte Maracuja Oil. I have always heard that you can combat oil with oil so that’s what I did this month. After I finish my normal nighttime skincare routine I switched out my Nivea Soft Moisturizer with the Maracuja Oil and I can really tell a difference. My T-zone doesn’t get near as oil as it did before which is super helpful in these super months!
Now for the makeup! I discovered a new foundation in the drugstore and it is great. The Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation is a great foundation for summer. It is light and very blendable. It blends right into my skin and it isn’t at all heavy. I actually like the matching concealer for it even better though. This concealer is one of the best drugstore concealers I have tried. It is light, which is perfect for summer. It doesn’t melt off or crease either which is amazing.
Bronzers are amazing in the summer. They may as well be my favorite summer makeup product. I spotted the Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Walmart recently and knew I had to try it out and it is absolutely amazing. It is the perfect shade for that perfect bronzed glow! Plus it is waterproof!
Ahhh… A new palette. I haven’t bought a new palette in forever! Especially a palette that is under $10! This Wet-N-Wild Comfort Eye Shadow Palette has been raved about and raved about by some of the beauty gurus I watch. It caught my eye and I new I just had to give it a go. I am so glad I did. It is amazing for the price. It is even better than some higher end palettes I have watched before.
The biggest discovery this month are these Covergirl lip glosses. They are the perfect non-sticky lip glosses I have ever found. I’m so in love with them. They keep my lips moisturized and hydrated while they provide the perfect amount of color to my lips! They are lip smackin’ good!
This month has definitely been a month for drugstore makeup! I have no idea what July will hold but it is my birthday month so I’m sure it will be amazing!
