June 2017 Top 5

Better late that never I guess. Here's my top 5 for June!

IT Cosmetics Vitality Cheek Flush Powder Blush Stain

I've mentioned these blushes before in Magical in Mauve and Matte Sweet Apple. I keep saying that I was going to get the other two shades Radiant in Rose and Pretty in Peony during an Ulta sale but I always forgot. I finally remembered to get these when I made a couple of exchanges at Ulta. First I got Radiant in Rose then Pretty in Peony. Now that I have all 4 I have been using the constantly. They are fantastic blushes. They are pigmented but not scary pigmented where you have to be careful in applying them. Also these last all day on my cheeks. These shades go with just about any makeup look. I've enjoyed these so much, it has made me go through my blushes and clear a lot out my stash. If you're look for some good blushes to use and you do want or need a lot of crazy color then check these out. If your cheeks "eat" blush and your blush doesn't last all day then check these out! I cannot say enough good things about these blushes.

Wen Summer Tropical Paradise

I haven't talked about Wen in a while because I've been trying other products. But when I saw the new summer seasonal I caved lol. I picked up the Summer Cleanse & Treat 3-Piece Kit w/ Loofah that was a One Time Only and it smells so good! It smells almost as good as Summer Mango Coconut. I've enjoyed all three pieces in the set. My hair has felt awesome and smelled really good! If they come out with a fragrance in this next summer, I just might get it. *shifty eyes*

NYX Nude Matte Eyeshadows

I have four of these eyeshadows in Blame it on Midnight, Betrayal, Underneath It All and Dance The Tides. They are all brown shades. They stay in the makeup I use for my daily makeup items. I have used them on their own or with palettes that needed a little extra help. These shadows are smooth, pigmented and super easy to blend. I'm tempted to pick up some of the other deeper shades. If you're looking for some nice matte eyeshadows then check these ones out.

NYX Lip Pencils

Annnnd more NYX! I mentioned in my last post that I'm done with Colour Pop lip liners and back to NYX! I have really been enjoying their Suede Lip Pencils and I have my ultimate favorite Espresso back in rotation. They are traditional pencils that are easy to use. I don't have problems over lining my lips, the color range is awesome and you can beat their prices in comparison to high end lip liners.

Serious Skincare A Cream SPF 30

I wasn't going to mention this at first. Only because the tube I have is jacked up lol. But that goes to show that I am using the product. I lucked on a better that a BOGO deal when I ordered from HSN and got two more tubes. I'm going to say that I think I have found my holy grail SPF moisturizer! I have already mentioned how I love their regular A Cream. I think I got my first A Cream SPF 30 in a kit. I have been using this nonstop. It goes on nicely and doesn't make my skin greasy like other SPFs I have tried. Also it doesn't interfere with my makeup or leave a white cast on my skin. So score!

BONUS: Cetaphil Makeup Remover Wipes

I was going to mention this as a surprise product but it is an actual favorite for June. I randomly ordered these from Ulta. Poking around on their website is just as bad as wandering around the store. I tried their Cleansing Wipes and they were just ok. These I really really like. They are a nice size, they are nicely moisturized and they feel good on the skin. My skin feels super soft after using these to remove my makeup. They are kind of pricey at Ulta. So I'll be waiting to see if they go on sale or price compare at other retailers.

A couple items I did not like in June were the Sheseido Facial Cottons and the Oleavine ThreaTree Therapeutic Scrub.

Shiseido Facial Cotton

I've always been curious about the Sheseido Facial Cottons. Tons of people have said that they are great and better than the ones you can get at the drugstore. I noticed that Sephora has a 40 count for $5. I said why not and added to them my order. Ummm I don't get the hype. They are soft but they may be too soft. I used them with my Neutrogena toner or liquid exfoliant. Every time I used them, bits of cotton were left on my face. I've never had this problem with the cotton rounds I get from CVS, Ulta or Walgreens. So to me they are not worth it. I rarely write reviews on websites but I did on Sephora for these.

Oleavine ThreaTree Therapeutic Scrub

I've been on the hunt for a new body scrub. I wanted something good for body breakouts. Tea tree oil popped in my head so I took to Amazon and came across this scrub. I ordered 2 when they had a promo going on. It's a very fine scrub which I kinda liked at first but then it was too fine that it didn't really "scrub" much. I'm a weirdo and love the scent of Tea Tree. This however also has mint in it and the mint scent turned me off. I said I was going to see if there was a Tea Tree only version but I haven't looked. I may check with some other brands. I gave the other tube I had to a friend for her or her husband to try.

If something is off or doesn't make sense then my bad. I've been trying to get this done but life keeps happening and then I have another work trip this week. Plus I've been feeling kinda of blah towards blogging lately. But I wanted to get this up before I left. And there you have it!

TTFN - ta ta for now!
