Seriously we are in July already I cannot belive how fast this year is flying by, I have even been seeing Fall and some Christmas decorations popping up in stores and it will be here before you know it. The weather down in the south has been great so far this summer, hot but not as humid as last year so it is bearable to be outside which is nice, I hope all of you are enjoying the season. I have a few great items to show you that I have been obsessed with over the past month so I will hush up now and get right into the picks.

June 2013 Favorite Things

 
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle: If I had to make a list of my holy grail makeup favorites Mac Mineralize skinfinish would be on it. I have been obsessed with this general product for at least 5 years and own several variations of it. 

Soft & Gentle is a shade I like to use for highlighting, a subtle shimmer that is universally flattering for a variety of skin tones. 

Sedona Lace Jumbo Fan Brush FB01: This is one of my favorite brushes from Sedona Lace and it is the perfect brush for applying powder highlighters.  With a very affordable retail price of $12.95 all my makeup loving gals need to add this brush to your collection. 

NYX Matte Lipstick in Euro Trash: One of the main reasons I love this lipstick is not only the subtle pink tone but baby this formula is bulletproof. 

I wore this all day and it didn’t budge and I did not need to reapply it, even through several meals and drinks. 

Supergoop SPF 30 Sunscreen Serum: Now we all know how important it is to protect our skin from the sun. I have to admit I was bad in the past about using sunscreen on my face, a lot of them leave a white case and the thick formulas would break me out. I am head over heels in love with this sunscreen from supergoop. The formula is more of a serum, it is lightweight and absorbs completely while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. This is the only sunscreen that doesn’t break me out, I actually use this year round. 

    Dior Au Natural Nude Look Palette: I have been reaching for this palette more than any other lately. It’s perfect for summer and my go to when I need to do a quick 5 minute face. 

    This palette is an all in one containing eyeshadow, lipgloss and bronzer and the colors will work on just about anyone. 

    Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist: I am all about a face mist, especially in the summer although I do use them year round. Perfect way to re-hydrate and freshen up a face mid-day and great for when your traveling. This face mist from Juice beauty contains rosehip, ylang ylang, grapeseed oil and antioxidant juices. It’s light not sticky and wont smear your makeup. 

      Lucas Papaw Ointment: I was first introduced to paw paw ointment back in December when I did a holiday swap with an Australian Blogger and now I can’t imagine not having it around. This ointment is like a miracle in a tube and everyone should have some. The uses are endless. Papaw is actually Papaya, yes the fruit.  Papaw is great for Cuts, Burns, Dry skin, Rough Cuticles etc but Baby let me tell you this is the best thing I have ever used for dry lips. Available on amazon.com yes everyone needs this in their medicine cabinet.

         


        Tarte Achiote Natural Cheek Tint: Universally flattering this is a shimmering pink peach colored cream blush.

        Natural look and long lasting. Also a perfect blush for summer when wearing minimal makeup. 


        Shimmer Nail Polish: You have seen two posts recently from me with some Shimmer Swatches but anytime I wear a nail polish more than two times in one month I call it a favorite and I reached for Shimmer Karen a few times in June.  Beautiful multi-colored glitter top coat Wendy pairs well with a wide variety of colors. 

                                                                  




          Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express: I think I mentioned once before I have an obsession with foundations, well I am also obsessed with Mascara. I can never have enough so I am always buying new ones. I love the curved brush on this one from Maybelline it makes my lashes look amazing and its affordable win win. 

            What I’m listening to: A few songs have been on repeat in my car lately and yes I am not ashamed to admit I am a Mariah Carey fan. Music for me is one of my great escapes. In June I was loving: 

            • Mariah Carey feat. Miguel: Beautiful 
            • Robin Thicke feat. Pharrell & T.I.: Blurred Lines, hey hey hey this song is often stuck in my head. 
            • Emeli Sande: I love the whole album “Our Version of Events”from this refreshing Scottish artist, but Next to Me might be my favorite song from this album. 
             

            Last Item on my list for June these mixed nut blends from Planters. Always looking for healthier snack options and these nut blend satisfies. The NUT•rition Bone Health Mix is my favorite variety and contains almonds, granola clusters, yogurt-covered raisins, peaches, raspberries and cashews. 
              Whew that was a sort of a long list. Have you tried any of these items, I would love to hear what you think of my picks and what some of your favorite things were in June.

              This age defy moisturizer helps to replenish and firm your skin with a combination of certified organic juices, with antioxidants and reduces wrinkles with firming peptides.  This moisturizer keeps skin hydrated without feeling heavy or greasy, takes a few minutes to absorb.
              Juice Beauty Green Apple Nutrient Eye Cream
              Eye Cream to help hydrate, firm and brighten the eye area, while also helping to reduce dark spots. Unfortunately this eye cream wasn’t for me.  The consistency was light and did hydrate my eye area however my skin had a bad reaction to it that caused my eye area to swell and break out, I do have somewhat sensitive skin. I discontinued use of the eye cream after the second use so I cannot fully review the results. I was actually surprised I had a reaction to the eye cream since I used the moisturizer with no problems. 
              Juice Beauty Green Apple Age Defy Hand Cream
              This is a nice and rich moisturizing and soothing hand cream that contains Aloe, Jojoba and Shea Butter.  The age-defying Vitamin C will help minimize fine lines and the organic fruit acids diminish hyperpigmentation and peptides help to firm.  I really liked this hand cream, rich but not greasy and absorbed immediately, left my hands moisturized and soft.  All the products had a nice green apple scent but for me the scent was most noticeable in the hand cream. It was a light scent not overpowering.
