June Beauty Favorites

I’ve discovered and fallen in love with a boatload of products over the past month and a half. I literally could not wait to share these products with you. Some of these are life-changing. Or, at the very least, skin-changing. P.S. I’m now suffering through the painfully long upload times of 1080p HD – so do this girl a favor and watch in full HD if your connection supports it. ;-)

    I always love watching your videos with my morning coffee. You’ve helped me find some of my favorite beauty products. Thanks girl :-)

    So I ran out and finally grabbed the Rimmel gloss (I was waiting to see which colors you recommended) and I’m 50/50 on my like/dislike. It instantly clung to a chapped part I didn’t know existed (lol that sounds so gross) but the Stellar is lovely and feels so light. I put some of the Nivea balm on to combat the problem. So I would say if you have chronic chapped lips it could be a problem. I’ve been wearing the Revlon BB cream for an hour and so far its good.

      Oh, are you trying the Revlon photoready bb cream as well?

  • Lauren

    You’re adorable! Always thoroughly enjoy all of your videos and posts! I am really curious to see what you thought of the lumene bb cream! I’d love to find a drugstore brand that could serve as an emergency back-up for when my skin79 runs out and I’m awaiting a shipment, or to use on weekends just to go out to run errands, etc.

    Thanks for always putting so much time and thought into your posts…most every beauty product that I own is a result of of your reviews!

      I like the Lumene bb cream however it is quite luminous and makes me quite shiny within a few hours. I think it’s the Vitamin C, it always does that to me for some reason.

        Thanks for letting me know! Might not be the best for me as I’ve got more combo skin and am prone to getting a little oily as the day goes on! Thank you!!

    I’m so thrilled to see you have the Hourglass foundation in your favorites. It’s been on my list of products to try since reading a Cut article about it but wasn’t sure whether or not to trust the hype. Also pretty stoked to try out some Michael Todd products as I’m getting pretty sick of the whole Proactiv system. So needless to say, I would love to see a skin care video!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Great favorites video. After doing some research, I ordered the Michael Todd Discovery Set for normal/combination skin – can’t wait to sample a little of each product. Have you tried the Mario Badescu products? I’ve been looking for a good regime for “summer skin” that needs a little more pore unclogging and cleansing – hoping the charcoal mask will do the trick. Also love JM colognes, especially blue agave and cacao!
