June 2015 Favorites


It’s the end of June and that means it’s time for another monthly favorite! 🙂 So without further ado, let’s get started!


1. NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in 720A Sunny

I’ve been loving this bronzer because it gives skin that perfect summer sun-kissed glow!

Because I have naturally fair skin, I burn easily, so I tend to apply a lot of sunscreen whilst steering clear of direct sun exposure. I may be protecting my skin, but during the summer time, I may look a little too pale, so I love using bronzers to add just a pop of color to my cheeks! 🙂


What I love about this bronzer is the matte finish and the vibrancy of the color! A little bit of product (and I really mean, just a tiny little), really goes a long way, so it’ll last super long! A big plus – this bronzer is also a perfect contouring powder, making it a two-in-one product that’s also very affordable (at about ~$3)!


2. NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien

This lip pencil is absolutely amazing! The rose pink color is so vibrant yet matte, making it such a perfect lip color for the summer! 🙂

It’s also such a soft and creamy formula, despite its ‘pencil’ form. With almost a lip balm texture, this lip pencil makes lips so buttery soft, not at all like traditional lipsticks that tend to accentuate dried and chapped lips.

This lip pencil can be applied directly, but I prefer to use a lip brush because it gives such a nice and precise application 🙂

For a softer look, I like to dab at the edges with my finger, blurring harsh lines and giving a very subtle yet youthful look!


3. Clarins Double Fix’ Mascara

This mascara sealant is a summer makeup staple, and I’ve quickly adopted this into my daily makeup routine! 🙂

Mascara is one of my favorites since big, voluminous lashes always look so glamorous! On lazy days, I’ll be okay with just BB Cream, eyebrows, and mascara 🙂

However, with the hotter days coming, that means sweat, which also means eyeliner or mascara smudges 😦 I’ve tried a lot of different mascaras, be it high-end to drugstore brands, but no matter how ‘waterproof’ these mascaras claim to be, they always tend to smudge a little when the weather heats up.

With this sealant, though, no matter what mascara you wear (be it non-waterproof, waterproof, etc), it won’t budge or smudge at all! 🙂

Though it’s a bit on the pricey side for a sealant, it really does wonders and makes any mascara perfect! 🙂


4. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – Original

Another favorite this month is my go-to eyeshadow primer, which I’m pretty sure is a HG product for many of you as well! 🙂

The Urban Decay Primer Potion helps with oily eyelids, making eyeshadows and eyeliner last longer throughout the day, especially in the summer!

Even after being out all day (even after sweating), my eye makeup looks so fresh, like I just applied it!


5. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

And lastly, my favorite book for this month has got to be Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl! 🙂

It’s such a spectacularly written book, with the perfect amount of mystery, suspense, thrill, and psychological twist! Flynn really knows how to work her narrative with beautiful characterization, and the way she jumps so seamlessly between points-of-views is amazing!

It was a semi-slow start, but once the story got going, I couldn’t stop turning the pages!

The book revolves around the ‘murder’ of Amy Dunne, Nick Dunne’s wife. The story follows the investigation of the case, but things aren’t really what they seem.

The thing that’s the most compelling about this book is that there are two varying points of views, both Nick (the husband) and Amy (his wife), and it’s up to the reader to figure out who’s more trustworthy 🙂

I’d definitely recommend this book to those who are looking for some summer reading!

So this completes my list of June favorites! Let me know what you all enjoyed this month! 🙂 And thank you so much for stopping by!
