Favorites : May & June 2017


Hi guys, thank you for stopping by. I thought it good to combine my May and June favorites as not much changed. Cause my life was so busy, especially at work, I did not wear a lot of makeup. You will see in this favorite's post everything is about "high impact" and "quick and easy". Let's jump into it.


African Extacts Rooibos 3in1 Facial Wipes from the Purifying Range

Not only was the makeup kept to a minimal, but the skincare routine was also just next to non existing. I know that is not very good, especially for a beauty blogger, but these wipes were my saving grace. Not only did it remove the last bit of makeup that was left after a long day, but it also felt gentle on the skin and was the perfect companion with my face wash. I enjoy these wipes cause they are saturated just enough to be effective and they smell awesome, but the biggest reason is that they do not leave my skin feeling dry and they are affordable.


Temptu Liquid Glow Highlighter

This is a stunning product and I am so glad that I received it in my Boxycharm box. This is a liquid highlighter that can be used a couple of ways. You can either mix it in your foundation to create an all glow or you can use it as a base for powder highlight for when you want that booming highlight, or you can use it as is just on the high points of your face. It truly is a stunning highlight, especially for my textured skin. I found that when applying it with a dry PUR sponge (received in the April box) I get the best result.


Highlight & Contour Palette by IBY Beauty

This palette is extremely versatile and I have used it tons this past few weeks. Its great for highlighting and setting cream products, but the contour shades is what made my heart very happy. There is a nice bronzing shade that bring color back to my face and two great shades to use on the eyes. Now I am not great at contouring, but these shades are brilliant as a wash of color all over the lid with some eyeliner and loads of mascara. This helped to get an eye look out together so quickly. 


Clinique High Lengths Mascara

Towards the end of last year I bought a starter kit with four mini high end mascaras. I have been working my way through all of them, this is the second last one and all of them ended up in a favorites post so far. This mascara had a kind off a learning curve to it. The way the wand is bend make it difficult to reach all the lashes, especially the bottom lashes, but once you figure out how to bend your hand, this is turning out to be an awesome mascara. The combs on the wand adds great separation and length.    


Dr Paw Paw Tinted Peach Pink Balm

When I first got this balm I was very intrigued as everyone and their neighbor was talking about it and I could not wait to start testing this balm out. Immediately after my first use I felt slightly disappointed. Not because this was a bad product, but rather that it did not perform as well as I thought it would. Thinking back I am not sure what I expected, but I kept on using it and these last few weeks I can understand why it is such a fantastic product. Just because it does not transform your lips into the likes of Angelina Jolie's does not mean its not great. I used it in conjunction with a lip liner and it just work perfectly! 


L.A.Gitl Lip Liner in Mauve

This is the liner I have been talking about in the previous photo. With the combination of the Dr Paw Paw balm with this liner is just awesomeness in a tube. The liner provides the natural but evident color and the balm provides the shine and hydration. I love the combo and in winter with dry lips, its even better.

These were the goodies that kept me going during those busy days, what was the products that made your heart happy this month?

Love ya
Melanie

  1. That lipliner is so pretty! also that Temptu highlighter is BOMB!

    My NYX palette is like that contour palette, except plus a highlighter so I also some days use it for everything. Setting powder, eyes, highlight. It's so versatile to have a palette like that in your arsenal!
