Wow what a busy, busy month for me! I've been all over the place doing a million things this month. I guess I could say I have finally settled in to my new place but my life has been nothing but settled! When surrounded with distractions, it's hard to stick to the routine. My plan is to try to get back into posting more regularly but until then, please bear with me. ^_^” This month's favorites are mostly new stuff but there is an old favorite item included as well. Ready to see? Then, let's get started!
❶ Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist’s Palette (US$55 | Sephora)
I don't know what is it about this palette that I can't seem to stop using! I have a couple of new palettes that I probably should be testing but I always find myself grabbing this one. I am absolutely crazy in love with African Violet which is such a gorgeous, gorgeous pink purple color with a stunning golden sheen. It's also such a super versatile shade as you can pretty much pair it with any colors in the palette and it will still look good! This palette is truly a no-brainer and if you haven't checked it out yet, I highly recommend you do so ASAP! For a complete review including EOTD, head over to my review on this page.
❷ MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation (US$32 | Nordstrom)
Finally a medium-to-full coverage, satin-matte foundation that lasts through heat and humidity! I have nothing but positive experience with this MAC foundation. True that it isn't the easiest base to apply to achieve a natural finish (I use a Beautyblender and really take my time blending it into my skin) but I think it's worth the extra effort. I don't mind spending a little longer during application to ensure that it stays on my face for a really long time until I take it off. It doesn't ever transfer or slide off my face even it's hot out (and it's hot out every single day around here, hmmph!!). For a thorough review, check out my full post right here.
❸ Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Bittersweet (US$26 | Nordstrom // Thailand ฿1,000 | Sephora)
Finding a bright purple blush is hard but finding a bright purple blush that is wearable is even harder! So I guess you can imagine my excitement when I laid my eyes (and hands) on this beaut! Even if you are not a purple blush wearer, I still encourage you to try the excellent formula. It's ultra pigmented, buildable, blendable, and with a matte finish that lasts and lasts. Urban Decay has again created yet another exceptional product with a reasonable price! For a complete review including FOTD, visit this page.
❹ La Mer The Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid (US$85 | Nordstrom)
I'm on a full on sunscreen mode right now because my current work desk is facing and literally about 10 feet away from a clear glass window. So even though I work indoors, I still have to apply my sunscreen deliberately. My June's sunscreen of choice is this uber expensive one from La Mer that I forgot I had! I've been falling in love with it all over again this month. It is a broad spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen with a creamy, lightweight texture that sinks in quickly without leaving a white cast on the skin. Still not crazy about the scent the second time around but luckily it vanishes quickly! More review on this right here.
❺ Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil (US$95 | Nordstrom)
Last but not least! My absolute favorite product of the month is this gorgeous, most luxurious Shimmering Body Oil by Tom Ford! I wasn't even a body oil person to begin with but now I am a total convert! Not only does the oil feel and smell super luxe, it also contains plenty of ultra-fine gold and platinum shimmers that will turn your skin from dull and average to stunning and glistening in seconds! Unfortunately the product is sold out online everywhere last I checked (except Amazon, with crazy markups of course). Do check with your local Tom Ford counter, though, because this item is totally worth tracking down in my opinion. Read here for my full review!
What are your favorites this month? :)
