I can’t believe that June is coming to an end! Seriously, time flies like crazy. In the wonderful world of makeup we already start to see fall collections making their debut. Why! Why? Let us enjoy the mint greens, the corals, the barbie pinks! Let us be bronze goddess for a while longer. So without further ado, here are my Hits and Misses for June 2015.
♥Smashbox #SHAPEMATTERS palette (you can read my full review HERE). I’ve read some really bad critics on this palette and I can understand them if you are someone with a darker complexion. For my pale self, this palette is to die for. That is going to sound funny (maybe a little shallow) but everytime (more everyday since I received it) I’ve played with it, I find myself looking in the mirror during the day and I feel pretty (you all know what I mean; we all have bad makeup days and very good ones). Each product in this palette is perfect for me.
♥Lise Watier RIVAGES collection (The eyeshadow palette & the bronzer). The surprise of the month for me. Lise Watier is not usually my brand of choice but these 2 products have totally taken me by surprise. You can read my full review HERE. The palette looks like nothing really, but it’s a total hidden gem. I’m not kidding – I used this beauty so much that there already are some dents in many of these eyeshadows. Now on to the bronzer – this little number have been sold out everywhere for good reasons, it totally delivers what a good bronzer should do : add glow and some structure to your face (structure, not to be confused with contour because this is definitely not a contour product).
Note: Summer collections always mean that very soon, you will see big sales on the remaining items. For this RIVAGES collection, you HAVE to buy the palette.
Note #2: The Rivages bronzer makes a hell of a good transition shade for your eye makeup look (Double Duty calls for a double yay!)
♥Dr. Hauschka Lip Care Stick. I have dry lips! We know all to well that this is a problem with all the trendy Matte lipsticks popping everywhere. I feel like Dr. Hauschka’s Stick really moisturizes my lips; it feel like a treatment on my lips rather than just clear gloss like some products.
♥NYC Expert Last Lip Color in 446 (Smooch). For less than 2$ you cannot beat this formula (You can read my full review HERE) and particularly in this shade, which is so gorgeous. I’m telling you this stuff is almost too good to be true. Highly recommended !!!
♥Sparitual nail polish in Winds of Change. This was a new find for me, I’ve never heard of this VEGAN brand before. Since we all know that nail polishes stays on my hands for a mere 24 hours, I’ve been loving that sheer pink/coral/golden sparkles colour makes it tough to notice when it starts to chip (yay!). I just love it !
♥Josie Maran Argan Illuminator. I’ve been mixing a pump of this product with my foundation to add dewiness. As much as I don’t like to use this as my highlighters I totally love the subtle effect it gives my skin when mixed. On the plus side this formula is not greasy at all.
♥Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Brushes (#200 & 201). I have profess in the past my love for Real Techniques regular brushes so when Beard Man went to Ulta and the Bold Metals brushes were on sale, I’ve put these two on the list. As much as I think the design is really pretty, the brushes themselves are just OK. I don’t feel the same love as for their regular counterparts. They are nicely made and everything but I’m just NEVER reaching for them in my day-to-day makeup routine. 😢Sadly not a fan!
Have a great Weekend
