June 2011 Favorites

Hey guys! Here's a review of my favorite products in this month!

1. Coppertone Ultra Guard Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 - Since I have a sun allergy/heat allergy on my arms I have to wear a high SPF lotion every day. I really like this because it not only protects me from the sun, it's also moisturizing. It hasn't made me itchy or cause me to have any signs of tanning.

2. Rimmel London Glam Eye Mono Eyeshadow in Glam Ice - This is an GREAT white eyeshadow to have. It has amazing pigmentation and goes on very smooth and buttery. I love this a lot!

3. Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in Antiqued Gold - I love this polish! When I first tried it on I was very disappointed because it would not shatter when I applied it. But after experimenting with it I found out the best way to apply this is by dabbing it in sections. It is so beautiful and flattering! I will have a pic of my mani with this soon.

4. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in Blue-Away - This is a great opaque light blue! One coat is all you need.

5. Milani Nail Polish in Paradise Pink - I absolutely adore this nail polish. It's a really light pink similar to OPI Mod About You or Essie Fiji. It makes you look tan. It is so beautiful and flattering! It's opaque in 2 coats.

6. Revlon Nail Enamel in Minted - This is one of the first Revlon nailpolishes that I tried that I did not have any issues with. The color came nice and opaque in 2-3 coats and dried well. I like how the color is a more green than Essie Mint Candy Apple.

7. CoverGirl Intense Shadow Blast Eyeshadow primers in Beige Blaze 800 - I've been using this primer a lot lately and I really love it. It makes my eyeshadows stay on the whole day without any creasing. I will be reviewing this soon!

8. E.L.F. All Over Color Stick in Pink Lemonade - When I first tried this product I didn't like it because I was using it wrong. I also didn't like it because I thought it was a bit too sticky/creamy. I figured out the best way to use it is to swipe it on your cheeks and blend it with a stippling brush. The color looks amazing and is very long lasting.

9. Revlon PhotoReady Foundation in Golden Beige 008 - I revisited one of my old product and I can say I really love it. It gives a great glow. Read my review here.

10. Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine in Nude Glow - This color isn't really a nude, it's more or a neutral sunkissed bronze. I really like this becuase it makes my lips look natural yet fuller. I will be reviewing this soon.

11. Milani Baked Blush in Red Vino - I love these baked blushes! I like this one because it's very pigmented and gives me a great glow!

12. L'Oreal HIP Concentrated Shadow Duo in Shady - This is a great shadow duo for an everyday look. The eyeshadows are matte. I really liked this because it makes me look natural yet polished. This is a must have!

13. Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in 002 Crystal Lilac - When I first heard about this color I didn't understand all the hype about it. But after I tried it, I really do like it! It gives me a nice light pink sheen on my lips, kind of like the lips of girls in hiphop videos (LOL). But it really really do love this!

14. Sonia Kashuk Pointed Foundation Brush - This is an amazing foundation brush. It blends my foundation very nice a smooth. It is great for blending is small hard to reach areas like your hair line and lips/nose area.

I hope this was helpful! More reviews will be coming up!

NEW Great Pinks & Perfect Nudes from Revlon (Pic Heavy)

Hey guys! I wanted to share a haul I did in April. I absolutely LOVE all these colors and recommend all of them. I bought them during a Revlon sale in Rite Aid. Here they are:

So lets start the review. Also the Rimmel lipstick in this picture is Sunset which has been discontinued so I don't want to include this in the review.

Revlon Primrose (668) - this lipstick is a creme finish. It is a pink-lilac shade. I was surprised when I wore it on my lips it looked much lighter than I thought but I still found it wearable. It can be sheer and dry compared to other Revlon Creme lipsticks. It's still a nice unique everyday pink.

Revlon Icy Nude (002)
- THIS IS MY HG* NUDE LIPSTICK!!! Perfect nude if you are around a MAC NC40. It isn't as creamy as the other colorburst lipsticks because it has glitter particles but it does not show up on my lips. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this lipstick!

Revlon Smoked Peach (013) - this is a nice BRIGHT peachy orange. It is matte finish but goes on very creamy and smooth which is what I like about it the most. I like it but I have to tone it down a bit. ***note spelling is Smoked not Smokey (oops XD)

Revlon Sky Pink (012) - this is a matte light/medium pink. It goes on pigmented and creamy but is also on the bright side. It's color is similar to MAC Snob. I like it and recommend it.

Revlon Timeless Nude (512) - THIS IS MY HG* NUDE LIPGLOSS!!! It is a Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze and a pinky-nude-tan. It is very pigmented but can be drying. I have to reapply it often. When worn on my lips it is the most perfectest nude!! I LOVE THIS. I recommend this if you are a skintone around MAC NC40 since it is hard for us to find that perfect nude!

Top: Revlon Timeless Nude (512)
Bottom: Revlon Primrose (668), Revlon Sky Pink (012),
Revlon Icy Nude (002),
Revlon Smoked Peach (013)

Please feel free to recommend any other great pinks and nudes.
Thanks for reading :)

Estee Lauder Pink-Teal Shadowstick Duo Review

Hey guys! I normally don't purchase Estee Lauder products but I have tried some samples my mom has gotten with her Lauder purchases. After seeing Temptalia's review on this product, I was so hyped, I purchased it the next day.

This is a limited edition product from their Bronze Goddess Soleil Summer Color 2011. What really made me purchase the product was that it was $20 and was being compared to the Urban Decay Jumbo pencils

I really like the colors of these two. They are both unique for a jumbo pencil! But my favorite is the pink side. It is a rosey pink with the prettiest golden sheen. It looks mostly gold when I wear it since I have tan skin, but it still looks awesome!

I like that they are long wearing and hasn't creased on me. Here's some swatches:

Estee Lauder Pink-Teal Shadowstick Duo with Flash

Estee Lauder Pink-Teal Shadowstick Duo with Natural Lighting

Thanx for reading! :)
