Top 5 – June


I’ve been feeling a little spendy for the month of June, and for the first time in a long time all 5 of my monthly favourites are new products in June. Much of my shopping has been to replace those products I refuse to go without (if you saw my last ’empties’ post you’d understand the dire need to spend money), but many of these products are new to the stash and have been on my shopping list for a long time.

The first product I purchased this month was the long-desired Anastasia Brow Wiz. I know I ranted about the price recently, and how there are several brow products out there that are just as good, but I caved. And I’m so glad I did. I love how natural my brows still look after filling them in with this. Alongside that I splurged and spur of the moment picked up the Smashbox Contour Kit. I don’t own any other contouring products and have wanted to give them a go for a long time, but have always been overwhelmed by the amount of products in the palettes. Smashbox sold me with simplicity (good job Smashbox). I’m still playing around with the three shades, but it’s an easy to use, simple contour palette and I’m loving it!

After posting a rant about my undying love for the Maybelline 24h Color Tattoo eyeshadows, I had to go get more. I picked up two more of the ‘leather effect’ line and have been loving the shade Vintage Plum. It’s a light, simple lilac shade that is perfect for everyday wear. Since they’re really buildable you can have a light shimmer of plum, or dark and bold plum eyes!

And last but certainly not least, the two lipsticks. I may have gone overboard recently. I finally returned my empty compacts for a Back to MAC free lipstick! Seeing as it was free, I probably should have taken the time to be daring and try something I probably would never spend money on. Instead I took the safe route and picked up a shade that has been on my list for a long time, MAC’s Lustre Lipstick in the shade Plumful. After bringing it home I’ve come to realize I have about 10 of this exact same shade from about 6 different brands….I have a problem. But my favourite of them all is the L’Oreal Collection Privee The Perfect Red’s By Julianne. I’ve been searching for about a year for this (as well as Blake’s which I also picked up), but I put it off and put it off until the line was no longer sold! They’ve moved on the the Perfect Nudes collection, but I found the red’s in a tiny town Walmart and I jumped for joy!! I love this cherry pop red!!!

What have you been loving this month?
