June 2016 Favorites

17:31

Hey Beauties!

In June I have been trying out a lot of new products and a lot of those ended up in my monthly favorites. A lot of my makeup favorites have been similar to my May 2016 Favorites, so I didn't want to repeat myself this month.



Lysaskin Laboratories Atolys Cleansing and Relipidifying Gel

On SummerMBeauty event we got some personalized products according to our skin description. I got this cleansing gel which is for dry skin and skin with atopic tendencies. I still have occasional problems with my skin allergy and products that are targeted toward sensitive skin usually work great with my skin. This is clear gel which feels super gentle on the skin. It creates gentle foam and washes the face without stripping it of its natural moisture. It has seriously impressed me and I will definitely do a separate review on it. In Slovenia you can get it here

Plantae Rose Hip Fruit + Seed Serum

Rose hip oils is probably one of the best widely used oils. It's pretty much good for all skins. It has various benefits and is great for dry skin, aging skin and perfect for treating damaged skin or getting rid of hyper pigmentation. My first rose hip oil was from Kahne. Initially, I thought that this was going to be serum, so lighter and not oily, but it's actually thinned out, a bit more liquid version of pure rose hip oil. I use this at night and my skin in the morning is well moisturized, smooth and just looks healthy. This is perfect for summer, since we tend to get a lot of sun spots or for treating sun burns as well. Full review of this will be on my blog soon. In Slovenia you can get it here


H&M Pure Radiance Powder Blusher - Apricot

H&M blushes have really impressed me with their quality and especially shade range. I already have Brown Sugar which is brownish peach shade. Apricot was on sale and of course I couldn't resist it after reading about it on Kvinatopia. Apricot is light peachy almost a bit pinky warm shade. It's lighter and a lot peachier than Brown Sugar. This one, as well, has that beautiful satin finish to it. I think I definitely need more of their shades. I love how most of their shades seem kind of muted, light and not typically bright as most blushes in drugstores.

Avon Glow  Bronzing Pearls - Pink Bronze

I already have a review of these here. They are light peach shimmery pearls that I've been loving as a blush. It gives a nice luminous finish and is light enough to make your skin look slightly glowy and almost a bit bronzed, if you're light like me. This is the type of product that you can put all over the skin when you're in a hurry and it would instantly give you some dimension and glow.

Maybelline Master Contour V-Shape Duo Stick Contour & Highlight - 01 Light

Finding shimmery stick bronzer and highlighter is not as hard as finding matte stick contour that is affordable. Especially in our drugstores, I find that the offer on these is very limited. I was so happy to see the lightest shade in our store (finally something light!). It's easier to use than it looks. You put one side against your cheeks and draw and then you turn it around and draw the other shade. This blend out like a dream, isn't too greasy and the shades are actually light enough for fair skin tones. I don't care much about highlight, but the contour is great. I will also do a full review on it.


Avon True Colour Eyeshadow Quad - Sun Washed Blooms

Shade 3 in particular, is the one that I'm mentioning here. It's one of the prettiest matte fuchsia shades that I've seen in a while. I feel like Avon stepped up their game with matte eye shadows and they are more pigmented than in some previous quads. I really like this shade, because I love purple eye shadows. Most of them are usually cool toned, very blue based and this one is a nice exception. Review of this palette will come soon.

Avon Glow Kajalstick - Warm Sand

I've already talked about these kajalstick here. Shade Warm Sand has the best inner corner highlight shade for my personal taste. It's light peach shade with lost of shimmer in it. I've been using this a lot this month. Black matte on the other side is just as good and I've been doing my eyeliner with pens a lot. For some reason, I can't be bother with full on liquid liner in summer months. Maybe because it can look really harsh and I prefer pens for a more natural look.


Belweder Lip Balm Stick - Melissa, Green Tea, Propolis

A few days ago I posted about these natural Belweder lip balms and the green tea scent was definitely my favorite. In the regular stick form that is, because I found it to be a bit more nourishing than other egg like versions. As you can see, I've almost used it up. The scent is just such a nice refreshment from all those usual sweet fruity scents and I really like the formula for daily hydration, especially in summer months. It's not too greasy, but not too light.

Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss - Rose Reflection

Avon recently came out with four lip gloss shades that have shimmery particles in it. I admit, I was intrigued looking at them in the catalog, because some seemed really metallic. The shades actually look very different in real life and I'll probably post a full review of them. Shade Rose Reflection impressed me the most and that is because it has the most golden sheen out of all other shades. The base is transparent pink, but shimmer in it is gold. I've been loving putting this one over lip stains or light lipsticks for added shine and especially warmth of golden shimmer. You can see me wearing it over mauve lipstick here. In the summer I always love a good shiny lip. Mattes can sometimes look too overdone in hot summery days. 


Ebelin Professional Precision Make Up Blender

I didn't even know that Ebelin came out with another, better makeup sponge version. I saw how soft it was on Maestraparokeets Instagram and decided to try it out. It's in fact miles away from their other versions that I talked about here. This one is a lot softer and it blends like a dream. I also find that it cleans up better than the other version. Don't really understand why they decided to glue together three different foam colors in one blender, but fine. I just hope that it will last and won't get too damaged because of its softness.

Avon Makeup Setting Spray

I've been using this like there's no tomorrow. In Slovenia the weather this month has been proper summer. It's hot and my makeup is always luminous and dewy, whether I want it or not. This setting spray is the only thing that keeps my makeup from running off of my face. It definitely helps to prolong the wear of makeup. I think I must be spraying too much of it on my face, because it definitely feels like a heavier layer and it even tightens my skin a bit. But you know, better safe than sorry.


Avon Little Black Dress Eau Fraiche and Avon Little Red Dress

My fragrance choice for this month are those two Avon Little Dress versions. Little Black Dress Eau Fraiche is for really hot days, since it's a slight bit fresher and greener, but still very much in my sweet family. On those not super hot days, I've been loving Little Red Dress, because it's a lot sweeter and fruitier. I really like these and they are not too strong for the summer, well at least if you're sweet kind of lover like me. I already wrote review of them here

  1. Sami krasni izdelki. Ebelin gobica je odlična, takoje mehka, ko se prepoji z vodo, res mene nič ne mika kak original:). Avon kroglice so tudi mene prepričale,Plantea je pa vrhunska, res veliko naravnega in organskega sem probala pa ji ploskam, ker mi ne dela mozoljev in če verjameš ali ne sem končno no ne še čisto po dveh mesecih uporabe vzljubila čistilno kremo, tako kot mi v šratu mogoče ni bila najbolj vau, je sedaj res carska zadeva. Balzam za vsako suho, žejno, dehidrirano, poškodovano, kožo, vsako preveč izpostavljeno soncu, nosiveliko makeupa. :) Petra tisti melisin-metin sirup imaš mogoče kak poseben recept, objavo na blogu, ogromno je tega doma pa bi naredila,tega nisem še nikoli,pa bi res poskusla:):):)

    1. Imaš prav, odlična je.:) Jaz ne bi dala za gobico 20eur sploh pa ker jo bo itak treba menjat. Menj se tudi zanimiva znamka. Sem preizkušala še nekaj drugih testerjev in mi je skoraj vse ustrezalo. Za vse ljubitelje naravnega je res dobra znamka :).
      Ta recept ti predlagam. http://www.220stopinjposevno.com/na-kro381niku/metin-sirup-z-limono
      Jaz sem delala liter pa pol namesto 3, ker mi je lani zavrel in to zato ker sem imela na toplem. Letos pa sem naredila po tem receptu samo namesto sveže citronke sem dala citronsko kislino. Ene 40 g na liter in pol. Med namakanjem sem imela v hladiniku, shranjujem pa v mrzli kleti in upam da čim dlje zdrži :D.

    2. Hvala ti, absolutno preverim recept in če bom toliko v času bom naredila. Več kot zafrknit ne morem:):) Pa ti poročam kako je uspelo:)

    3. Meni se je lani skisalo, ker sem dala zelo malo sladkorja in nič citronke. Oboje je konzervans tako da sem raje letos bolj sladko naredila, pa zelo zrdečim in je enak efekt. Meni je res boljše kot kakšna koli kuplena verzija. Upam, da ti uspe ;).

  2. Gobica je kupljena pri nas? V našem Dm-u sem videla samo tiste roza. Ni mi všeč, da je pisana, ampak če praviš, da je dobra se mi jo splača pogledat :P Maybelline Master Contour tudi zveni zanimivo :)

    1. Ja pri nas. Jaz sem jo našla tam med acetoni, če to kaj pomaga. In tako je pakirana da se na prvi pogled ne vidi kakšne barve je. :) Jaz ne razumem zakaj so zlepili skupaj tri odtenke gobice. Nimam občutka da bi bile različnih trdot alk kaj podobnega. Mehka je pa res ful. :D Maybelline je za tak lep dokaj naraven videz. Je kremna zadeva in ni too in your face. Meni je celo všeč pod bronzerju v pudru za čisto malo definicije :).

  3. Ta Maybelline Master Contour me mika, čeprav še vedno nisem prepričana, če ga naj vzamem ali ne :) Hm hm :D Sem videla, da bo Barry M tud contour stick zdaj poslal na trg, pa mogoče še malo počakam, da vidim ceno, če bo slučajno na voljo pri ličilih :D

    1. Jaz sem zadnjič vzela še en odtenek. Res so mi tako dobri, da bi kar vse imela :). Boš videla kako je ta mehka v primerjavi s tisto. Jaz imam doma še eno staro, pa je zagotovo več ne bom želela uporabljat :D.

  7. I started using a make-up blender as well lately and I'm really impressed with it! It gives such a nice finish.
    I saw that Apricot was on sale at one of my local H&Ms as well, but I got 'Cantaloup' instead :D Very similar, but a tad more melon-colored!

    1. Those makeup sponges are seriously the best tool for makeup. I almost stopped using brushes. The effect is just so natural :). I've seen Cantaloup as well and it's really pretty. I love all their blush shades. Especially the lighter neutral ones :D.
