My Monthly Favorites: June 2013

Hello Pinay Beauties! I know my monthly favorites was a bit late, but hey, better late than never right? Anyways, here are my favorites for the month of June.

You may have heard this a million times, but seriously June felt like it just flew by. I don't know if its because it was already crazy busy at work and I was adjusting big time. Anyway, here are the products that I used and abused for the past month.

Eazy Fashion's Korean Daewon Eyelash Curler

Sorry I forgot to take a mugshot for this product, but you can check my first impression here. I absolutely love, love, love this eyelash curler and I use it every single time. Works great on curling my stubborn lashes so this would be a favorite for the months to come.

Look Beauty Brow Perfect

2 months in a row, yes! I really adore this brow kit because it has everything that I need to do my brows. The stencils, powders and the fixing gel are amazing. For more details, check out my May 2013 Favorites here.

Beauty Republic Dramatic BB Tinted Cream

This is my go-to face product of the month. I use it alone or mix it with my other foundation. The coverage and staying power of this BB Cream is superb. It's a bit expensive but I don't mind repurchasing this baby.

Celeteque Hydrolized Moisturizing Mist

Since I went to the beach and my face was absolutely dry for the past month, I use this to set my makeup in place and also to give hydration to my skin. I cannot comment though if it makes my makeup last longer as I always use waterproof or long lasting products, but this didn't control the oil so I need to blot lots of times so that my face will stay mattified. Regardless, it's still a big help in providing moisture to my skin.

LA Passion Single Eyeshadow in Taupe

It is an eyeshadow but this has been my go-to contour powder as of the moment. The color is just perfect for creating a not-too-dark shadow on my face and it blends so easily. I got this as a prize from Yette when she chose me as her commenter of the month. Check out the other prizes I won here.

Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown

This baby is amazing! I use this to tightline my eyes and it doesn't budge on my watery eyes. Best part is I got this for almost half the price, from ₱400+ to just ₱247.00. I also love the brush that comes with it, it works pretty well in picking up the product and lining the eyes.

Gatsby Powdered Oil Clear Paper

My holy grail blotting paper. When I got out, the only thing I bring with me is my lipstick and this. I love that it absorbs oil and because it is powdered, mattifies it at the same time. Plus, it is super affordable and can be purchased in any department stores nationwide.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo

Ofcourse, the lipstick or rather the lip color of the month is this NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo. The color is just gorgeous! I got this from Chic Cosmetics Manila, 3 for ₱700. This is different from the Give A Little Love set as Chic Cosmetics offered 3 different sets before. Product review coming soon so stay tuned!

DKNY Be Delicious in Fresh Blossom

Last but not the least is the fragrance of the month. I have been wearing this perfume for the past month and it smells so good. It smells fruity and a bit sweet but it compliments me so no contest to that. I love this perfume and the packaging is really unique. I love it!

And these are my favorites for the month of June. Let me know if you want me to do a full review on any of the products mentioned above. If you have any questions, suggestions, requests, etc. please do not hesitate to leave a comment below. I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you so much for your continuous support guys. God bless you all and goodluck!

      Hello Belle! Here is my review of the BB Cream:

      You should try the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, it's amazing! :) I hope Chic Cosmetics will bring back their 3 for ₱700 sets, kasi you can choose different colors unlike sa Give A Little Love Set if hindi mo gusto yung isang color nakakapanghinayang..
