June Favorites 2015

Hey everyone, I'm back after a long trip to New York. Sorry about not posting, I forgot to bring my laptop with me and only brought the charger, stupid I know. Anyway, here's what I've been loving this month, I know that it is a little bit early but this is what I like so far.

So my first favorite of the month is this bracelet from Ann Taylor. It's this beautiful antiquey bronze color with a lacey floraly pattern with a light pink pearl in the middle. It's stretchy so almost anyone can wear it. It's not very heavy and it can look expensive and elegant or rustic and quirky depending on the outfit it's paired with. I can't seem to find it online, but I bought it at Ann Taylor so you might be able to find it in stores.

(Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien $26, Mary Kay Lip Liner in Soft Blush $12)
My next favorite for this month is this pairing of lip products. The first product is the Nars satin lip pencil in Rikugien, it was one of the Sephora birthday gifts this year and I'm in love. It's a very silky and moisturizing lipstick with a natural finish, in a mauve and pink color. The second is the Mary Kay lip liner in Soft Blush. This is almost a perfect match in color for the lip pencil, and it's very smooth so I love to pair them together for a very neutral yet present splash of color to the lips, perfect for the work or school.
(Victoria's Secret Fragrance Mist in Dark Orchid, not the actual link but same fragrance lotion)
So my next favorite is this fragrance mist from Victoria's Secret. I love Victoria's Secret fragrances normally because I tend to love floral fragrances that still smell modern, does that make sense? Like I  love Rose scents but not a musty rose, more like a fresh rose. Anyway, this stuff BLEW all my other fragrances away (even my absolute favorite scent, Daisy by Marc Jacobs). I got a little free mini rollerball with a purchase a few years ago, I smelt it, and I was obsessed but I could never find anything in this scent in store. Until now when I found it on sale in my Victoria's Secret store, I also got it on the semi annual sale, so it was like almost around $13!!! The packaging is beautiful and gives off a beautiful and elegant vibe and the bottle has an ombre pink thing going on that reminds me of a crystal, it's just so beautiful. I guess I should attempt to describe the smell now, it smells very warm and floraly (like an orchid, who would guess?) with slight sweet undertones. I highly recommend this fragrance to everyone and I have literally worn no other scent all month long.

(CeraVe Face Sunscreen, SPF 50, $8.39)

Now I normally despise sunscreen, I know I know that everyone is supposed to wear sunscreen but I always have hated the smell of sunscreen and it always irritated my skin and broke me out. So I would always just skip the SPF whenever I would go out, but then I would always burn. This one however, absorbs really fast into the skin and you only need a little bit to cover the entire face, it doesn't break me out and I don't burn as often, this also has no annoying smell but it does leave a little bit of a white cast on your face. 
(SunBurnt After Sun Gel)
So if I ever do get sun burned, I always always use the Sun Burnt after sun gel to heal the burn. It's an amazing product, and I swear by it. This stuff is like even better than aloe and it's homeopathic too! It does have a slight scent but it's not obnoxious and it smells very clean. When you first put this on, I would recommend putting on a thick layer and sit under a fan for an hour. It feels like a mask if you put a lot on and it burns for 10 second and then feels very cold. However, If you put only a little bit on, it's not noticeable under makeup. On bare skin, it will look a little shiny. The packaging is cute but they updated it and it's eh. 
(e.l.f. foundation brush, $2)
My next favorite is this foundation brush from e.l.f. I hate this brush for actual foundation ironically, but it is PERFECT for applying face masks. I bought this brush all excited to use an actual foundation brush not just a buffing brush but it never worked for foundation any way I would try. I even tried it for contouring and it sucked. But it is perfect for putting on face masks without getting your fingers dirty. Yes, I know you could just use your fingers, but this flat brush is ideal for getting all the spots you might miss. 

(Bath and Body Works White Tea and Ginger Shower Gel, $3.50)
My last favorite for this month is the Bath and Body Works White Tea and Ginger Shower Gel. This is one of their flashback fragrances and I'm obsessed. I bought it during their semi annual sale so it was only like 3 dollars!

(Bath and Body Works White Tea and Ginger Shower Gel, $3.50)

Now I go against the rules and use shower gels as bubble baths because they always create a ton of bubbles. If they had come out with a bubble bath in this fragrance I would have bought that instead but they didn't :( So I started to use the shower gel in place of a bubble bath. One thing I've always noticed is that bubble baths are more expensive than shower gels, yet they tend to make the same amount of bubbles.  I'm the kind of person who loves a ton of bubbles in a bath so I go through a bottle in about 7-8 baths. Also for 3 dollars, I can run through a few bottles before I start to feel guilty.

(Bath and Body Works White Tea and Ginger Shower Gel, $3.50)
This smells very citrusy and fresh, like a spa. I love the smell of ginger and it's very relaxing, but not overpowering. It's beautifully subtle and really reminds me of Origins ginger scent. This scent is amazing and it's perfect for creating tons of bubbles. I highly recommend the shower gel, or anything else in this line. Also, I don't understand how people don't like to take baths, they're so relaxing and bubbles. Just bubbles. How can someone hate bubbles. All right well that's the end of my spiel so I'll leave you right here. Leave me a comment down below letting me know what's was your favorite product this June?
