June Essentials.

Here are some of my favorites from the month of June. These are some of the products that helped me stay cool and collected during the humid weather. 

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner $16.00
This black eyeliner does the job it is meant to do. It has a stiff felt tip which helps you create that perfect straight line. It is the only eyeliner that I have used that doesn't bleed or smear as the day goes on. I used this almost everyday to help define my eyes and make them pop all in the matter of seconds.
Benefit They're Real! Mascara $23.00
This mascara is all that it is hyped up to be and more. It does magical things to my eyelashes. Just 2 coats and my lashes look fuller and longer. It doesn't smear under my eyes after walking around in the sweltering heat for hours like all the other mascaras do. And most importantly it doesn't flake after a long day of wear.  I only have the smaller size from Sephora as a birthday gift. I might even say that this is my holy grail mascara.
Nuxe RĂªve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm $19.00
I had this in my stash for a couple months before I learned how to property use it. This smells exactly like pure honey. When I first got this I thought I needed to slather it on in heaps for it have some sort of substantial moisturization for my lips, like all the other lip balms I have ever had in the past. But in reality all I need is a light layer overnight and I wake up with silky soft lips. This is always on my nightstand and even for such a small size it has lasted me for a while.
Caudalie Beauty Elixier $18.00
Another staple of mine. The aroma is one resembling a spa day at home. I spray this on my face whenever I need a quick pick me up. I love this especially on a humid day since it does feel a little tingly and tightening or as a refresher after a nice workout. This is definitely not a necessity but once you start using the luxury is something you don't want to give up.
Lumene Vitamin C Pure Radiance 24 hour Lotion 
I found this at my local TJ Max for a couple dollar. I love the Lumene skincare line and all of their products work really well with my skin. I swipe this lotion on in the mornings after my Clarisonic and my skin instantly drinks it up. It doesn't leave my skin oily or greasy looking and keeps me looking fresh for the rest of the day. I can't say it has done anything with the radiance aspect. I am just glad that it is made with good ingredients and gets the job done.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation $18.65
 I got this while I was on vacation in Russia since it isn't available in the US. I am obsessed with the smell. It smells light fresh and fruity but after a couple seconds the scent fades leaving a smooth and glowing finish on the face. It is a light gel consistency and blends like a dream. I have pretty oily skin and this foundation keeps me glowy, not oily, for the entire day. I am so sad that I won't have such ease of access to it here is the US.
Nars Laguna Bronzer $36.00
Everyone owns this bronzer or at least has heard of it. It applies evenly and it is very difficult to over do. I use this as an all over face powder at the moment because my foundation is a bit to light and this helps give me the perfect tan. If  I am looking closely I can see very fine glitter but nothing that will make you look like Edward Cullen.
M.A.C Blush-Dame $21.00
My go to blush for a flushed light pink cheek. This blush is perfect for lighter skin tones and provides the innocent light pink flush but also looked beautiful paired with a tan. One swipe and I am ready to go. Very difficult to over do, frankly it might be impossible. Dame is such a forgiving blush great for a first blush from M.A.C.
L'Occitane Hand Cream- Shea Butter $28.00
I think everyone should try out a L'Occitane hand cream. They are so nourishing and creamy. I adore the Shea Butter one for the smell and for how soft it leaves my hands. Working in food services leads me to wash my hands at least 10 times a day making them dry and cracked, even my nails grow parched. The minute I get home I slather this cream on and bask in the glory of baby smooth hands. Plus the tube will last you years!
