June 2012 Beauty Favorites!10:09 PM
It's time for monthly favorites again! I've so enjoyed June in LA with the amazing weather and I've finally gotten the chance to really find a couple new products that work for my parched skin. Also in this video, I shared a little peek at my yet-unnamed cockatiel!
Check out the video & swatches of my new concealer below! :)
Parian Spirit travel spray (Japonesque version at Ulta)
China Glaze Surfin' For Boys (from the Summer Neons collection)
Nail polish is China Glaze Surfin' For Boys
Lipstick is Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
My favorite new item from this month has to be my Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer. In terms of face products, it's no surprise that MUFE always seems to end up in my favorites again and again. One of the biggest challenges of being Asian-American is that it's not always easy to find a good selection of yellow-based face makeup, so it's been quite nice finding a brand that suits my skin color exactly. I use shade 7 on my MAC NC30 skin.
The texture of the concealer is a thick cream and it actually reminds me a lot of my potted concealers since it's so opaque, but once it's on the skin it dries down to a nice smooth, matte finish.
You can see in this close up a tiny dollop, then the concealer swiped, then blended in completely.
Here is a more accurate view of what it looks like to the naked eye. Since the concealer covers so well, a little goes a long way and I literally only use about 2 tiny drops like this for my entire face.
What I love most about this product is that it matches my skin so well that I can just wear a bit of this and feel comfortable going out for the day. I don't like to wear heavy foundation everyday but I like to cover my hyperpigmentation/acne scars so this is perfect for me. It also hasn't broken me out so far but I will continue using it and let you guys know if anything changes.
Hope you enjoyed this month's favorites!
Because sharing is caring, let me know in the comments what your favorite concealer is and what type of problem you use concealer for the most. :)
