June & July 2013 Beauty Favorites!10:23 PM
Hey everyone! I wanted to share with you some of my favorites from the last couple of months. A lot of these are my "return to makeup" products so they would actually be really perfect for newbies to makeup who want to start with some great go-to basics, or students who don't have time or money to get every color of every item. Gotta love that low-thought, high-impact makeup that's both flattering and easy to wear, right? ;)

Okay, can I just take a minute to give some praise to a new product that a lovely Twitter follower (I can't find the tweet so if it was you, please let me know!) recommended to me? The Puffs Fresh Faces wipes were a lifesaver during my fever sweats to wipe away the uncomfortable sticky feeling. It's bad enough to have the fevers in the first place, but dealing with the yucky sweaty feeling every few hours is maddening.
It's made with saline so it's much more natural than traditional makeup wipes and since getting better, I've already used it to wipe dust off a table and for wiping makeup off my hands while I'm doing my morning routine. I'd imagine it would also be fantastic for using post-workout as well.
I've also been really loving the 3CE Lip Lacquer in Show Time which is basically a matte liquid lipstick in deep pink. I wore it in the video and also through 2 meals and can verify that it's super long-lasting and comfortable to have on throughout the day. The best part is that what you see is what you get and the color on lips is exactly the shade in the bottle!
It retails for (18,900 Korean won) $20.81 USD and you can pick it up online at Style Nanda or in-stores at Myeongdong and Hongdae in Seoul, South Korea.
