June 2014 Beauty Favorites!9:00 AM
To kick off the summer season, I wanted to share my June Favorites video. I had the pleasure of favoriting a few Korean products this month as well as a few new holy grails that, seriously, how did I not use them everyday before? IN LOVE!
Video and a few swatches/mini reviews for you below. :)
The Face Shop Hand & Body Shiffon Cream
Recently my friend Martina visited us in LA from Korea and she brought me some amazing goodies from her favorite Korean beauty shop Etude House. Whilst complaining about the bland and cute-less packaging of western cosmetics, I ooh'd and ahh'd over the goodies she gathered including these amazing Play 101 Pencils, a recent offering from the brand of multi-purpose pencils in a huge range of colors.
Being that I can get many colored pencils but not too many fine-glitter ones, I specifically requested these lovelies:
pink 4 on the left and gold 5 on the right
These pencils are so easy to use for popping the perfect amount of brightening shimmer to the inner corners of the eyes. They really glint in the light from different angles which you can see in my favorites video. You could also use these on the lids to add a bit of sparkle to any look.
I've also been really loving my dual-ended Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Venus/Crave. The double ended pencils have a lot of different colors but this one by far is my favorite since I adore brightening the eyes with that inner corner highlight. Crave is also a creamy blackened brown which I've been using as an eyeshadow base on the daily.
Readers, what are some of your favorites this month? Do you have a favorite product for brightening/highlighting the eyes? Let me know in the comments!
