June was the busiest month for me with everything from graduation, to celebrating my birthday, to the prep for a close friend’s wedding. My posts, as a result, have been few and far in between this month. With a new month now underway, I am getting back on track by starting off with my favourite products for the month of June.
Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish (Sheer Fantasy) – If you read my monthly favourites post last month (check it out here), then you know I am going through a huge obsession with nude pink nails. It is such a clean and polished look that goes with everything you’re wearing. I think it is so incredibly flattering. This month, Essie’s new Gel Couture polishes launched and they are amazing! They are Essie’s take on the at home gel manicure trend that doesn’t require a UV light to dry the polish. Let me tell you, these are game changing! It honestly looks like a shellac manicure and it lasts for a full 6 days before any major chipping. So far I have only tried the shade Sheer Fantasy, but expect a full review once I have had a chance to test out a few more shades.
Benefit Kabrow – Benefit launched their new brow products in June and they helped my brows find their game. For a full breakdown of the new brow collection see my post here. Someone told me my brows looked “fleeky” – definitely a first. Kabrow is a cream-gel brow colour. It does an amazing job at defining and filling in my brows, while still keeping them natural. It is a super easy product to use that is amazing for anyone just starting out, or a seasoned brow expert.
La Roche Posay Anthelios Ultra-Fluid Lotion – After working in the beauty industry for the past few years I have seen a whole new light to the reality of sun damage. This has turned me into a sunscreen addict. My favourite facial sunscreen is the Ultra-Fluid Lotion from La Roche Posay. It is a fast absorbing liquid with an SPF of 60 sunscreen that provides both UVA and UVB protection. It is extremely light weight, dries to a matte finish and wears flawlessly under makeup. If you are someone who isn’t a lover of sunscreen because of the heavy or oily texture I recommend giving this one a try. You won’t be disappointed.
Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water – This product has been a staple in my everyday routine for a while now, but with the warmer weather we have now it has become an essential. It is a facial mist that also helps extend how long my makeup wears, while having amazing benefits for the skin. It provides hydration and radiance which is perfect for the summer months when we all want glowing skin.
I hope you all had a great month of June! I would love to hear about your favourite products this month in a comment below.
