June Favorites

Summer is here and hot weather is making me wear minimal makeup every day. 

  1. 10x Macro Mirror
  2. Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Emerveille
  3. Becca Beach TintShimmer Souffle in Watermelon
  4. GlamGlow Thirsty Mud
  5. Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Color Powder
  6. MAC Enchanted One (matte)
  7. Fresh Sugar tinted lip balm in honey
Found this 10x Macro Mirror at my local Winners. I have a vanity mirror in my bathroom which is 5x. Don't you find the best place to check your makeup is the little mirror on the visor in your car? But I rarely do touch ups in my car. This mirror is quite "cruel", not filtering any imperfections on my face but I need that so I can fix as much as I can.

My first Chanel cream eye shadow is Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Emerveille. It is a champagne pink shade which I love. Even though it looks a bit shimmery, it doesn't show up much on my eyelids. I have had this for a couple of years and it does dry out a bit, no matter how tight I keep the lid closed. 

Becca Beach Tint Souffle has got to me my favorite cream/souffle blush for the summer. This is the shade Watermelon and not only it does smell like watermelon, the shade is quite vibrant in the tube but it transfers beautifully on cheeks. The lasting power is also amazing.

MAC Enchanted One is from their limited edition of Alluring Aquatic Collection released last month. This is my first matte lipstick from them and I am surprised I love the formula. I thought matte lipstick would be drying on my lips but it is surprisingly creamy. Love the your lips but better color.

Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Balm has been in my staple for years and years. My latest shade is Honey which is a nude, pink with brown undertone shade. I like to apply this first and then my MAC Enchanted One and gives the most natural lip look.

I have been using the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Color Powder every single day since I got it. See my post for swatches. Ever since I refrain myself from sun-tanning anymore, I still want the bronze summer healthy glow and this powder is perfect applied to give my skin some color.

Last but not least is the GlamGlow Thirsty Mud treatment. Who would guess this oily combo skin gal would need a good hydrating mask in the summer time? I always thought that I need extra hydration in the cold winter months. But I find with more frequent deep-cleansing, unclogging pores, my skin can be left quite dry and I need it to drink up all the goodies from the Thirsty Mud to keep hydrated and stay healthy. I also find keeping my skin hydrated would minimize blemishes.

What have you been loving this month? Care to share?


  1. I keep hearing about GlamGlow products here on your blog, and I am really interested in trying them. You're right. We need moisture and hydration even in summer because of air conditioning, and it seems my skin produce more oil when it is dehydrated. ;0

    1. I really enjoy the GlamGlow products and I'm usually wouldn't spend that much on treatments/facial masks so that says a lot of how much I adore these. The Supermud clearing one is my must have to control blemishes and I sweat it works like a charm.

  2. I really love the look of Enchanted one, everytime I want to swatch it, someone has either used it all up or it is no longer there :(

    1. That's the thing about downside of limited edition items from MAC. Enchanted one is a more pinky nude with a brown undertone so it actually looks good on most lips and I don't look sick or washed out.

  3. I didn't pick up anything from the Aquatics collection. I do love that packaging though.

  4. I haven't tried the powder by Chanel but I would love to! I have been eyeing that MAC line for some time as well.

  5. That MAC lipsticks looks great! Oddly I actually have never bought anything from MAC before... back in makeup school there was a controversy about how MAC downgraded ingredients and increased prices many years ago, and people were upset about it. So with many other brands out there I just didn't bother to try it out for myself. I do see so many lovely shades of all types of makeup from them though...will try for myself one day!
