First off, I wanna say thanks for all the get well wishes you’ve been sending! I’ve been sick with a cold for the past five days (SMH). I’m getting better, so that’s a plus!!! I hope you guys have had a great June!
First thing I’m going to mention is the Motives Elements Color Box which we all know I love. I’ve mentioned this palette before but I have been using this pretty much non-stop throughout the month of June and I’ll be traveling with this when I leave in July. It’s a versatile palette, and I love that some of these shades can double as a translucent setting powder, a bronzer or contour shade, or a highlight. You’ve got everything for a natural every day look to a nighttime sultry smokey eye.
Next is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette which, I’m just going to say it, is my favorite face palette of all time. You have a setting powder, a bronzer, and a highlighter and I use these products on a regular basis. This particular month I’ve been loving this for the eyes and face alike and I just love the way it makes my skin look. This palette will also be finding its way into my makeup travel bag.
Another thing I have been loving for a natural glow factor is the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl. I don’t mix this in with my foundation anymore like I used to as my skin is much more oily nowadays, but I do apply this on the high points of my cheekbones, a little above the point of my brows, and on the tip of my nose. It adds this summery, healthy glow to the skin and makes it just look beautiful. This particular color is perfect for all skin tones as well, so if you are a very fair skinned person looking for a gorgeous highlight, I highly recommend this one.
You guys know that I’ve had a weird relationship with this powder, but now that I am getting a bit tanner as the summer goes on, the Motives Luminous Loose Powder in Medium has been perfect for setting my face. It’s not making me look too orange which I appreciate and it makes my skin look absolutely flawless with it’s coverage enhancer in the formula. I highly recommend this setting powder (if you are more light to medium, I would go with translucent or light, and medium to dark, I would go with medium.).
I’m sure you guys know this was coming because I cannot stop raving about it in other videos and on social media, it’s the Motives Fiber Lush Mascara. I am a mascara snob and I have tried out quite a few mascaras (both drugstore and high end) and I can say that this particular mascara is hands down the best mascara I have ever used. It makes your lashes look fan-freaking-tastic. I love the formula, it’s not too clumpy but not too thin, it doesn’t crumble and fall out all over your face, and it’s perfect. It’s perfect. Go get it. You need it in your life.
These next two products are my custom blend eyeshadows in the shades Copper Sunset and Diamond White. If you’d like to see these in action and more detail on them, visit my other website www.motivesbysungeunrose.wordpress.com.
A nail polish I’ve been loving is a fun and flirty shade from the Motives Nail Lacquers in Prom Queen. It’s really opaque even with the red, gold, and silver micro-glitters within the formula. It’s a stunning nail polish and is really fun for the summer.
Lastly is a skincare item that I’ve been using for about a week now, but it works like magic. If you have acne prone skin or struggle with blemishes, this is for you. This is the Timeless Prescription Anti-Blemish Lotion. It reduces your blemishes from bright and bold to basically gone literally overnight. It has helped my skin so much, as my skin has been going absolutely crazy due to the change in season. It’s the coolest thing. You don’t shake it, and it’s a clear liquid with a pink sediment (but it doesn’t feel like sand) at the bottom, and you dip a cotton swab into it and place it on your blemish. It’s the weirdest consistency and it doesn’t feel gritty or anything like that. It’s freaking awesome.
Alrighty, I hope you guys enjoyed this monthly favorites! Let me know some of your favorites down in the comment section below. I love you all very, very much and I’ll see you in my next post!
