I hadn't been really loving anything in particular this month, I did enjoy the NARS blush/bronzer trio I had bought recently but I was having issues with fading and sweating it off with the weather and walking to the bus so that wasn't really doing it for me. But towards the end of the month, I found several products that I really latched on to.
I have still been enjoying my MUFE Mat Velvet+ in shade #15, it doesn't bother my skin and the color is fabulous. Only downside, and this really goes for any traditional foundation let's be honest, my skin has been cycling through dry spells and this stuff will highlight massively any dry flakes.
It doesn't work so great in the heat, but nonetheless I really like the Laura Mercier Undercover Pot shade 1 which has the two concealers and setting powder in one. I can't say I find the setting powder to be any better than my e.l.f. HD powder, but I'm no powder expert. I have been using a powder puff to press the powder in for setting, then dusting off the excess with a powder brush per Wayne Goss' (gossmakeupartist) tip. Kind of shocked how lovely the finish is doing that method! I like how dry the oil free concealer is, good for blemishes that can be aggravated by a concealer that isn't oil free; and the rich emollient peachy concealer for under eyes is good for correcting and as long as my undereye skin isn't excessively dry - it's creamy enough to not be patchy or catch on dryness (I have been having great difficulty with dryness under my eyes the past week so I haven't even bothered using concealer).
To go along with the hot and sweaty-resistant theme, also digging the Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream, I only have one in shade 17 - it's a plum that blends out sort of brown on me. It's very shimmery/metallic when packed on. It is definitely waterproof, but it does break down on me a bit especially if I'm sweating/wearing sunscreen. But I can wear it for a workday without worrying about it becoming horribly creased.
And a little sidenote, in my foundation swatch post I'm wearing posietint on my lips, MUFE Aqua Cream on my eyes and the cream color base in Pearl on my brownbone for a highlight!
Last but definitely not least, and not makeup related in the slightest, a ring from Target! But I love it so much, I had to include it. It was what inspired me to post my favorites actually. I find it so adorable, can't even put it into words. It was in their sterling silver section, with cubic zirconia. Unfortunately they only seemed to carry size 7s and 8s, I wanted a 6 so I could wear it on my ring finger. But, alas, I had to get it anyway and it's only a slight bummer that I have to wear it on my middle finger. :)
I will post separately for my June Flops, I didn't want to cram it all into one. :)
