June Favourites

Posted by snowbunnytales at 3:43 AM

Ecotools Bamboo Bronzer Brush($12ish?) - This brush is sooo soft! I love that it has a big fat handle too! I used to use this with my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I liked using it with a loose powder, but lately I've been using it with a bronzer :)

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer - I took this from my mom when I came home. She doesn't use it~ so I had to take it for the bronzer's sake hahaa ;) I'm not so fond of the packaging. The star is cute, but I don't like the twist off top, plus the product surface area is a bit small, esp when I use my Ecotools bronzer brush. 

I like this bronzer tho~ it is matte, but has a bit of a glowy finish. When you look at the product, it looks like it has some shimmers on it, but it doesn't show up on the skin. I think I like matte bronzers more than the shimmery ones~

So I'm starting to like bronzers alot! Any recommendations for another good bronzer? 

Benefit Stay Don't Stray - Got this in that mini benefit kit a while back. I just started using it in June tho. I have to say...I like this more than the Urban Decay one. The texture is very light and liquidy and it has a little bit of color that brightens my lids a bit. This little tiny bottle has lasted me for a while too~ I think I would buy this over UD, but I'm going to get Paul&Joe first :)

Mac Studio Fix - I have a love and hate relationship with this product. I've used it on and off for years since high school. It's one of the cheaper higher end products and it also does it's job at covering up discolorations, so I end up coming back to it for these reasons too. For me, I have to use this with a brush or it might end up looking cakey. 

I've been using only this powder foundation with my RMK primer underneath since June. It's been working so well. I'm in a hot and Humid climate weather right now and I didn't want to use any liquid foundations. Loving this right now! and the primer makes it last!!! Just got my backup today, since I'm almost out~

Resicare - This is a baby powder brand here in Thailand. It's made from rice starch and is 100% talc-free, bio-degradable, extra mild and hypoallergenic :)  It's so hot here and my underarms have been suffering from my sweat and heat (eew) it stings and itches and this has saved me! I've been using this after every shower. Surprisingly it's been working as a deodorant too (somedays hahaa) I think I might have to take some back to the States with me~

and I love those fake flowers behind the products hahaa~
