June 30, 2010

It's the last day of the month of June and time for my favourites. Again you will notice a trend for summer appropriate makeup here. Though the weather is still pretty spring like here (one day it's 15C next it's 30C), when it's hot out the humidex is quite high. My choices of favourites definitely reflects the weather conditions.

faves

1. MUFE F&B in shade #32 - I went through a whole bottle of this amazing foundation last summer and picked up another bottle at IMATS Toronto. F&B foundation is a great water based and light foundation. It feels like nothing on and also has a bit of a cooling affect as you apply it. It's hands down the best warm weather face product I've had the pleasure of trying. This particular shade should match NC25/Nw25-NC30/NW30.

2. Ben Nye Final Seal Spray - this is another IMATS purchase that I've been using quite often lately. I love how this spray actually sets your makeup and keeps you matte for hours. It def works much better for me that Fix+ (which does nothing for me honestly). I really love all Ben Nye products I've tried.

3. MAC Thrills l/s - I picked this up from To the Beach collection and have been wearing it more often than I thought. It's a gorgeous rosy bronze shade that is surprisingly universally flattering. I don't have anything like it in my stash and love it with my warm toned summer eyes or even bare faced.

4. Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque in Phoenix - I hope I haven't already put this one in a monthly fave post, lol! This lipstick has got to be one of my faves of all time. It's a lovely raspberry pink shade in Chanel's super awesome lacque formula. It feels light on lips yet it's opaque and long wearing. You can find my swatches for Phoenix here.

5. Blue Peep f/l - I honestly cannot believe I waited so long to pick this up. Blue Peep fluidline is a gorgeous blue gel liner with hints of teal mixed in. It's the idea summer eyeliner to me. It looks equally amazing as a base. I've been wearing this product few times a week and cannot get enough!

Have you tried any of the above products? What are your favourite products for the month of June?

    Is F&B really that great? I think I keep striking out on MUFE foundations! Thrills is definitely a favorite here too, totally agree with you on that one. :)

    I really like F&B coz it's very light yet buildable. My skin is not perfect but it's not too bad either though. F&B is not full coverage if that's what you'r looking for, it's light and perfect for summer :)
