Hello beautiful people!
I hope you’re all as happy as I am that it’s finally June- and it’s finally starting to feel like summer! With that being said, it’s time for monthly favourites! This month there are a couple of TV shows added into the mix so make sure you read to the end!
I’ve seen a lot of people raving about the Maybelline Instant age rewind concealer, so I figured I had to give it a try. I picked it up in the shade fair, and it’s actually a perfect match for me! This concealer is so worth the hype, it’s creamy and brightening, and doesn’t crease at all. It has a very light weight consistency, and it blends out under the eye so smoothly – I don’t have particularly bad dark circles, so I can’t really confirm if it covers them, but it does have a nice coverage. My one beef with this product is the applicator, I don’t like that you have to twist the product out into the sponge tip, I feel like it’s definitely wasting the concealer. Aside from that, I would put this up there with some of my favourite high end concealers, and this is a fraction of the price!
Springsheen from MAC is the most incredible blush for spring, I definitely feel like I’ve put this in a favourites before, but I just love to wear this when the weather is warmer. It’s a gorgeous coral-pink shade with gold shimmer that adds the most incredible glow to your skin, so you don’t even need to use a highlighter with this blush! It really warms up my pale skin, but I feel like it would look gorgeous on any skin-tone.
The EOS lip balms are another favourite in the beauty community, and I’ve had a few in the past, but I had a few other balms to work through and just recently re-purchased this one in the summer fruit scent! I like to use it before bed so when I wake up my lips are so soft and moisturized. Honestly, as far as lip balms go, I really like these ones, especially because you get quite a lot of product in one little ball.
The last beauty favourite is one of the shadows from the MAC cool neutral palette; don’t get me wrong, the whole palette is absolutely divine, but this shadow just takes the cake for me. I’m pretty sure it’s called deception (but don’t quote me on that!) It’s in the second row, fourth from the right, and it’s the most beautiful, smoky taupe-mauve shade! It’s really similar to MAC Patina, but it has more of a purple under tone than a gold one. I’ve been wearing this on its own for weeks now; it can be worn for day time with a little lip gloss, or for evening with some winged liner and a bold lip! With a shade like this, the possibilities are endless.
(Let me know if you want a full review/swatches of this palette)
Finally my last two favourites are TV shows I got very into throughout May. The first one is called Orphan Black, and it’s sort of hard to tell you what it’s about without giving everything away, but I can say it’s full of action, plot twists and some good love stories, and I would classify the genre as science fiction. I was also drawn to this show because it’s filmed mostly in Toronto, which is awesome because I can point out places I know while I watch this awesome show!
The second show is called Reign, this one is a period drama based in France while Mary Queen of Scots was living there. Again, this show is ACTION packed with some good love stories; if you like game of thrones and pretty little liars you’ll like this show, it’s a good mix of beautiful costumes and just the right amount of betrayal and drama.
Until next time my loves,
