Current Loves For June . . .


Paul & Joe Creamy Facial Foam
NARS Beverly Hills Multiple Tint
NARS Sertao Blush
NARS Cordura Eyeshadow Duo
Urban Decay YDK Eyeshadow
Bobbi Brown Bronzer Brush
Bobbi Brown Shore Cream Eyeshadow
Chanel Nail Polishes
MAC Blonde's Gold Pigment
MAC Fleur Power
J.Crew Skinny Belts


* Sorry for the misspelling on the NARS blush, it's Sertao, not Serato



  • Paul & Joe Creamy Facial Foam - I tried this from a sample and finally purchased the full size. It's thick and creamy and cleanses the skin really well. Leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed.

  • NARS Beverly Hills Multiple Tint - See more swatches and the review here, a nice swipe & go type of product, easy to use and blend, gives a pop of color, can't rave enough about these

  • NARS Sertao Blush - A pretty shimmery light golden tan

  • NARS Cordura Eyeshadow Duo - Great for a smokey bronzed eye look

  • Urban Decay YDK Eyeshadow - This is from the old packaging, a nice nude-taupey-bronze sparkle

  • Bobbi Brown Bronzer Brush - This is from the Black Plum set, but is available in the regular brush handle, the most luxurious soft bronzer brush you'll ever find. Definitely worth the price even though it is pricier.

  • Bobbi Brown Shore Cream Eyeshadow - My perfect lids-but-better base, review here

  • Chanel Nail Polishes - Especially love Riviera (check out dupes here) and Orange Blossom (see the manicure here)

  • MAC Fleur Power - The perfect healthy warm pink blush

  • MAC Blonde's Gold Pigment - The prettiest wash of soft gold-champagne

  • J.Crew Skinny Belts - Simple, classic and makes a nice accent to the waist, now I just need to go back and find a black one


What are you loving right now? I always love reading your favorites.

*Update* I wasn't happy with the swatches for this post - I think they were a bit misleading because the lighting was off so I removed them so I don't confuse my readers. Sorry for any confusion!

  1. I'm loving bronzers right now -- I have several and am using them all.
    I love the look of Fleur Power and NARS Serato -- might have to pick them up.

  2. I love Fleur Power! It's one of my HG blushes. I think we have a similar skintone and these are all products I've wanted to try for a long time. Maybe I'll pick some of these up soon!

  3. Hey Sabrina! Lovely favorites!! Btw did you change the lighting for your photography? It seems a little yellower, honestly I think I prefer the older white light, seemed more true to life.. just my opinion, hope you don't mind me saying! :)
    Here are my faves for the month:
    1. MUFE aqua cream #15 you have heard enough from me abt this one! :)
    2. Chanel poudre universelle libre
    3.P&J nail enamels in #27 (gilded gold) and #29 (peachy pink cream)
    4. My MAC 181 kabuki for loose powder and buffing and the MAC 263 for lining my eyes with shadow
    5. Chanel Mocha blush
    6. Topshop cream blush in Nutmeg
    7. MAC tinted lip conditioner in Petting Pink
    8. EB Island Rose compact rouge for cheeks and lips
    9. MAC eye kohls in Tarnish and Phone number: the first a hunter green/teal which is gorgeous with gold and taupe shadows, the second is a grey/black with a tinge of blue
    10.MAC Fly by blue eye kohl for a pop of electric teal on the lower lashline only with a neutral eye look

  4. great faves! I didn't know YDK was so purpley looking, it's a fav of mine too.

  5. Justine - I made a note that YDK isn't purpley, but pulled purpley on the swatch photo.

    Lakshmi - Thanks for your input. It's been cloudy where I live, so these were taken with same lighting etc. For some reason it just doesn't pull so great when it's cloudy. Also used a yellow paper for the background which might be why it pulled more yellow?

  6. The NARS blush looks darker in the pan than the swatch, really pretty color though~ I am not sure I can pull off the multiple, but it is a gorgeous color.^0^

  7. Nice POST! But...why isn't the BB brown shore cream not used? lol doesn't seem like it's a favourite of June. =D

  8. LipstickRules - What are your favorite bronzers? I'm a bronzer addict. Love those new shoes you got!

    Stephanie - I love Fleur Power too, it's very under-rated.

    Crystal/Cherry - I removed the swatch b/c I think it was misleading. Everyone can have an off day for photographing here and there. Sorry for the confusion. I'm sure there are better swatches on other websites that you can find. The Multiple is surprisingly wearable!

    Anonymous - Don't know what to say in response to your comment other than I take really good care of my items. It is definitely used and I have used it a lot this month. I use my fingers so the surface stays smooth.

  10. Hi, I was just wondering if the Nars blush was Sertao? I can't find a listing for Serato anyplace, just Sertao on the Nars site. TIA!

  11. Hi Sooshi - TY :) You're very sweet.

    Lynnsey - Oops, sorry about that mistake. It's is Sertao - thanks for catching that!

  14. Chanel's Orange Fizz is one of my favourite nail colours to wear for summer.

    It's happiness in a bottle... :0)

  15. Nice picks of nail polishes, Orange Fizz is one of the best Chanel NP in my opinion. And I also love bright nails for summer.
