June Beauty Favorites

On this last day of June, I wanted to share my June Beauty Favorites!

MAC Persistence Lipstick
On June 11 MAC released their new Matte Lip Collection from which I bought the color Persistence. When I first started wearing MAC in high school or college my signature orange lipstick was a color called Luxe. But they discontinued that color and I replaced it with something similar but it wasn't the same.  Persistence is described as a peachy cinnamon with a matte finish. And unlike Luxe, Persistence isn't as drying as a matte color and has a creamy consistency. Maybe I shouldn't call the color orange because you'll think of the crayon color, so technically the lipstick has brown undertones. I was super excited about this shade as I think it's absolutely gorgeous!

MAC Naked Lunch Eyeshadow
I needed a base color to wear on my bottom lid and was never satisfied with any of the colors I had as they came out too bright/light. I was told about Naked Lunch which is described as a minimal pink with shimmer, frost finish eyeshadow.  I know you're thinking pink as a neutral, but it matches my complexion perfectly! I want to know how to they come up with these names, must be a crazy story behind this one!

Becca Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed
Why have I never heard of Becca Cosmetics before? I've gone through so many different highlighters in the past year but this one came highly recommended! The Opal Pearl shade is a champagne color with a frosted golden finish.  It’s an intensely pigmented, and looks like crushed gemstones in the compact. It makes your skin luminous and reflective of light. Watch this video starting at the 2:36 min mark to see how to apply your contour and highlighter. 

MAC Brush 188
I got this duo fibre brush to apply my highlighter.

e.l.f. Studio Hydrating Under Eye Primer 
Primes the under eye area to help prevent concealer from setting into fine lines and wearing off. Infused with Vitamins C & E, Shea, Green Tea, Aloe, and Ginko Biloba to nourish and condition the skin. The sheer, silky smooth texture reduces the appearance of fine lines, puffiness, and wrinkles.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray
This is an oil-free setting spray that locks in your makeup to last all day. Perfect in the summertime or for weddings so your makeup stays in place and doesn't disappear.  This is a dupe for Urban Decay's setting spray which is twice the price.
