So I have been on a total product junkie binge. These are just a FEW of my top picks for the month of June. I purchased a few more items that will be popping up soon. As for these little lovelies, they have been my all-time favorites products (for now, I am such a PISCES). I try my best to keep it light during the warm weather but I don't like a total matte face.
The Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation has been something I have been using on and off since its big debut. At first, I hated it and I did a post about it a long time ago and changed my mind about it. I hate, let me repeat...I HATE the Optical Blurring brush they try to sell with it. I think it sucks, plain and simple.
The Urban Decay Naked Powder is the best finishing powder I have ever tried. It gives you the ultimate matte finish and diffuses the light. I absolutely LOVE this powder!
But....that leads me to the Marc Jacobs Face II brush, which in my humble opinion is the HOLY GRAIL of all brushes! Yep, kick rocks Sigma and Mac! I will post a separate review on this baby! :-)
The Rimmel Stay Matte is a good cheap primer...and I hate primers but this isn't fully silicone based. It is like a lotion but its cheap magic in a bottle. I am combo-oily...typically in my T-Zone and I wore this for over 12 hours with minimal shine around the 10th hour. Keep in mind, I tested this by working out in a full face (I know, I know...smh big NO-NO) and in hot weather (I should add that we have NO AIR CONDITIONING in GERMANY).
The Nars Laguna Bronzer speaks for itself. It's just that staple bronzer.
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette is just AMAZE-BALLS! Now, I will admit it will not work for everyone....I am not sure how it will look on my chocolate girls but its really a gorgeous palette if you just are a hoarder and want to add something new to your collection. It can do what other highlighters can so its not a MUST but it is finely milled and does not look like shimmer sitting on yo' face! Gives you that J. Lo glow!
