June Purchases

I had great intentions of getting this post up June 30 but that didn’t quite work out. But here it is now!  I purchased less this month in beauty and spent more of my hard earned cash on Summer clothing. It was a good trade off!! 🙂 IMG_6060 IMG_6062 I have not had nearly enough time to play with this palatte as I just finally got it. Long story short. I ordered it from Amazon US site and had it shipped to my friend that was in Florida and I had to wait for her to come home before I actually got it in my hands. It saved me money which was great but I need more time before giving any real feedback. I did however order this after receiving a sample in one of my Ipsy bags and really liked that sample. I really like using these wet it enhances the color. IMG_6063 When I got a sample of this in an Ipsy bag I fell in love immediately and could’t wait to get it from my friend. However, it is not the same as the Ipsy sample, as that one was tinted and this one is not. So, I do feel that one gives your face a white “glow”. However, once you put on foundation or powder you do not notice it. But I wanted this for the beach so I could reapply and reapply without any makeup and still have a bit of coverage and sun protection, Even though I double checked it before ordering I ended up with the wrong one. I am a bit disappointed as the Ipsy sample is holy grail face sunscreen. Any tips on where I can buy this in the USA please share as I am hoping to get to the Maine in late Fall. I can’t order from the company on line and Amazon is way too expensive with shipping and all.  This is the one I wanted.  IMG_6064 I bought this after reading about it on Pores for Thought I was intrigued. A facial cleansing oil? I do really like this product. It is like smearing oil all over your face and them BAM add a little water and it washed off completely. It removes make up and leaves your skin feeling fresh. When in The Body Shoppe I was reminded about how they do beauty with heart. With so many chemically filled beauty products that are produced unfairly this reminded me to be a more conscious shopper. I was also reminded of this at LUSH when I purchased these charity pots for my co-workers as a thank you gift for a great year. All the money ( excluding tax) from these pots when purchased do directly towards a given charity. The charity is identified on the top. I purchased ones that gave back to education in some way.  LUSH is another great company that is very conscience of the products they are making. The mini size of these pots were 6.95. 05236 IMG_6067 Another great Body Shoppe purchase was this bronzer. It gives your skin a light glow and a real I just been to the beach look. I love this product. 81m325oBQzL._SX466_ Finally, I made my first Butter nail polish purchased. Hey, everyone raves about it! I had to try it out. These are minis purchased for 20.00 US plus shipping and tax. In the above picture you can see I have Green Fairy on. I had to do three coats to get good coverage. It didn’t start out well but I am only on day 2 of wearing so I can’t give a verdict just yet. I do however, really like the color of Green Fairy.

The girls at work who I adore but will not be working with in the Fall gave me this beautiful MK electric blue clutch.  They know how to make a girl feel special. IMG_6069

  1. Great stuff! I love the Nude ‘Tude palette! I need to pick mine up more often though. I try to switch out my palettes and make sure I get good use out of all of them. This month I spent a little more on summer clothes rather than beauty too. 🙂 xo

    • I am glad you really like yours that gives me extra hope I will too. I don’t know why but my summer clothes don’t seem to last that long. especially t-shirts. Well, maybe I do know why…gardening, beach, camping, sunscreen all over them. BUT I love Summer!!
