I simply cannot believe that June is already over, what the heck, where is time flying to?? It seriously feels like yesterday when I shared my May favorites with you guys, but anyhoo these are the things that I have been loving for June:
Essence Lipstick in the shade Barely There
This has been my go – to lipstick since I purchased it. I love everything about it: the packaging (a matte black finish tube with the Essence logo molded on the top of the cap), the color (a warm, nude – pinkish color),the texture (super soft and creamy, which allows it to glide on easily) and the fact that it is long lasting.
Elf Little Black Beauty Book Warm Edition Palette
The colors in this palette are perfect for creating wintery makeup looks and have been my go – to palette for creating my eye looks. It has 48 colors, so you have a variety to choose from. I also love the size of it, because it is super easy to carry around, you can literally just pop this in your handbag, without it taking up too much space.
RK by Kiss nail polish in the shade “Shades of Grey”
With winter here, I have been loving this color, I just feel that it goes with most of my winter outfits. I love the consistency of this nail polish, it is not runny, not too thick, just a perfect in – between that allows it to apply very smoothly. I have had this nail polish for such a long time now and it hasn’t dried up yet, which is super amazing!
It might come as a surprise, but I’m addicted to this show – I mean come on – lots of hunks featured (BONUS!!) and I’m so happy that this season’s Bachelorette is Rachel. She has such a fun personality and she knows what she wants, plus she has gap teeth (I love this, because I have gap teeth as well) I’m team Peter all the way, he’s such a gentleman, so good looking (drool), they both have gap teeth and they would make such cute babies.
I freaking loved this movie!! Gal Gadot is such a badass, I don’t think anyone else would have done this role justice and to think she was 5 months pregnant while filming this movie, just makes her that much more of a badass!
Lecrae ft Tori Kelly – I’ll find you (This girl’s voice is like butter and for this song she teamed up with Gospel rapper Lecrae to produce a song that tells you to hold on. I love these types of inspirational songs and both of them are amazing artists, so it makes for a great collaboration. More collabs in the future please)
La’Porsha Renae – Breathe ( I’ve been following this girl since her debut on American Idol and like the rest of her fans, I was devastated when she didn’t get the American Idol title. I am however glad to see that she is putting out some of her own music.
DJ Khaled ft Rihanna & Bryson Tiller – Wild Thoughts (RiRi is back with a bang! This is such a fun summer song and is basically a remake of Carlos Santana’s classic Maria Maria)
Sigala & Ella Eyre – Came here for love (I’m so obsessed with this girl’s voice and this is also a fun summery song!)
Favorite Instagram Accounts:
Mihlali Ndamase is a South African Beauty YouTuber and certified makeup artist, but I love her Instagram account because she shares her insanely amazing fashion style on her account as well. She is such a beauty with a golden heart (she is the co – founder of the Siyasizana Foundation) and her outfits and makeup are always on point!
Favorite YouTube Accounts:
My favorite YouTube account this month is Clothesencounters, which was created by Jenn Im, a Korean –American fashion and beauty vlogger. She shares tutorials, lifestyle advice, as well as outfit ideas, which I definitely find useful. I love her outfit videos the most, as it definitely gives you ideas and ways on how to wear items that you would not normally think of pairing together.
