June Favorites

Smashbox Full Exposure Palette - $49
At first I hated this palette because I was having a major fallout problem with the shimmer shades, they were way too messy and didn't stick, but my friend Leila would always use it at work and she loved it, so I played around with it a little bit more, wetting the shadows and using the brush that comes with the palette and now I can say that I like it as a whole. My favorite part is still all of the matte shades, I love that they come in warm and cool versions and that they're easy to blend and layer. The brush it comes with is AWESOME. Use it... really!

Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Shadow in 'Pixie Dust' - $32
This pigment/glitter/eyeshadow is beautiful! I have been using it daily and it spices up any look. The way that it catches the light is unbelievable, it creates a glowy iridescence that is just stunning! I layer it over my finished eyeshadow look to give a bit of extra shine and drama. Pro Tip: I would advise to pat it on your eye with your finger, mixing it with the liquid primer that comes with the shadow has never worked out very well for me, it just gets sticky and clumpy and very unattractive.

Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer - $45
This moisturizer improved my cell turnover rate and my skin became clearer and smoother. I started seeing results after the first use, so I immediately fell in love with this product. I experienced some minor stinging, but it was not unpleasant and it just made me feel like it was working. This product will help clear pores, soften lines & wrinkles and improve the brightness and clarity of the skin.

Peter Thomas Roth AHA/BHA Acne Clearing Gel - $54
This advanced treatment worked wonders for my skin. I paired it 
with the PTR moisturizer to get the results I wanted, and it left me with softer, smoother skin and more clarified pores. You will see blemishes appear while using these two products because they pull out the congestion in the skin but it's so worth it because once your skin decongests it looks flawless!

Here are some of the ingredients and what they do: 

-Salicylic Acid 2% (Beta Hydroxy Acid): Reduces the appearance of blemishes, and discourages the formation of blackheads and blemishes by minimizing pore size. 

-Glycolic Acid Complex 10% (Alpha Hydroxyl Acid): Supports natural cell turnover. 

-Licorice: Helps ease irritation and even skintone. 

-Retinyl Palmitate: Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
