Humble Beauty Opinion :: June!

Last Saturday of the month = Humble Beauty Opinion, 
my monthly subscriptions, reviews, wish lists, and empties! 

This month's ipsy bag was pretty good, 
I am enjoying the innisfree intensive hydrating serum, I have been using it at nighttime, 
I am not a fan of the PS Cosmeceutical "Georgia Peach", 
it is a weird color and I am just not attracted to it. 
The star of this month's bag is the City Color eyeshadow in "Skinny Latte", I haven't really used it as an eyeshadow but as a highlighter! 
& it is AMAZING, blinding highlighter! 

 This month's Sephora Play was also a good one:
I could always use more makeup remover and this Clinique one is nice.
I have yet to try a Too Faced melted lipstick and this one in Queen B is quickly become a fave! 
I feel like I have seen this Sol De Janeiro "Brazilian Bum Bum Cream" everywhere, it smells so nice, I am going to miss this sample when it is done =(
still have to try the other products but I am excited about them! 

My Walmart Beauty Box finally arrived, 
seriously they said it shipped in May... and arrived two days ago. 
I had to contact them over and over again and they ended up sending me a new one. 
It is an okay box, since it was so much work to get this one, I cancelled my seasonal subscription. 
Was not worth the effort ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍♀️

I also got a PINCHme "box" this month, 
I used to get really excited about these, 
but they became unrelaiable and the samples are not worth it. 
Seriously, just a packet... 
 In other news, 
I got an email that Plenti Points were going to stop being a thing, 
so I decided to redeem my 502 points for $5.02, because why not?
I got:
 a new Wet n Wild Brรปlรฉe shadow (best for the brow bone & setting undereye, always a favorite!)
The Wet n Wild shadow in Nudecomer, I was kinda disappointed that this is a more gel formation 
but it is a pretty color, but even with primer and setting spray, it creases. 
Which never happens for me. 
I also got more cotton balls because we were out, 
being out of cotton balls is surprisingly so annoying. 
I spent .60 and used change and was excited to redeem my points before they are gone forever. 

I also redeemed some CVS coupons and ExtraBucks for some new e.l.f. products: 
finally got a new lip exfoliator, BB Cream in "fair", & Expert Liquid Eyeliner in "Jet Black"
these products are all repurchases and are some of my favorites, 
$16 of savings with coupons, I paid $1.64 {also in change from my wallet}

My sisters and I got a whole bunch of MoroccanOil products from my family for my graduation,
they are amazing and came with this awesome bag! 

Influenster also sent me some new products from Farmacy, free for review purposes.
I find that Vitamin C works really well on my skin so I was really excited to try these products. 
I love the mask, the changing color is so fun!
I was surprised at how much I like the meltaway balm, such a gentle makeup remover! 
Loving both! 
Thanks Influenster & Farmacy!
 Speaking of face masks, 
I broke out one of my "Animal Design" masks that I bought at Watson's in Thailand,
to the chagrin of both of my puppies: 
 Maggie is more concerned than Barry... 

It reminded me of one of my favorite memes: 


This month's wishlist is a quite extensive,
I feel like end of spring / start of summer is when all the fun bright makeup comes out! 

I was most excited for the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Vault Collection: 

I mean these palettes speak to my soul!
I want them all! 

But then...
it all got "delayed"
All I want to know is WHENNNNNNN!

I also appreciated this side by side from Trendmood1 on Instagram
really shows how the collection goes together and expands on the color stories: 

Until getting those new babies, 
I have been obsessing about these two eye makeup looks:

This pink is STUNNING as  ๐Ÿ‘€on benefitcosmetics on Instagram,
 I want to recreate this look so bad! 

& I really want this pink sunset eye too, as seen on Pinterest, originally from makeupgeek

& this mauve, steal, blue look I found on Pinterest is speaking to my darker side, 

This "puke brown" shadow on lolalynnmitchell on Instagram
makes Uninterrupted from MAC high on my "to buy" list:

I am also loving this "Doomsday" and "Brocade" shadows from babybatbeauty
*side note: the shade "Dragonfly" is amazing

I love the color story of this alamar cosmetics "Reina Del Caribe Vol.1" palette, 
it looks so pretty! 

I am also intrigued by the new Urban Decay "born to run" palette
lots of great pops of color! 

I want to try the loveluxebeauty setting spray too, 
still need to repurchase their blue high lighter... 
I loved it and was so sad when mine broke =(

I really want to try this Too Faced Melted matte-tallic lipstick that Trendmood1 posted on Instagram:

I love this glittery red lipstick from Too Faced that Trendmood1 posted on Instagram too:

I am curious to try these makeup drops that I saw on
I love that diffused pink look:

This month's empties: 
bath empties: Scentsy wax cubes in "Bergamot & Solar Dirftwood" & "White Tea & Cactus"- love both of these! Repurchased the Bergamot set! / Watson's Animal Design Facial Mask- purchased in Thailand {see the creepiness of this mask above ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป} / Watsons Facial Mask in "Energizing & Moisturizing" in tomato- kinda weird because it does smell like tomato but I like it! / Clay Mask for Face & Body- I like this, I feel like it tightens my face, purchased in Thailand at a 7/11 / Watsons Facial Mask in  "Refreshing & Moisturizing" x2- I like these and my skin feels hydrated after / Fair Trade Cane Sugar Shampoo- from Novotel in Thailand, I don't really enjoy this, it don't think foams enough and leaves my hair dry / Sunsilk co-creations "Smooth & Manageable" conditioner- I bought this in Thailand since one of our hotels didn't have conditioner and I really liked it! / Ouai "Treatment Masque"- this stuff smells fancy, it was okay, I don't think that hair masks do anything for me really...  / Nexxus "Intensely hydrating masque"- also smalls fancy and is nice / e.l.f makeup remover cleansing cloths- I think these may be my favorite makeup remover wipes, they are so big and work well / BTZ "Rock On" Dry Shampoo from Sally's Beauty- this is my favorite dry shampoo, works well, smells good but the smell doesn't linger too much and no white cast, love it! / Revlon Colorsilk buttercream in "Burgundy"- such a good hair color, loving it / Up & Up "blemish controlling apricot scrub"- this is the Target version, I think it is a little too harsh the original St. Ives one is the best / Flash Tattoo- I wore this at my grad party and it was lots of fun! It lasted like two days and I think I've had this for years now / Soapbox body wash- I enjoyed this / Thann "Body Wash"- I love this scent- reminds me of my honeymoon / Fair Trade Cane Sugar Shower Gel for Novotel from Thailand- this was okay, something about these products that are just ehhh / Trader Joe's 100% Pure jojoba oil- I have been loving this, I use it for my nails and my face before bed, I need a new one! / Mary Kay "Satin Hands & Body" Cleaning Gel and Buffing Cream- I liked this, especially the buffing cream, it was nice to use in the shower / Mary Kay "Satinhands" hand softener, satin smoothie hand scrub, hand cream- also nice products but this sample packaging is annoying

beauty empties: Almay intense i-color in "black raisin"- I thought this was going to be the perfect purple/red eyeliner but it is too sparkly and doesn't look like anything on the eye... / Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics "Kitty Pink" blush via Ipsy- this was one of my FAVORITE blushes but the packaging broke and then I dropped it on the floor and it died =( will need to buy a new one... / Guess "Dare" perfume sample- I loved this, and now have this scent on my wishlist! / Atelier cologne in "Clementine California"- a nice refreshing summer scent / Mary Kay Satin Hands hand cream- this is nice and hydrating / Avene "Rich Compensating Cream"- I love this as a facial moisturizer, so hydrating / No 7 Restore & Renew "Face & Neck Multiaction" serum- I like this but I am not sure I like it enough to purchase / Maybelline Age Rewind in "Brightener" & "Neutralizer" both of these are amazing, favorites and have already been re-purchased! / Boo Boo Cover Up- this is the best concealer VERY high coverage and I loved it- got it from Ipsy and lasted forever / it cosmetics "Bye Bye Undereye in "Light (Ultra Fair)"- this was so THICK, I have heard good things about this but it was a little too thick for the under eye / benefit "high beam"- I hate this sample packaging, impossible to get out so I had to cut the top off and I ended up adding it to my foundation for a little glow / Covergirl Smothers "715 Translucent Medium"- this used to be my everyday powder, this one is quite old / Essie in "Blushing Bride"- I though this was going to be perfect for a wedding nail polish (5 years ago at this point) but it is so sheer that it doesn't look like anything, time to get rid of it / Eau Roma Water Toner Water from Lush- I really enjoyed starting my makeup routine with this spray, might rephrase in the future! / Klorane eye makeup remover- this is a nice gentle makeup remover, I enjoyed it / Urban Decay "All Nighter" setting spray- a classic and a favorite, need to purchase again, yes it is worth it! / OUAI Rose Hair Oil- I enjoyed this product, I am always nervous about oil in my hair since I can be quite oily / Hello Kitty pencil case- I used this for my makeup brushes when I travel and the zipper broke, I am so sad! I loved these and they were perfect for protecting my brushes 

& this post from colourpopcosmetics on Instagram
is so true, but I still want more!

Faves for Friday :: Fruit on my feet!

When I first saw these fruity loafers on jamieparis_ on Instagram
I had to know where she got them & was hoping that they would be affordable 
so I could add them to my growing loafer collection 

She said she got them from Kohls and I thought "YES!"
I found and ordered them immediately {along with my two new quilts!}, 
& fell in love with the watermelon version too, for around $21 each. 
& those pineapple ones are cute too, but I did not purchase them {at least not yet}

Love me some fruity feet! 

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Zenni Optical, necklace- Hunt & Orchard, cardigan- Peter Pilotto x Target, tank- from Thailand market, shorts- Hunter x Target, flats- Kohl's, bag- vintage Coach {thrifted} 

We went out for all-you-can-eat sushi at Masa,
sometimes you just have to go all out...

I mean it is payday after all! 

 After my new quilts and my new fruity loafers, 
I had $30 in Kohls cash when I stumbled across this scalloped table,
it was on sale for $84, I had $30 Kohl's cash and used a coupon to get it for $50!
I though it would be perfect next to my makeup desk in the attic & it is! 

I built it in the kitchen with the "help" of this girl...

My favorite part is when she looses it after knocking it on the door.

She kept taking the cardboard away, 
& tried to carry it upstairs to our room!

Speaking of our bedroom:

But then had to reassemble it to have it be tucked under the desk, 
it worked perfectly! 

Maybe with all these savings, I should add these Bowie loafers to my collection,
