Swatches: Rose Gold, Hibiscus Bloom, Malibu Soleil, Beach Nectar

I actually purchased the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette back in May when it was first released. I’ve had it on my desk ever since. I usually leave the things I have to blog about piled up on top of my desk so it’s gotten a lot of action. I usually walk over to my toolbox to look for face products, but since this palette has been within reach I haven’t bothered to use anything else. Which isn’t a bad thing. A bit lazy maybe.

I don’t know much about Chrissy Teigen so I can’t say that I’m a fan. But I thought the palette was very pretty and I was really digging the shades. It includes a blush in the shade Hibiscus Bloom which is a golden pink coral, a bronzer in the shade Malibu Soleil which is a medium amber, a highlighter in the shade Rose Gold which is a subtle gold with rose, and another highlighter in the shade Beach Nectar which is a juicy apricot with gold.

The shades are all very nicely pigmented. They all applied and blended beautifully. It’s a really beautiful palette that offers a more natural glow. The shades really do compliment each other nicely. Even the bronzer. Although there have been times I was in a rush and opted just for the blush and highlighter and still ended up with a really beautiful look.

You can see this palette in action below. I’m wearing Rose Gold on the inner corner of my eyes and Beach Nectar on my cheeks, cupid’s bow, and nose.

Swatches: Balm Springs Blush, Pink Cloud

1. NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé in Pink Cloud
2. Margaret Dabbs London Treatment-Enriched Nail Polish in Green Daylily
3. theBalm Cosmetics Balm Springs Blush
4. Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream
5. DOUCCE Maxlash Volumizer Mascara

I’m not too crazy about my June Ipsy Glam Bag. The bag itself is cute and there are a few items that will get some use, but nothing really stood out to me.

First up is the NYX Professional Makeup Whipped Lip & Cheek Soufflé in Pink Cloud. It can be used on your lips or cheeks. It looks really pretty and pigmented in the swatch, but applies rather sheer on the lips. It also applied very streaky and made for a really bad look. I haven’t tested this on my cheeks yet, but so far I’m not that impressed.

The Margaret Dabbs London Treatment-Enriched Nail Polish in Green Daylily is a really pretty nail polish. And you can never have enough nail polish. Am I right?

I’m pretty sure I already have a sample of theBalm Cosmetics Balm Springs Blush. Their little samples are so cute. And it’s always nice to have a nice neutral rose shade to pop in your makeup bag when you’re on the go.

The Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream doesn’t really sound like something I’d use. I might be passing this one along.

Last up is the DOUCCE Maxlash Volumizer Mascara. I’ve seriously got so many mascara samples laying around that I might have to pass this one along too. So that at least someone will use it.

The blush and nail polish will definitely get some use. So it’s not all bad. What did you get in your June bag?

Swatch: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub

After quite a few disappointing Play! boxes I’m really happy to report that the June box is a winner! I’m digging the Summer Starters theme.

Ok so I wasn’t too excited to receive another Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer, but at least it’s something I can use. Not that I’ll get much use from Benefit’s super tiny samples.

I was very excited to see Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub though! Kat Von D’s liquid lipsticks are some of the first I’ve tried and fell in love with. And I don’t already own K-Dub. It’s a gorgeous bold fuchsia that will really stand out this Summer.

The First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer is an oil-free priming moisturizer. It claims to brighten, smooth, and visibly blur pores and imperfections leaving your skin with a natural, dewy glow. I can definitely get some use from this.

I’m really digging the packaging on the IGK Rich Kid Coconut Oil Gel. It’s a coconut oil-infused gel. I assumed it would smell like coconut, but instead it smells like perfume. I don’t really wear gel, but maybe one of the guys can get some use of it.

I was also very excited to see the Ouai Rose Hair & Body Oil. I loved the past few Ouai products I’ve received. The Rose Hair & Body Oil claims to be a luxurious, fast absorbing oil that is rich in nutrients to illuminate and hydrate. I’ve only quickly tested it out and the smell isn’t so strong. I get a faint floral scent which is very nice if you’re sensitive to the stronger scents.

Last, but certainly not least is Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium. My only complaint here is that my sample bottle was only like 1/3 way full. And that’s a bummer because I really love this perfume.

Overall, I’d have to say the June box was a real winner. I was happy with everything and for the most part they’ll all get used up. No duds here!
