June Favorites

I can't believe that a month has gone by so fast. O.o 

So here's a compilation of the items that I really liked from the purchases I made this month. If you are a follower of my blog some of the items might be familiar,still, here is a recap of all the items that I am luvin' for the month of June:
24/7 Pencils 
Please refer to this link HERE for the review.

Skyscraper Multi-Benefit Mascara
- is definitely living up to its promise! It lengthens and curls my short eyelashes without  clumping and smudging on me. :) The only problem is it's really had to get here since it's not locally sold. Plus, it's kind of pricey.  
EcoTools - BAMBOO 5 piece brush set
Errr... I know I owe you guys a review. >,< 
PROS:
-Super soft! 
- Does not bleed nor shed.

- Does not prick my skin nor irritate my pores.
- Affordable.
- Environment friendly
I have used all the brushes and they lived up to my expectations. I know there are better brushes but I just love these! I particularly like the kabuki, powder brush and blending brush. :3 Although I have read some negative reviews about the blending brush. I guess it's just a case of "each to her own." :)

Cons:
- Hard to get in the Philippines.
- The cosmetic bag can be used for other purposes but not for storing the brushes as they don't fit in it. :/ If I force my brushes inside the bristles will get damaged and will loose their shapes, so NO-NO to the cosmetic bag. >o<"

Etude House Dear Darling Glass
-Don't get your hopes up yet. This gloss doesn't last as well as some high end brands do. I also don't think it will show up on anyone who has a medium to dark skin tone, but I simply adore the shimmer and its color. It also doesn't dry my lips although the color fades after a couple of hours or so.
The packaging is so-so but I definitely wasn't impressed with a scotch tape that was taped onto the cap. LOL! Well, it is cheap but that made it look a lot cheaper. :o/
If you're the kind of person who doesn't mind re-applying lipgloss every now and then, and if you are fair or have light skin tone and would want "princessy" glossy lips then feel free to check this one out. 

XL Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Here's my review.
MAC to the beach Hipness Blush and Splashing Lip Glass
I love the color of this blush! I know there are a lot of existing reviews as well as swatches of it that's why I won't review it anymore. 
I have fallen inlove with this blush when I saw its swatches on different blogs. It also didn't hurt that the packaging looked fresh and different. :)
My mom bought this for me along with the MAC eyeshadows ,but my youngest sister who doesn't like makeup at all, has suddenly mentally claimed this blush as hers. My mom says I should just give it to her since she doesn't have any makeup and she'll just buy another one for me but..... it's already out of stock. >o<" So now me and my lil sis share a co-ownership on this particular blush. LOL!
I have a review of the lipglass HERE.

What are the items that you currently like or would like to have in the future?

I really want to try Ecotools! Have you tried the blending brush with liquid foundation by any chance?? I'm wondering how well it stands up to that kind of abuse haha that's what I use mine for :) x
