June Favorites!

the best drugstore beauty products

June has been the month of drugstore beauty for me. The drugstore always has great makeup products but this year drugstore brands are particularly amazing.

Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer
I've been using this bronzer since April. I've only included it in my favorites now because this month I realized that I've been reaching for this one over my other bronzers. I have the shade Bronzer which is the darker of the two shades available. It's light enough for my pale skin. I know everyone has been raving about this bronzer that's because it's just so good. It smells like coconut, piña coladas, the beach, vacations. The texture is extremely soft, like butter as the name suggests. It's easy to apply as it glides onto the skin and blends in effortlessly. It contains some shimmer but it's unnoticeable when applied. I would say it has a satin finish. It gives life to your skin.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Blush in Apri-Cot in the Middle and Rosé Champagne
These blushes are amazing. I've known about them for years but none of the shades appealed to me. When they got reformulated and added the shades Apri-Cot in the Middle and Rosé Champagne I knew I had to have them. They're extremely pigmented and you need the tiniest amount of product especially if you have fair skin. Both shades are shimmery and give your cheeks a natural glow. Rosé Champagne is a bronzy shade with a peachy pink undertone. It's probably my favorite of the two. Apri-Cot in the Middle is what it says on the tin, an apricot shade. I've never worn an orange toned blush because it always seemed intimidating but I really like it. These two blushes are must-haves in my opinion. They're just as good as high end blushes for a fraction of the price.

CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Sphynx
This lipstick has become one of my favorite lipsticks. It's the perfect everyday nude. It's a peachy nude. The colour is pinker than Chanel's Adrienne and lighter than MAC's Velvet Teddy. It's very comfortable to wear throughout the day and has a satin finish. The lasting power is about 6 hours. If you're a lover of nude lipsticks you need this one in your life. If you only get one shade from this collection it needs to be this one. I think it would look beautiful on any skin tone.

Another Oh Hae Young - I had mixed feelings about this drama while watching it but I ended up loving it. This is a drama that you’ll either really love or really hate. It’s unique in the fact that it’s not your typical rom-com.  I would describe it as a serious romance without the heaviness of a melodrama. It has its cheesy moments but it has lots of angst. If you’re looking for something a little different this one’s for you. The acting was amazing, the cinematography was beautiful and the OST was nice. I know some people dropped it towards the middle. If you’re thinking about dropping it stick with it till the end because I promise it will be worth it. The main lesson you should take away from this drama is to love unconditionally.

Back to 1989 - This is a time travel drama that was nicely done. (Splash Splash Love is probably the best time travel drama.) It’s a good story. It didn’t drag on as much as some Taiwanese dramas do. The romance was adorable! The main couple has a special place in my heart. I loved them so much. This drama is proof that true love conquers all. It also places a large focus on the importance of family. It slightly exposes rape culture. The ending felt incomplete but I enjoyed it overall.

  1. I've heard and seen so much about the butter bronzer that I now want to go check it out.


    1. It's one of those fool proof bronzers. It's perfect for everyday, even when you're in a rush. You can never overdo it with this bronzer because no matter how much you apply it always looks natural. You should definitely give it a try. :)
