Monthly Favorites: June 2015


I didn’t wear a lot of face makeup in the month of June, due to a lingering condition from when I accidentally sprayed my face with cinnamon bark oil a couple of months ago and resulted in a minor chemical burn. I did manage to wear a few face products like bronzer and highlighter, but BB/CC creams and face powders were a no-go.

All products featured are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.

Method Body Wash in Desert Lily

Price Tag: $4.99 USD
Where to Buy: In Target stores; online

I finally finished my Pacifica Persian Rose Body Wash (my review here) and have been able to try out this LE Method Body Wash. I took a chance on the scent Desert Lily and I’ve ended up really liking it. I realize that the last shower gel I used was also a floral, but normally I don’t use floral body washes that often, instead preferring vanilla based scents.

Like the Pacifica body wash, the Method version is very concentrated. I expect to use it for the next several months.

Disney Princess Belle e.l.f. Face Palette

Price Tag: $6.99 USD
Where to Buy: In Walgreens stores; online

I’ve used this little face palette a lot this month. The highlighter may have too much golden shimmer and the blush not enough pigmentation, but it is handy to have all three face products in one palette.

SOHO Disney Princess Mulan Cosmetic Bag

Price Tag: $7.99 USD
Where to Buy: In Walgreens stores

I just love this little Mulan makeup bag that I picked up from Walgreens. The watercolor design is so pretty. The bag is part of the LE Disney Dare to Dream Collection exclusively at Walgreens. Mulan is one of my two favorite Disney princesses and it’s great to see her finally getting attention.

ORLY Color Blast Nail Polish

Price Tag: $10.99 USD
Where to Buy: In Walgreens stores

The Mulan Cri-Kee Mini Nail Kit from the Walgreens exclusive Disney Dare to Dream Collection has three polishes, of which two are shown here: Princess Ping and Strength & Discipline.

I was worried that Princess Ping would be too light and clash with my warm skin tone, but the creme coral is very flattering on me.

Strength & Discipline is a glitter unlike any other I own. There are white, pink and lilac bars, along with unexpected white squares, amidst a smattering of tiny white flakes.
