Eye on June!
The market is always flooded with new products that claim to be the newest best thing. But what should you spend your hard-earned coins on? Well I have a few suggestions that may make you open your wallet.
Crayola launched a makeup line, Crayola Beauty, this month. Which is only available at ASOS. It consists of 58 vegan items with 95 shades available. Everything from eyes, lips, face, and brushes! Crayola is known for their vivid and wide shade range so expect these products to have pigment. True to the brand, the makeup products are in the traditional Crayola packaging. The price range isn’t bad either, in fact it is affordable as heck, ranging from $15 - $40. Get nostalgic and buy these goodies before they are gone.
High end fashion meets affordable makeup. You owe it to yourself to purchase a lipstick from the L’Oreal Paris x Balmain collection. The collection is designed by Olivier Rousteing, so you know it oozes luxury. They have 12 lipstick shades within three different themes: Rock, Couture, and Glamzone. The colors are rich and moisturizing with shades for anyone! Not to mention luxurious high-end packaging. Get the high fashion look but at the drugstore price.
Summer is literally right around the corner. When its hot outside none of us want to walk around with a face full of heavy makeup. Just launched is Benefit Cosmetics’ Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation. This foundation lets your skin shine through but also minimizes imperfections. Your skin still looks like skin. Not only is it breathable and buildable, it gives you a healthy glow while providing you sun protection with SPF 15.
Those of us who are of color, need to understand that we are not completely immune to the damage that the sun can do to our skin. One such product that is for people of color, created by a woman of color named KatonyaBreaux. She understood there is a need and market for sun protection for ethnic people. This sunscreen leaves no white residue at all! The products range from body sunscreen, hand cream, and lip tint, all with SPF! You will not regret this purchase.
Milk Cosmetics Kush Mascara. Yes, kush mascara. No stranger to out-of-the-box makeup, this revolutionary mascara has actual cannabis oil as its main ingredient. It helps nourish lashes, prevent fallout, and help create a smoother creamier application. The product also claims to give immense volume while keeping your lashes soft. At $24 this product is a steal especially with the ingredients. I don’t know about you but I have never seen a product quite like this before.
