June Favorites

June Favorites - Aussie, Birchbox, The Style Genre, LeadingLadyBeauty, Clinique Color Pop - Southern New Yorker

Time for a Monthy Favorites! This month I've been loving a few new makeup bits, blogs, vlogs, and hair products; read on to see!

1. Clinique Color Pop Lipstick

Words cannot possibly express my love for this lipstick!! I might just have to write a song or make an interpretive dance to express my love.  I went with a fairly classic orangy-red, Poppy Pop, for my first tube, which I also featured in The Orange Edit! Gorgeous color, extremely long lasting (I ate two meals without even touching it up and it still looked flawless!) and not at all drying! I fully plan on buying the entire range! (Whoa there, Audra!) My next top picks for colors are Wow Pop, Punch Pop, and Passion Pop!

2. Aussie Scrunch Hairspray

I picked these up a few weeks ago for a beach vacation and fell in love! The scrunch spray is amazing for holding curls without making them crunchy (yuck!) and the dry shampoo is fabulous, no white residue and it leaves your hair smelling amazing!

3. L'Oreal Paris Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara

L'Oreal Paris Waterproof Million Lashes Mascara - Southern New Yorker - June Favorites

The non-waterproof formula of this has been one of my favorite drugstore mascaras for a long time, but since I was going on a beach trip, I decided to pick up the waterproof version. HOLY COW what have I been missing?! This is a huge claim, but it may just be the best mascara EVER! It lengthens, defines, not quite volumizing, but paired with a volumizing mascara it's perfect! Best of all, it holds ALL DAY. The only drawback for me is that I have to use actual makeup remover to get it all off at night, (man, I'm lazy...) but that's a price I'm willing to pay.

4. Leading Lady Beauty

One of the best parts of my morning is watching YouTubers while I apply my makeup. I of course watch all the major Beauty-gurus (Zoe, Tanya, Ingrid, Vivianna, Essie, Naomi, etc) but I recently stumbled upon Jade from LeadingLadyBeauty. She's peppy, fun, gorgeous, and her videos are so fun to watch! I definitely recommend checking out her channel here

5. The Style Genre

Now that I covered a Vlog I've been loving, let me show you a Blog I've been loving! The Style Genre! Kayla has covet-worthy style and amazing photos to showcase them! Her outfits inspire me and I cant get enough! Check out The Style Genre to see more!

6. BirchBox

Finally, I thought I would add a quick bit about my June Birchbox. I was so happy with all of the products that came this month! First the Oribe Texturizing Spray is amazing! A bit pricey for me, but well worth it if you're looking for a small splurge! Secondly, the Harvey Prince Hello Body Cream, is one of my new favorite lightweight creams! The smell is light and heavenly, it absorbs quickly, and leaves my skin feeling sliky.

Next is the Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner, I was so excited to get a blue liner, as I've been wanting one for awhile now. The color is amazing (though it did take two coats) however, the staying power is not great. Next, the Vasanti Brighten Up Exfoliating Cleanser! I adored this, it feels so luxurious and fresh on the skin! Again, a bit of a splurge, but so worth it!

Lastly, the Coola Mineral Suncreen and BB Cream, I was a bit scared when I first saw it, because it looks too dark for my skintone, but it's so sheer and radiant that it just gave a sunkissed glow! This would be amazing for a minimal-makeup routine or a beach weekend!
