June Beauty Favorites from IGTV
How to explain your hair color/cut goals to your stylist
I opted to post my favorites video over on the new IGTV If you want to watch it, click here! I’ll get back to putting them on YouTube next month, but in the interest of time as well as trying out this new platform I wanted to do it on that channel.
For those who aren’t on Instagram, I typed out my thoughts on these products for you!
If you aren’t using a silk pillowcase to protect your hair while you sleep, you should start immediately. It makes an enormous difference in how my hair looks on day 2 versus when I sleep without one. In fact, I’m so loyal to it I travel with one sometimes. When I saw that the same brand started making scrunchies, I had to get one. I wear my hair in a high ponytail on top of my head to sleep and the scrunchie keeps my hair up, without pressing a strong crease into it.
I mentioned the new Lancome Lacquer on my Instagram Stories a few weeks ago and highly recommend them. It’s a gloss type application that wears like a stain. And man they last long. I love the bright pinks, but they also have a good amount of other shades to try as well. They are super easy to wear and the kind of lip product you don’t even need a mirror for.
I’ve been wearing Essie’s Gel Couture on my nails recently and have been loving the colors “The It Factor”, “Style Stunner”, and “Matter of Fiction”.
Several times a week I’m wearing NARS Afterglow lip balm. It’s so hydrating and the most gentle pink shade. I’ve also still been loving Nudestix Gel Lip + Cheek color in Rebel. Such a fun pink for summer, and wears really nicely too.
The Hot Tools flat iron has gotten a lot of use lately, especially since I’m able to adjust the heat temperature on it. I’ve turned it down to about 370/390 to get smooth, straight hair without using excess heat. If you have challenging hair to get straight, invest in a flat iron like this one. If you just need a little smoothness or bend from the iron, Hot Tools is a great price and will get the job done beautifully.
I’ve been using L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara to add thickness to my lashes and it’s worked like a charm. It doesn’t necessarily add a lot of length or curl for me, but it definitely adds volume and fullness. I wear it on top of two coats of Benefit Roller Lash!
I love Bite’s Agave Lip Treatment, I wear it every single night when I go to bed. I tried fresh Sugar Peach Hydrating Balm recently and like the peach smell! I wish it was stronger, but in general I found it to be really hydrating! There is a caramel version available now!
I was so exited to try this new razor but it left much to be desired. It didn’t give me as close of a shave as I get with my mens Gillette razor, so I’ll use it up a bit then toss it.
What do you think of the IGTV feature? Have you been watching videos on it? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
