Super Late May - June Favorites and Update

Hi Girlies~
 It hit me the other day that I haven't done my monthly favorites for 2 months! Sorry that I've been slacking off lately - after I came back from Korea, I went on a short trip(yup haha) to Monterey with my friends and then I moved to another apartment. And I can tell you, things are *chaotic*. So here is my super duper late favorites for you. Better late than never, right? ;)
1. TonyMoly Fresh Aqua Cooling 24 Eye Stick
I just noticed how long and stupid the name of this thing is as I type lol. Despite the silly name, this product is beyond amazing. It's basically an eye serum in a stick form that has a cooling effect. So it's really refreshing and easy to use. I apply this under my eyes whenever I feel tired or whatever during the day and it really lifts up my mood.  
2. Victoria's Secret Bombshell Body Mist
Instead of using a perfume, I've been using this body spray for the past two months. Normally, I don't like VS scents, because they are too sweet for my taste, but this is sooo nice. It has a fruity floral scent (like most VS products do), but not too overpowering. It's really fresh and light - excellent for the summer time!
3. MAC Cremeblend Blush in Something Special + MAC 188 Brush
I think this blush became one of my HG products. Suits my skin so well that I rarely reach for other blushes - even my trust worthy Desire blush! 188 only helps to make it better.
Swatch in my April Favorites
4. L'oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara
I hated this mascara when I first got it, because it didn't do anything to my short and stubborn lashes. However, as it dried up a bit (like after 2-3 weeks), it started to work and now I understand why so many girls love this mascara. It separates, lengthens, volumizes, and holds like a dream! love how it doesn't grab too much of the product when you pull out the wand, due to their new 'clean sweep system' or whatever it's called. Packaging is pretty cute and decent as well. The only bad thing I can say about this mascara is the awful scent. It's a floral scent that doesn't smell like a flower.
5. Etude House Collagen Moistfull Mask Sheet
I tried almost every single mask from Etude House and The Face Shop (I know it's kind of crazy), but this has to be my favorite among them. It feels and looks like any other essence mask, but the result is outstanding. Makes my skin so soft and I notice how it's so much easier to apply makeup the next day, because the skin is in it's best state. They are around $2 each, so the price is good as well. However, I will say that the mask is definitely on the watery side, so expect dripping here and there. 

That was my short May-June Favorites, hope you enjoyed reading.
Much Love,
Amy
