The Beauty Rundown | June 2016

Here are this month's reviews:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in That Glow
First Impression | I swatched these with my fingers and they were extremely pigmented. It looked as if I dipped my finger in gold (not exaggerating). It's nice that this palette comes with four different shades. This palette costs $52, so compared to Becca's highlighter (which are $42) you get more bang for your buck.
Review | When does ABH ever disappoint? All of these shades showed up really well on the skin and lasted throughout the day. They give you a really nice glow. Although, if I were to choose between Becca highlighters and ABH, I would pick Becca. I feel that these highlighters are more subtle compared to Becca. But if you're going for that look, then by all means this palette would be perfect for you. Overall, I still really like this palette. Another plus is that the pans are removable! I can throw one of them into a z palette if I go travelling.

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick 
First Impression | This is really smooth and creamy. I picked up the shade Sake. As for application, it goes on nicely and is pigmented. I like that it doesn't feel dry as it actually feels moisturizing. I also like the smell of the lipstick! It smells fruity but not to the point that it's overpowering.
Review | The lipstick feels really nice on the lips throughout the whole wear and looks nice as well! It doesn't sink into the lines of my lips. This also, to my surprise, lasts very long. I didn't feel the need to reapply throughout any of the times I wore this lippie. I'm for sure thinking about picking out a few more shades.

The Estee Edit by Estee Lauder Pore Vanishing Stick
First Impression | This product reminds me a lot of Benefit's Stay Flawless 15hr Primer. It comes in stick form so all you have to do is apply it straight from the stick.
Review | I really like this. I don't have large pores but it definitely smooths and blurs any lines or what little pores are visible. I prefer this over Benefit's primer because this one doesn't dry up compared to it. This Estee Lauder one is much more smoother in application and feels better on the face. It makes a good base for my makeup.
