Buzzing Around The Beauty Scene: June, part 1

From a tint so perfect you’ll dream about it to a soothing masque that smells like a tropical cocktail, here’s part one of what’s new on counters and shelves this month.

Jane Iredale’s Dream Tint SPF 15 – This product wins the lofty title of The Beauty Bug’s Product of the Month! She’s been waiting so long to gush about this new tinted moisturizer/base, and it’s finally hit the shelves. The Beauty Bug especially loves the texture of it – it’s not wet or runny like others She’s tried. It boasts a unique lightweight mousse consistency feel weightless on the skin. Other product benefits include UVA/UVB SPF 15 protection, sea lipids to help to improve skin’s elasticity and prevent water loss and boron nitride to minimize the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores. Even The Beauty Bug’s co-workers agree – they love the sheer coverage, smooth finish. Dream Tint is available in 5 shades ranging from light to dark and is $36.

theBalm Two Timer Mascara - The Beauty Bug has just welcomed two new men into Her life – Marcus Lashalot, and Johnny Finetune. The brush duo is quite a pair. Marcus is twisted, and provides Her with volume without any smudges or flakes, while Johnny is meticulous and can always be counted on to define and lengthen. At times they bicker, but in the end, they work well together. Two mascaras in one for $19.

Bobbi Brown’s Bronzed Pink Collection – This sun-kissed collection gives you that “I just spent a day at the beach look”. It includes two limited-edition metallic eye shadows (Bronze Pink and Penny), three new shades of her award winning tinted lip-balm (Golden Pink, Desert Bronze, Bronzed Pink) and Bobbi’s new Oil Control Lotion SPF 15 with seaweed and lavender. The Beauty Bug loves the tinted-lip balms – they are slowly becoming Her go-to summer lip product.

Yes to Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butter - Available in berry, carrot, citrus, melon and mint – these are the first 95% USDA Certified Organic Lip Balm to hit drugstores. Find these Paraben-free, petroleum & phthalate-free balms at Walgreens for $3.69.

June Jacobs Cooling and Soothing Masque – The Beauty Bug could smell the delicious mix of tropical ingredients in this masque before She even took it out of the box. What she was smelling was the pineapple, mango, papaya and coconut extracts. The an ultra-gentle, paraben and preservative free gel formula helped to refresh and moisturize Her skin, while softening and revitalizing. The Beauty Bug will definitely reach for this masque on those sweltering 90 degree days in the middle of the summer while She sips a mojito.
