June 2024

It’s officially summer here in Arizona, we are really feeling the heat. Life has been a very busy whirlwind lately as we moved into our new location here at the Arizona Biltmore. We had our first event in our new store where we hosted founders from our favorite brands and had a Girls Night Out in tandem with the May Glam Bag event, which was such a success. I loved seeing all of you throughout the weekend of the grand opening through Glam Bag and thank you so much to everyone who came out to celebrate and support!

While the weather continues to heat up, I’m excited to step into the new season and the fun, playful energy that it brings. Willow just had her last day of school so we are looking forward to spending a lot more time with her and as a family. There’s such a vibrant energy associated with June. I’ve been loving me some makeup lately and my top 5 faves reflect that so find out below what I’ve been loving lately…

This exciting new set from Heretic has been flying off the shelves, so much so that we can’t keep it in stock! Set your back in stock notifications for this one because it has been such a hit. It comes with three of their most beautiful floral fragrances… Florgasm, Flower Porn and Pistil Whip, in easy-to-use roller ball form. These are perfect for your on the go touch ups, traveling or the perfect set if you’re looking to test the scents out and see how they wear on your skin! Heretic is known for their ability to layer fragrances so having this set makes that super easy to do as well. We just hosted a Girls Night Out: Founder’s Edition event and Douglas Little of Heretic came to the event to share his incredible knowledge on all things scent and fragrance. He went over the art of layering fragrances and I learned so much, I can’t wait to have him back for another event. Thank you to everyone who attended, by the way! It was such a fun night and I loved to see all of your faces. In the set ,my favorite has to be Florgasm… I personally am such a fan of jasmine and it has to be one of my favorite notes that I look for in fragrances and this has a strong jasmine scent paired with gorgeous orange blossom that just smells so fresh for summer. They’re all absolutely beautiful scents, you can’t go wrong! Also makes the perfect gift! 

This unique treatment is like a superpowered exfoliant that completely resurfaces your complexion, giving you bright, baby soft skin. It’s a really stimulating and activating treatment that contains a ton of warming spices, clays and salts and feels like Christmas in a bottle. The powder-to-mousse formula encourages blood flow and brings oxygen to the skin so you see really instantaneous, brightening results as it works to restore skin cells. Its gentle exfoliation buffs away dead skin cells, refines pores, decongests skin and over time helps to resurface hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. This has been a hero product for me over the years because it leaves you with a luminous glow. I use this on the face, neck and even back as we are moving into warmer weather and showing more skin. It’s one of my all time favorites go tos for a glow up!

This new arrival has been a total hit with the girls at Citrine since we got them in and now, I’m on board and can’t stop using it! I love these for going into summer because it’s the perfect lightweight, super simple swipe of color that will not crease or smudge at all. They come in 10 gorgeous neutral shades and they’re a dream to travel with! Super simple to use and very versatile. My favorite is the rose shade, it’s this really pretty rose quartz shimmer and adds that perfect pop to the lid and brings out my eyes. Such a gorgeous shade going into summer!

This complexion stick doubles as both concealer or foundation, depending on how you want to use it. You can even use it to contour and highlight. The beautiful, silky coverage allows you to achieve the most natural skin-like finish while still masking any imperfections. It’s a very buildable medium to full coverage that almost dries down to a powder-like finish that still looks so natural. It leans toward the matte side, but effortlessly blends right into the skin. There’s no need to set it! It’s the perfect complexion stick moving into summer for the ease of use, lightweight texture and versatility when it comes to application. 

The Fitglow Lip Color Serums are actually one of our absolute best selling makeup products in the store and for good reason. They are so incredible on the lips, unlike any other gloss or serum that you can get your hands on. They’re so enriching, nourishing and hydrating, giving you this super juicy and plump, glossed look but without being sticky at all. Plus, you’re reaping all of the benefits of the amazing ingredients. This new shade is exciting because it’s their all time best selling shade, Buff, now with a soft pearl glow. I absolutely love this to put on by itself to transform lips to a perfect kissable pout or to use on top of my favorite lip combo to elevate the look. Everyone I’ve been sharing this with has immediately fallen in love with it!
