Best New Beauty Products (June 2020)

Here’s a look at the top 25 products reviewed in the month of June, plus a summary of how many products and brands were reviewed and a break out of ratings! 🙂

I think it’d be fun to go through what we used, purchased, resisted, and so forth each month, here are some questions:

  1. Did anything new get added to your wish list?
  2. What release tempted you the most?
  3. Did you make any new purchases?
  4. Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own?

The Clionadh shadows are the only things that have tempted me in a really long time. I preordered Kiln and Trefoil from the Jeweled Multichromes and Embroidery from the Hybrid Multichromes.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? The Dolce and Gabbana bronzer or Gucci Sheer Mildred Rosewood Lipstick

What release tempted you the most? Nothing. There are things I want but I can hold off!

Did you make any new purchases? I bought a Dolce and Gabbana blush and Tom Ford Bronzer from Mercari. A Clarins Bronzer and Estee Lauder Modern Mercury from Nordstrom

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? No but I haven’t tried that since Natasha Denona released the mini Retro palette

Did anything new get added to your wish list? About a million Clionadh eyeshadows, but especially Oculus. Musee Beauty The Impressionism Palette.

What release tempted you the most? Terra Moons Cosmic Chemeleon pre-order. I decided against it, since I’d gotten Devinah Galaxy Dust Shifters and Butterfly Kaleidoscope bundles fairly recently.

Did you make any new purchases? Not this past week. My Hank & Henry and YesStyle orders arrived, but those were made a few weeks ago.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? About a month ago I bought the Profusion Violets palette because I’d heard it was good, but recently Emily Noel mentioned it as a dupe for the UD Naked Ultraviolet. It does have a similar vibe with its peaches and purples. It doesn’t have anything like the two special shades, but I think I can dupe with indie shadows I own.

💄Did anything new get added to your wish list? Natasha Denona Bronze eyeshadow palette. I am one of the rare people who never purchased the Soft Glam…..this is the Glam 2.0 for me. Star palette maaaaaaybe. Also Buxom bronzer.

💄What release tempted you the most? ND Bronze.

💄Did you make any new purchases? Went ham on Sephora sale. Lots of things on the wishlist (and a few staples) for sale. Also the Ulta Liter sale….year’s worth of Bed Head shampoo and conditioner in the basement.😊

💄Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own
I just put my inventory in the website. Nothing dupes each other. Thats a win!

Did anything new get added to your wish list?
Not really, there were quite a few products that I liked, but none that totally would work for me.

What release tempted you the most?
The Natasha Denona Bronze palette – but ultimately there were too many shades that I wouldn’t use.

Did you make any new purchases?
Not really – just an eyebrow pencil.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own?
Yes, I was able to dupe the shades of the Bronze palette that I liked with shades that I already own – those of the Pixi Beauty Reflex Light palette and my City Colour singles of Cleo and Sandstorm.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Natasha Denona Bronze Palette and a slew of Clionadh multichromes.

What release tempted you the most? ND Bronze palette.

Did you make any new purchases? A few Clionadh shadows!

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I have dupes for most of the Bronze palette… but I still want it, lol. I love ND’s palettes.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Clionadh
What release tempted you the most? ND Bronze
Did you make any new purchases? MJ LE Pewter Please and Olive You Eyeliners. Clionadh Kiln, Oculus and Crown Glass.
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? no

Did anything new get added to your wish list? I add lots of products to the wish list every month. I can’t recall what I added except for a lot from Clionadh.

What release tempted you the most? MAC whatever it’s called, with the Cote d’Amour lipstick in it.
I’m also super tempted by a lot from Clionadh.

Did you make any new purchases? Two eye shadows and two lipsticks from the above mentioned release, Cote d’Amour, Set to Sizzle and I’ve just forgot the eye shadow names, LOL

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? There were some lipsticks I loved and had very close dups for.
