I cannot tell you how ready I am for a summer when the weather is perfect, pedicures are a must and maxi dresses are in constant rotation. Until then I’ll bask in some new makeup favorites that are a must for summer!
One of the newest and hottest tinted moisturizers on the scene is Nars ‘Pure Radiant’ Tinted Moisturizer. I can’t say enough good things about this product. This light-weight moisturizer gives you more than enough coverage and for a tinted moisturizer it blends beautifully and applies effortlessly. It also acts as a great oil-free primer and diminishes fine lines, wrinkles and other imperfections. Trust me. You want this tinted moisturizer in your bag for summer!
I love Josie Maran’s Argan products and her new Argan Color Stick is no exception. I’m all about multi-task products so I’m a new fan. This dual-purpose lip and cheek color provides a beautiful flush color to lips and cheeks for a long lasting dewy finish. With two colors, Dusty Rose and Neutral Pink, it will compliment any skin tone.
The fragrance alone of this product gets me in the mood for the beach. Bobbi Brown’s Beach Shimmering Fragrance Oil smells good enough to send you on a dreamy trip to the waters of Anguilla. This light beach scent is perfect for everyday wear.
When the warm weather rolls around you need something that will stay put throughout the day. Makeup Forever has perfected some of the best stay put cosmetics, and their new Aqua Shadow delivers. Available in many colors this smudge-proof, long-lasting eye shadow pencil enhances and intensifies the eyes, while giving you a all day coverage. This is a new fave of James Vincent and one to look out for at ‘The Makeup Show’.
Is there ever such a thing as perfect skin? Either way, Stila will certainly try to help you achieve it. The new Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm may just be the Holy Grail of balms. This luxurious priming, all-in-one beauty balm visibly improves the look and feel of skin and creates an ultra smooth canvas for your makeup. I think I have a new love!
I’m one that’s guilty of having a million and one lip products at the bottom of my bag. Just like putting together an outfit, I have different ideas about what lip product to wear, so it’s only fitting that I have so many. However, It Cosmetics will help alleviate the clutter with their new product, Vitality Lip Flush. This Flush 4-in-1 Natural Anti-Aging Lipstick Stains takes the place of four products; your lipstick, anti-aging conditioning lip balm, ultra-hydrating lip gloss and your lip stain all in one! I was unsure how it could be a stain because the product was clear, but to my surprise 10 minutes later, my lips had a rich, flushed berry stain. Not only did my lips look good, but it smelled heavenly, and my lips were ultra moisturized. This is definitely new favorite!
