Must Haves for Summer

1:12 PM

Here is a lsit of my favorite products for the summer, and I don't necessarily go by trends.  And I am sure I will change the list at some point.

One of my current favorite nail polishes is Sephora by OPI's BYO Boy.
One of my other favorites is Essie's Cute as a button, which is a gorgeous true coral.
I have two shades of lipstick that I am currently in love with.  One is NARS Roman Holiday and the other is Lancome L'Absolu Rouge in Daisy Rose.  Both lipsticks also have great formulas and staying power.  I have never used a lipstick as smooth and as moisturizing as L'Absolu Rouge.  NARS Lipstick is also smooth and does not dry out the lips.  I don't know about any other eczema sufferers, but it is difficult to find a lipstick that isn't too drying or irritating.  I know people with normal skin value a moistrurizing lip color, but for anyone with eczema, it is that much more important.  Roman Holiday also is available in the Velvet Matte Pencils, which is not as good as the lipstick. It does not stay on long, but it is not drying. Two more shades that I like are by NARS and Sephora.
NARS Velvet Gloss Pencil in New Lover is my favorite shade of pink.  The Velvet Gloss pencils last a lot longer than the Velvet Matte Pencils.  I just wish they would make it in a lipstick.  When sharpening the lip pencils, a lot of product is wasted.  But overall, it is a good product and comes in stunning shades. My personal fave is just New Lover.
Sephora Collection Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in Strawberry Delish is a bright pink that lasts a long time, is not drying and is cheaper than the NARS pencils, but doesn't have the variety of lovely colors.
C.O Bigelow Lemon Blueberry lip balm: easy to use,smells nice and the taste reminds me of Fruty Pebbles.
The best bronzer for fair skin is found in the Sephora Collection Sculpting Disk.  Anyone with fair skin knows how much of a pain finding a good bronzer can be.  This also comes with a pink highlighter and a mattifying powder.  Plus, the disk is huge and will last a really long time.

Sephora's Super Supreme Body Butter. The name says it all. The container is huge so it will last awhile, plus it is very moisturizing.

Urban Decay Afterglow Cheek Tint in Crush. This adds subtle color and gives the face a nice glow.  Crush is a bright pink with a little gold shimmer.  It doesn't apply as bright as it looks, and it is very buildable and easy to blend.

A good coral lipstick is also very pretty for summer.  I like Maybelline Color Sensational Pearl Lipstick in Coral Gleam.  This one is good for anyone that doesn't want a coral that is very bright and intense.

A good moisturizer with an SPF is very important.  My mom and I like Perricone MD's More Than Moisture with an SPF 30.  It keeps skin soft, but doesn't make it oily.  A little goes a long way, so the seemingly small bottle will last a long time.
I'm hoping to try Essie's new collection, Braziliant, once it hits stores. I normally do not like such bright colors, but the polish from this collection looks very pretty.  I'm sure that will quickly become a summer favorite.
