It’s summertime. Let’s get the sunscreen out and hit the beach! Also, let’s make a trip to our nearest ULTA and/or Sephora for some new cosmetics. I don’t know about you, but as the seasons change, so does the makeup in my drawer. Now that it is summer, I am ready to go out and do some shopping for new makeup and change my look around. Because I live in a city where it gets extremely humid in the summer, I have to make sure that the makeup I choose is lightweight. No cakey, full-coverage makeup for this girl. So here are some products that I have had my eye on since around the beginning of the month:
1) NARS ORGASM ILLUMINATING LOOSE POWDER – I am really excited about this powder! I already loved the NARS orgasm blush, but now even more happy to see that my favorite blush now comes in a loose powder form. An illuminating powder will give you a fresh, dewy appearance that is perfect for a summer night. But with this powder, you will get a peachy-pink golden shimmer. And what is really great is that it is within a reasonable price range. Could you ask for more? Sephora – $28.00.
2.) FENTY BEAUTY LIL MATCH STIX DUO MINI SHIMMER SKINSTICK SET – This is a limited edition set of two mini match shimmer sticks in the colors Starstruck and Sinamon. With these little beauties you can highlight, bronze and enhance on the go. These colors are getting together in a smaller form while having the same amount in pigment. Like their full sized cousin, this skinstick set will give you a cream-to-powder formula that’s weightless and blendable. Sephora – $22.00.
3) MORPHE CONTINUOUS SETTING MIST – Don’t you hate it when you spend what seems like hours on your makeup, only to have it start fading after a couple of hours? Well, here’s Morphe to the rescue. Known for their awesome beauty brushes, Morphe has stepped their game up and has developed a marvelous setting spray. Yahoo! No more makeup fading after being out for only two hours. The the air-powered micro setting mist will not allow your makeup to cake or fade. Once your are finished putting on your makeup, spray your face with the Morphe Setting Mist and forget about your eyeshadow fading into the night. ULTA – $15.00
4) BAREMINERALS LASHTOPIA MEGA VOLUME MINERAL-BASED MASCARA – Everyone raise your hands if you want a mascara which delivers ten times lash volume, lifts and separates for fanned out fullness, and is formulated with nourishing minerals. Ooooh me! I am so tired of the mascaras out there which promise length and fullness, but at the same time makes your lashes stiff and brittle. When I tried this mascara I was impressed. It lived up to its promise. Not I am not going to sit here and tell you my lashes were the equivalent of falsies. Only falsies can appear like falsies (or at least in my humble opinion). But the Lashtopia Mega Volume mascara was impressive enough to share with you. ULTA – $19.00.
So there you go. Here is my 2018 Summertime Makeup Wishlist. Okay, so it is not in its entirety. If it were, you would be sitting at your computer reading a list of at least 100 items. But these products were impressive, and I wanted to share them with you. Let me know what’s on your summertime list.
