Fake Bake Flawless Self Tan - I wish I could wrap this tan up in a blanket and just cover myself in it every night. Ugh. I adore it. I imagined that my Summer was going to be full of testing out tanners but since I bought Fake Bake first and have fallen in love, I don't want to even spend the money testing out any others! If you can see from the lid that has turned greenish, it's a green-based tanner which allows your tan to be olive-toned instead of orange! It looks so natural and adds just enough to where there is more than a glow of color but less than an intense, deep tan. To read my full review post on it, click here.
NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in 'Sunbeam' - It's been a slow race for this little guy as I haven't exactly been using him as much and as frequently as I had expected prior to these past few weeks. Now that it's warmer and I'm tanner however, I have been reaching for it more often to highlight my cheekbones. It gives just a subtle glow around your eyes that comes across really dewy and fresh. I have a full review post on it and the other shade of this product right over here!
Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in 'Luna' - Definitely the standout shade in this collection! As much as I like these Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquers, I cannot express how fond I am of this color. I'm a bit tired of owning so many lip products that I have two of the same lipstick colors (different brands) that also match three lip glosses and two balms. This 'Luna' shade is so unique so it's a refreshing invite whenever I open my lip product drawer to choose one to wear. It's not quite a creamsicle but it's less than a coral.. I'm trying and wanting to say that it's just a peachy-orange! It's so unique and such a great color for these warm times. Fuller review can be found here.
Victoria's Secret PINK Spring Break Body Mist in 'Passionfruit Hibiscus' - I must start out by saying that this product can no longer be found in stores as it went out in the latest Semi-Annual sale but should still be able to be searchable online! I have this body mist as well as a body wash/scrub in this scent and it's just the epitome of Summer. It has a sandy, beachy scent that's wrapped up in a warm floral note that brings me to a tropical paradise every time that I put it on. As much as I don't like the beach, I do like to smell it!
Cargo Water Resistant Blush in 'Ibiza'* - Can we leave myself a mental note to PLEASE go try out some more Cargo products the next time I'm at Ulta? I got this blush as a sample and am so thankful that I did. I had a Cargo blush pinned on my Pinterest (possibly one of my first pins!) but every time I went to Ulta I would just stray away from the Cargo area mainly because of the price and the lack of hype in the beauty world. Who cares about hype, Bailey?! This stuff is great. The water resistance is truer than ever and this shade is the perfect cool pink for my cheeks. The texture is super satiny and it glides on effortlessly and stays put all day. Such a fan. Must go get more whenever I have the funds!
NYX Blush in 'Taupe' - *angels sing hallelujah* I finally got it!!! I have been wanting this 'blush' for forever! I recently had a post on this up but I would just like to mention how I apply this stuff. I take my usual blending brush for my crease and swirl it into the product a bit. Then I made a stark line right where my contour should be below my cheekbones. Then I take my usual bronzer and a much larger, fluffier brush and blend the line out. It adds a coolness that I really need in my contouring routine to make my whole look a bit more natural!
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in 'Black' - If you are in need of a cheap but great quality eyeliner that will stay put all day then I would highly recommend this product to you. The entire Rimmel Scandal Eyes line is fantastic but this black eyeliner is pure perfection. I would go as far as saying it's better than the cult classic Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner. Honestly. You put it on your lid or waterline and it's not going anywhere until you take it off! Heck, even when you take it off it's still kind of there buuuut I am not. complaining.
I would love to hear about some of your recent favorites! If you made a post of a video, link it to me in the comments! Otherwise, just mention a few. I'd like to build a new shopping list for the coming months.
