NYX Buttergloss in Peaches and Cream |$5| Cheap, lovely, and smooth! I will never purchase high end lipglosses ever again, because, well first of all, I hate lipglosses, and this one is the only one that I have liked the wear. It isn't sticky or look goopy on my lips! Love Love Love!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed |$26| Amazing summer blush color. It is not as dark as it looks. It's actually a pink color and goes on incredible! It looks great with a tan and with pale skin. Very versatile shade.
MAC Cremesheen in Peach Blossom |$16| I have been wearing this lipstick everyday since I have gotten it! I dont know why not enough people talk about it, because it is the PERFECT everyday shade. Shy girl move over, there's a new favorite in town! It is peachy enough that it looks natural on tinted lips (like mine). If you have no pigmentation to your lips this will give life to your lips and make the look plump without looking overdone.
Anastasia Brow Pencil in Dark Brown |$23| More expensive than it's other popular friend that isn't in pencil form, I like the pencil form way better. Reason being? It lasts a heck of a lot longer, and doesn't break as easily and in my opinion performs the same longevity and pigmentation wise. The only pain? Sharpening..
Pureology MultiTasking Hair Beautifier |$25| Ever since going lighter with my hair my morrocon oil doesn't give enough moisture to my hair. This stuff claims to have 21 benefits (PRIME:Hair Color Protection, Leave In Conditioner, Hair Detangler Spray, Blow Dry Spray for Quick Drying, Moisturizer for Dry Hair, Low Porosity Hair Care, Weightless Conditioner, Hair Cutting Lotion. PROTECT: Split End Treatment & Prevention, Hair Breakage Treatment from Daily Brushing & Combing, Hair Fiber Product, Repair and Protect Heat Damaged Hair, Shields Hair Against Environmental Damage. PERFECT: Hair Smoothing Treatment, Silky Hair Treatment, Seals Hair Cuticle, Hair Moisturizer Spray for Reduced Dryness, Anti, Frizz Hair Spray, Reduces Hair Static, Hair Refresher Spray for Restyling, Hair Shine Treatment). I can't vouch for it working as a hair fiber product, because I honestly don't know how you measure that but everyone else gets a big fat YES! I love this product and the price tag doesn't even bug me because how much more manageable it has made my hair ever since going blonder!
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Shimma Shimma |$6| This shadow is gorgeous and has been on my lids ever since I got a tan. I can't even describe how much glow it brings to your eyes and don't get me started on how buttery smooth it is! Marlena (Makeup Geek) has done an amazing job on all her shadows but this one blows every shadow on the planet out of the water! I love it so much. It is way better than any shimmery MAC Shadow I have purchased, and I will never go back to Shroom or All That Glitters or that other one I can't even name because I don't give it the light of day since Shimma Shimma!

-Definitely feels like cashmere-
Apr 28, 2014
This has been a long time coming… We’ve all seen it everywhere, used by everyone. It gets raging reviews but when its time to sit down and order, I can never justify the price tag.
During the Sephora VIB Sale, I decided that I really needed to bite the bullet and purchase products that I’ve been wanting for forever and not just buy things that were new.. So I went ahead and purchased the Beauty Blender and the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (oil free). I went back and forth between the regular formula vs. the oil free, but since I was purchasing full size and would use it during the summer, I knew oil free was the way to go.
Before I go on a tangent that you might not want to read, just know that I LOVE this product. It covers well, especially considering how light it feels. After I stipple it on my face with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush, I completely forget that it is there. I don’t like tinted moisturizer because they offer no coverage, which is why Estee Lauder Double Wear Light is my favorite tinted moisturizer-esque product. The LM Tinted Moisturizer gets rid of redness and evens out your skin tone. It won’t cover any blemishes, but that is why we have concealer. I got the color Caramel ,which is a little too dark but it blends effortlessly and doesn’t look like my face is a different shade, which makes me feel that I could use this while I’m darker during the summer months.
The longevity can definitely be improved by the use of a powder. I finish it off with my Bare Minerals Mineral Veil and the result is flawless. I’ve been wearing this day and night (adding on more bronzer and blush during night), and can definitely say that this will be a summer staple.
Don’t let the price tag freak you out, because the tube is HUGE and you do get a lot of product and a little (I use a pea-size amount for my whole face) goes a long way.
So if you are looking for a light-feel, medium coverage product for Spring and Summer and if you are as late as I was, or were on the fence about spending the bucks, I would say take the plunge!
