Top 10 Products I Can't Live Without This Summer!

Hey Loves!

We have made it to Friday-Woop Woop! Any exciting plans for this weekend? I am planning on seeing a movie. I haven't been to a theater since Iron Man 2 was released! Yea-it's been THAT long LOL! I am so sorry I have not been posting as often as I should be. I thought that with the summer finally here I would have more free time to write. But truth of the matter is that I have been super busy and frankly, I am running out of things to write! I haven't really been purchasing many beauty products, and my looks of the day have been pretty neutral and nothing too exciting! I promise to give you all a fun look of the day either Saturday or Sunday. So check back and keep a look out for that post. I will give you a hint of what I had in mind...glitter! OK, that's it no more hints LOL!

I want to share with you my top 10 picks for products that I am constantly reaching for this summer. As far as makeup goes, I am all about neutral and shimmer. For nails, I have been obsessed with pretty and the color practically screams summer! Lastly, when it comes to body scents, I love scents that are more soft, clean, and fruity.

1. Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Sun-Damage Daily Moisture Lotion- I am hope that we all know by now how important it is to apply a facial moisturizer that contains SPF which helps protect against UVA and UVB rays. I have been using this moisturizer by Garnier which contains an SPF of 28 and protects against UVA and UVB rays.

2. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in "Mango Motion"- This nail polish by Sally Hansen tops the list when it comes to my favorite corals. This polish applies beautifully and opaquely in just 2 coats. Honestly, you can even get away with just one if you wanted to! Click HERE to see a previous post in where I swatch this beautiful coral goodness. I have this color on my toes right now. Love it!

3. Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara- This is my most favorite drugstore mascara. It lengthens, volumizes, and the brush works wonders in separating my lashes beautifully. Best of all? The affordable price! Click HERE to check out my review on the famous orange tube.

4. Philosophy Pure Grace Perfumed Body Lotion- I am quite fond of this body lotion from Philosophy. I apply it on my arms, and my legs before I go out so my body can linger in a nice fresh, clean, and sweet smell. Pure Grace body lotion contains antioxidants, and Philosophy describes the scent as being a "clean scent of soap and water". And that is exactly what it smells like. Did I mention I love the pimp bottle? So easy to get the product out. Some may not agree with the hefty price tag of $34.00 for a 16 oz. bottle, but this has lasted me a long time. I am not even half-way through the bottle yet and I have had this lotion since March 2010.

5. MAC Get-Away Bronze Blush- Ever since this blush came out with the MAC To The Beach collection last month, I have been reaching for this non-stop. This blush is perfect for giving my cheeks a subtle warmth to them. I have actually even been skipping blush these days. I feel like Get-Away Bronze blush is just enough color for me. This blush is a frost, and it gives me that perfect amount of soft sheen to my cheeks. Just perfect! Click HERE to check out my review and swatch of Get-Away Bronze.

6. Raph Lauren Ralph Eau De Toilette- This scent is perfect for summer. It is fruity, fun, and flirty. I love how versatile this scent is. I wear this scent either in the day time, or for a fun night out on the town.

7. Tarte Smooth Operator Oil Free Foundation- I love how this foundation feels on my skin. It is not heavy, sticky, contains an SPF of 20, does not contain any harsh chemical ingredients, and it gives my face a healthy glow to it. That is great for me because in the summer I am all about a naturally luminous complexion. Click HERE to check out my review on Smooth Operator.

8. MAC Lipstick in Blankety- You all know that I am all for nude lips. I have been reaching for Blankety a lot because I love toned down lips when summer comes, and best of all the amplified formula is not drying on the lips and they help keep my lips soft, and smooth all day long.

9. Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden- I suffer from the most oily lids ever! And they don't get any better when summer time arrives. That is why it is super important that I prime my lids before I apply my eyeshadow. I love Eden because it contains a yellow tint that is perfect for helping to conceal any lid discoloration.

10. Urban Decay Show Pony Shadow Box- I am loving the soft, smooth, and sheen-like neutrals in this palette by Urban Decay. I often apply Toasted on my lid, and smog on the crease. Perfect, simple, and easy to do neutral eye. Check out swatches HERE.
