I knew I said I wouldn't be posting as much, but I find myself needing a break every now and again, and what better than to put together a blog post? I already did a feature on my summer skincare products, so I thought I'd do a roundup of the colored cosmetics that I'm enjoying this summer (I was inspired by Danielle). I surprised myself by reaching for a lot of baby pinks and neutrals, in addition to my usual oranges and reds. I've also been reaching for cream textures.
|Erm. Spot a theme? Or two?|
Eyes: (L-R) Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Sandglow, Tarte Gold, theBalm Nude'Tude** Stand-offish
Cheeks: Guerlain Sunny Pink Sun Shimmer*, Dior Capri Diorblush Cheek Creme, Marcelle Enchantment, Illamasqua Libido
It's been cream blushes all the way, baby! I sometimes layer a similar powder shade over cream to increase lasting power, or if I feel like the extra fuss is warranted. I already professed my love for Dior Capri, and I've fallen back in love with the coral Guerlain Sunny Pink, as well. Marcelle Enchantment is a lipstick, but I find that it works beautifully as a cream blush. Illamasqua Libido is a nice orange, and I often layer MAC Honey Jasmine over it for a little more dimension.
Lips: (L-R) Dior Lucky Addict Extreme**, Dior Red Serum Rouge de Serum, MAC Rising Sun Cremesheen gloss, Dior Bed of Roses gloss
Ah, lip products. Happiness for a bandit. Dior Lucky is still in rotation despite its blatant pink-ness, and Bed of Roses is a slightly warmer, glossy counterpart. Red Serum (why yes, I like Dior lip products) is the perfect juicy red for summer, and MAC Rising Sun is a brightening, sheer orange on my lips.
My favorites this summer have been pretty different than my picks in past summers, though I can't remember them, and this is the first time I've actually done a round-up post. I've been really into cream products lately, though, and it doesn't seem like this cream craze will end any time soon. Funnily enough, I'm not that excited about fall right now, even though it's my favorite season. I'm having a great time running around in sandals, shorts, and clean, simple makeup.
What have been your go-to products this summer? Anything I need to check out?
