Summer Beauty Essentials

Hey y'all.

Well, it's the middle of summer and it is HOT!!!!! lol..... It's been so hot these past few weeks that wearing heavy makeup, or even lightweight foundation, is the absolute LAST thing I want to do.

At this point I have my summer beauty routine down packed:
  1. Hair up in a bun or top knot, 
  2. Clean, fresh scents, and
  3. Good skin!!


Here are some of the products I've been loving:


Summer 2016 Beauty Essentials
  • Vitamin -C sheet masks
  • Laura Geller- tinted under make-up primer in "Champagne"
  • NYX- matte finish setting spray
  • Sephora-blush me creme blush in "Out of Control" (I use this on my cheeks and lips)
  • Urban Decay- naked skin bronzing beauty balm
  • Clear Ice- ultra hold protein styling gel
  • Rosehip Plus- rosehip oil
  • Dove- deep moisture nourishing body wash

What are some of your favorite Summer beauty essentials?

Let me know what you think.

Too Faced Melted Liquified Matte Lipstick

Hey y'all.

I picked up the Too Faced Melted Liquified Matte Lipstick in the color "It's Happening" a while back and I wanted to share a few pics!

Too Faced Melted Liquified Matte Lipstick in "It's Happening"

Sephora describes "It's Happening" as a matte, bright, magenta color.

How does it wear?

  • It goes on smooth. 
  • The applicator makes it easy to get an even application.
  • The color is extremely opaque with one swipe.
  • It lasts all day.
  • It did not leave a dry ring in the center of my lips like other liquid lipsticks.
  • The formula is drying (like all liquid lipsticks), but it's nothing crazy or unbearable.
Overall, I like this Too Faced Liquified Matte formula and I would definitely purchase more colors.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss Review and Swatches

Hey y'all.

I've been loving everything from Anastasia Beverly Hills lately, and their lip glosses are some of my favorites.

I picked up 3 lip gloss colors from Anastasia Beverly Hills over the last few months.

(l to r) Rio, Sepia, Electro

The glosses are great:
  • They are a high-shine formula
  • Non-drying
  • Intensely pigmented
  • Light vanilla scent
  • Fairly thick, but never sticky

Here are the colors I picked up:
  • Rio- Tropical Pink
  • Sepia- Warm reddish brown
  • Electro- Iridescent purple with blue reflect

The flat, sponge-tip applicator allows you to pack on the color evenly with just a single swipe.
