I have been on an informal now beauty buy for quite some time now, due to my abundance of beauty products. Seriously, I may have to purchase the larger size GLAMbox for our move in a couple of months! However, I have been better about not buying a bunch of things I don’t need, staying in my budget and really focusing on the necessities. I have been trying out some different cream products, a new foundation and a life changing lipgloss, so I thought I would give you a quick little run down of all of my new summer beauty favorites! Let’s get started!
Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation
I have talked some about my struggle with acne that has gone on for years. I have tried so many things to help clear it up, but it never fails. I just can’t completely get rid of it! so you know what they say, if you can’t beat’em, join’em! That’s just what I have done. Although I haven’t cleared my acne, I have learned what products work for covering it well. The newest foundation addition to my collection is this Bobbi Brown Stick Foundation. It provides medium, build able coverage that is great for covering acne! I want to do full review on it and possibly an updated foundation routine, so I won’t go into much detail.
However, I have already purchased my second tube, so it’s definitely here to stay for quite a while!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit
With visions of wedding fairies in my head, bridal makeup has been on my mind quite a bit lately. I always contour my face a bit and decided I would try a cream contour, since I usually stick with powder. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier with this palette. I definitely need to get an appropriate brush to use with the contour shades, just to make things a little smoother. For now, using my fingers and beauty blender are working well. The beauty blender blends it very naturally, sometimes it looks natural-like I didn’t even apply it, lol! In the end, I really love the palette and will definitely be trying other cream contours in the near future, just to test the waters to draw comparison.
Buxom Lipgloss: Erin
Late on the band wagon? Yes, I know! Better late than never, because the buxom glosses are incredible. I’m still asking myself why I didn’t try them sooner! The shade Erin is a perfect lavender pink. It is very sheer, but it layers perfectly over any pink lipstick, especially this one. The cool tingling sensation, that plumps the lips, feels so good especially in the hot summer months. Honestly, I think that this gloss stays longer on my lips than any other gloss I own!
Benefit Dandelion Dew
As with the cream contour, I don’t know that I have ever owned a cream blush! Benefits Dandelion Dew isn’t exactly a cream, it’s somewhere between a cream and a liquid, or a very liquidity cream? Haha, I’m sure it has a technical term, either way, I love it! I have never gotten a more natural flush, than from this product. It applies easily, lasts a long time and look like my cheeks are naturally rosy. I just can’t get enough! The pumps easy to use and the packaging is very durable. I apply it with my fingers and blend it in with an angled blush brush. Perfection.
Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow
Now, I will say right out that I haven’t had these for long, so I can’t truly speak to their true qualities, but I can speak for a few things. The pigmentation of these shadows is out of this world. they are very pigmented and apply easily to the lid. They are also very long lasting and come in the most beautiful range of colors. I like that their packing is study, and chic, which makes them super easy for travel! I will be sure to add more once I have used them for a while!
I feel like it’s necessary for me to share a little call to action, because I am desperately searching for a good cream contour. If you have a favorite cream contour, or one that you have been wanting to try, please leave me a recommendation in the comments or tweet me your faves! I hope you enjoyed getting a little peak into my new summer beauty favorites. I would love to know what products you are loving right now, let me know in a comment!
