With the days reaching mid 80s here this week I can’t help but start to think about summer. Coupled with all the summer makeup releases in the last few weeks, as well as coming out soon, and I’m saying farewell to spring and hello to summer. Here’s some of my top spring and spring to summer items.
Nomaterra Cape Cod Wild Beach Rose fresh – modern rose – light bodied – green – watery – feminine. This a sea scent, but it’s also a rose scent. It’s a great mingle of the two which is perfect for that transition. It has a bit of femininity to it yet also the summer sea. I talked about it here.
MAC Strobe Cream in Redlite A moisturizer that boosts the look of dull skin and luminizes with iridescent particles. This is the perfect hydrating light cream with a bit of bright red pearl to add a spring glow. I love this under foundation fr a glowing and brightening effect. Review here.
Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm A cleansing balm that repairs, renews and illuminates your skin. This is the ultimate light cleansing balm. Smells like cucumber heaven, perfect for spring and summer. Review here.
Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum A super-potent vitamin C day serum packed with a powerful antioxidant complex, essential nutrients, fruit enzymes and a chronopeptide that provides the benefits of Vitamin D, all working together to firm and brighten the appearance of skin, while improving the signs of photoaging. This day serum has been a staple of mine for more than two years. It’s an amazing vitamin C serum. This is to help keep the summer brown spots at bay. Review here.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Bloom A bestselling, cult-favorite lip treatment with SPF 15 that moisturizes, protects, and smooths the lips in clear and sheer or buildable color in a sensual shimmery pink. I’ve been wearing this a ton the last few weeks. It’s hydrating and the perfect sheer shade of shimmery neutral pink. It’s my favorite Fresh balm to date. Review here.
Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops Blossom Ultra-concentrated illuminating and bronzing drops that allow you to customize your ideal glow with a liquid metal or sunkissed finish. A shimmering neutral pink rose fluid highlighter you can use in multiple ways. Perfect for spring, and summer. Review here.
Ouai Wave Spray A weightless texture mist for effortlessly chic, undone hair. Infused with rice protein to add hold and memory for that “just got out of the ocean and my hair dried perfectly” look. What seemed like the worst buy at first for me, turned into one of my favorite hair texturing/wave sprays. Considering I own a dozen hair wave/texture sprays that says a lot. It gives texture, shine, body and waves. It lasts all day and has good hold. Don’t over do it with this one to avoid a sticky mess. I haven’t gotten around to the full review yet, but it’s coming soon.
