I never really need an excuse to purchase makeup-colors and textures are always oh-so pretty!- but summer brings a great reason to try out new shades and products. I compiled a mix of new and old products I think would work great for summer.
Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Eyeshadow Palette
The colors featured in these palettes sure do captivate the essence of the ocean. Personally, I would try out the Surf Palette as the colors are unique and season appropriate. Sand Palette can be used every day and year round as they are beautiful neutral shades.
Tarte Golden Days and Sultry Nights Amazonian Clay Collector’s Shadow Palette
Smaller (and cheaper!) than Bobbi Brown’s Surf and Sand Eyeshadow Palette, this set is a simple mix of gold and bronze eyeshadows with a pop of color in between. You also get two matte shades that are perfect for blending out colors.
Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil
Absolutely L-O-V-E these pencils. Highly saturated with color, these will last you a while- on your lips as well as in the tube. They contain antioxidant resveratrol and come in neutral, bold and deep shades. Fun, bold shades to try: Zinfandel and Corvina.
Maybelline Color Sensation Vivids
At about half the price of Bite’s High Pigment Pencils, one swipe provides ‘notice me’ color. There are no neutral shades in this collection so be prepared for bold look!
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil
Long-lasting eyeliners with an impressive array of colors, you’ll find just about any shade you desire. These glides on creamy and albeit unattractively named, Chaos, Freak and Mildew are fun colors that can speak for themselves.
Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Push Up Liner
If you’re more inclined toward liquid liner than pencil, this may be one to try out. It’s waterproof and claims to facilitate application thanks to a custom angled tip. Anything that can make a cat eye easier is always welcome in my book. Note: For a limited time, Sephora Beauty Insiders may receive a free mini sample with any $25 online purchase!
Nars Matte Multiple
Gotta love a 2-in-1 lip and cheek product that ranges from bronze to pink/coral. You can take it on the go and the matte finish is great for those who don’t want or need added shine. Can be used wet or dry resulting in a sheer or pigmented look respectively. Looking for a glow? You can try Nars The Multiple.
Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara
Currently using and loving this mascara. I received this in the Sephora Beauty Insiders Birthday gift a few weeks ago and it’s amazing. Separates and defines lashes with ease and the best part is it does not irritate my eyes. It’s not waterproof but it does last.
What summer products are you looking forward to exploring?
