Summer Beauty Buys

I’ve said it before, and it remains forever true: I am always on the hunt for the next magical beauty product.  My friends and family know that I am the girl to ask about good products, and I am proud that they come to me when they want someone to do their makeup or just help them maneuver through a Sephora without feeling overwhelmed.  I have a fair mix of drugstore and high-end mainstays in my regular rotation, but I love testing new products as well.  I’ve been experimenting a lot this summer because honestly, my skin has been so gross lately that I need to up my game. (I’ll be doing a summer skincare post soon!)  I need good, lasting coverage in the heat that won’t look heavy; the unicorn of makeup products.  Here are some of my summer musts, old and new:


1. Nars Lipstick in Heat Wave ($27)

2. MAC Lipstick in Tropic Tonic ($16)

3. Nars Lipstick in Schiap ($27)

4. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture SPF15 in 13 Le Orange ($36)

5. Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara ($7)

5. (sorry, mislabeled!) Pixi Flawless Beauty Primer No. 1 – EvenSkin ($23)

6. Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation in Honey ($28)

7. Rimmel London Radiance BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup in Medium ($7)

Feel free to recommend your favorite makeup!  Hope everyone is having a beauty-full summer 🙂

XX, Gabrielle
