Summer Beauty Roundup

Whether we like it or not summer has already been showing signs that it’s finally time for autumn to step in. Besides all the great memories we made in the sun with friends and family, I thought it would be fun to look back on all the products used most during the summer. To get started, these have been the products that I’ve reached out for in this sizzling time of year.

This summer was all about colour for me; I was more daring than usual and a bright lip did not scare me one bit. I was all about the Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipsticks (my review here) and NYX Butter Gloss in Cherry Cheese Cake. I was late in discovering my love for orange lippies and this one definitely ignited a whole new spark. I will really be keeping an eye out for orange tones from now on because of this super pigmented lip gloss.
As for the days where I was in a rush or just wanted to throw on something quick, I’ve used my MAC Lip Liner in Soar not only to line my lips but to fill them in as well.

The Maybelline Lash Sensational came to a surprise. The first time I got it I wasn’t that impressed and felt like I wasted my money, but after using it almost every single day I’ve been loving it. When I want even more from it I mix it with Maybelline’s The Rocket and I swear by this combo. The Rocket lengthens while the Lash Sensational adds lots of volume. Until Maybelline comes out with this combo in one mascara I’ll stick to this routine.

I use to only use the Tarte Smooth Operator in then morning when I applied my makeup and wouldn’t carry it around with me for touch-ups throughout the day because I thought the packaging was too bulky. It ended up being ignored, actually neglected since I didn’t touch it for a year or more, but this summer I rediscovered it all over again. It makes my completion look so smooth and keeps shine off for a good period of time.

This was and is for sure the year of the brows and so I pretty much can list all my eyebrow products here, but I decided to just show off the one that stood out the most. The NYX Eyebrow Gel was my brow buddy throughout the entire summer since it stayed on from morning to night. At times this was tricky to remove even with coconut oil but I really can’t complain about that since it does it’s job so well.

Summer is coming to an end but what are or were the products you found yourself grabbing for the most?
