Man, it’s hot here in Houston! But I’m not complaining, because it’s only going to get hotter! The heat forces me to skip primer, foundation and usually eyeliner. I would rather skip these than deal with them dripping down my face if I’m outside for more than 7 minutes. Anyway, it’s easier for me to wear some color in the heat, so I’ve compiled some color Summer picks that are on my wish list.
Bobbi Brown Surf & Sand Brightening Blush
I saw these at the counter and didn’t have a chance to try them on. They are both beautiful and sparkly.
Bobbi Brown Surf & Sand Eye Palette
I love the colors in this palette….look at that aqua color! There is also another palette with nudes and golds that’s equally pretty. Love the mix of shimmer and metallics.
Chanel Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow 108 Exaltation Pre Fall Collection
This is the perfect pop of color. I would wear it alone on the lid with lots of very black mascara.
Eye Shadow Base 04 Beige
I recently tried this at the Chanel counter. I didn’t buy it because I wanted this gorgeous gray eyeliner more. I sometimes like to wear eye shadow base when I want to go completely naked because my eye lids are oily. This pen gave me a nice matte beige base.
Burberry Lip Glow Balm 02 Pink
This is lipstick that can go up against Houston’s humidity!! Because it’s a balm, it won’t get sticky and heavy. It comes in 3 colors. We don’t have a Burberry counter here, so I’ll have to order this one.
Guerlain Meteorites Blossom Collection for Spring
This came out in the Spring and I have no clue how this one slipped past me. Guerlain has reformulated their Meteorites to make them easier to apply. I don’t collect anything, but I want to start a Meteorite collection 😉
Make Up Forever 12 Flash Color Case in Neutral
I have wanted the 12 Flash Color Case for forever, but I couldn’t justify spending almost $100 on a palette that had only bright, brights. The Neutral collection is a more practical choice for your average makeup lovin’ gal.
Dolce & Gabbana Summer Glow Collection Nail Lacquer in Gaia 176
Wouldn’t this be beautiful in the summer sun? Love it!
What are you picking up this SUMMER?
