With the rain pouring down as I write this it’s time for me to accept that summer is long gone. I’ve already pulled out a thicker duvet and i’m back to wearing my staple autumn colours of black and grey, sigh. Moving on, this summer I really got into a lot of products and I thought i’d share the ones that I really enjoyed using.
|Garnier Summerbody Moisturising Lotion – Boots (£5.36), Marc Jacobs Honey* – Fragrance Direct (£43.99), Real Techniques Stippling Brush – Boots (£11.99), Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection – Boots (£23.99), Maybelline ‘Cherry Me’ Babylips – Boots (£2.99), Bourjois Color Boost ‘Orange Punch’ Lip Crayon – Boots (£7.99), Nars ‘Luster’ Blush – ASOS (£21.50)|
The first product is the Garnier Summerbody Lotion, which was one of the two gradual tanners that I used throughout the summer the other being the Palmers Natural Bronze (review here). Both of these products worked so well to give me what looked like a natural tan and just added some colour to my usual pale skin. Next is the Marc Jacobs Honey Eau de Parfum (review here), which has been my go to perfume this summer. The sweet scent is just lovely and I got so many compliments on this. This summer i’ve been loving using my duo fiber brushes especially the Real Techniques Stippling Brush (review here) and the Real Techniques Duo Fiber Face Brush (review here). I’ve just found that these brushes work so well to allow me to achieve a light application that still gives a good coverage and especially in summer, where you don’t want layers upon layers of foundation dripping off your face in the heat.
Moving more onto makeup products that i’ve loved this summer starting with the Maybelline ‘Cherry Me’ Babylips (review here), now to me this was an obvious choice as I have been carrying this with me everywhere I go. I just love that gives my lips a nice sheer wash of colour whilst also hydrating my lips and I think this will be one that I will be wearing well into the colder months. Next is the Bourjois Color Boost ‘ Orange Punch’ Lip Crayon (review here), another obvious product for me here. Even though I raved a lot about the shade ‘Red Sunrise’ this one has actually turned out to be a contender in the favourites. I’m not normally one for orange lips, but this just warms up my complexion instantly. Last but not least is my every so trusty Nars ‘Luster’ Blush (review here), I couldn’t not mention this. It’s literally the best bronzey blusher I own and has really helped with giving my face a nice warm glow especially when I had fake tanned during the summer months.
