Nars Luster and Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple

Today, I thought I would share with you guys one of my  two of my favorite go-to make up products for the summer time. The first one that I am going to mentions is by Nars and it is their blush in Luster. Luster is described to be a sheer golden apricot, I would describe it as being a peachy orange with red undertones. It is really pretty on the cheeks and warms up the skin a little making it look like you have a nice glow or have been in the sun a little to long. I recommend this blusher to anyone as I think it would be suitable to most skin tones.  I especially think this blusher would look good on those with blue eyes because the color of the blush would help your eyes stand out more!

You can purchase it at your local Sephora or the Sephora website.

The next product I would like to suggest to all you is the Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple. It is no secret that I love my red lip sticks and Candy Apple is a red lipstick that has a more sheer formulation. It can be easily be built up to a more brighter red and can also be toned down and more sheered out. I think the color and the formulation are especially great for the summer time.  I tend to go for more of a bright lip rather than doing my eyes during the summer because it is so much hotter and I don't want to end up with panda eyes.

The Revlon Lip Butter can be purchased at you local drugstore.

Another (tiny) Haul ..this time with mini reviews: Indeed Labs, Vichy, Benefit

I was recently at the drugstore picking up some necessities and instead of getting my usual go to products I thought I would pick up a few new items to try. The first thing I got is the Indeed Labs pepta-bright. Now that my skin is a little less prone to breaking out I wanted to get something that would fade those pesky dark scars that get left behind. I figured if Caroline Hirons decided to give it her stamp of approval it must be somewhat good. Fingers crossed this work and my skin stay blemish free.

The next thing I got is another skin care product and it is the Vichy Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser (cleansing milk). Now the only reason I got this was because I needed a new cleanser and it was on sale for I believe $12.99 in comparison to $19.99 and because it is a non-foaming cleanser. I did try this out last night and I hate to say I did not like it. The package claims to remove eye makeup and mine barely budged and I don't wear waterproof eye makeup, and I found none of my other face make up moving either. The cleanser also claims to tone and cleanse the skin. Once I was done cleansing, I touched my face and it was soft but it felt as though there was some sort of film left behind from the cleanser. Afterwards, I grabbed my toner and a cotton round and I found there to be quite  a bit of makeup on the cotton round which of course means using this cleanser will probably just leave me with congested skin. Quite unfortunate especially because I massaged the cleanser in quite a bit, I must admit I had high hopes and was sadly disappointed.

The last thing I got was a make up item, and it is the coveted benefit's They're Real mascara. In the last little while, I have heard and seen so much hype about this mascara all over YouTube and the blogosphere. Now, I've never tried a higher end mascara because honestly I have always loved all the on ones I try at the drugstore. But with all the hype my interests were piqued and I thought I would give it a go. I tried it out for the first time today and honestly I didn't really like it, I found it didn't give me much volume and made my lashes feel crispy and look spidery. However, it did lengthen my lashes quite a bit and I do like the shape of the wand. I heard if you use it a bit more it is suppose to get better so I'm hoping next time I use it I will more impressed. I think I'm going to head back to the drugstore and get my favorites: L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black and Covergirl Lash Blast

Up close of the wand:
