Beach Babe

Summertime is the best time!  As we transition to the new season these are some of the  new beauty products I have been using and loving!


With tanned skin I love a brighter lip! I tend to stick with mauves, but come summer I am ready for some color! I have been loving the Maybelline lipstick in the color Vibrant Mandarin!  It’s such a perfect summer shade!  The orange/pink color compliments a summer tan perfectly!

My next favorite is the Butter Bronzer by Physicians Formula. This bronzer literally smells like summer. It has a tropical/coconut scent!  The skin tone is pretty neutral which I really love about this bronzer.  It’s doesn’t make you look orange… The packaging is also super cute and tropical.

I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the new Wet n Wild Highlighting Powder in the shade Precious Petals. It was so hard for me to get my hands on this baby!  I checked everywhere and it was always sold out.  I finally found it in K-Mart. This highlight is so gorgeous.  It gives your skin such a pretty glow and is super affordable. It’s creamy and pigmented.  I use a fan brush and lightly highlight my cheekbones and brow bones with this highlight.

Along with beauty products, perfume is fun to change up this time of year too.  I am so obsessed with Thymes Kimono Rose.  Its a floral, girly scent that I love!  I’ve been wearing it non stop!

Last but not least I think a cute pair of cat eye sunnies are a must for the summer!  I think this style of sunglasses looks so chic! I bought these from Target!

What’s your summer favorites?!


Don’t mind if I do

Free samples.  Free clutch.  SOLD!

I decided to check out Sephora on Cyber Monday because I was long due for some new beauty supplies! My beauty blender was getting old and I have been looking for a new shampoo.  So I waited until Cyber Monday to see if they had any good deals.

I found a promo code call PARTYPICKS that allows you to pick from 3 different choices of samples and a clutch. I LOVE free beauty samples!  Next to diamonds, they are a girl’s best friend! You never know what new product you might end up loving!

The sample bag I picked was called “Cocktail Hour Classics”  and included:

A black clutch

Marc Jacobs- Mod Noir and Gucci- Bamboo Fragrance

Make Up Forever Lip Gloss

Murad Invisablur Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 30

Bareminerals Mattyfing Prep Gel

Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara

Origins High-potency Night-A-Mins Renewal Cream

I am so excited to try these new samples!  So far, I have tried the Roller Lash mascara, the JackBlack lip therapy, and the Makeup Forever Lip Gloss.

I love the mascara and the lip balm, but I think the Make Up Forever lip gloss is nothing special.  A basic lip gloss that didn’t have much pigment at all.

What kind of deals did you find for Cyber Monday?!
