Spring into Summer


Hello my CG’s!

Summer is a month and a half away! Although some of these spring days have felt like summer, I definitely needed a few items to help me prepare for the real thing and enjoy spring! I came across a few must have items that I thought I would share with you guys.


First up! Almay Eraser Sticks
Almay came up with this genius idea of a cotton swab with BUILT IN makeup remover. The stick is filled with make remover solution and you bend the tip with the purple stripe gently and it amazingly fills the other end of the swab with solution. It’s a non-greasy, oil-free formula; perfect for removing or fixing smeared mascara on your lower lashes (cause you can look like a 2 day hooker by 5pm with lower lash mascara, that’s why I stopped wearing it) or removing eyeliner or lipstick or any kind of touch up or removal!
Comes in a small clear snap case of 24 swabs. Around $4. It’s splurgie item for sure, but SO awesome and convenient. You should be dying to try them. J


Next; Garnier Moisture Rescue, Refreshing Gel-Cream
I got this at the end of last year and used it a few times but have been using it every morning for the last month. It’s moisturizer/hydrator in a gel form. I don’t always like using my fingers a scooper or dabber (but feel free), so I use a small cosmetic brush to put smalls dots at the usual spots on my face and then rub in! It’s cool on your skin, and a little goes a long way. It’s perfect for under your face lotion (so you can still get the SPF from your moisturizer) for spring and summer! 
About $7. I pretty much love it.


And now… my secret weapon!
Physician’s Formula Bronze Booster powder.
This little bottle with it’s fun sprayer is a blessing. It gives you a fine mist of bronzy color with a little shimmer. I use it on my face, neck, chest and even the tops of my shoulders and sides of my arms when I wear a tank (since my tan has yet to arrive) and then I blend lightly and quickly with a cosmetic powder brush.

It’s a temporary lifesaver, I think it’s bad ass. J
An easy $9 to spend considering it sprays in such a fine mist (dry) that the little bottle holds a lot. I use it like a freak and it’s barely down a ¼.


Added Bonus: 
L’Oreal Magic Lumi
It’s a brightening cream. You use a very very tiny dot, not a drop, but a dot. And you use it to highlight your cheek bones and other areas that you wanna glow. I put it on the top and bottom lines of my blush area and then on my cheek bones. It’s a fancy kinda thing so I don’t use it all the time, but when I do it’s amazing. It’s got a shimmery texture and when you apply it, it looks “glowy”, know what I mean?

Go get it, you’ll see.
I hear it’s a trick of the celebs. Slims your face and brightens, all for $9. J

Enjoy!


Loves & Hugs
