With temps hitting the 90s this week in Boston, I thought it was the perfect time to share some of my favorite summer beauty buys. These are the items I’ve been reaching for since Memorial Day and will continue to use right up until Labor Day (and maybe even longer)! All of my summer beauty faves keep me fresh and feeling put together no matter what the temperature is!
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact in Pink Quartz– My Bobbi Brown Shimmer Compact has been one of my summer favorites, year after year. It adds just the right amount of shimmer and bronze for summer nights on the town. If you are avoiding sun on your face like I do (no thanks to wrinkles!), Bobbi Brown will give you a perfect summer glow, even better than a day of laying out with this compact.
LAQA & Co Fat Lip Pencils in Shambolic and Toots- When I first received LAQA & Co’s lip lube in my Birchbox a few months ago, I instantly fell in love. The Fat Lip pencils are great for summer- they go on quickly and easily, they moisturize your lips and come in a variety of bright colors for that perfect pop. I have a feeling LAQA lip pencils will be something I reach for each season.
Tocca Eau de Parfum, Isabel- I love getting a new scent for the new season and Tocca’s Isabel was my choice for summer. Tocca gained its’ inspiration for this scent from Barcelona. Barcelona’s city meets beach vibe is definitely apparent in Isabel. With tones of orange, rose, sangria and vanilla, I am loving this scent and I know it’s one of MJD’s faves for me too!
John Frieda Beach Blonde Sea Waves Sea Salt Spray– In high school and first few years of college, I swore by this John Frieda sea salt spray for my beach waves. I was completely devastated when John Frieda discontinued it. Despite trying many other sprays that claimed to give the perfect beach wave, nothing lived up to it. I was so excited when I heard John Frieda was bringing their Beach Blonde spray back earlier this spring. My beach hair is now back to it’s full potential!
Now, it’s your turn…What are your favorite summer beauty buys?
