Time is flying way too fast these days! Summer just started and winter clothes are slowly showing in some boutiques. Next thing you know, we will be buying those dark fall shades. Seems that we have to resign ourselves and just adapt to our perpetual changes of seasons. Speaking of changes, my skincare and makeup routine has evolved so much during the last 3 months that content with my makeup is an understatement; I feel youthful (well, as much as a 4-0 old gal can be!). I’m gravitating towards more natural finishes and less towards powdery, cakey face.
deborah lippmann Lara’s Theme & Sonia Kashuk no 3 – no 4
Are there colors that cry out summer more other than coral, orange and pink? Nope! Want to look bronzier than you are? Orange will do the trick. I’ve exclusively opted to rotate between Sonia Kashuk’s no.3 , no.4 and the gorgeous Deborah Lippman in Lara’s Theme .
Formula X The Fix
At first I was not that impress with the Formula X The Fix 5-in-1 nail treatment but now I can’t live without it. This makes my hands look polish, with a rosy hue and my nails feel strong. Ordinary nail polish don’t last on my hands (I guess I’m too ruff as I’m always in the woods) so this is the best comprise that I found that does the job.

YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch
This is a “Where have you been all my life product”. Mix with my concealer, the result is so beautiful. At first, I was using it alone but it was almost too radiant and pale for my under eye area. The only thing I hate is the applicator: I have to press the push button so many times that when the product comes out, it’s way too much. I got mine from the Sephora Favorites “Chic It Easy” set.
Clarins Opalescence Face & Blush Powder
I totally forgot that I had this stunning blush in my collection! Swirling all the colors together, the result is the most beautiful peachy/nude blush ever. I should look into my stash more often, maybe there are more treasures like this one hiding in some hidden places!
Mac Lipglass in Cherry Cherry Blossom
Personally, glosses are my favourite lip products all year long but, during summertime, glosses are a must! Being a gloss lover, my collection comprises a lot of different shades and high-end brands that make it a little bit hard to choose from. This summer, I mostly wear my Buxom Lip Polish but I also love my Mac Lipglass, especially in the color Cherry Blossom which is a beautiful peachy/rosy, ultra shinny shade that goes with all my makeup look.
Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pots in Perky & Rubenesque
I’ve been enjoying creamy products so much this summer that it’s normal that these two made it in my June favorites. My best shade is really obtained by mixing Perky and Rubenesque together. Simple, easy and very glowy!
Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highling (01 Hefty Highlight)
This comes as a surprise since I didn’t rank this highlight very highly when I purchased it a while back. I usually don’t go crazy on highlights but a touch of this Clinique Chubby Stick Hightlight on my cheekbones and my cupid bow as been a total revelation. Blends effortlessly, the shade is not too overly shinny and it’s oil-free! Love is in the air!!
Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer (Mood Light)
I was not expecting to like this primer so much. The problem I usually have with primers is that somehow, they disturb my foundation around my nose and cheeks, and I can see a separation. Am I the only one who experience this phenomenon??? Sadly for my wallet, this Hourglass product works like magic on my skin: prime and correct! What’s not to love!
Note: Unfortunately, I don’t see any additional glow with this product!
