5 Refreshing Summer Must-Haves!!

Sooo…SURPRISE! It’s summer.

Say hello to sweaty armpits, frizzed-out hair, melting makeup, and red, swollen faces. Yippee!

WELL NO FEAR, beautiful citizens! Isabella is here to the rescue! (And she brought lemonade!)

Anyway, my point is summer can be a little…uncomfortable. Sweaty. Messy. Completely unglamorous at times. And I thought I should share some summer beauty must-haves.

These are things I’ve been using every day so far, and have been loooving! Enjoyyy.

First off, I picked Tom’s Long-Lasting Deodorant in “Fresh Apricot”..because, hey. Let’s be honest. For me, it’s nearly unbearable to walk around all day with B.O.

Plus, the smell is soo fresh…and fruity! It lasts ALL day, just like the label says!

Next is my skin-care savior…Yes-To Tomatoes Skin Clearing Facial Mask. What a mouthful!

On the darkest, most disgusting skin days when pimples, dullness, and blotching become a huge deal, this literally transforms my skin. I’m serious, after washing it off, my skin is smooth and refreshed and glowing. I’ve used up nearly three containers of this stuff! Image

After I use the mask, I need a good toner. The one I picked out to show you is one I’ve had for a while and still haven’t used up!

It’s a cleansing water by Caudalíe. Image

This is the DEFINITION of refreshing.

I just pour some on a cotton pad and use it to gently cleanse away all the icky impurities, dirt, oil, and makeup, and it leaves this delicious tingle.

It kind of smells like melons. Maybe cucumber?

Not sure…but it smells niiiiice. And I’m a sucker for good-smelling things.

Neeexxt uppp is something you guys might find dumb…but I bought it after watching Michelle spritz it on in one of her old videos.

It’s an Evian mineral water facial spray.

It’s just cold-water-mist-stuff in a pretty can.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT, I DON’T REGRET BUYING IT. IT’S FUDGIN’ AWESOME. Image

I actually bought two of the mini-sizes at Sephora for, like, 12 bucks.

On a hot day, this stuff is my best friend. It’s a really nice mist…I loooove to spray it on my arms, legs, face, back of my neck, anywhere to get that instant cold.

And now, finally, a product that isn’t skincare or something.!

Soo recently I’ve been getting into the Essie nail polishes. There’s one I specifically like…and it’s a perfect shade for summer.

It can really make tanned skin pop, and the color is delectable, trendy, and sweet.

“Mint Candy Apple”, people!!!

Who doesn’t love a minty hue to cool you down on a hot summer day?

That’s all I got, folks. I really hope you check some of these products out, anyways, because they are wonderful.

If you don’t mind, I’ll be out lounging in my hammock with an issue of Vogue. ;}

Kisses.

Wal-Mart Haul!

Hey my little curly-fries!

I went to Wal-Mart literally just a half an hour ago, and picked up some stellar products that I wanted to share with you!. :}

It was late, and I was tired, and my mom wanted to leave, so I snatched some products that looked interesting and booked it to the nearest check-out.

So let’s dive in!

First off is two Essie nail lacquers in “Sugar Daddy” and “Mint Candy Apple”. Image

As you can see, the colors are very pastel and candy-like, like the colors on an Easter-egg! They go on really smoothly; Mint Candy Apple dries to a cream finish and Sugar Daddy is a sheer gloss.

These are my first two Essie nail polishes, and I’m SO happy with them! Sugar Daddy is totally my new staple nail-color because it makes your nails look really healthy. Mint Candy Apple is a very fresh spring-summer color, very minty, and very bright. If you’re tan, it will pop against your skin!

Next is a Maybelline Eyestudio Duo in “Persuasive Plum”…something I wasn’t too sure about. Image

Guys, I’m a brown-eyed girl, and purples are my thang, mmkay?! (Tho I haven’t found the perfect shade yet.)

The duo comes with a dark eggplant-purple shade and a lighter shade with spots of champagne, mauve, light brown, dark brown, and lilac. The dark purple was so pigmented and velvety, but the lighter color HARDLY showed. Poo.

AND LAST is a cream foundation, my first, I might add! It’s the Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse, a very hit-and-miss product, in the color “Classic Ivory”.

Image

It’s really emollient, but comes in a sort of funny packaging. If you guys want a review, leave that suggestion in the comments! I’d be more than happy to do one!

Anyway, that’s all for tonight!

As Tigger says: “TTFN! Ta ta for now!”

My Five Favorite Nail Polishes!

ON THIS EARTH, I only have about five real nail polish “favorites”.

I usually let my nails run around naked for the rest of the time, because I’m too lazy to paint them.

When I do paint them, I usually get bored of the color after about a week, but these are nail polishes I really, super-duper love. We’re going from 1 to 5, 5 being my top favorite.

Hehe. Let’s starrrrrt.

#1: 

O.P.I Nail Polish in Strawberry Fields

Image

This color really brings out the golden undertones in my skin, and makes the shimmery, strawberry color pop even more. You only need about one coat, two is fabulous, and by then you have an opaque, juicy, strawberry shimmer that screams summer. It stays on FOREVER too, and looks really smooth on the nail.

#2: 

Essie Nail Polish in Where’s My Chauffeur?

Image

This color is very, very pretty. I love the Essie brand, because they have so much color selection! This color reminded me of cotton candy, or the beach. It was one of those colors that instantly picked up your spirits.

#3: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Trout Pout

butter_london_nail_lacquer_in_trout_pout_shop

This is a very bright, bubbly polish. It looks like a bubblegum pink with a hint of coral, that goes on extremely creamy. It reminds me of something you would wear for a day at the beach, or to the mall with your besties, or SOMEWHERE really fun! It looks very pretty on, and complements a lot of skin tones.

#2: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Fash Pack

Image

This is one of the MOST UNIQUE COLORS I HAVE EVER SEEN. Ever. I know it looks “blah” in the bottle, but on your nails, it can look like a variety of shades.

In different lighting, it can look like a purple-brown, a cool taupe, or a creamy milk-chocolate color, and it’s SUPER glossy. Plus, it goes with basically anything and everything you have to wear!

#1: 

Butter London Nail Polish in Kerfuffle

Image

I know what you’re thinking. “It’s washed-out pink. What makes it so special?”

Well, my friend, this color is very, very beautiful in it’s simplicity. Every girl needs that basic, creamy, ballet pink in their nail polish collection! It’s a true, timeless classic.
