I'm sure most of you would agree if I said that your makeup look isn't complete without a good lipstick! Am I right? I mean, there's just something about a good lipstick color that brings the whole look together! It's pretty much a must-do when applying makeup, kind of like putting on shoes - it's the final step that pulls it all together! So, I'm going to share with you some of my favorite lipsticks for this summer!

As you can see I LOVE me some nudes and coral-y pinks! :) I am also a fan favorite of a more creamy look rather than the mattes during summer time so, most of my picks are more on the creamier/shine-y side!

The Best Bronzer For Fair Skin

So I know the Maybelline Fit Me collection has been out for ages but, I was recently at Ulta looking for a new bronzer and decided to give the Fit Me Matte + Poreless Face Powder in Pure Beige as a bronzer a try! A good shade of bronzer is hard to come by because sometimes they can be on the orange-y side or too pink!

The Product Details

Packaging: I like how it comes in a sturdy compact with a sponge and mirror. I don't use the sponge but you definitely can! You get 0.3 oz.

Color: The color is pretty neutral, not too cool not too orange, so it is perfect to bronze with! 

Application: The powder is easy to blend out using the Real Technique contour brush. It will not leave you streaky! The formula is so buttery smooth.

Finish: It's matte so you don't have to worry about any shimmer but, it somehow leaves a "glowy" effect. You will look like you came back from vacay with little effort!

Wear: It has lasted all day, even on the days I have been outside in the unbearable heat and sweating! 

Price: Find it here for $6.99!

I definitely recommend trying out this out if you have lighter skin and want a bronzer thats affordable and is of great quality!

What's your favorite bronzer? I am always interested in trying out new products!

Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Lips

I noticed these little guys around the internet and decided to pick some up for myself. Everyone was raving about them so I really wanted to try them. I live in a smaller town in Texas and products seem to come to our stores last haha! So, when they came to our local Walgreens they, of course, flew off the shelves. I had my eyes set on Loyalist and Dreamer. I want to try a bold color but can't decide on which one I would wear the most (I don't like to buy bright colors and only wear them once or twice, I like to get my money's worth lol). I was only able to get my hands on loyalist this time so, keep reading to find out if I would go back for more! :)

MY THOUGHTS

Color: Let me start off with how BEAUTIFUL this color is. It is the perfect nude-y pink shade that goes great with pale skin! Like seriously the best nude lip color I own!

Packaging: I am loving the sleek matte look these have. Super clean and clear. I like how the outside shows the color but without seeing the product. And yes, it is true to color!

Application: The wand picks up the perfect amount and the product just glides over the lips without streaks. The wand has a pointy tip perfect to line the lips with. I don't get product on the outside of my lips like I normally do. The formula is just so buttery and sits right onto the lips.

Smell: The smell is not over whelming but it is a sweet cupcake-y smell so, if you're sensitive to smells you may not like this lip product

The Bad: The only downfall this lip product has is that after a few minutes of applying the formula gets tacky on the lips. But, honestly it only lasts about five minutes and you don't have to worry about that feeling for the rest of the day, literally!!

Wear: The name says it all! It is seriously like ink on your lips! This will stay on all day long. I apply this in the morning before work. Eat, drink, wipe my mouth, and by the time I get home I will still have a bit of the product left. Seriously, the best liquid matte lip ever!

Price: You can get them at Walgreens or Ulta for $9.49

I definitely want to try more shades and hope they come out with more! I loved it so much! Have you tried these yet? What are your thoughts? Fave color(s)?
