My Top 10 Summer Favorites

Hello Beauties! This is my 1st ever favorites post, whoo hoo! I'm someone who finds something I really like & stick with it FOREVER. I really need to stop doing that, so I can venture out but that's just me. Therefore my posts would be the same every month so maybe I'll try doing these by seasons & here are the top ten products that I used a lot this summer. Some of which I used every time I wore makeup. I only took one photo (I know how lazy of me) but I didn't want this post to be too pic heavy.

The Products (in no particular order) 

1. MAC's Marine Life Beauty Powder - This came out last summer with "To the Beach" collection, I guess you could say this is the equivalence to this years My Paradise Cheek Powder (that I still haven't used). The gold over spray on this one has been rubbed off but I love using the orange side for blush. I reached for this almost daily.

2. MAC's Refined Golden Bronzer - No words can describe how much I love this, it gives me the perfect glow without looking to harsh and over done. I have literally used this every day. I feel bad for all my other bronzers because they no longer are getting any love.

3. NARS Blush in Taj Majal - I've been wanting this for a while now & Sephora does not carry it & when it comes down to me having to place an order I will take forever. Luckily I came across this in SAKS and has been in love ever since.

4. MAC Surf Baby Eye Shadow in Surf's USA - I did many looks using this e/s. I love the color, the pigmentation, the texture, everything!

5. MAC All That Glitter's Eye Shadow - I just happen to pick this up & use for an inner corner highlight & instantly fell in love! I also used this quite often as an all over lid color.

6. Wet-n-Wild Dream Weaver Collection Eye Shadow Trio in Bright Idea - I really liked using the yellow in this trio. It's really pigmented & easier to work with than the matte yellow eye shadows I own.

7. Sephora Lip Creme in Really Red - Words cannot describes my obsession with this product! It is crazy pigmented, it does not budge once applied, and it lasts for hours without fading.

8. MAC's Surf Baby Lipstick in Hibiscus - I wore this coral/red lipstick many days to class this summer only with mascara.

9. Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Siren - The bright orange lip stick seen in many of my posts. This is one of my favorite lipsticks, especially for the summer. I love paring this with NYX lip pencil in orange.

10. Essence Extra Long Lasting Pen Eyeliner in Black - I really like using this eyeliner because it's easy and quick, it also is very long lasting it doesn't run or melt off in the heat.

As I was typing this post I realized I left out a lot more products, but I could honestly say that these were my top 10. I'm sure I could do a top 20 but that would be entirely too long.
