Summer is over, and I'll be honest, I couldn't be happier. Summer is probably my least favourite season as I just don't enjoy being hot! It's sweaty and uncomfortable and I much prefer the other seasons. However, there has been a few beauty products that have been my saviours during the sweaty summer months. First up is the MooGoo How Now Brown Cow gradual tan which is hands down the best gradual tan I have ever used! I've spent most of this summer inside so my legs are as pale as ever, this tan is so easy to apply and I never get any streaking, and I can promise I am no tanning pro. When I first tried the Rimmel Wake Me Up mascara I wasn't that impressed, however I've grown to like it and I've found it to be the perfect everyday mascara. When I just need something on my lashes, but don't want them super thick and heavy I go for this, it's a really lightweight consistency and it feels like there is nothing on your eyelashes, it also smells like cucumber which I love!
The Loreal Infallible Mattifying Primer has definitely helped keep my makeup in place when normally it would be sliding off my face in a hot sweaty mess. For those days when I haven't had enough sleep I've been turning to the Rimmel Scandaleyes Liner in Nude to brighten up my eyes. Put this on your waterline for an instant brightening effect, it works, I promise. To add to that brightened look I've been loving the Collection Gorgeous Glow Blush Brick, it's a shimmery golden blush that gives such a gorgeous highlighted effect while also adding a bit of colour. So quick and easy and makes me feel very summery.
On my lips I've been mostly wearing nude lipsticks all Summer, and my favourite has to be the Essence Long Lasting lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty, it's a gorgeous nude muted rose shade and is a really lovely moisturising formula. The whole range of lipsticks are such a great price for the quality so I'd really recommend checking them out. I also love lip balm and always have one on me, this Nivea Lip Balm in Peach has been my top choice in the Summer months, mostly because it smells like peach which I adore, it also gives a light shine and peachy colouring which is nice.
I was recommend the Lush No Drought dry shampoo by Rhianna and I've been very impressed with it. Basically a scented talcum powder type product it soaks up any grease in your hair and doesn't leave any residue and has a lovely lemony smell. Much better than the aerosol options. If you saw my review of the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette then you will already know how much I love it, and it's pretty much all I've been using this Summer, and I know it's going to continue being used throughout Autumn. My final saviour product this Summer has to be the Bourjois Healthy Balance powder, this does such a great job at setting and mattifying without being cakey or heavy. A lifesaver in the hot weather which makes me skin even oilier.
Have you tried any of these products? Make sure to let me know what products you've been loving this Summer, and any products you think are going to be favourites for Autumn. I'm looking forward to dark lipsticks!
