It’s always this time of year — when spring is turning to summer — that I’m most inspired to revamp my beauty routine. The weather gets warmer, and something about that makes me want to switch over all my beauty products. I always automatically start gravitating towards any product that uses any of these words: bronzy, glowy, dewy, luminizing… You get the idea.
So, I recently picked up a few fun new products (and one everyday staple of mine) from Sephora, and wanted to share what I got. I can’t speak to the quality of the products just yet as I haven’t given them a shot — I just wanted to share the haul to inspire any of your shopping trips you may be taking. Also, if you’ve tried any of these products, let me know how they are or any tips and tricks to go along with them! And if you want me to share my opinions on any of them in particular in an upcoming post after I’ve given them a fair shot, just let me know in the comments. Without further ado, here is my summer beauty haul…
everyday bronzer // shimmery champagne highlighter // highlighting moisturizer (mine’s just a sample size!)
peachy palette // nude gloss // self-tanning serum
dewy skin mist // skincare sampler kit // illuminizing moisturizer
I have to say, I’m probably most excited to try the dewy skin mist. It had been on my wishlist for awhile but I never ended up picking it up, so I’m very excited to finally give it a shot! It’s the perfect time of year to switch over the a dewier finish with face makeup, so I think I bought it at a good time. I’ve never tried anything from this brand, so fingers crossed that I’m a fan!
I’m also very, very excited to try the illuminizing moisturizer — I had a small sample size that I received with an order about a month or so again so I got to try it for a day and seemed to really like it (although it’s hard to tell with just one use). I’m also very, very picky with my skincare products, so we’ll see what I think after a week or so. It basically had a pearlescent finish that it left on my skin, giving that lit-from-within look which is too perfect for the summertime when you want to lighten up on your face makeup.
The everyday staple that I mentioned is the bronzer. I have been using it for years now, and every time I go to try another one it never lives up to this one. The color is perfect, the little bit of gold shimmer (it’s subtle!) gives the most perfect glow, and it’s super easy to work with. A win-win-win in my book! I just can’t get enough.
