It's the last week of August which means summer is coming to an end soon. I suspect we will still have really good weather in Southern California for the next few months - although I haven't been to the beach nearly enough this year. Right now I'm working my way through Chanel, Tom Ford, Sara Happ, and Eve Snow reviews along with some roundup features. Sometimes I feel as though the days go by so quickly and I find it challenging to accomplish as much I as I would like to. I need some organization and time management inspiration!
Right now I'm obsessed with Smith and Cult in She Said Yeah. It's such a pretty vibrant girly lilac periwinkle colored nail polish - I like it on the toes. For bronzers I'm obsessed with Tom Ford Small Bronzing Powder compacts. I don't know if they are limited-edition or not, but I picked up 2 of the Gold Dust. Armani Maestro Liquid Summer I got last year has still lasted me a long time (with a long way to go, I don't know if I will ever use it up). I like how it blends into the skin naturally. There are three shades now.
For the lips, I'm still obsessed with the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors. I almost always have one or two colors in my purse. For fragrance I'm on a rollerball kick. I ordered this Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Coco mini recently. I'm forever in search of a good vanilla perfume I can wear that isn't too sweet. I'm completely in love with it but my husband is not a fan. He doesn't like vanilla scents on me at all (inserts sad face).
I featured R+Co in my July Favorites and I've been exploring more from the line. I've stocked up on a few mini sample packets from various gift with purchase offers. Most recently I was sent a sample of the Rockaway Salt Spray and it smells so so so amazing. The first few times I used it I sprayed too much too close to my roots. It does dry down even if you use too much but I recommend spritzing at least 6 inches from your hair. It gives a nice textured look and volume without making the hair feel crunchy.
The Supergoop! Sun Defying Sunscreen Oil with Meadowfoam SPF 50 has been on regular rotation for body. It absorbs quickly, doesn't feel greasy, doesn't have that sunscreen smell, keeps sunburns away and doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin. I started testing the cream Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50 with Cellular Response Technology and it also works well without irritation issues. I'll have a sunscreen testing roundup soon.
Last but not least, Truffle has new Clarity Pouch colors! Above shown are Large Seafoam Mint Cranberry and Small Pewter Lime Slate.
