My summer face + perfume



CLOCKWISE | Stella McCartney fragrance / MAC Blot powder / NARS Sheer glow - Barcelona / MAC Trace gold blush / Sleek brow kit - Light / Revon Lip butter - Creme brule / Bobbi brown corrector - Peach / Avon super shock mascara / Maybelline gel liner / Carmex

Hey dolls,
I feel like I have done some summer-related videos recently but not too many blog posts on what products I have been using, so I thought I would share what I have been wearing and reaching for this summer for my daily face!

I have been wearing NARS sheer glow pretty much all summer, along with the NARS tinted moisturiser on odd days which I also like. I have recently dug out my MAC blot powder to mattify my face as its a little more lightweight than other powders and I have used the Sleek brow kit for a very long time now, its a staple! Bobbi brown corrector is my holy-grail concealer/corrector, feel like it can do both jobs. I have also recently been using the Maybelline gel liner which is good but not as good as the MAC and Bobbi brown ones, thats what i've thought so far!
Avon supershock mascara I got free in a Marie-Claire magazine, bargain! Its pretty good for volumising but I wouldn't purchase it once this one has run out. I have been using MAC Trace gold as my blush/bronzer and a few different lip products this summer but the Revlon lip butter in Creme Brule is a nice light and easy to wear product.

Im not sure why I also photographed my Stella perfume but I wanted to mention that its one of my new favourite perfumes! All summer I have been wearing this and also the Summer rose version, heavenly!

I hope this has been of interest, I love seeing other posts about what people are wearing on their face as weird as that sounds!

What have you been wearing this summer/what has been your favourite perfume?

I am ashamed to say this but my favourite summer perfume at the moment is Justin Bieber's! I'm not keen on him but his perfume smells amazing and has a summer vibe about it, especially with the flower on the bottle!

I've been wearing a lot of Pink Plaid by MAC on my lips this summer! I've felt it to be much more flattering in the summer than my usual Ruby Woo red!
My fragrance has definitely been Reb'l Fleur! I love both Rebelle and Reb'l Fleur but I feel RF is much more lighter!

i've still not tried the lip butter for some reason even though i've been meaning to since they came out. i do the the just bitten balm stain though, i've been wearing it in rendezvous over summer, its this bright orangey red colour, its lovely. perfume wise, i still love the marc jacobs daisy and hugo boss orange; older ones but still lovely for summer!

Love your pics :) Everyone raves about the nars sheer glow foundation. I'm so gutted I can't wear it because the yellowish undertones really clash with my pink-toned skin :((( I've been wearing satin taupe with liner on the eyes, chanel vitalumière aqua as a base and chanel horizon blush on my cheeks :) I did the most worn things (summer 2012 edition) on my blog. Would love for you to check it out :) hugs xxx

Chloe said...

I've got the Super Shock Max mascara as well, love it. It really helps add volume to the lashes :) xo

I've wanted to try the NARS Sheer Glow foundation for a while but I can't justify the £30 price tag haha!

My favourite scent this summer is definitely pure DKNY...it is so delicate and summery :)

Hola Bambi said...

thats basically the same as mine :)

I did a similar post to this a few weeks ago and also included the creme brulee lip colour - such a nice and easy lip to wear! I'm not a massive fan of the MAC blot powder though, think you can get better drugstore brand ones x

I still need to try the Revlon lip butters. They look really lush.

My summer perfume has been Escada - moon sparkle! It's gorgeous! Xx

Lara said...

The sleek brow kit is an absolute godsend, I really need to repurchase it soon! I also really want to try a gel liner, might have to look at the MAC one!

The lipstick looks gorgeous, might have to pick it up after pay day! I've been loving Maybelleine's Sweet Pink lipstick and ELF's mineral blush in Coral has been my go-to blush.
I haven't really been using perfumes but instead use my range of coconut stuff from the body shop as the scent seems to stay forever!!

My summer staples are; Benefit's tinted moisturizer (sample), Revlon's Lip Butter in Tutti Fruiti, an old Elizabeth Arden eyeliner and an Une palette for my brows.

Love your staples. The NARS Sheer glow sounds great, but I don't want to fork out money just yet.

I had a dream you bought me nars sheer glow... it's weird. I know.

Nothing will ever beat marc jacobs daisy! I have been wearing chloe rose edition which is lovely, but still not as good as daisy.

I really should get on trying a Revlon lip butter.. I seem to be the only person in the world who has yet to buy one. I've been using Revlon's Fire & Ice lipstick almost every day this month, though. It's red. And I really like the lightness of the Britney Spears Curious perfume.

Really love your blog Sammi! I've been wanting to buy Nars Sheer Glow for a while now but it's near impossible to get samples anywhere to try it first! Would you say it would be suitable for slightly dry skin? x

Eleanor said...

Jac said...

I've been loving going barefaced with just concealer or a BB cream, esp the Garnier oil free version. All time favourite perfume is Chloe - too bad it's so bloody expensive!
