Summer Favorites | Top 10 Essentials


Hey everyone! Today I’m doing a collab post with the lovely Amy from Polishedbyamy! We decided to do a top 10 Summer favourites round up, and we did 5 favourites each, so you can read Amy’s 5 favourites over on her blog that I linked above!

1. Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan “dark”



This is my favourite fake tan ever!! If you live in Ireland, you know that we don’t get much sun, because it’s always raining๐Ÿ˜‚ But, with the Cocoa Brown “original” tan you can keep it on for 1 hour “light” 2 hours “medium” or finally 3 hours for a dark tan. I used to always leave the original one on for 3 hours, but I found the new darker version in penneys a while ago, and I’ve been using it ever since! This is perfect for all us pale girls! (If you would like me to do a review on all the cocoa brown products, let me know!

2. Hollister body spray “crescent bay”


This is my go to scent for the summer! I don’t like to wear it in the winter though, as it’s a bit sweet and fruity! It reminds me of watermelons! The Hollister sprays are a bit expensive, but they are definitely worth it in my opinion!

3. Catrice nail polish “(S)wimbledon”

I only bought this a few days ago, and I love it! I love turquoise polishes, because they suit almost every skin type. This one is a very bright turquoise shade, with some silver shimmer running through it, but the shimmer isn’t that noticeable once you applied it your nails. I’ll be doing a review on this in a few days, and it will include swatches of this polish etc, so keep your eyes peeled!๐Ÿ˜‰

4. Mac prep and prime transplant finishing powder. (Pressed)



 

 Since I have very dry skin, I’ve always had a problem trying to find a powder that doesn’t emphasise my dry patches! My mother actually bought this for me as a birthday present, because she heard it was good for any skin type. I’ve been using it for the past few weeks and it’s amazing!! It blurs imperfections, and suits any skin colour since its transparent, and it’s perfect for very dry to oily skin! Definitely a summer favourite for me!

5. Mac lipstick “creme cup”

Mac lippie colage

This was another early birthday present that I got off my friend! I usually go for more nude/soft pink lipsticks for my everyday look, but I do like to wear a bright lip every now and then!๐Ÿ˜‰ This is a cool toned light pink colour, usually pale pinks make me look like a ghost, but not this one! I think it would be too light on darker skin tones though. It’s a perfect everyday nude lip colour for summer, and winter!

So that’s it for my Summer beauty favourites! Like I said before, make sure you check out Amys favourites that I linked at the start! I hope you liked this post, and have a great day!  ๐Ÿ™‚
