Quick Chanel Haul!

As I was out shopping in Dillard's today, I passed by the Chanel counter and decided to make a stop. I wasn't even going to look at the cosmetics, but realized my want for the famous Vitalumière Aqua foundation. The lady at the counter just wanted to try everything on me! After matching my foundation shade, she put the lusion D'ombre Long Wear luminous Eyeshadow in #86 all over my lid and into mu crease, and popped lusion D'ombre Long Wear luminous Eyeshadow in #86 right near my lashes on my upper and lower lash lines! I got so many complements on my makeup as I continued shopping, I couldn't believe it! She was so sweet and I ended up walking away with my First Chanel makeup items! Here are some photos of the products! (I'm in my phone, so quality is low... Sorry!)

Summer Beauty Favorites!

Spring has sprung away, and summer has arrived! Summer is a tough season for beauty and fashion, so I decided I would share my favorite summer beauty products!

Smashbox Photo Ready BB Cream

   This product comes with me everywhere. While it's not your traditional Asian style blemish balm, it is perfect for the summer. I don't use a tinted moisturizer because of my overly oily skin. I find that this gives me a beautiful finish and helps control the oil that attacks my face! I am in the color light, and although it is slightly yellow for my skin, it blends beautifully. Because I burn as soon as sun light touches my skin, the SPF 35 is a life saver! 

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm

     I have been using the Jack Black Lip Balm for over three years now, and I can't imagine summer without it! This balm is ultra moisturizing and super conditioning. I first started using it when I was on the medication Acutane. The prescription dried out my lips and mouth to the point where they would bleed. This was the only product that would heal them! It has SPF 25, so you wont forget about protecting your lips! It comes in many different scents and flavors. (My two favorite are the lemon and mint.) It has a thick, Vaseline texture, so a little goes a long way!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Pop

   If you like pink lips, but don't like sticky feeling of a traditional lip gloss, this is the lip product for you! This gloss gives you a perfect color to your lips. It's not too overpowering, but adds just the right amount of shine and color. The formula is super smooth, and the packaging has a very high quality look and feel! I just love this non-shimmery, glossy shade!

The gloss can be purchased at your local drugstore. Around $7

These are just a few of my favorite beauty items for summer. If you want to see more of my favs, or want a more in depth review, just let me know!
