Is this the Strobing Product of the Summer?

Highlighters are the hottest products in makeup these days, which is funny since they've been around forever. Everyone just wants that glow so I can see why but you've seen one highlighter, you've seen them all, right? That's what I thought. Enter MAYBELLINE FaceStudio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter ($9.99 @ ulta.com). It’s available in three shades: Light/Iridescent, Medium/Gold, Dark/Nude Glow, and these really caught me off guard.

I’m used to using a powder highlighter these days so it took me a beat to get used to using these that are creams. But wow, so worth it! I’ve pushed the powders aside and these three have taken center stage! I love the different options when it comes to the colors and These. Stay. Put! I don’t think they are waterproof but they are close enough.

A dab and blend on the tops of my cheeks, a dab and blend in my cupids bow, really anywhere and wow, do these perk up my parts, and probably the only ones you need to get you through summer ... seriously.

Urban Decay Gets Even More Naked

Fragrance has been on the top of my mind and here’s another one to consider! As you know, URBAN DECAY loves naked and all things naked so it doesn’t surprise me that they named this one ‘Go Naked’ It’s a concentrated perfume oil and wow is this one tropical and summery! Maybe something you would wear when naked perhaps?

Notes: Italian bergamot, lavender, citrus, neroli, sea salt, musk. For me, the middle notes really shine through with the really orange blossom really standing out to my nose.

New Brand Debuts At Sephora.com!

How often do you visit the Sephora website? I remember only a few years ago where they did seem to add new brands that often but that seems to have changed, and I’m delighted! You know if Sephora’s carrying it, it must be something.

First, a little about the brand – STELLAR was created by TV personality, Monika Deol. The born-in-Punjab-India-and-raised-in-Canada beauty saw a gap in the makeup industry of products for medium skin tones. In addition to face powder, concealer and blush, her line offers 22 foundation shades and of those, 17 cater to medium skin tones. I’m sure she’s making a lot of people very happy right now!

For this post, I’m focusing on 3 of the Metallic Moon Lipsticks $22 @ sephora.com.
