Add a little sparkle to your summer!

I was just sent some samples of some great new products for summer and wanted to share my favorites.

My favorite from the new line is the Naked Beauty high lights cream cheek color. Its a great double duty product giving my cheekbones a little lift and the cream blush smooths on giving my cheeks the perfect flushed pink look.

Be summer-ready with Smashbox’s new Naked Beauty Summer Collection ($20-39)! From shimmering nudes to soft pinks, the collection is packed with nearly-naked shades for eyes, lips and cheeks. This summer, expose your natural beauty and create an ethereal, lit-from-within glow with these Smashbox essentials.

So Rodial Brazilian Tan has been a standout from me recent product reviews. Its one of those products you love so much you are scarping at the bottom of the sample to get every last drop. I just apply before my makeup it has a great tropical coconut scent and absorbs quickly. Then in a few hours my face has a great healthy glow I apply it every morning to my face, neck, chest and arms. It gives you a great healthy glow that makes everything look better and smells delicious!

Can’t make it in for a spray tan? Rodial Skincare allows you to get one from the comfort of your very own home! The Brazilian Tan line ($49) gets you the glow you want as well as nourishes your skin. Choose Brazilian Tan Light or Dark for an instant coat of color. You can also build up to that summer shade with Brazilian Tan Daily, which increases gradually.

A great and truly affordable primer, Sally Hansed Luminizing Face Primer gives you that little extra glow. I even wear it alone when I am in a rush and just need a little help with my skin. You will love how quickly it absorbs and how great your skin looks.

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy’s Luminizing Face Primer ($9.95) will help you to shine and will emphasize your summer tan – faux or real! It smoothes and refines skin texture while hiding pores and fine lines. Micronized pearl creates a healthy glow when worn alone or as a smooth base under makeup. Skin-smoothing cork oak and olive leaf extracts nourish skin and boost radiance while vitamin E provides antioxidant protection.

Rodial Glamoxy Snake Serum

Rodial Skincare’s Glamoxy Snake Serum is now available! This viper-inspired product employs Syn-Ake to instantly plump and smooth skin. The neuropeptiede that mimics the effects of the snake venom makes this all possible. You can achieve Botox-like results without any needles!

Ralph Lauren Summer Romance

If you are a fan of the classic Ralph Lauren Romance your sure to love the new Summer Romance. It takes the classic Romance scent and warms it up for summer with a beautiful bouquet of florals and fruit.  I just tried a sample of this fragrance and I’m really enjoying it. I love the passion fruit scent and the floral and musk notes keep the fragrance from smelling too young. My only issue is the scent seems to fade rather quickly. But overall it has a great tropical vibe that is perfect for summer.

It’s been a long winter, but that’s all the more reason to look forward to the scents of summer. Fall in love with Ralph Lauren Summer Romance, a captivating Fresh Fruity Floral that transports the senses. Fragrant warm breezes fill the air and awaken memories of a quintessential summer romance. Escape to the beach for a romantic sunset walk or picturesque picnic for two every time you wear it. Summer Romance is available now at Macy’s and Macys.com.

About Ralph Lauren Summer Romance:

Summer Romance is the latest in the Romance collection, developed by master perfumer Harry Fremont. The original Romance was first introduced in 1998 in celebration of new love, followed in 2009 by Romance Always Yours, the essence of eternal Romance.

The fragrance takes a tropical twist on the classic Romance scent with blooming flowers, succulent exotic fruits, and an embrace of milky sweet musk.
