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.

Smashbox’s Eye Shadow Trios in Twilight and Panorama ($28 at www.smashbox.com) are perfect. Twilight consists of shimmering white, silver and black; Panorama has pearl, purple taupe, and eggplant shades. Whether you want dramatic or subtle, you’re set.

I am obsessed with Smashbox’s eye trios! I  was just sent some color samples of the Smashbox eyeshadow trios and I have been using them daily I think my other eyeshadows are getting jealous! My favorite has to be Microfilm I’m actually excited to get up each day and try a new look. The coordinated shades make experimenting a breeze I started this week using the matte brown as my base color with a green accent and am now using the gold and metallic green together with a hint of the brown. Every combo I try looks great and really opens my eyes. On top of truly vibrant colors the colors stay true all day!

Smashbox also helps you grab this look with its Waterproof Shadow Liner Duo in Smolder and Slate ($25). The cream shadow glides on smoothly and evenly, giving you the power to create soft, smoky definition in one quick step. The waterproof, crease-proof formula is the modern way to emphasize your eyes!

Yeah for Smashbox! I have always loved their gel liner and have found another eyeliner to covet with Smashbox Waterproof  Shadow Liner Duo.  When the sample showed up on my door I jumped at the chance to try it.  The cream is so smooth and glides on so easy it makes application a snap the color duo is all you need for a sexy smoky eye. If you have days that seem to never end this is the eyeliner for you! This stuff does not move, your eyes will look as great at bedtime as they did when you left the house in the morning.

Instant Definition Eye Shadow Palettes from Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy ($7.95 at drugstores nationwide) also let you to play up your eyes. Whether it’s the Storm Eye Palette, Ocean Eye Palette, or the Mountain Eye Palette, you can get that smoky eye in no time.

Quick tip from Carmindy: Simply apply the highlight shade under the brow and on the inner corners of the eyes. Sweep on the smoldering lid shade across the lid from the lash line to the crease and smudge a bit under the lower lash line. Finish off by applying the contour shade across the crease.

I have been really impressed with the new Sally Hansen Natural Beauty inspired by Carmindy. I have found some drugstore lines either irritate my skin or having no staying power. All of the Sally Hansen by Carmindy items I have had the luck of sampling have stood out from the rest. With great colors that stay vibrant all day and absolutely no eye irritation. The Sally Hansen eye trios are an affordable eyeshadow product that makes great looking eyes affordable at every price point.

If you haven’t tried Carmindy’s line for Sally Hansen get off the computer and run to the store! I have loved her makeup tips since I started watching What Not To Wear she is the perfect person to headline a new beauty line. My favorite thing about this line is how great it feels on. I was sent a few samples of the line to wear and fell in love such amasing products and a very affordable price which helps in this tough economy. I am wearing 4 of the 5 pieces from the kit right now and I can tell you they feel great on and I love how my face looks polished and pretty but not over done, I just can’t say enough about how much I love this line. Thank you Carmindy and Sally Hansen!
