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.

After 10 years the wait is finally over. These much-anticipated natural lip stains are an extension to the best-selling and award-winning cheek stains.

So say goodbye to reapplying your lip color throughout the day and say hello to a gorgeous pop of color and hydration that lasts.

This proprietary blend effectively increases skin’s water content for a ‘plumped up’ appearance leaving lips defined, smoothed, and hydrated. The result is naturally fuller, healthier lips without any irritation or stinging. Like the cheek stains, each shade of these natural lip stains will leave a natural hint of tint that will last throughout the day. These shades are great to wear alone or pair with your favorite tarte lipgloss. This product is free from gluten, animal testing, formaldehyde donors, oil, talc, MEA/ DEA/ TEA.
