Happy Summer, Everyone!
Now that Memorial Day has passed, temps have skyrocketed, and colleges and schools are starting to end for the semester, I think we can safely say it’s summertime! So, I was thinking that in the place of my May favorites (although these basically kind of are), I thought that I would share all of the things I know that I’m going to be obsessed with this Summer!
I got this in my May Ipsy bag (which is also a favorite… If you want me to do an Ipsy review or unboxing leave a comment!). The color is gorgeous, and it is pretty long lasting. The formula is pretty smooth as well, so it’s easy to apply.
Guys. This mascara though. It is the BOMB! It makes my lashes so full and long, and it holds up all day. However, just a summery word of warning, this particular one is NOT waterproof! I speak from racoon-eyed experience.
The Hoola bronzer is a classic, veering towards Holy Grail status. ‘Nuff said.
Again, this product is edging towards Holy Grail for me. Mostly because almost all of the colors in the palette are SO WEARABLE. Honestly. And the formula is so nice, and it applies so smoothly. It’s blendable. It’s smooth. It smells delicious, like peach. Excuse me while I go swoon over it some more…
This stuff is so great for helping to battle frizz… I use on the ends of hair after blow drying and it works like a charm every time.
This spray adds a nice texture to my hair. It can be a bit tricky, because sometimes if I use too much it can make me frizzier. But once I cut my hair again, this will be put to very good use!
This is another pick from my May Ipsy bag. The duo has glittery copper and chocolate brown shadows that blend beautifully together. They’re what I’m going to reach for when I want to do ssomething simple, but I know will still look good. Paired with that Lash Paradise mascara? Best two minute eye makeup look ever.
I picked this up a little while ago after one of my favorite beauty gurus on Youtube, Jaclyn Hill, was raving about it. I saw it in Kmart a few times before finally caving and picking it up. Why did I wait so long?? This blush is absolutely GORGEOUS. It’s abeautiful vibrant deep pink that is so glittery that it layers so well with highlighters, and could even double as one. (If you’re feeling a deeper color that day. It is pretty pigmented.)
Since I’m going on a bunch of beach trips this summer, I wanted to find a new bathing suit. I looked online and at Target and nothing really tickled my fancy. Then a blogger I follow on Insta posted a picture of this swimsuit, and I knew I had to check it out! I fell in love instantly. Cute, strappy, high-waisted, and ONLY $15 with good reviews??? You best believe I smashed that “Add To Cart” button. Also, if you’re intrested in the cut but not the color, you’re in luck! Last time I checked, there were lots of colors to choose from. I might just be ordering another in a different color, because it”s so flattering.
This is a great podcast to listen to on the plane, I knocked out three episodes during one flight on the way to Cali! Arden and Will are two of my favorite YouTubers. If you don’t know them you should definitely check them both out! They are the absolute cutest, and the definition of relationship goals!
Also, before I sign off, I have a quick and exciting announcement! I finally made an Instagram exclusively for this blog! If you’re not already following, go over to @thegingerintrovertblog in Insta now! I also changed my personal account to @liz_mcilhenney 🙂
