Discuss: Most-Used Summer Products

While I’m over here lamenting the pending demise of summer, some of you are eagerly anticipating Fall – chunky sweaters, boots, cozy shit, PSLs… Hell, some of you might be drinking PSLs already. I don’t know if its available yet and I don’t want to because I don’t care (so don’t tell me). Autumn is my favorite season but I haven’t yet gotten my fill of summer. The workload at my day job has been a bit more intense (not complaining – it’s just been cutting into time I might otherwise use for the blog.) My past couple weekends have been spent desperately clutching the remnants of summer as it escapes all our grasps.

The question I asked in the LORAC Pocket PRO 2 giveaway post (now ended, thank you for participating) was what everyone’s go-to looks have been. A lot of responses were dewy, glowy, simple – some bronzer, some mascara or an effortless lip. Solid choices!

What I want to know more than the looks, though, are which products you found yourself using the most. Here are my top four:


bioreBiore Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50 PA+++, $9

If you haven’t boarded the Asian sunscreen (at least for your face!) train yet, you’re missing out. My face has been so much happier since I started using this, and my skin is safer too.

maybellineinstantagerewMaybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer, $7

I don’t wear foundation daily, but I have under-eye circles and some redness that I spot-conceal. Even though I detest the packaging, the product inside is so good. Still.

telescopiccarbonL’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black, $6

What I consider, so far, to be the drugstore version of bareMinerals Flawless Definition. This is my holy grail – not just in summer, but year round. Period. Even with nothing else on my face, 9 times out of 10 this will be on my lashes.

Naked2 Basics - SocialUrban Decay Naked2 Basics

Because lazy, that’s why. This palette is so effortless…and wee, therefore easy to tote with you and the shades are so easy and lovely. Win.
