Summer 2016 Favorites 

Summer 2016 Favorites 

*sigh* Labor Day just passed and that means summer is unofficially over. Summer sixteen has been lit tho. I've been to tons of functions: brunches, concerts, festivals, random nights on the town with my girls.

Even though the days are getting shorter and slightly cooler, I can reminisce over over my favorite summer products, right? Okay. I feel just a bit better.

Here are the five products that got me through the summer.

 

BECCA Backlight Priming Filter

I got this is my June's Play! By Sephora box. And I'm renaming this product the BackLIT Becca Priming filter. There are several ways to us this product, but I love mixing it with my concealer and using it as a lip primer as well. It helps cover my undereye circles and adds a subtle glow to the area. Also, I've been using it as a lip primer under my really dry Colourpop lippies and BLESS UP. It keeps them easier to apply, keep them in place, adds that subtle glow. I'll definitely be rebuying this when the sample runs out.

Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Definitely one of my holy grail products this keeps my winged eyeliner on lock. This summer it's kept me through Beyonce's concert, outdoor festivals, day parties and brunches.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

I'm not sure what has taken me so long to get this product but I'm glad I finally I got into it. Instant classic. Forever favorite. Automatic repurchase. My lashes are lit, lit, lit! Better than Benefit's They're Real (which I still love). Its gives theeee most intense volume, length, definition and goes on luxuriously clump free.

SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex Body Lotion

I am definitely a super fan of the Shea Moisture superfruit line. Seriously, roll up on my at any given time and I smell like this. I rub this all over after the shower for a long lasting moisture. And bonus it blends soooo nicely with one of my June favorites, YSL Black Opium.

Shea Moisture Acne Prone & Trouble Skin African Black Soap

 This is the ancestors coming back to speak to me y'all. My skin was going through it! But shout out to his bar of soap for delivering me. It's not as harsh as raw soap, but it still does wonders. I consistently rebuy this. Seriously. I have three bars in my house right now. And shea moisture just came out with black soap wipes. Bless. Up.

What products have you been loving this summer?
