Summer Makeup Bag

Some season’s I plan what is in my makeup bag. For example around fall I always bring berry toned colours and around Christmas I always like to keep a red lipstick close by. But in the summer my structured ways subside and I’m left with well-loved easy products that work well in the heat.

Clarins Lip Perfector
Is it a lip balm is it a lip gloss?  While this is still shiny its non-sticky lightweight formula feels like a lip balm. So in other worlds it’s the best of both worlds. Not only is this perfect for barely there makeup looks it’s just a great lip product to have on the go.
I’ve talked about this product a few times over the previous months but this has to be one of my favorite lip product formulas ever. Clarins if you are reading please make a plumy tinted one for the fall. Or a cherry tint! If you want to read my detailed review you can click here.

Chanel Happy 
I have been absolutely loving this product! I did a whole review on this which is here. But to sum things up the sheer fuchsia jelly adds the nicest pink tint to the lips. I have bought a few Chanel Glossimer's over the years and this one has to be my favourite out of the bunch. 

Victoria Secret Sparkling Citrus
The story is I was on the hunt for a coconut body spray. While I still wear perfume everyday I like having an easy lightweight spray close buy to freshen up. I found this little gem at Victorias Secret for 75% off! Sparkling Citrus smells like coconut and lemon. While it smells super sweet coconut the lemon keeps things very light, fresh and a little more adult. 

Bebe Lip Essence
Another blogged about favourite! 
Random but every time I use this people always comment on the cute packaging. 
This lip balm has a very slight shine to it and feel very light weight on the lips but what I love most about it is that it has some SPF in it. Having burnt my lips in the past this is something I avoid at all costs. 

Burts Bee's Rose Water & Glycerin Toner 
I love the scent of this toner but most of all I love how fresh this makes my skin feel.
I got a little sneaky with this one and put this in a travel spray bottle. I like having this close by it helps freshen up dull skin it also helps cool you down if your hot. 

Dior Addict Lip Stick in Dior Kiss
I think I can say this might be one of my all time favourite pink lipsticks. It's the perfect pink for my pale skin and the formula is like butter! This colour goes with just about any makeup look and doesn't require a mirror to put on... win win! 


  1. Neeeeed those lip products!! (and maaaan, you're selling me on that body spray!) I'm the same way; in the summer all I want is a product that's quick, easy and long wearing!

    1. The body spray was such a good deal too!
      Its just so darn hot!!! I
      don't have the patience for high maintenance in the heat!

  2. The Bebe lip essence has the cutest packaging ever! Need it in my life (Im a sucker for pretty packaging) x

    1. AHAHA I know I got suckered in by the packaging but in all honesty it's a great lip product to have.
      Thanks for commenting.

  3. Lovely picks, as always! I've heard nothing but good things about the Clarins Lip Perfectors and you keep tempting me with that Chanel gloss :)


    1. Sorry for the added temptation!!
