So Long Summer

Crisp mornings and pumpkin spice lattes can only mean one thing, summer is almost over. Fall is actually my favourite season, but with fall on its way it’s safe to say winter is around the corner. Canadian winters mean, snow, traffic and frigid temperature. Back to the topic on hand with summer more or less over here are the products that I just need to wear one last time.

Chanel Pink Explosion Blush
A pink blush with a pink lip can is the perfect way to look perky and fresh in the summer.
Random fact I can’t say the work perky without giggling.
Pink Explosion the sort of pink that looks bright in the pan but when applied looks very 
I love this blush and I have to admit I wear it all year
  I do wear this all year, however in the summer pared with a sheer pink lip gloss and a generous coat of mascara ... now you got a Tanya look. 

Bourjois Nail Polish in Amande Defile
This very pretty mint is what inspired this whole post. My initial reaction to this nail colour was “it’s so pretty”, “it’s only two dollars” then reality settled in when I released this beautiful mint green was a bit out of season.  I love mint green but between you and I it’s one of those colours that I reach for in the spring and summer. While summer is not “technically over” I plan on wearing this one last time.  

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aventure
My love for Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shines is very well documented. They are the perfect balmy lip color with just right amount of colour  They also have the added benefit of not needing a mirror to apply. Amazing right? Almost finished my tube of Aventure this pretty pink has taken me through two summers. The pinkish color has fine gold glitter running though it which makes the lips look lush and plump.

NARS Eye Shadow Duo in Alhambra
Alhambra has to be one of my all-time favourite NARS duo’s. It contains a shimmery pale pink as well as shimmery gold. Both colors are pigmented and buttery and honestly just a pleasure to wear. While shimmery pale pinks come in handy all year the gold I like to wear exclusively in the summer. While some girls rock a golden tan my summer pale-girl tradition is to wear golden eye shadow. A simple sweep of the gold along the lids and a pop of the pale pink in the tear duct area easy peasy two second look!

So yes I am thrilled for fall but with that being said I hate to see the warm weather leave.
What product's are you going to miss? leave me a comment!
