My kids are back in school. but it is still summer! Even though it is cooling down a bit, it is still warm and sunny out (when we’re not getting summer storms!)
I’m squeezing every last minute of summer out with the following gorgeous products. My faves include an eyeshadow palette that will work for summer and fall, everyday self-tanner moisturizer, a sunny fragrance, tropical shampoo and conditioner:
CARGO The Land Down Under Eye Shadow Palette ($34 USD) — This season, Cargo Cosmetics is taking you on a vacation to Sydney, Australia through The Land Down Under Eye Shadow Palette. Inspired by the sand, water, and foliage of Sydney, Australia, this 12 shadow palette is accompanied by a dual-ended brush eye pencil and features warm, matte neutrals, shimmery bronzes, rose golds and cool toned shades in ocean-hued blues and a bright foliage green. Like all Cargo Cosmetics’ palettes, shades are laid out in 3 quads and 6 duos perfectly coordinated for easy to achieve day and night looks.
What I think: These eyeshadows are gorgeous! They are very well pigmented and there is a range of shimmers and mattes, which I love. My favorites include Domain, a stunning green, Bridge, a sparkly bronze and Koala, the perfect matte tan! I will be wearing this for the rest of the year (and into the next).
The palette is available at CargoCosmetics.com, Ulta.com, select Kohl’s Departments Stores and Kohls.com/Beauty.
Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer ($8.99 USD) — Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer is infused with a botanical blend of antioxidants and Vitamin E to help keep skin healthy-looking and nourished. The formula delivers the optimal amount of naturally-looking, glowing color to enrich the appearance of skin over time. The formula, with Erythrulose and DHA provides gradual color development over the course of a week to create a natural-looking summer glow.
Jergens® Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer is part of the newly reformulated Jergens®Natural Glow collection, featuring revolutionary odor-reducing technology, designed so that you don’t experience that smell that typically comes with applying a color enhancing formula. The innovative, exclusive technology effectively neutralizes malodor for the ultimate glow experience.
What I think: This is one of my favorite self tanners. I use it everyday because it’s such a nice moisturizer. Plus, the more I use it, the more I glow! It has a nice scent, too. Great for going into fall when I’m not ready to lose my tan.
