Summer Beauty Tips

Posted on
As soon as the warm season is over,I show you  almost the entire contents of my beauty cosmetics for this season. I use also other creams, more colorful colors for nails and lips, wear a lighter scent, and take care of my damaged hair from the sun…

MANHATTAN M&Buffalo nailpolish : Robin Boot, Sun Sneaker

Manhattan cosmetics made another collaboration with Buffalo shoe brand.  There are almost 20 new nail polishes with sophisticated names. But they are seen in internet, bottles have only the short numbers.
Robin Boot – necessarily a summer color! Covers with a layer without becoming  even streaky.
Sun Sneaker – pure happy summer shade. It has a cream finish and opaque with 2 coats. Looks bright and very cheerful.
I must also say that the brush is relatively wide. In general: good quality for the cheep nail polishes.

ORLY Nail Polish Mini Bottle: Green with Envy, Basket Case

Those mini bottles are very cute. But for example this rich teal color is almost transparent. You have to put at least 3 layers to rich the jade creme gloss on your nails.
As for the bright pink creme, the quality is better. At besides, it’s very durable and chip resistant.
In general: Small bottles are good to carry where you go and have a big variety of dazzling colors.

MAXFACTOR Bronzing Powder: 02 Bronze

Frankly speaking I don’t buy these kind of things like “bronzers”.  Just because there is no need – my skin is tanned enough. This time I’ve got it as a present. Using a wide brush I apply it above the cheekbones. Hard to say that the dramatic effect was achieved – only a slight golden glow. In general: for the tan-fanciers who like to emphasize the face features.

BOURJOIS Paris Blusher: 54 Rose Frisson

This blusher comes from the vintage editions. It is a baked blush with a rose scented powder inside. Absolutely does not feel chalky. Besides, the aroma is fantastic. The shade does not look frosty and matches all skin tones. The baked texture is easy to apply with the small brush. In general: These little round pot blushes are my favorite. Strongly recommend – natural glow is guaranteed.

MANHATTAN Soft Matt Lipcream: 54L, 35S

Many times I’ve mentioned these soft mat lip-creams. At the moment I have the whole collection. They are stunning and fantastically long-lasting. The colors are very intensive and give the velvet effect to your lips. I never felt it drying my lips at all.  Despite eating , drinking  and kissing it stays on my lips for good 3-4 hours after which it tends to fade away decently without getting patchy or flaky at all. Besides, it smells a bit of vanilla. In general: My favorite lipcream ever. Recommend!

CRESTOL Professional Color Gloss: 13 Natural Brown

The full name of the gloss is: Semi-Permanent Intensive Color Conditioning Mask with Jojoba & Avocado.
My hairdresser told me to try this Crestol conditioning mask. It gives a slight brown-chocolate gloss. As I have my natural brown color (without dying them) this treatment is good enough once in a while to make them more shiny.  I like this product very much, as it really brightens the color and also makes the hair soft and silky. I apply it once in 2-3 weeks.  In general:  Lightly coloring conditioner that enhances the shade of the hair while treating it all the same.

LUMENE Pure Radiance Day Cream SPF15: Vitamin C+

I was searching for the cream that could give my face a natural radiance and still protect against the harmful effects of the sun. It has an UVA protection that is optimal for everyone. The ingredients also include an arctic cloudberry seed oil. This cream is thick and luxurious enough with a pleasant faint scent. To my mind it could suit all types of skin. In general: Perfect for summer sunny days. Makes the skin look brighter and fresher.

AVON Skin So Soft: Satin Glow Airbrush Spray

“Specially formulated with a touch of self-tanner which gradually builds an ever summer glow. “ – Disagree.
One more gift to try. I applied this spray and waited for a slight shimmer/shiny glow. It made almost no difference. Even that the smell is nice , I’m not sure I can spent a money for this airbrush spray. In general: I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
