Hellllllooooo everybody! Excuse my extra cheeriness but my school year just wrapped up yesterday and needless to say I am pretty excited about the summer. I love the sunshine, pool time, tanned skin, vacations, and sleeping in!! What can I say? I worked very very hard for 10 months to get the next 2 off! Wahoo!
Anyways...I am a YouTube addict. Like truly addicted. I have way too many beauty guru subscriptions and have to get my daily fix. When I went on vacation it literally took me 4 hours to get caught up on all of my videos I had missed. But anyways....one new trend I have been seeing in the past week is the Rainbow Tag. The beauty gurus go through the colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) throw in two extras (pink and multi-colored) and explain their current favorite products based on the color of the product or the packaging. They have been so much fun to watch that I wanted to join in the fun too. Because I am not brave enough to have a YouTube channel (maybe one day) I decided to blog about it and then I would tag a couple bloggers (or really anyone who wants to do it!). Without further adieu here is my rainbow of favorites!
RED: Dot by Marc Jacobs made my favorites for the month of April and my love for the scent is still going strong. It has become my go to perfume in the mornings. Besides Angel, it is one of the only scents that lasts all day too, which is a huge bonus in my opinion.
ORANGE: Even though it is super bright and is not an every day color...I love Pink Pop which is in the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids collection. It gives a really pretty blue toned pink coverage to your lips. I think it is perfect for spring and summer. I cannot wait to take it to Vegas because it will def be making appearances on my vaca!
YELLOW: This product has changed my hair care routine. It is the five minute repair for blondes by It's a 10! Although my blonde is fake blonde--I still use it. It is actually a purple colored hair treatment that smells delightful and seriously tackles my knots like no other. I use it every other time I wash my hair which would end up being every 4th day. I love it. My only complaint is the bottle is so small that I go through it QUICKLY!
GREEN: I feel like I am copying off most of the videos I have watched with the Cover Girl Clump Crusher here...but it is seriously a game changer in the mascara world. It is now my holy grail mascara. I love the shape of the wand and the fact that it does what it says it will do. Clumps be gone! If I am going out or to something special I will combine it with Benefit's They're Real but day to day...just the CC for me!
BLUE: I am quite pumped for this product if I must say so myself. I am very guilty of not applying sunscreen to my face after the first application. I hate having sticky/greasy products on my face once I am already out there, but I can never see if I have rubbed it in if I am alone. Well when I went to Florida I was introduced to Instant Mineral SPF 30 powder by Peter Thomas Roth. It has the head of a make up brush and you just simply brush on the sunscreen powder. There is a little tint to it but it is not bad. And just like that...I am not greasy...I am not sticky and I am protected from the sun. You can get it at Sephora in SPF 30 and 45.
INDIGO: I cannot live without Yes to Blueberries age fighting cleansing towelettes. I have tried countless brands and I do not like anything as much as this lil gem. They are fresh (smelling) and leave my face feeling refreshed. I use them morning and night. I love that they are made with fruits and veggies so you can get the benefits of the anti-oxidants. Not to mention the wipes are a pretty good at moisturizing. I still add my moisturizing routine but they do not dry my skin out!
VIOLET: I chose one of my Maybelline Baby Lips for the violet because of the packaging. The "flavor" is actually peach kiss. I am a fan of Baby Lips period. I have five of them in total. They are easy to have on the go and give a little hint of color for when you do not feel like wearing lipstick, stain, or gloss. Two thumbs up from me!
PINK: This is a NEW favorite of mine. I am loving loving loving Too Faced's Sweethearts perfect flush blush in Candy Glow. First of all the packaging is to die for...the shape of a heart! Love it! But inside you find three shades of the pink family and when mixed together they create a pretty, light in coverage shimmery baby pink. I think it is my perfect shade over a tanned face. It adds a little sparkle and a hint of color...which makes it look like your faced is flushed and it was effortless to achieve the look. I am a huge fan of it!
Last but not least is the multi-colored cateogry. I struggled the most with this one...so I sort of cheated. I have been using Essie nail polishes for all of my manicures lately so here are all of the colors that I am in love with for spring and summer. They look like their own little rainbow huh? Pictured are (from left to right) no more film, bikini so teeny, bond with whomever, madison ave-hue, cute as a button, first timer, and in the cab-ana.
Well that is my Rainbow post. If you made it to the end...thank you. What products are you loving!? I also TAG you to try this post. :) I am specifically tagging Lindsay, Ricci, and Allie!
