Summer 2016 Favourites Round-up

Hi beauties,

Today I’m presenting my favourite products that became absolute staples in my summer makeup routine. I’ve been trying and testing so many new products all summer that I’ve already renewed my VIB Rouge status…oopsie. I found myself either working or beaching it for most of the summer, so I didn’t necessarily have a full favourites post for each month. I’m (almost) looking forward to cooler weather so I can focus on blogging more this fall. There’s really nothing like getting inspired in a cozy coffee shop while it’s raining outside. Without further ado, here are my summer favourites!


From left to right, clockwise:

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Lash Mascara– you guys know how I love this!! It’s the first mascara of my life I can justify a $33 price tag.

Kat Von D Lolita II– the long wearing, non bleeding or crumbling formula and terracotta colour won my heart.

Nars Lip Gloss in Supervixen– a perfect gloss on top of any and every nude lipstick!

Smashbox Primer Water– this reminds me of Mac Fix + and I love it’s hydrating, non greasy feel.

Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation– this gives a super flawless finish to the skin and I love the no-mess compact.

Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Pera Granita-obsessed with this girly fresh citrus scent.

Chanel Tan de Soleil– a cream bronzer that melts into the skin and looks amazing with liquid foundation.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Split in Prosecco Pop and Amaretto– a perfect neutral blush and golden highlight.

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square– orange toned tomato red done exceptionally right.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Dual Ended Foundation Brush– great for blending out liquid foundation and contouring with cream bronzer.

Sephora Pro All Over Face Brush– the. softest. face. brush. ever.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette– perfectly balanced with warm and cool tones to transition into fall.

Hakuhodo Crease Brush J142- blends the crease like a dream and is SO soft.


There we have it! I realize literally all of these are high end products- sorry about that but the drugstore really didn’t kill it for me this summer. Have you guys tried any of these products? What were your summer faves?
