Beach Lover

By now, I think you all realize I love summer. I am a Leo and we cats love the sun and heat. I also love summer because I have a glow and need less makeup. Because of the importance of sunscreen, most of my glow is created by self-tanner and the right combination of products. And just in time for summer, Nars has created the perfect set to enable all women to look as though they spent the day at the beach.
Nars “Beach Lover” is a 5 piece travel-size gift set that will give you the perfect island glow. Featuring their most iconic beachy colors, this is a must have for anyone that loves the look of spending the day at the beach without really doing it.

Nars Beach Lover $49 ($74 value) is a limited edition and is exclusive to Sephora

This amazing set contains the following products:

Blush Duo in Hungry Heart (golden ivory) and Orgasm (peach pink with golden tones). This duo compliments each other perfectly. The blushes are translucent, natural, and leave skin with a healthy glow.

Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Skorpios (iridescent copper). This pencil is smooth and creamy and can be worn all over the eye. It is also incredibly long-wearing.

Lip Gloss in Laguna (bronze and limited edition). A very pigment dense gloss that doesn’t dry out your lips, stays put, and makes lips look kissable.

Illuminator in Laguna (brown with golden shimmer). A miracle product, this illuminator gives skin a refreshed luminosity. Worn alone or with other makeup, you will look radiant.

Radiant Skin In A Pad

I’m all about glowing skin, but for me it’s a fine line between glow and a greasy shine. I’ve tried so many products that promise radiance and luminosity, but have often been left disappointed. Then I tried Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals Intensive Glow Pads Brightening Treatment. At first I was not a fan. They solution is a little sticky and I didn’t notice any change. But I stuck with it and am so glad I did. These pads are a targeted treatment that brightens and renews your skin, delivering superb luminosity. They bring back your natural radiance and improve skin tone and texture. How, you ask? Powered by Activesoil Complex and infused with potent vitamins and minerals, cell turnover is increased letting the real you shine through. The sixty pads are double-sided. Use the smooth side daily and the textured side when you need a more intense experience. I use them at night in lieu of toner and just apply in a circular motion. Like I said, they are a bit sticky, but once dry (seconds really) you don’t notice it. There is no retinol, so for those of you that find retinoids too intense, this is a great alternative.
