My Top 5 Must Haves:
So after a week of summer previews (I wanted to do more but things came up in life, sorry), I've chosen to pick my top 5 must haves.

1. L'oreal Colour Riche Caresse Lipcolour

Ok I love these, it is no lie. I love them so much, oh it is just becoming wrong.

I love everything about them and I think they are worth swatting when you see them in a store...I'm sure you'll fall in love too.

If I could have just one of them....Violet Chiffon. It is the perfect purple for me and that is not something I went around searching for or even thought I needed, it just looks great. I get complements on it and people are shocked a purple can look that good. Definitely worth checking out.

2. L'oreal Youth Code BB 
Now I don't own this yet, but I did get to play with it at an event. It has amazing properties to it that do amazing things for your skin and is a more moisturizing BB, which is what I am looking for. As soon as I see this I am picking it up.

3. The Body Shop Lily Cole Collection Shimmer Cubes (24)
I love these four shades. They are so summer and cute it isn't even funny. I really love the shades and think they would look great on so many people. Limited edition means you should get them fast.

4. Joe Fresh Shine Lipsticks
I picked these up in Flamingo and Raspberry, while a bit thinker and a bit less sheer than the L'oreal sheer lipsticks, these babies do deliver the pop of colour I crave. They come in various colours and are only $6.

5. Sun Protection
I've really had a hard time thinking of just one more thing that would be my must have for the summer. It had to be a sun screen. In the end our skin is important and protecting it from the rays is the best way stop premature aging, lines, cancer, age spot and other damages.

I cannot say this sun screen or that sun screen because everyones needs are different. Here are some products and brands that are amazing and have full coverage:

Dermalogica: They have a full line of products with SPF  full spectrum coverage already in them (ex. their new Skinperfect prime with SPF30) but they also make sunscreens that can be used alone or mixed with moisturizers, ones for dry skin or oily acne prone skin. Personally I've been eyeing the Solar Defence Booster in SPF 50 and will most likely grab it soon.

CoverFX: Cover Fx has full spectrum sun protection in many of its products, read the labels to find out more, but their Bright Prep skin primer not only gives you a glow it contains SPF 50! I've used it in the past and loved it.

Hope this helps you know what I've been using and up to lately. Enjoy the summer, but keep protected from the sun.
