I tell you, these summer days are going by way too fast (July is halfway over already! Craziness!) That means we have to make the most of it, even if it means getting some more summer beauty products into our lives.
I’ve had the awesome opportunity to test drive beauty products from Vincent Longo that are perfect for riding out these fleeting days of summer. From A-list stars to girls who love shopping on HSN, this cosmetics line has been a staple in the beauty world since 1995. They have everything a beauty junkie needs – cream concealers and water canvas foundations to gluten free lip and cheek stains – a refreshing alternative to the normal name brands we see in department stores.
Pretty Purple and a Kiss from Cupid
I’ve been on a major gel liner kick lately¸ becoming one of my major summer staples. This Total Beauty 2014 Editor’s pick made me fall in love all over again, a whipped mousse of water-proof color that glides on real smooth. The color itself is soft but makes a statement, with a rich color that’s a beautiful compliment to your shadow. For extra beauty points, it can also double as an eye shadow, the formula easy to blend onto your lids.
If you’re looking for just a kiss of color on your lips or cheeks, then this stain is the way to go. The gluten and paraben free formula delivers water-proof and kiss resistant color. It goes on wetter than a gloss but dries quickly, leaving behind a natural peachy color that’s works for any daytime event. As a cheek color it works even better (as you’ll see in the second look!). Because it’s so easy to go overboard with blush, the stain gives you more control over color.
Glowing skin is always a summer trend and the Dew Drop Radiant Blush gives you just that without the extra product. The demi-matte powder has little dew drops of color that release their tint and texture to provide the delicate touch of color you’re looking for. Misty Blossom is a sheer pretty pink, a little sweep on the cheeks all you need for radiant color.
Formulating with skin conditioning ingredients like Vitamin A,C, and E this creamy lipstick is hydrating without sacrificing rich pigments. One swipe is all you need and easy to blend out with a brush or your fingers. This particular shade gives me the lazy summer vibe I need right now, a sweet blend of brown an pink.
