We’re dead smack in the middle of summer and I know I’ve definitely been switching out products and streamlining my beauty looks in an effort to look cute but not melt in the process! Liquid eyeshadows and multi-purpose pencils (like these from Jillian Dempsey’s line) are awesome to use in the summer time. When natural, sun-kissed looks reign supreme this season, bronzers and mascaras are no exception! I got a chance to review Sunset Glow Bronzer and Anew Lash Transforming Mascara + Serum from Avon and here’s the rundown!
I haven’t used bronzer in quite awhile because for me, this one I used worked well sans foundation. Now that my tinted moisturizer is my best friend this summer, I wanted to introduce bronzer back into the mix. This three in one bronzer palette (available in Sunset Glow and Sunset Bronze) is arranged in a super cute palette and I like the choice of different colors. You can use all three colors for an all over sun-kissed look, or use each individual color to highlight and contour. I preferred the second method, using the light and dark browns to contour different parts of my face and the pinkish color to bring color to my cheeks. The powder is light and subtle, giving me just that right hint of color without looking overdone!
Taking the style cues of some of the multi-purpose products, this dual ended mascara has a the serum on end and the mascara (available in black and brown) on the other. The serum is formulated to give you healthier and fuller lashes, requiring application at your lash root every morning and evening. You can follow up with the traditional mascara to finish off your look. I used the serum and few times and the application is super easy. I have been blessed to have great eyelashes so I couldn’t see that much of a difference. I am a fan of the mascara¸ which made my eyes pop with color after the first application. I almost find myself like this one a little more than the Super Extend one! J
Have you ladies tried these makeup goodies out? Love to hear what you think!
