With real lipstick making a comeback, we’re putting down our lip glosses and reacquainting ourselves with intense color. We really liked Round Lipstick from NYX Cosmetics. It’s no surprise that it’s their bestseller. It’s a perfect blend that gives moisture but stays in place for the day. It fades nicely as the day goes on, instead of drying out the lips. What we loved the most was the $3.50 price tag. They have a vast selection of colors, so you can build your lip collection in no time.

Eyeshadows may last forever, but it’s important to always have fresh mascara. We really liked L’Oreals new Extra Volume Collagen Mascara. Although it didn’t do much lengthening, we got a lot of volume. This mascara works by plumping the lashes from the inside out with hydra collagen. The brush is designed to get even your smallest lashes as well. What we liked best about this mascara is that we could keep layering without having to worry about clumping.

We’ve found mascara that isn’t so thick that it clumps but doesn’t have so much liquid that it smudges. We liked the Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara creamy formula, because you can layer without clumping. This mascara also has a unique brush so you can actually comb through your lashes. The result is very natural looking; we suggest this product for when you’re going to be outside or for work.

Usually concealers thick enough to cover dark eye circles are creamy and not really appropriate for blemishes. We liked Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer because it hid our dark circles completely, but since it’s oil, talc, and fragrance free, we could use it on other imperfections. Now we don’t need two concealers- we can see why this product won beauty awards from Oprah Magazine and Marie Claire.

We all know by now that sunscreen is a must, but many people are unaware of just how much to apply. You need about a teaspoon for your face, and a shot glass for your body. It’s a lot of rubbing in, but it’s necessary to get the coverage you need. And don’t forget to protect your lips. We like Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipcolor. It has an SPF of 15, and with 56 shades every woman is bound to find her perfect color. It also moisturizes like a lip balm, so you don’t have to worry about the heat parching your lips.
