Derpina is finally done another semester of intensive school! I'm so happy I can finally enjoy the rest of my summer and for the first time I don't have anything else preventing me from enjoying the sunshine! It's been getting really hot in Vancouver right now so here are a few products that I've been enjoying lately that are quite summer-y. You might recognize a few of them from my previous hauls! :)
Milani Liquid Eye Liquid-like Eye Liner Pencil in 01 Black: This eyeliner is the bomb. I've been searching high and low for this whenever I visit drugstores but I never found a black one until one lucky day. This eyeliner is pigmented, glides on smoothly with a creamy like consistency but when it dries it will not budge. I've swatched it and tried rubbing it off under water but it barely moved or smudged. I had to use makeup remover to get it off. The only complaint I have about this eyeliner is that it's not really "retractable". You can't retract the product back inside so you need to be very careful about not twisting too much product out.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard: If you have been a long time reader for my blog you know how much I love my Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Peach. I've decided to give this concealer a try based on how many rave reviews I've been hearing about on this and I must say....I'm not disappointed - in fact, I love it. It's creamy, it has good coverage and lasts all day. For once, I'm completely satisfied with a liquid concealer. Has this replaced my love for the Bobbi Brown Corrector? I don't think so, but it is definitely on par and up there equally with it.
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat: I've been meaning to mention this top coat in my previous favourites post but totally forgot about it unfortunately. I really have to thank Lena for introducing this product to me through reading her blog posts. This top coat has literally changed my whole nail polish pampering experience. It just makes everything dry so much faster and it really prevents the nail polish from chipping too quickly. Completely in love with this!
Butter London Nail Lacquer in Jaffa: My first and only Butter London nail polish in my collection so far and I'm obsessed. I bought this on a whim seeing that it was on sale for ~$15 in London Drugs. Jaffa is a bright coral orange which is perfect for summer. I've been wearing it on my toes for a whole month now. The nail polish is opaque but still requires two coats to look perfect. It's not streaky and dries relatively quick.
Sonia Kashuk Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Colour in Sheer Melon: I don't understand why this product is named "sheer" because this lippie is pigmented as heck! Sheer Melon is a very universally flattering coral/strawberry pink shade. It's also moisturizing and has a nice glossy finish (without the sticky-ness). This has been my go-to lip colour for the summer so far.
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso: I've been using this non-stop since I bought it a few months ago. This is such a no-brainer shimmery peachy pink blush. It gives the cheeks a nice healthy glow and natural flush. Luminoso is a universally flattering shade.
Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in Pink: I don't know if this blush boosts my mood but it definitely makes me happy to see a product giving my cheeks a nice pinky flush of colour. I don't usually reach for magenta pink blushes but this made an exception for me.
L-R: Milani Liquid Eye, Sonia Kashuk Sheer Melon, Milani Luminoso, Physician's Formula Pink
