We had a fairly cool week (mid to high 70′s) in Kansas City, and I have been loving it. It is heating up again (taking my girls to the water park this weekend), so we are trying to stay cool!
So what am I loving this week? A waterproof crème eyeliner, a BB cream for the body, a yummy-scented chocolate facial cleanser (seriously), a sweet and sultry summer fragrance, and a beautiful bronzer palette.
Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Envy – An ultra-smooth, water-proof creamy eye liner that applies with the ease and smooth silky finish of a gel and the precision of a liquid liner. Smudge and transfer-resistant, this long-wearing formula goes on “foolproof” with the Laura Mercier Angled Eye Liner Brush.
What I think: This is a brand new color from the new Sensual Reflections collection and it is here for a limited time only. I like the formula because it’s creamy and glides right on with an eyeliner brush. The color is a dark emerald and I think it will be perfect in the fall as well as now. This liner comes in other great colors such as Cobalt, a bright blue that is perfect for summer.

Osmotics Cellulite Control Body Glow CC Cream ($75 USD) – This triple action formula contains three clinically proven technologies to target dimpled skin, edema and cellulite at its source. Natural actives visibly reduce localized fat deposits promoting firmer contours and a more toned silhouette. Flavonoids and antioxidants enhance collagen and strengthen the extracellular tissue for smoother texture and dimple free skin. This luxurious golden lotion hydrates, nourishes and color corrects with a beautiful soft focus finish that erases imperfections for instant radiance and a natural glow. Bare is beautiful with this multi-tasking body perfector!
What I think: This luxe cream is perfect for perfecting summer skin. It makes my skin look smoother and more toned (perfect while wearing a swimsuit). I am going to use it until I am out to see if my cellulite looks better.

Karin Herzog Finest Chocolate Cleansing ($55 USD) — Remove all traces of cosmetics and impurities with this professional grade, dual action cleanser and makeup remover. Formulated with pure essential oils, the Finest Chocolate Cleansing helps to unclog pores, dissolve impurities and remove waterproof makeup, while conditioning the skin. The cleanser contains luxurious Swiss chocolate for a sweet scent and extra hydration, leaving the complexion supple, soft and radiant.
What I think: This is a gorgeous cleanser! Smells amazing and really cleans my skin. I like to use it at night to remove my makeup because it works really well.

Calvin Klein Eternity Summer ($34.19, and $27.35 with a coupon code on http://www.fragrance.net) — A resonant and flowery scent for women that radiates casual sophistication for any time of day, Eternity Summer perfume by Calvin Klein is a mature yet subtle choice that will turn heads wherever you travel. Introduced by iconic style and fashion leader Calvin Klein in 2008, Eternity Summer is composed of a perfect balance of musk, tangerine pulp, wood, frangipani and pineapple. It’s an attention-drawing fragrance that works just as well for a relaxed evening out with friends as for coffee with a romantic partner.
What I think: This gorgeous scent is a great mix of sweet and sexy and is perfect for hot summer days and nights. I usually go for fresh scents, but I am loving this for summer!

Mally Beauty Believable Bronzer (retails for: $49.50, now: $37.13): The secret is in using these three powders to achieve that glow-from-within look–a tanning powder for all over color, a shimmer to highlight, and a beautiful sun-kissed shade that’s designed to make your cheeks glow. Unlike traditional bronzers, there is no shimmer in Mally Beauty’s bronzer formula. Instead, the bronzer works in tandem with a warm blush and a sheer shimmer. This allows you to apply color and highlights specific areas of your face, as the sun naturally does, instead of all over. Shades are available in Lighter (shown) and Deeper.
What I think: This is a great product and a great deal right now. It includes two gorgeous brushes along with the palette. The colors are soft and build really well and used together, really make the skin glow. I also like to use the bronzer and highlighter on my neck and décolleté.
