My Beauty Favorites — Week of April 18-24, 2016

It has been warm in Kansas City for the last few days.  This makes me think that summer is around the corner!

So, this week I have been loving products that are perfect for the warm weather ahead.  From a sunny cream strobing palette, a natural sunscreen and bright nail polish, check out these fab products:

PÜR Cosmetics Sun-Kissed Glow Strobe Palette

PÜR Cosmetics Sun-Kissed Glow Strobe Palette ($34 USD) — Strobing brings a new dimension to facial contouring for instant luminescence. Highlight and define with three coordinating shades to create a custom, lit-from-within look for any skin tone. The silky cream glides onto skin for buildable, streak-free coverage and transforms quickly to a powdery, transfer-resistant finish. Infused with our proprietary, age-defying Ceretin Complex, a glowing, youthful-looking complexion has never been so easy.

What I think: This is a gorgeous cream palette.  It gives a soft, glowy color.  The colors in these palettes are warm and perfect for the spring and summer months ahead.  They blend so well and stay on all day!  Also available in Moonlight Glow Strobe Palette, which includes softer highlighting shades.

Lavanila The Healthy Sunscreen Sport Luxe SPF 30 ($22 USD) — Our 100% Natural, Sport Luxe SPF 30 was created for an active life in motion. A new generation of mineral sunscreen is infused with SmartSport™ Technology for high performance, ultra sheer protection that resists wear off from water and sweat. Packed with skin saving antioxidants, this formula delivers superior, water resistant SPF 30 to face & body while nourishing and replenishing the skin.

What I think: Natural sunscreens are amazing!  Sometimes sunscreens can have harsh chemicals in them, so it’s nice to protect the skin with good for you ingredients.  It is water resistant and is great in hot weather (it won’t sweat off)!

The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel 2016 Voyager Color Collection ($9.99 USD for a color and top coat pack) — Take a jaunt! Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel journey will keep your manicure looking great for up to 14 days. The revolutionary gel manicure system with no light needed is the ideal travel companion, boasting six new fashion-forward hues in its Voyager collection. Each shade is accompanied by our Miracle Gel 2X Volume top coat in a duo pack. This plumping top coat must be used together with our Miracle Gel™ shades for up to 14 days of color and shine. This spring shade palette includes:

Headed Nude-Where: A beachy neutral that calls to mind endless sandy strolls.

Flushed Wanderer: Go where the wind takes you, wayfarer, with this muted blush tone.

Tawny Travels: This burnished brick red can’t be tied down.

In My Suitcase: This grayed-off beige shade packs a powerful punch and coordinates well with all of your vacation ensembles.

Take The Plunge: Wander the waters of unchartered territory in this deep blue, reminiscent of the Pacific Ocean.

Carry On Blue: This aqua hue will transport you to tropical ocean views.

What I think: This collection has something for almost everyone.  Soft shades and brighter fun shade (for the toenails, maybe?)  I’ve been wearing softer shades on my fingernails lately, so I love Headed Nude-Where and In My Suitcase.  And, they last at least 4 to 5 days with the included top coat.

Purchase at mass market retailers near you.
