Summer Beauty













Macy's has a full line of Clinique products & many of them are available in gift / value sets - like this for the city or this for the beach. I personally am not as much of a gift set buyer - I have a few specific items that I love & work for me that I go for...  one thing in particular is THIS primer! I kind of tap it into the skin around my nose and cheeks that have larger pores and it makes a difference in the size! I am currently tying this pore refining mask, too! As for the Chubby Stick lip color - it really is wonderful for summer because its very hydrating and not strongly pigmented.  I would mainly recommend it for days that you are wearing less makeup or if you don't like super pigmented lip colors. BUT if you do like matte lip colors that are very pigmented I've been using THIS under my matte lipstick for years! It's got a lotion like texture but it just softens your lips so they don't get the cracked look that happens with matte lip colors. 

Also (most importantly), if you aren't using an SPF under your makeup or in general you really should start using one - I really like the SPF 30 by Clinique (the SPF 50 is here.) I am not big on going out into the sun and I especially don't like the sun being on my face at all but after doing accutane, I got melasma on my upper lip and if I forget SPF and my face even gets a little bit of sun - it only gets darker! (errrr, so frustrating!) Anyway, I only like a few SPFs for under makeup and I think this on is great!

Hope you all have a fun weekend!! Any exciting plans?!
