My 5 Summer Must Haves

Rene, over at Cottage and Vine is having a linky party! She wants us to share our five "must haves" for a weekend at the beach. And being a girl who loves spending a lot of time at the beach, this one is pretty fun and easy for me. Here are my 5 must haves...

1. Givenchy Mascara. I love this applicator. It sort of grabs your lashes and applies the product from the roots to the ends. It's waterproof and it does a great job of separating and curling your lashes. It doesn't get clumpy or cakey. Totally worth the price!

2. Frederic Fekkai Wave Spray. Don't you love the nice curl/wave that your hair gets after a day on the beach? This product is great because it encourages the "pretty waves" and subdues the "frizz bomb". Which is huge for me and my ginormous head of un-ruly hair. (Bonus: it smells great too!)

3. Outlast Lipstain. I am such a fan of this stuff. It really does last for a long time and the "Nude Kiss" and "Everbloom Kiss" are my favorite summer shades. My only complaint is that it's not really moisturizing. So I put the lipstain on in the morning and apply a little Burt's Bees Lip Balm throughout the day. Perfect!

4. Essie Nail Polish. I really think Essie makes a great nail polish. And if you haven't seen the 2010 Resort Collection, you should... here. This color is called "Turquoise & Caicos" and it looks great with sun kissed skin.

5. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock. This sunscreen, with Helioplex technology... blah, blah, blah! I have no idea what that means, all I know for sure is that it's super sheer and drys almost instantly. There's nothing I hate more than sticky or greasy lotions. Blech!!!

What are the 5 things you can't leave home without?

  2. Well don't you have some fun things in your bag?! First of all any mascara that would make me smile because it looks funny, would be worth trying. I think that Kim from Savvy Southern liked this as well. Must try it. I am glad to hear that you like the Outlast lip stain because I have been wanting to try it too.

    Thanks so much for joining the party.


  3. I want to try that mascara! Seriously! And, that essie turquoise nail polish looks so cool!

  4. Thst sunscreen is the best! We use it for sailing...when you are on the water all day! xx
