All links go to my reviews.
Best foundation: Cover FX Custom Color Drops
This summer, I spent a lot of time diving. Because of this, many of my foundations were too light for me! Since I didn’t want to purchase a new foundation, I bought the Cover FX Custom Color Drops in N70. This is the shade “for medium to deeply tanned skin with neutral undertones”, and it worked out great to adjust my foundations.
Best face primer: Kao Sephora Prima Vista primer
It’s been a long time since a Japanese product excited me this much! This primer has been winning a lot of Japanese beauty awards since it was launched. I finally bit the bullet to purchase it, and it definitely makes my foundation stay on longer in the summer.
Best eyeshadow: Morphe 12S Soul of Summer eyeshadow palette
Ahh I wish I had been able to buy more Morphe stuff! This is a great eyeshadow palette with lots of every day neutral colors. Even the blue-gray color in the right hand side works great on my eyes.
Best eyeshadow primer: Milani eyeshadow primer
I love how it keeps my eyeshadow from creasing. I love the price, and I love that it is in a squeeze tube. Definitely, this is the best eyeshadow primer at the drugstore!
Best makeup remover: MKB Aqua Cleansing oil
Surprisingly, this is a store brand product from Matsumoto Kiyoshi, a major Japanese drugstore chain. It is one of the cheapest cleaning oils available, and yet it takes off all of my eye makeup easily.
Best new skin care product: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel
I bought this on a suggestion from a fellow blogger. This is such a great chemical peel and definitely worth the price tag. My skin feels smoother and looks better every time I use it.
Best fragrance: Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne
Ah, if only Jo Malone perfumes were more affordable… This is such a wonderful scent which is feminine without being sweet or fruity.
Best hair product: Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
Another year, another salt spray. Salt sprays are my go to styling product in the summer months. This year, I finally found a product from the drugstore which works! I also love how this smells.
