10 best budget lipsticks and lipglosses for summer

In this new installment of my summer essentials series, I want to show you my favorite drugstore lipsticks and glosses for the season, because you don't have to break the bank to rock a bright coral or fuchsia lip! Like last week, most of these are not new products or recent launches, but the lippies I kept wearing last year and started digging out of my stash as soon as summer approached. Swatches of all shades are at the bottom!

#FrenchFriday: Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss & Blush in Nude Insolent

Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss & Blush in Nude Insolent - cream blush and lipstick

I briefly mentioned in my recent review of Burberry's new Lip & Cheek Bloom that my all-time favorite cream blush formula, Crème de Blush by Yves Saint Laurent, had been discontinued. The product I'm going to show you today for our French Friday post, the Baby Doll Kiss & Blush, is what took its place in YSL's makeup range. The main difference between the two products is that this new installment is both a cream blush and a lip color. As you can imagine, when the replacement occurred, I was both upset that my HG product was taken away (WHY YSL WHY?) and trembling in fear that the new Baby Doll Kiss & Blush wouldn't be as good. When the range launched in the spring of 2014, I didn't pay much attention, until I started noticing that the Crème de Blush was slowly disappearing from retailers websites... Then in a panic, I decided to try one, and ended up choosing a neutral shade, #10 Nude Insolent

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in 10 Senso - cream eyeshadow

Every time I review a cream eyeshadow (or cream blush for that matter) I feel the need to start by stating my love for everything creamy one more time. So here we go: I love cream stuff. Cream cheese frosting of course, but mostly in the makeup world, cream eyeshadows (and blushes). It's an addiction, and I'm hoarding so many that I have a shoe box full of jars, sticks and tubes (it's an Irregular Choice box, so it looks cooler than it sounds!). 

Now that you've got some background info about me and my cream stuff obsession, I have to tell you this, because I can't keep if for the end: this Giorgio Armani Eye Tint that I'm showing you today, it's my favorite cream shadow ever. There, I said it. You might want to continue reading nonetheless, you know, to learn why.

My Summer Beauty Essentials: 10 must-have Makeup Products I Can't Live Without

Our summer series continues today with a focus on my favorite makeup products for the warm season. Most of these items are not new, they're the handful of products that I kept using all summer long last year and started reaching for again in the past few weeks. They're the ones I would have a hard time replacing if they went away, because I simply can't live without them in the summer! I'll show you my favorite lippies for the season in a separate post, so come back next week for my top lipstick or glosses!
