Founded in 2005 by beauty junkie Carla Maganinho, Product Girl is an outlet for her to discuss her favorite finds. Over the years, the site has gained a loyal following — and even another staffer, Laurie Leopold. Together the blogging duo cover everything from the latest launches to their recent splurges. This week, these ladies-in-the-know are guest blogging for us about all things summer!
To classify as a summer Beauty VIP in our world, a product has to be somewhat ‘proof’—and that is smudge-, budge- and water-proof, or course. Our makeup has to work a little bit harder in the summer because, let’s be real, heat and humidity can wreak havoc on a polished face. We want to wear less makeup, but still look put together. These Beauty VIPs keep our makeup on lockdown all day and allow us to have a little fun with our beauty routine.
If there’s ever a time to rock color, it’s summer. We love the new Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner for a pop of color along the upper lashline. Impossibly easy to use and so vibrant, these are an A+ VIP beauty staple for us this summer.
Jouer Moisturizing Lip Glosses, with their splashes of shine and glimmer are the perfect complement to a summer face. We love that they are not sticky, and that they moisturize effectively (thanks to the addition of shea butter and jojoba seed oil). We’re partial to Rose Glisten.
Two words: bronze and highlight. Regardless of any makeup we wear, we always check these boxes. For highlighting, we’re obsessed with RMS Beauty Living Luminizer. The brand’s founder, Rose-Marie Swift, is Gisele’s makeup artist (yes, that Gisele) and this organic luminizer definitely gives us a model glow. For bronzer, we love the classic NARS Laguna. And lucky for us, it now comes in new versions just for summer—a multiple and illuminator.
