For me I don't always have time to make a run to the usual suspects for my beauty needs, luckily there's no shortage of CVS stores on New York City streets. So if I'm ever running low on some of my drugstore favorites I pop in and grab what I need and then off to where I'm going, whether it be home, brunch or the park (in today's case, it's the zoo). So I'm rounding up my 5 favorite Summer CVS finds and giving one lucky reader a $50 gift card to shop their own essentials (enter below).
I am serious about my sun protection all year around but I'm even more serious about once the temperatures start heating up. So, I opt for a 60 spf+ broad spectrum sunscreen. A LOT of people have been talking about LA ROCHE-POSAY so when I spotted it on sale for $20 at CVS, I grabbed it immediately.
2. Two-In-1 Color
Next all over color is a must, even better when I can use it on the go. I was thrilled when I saw this All-In-1 Beauty Balm Cheek and Lip from Physician's Formula. The peach immediately caught my eye and the fact that it has an SPF 20! Yes please.
3. Resort Ready Mani - Pedi's
Also, since I've been skipping out on mani and pedi's since the whole unfair treatment of workers in the city exposé came out I've been opting to do them myself. Which turns out to be more cost effective and actually fun. How did I forget this! I'm taking a break from my lavenders and pinks and opting for pastel blues and green to pop with my hair. Essie's Fashion Playground and Bikini So Teenie are my newest picks!
4. Summer Ready Primer
Feeling like you're face is melting during the summer is probably one of my least favorite feelings, I know you're with me on this. So a good primer is a must, this spray on, Salma Hayek Nuance (I love her line) Oil-Free Sheer Liquid Veil with an SPF 50 does the trick. And it's under $10!
5. Sweat-proof Eye Liner
We know how much I love a good cat eye so I'm dependent on something that isn't going to give me raccoon eyes after a few minutes in the heat. NYX Super Skinny Marker in Carbon Black does the trick and if I need a touch up before dinner It fits perfectly in the smallest of bags.
