The favorites of the lot include cream blushes, a matt bronzer to give me instant cheek bones and cream highlighters to emphasize. I can say this is all I need but we know that we all want more. Let me know your summer essentials below and have a great one this year 🙂

Friday fave: The sheer lipgloss

I thought to keep my self inspired I’ll start this post weekly focusing on that one product which out my crop has been in use those seven days regularly, good way to review things IMO.

For the first week, I have the sheer lip glosses. Summer has hit me hard this season probably because of the shift in region, I’ve come to live in the agricultural hub of Pakistan and this is the harvesting season…friends worst is yet to come. So, the urge to wear nothing on my face except heaps of SPF has been the rule and if you check out my Summer Essentials for Skincare, you’ll know that its precisely what I do during the hottest hours of the day. By the evening my face is lightly made up with products you’ll see in my next post and one more than the other: sheer, non-sticky, reminding me of teenage years sheer lip glosses. My choices are below:

from left; Color Studio Haute gloss in Audacious,  Rougue & Vegas. Essence Stay With Me gloss in Berry Me. L'Oreal Glam Shine lip gloss in Endless Light

The colors are dark and vivid in the tube then on the lips there is tint of the actual color which is more than enough for me, the one’s I have are not sticky and neither the L’Oreal Glam Shine Lip gloss nor the Color Studio ones which I have are gritty with chunky glitter on the contrary they provide a lovely shine, a tint of color and slightest twinkle of glitter. The Essence Stay With Me gloss is really well pigmented, shiny and not sticky. Just what I crave when made up, sure re-application is necessary but I love the fact that they are light on the lips and go with my overall look which I know a creamy gloss would just not do.

There you have it, my obsession for this week…I’m pretty sure it’ll be for more than just this but then there are other categories too other than lips no? Also by Allah’s Grace I have more than enough products to choose, use and love/hate in a week so next week hopefully you’ll see a similar post if I don’t end up procrastinating it, which is a possibility since I’m reading “The Fault In Our Stars” by John Green on Marib’s recommendation (yep I saw your tweet) and when I read, God help me I won’t even realize if there is a fire in the same room.

Anyway, let me know your week’s particular faves too please. Takecare!
