summer 2014 makeup beauty

Summer is almost over now! Although New York is currently have some sort of crazy heat wave. None the less it’s been a great Summer of makeup and beauty so I thought I’d give you a chance to look through a few Summer 2014 Makeup and Beauty Hits you MIGHT have missed out on. And hey, some are permanent but some are limited edition and still available so you won’t want to miss those.

Take a look!

Sephora Kiss Me Balm (Review & Swatches)
There’s still time to grab these very nifty little lip spheres from Sephora. Hydrating, yummy, and quite pigmented these little spheres are a fab little budget pick up! They surprised me as I expected sheer color pay off but they packed a delicious amount of color pay off! I loved ’em so much I ended up grabbing a few more shades after my review! A total Summer hit!

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin BB Creme
At $3.99 this little lightweight BB Cream shocked me. Sure, it’s sheer but it has enough coverage to brighten and even out skin tone giving skin light, weightless coverage which made it a perfect Summer hit! But hey, it’s totally permanent so you can grab it now at drugstores!

Perricone MD No Lipstick Lipstick (Review & Swatches)
Perricone MD’s launch of their new makeup collection this Summer turned into a smashing success for me! Granted there were quite a few Summer hits from the dear Doctor but No Lipstick Lipstick sticks out as a great one. This permanent lip balm adds a hint of color, shine, and moisture to lips for a no lipstick lipstick look! Loves it!

It Cosmetics CC+ Veil Beauty Fluid Foundation
Possibly one of It Cosmetics’ greatest creation this Summer was their new fluid foundation! Don’t worry, this one is permanent too! But it made for a great lighter, sheerer foundation for Summer looks. It brightens, it doesn’t cling to drier areas, it gives skin a flawless, natural look, and it just makes my complexion look amazing! You NEED it! Granted, the lighter coverage made it a breathable Summer hit for my skin but I know I’ll be using it well into the Fall and Winter!

Butter London Lippy Sheer Lipgloss
(Review & Swatches)
Chuffed is a limited edition shade of Butter London Lippy Sheer Lipgloss that I absolutely adored. Now this one is limited edition grab it up if you want it. The sheer, shimmering tangerine shade is just stunningly natural on lips! Loved it!

Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick
(Review & Swatches)
Who does matte lipstick right? Clinique does! There new range of soft, creamy, comfortable to wear mattes were a smashing success for Summer looks but hell, who doesn’t love a gorgeous matte lip come Fall? There are available permanently from Clinique and although some of the delicious Summer shades I tried were a Summer 2014 hit for me there’s still plenty of other shades that will work well into your Fall and Winter looks!

    The Sephora lip balms, the Perricone No Lipstick Lipstick and the IT Cosmetics fluid foundation are on my wishlist!

    I got the It Cosmetics foundation this summer, and I have to agree, it is amazing. If you like a fresh natural look, it is a great product. The SPF 50 doesn’t hurt either.

    I think most love was shown for my Becca Shimmer Soufle in Lychee Opal this summer!

    I know you wrote this a few days ago but why is it so hot here? I felt like I was getting a workout on my way to a workout because the heat and humidity was enough to get me sweating.
