3 Summer Essentials with The Feminine Crusade

Grace @ No.21 Saturday, July 13, 2013

I am super excited about guest posting over Grace’s beautiful blog today. I found out what a sweetheart she is when she designed my blog. Thank you for having me today girl.
In summers I look for two things in my makeup. One, is it waterproof? Two, would it make my skin dewy? So this post comprises of 3 of my summer essentials, a mascara that would not melt even on Mercury (don’t take me literally please) and a blush and a BB cream that would make sun hit on all the right places.
Foundations find a place in the back of my drawer when I fish all my BB Creams out in the summer. I would not be able to live without a BB Cream in this weather. It gets so hot and humid that the thought of having anything heavier than a BB Cream on my face makes me cringe. I even steer towards tinted moisturisers sometimes. But Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream is my all-time favourite because it feels as light as a tinted moisturiser and gives the coverage a BB Cream should. Not like all the claims the many drugstore BB Creams are making today. On top of that, besides having skin-adjusting properties it also gives a beautiful glow to my skin.  And oh it also has SPF.
Have you ever stared into your NARS Orgasm’s pan and wondered how cool would it be if it melts into creamy goodness? I know you haven’t, lol. But still, Orange County Girl is Orgasm’s cream blush form in some ways. It is very similar in colour, a gorgeous warm peachy-gold, but it lacks in pigmentation and staying power. I love cream blushes, they make my cheeks look like glowing apples haha. Orange County Girl looks amazing on me, the soft coral-peach with hints of shimmering gold. I don’t even use a highlighter with this one.
This mascara is a PAIN to remove. One of the reasons, you won’t see this mascara budging no matter what. If you have problems with runny (waterproof) mascaras, then this might be your answer. I very rarely wear this one, since it really takes so long to have it off my eyes. But since it is summer, and holiday season, there are times when I am out till night and I need something that looks as good as new by the end of the day, then I’d turn to this vile False Lash Effect. It is a one of the darkest blacks I own and gives full thick lashes. 
What products can’t you live without in summer?

  3. I also have that Max Factor mascara and it is really a pain to remove. Although the colour is amazing, the blackest of them all, it really tends to smudge under my eyes so I don't really like it and use it only in extreme situations ;) xx
