I am a huge fan of Lancome products so I wanted to show you two essentials in my makeup bag during the summer months. I have been obsessed with the Star Bronzer palette and Gloss in Love! I own a ton of Lancome products but these are two that I have been gravitating towards lately and for good reason!

star bronzer.jpgThe Star Bronzer in Bronze Essence is a gorgeous trio of shades. From left to right you have a blush, a bronzer, and a highlighter. These are formulated for use on any skintone and any face shape. I don’t know how well they would work with a super dark complexion, but for my fair skin they work beautifully. If I had to change anything, I might make the highlighter slightly lighter, but really, this is perfection. The blush comes off as a coral pink on my skin and looks very natural. It has a hint of shimmer but doesn’t overwhelm.

This will look especially stunning in the summer, but right now if I put some of this on my cheekbones over top of the bronzer it still really makes them pop! I love that the bronzer isn’t super dark and it is matte on me. All of the shades have a bit of a gleam to them so I wouldn’t call them flat by any stretch. This is how I’ve been getting a natural flush lately and I’ve been loving it!

gloss in love.jpgGloss in Love in Scarlett has been my go to for a sheer, shiny lip with a tinge of red. It’s very subtle but feels luxuriously soft and smooth on my lips and works with every single outfit because it’s so sheer. The applicator is also very special on this product. As you can see above, there’s a push button. Rather than twisting out the doe foot applicator, you simply press the button and the wand comes out the top. It’s pretty fancy shmancy!

The glosses also claim to have 6 hours of moisture, which doesn’t surprise me because my lips feel so good even after the gloss fades away.

    I love both of these…especially the lip gloss. I’m a huge lip gloss fan and I’m especially partial to sheer colors that are very versatile. I know what’s going on my next shopping list!
