Meg: Products I Love

Products I Love

Every girl has her own specialized arsenal of products she loves to use. I love trying out new things, especially lip colors! Even though I don’t pay too much attention to what’s in season clothing wise, I do like to change my make up to match the season or my mood.


1. Mac Studio Fix powder: I’ve always loved to use pressed powders. This particular powder provides excellent coverage without feeling too heavy. If you want a nice airbrushed effect, use a brush instead of the sponge it comes with.


2. Elf Bronzer: Sold in most target stores, Elf is typically priced at $3 for ALL of their products. Amazing, right? I use bronzer in the summertime to get that poolside look without roasting in the sun for hours!


3. Elf Matte Lip Color: Again, this product was only $3. It is the perfect summer substitute for lipstick (which requires upkeep throughout the day) or lip gloss (which tends to be sticky and thick). It goes on smooth and gives you a nice hint of moisture.


4. Hoops: I love hoops in the summertime! I got this particular pair from target but as you can imagine, you can find them just about anywhere. Hoops can dress up a sundress or add some sass to a girly floral top.


5. Kate Spade Twirl: My favorite scent quite possibly of all time. Twirl is packed with “pink watermelon”, blackberry, and red currant. It’s light, with hints of floral (in my opinion). Wearing Twirl is like wearing a Spring day. You can buy it in 3.4 oz bottles, 1.7 oz bottles, or a travel size roller ball.

Here are my summer faves worn all together:


Do you guys have any summer products I should be aware of? Send them my way!


Ps: Thanks for all of the honeymoon suggestions! We definitely have some thinking to do.

    I love Elf bronzer! It amazes me that a product so inexpensive can be so good! This reminds me I need to stock up 🙂

    Elf has a fabulous make-up setting spray too. It’s $3 and works just as well as the 10x more expensive Urban Decay setting spray. It is a must-have every day for me, but especially in the Summer in the Deep South when the humidity causes my make up to run immediately.

      I’ll have to try the spray! Thanks for the tip 🙂

    If you order elf online a lot of their products are only ONE yes $1 dollar! AMAZING! And they have a lot of “natural, mineral” products! 🙂

    You’re gorgeous! <3 Thanks for the tips!

    Great choices Meg, as of now I am loving the lipsticks from Dex NY, they have beautiful colors and are natural!

    • Meg on May 31, 2012 at 10:47 pm

      Ooh, I will definitely check them out!

    I’ve actually never heard of Elf products before! I do love my Mac makeup though! Definitely a favourite

  8. Carrie on May 31, 2012 at 11:48 pm

    I was just raving about that elf bronzer today! It is amazing; such a steal! It is just as good as smashbox’s one, which is around 30! Love! Plus it isn’t tested on animals.

    Will say , though, that I’ve gotten some other elf products and unfortunately been disappointed.

  9. Lisa @ Fresh Spinach on May 31, 2012 at 11:52 pm

    I’ve been thinking about getting a new scent, I will have to check out the Kate Spade one! Thanks!

    Is that pic of you? You look different! Anyhoo, I love ELF too – especially the $1 online price! But, I have to admit, that for the some of the products, I definitely feel like I get what I pay for (so for $1, I get something crappy), even though for others they’re great. So, I’m glad to hear that the bronzer is a good one!

  11. Shelley on June 1, 2012 at 12:13 am

    Ok, just realized this is “Meg,” & not “Gina.” I’m dumb. Forgive me – I’m new 🙂

    I’ve been using Studio Fix since I was a freshman in college! You don’t really even need foundation underneath. Just a little cover up plus Studio Fix and you’re good to go! 🙂

  13. Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed on June 1, 2012 at 8:12 am

    I love ELF! Yay for cheap makeup.

  14. Melissa (Better Fit) on June 1, 2012 at 10:28 am

    Nice eyeliner in that photo! I am totally rubbish at eyeliner application. I usually end up with a big mess! 🙂

  15. kari on June 1, 2012 at 9:18 pm
