Beauty Buys: Summer 2011

Regular readers know that here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we live by the “new season, new you” credo, which means with summer on the horizon, we are excitedly anticipating the slew of new beauty products hitting the market! What are we looking for this season? Aside from must-haves like a lightweight-yet-effective sunscreen and a shampoo that fights humidity, we are currently lusting over neon eyeshadows, champagne-colored nail polishes, and juicy lip glosses. On that note, read on for all our summer beauty must-haves and make sure you create some space in your beauty kit as we’re sure you’ll find something you love in today’s Beauty Buys story!

Now, if you spend your summer attending barbecues and poolside parties, jet-setting to exotic locations, or dancing the night away at music festivals, a no-fuss beauty regimen is key. On that note, we always start our seasonal beauty shopping with a few new nail polish picks, and this summer we just couldn’t resist the allure of Chanel’s newest Le Vernis nail polishes: Mimosa, a shimmering yellow champagne, and Morning Rose, a shimmering pink champagne. Both polishes have a soft and understated color, which means you don’t have to worry about saving them for your next big party—they can be worn to formal events, too, or even a casual business meeting.

Then again, if you love color and you aren’t afraid to try bold beauty looks, make sure you pick up Givenchy’s Le Prismissime 9-Colors Eyeshadow ($62). The neon hues aren’t subtle, but there are so many options that you can mix and match until you find one you like. Similarly, Stila’s Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liners ($22) are perfect if you want a hassle-free statement eye this summer. Finally, we definitely plan on trying a new scent this season and Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Soleil Fragrance ($55) is on our must-have list—its warm mix of bergamot and orange blossom is sure to conjure memories of sunny days at the beach, even if you are stuck in your office! As you can see, whatever your budget, whatever your style, whatever your beauty needs are this summer, there are plenty of ideas to choose from. Enjoy our favorite summer Beauty Buys and happy shopping!
