Sephora's latest picks on the new must-have items for Summer 2011

We cannot allow the summer heat to be hotter than we are! We trust Sephora's best picks because all of the items that make the list are truly amazing.

Sephora beauty guru tells us what we must have:

Surf spray! by Bumble and Bumble

This is a salt-water based spray that gives your hair that beachy tousled look. Beachy hair is always trendy in the summertime so spray this in your hair to achieve that look whether or not you're at the beach!








Aqua Liner by Make Up For Ever

Summer makes us wet when we're in the water and sweat when the heat gets to be too much. It's inevitable that your face will drip and your make-up will unfortunately follow. We need that reliable waterproof mascara to keep us from looking like raccoons. This mascara guarantees that reliability. So sweat and get wet cause your eyes will stay impeccable!







Rouge Automatique by Guerlain

The gods have answered our prayers! We've all lost caps to our chapsticks and lipsticks...soooo incredibly annoying but Guerlain has created the innovative and much-needed one-handed lipstick! It's a flip-top applicator that you can just flip shut with one finger and it's attached to the lipstick so you don't have to worry about losing any more caps. It's hydrating and long-lasting too.







Illumin8 with Youthful Synergy Complex Bronzer by Anastasia

This product deserves a scientific introduction: "This product is clinically proven to hydrate skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After four weeks of daily consumer use, 78% reported skin appeared smother, 73% reported skin appeared illuminated, and 68% reported skin appeared firmer." It contains all the good stuff like green tea, Vitamins A, B, C, E, and F, brown algae, diamond core powder, sea whip, etc. Ummmm we were completely sold after seeing that this bronzer would be making our faces look tanner, firmer, and younger! 





Girl Meets Pearl by Benefit

I am an avid user of Benefit products so I know anything by them not only beautifies but benefits! (pun intended) This product is a soft pinkish liquid luminizer that gives you that gorgeous glow. It also moisturizes your skin with the sesame seed oil,  raspberry, and chamomile and also keeps your skin firm and smooth with the sweet almond seed extract. It smells good too!--like raspberries. Yum!







Pore Purifying Black Strips by Boscia

Summer makes our skin oilier and more prone to breaking out. Have no fear, Boscia is here! Each strip takes out all of that gross pore-clogging dirt and oil from your pretty little nose. These strips will make a huge difference but also treat your nose with gentle care. It also gives you a soothing and cooling feeling after applying the strips!. Contains: charcoal powder (detoxifies skin and takes impurities out), silica (controls oil), and witch hazel (astringent for tightening pores) 






So, get your butt to Sephora and be hotter than the summer! 8)
