Products I need to get before my trip!

Long time... No blog. I know I say that every time I post! But I figure, I need to remember to buy some things before I leave (on July 29th, 37 days!!!). This will probably help me more than it will ever interest you. Hopefully you get something out of it :)

1. MAC's Fix +
One of my ALL TIME must have products. Many people think it's just water, but I use it multiple times a day! Right after my makeup is done I spritz it on then use my SS187 to swirl and stipple it into my skin. I swear it gives your skin such a nice, pretty, healthy dewy look that I adore! I also use it throughout the day if I feel a little gross or just want a little pick me up. My beloved bottle is on it's last leg and has only a couple of spritzs left... So I definitely need to pick up another bottle for my Grecian holiday :)

2. Benefit You Rebel Lite
I know, I know! I have come so close to ordering this multiple times.. I have no clue why I never take the plunge. Even though I love my MAC Face & Body foundation, it is hot as ___ down in Greece and I do not want heavy foundation! I usually mix my foundation w/ my moisturizer, but I just want something I can throw on and then use a dusting of MSFN (Medium + in the summer) for a setting powder!

3. NARS blush in "Taj Majal"
I know this blush looks crazy, but i've been convince to purchase it because of Michele1218 who claims with a light hand this is an amazing summer blush! I am coral crazy, so I feel compelled to purchase this before I depart haha

4. NARS lipgloss in "Greek Holiday"
... I think the name says it all.

5. Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Once again a re-purchase! My little tube that protects me from the dreaded creases and clumps is almost done! And again, with the heat and without primer my shadow will fallllll off my lids!

6. Sunscreen for my face!
Even though I never burn *knock on wood* in Greece, I did have quite the sun burn this past week because of Canadian sun! So I now know I need sunscreen for my face... my body is covered!

7. NARS Lipstick in "Roman Holiday"
A gorgeous hot-pinkish lip color and a fabulous name... What more could I want? I think hot pinks look amazing with tans, and this seems perfect! Can't wait to swatch it :)

... that's all I can think of for now! But i'll be updating this list for sure :)


  1. I'd totally buy Nars "Greek Holiday" lipgloss too if I was going on a vacation to Greece, no matter what the color lol!

  2. hey, just a tip, I bought you rebel lite a couple weeks ago, maybe a month and a half and figured since im not a reallly dark skin tone, itd last me troughout the summer. however i have now realized that i should have gotten the regular one, especially with how tan i get in the summer, so i would actually suggest you get the regular one. especially since youre greek and will get really tan in greece :)

  3. Hey Allie!
    Just a tip here, I think you should pick up the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer instead of the You Rebel because i have tried both and Laura Mercier is better my a landslide!!!

  4. I recommend the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen for your face!! Its fantastic, no greasy feel!! whooop
