Master Summer Beauty With These Must-Have Essentials

THINK: The ultimate warm weather necessities

NEW YORK, May 30, 2014 / PRNewswire / — WHAT THEY ARE: The three beauty items you’ll want to stock up on this season. You’re finally facing a whole new season of beach days, rooftop lounging, and outdoor cookouts, so it’s time to switch out your old winter beauty standbys. Beauty in the heat is all about keeping it fresh–faced, bright, and totally effortless. These three essentials from Rimmel, NYC New York Color, and Sally Hansen are here to help you do just that.

  • Rimmel London BB Cream Matte ($6.99 each): With summer humidity and stickiness comes dreaded shine. Thankfully, this multitasking BB Cream offers all–day shine control with its ultra–effective mattifying powders that prevent the need for blotting and retouching through the day. Keep skin flawless without heavyweight foundation. After all, that’s the last thing you want to put on your face when you’re sweltering in heat. Instead, the lightweight BB Cream Matte offers nine essential skin–perfecting benefits in one for 100% natural looking coverage and easy blending. The formula also helps absorb sebum, tighten pores, and prevent clogged pores that plague skin during the summer, rebalancing oily skin with Bamboo Powder, Kaolin Clay, Witch Hazel, Algae, and Salicylic Acid. It even offers SPF 15 for every day sun protection.

  • Sally Hansen Ouch–Relief Wax Strip Kit ($6.99): Bare it all at the beach this summer–but try this easy, ouch–less at–home wax kit first. Perfect for even first–time wax users, the kit features breakthrough Pain–Relief TechnologyTM Pre–Wax Wipes that deliver pain–reducing Benzocaine directly to the skin for hair removal prep. The Pre–Waxed Cloth Strips contour perfectly to skin, cleanly removing hair from the face and bikini line for soft, smooth skin that lasts for up to eight weeks. Rid yourself of unwanted hair, then use the included Azulene Finishing Oil to remove excess wax and seal in moisture.

  • NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color ($1.99 each): Effortlessly add a bold swipe of color to your summer-look with these velvety smooth, long–lasting lipsticks. Available in a range of attention–grabbing colors, you can get a whole wardrobe of summer-bright lip shades with these moisturizing lipsticks that glide onto lips for a soft finish that never feels sticky or slick. Lasting through pool days and BBQs, the lipsticks hydrate and condition. Keep the rest of your look ultra–simple and say it all with your lips.
