Good Lord, I'm in Love with Another Gloss: Smashbox Desert Chic

I don't care that folks are already talking about Fall stuff. Summer is too darned short to speed things up by focussing on Fall makeup, especially when it feels like this summer has barely begun. Besides, summer stock is still in stores, and they're certainly not gonna run out of Fall supplies in the next couple of weeks, so I'm still talking glowy skin with a sunkissed finish.

Plus I've fallen in love with another gorgeous lip gloss from a summer collection. Sheesh.

Smashbox's limited-edition Desert Chic Lip Enhancing Gloss in Cactus Flower ($22 CAN/$18 US) is, of course, a ripe watermelon-y shade, and it feels wonderfully comfy on the lips, moist without a lick of sticky. (FYI, it's the middle one in the image above.) The shiny lasts for some time, but I also love the soft stained finish left once the shine fades. Very pretty and modern.


The limited-edition Desert Chic Fusion Body Bronzing Powder ($64 CAN/$55 US) is pretty nifty, too. Lightly fragranced with a seaside scent reminiscent of Bobbi Brown Beach, the oversize compact delivers a sexy bronzed finish to shoulders, decolleté, arms, legs -- wherever you'd like gleam -- with a comes-with kabuki brush (look ma, no bronzed palms!).

Well, I'm up for more glowy summer patio time. You?

Smashbox is available at select Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques, Sephora and
