I've always been curious about dry shampoo but never committed to trying it. After weeks of research and countless hours of web surfing, I decided to give the Batiste Dry Shampoo Original a try. The online reviews were right, this dry shampoo is amazing. I have thin hair, and if I don't wash it every day, it gets oily. Well, I don't need to do that anymore. To use, just simply shake the bottle and spray onto oily parts of your hair. It will leave a white powdery finish to your hair at first but don't worry. Leave on for a couple of minutes then brush out. It gives my hair the most fantastic instant volume. Using dry shampoo is a super easy and quick way to give your hair a boost. It smells fresh and the price can't be beat. I highly recommend this product to those who'd like to give dry shampoo a try.

3. Neutrogena Age Shield Face Sunblock Lotion SPF 110
One of my summer essentials is sunblock. On a recent trip to my local drug store in search of a new one to try, the Neutrogena's Age Shield Sun Block caught my attention because of its high SPF of 110. I've been using it for several weeks now and am very pleased with the results. This sunscreen provides excellent coverage and has not caused any sensitivity issues on my skin. The lotion is pretty thick but blends seamlessly. I wear it daily under my make up, and it provides very good moisture as well as sun protection without white cast and no oily face.
4. NYX Matte Lipstick in Summer Breeze
As mentioned here, I've been experimenting with different colors of lipstick lately. I picked up this NYX matte lipstick in summer breeze at Ulta a few weeks ago and have been wearing it quite a bit. It is highly pigmented and glides on smoothly. Although, I'm not really a pink lipstick kinda girl, I must say this color definitely has that pop of color I was looking for. Overall, it's a great shade for summer!
5. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polishes:
Maybelline recently launched a brand new line of 40 nail polishes in their new Color Show collection. I picked up “Born With It” and “Green With Envy” after reading so many raved reviews. These nail polishes are absolutely amazing! Maybelline Born With It is a very pale pink (very similar to the Essie Fiji that I love). The formula was great and very easy to use. Although, it would take 3 coats for the color to show. I've been a fan of mint green on the nails since it became quite popular as of late. I picked up the Revlon Jaded a while ago and wasn't too impressed with the color. Maybelline Green With Envy is a gorgeous bright turquoise green cream. The shade is exactly what I am looking for. Both are easy to apply and fairly quick to dry. Best of all, they're super affordable.
