Beauty Bloggers' Must Have Summer Products!

Who better to go to than beauty bloggers' when you are looking for those "must-have" products? As we are all trying to cut back and stream-line, especially for Summer as we lighten up, I thought I would go to the best to weigh in. So, I put a call to some of my favorite beauty bloggers' and asked them to tell me what their three must-have Summer products are.

Bionic Beauty's Jami swears by Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Mascara, Sonia Kashuk Tinted Moistuirizer (w/ SPF 15) and Loreal Lipstick in Mango Tango.

The beauty editor over at Beyond Beauty Basics, Cj, said her Summer must-haves are SPF30 Suscreen Powder by Peter Thomas Roth, Fresh High Noon Fresh Face Glow Liquid Bronzer and CHANEL Glossimer Lip Gloss in Seashell.

A Mom in Red High Heels' Tammy says that Nars Lipgloss in Greek Holiday, Aveeno Positively Ageless Moisturizer SPF 30, and Marc Jacobs Daisy Fragrance help her through the heat.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, Bath & Body Works Body Splash, as well as Sonya Dakar Drying Potion are the must-have Summer products that Latoicha Givens at Luxe Tips suggests.

Celebrity makeup artist blogger and eyebrow specialist Elke Von Freudenberg told me that her favorites for Summer are Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess Body Oil Spray, My Blend Powder Veil SPF 40 and Cargo Bronzer in Medium.

The Makeup Girl herself, Lianne Farbes, says that her three Summer must-haves are Tarte Little Blot Book,  NARS the Multiple and Waterproof Mascara, which is currently CoverGirl's Lash Blast.

Toya from The Life of a Ladybug swears by MAC Paint Pot's, in Indianwood and Rubenesque, Laura Mercier's Bronzing Duo in Pink Bronze and a lip balm, such as Bobbi Brown's Tinted Lip Balm or MAC's new Tendertones.

A Touch of Blushers' PJ picks three of her favorites for Summer -  Boots No.7 Firm-Your-Body Sun Lotion SPF 15, Olay Daily Illuminating UV Fluid (with SPF 15), and Dior's Golden Dior Luminizing Makeup Jewel.

The Editorial Director of Beauty News NYC, Dina, tells me that three of her must haves are Ineke's After My Own Heart Perfume, Evian's newly redesigned Brumisateur Facial Spray, as well as Paul Mitchell's classic Tea Tree Special Shampoo and Conditioner.

Shannon from A Girl's Gotta Spa shares her three must-haves too. She says she uses Aqua Tan Tanning Body Milk, a lip gloss with that all impsrtnat SPF, and Joico's Skin Luxe Golden Shimmer.

My sister Cindi from The Fragrance Fanatic suggests a new Summer fragrance as one of your Summer must haves. Her favorites are Very Irresistible Givenchy Summer Cocktail, Daisy by Marc Jacobs, and Flower by Cynthia Rowley.

Finally, my must have Summer products, and yes, I am listing more than three, are Essie's Nail Polish in a bright pink for my toes (I am currently loving her new neon pink in Short Shorts), Lancôme’s Soleil Ultra Expert Sun Care SPF 50, Philosophy's Mineral Blush Compact Duo Blush Bronzer in Pink/Bronze, Self-tanner (which I have too many favorites to list), CHANEL's Active Moisture Tinted Lotion, and Clinique's Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Hazelnut.
