Well, the summer is almost here and as much as I hate it , there is nothing I can do to escape it. Yeah, love cooler weather coz my place gets humid as hell. Hopefully my summer make up picks will help me get through it! These are my picks for now, but am still looking out for better foundation. So, will let you guys know as soon as I find one!

Here we go :

Moisturizer : Biore pore minimizing light weight moisturizer.
Sunscreen: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock - SPF 70.
Blush : Milani - Luminous, NYC - West Side Wine, Revlon - Wine with Everything, Revlon - Toast of New York
Foundation: Maybelline Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Liquid Foundation.

So, what are your summer picks? Let me know. I would love to hear from you! What is the hot item in your shelf now? I have a recommendation for my girls in India, for the best summer moisturizer - Garnier Body Cocoon Moisturizer - the one in the orange bottle. It smells divine and is the best moisturizer I have used for summer. Have you tried it ?

Did neutrogena ultra sheer sunscreen really work for you? It leaves this white cast on me.. not obvious in person, but REALLY obvious in pictures. I can use it on my body but not on my face.. let me know how it works for you!

Hey Anu! I am definitely gonna check out Nars Taj Mahal n Madly. Yeah I have tried HIP lip glosses. I have one - TEMPTING. Its a gorgeous color and fortunately this tube has no taste or smell.
You must try this color, it will look great on ya. I love it - its perfect for the stained lip look.
Coming to the taste, I cant stand any lip product if it has a weird smell or taste other than mint. Hopefully this one works good for ya!

Hey Sonali! Yeah the Neutrogena SPF 70 works well for me, I do find the white cast initially...but it disappears in 10 or so minutes. However, I havent tried taking pictures with it on my face, so I cant tell ya about it :( Sorry.

May be you could try mixing it with a moisturizer and applying it on your face. I have tried this trick with other sunscreens and they help reduce the white cast.
Another great sunscreen is the one from Clnique. You could may be try that.
Hope this helps! Have a great weekend!
