Makeup Wars: Favorite Sunscreen


Makeup Wars Favorite Sunscreens

With Memorial Day just past, we are now officially in the Summer season. So, in this edition of “Makeup Wars”, we are discussing our favorite sunscreens. Now, we all know that I tend to make sure that most of the products I use contain SPF, because this pale, freckled skin isn’t going to keep itself looking like this on its own, that’s for sure. Because of that, I didn’t really include any of those products, like moisturizers, but just the products that I tend to use for its sunscreen properties on their own.

Coola Sport SPF 35 Citrus Mimosa Sunscreen Spray: Scent is a HUGE part of sunscreen to me. I swear, it goes back to growing up and smelling the Coppertone Coconut Oil wafting by the pools growing up, all SPF 4 of it! And not only does this smell like yummy citrus, it is actually good for you. It “will also nourish, repair and hydrate skin with 97% certified organic ingredients like Cucumber, Algae and Strawberry Extracts; and Red Raspberry Seed Oil, a natural sunscreen and anti-inflammatory rich in Omega-3 and 6″. Ridiculous, right? And it sprays really well, too.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 100+: Is SPF 100+ overkill? Yes. Do we know that anything over SPF 35 is not any more effective? Yes. Does seeing the SPF so high help me mentally think that I am doing an amazing thing? Yes. And that is why I use this one. Plus, the ultra-sheer factor really does help this absorb super quick so it doesn’t feel like it is just sitting on my face. I will wear this on the days that I won’t be wearing any makeup and will be out in the sun. Roasting.

Mario Badescu Lip Wax SPF 15: I know I have told you about my love for this lip balm before. It’s my holy grail lip saver, and the SPF makes it a necessity in the summer months when I venture outside.

Dr. Denese SPF 20 Defense Day Lip Veil: Sometimes, I need to have a bit of a shine on my lips, but still protect them. That is when I will whip out my Dr. D Lip Veil – this is a high shine gloss (*that tastes good), and still protects with a SPF 20. I’m pretty sure that this is discontinued on the Dr. D site, but you can still find it around. It doesn’t take much for glossy coverage.

So, what do you use for sunscreen? Are you a spray or lotion user? Let me know below and then check out the sunscreen favorites from the other ladies:

Makeup Wars: Favorite Waterproof Makeup


Makeup Wars Favorite Waterproof Makeup

In this edition of “Makeup Wars” we are talking about our favorite waterproof products. This is perfect timing what with the temps starting to heat up. I think of these more as meltproof/sweatproof products than pure waterproof products, since I am not that much of a pool going gal, as my pale skin can attest. So, I decided to give you guys my quick and dirty look for the summer, and it will even work at the pool, if you are in to that kind of thing.

Now, I don’t include any face products, because, well, none of those are waterproof & they are just going to sweat off of me no matter what I do, so I barely even try during the warm months. 110deg Oklahoma Summer will do that to a gal.

I always tend to keep my eyes fixed, and these items keep them ready, no matter the moistness:

Mally Beauty Waterproof Volumizing Mascara: If you guys remember, this was one of my “Desert Island” staples, so, if it is good enough for the island, it’s good enough for hanging out by the pool. (*If you are looking for a drugstore WP mascara, you might also remember that I’ve hung out at the pool in some Covergirl LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara, too.)

Maybelline Color Tattoo Gel Shadow: I know I have told you about these over and over and over again, but they really are a great waterproof shadow option, especially for a drugstore brand – the variety of colors are amazing, but I generally keep a neutralish color around so I can play with brighter eyeliner.

Pixi Beauty Endless Silky Eye Pen: These eyeliners are ridiculously great for my eyes. They glide on almost as easy as liquid liner, but with a pencil width and wear. And, their waterproof claim is no joke. I have got an eye that continues to water like a weeping statue, whether from allergies or just to annoy the hell out of me (*which it does). These pencils have become my go-to liner that stands up to my constant wiping, without staining my eyelid, nor fading away after first wipe and comes in a bunch of different, vibrant colors.

As for my lips, we know that we can’t keep gloss or lipstick on for very long, and we need to reapply sunscreen lip products, esp hanging out by the pool/lake/ocean. The one thing I have found that keeps color on my lips and holds up to reapplication of lip wax is a lip stain:

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain: This drugstore goodie is water-based so you won’t dry out your lips and still keep color on your lips while playing in the water. (*Fun fact: I use this to draw on my kids’ face for Spirit Days at school – it wears off overnight and lasts thru sweaty pep rallies!)

So, these are the things that pretty much get me thru an Oklahoma summer. What are some of your favorite waterproof/meltproof/sweatproof products?

And, after you tell me that, go check out what these other lovelies have picked as their waterproof faves:
