Wanna know what’s really* worth the spend this summer? We’re making space on our topshelf for the new summer essentials that we’ll be reaching for all season long. Just in time for quarantine-release mini gatherings everywhere, Carlene discovers a brand new self-tanning-meets-serum hybrid, while Jill gives Wishful Skin’s new radiance-inducing face mask a go. (She tests the buzzy neck-snatching mask, too! Gimmick or great? Inquiring minds want to know!)

Jill takes Fenty’s new Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipsticks for a spin

On the makeup front, stay tuned as Carlene discovers a multi-purpose tinted balm – designed especially for sensitive skin – that’s already selling out at Sephora. Then, you won’t want to miss her take on Charlotte Tilbury’s new Airbrush Bronzers. Magnetic lashes that will make you question whether you ever need to spend on pro lash extensions again, a dry shampoo that lets you skip out on fine fragrance and Makeup Eraser The Sponge – BRAND NEW makeup sponge designed to go in the washing machine – if these products weren’t so #DamnGood, you’d swear they were too good to be true!
