Hello lovelies! These are my 10 "Must haves" for Summer 2010!

Urban Decay Summer of Love Palette: The colors in this are so pigmented and smooth! I love them! You can create a really smokey look with these hot summer shades! This comes with the eye priming potion in Sin and also a 24/7 liner in Bourbon.

Benefit Highbeam- The perfect highlight in my opinion! I really have to get to Sephora to get the full size!

Hana Shine Shield- This makes my hair so smooth and shiny! I love it. Use to make your hair shine when you wear your natural texture, curl, or flat iron!

AVON Smooth Minerals Blush in Radiance- I have really been loving this lately. There is no shimmer to this, just gorgeous color! It doesn't make my dry skin look dryer and it lasts all day with primer.

AVON Smooth Minerals Lipstick in Apricot Glow- I know coral is the big color for this summer, but if you are a fair skinned gal like myself that finds it hard to tan, this is a great option for you! I especially love this color on blue eyed babes! This is super smooth and you can wear lightly or build to make a bolder lip.

Sedona Lace 12 piece brush set in baby pink- I adore these brushes! If you want to read a full review (and how they compare to the Internet sensation Sigma), click here! These will not break your summer budget and apply makeup flawlessly!

MAC Fix +- Just a spritz of fix plus and your face will feel so refreshed! I don't know that it really does anything to make my makeup last any long, but it feels so good and also takes away any powder look I may get. It feels very moisturizing on my dry skin.

AVON Reversalist Day Cream with SPF 25- I love this moisturizer! Not only does it have SPF 25, it helps repair fine lines and helps prevent new ones! Yeah! Though I prefer products to be in a bottle with pump for hygiene, this is still my favorite!

Corioliss 1" Classic Pro styling iron- This is a new toy of mine and I know I will be getting so much use out of this this summer! My hair tends to get big & frizzy during hot, humid months and this will keep my looking smooth & shiny! I'm most impressed that my hair will stay straight until I wash it!! Even after I put my hair in a ponytail for hours, when I take it down, it's still pin straight! Though I've yet to master it, you can also do curls and flips with this as well!

Cover Girl Waterproof  Last Blast Mascaras in black- I've got to go with my two favorites! Last Blast Length and Last Blast Volume. I use these two every day and get incredible lashes! They are so long and thick, people ofen ask me if I am wear false eyelashes! They don't smudge, so it's perfect for a hot summer!

Great post! Love the UDPP in SIn because you can wear it alone too. Fix + is great to spritz on before you apply your makeup and after. and t's great for when it's hot

This is a great post! Most of the things you mentioned are my faves! Fix+ is a must for me too. But now I got the Evian spray in my purse, its too hot here and I need to spritz a couple time in my face and i feel refreshed. :]

I love high beam too! I have such nice glow when I take pictures!

I want that US palette, havent tried the Sin neither.

Hope you have a great week!

I need to try to remember to pick up Fix+ before it gets to be summer here again in Australia, it'd be great in the ridiculous heat here :)
