As this autumn will be scrimp 'n save time for me, there are a few items I must buy before my fun money is strictly rationed to vacation savings:
1. La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF 60 cream
I first heard of this SPF cream from Tabitha at Bourbon and Pearls after a few people raved about it; I heeded their good advice and purchased it a few months ago. The product has worked very well for me; this summer has been consistently hot and sunny, and my skin did not burn. It also held up well underneath makeup. I'm interested to find out how the product works come autumn and winter when the air gets very dry.
2. MAC Studio Fix Powder in N4
This is one of the things I can't leave home without. I have worn this powder foundation ever since my wedding makeup trial over 5 years ago and the powder lasts for about 3-4 months. It evens out my skin nicely and I don't have to fuss with messy liquid foundation.
3. MAC lipstick
Another lipstick, another must. Especially if you have recently changed hair colours.
4. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel for Oily Sensitive Skin
This cleanser works well for me, it doesn't irritate my skin and doesn't leave behind residue.
5. Tanqueray Gin
Last but certainly not least, a trusty bottle of Tanqueray gin for my favorite no-fail after work cocktail, a gin and tonic.
