Since it is June, these are some products that I picked up a lot last month-and will probably keep using throughout the hot season!

Garnier Skin Renewal B.B. Cream
Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream SPF 15 (Medium/Deep- I purchased this as soon as it became available here in the states, and I love it! I have to agree with the many reviews I've read that have complained about the TWO color choices. When I first tried it, it looked a bit grayish, but the coverage was perfect. I'm about a NC40-42 right now and it is too light for me, but not enough to get me to stop wearing it!
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 30) Along with half of the blogosphere (or so it seemed), I couldn't wait for this TM from NARS to come in!! This has been reviewed everywhere-I know because I read most of them! I waited until Sephora had it's Chic Week (15%) sale and if I was going to take the plunge on the $42 price tag, I should wait until it was on sale. I matched myself to Annapurna simply because I had previously tried the color below it, St. Moritz, and noticed that it made me look ashy. Annapurna was a touch too dark, but I knew by summer it'd be the perfect match. (I should also note I had been using a skin lightener-an OTC hydroquinone face cream for some hyper-pigmentation I had on my cheeks). The cream didn't seem to lighten the spots a whole lot-but rather my whole face! I've stopped using all over and just apply on my dark spots. I love the coverage of the NARS TM. The way it sinks into my skin feels divine. I love the east to travel flip up tube. I don't have to use too much. It does leave a glowy-inesson the skin, so I like to dust a bit of powder over it (Usually just to my t-zone). I can see this getting used a lot this summer!
Last, but not least, Murad Hybrids Absolute Bronzing Boost SPF15: This is toted as an "oil-free facial bronzer that evens out skin tone'. A little goes a looong way! this is the perfect liquid bronzer for a glowy, sun kissed all over look! I'll usually add a drop or two to whichever TM/BB cream I'm using. This evens out the grayish color of the Garnier BB Cream, when mixed in, and is a great match for my skin!
