Is it just me or is there another “revolutionary” new makeup product introduced every freaking day?! Just walking into Ulta or Sephora (or even Walgreens!) sends many chicas into fits of hysteria, reaching for the nearest brown bag to regulate their breathing. It’s all so overwhelming.
So how can you know which product – among the sea of thousands – is the best? Which does what you need it to do? Which ones are worth the extra money? Let me help. I don’t know every beauty product out there, but I’ve tested a lot of them and I’ll let you know which are worth the money and which are not.

What it is: Korres Bronze & Protect Set featuring Watermelon Tinted Moisturizer in 1 Light Sand, Silicone-Free Primer & Monoi Oil Bronzer in 01 Sunglow Light.
Why this should be in your bag: Summer for me is all about bronzed beauties with flawless skin. As I’ve said before, I’m pale myself, but I love basking in the sun and getting a bit of a glow (no sunburns though!). This set provides you with three essentials for gorgeous summer skin: a primer, a tinted moisturizer and a bronzer! Together, these three are a skin army, tackling all of the elements so your skin remains smooth and shine-free throughout the day.
How to use it: First step is to start with a freshly cleansed face and apply the primer. I love the texture of this; silicone primers tend to be heavy and cause breakouts but this is light while still doing the same job. Next, swipe on the Watermelon tinted moisturizer. I find this stuff sets quickly, so don’t dawdle during application. Feel free to use a makeup sponge to blend this, although use a lighter hand than you would with liquid foundation. The coverage should end up being sheer. Lastly, swirl a big bronzer or powder brush in the Monoi Oil Bronzer and dust on your face, focusing on the cheeks, nose and forehead!
Spend the cash or simply pass? Korres is a rock-solid brand and this set is a STEAL! For $29.50, you get these three awesome products, while the Watermelon Tinted Moisturizer or Monoi Oil Bronzer will both run you $28 each! Clearly, this is a huge SPEND. With this set, you will be all set for any summer day and can use all the products throughout the winter season, just go light on the bronzer!
