The Notes: Summer Essentials

Can I say that summer is here now? Well after looking outside to gloomy London, it's not here but it is warm and I'm going to embrace that as much as I can. I've been trying out a lot of new products recently so they will be popping up on here in the next few weeks.
Summer is here but NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla is not. It's sold out everywhere in London, trust me, I've rang pretty much every NARS counter. I've tried it out twice and that's enough to convince me I need it. It's the creamiest concealer out there, which is perfect for both under eyes and blemishes. I'm hoping to get my hands on that so I can pair it with lots of mascara, Volume Million Lashes, which really does give you volume, alongside the Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight. I want it, I need it and I will get it. But ยฃ34 for a highlighter? I'll step away from that extra cookie each week and save my pennies. I'm looking forward to this low key, but I need a little colour on my face so Clarins Liquid Bronze is still keeping me from looking like a ghost. You can read my full review of it here. To finish off the look, I've been testing out Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist which has been adding a glow to my skin I didn't think was achievable. I've said goodbye to Caudalie Beauty Elixir and hello to this.
As I'm not going anywhere near a beach soon, I've turned to Bumble & Bumble for their Surf Kit. I'll post a full review of the shampoo and conditioner this week but oh man, I'm going to be shouting from the rooftops about this stuff! Ojon is a brand I often dip my toes into so I've been eyeing up the Rare Blend Protecting Treatment. I need everything to help my locks stay in good condition and so far I've read good things.
To finish it all off, I've just got my hands on Ray-Ban Wayfarer in Tortoiseshell. I've only been wanting them for a good two years now, so at any opportunity I've been whipping them out to make the most of the sunshine.

What is your summer essential?
