Must-have beauty essentials for June 2006

The Hit List
FLARE’s essentials of the month

Instead of pinching your cheeks, dab on Lancaster Crystal Ball Magic Bubble Blush in Bubble Pink, $25. Its pretty pink formula turns to powdery dust on your skin.
The Body Shop Sun Domes in Summer Garden, $22, is so pretty you may hesitate to use it. But once you see the natural bronze results, you won’t be able to stop!
It’s just you, your beach bag and Yves Saint Laurent Palette Sensation Soleil Make-up Palette in 1, $78. This little baby has everything you need (two eyeshadows, two lipsticks and a bronzer) and it’s a stunner.
Mark (Avon’s younger, hipper sister) introduces its Hook Up system that lets you pick your two favourite beauty items (choose from eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lip gloss and lip cream) and combine them into one ready-to-tote stick. We love Scanda-lash Hook Up Mascara in Blacklash with I-sheer Creamy Eye Shadow Hook Up in Mousse, $14.
Ahhh, that’s refreshing. Burt’s Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Shampoo, 354 mL, $15, contains citrus oils to control excess oiliness and soy protein to revive lifeless locks.
Stila Gel Cheek Color, $20, comes in three juicy shades (Pink Flush is shown here) packed with summertime colour for your cheeks to shine.

Juice Beauty Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturizer, 60 mL, $63, brightens dull, dehydrated skin with organic apple, lemon and white-grape juices.
