Benefit BeneBalm: I am a huge fan of tinted lip balms and have mentioned my love of BeneBalm previously on the blog. It adds a shiny tint to the lips that is perfect for a natural look and keeps your lips feeling oh-so-soft. It costs about 3x more than I normally spend on a lip balm, but I'm on my second tube and have never regretted the cost.
Mally Mascara: While I like what is inside the tube, the real reason that Mally is my summertime go-to mascara is because the tube itself is wonderful. The silver glitter detail adds a bit of glamour to my morning and makes the quick swipe of mascara across my eyelashes feel like something special. The polka dots on the BeneBalm tube inspire the same reaction and it starts the day off on a positive note. The Mally mascara arrived in a Birchbox a few months ago, but as far as I can tell, this tube design is no longer available. However, I know that there are plenty of other brightly colored tubes of mascara out there, so it shouldn't be too hard to find one to brighten up your morning!
