nude_IMG.jpgFoundations are the best product for creating a more even, flawless complexion. With so many formulations on the market these days, we care most about finding the ones that feel lightweight but give us the coverage we desire. Now that we’re moving into the warm-weather months, these requirements also need to be teamed up with long-lasting finishes that won’t melt away. The following picks are some of our favorites, and for you recessionistas, all cost less than $40.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10 provides a natural-looking, semi-matte finish on normal/combination to oily skin and stays fresh-looking for up to 15 hours.

tresemme 24 hour body foaming mousse.jpg

 

 

Hair that is full of volume is on every woman’s beauty wish list these days (think more Victoria’s Secret model, less 80s ‘Dynasty’ character). Tresemme 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse will make it easier to achieve the full body you crave thanks to its Volume Control Complex. This formula builds body, leaving hair looking soft and feeling light. Applied to damp hair, it works with heat styling tools to maintain optimal body and bounce. $4.99, walgreens.com

Many nail colors have been launched for the Summer season, and while we love the bright neons and (surprising) blue and purple hues, we couldn’t help but fall in love with the new Essie Summer 2009 Collection. We imagine our tips and toes will be quite happy in these shades of pinks and corals…

Gillette Venus Embrace is the best razor for women we have used in some time. Sure, we have others we like, but this one is the absolute best. Its five blades deliver the closest, smoothest shave without leaving our legs with nicks, cuts or razor burn, and comes with a convenient in-shower holder for extra refills- our inner neat freak can appreciate that fabulous detail. $12.99, drugstore.com

If we could create what an island getaway would smell like, it would be this: Michael Kors Island Bermuda. This limited-edition scent is vibrant with the scents of freesia, hibiscus, tropical passion flowers, and complimented by soft scents of ceder and driftwood. It’s fresh, inviting, and oh-so office friendly. So while we may not venture to the islands this Summer, we can at least imagine what it would smell like. $62, sephora.com
