Spring / Summer Must-haves | AD – GIFTED

Hello Beaut!
I have been so looking forward to showing you my Spring / Summer must haves! I personally loveee to read this style of a blog as it opens me up to new ideas and brands, I hope this helps you in some way, gives you inspo!

Vita Liberata Tan

if you follow me on Instagram you will know… your girl over here isn’t the best at applying fake tan! I would love to be a pro, but I’m really not and somehow anyways make the job so much harder than it needs to be. That is until I tried Vita Liberata 2 – 3-week tan in the shade medium & Mitt.

This tan is honestly a game-changer for me, I don’t get any streaks or dark hands! You DON’T moisturise prior to putting the tan on which is amazing normally you have to do your dry patches and then that makes my tan go all patchy and just not great.

Liberata Tan and mit

It’s so fast at absorbing into my skin so none of that sticky arms flapping about waiting for it to dry. It gives you an instant natural-looking bronze colour which then develops into a lovely deep tan that lasts up to 4xs longer than other tans down to its special PH technology!

It has no smell!! I don’t mind the smell of tan but I know some people can’t stand it, this one has no smell which is a bonus!
72 hours of hydrated skin with its special moisture-locking technology!
You can build the colour up to how you like it! It says to apply 3 times over the course of 12 – 24 hours washing with just water in between each layer, I applied two layers and loved the way my skin looked!

The Self Tanning Mitt is amazing quality! It helps me get a streak-free tan and evenly spreads the product on my skin. It also washes up really well and doesn’t go dry or crunchy like other mitts I have used!
I honestly am so glad I’ve found this tan! I will be wearing it again in time for my holidays at the end of June!!

Kiss Nails – Gel Fantasy

You may have seen my post about the Impress Press on nails I posted recently, these are very similar but different at the same time!

Firstly, their designs are just beautiful there very me! These Gel Fantasy are more designed for a false nail look, something with length whereas the Impress Press on are designed to be more of a natural shorter style.

They come with glue or the sticky tabs like the impress this is genius!
What I like to do is apply the sticky tabs first time round a then next I want to wear them pull off the sticky tabs and use the glue provided, so I’m getting multiple wears out of one set! I have found online you can get sheets of these adhesive tabs so I’m going to order them and try them out, I much prefer using them then glue, I always end up sticking my fingers together and the glue leaves a coating on the nails so you can’t wear them again. Were as the tabs just peel off.


The tabs come numbered which makes things so helpful. You find the size nail you want and then there’s a small number that tells you what sticky tab fits that nail! These last a good 5 days + on me, it’s been hard to give it a true length of time as I’ve pulled them off to do house renovations!

Highly recommend these, I get so many compliments when I wear them. There perfect to jazz up any outfits and getting that salon look from home.

Stila Mini Liquid Lipstick – Patina

Stila is one of my favourite brands for makeup, I’ve been lucky enough to go to some of their launch events for new products, I have never had the chance to try there Stay all day liquid lipsticks before so when love indulge kindly sent out this mini from part of the My Bare Lady set in the shade Patina I was so excited to try!

They really do live up to the hype, they stay on all day with no dryness. One of my pet hates about liquid lipstick is when they have been on your lips for a little while and they start to crumble up and crack… yeah, you don’t get this with Stila!

I love that their minis! Perfect for your handbag/purse.
The colour is lush my perfect go to and looks lovely with S/S outfits.
