Channeling Summer with the DIBS Beauty Desert Island Duo

It always feel like summer with the DIBS Beauty Desert Island Duo.

One of my favorite influencers, Courtney Shields, launched her own beauty brand last September, and over the past four months, I have absolutely fallen in love with the blush and bronzer stick.

It is one of the best cream formulas I have every tried, and you all know how much I love creams. They are emollient and easy to blend but never blend away, making them perfect for both no-makeup makeup looks or full glam looks.

The dewy finish is everything, especially for dry to normal skin types. No highlighter is necessary.

I own Shade 4, which includes ‘Not So Basic’—a bright, warm coral—and ‘Iced Chai’—a warm terracotta bronze. It’s perfect for a summery, sunkissed glow, but I definitely want to try more colors. 

These duos are $32, and for me, they are completely worth the money. It will especially be a must have for travel.

Pro tip: Use the stick on your eyes and lips too for a monochromatic look.
