Summer Complexion with Rock & Republic


The quality of Rock & Republic Cosmetics is absolutely amazing.
The sleek packaging really catches the eye, and then you swatch the product, and fall instantly in love with everything!







Tinted Primer- SPF20
Shade: Audrey
$46
  • Mousse texture
  • Matte finish
  • Silicone base
  • Caffeine infused for improved circulation
  • Contains Vitamin E to restore the skins balance
  • Oil absorbing with skin brightening properties
  • Provides sheer coverage

I love this mousse-like texture.
It makes your skin look and feel like velvet!






Tinted Illuminizer
Shade: Jezebel
$48
  • Silky, smooth, moisturizing texture
  • Dewy, luminous finish
  • Water based
  • Contains anti-inflammatory properties
  • Contains Vitamin E to restore skins balance
  • Oil absorbing with light diffusing polymers
  • Provides medium coverage


The camera doesn't catch the amazing illumination that is present in person.
This gives your skin a healthy, beautiful glow.
It doesn't look greasy at all, just brightens the skin with a pretty sheen.
The coverage is light-medium, in my opinion- definitely buildable.
This is perfect for summer; who wants a full-coverage, heavy foundation in the summer?





Pressed Blush
Shade: Kinky
$40
  • Smooth, silky texture
  • Available in three finishes: matte, shimmer and transluent
  • Can be used to highlight or accent


I am so bummed that my camera doesn't portray the vibrancy of this shade.
It's a true hot pink!


I'll admit, at first, I was a little hesitant to put such a bright shade on my cheeks.
But when applied, it can be sheer or it can build to it's true hue.
It's such a pretty pink shade on the cheeks!







Eye Colour
Shades: Ammo (shimmery brown) & Affair (shimmery champagne)
$28
  • Available in three finishes: matte, satin or shimmer
  • Long wearing, formulated for easy application
  • Richly pigmented
  • Fine jet-milled powder
  • Full range of shades

Gel Eye Liner
Shade: Bound
$24
Gel Eye Liner
  • Gel, cream texture
  • Deeply pigmented
  • Long wearing
The shadows feel like soft silk!
They are HIGHLY pigmented, and these shades are the perfect neutrals to wear everyday.
Although the gel liner is a little harder in texture (than other gel liners), the staying power is great and this color is the perfect brown for summer!

Lip Gloss
Shades: Drama Queen & Imposter
$26
  • Ultra high gloss finish
  • Vitamin A for skin cell renewal
  • Vitamin E for conditioning
  • Perfect consistency and texture
  • Can be layered to be sheer or bold
These glosses are so pigmented and gorgeous.
I admit, they are a little sticky, but it helps stay on longer.


Top: Drama Queen
Bottom: Imposter


Left: Drama Queen
Right: Imposter
