Turns out you can beat the heat this summer. Our limited edition Ready, Set, Summer Kits are curated product trios designed to set makeup for warmer days. A total seasonal steal, they retail for $50 with values of $80-$90 each.
We invited three summer-loving social media stars to try out our Ready, Set, Summer Kits and to share the results with us.
When Stephanie hits the beach, she loves long and active days that slide straight into sunset cocktails. It was the perfect scenario to test our Ready, Set, Outlast Kit for staying power.
Featuring Anti-Aging Primer for a nourishing base, Perfect Setting Powder (in your choice of Light or Deep) to set or touch up on the go, and our NEW High Performance Setting Spray for 24-hour staying power, the Ready, Set, Outlast Kit invites you to set it and forget it.
Stephanie took our invitation literally, and after a day of surf and sun—even snorkeling!—she reports her face was “still poppin’!”
Here’s what she had to say:
How do your beauty needs change in the summer?
During the summer months, I tend to be out and about in the sun a lot, so I try to make sure that my skin stays hydrated to avoid drying out.
What’s your best advice on setting makeup for the summer months?
Summer in Texas is quite warm! But that certainly doesn’t mean my glam goes down any notches. I keep my beauty looks intact with a great primer and lots of setting spray.
Tell us about the look you created using the Ready, Set, Outlast Kit.
I took the kit on a beach vacation to Jamaica, so the look I created was fun and perfect for summer. I set my face with Anti-Aging Primer and then used my favorite highlighters and bold colors to make my face pop! When I was finished, I set my face using the translucent Perfect Setting Powder in Deep, followed by the High Performance Setting Spray.
What were your thoughts on each of the products in the Ready, Set, Outlast Kit?
I love the Anti-Aging Primer—it is so rich and perfect for my skin. The fact that it is anti-aging is also a huge plus. The Perfect Setting Powders are great because they are lightweight. I was worried that the Deep option, which I used, might be too heavy on my face. But it is truly translucent—just what I need for the summer. I always set my face with a setting spray, so I have a great collection of products. But I really enjoyed using this High Performance Setting Spray. No scent, super lightweight, and it works! I went snorkeling, swam in the ocean, laid out in the sun, and sweat, and my face is still poppin’. Ha!
Summer vacation! Where, when, and with whom?!
This is my favorite time of year! I did a girls’ trip to Cabo to kick off the season and now I’m in Jamaica with my hubby soaking up the sun! We love the beach.

Metallic eyeliner and highlight galore. Glow, baby!
