What are you wearing today?

What makeup is everyone wearing today?

 

Today I am wearing:

 

1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne

2. Benefit Coralista blush

3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer

4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm

5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454

6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP

 

and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50

 

So c'mon now...confess!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yesterday's look.  I blended the lip liner, so I did not notice until I saw the pictures that the lines looked harsh.  Oh well.  I also had slight creasing on my shadows, so I am going to try a different eye primer on the next day I wear makeup.

New Items (will look up colors later if people are curious)

Julep Bronzer- I have been going out of my way to purchase kits with Julep makeup lately, and I am unsure why.  This color was decent, but the product had a lot of fallout.  It is very pigmented though, so even with the wasted product from fallout, this will last a long time.

Kevyn Aucoin Blush- Holy pigmentation, Batman.  This is the most pigmented blush I've ever tried.  I barely put any on and looked like a straight up clown.  There was no fallout, and the powder feels very nice.  It would probably look amazing on darker skin.  I have to decide whether to TSB it or learn to apply it very, very, very lightly.  It really is beautiful and I own nothing else from the brand, so I would hate to see it go.

Laura Geller Eyeshadow- I generally like her shadow, but I am not certain I liked this one.  It took forever to get the product out.  Once I was able to break the seal (so to speak) it was fallout central.  I applied it last, so I did not get to see how it looked on its own.  I will ensure I apply it first next time I try it.

By Terry Eyeshadow- At $40 for a single shadow (I got it on sale, so I did not pay that, thankfully), I expected more.  It was not as pigmented as I would have liked and did not blend well with the other shadows.  I will give it another shot though.

Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Lovecraft- The formula was lovely.  I adore the color.  It lasted a long time.  The picture was post eating and after hours of application.

Marc Jacobs Highliner Brown- This glides on like no eyeliner I've ever seen.  The formula is amazingly smooth and easy to apply.  I got great lines without streaks or patchiness on my first pass.  I did not even mind the micro glitter in the formula and thought the color was very pretty.  Basically, I'm in love.

 

Re: What are you wearing today?

that's the lolita lip, right? It looks like it ..I actually tried that primer and it worked for me! Missed seeing your face here!  By the way, the stck next to the lancome primer, is that the marc jacobs twinklepop? 

Re: What are you wearing today?

This shade is Lovecraft.  I have Lolita (all 12 that went on sale actually and have only tried 2 so far).  I will get to the other 10 at some point.  Are you referring to the NARS primer?  It worked on me for the most part, but it has had five misses so far; two with cheap shadows, two with mid range shadows and this one that mixed three mid range and one high end together.  Five misses out of a bunch is not bad, I guess.  

 

I am missing the days when I thought this was a miracle product though.  It is still better than anything else I've tried sadly, so I need to try more brands.  I have one of the Lauras in my stockpiles.  I cannot remember if it is Geller or Mercier or both, but I will try that next.  That is Marc Jacobs Highliner in brown.  It was a recent 100 point perk, and I loved it.  I will probably buy the full size when it is gone (if it is ever gone).  That reminds me I forgot to section off a mini review for my new items.  Editing the original post now to add that.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yeah, the nar, I thought it was good but I am not a fan of the applicator so I am not going to buy it. I still need to try the TF one again, I think I remember it being good again. My crease gets so oily, and I always sweat cause of the texas heat. :\ I tried the original ud again and I checked and I see no grease and it's the end of the day here. I have so many tiny tubes of it so I don't have to buy another one.. The concrete minerals creased when i used shimmery shadows.. I believe I had mentioned that one to you. I know limecrime has one and I'm trying to think of others but nothing comes to mind at the moment. I liked MJ highliners at first but I didn't even get to finish my black one and it dried out - and yes, I always had the cap on! I tried the twinklepop the other day, a coppery one called Leyla or something.. so beautiful! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love Lovecraft, and I love it on you! It compliments you perfectly. You are right, the formula is so nice and comfortable, and lasts forever. The new ones are not that good. I had a chance to try some of them ( some are the same color as Painted lipsticks I own ), and most of them are just so dry, patchy, hard to even get on your lips, and terrible to wear. I really don't understand why she discontinued her Painted Love line. It was perfect. Even packaging is better. Of course, this is just my opinion. I'm sure not all of the new lipsticks are bad. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks.  It is weird that makeup companies sometimes mess with products that aren't broken.  At least keep them both on the market, so consumers can have a choice rather than assuming everyone will love the new formula.  I haven't tried her new lipsticks yet, but I heard the caps do not stay on.  That is reason enough for me not to buy it.  I can only imagine the mess that would make and the wasted product if the cap came off in my bag.  

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks for the review on the ByTerry shadow. I had been looking at those on SpaceNK (presumably where you got it? I think they were on sale for $10) and never ended up pulling the trigger.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I think I did get a $10 one.  They had other colors for more expensive prices, I think.  Of course, I could be thinking of Beautybar, where they were also being sold.  Anyway, I regret the purchase so far.  Hopefully,it works out better when I try it again.

Re: What are you wearing today?

 

Today's look is zero makeup. Smiley Happy I'll put on my UD naked skin illuminating bb cream later today because we are going to the LO to a sand carving festival at the local children's museum. (It'll give me a little coverage and some SPF.) Sorry I haven't posted all week; my baby dog (ok, she's 7, but she's our baby dog) seems to have suffered an embolism in her back and lost control/feeling in her hind leg last Sunday. She's improving a little bit each day, but it's been a stressful, anxious week and we are still not sure how well she will recover.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Aw Smiley Sad I'm sorry about your doggie, I hope she gets better! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

You have such nice skin, armybeauty! I like having at least one makeup free day each week to give my skin a little break. Smiley Happy

<3, Randee

Re: What are you wearing today?

Agreed! And I should do that! I actually did that yesterday, but that was because I wayyyy over slept! Smiley Wink And poor doggie! I really hope she makes a full recovery! I love dogs! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Hope your baby feels better soon!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Sorry about your dog.  I hope she feels better soon.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I hope your dog continues to recover!  It's so stressful when our pets are sick.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Sending good vibes to you and your pup.
