Re: What are you wearing today?

So I had an epiphany last night.  I have been breaking out for the past few days or so and have been trying to figure out what the issue was.  I was trying to think of what I changed in my life: diet, water consumption, started going back to the gym… etc. that would cause the breakout since I haven’t had a breakout in about a month (big achievement for me J).  Over a month ago I started using the UD Naked Foundation and stopped using my NARS Sheer Matte.  Skin started looking great – I attributed it to the fact that I stopped drinking soda and gave my mother credit for being “right” all these years about how soda (even diet) is bad for your skin and did not even think of the foundation switch.  Well… last week I started mixing my Sheer Matte with my UD Naked to make a better color match for  my skin because the UD Naked is just a little dark.  Shortly after is when my breakouts started.  DING DING DING! I think the Sheer Matte is really the culprit (sorry Mom)!   So today, I reached for a foundation that I wore religiously for 9 years but haven’t touched now in over a year… I’m liking it a lot!  It’s a perfect color match for my skin and I hope it helps calm my skin down!  Sorry for my rant – I just felt very brilliant and dumb all at the same time when I figured out  the cause of my problem! J

Re: What are you wearing today?

My mother (and grandmother) lecture me constantly on my diet coke consumption...I know it's terrible for you! I just can't seem to cut it out,'s so good in the morning! I don't feel awake without one Smiley Tongue

Re: What are you wearing today?

That's too funny! My mom always lectured me too!  I don't usually make new years resolutions because I don't usually stick to them when I do, but i decided to cut out soda completely.  Mainly because when diet coke is available, it is what I will always choose to drink and I really wanted to start drinking more water.  I haven't had any soda since prior to New Years and I am so surprised at how easy it has been.   I thought i was going to struggle with it a lot, but I haven't missed it at all.  I have been drinking more water and if I need some caffiene I will reach for tea instead. 


Hahaha love the idea about the DCA! Smiley Happy Hello, my name is Fran and I am a diet coke addict Smiley Wink






Re: What are you wearing today?

@fran11. Yay keep it up! My vice is tea, I need my two cups of warm tea in the morning to shake off the dehydration and brave the cold outside. Have you ever checked out Teavana? They are a tad expensive but good quality. They have literally tea from all over the world (African, Chinese, Japanese, English) for any flavor you crave (fruity, green, black, red, coconut, chocolate (yes, I said chocolate) or flower).

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks beautytester! It's been easy so far but I know I will reach a point where all i want is a diet coke Smiley Happy


I love warm tea too.  I have a very large stash at my desk at work - I can't live without it Smiley Happy  I have not tried Teavana but have been wanting too, but was scared of getting hooked Smiley Happy  There is a Teavana shop in a nearby mall, so maybe I will have to check it out next time I am there, it really sounds amazing! I think I will have a very time selecting what I want!!

Re: What are you wearing today?

@fran11- Can't you see it now? We're all in a circle and you would say Hello, my name is Fran and I use to be addicted to diet coke.Smiley Very Happy How funny!

Re: What are you wearing today?

hahaha! There definitely are a lot far worse things to be addicted too out there, but that would be pretty funny Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yeah definitely alot worse things! I'm proud to say that diet coke is my biggest and only addiction, well you know besides makeup of course!

Re: What are you wearing today?

@katie1724- I have to say I'm guilty of the very same thing. My diet coke in the mornings sadly to say is my breakfastSmiley Very Happy. and I can definitely say I can tell when I don't have one. Maybe we should start DCA-(diet coke anonymous)Smiley Very Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Lol, yay congrats on figuring that out!

I just went for a normal pretty look today:

- Urban Decay Sin shadow

- Sephora dark brown eyeliner

- MUFE dual powder foundation (the new one) applied with eyeshadow brush as concealer

- Clinique mascara (was planning to try Tarte mascara for the first time, but it's dried out. Boo hoo, guess I kept the deluxe sample too long).

- Buxom Big and healthy lip polish.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Whew, glad to hear that soda is safe to drink again! Smiley Happy

Now I'm really curious what ingredient in the NARS sheer matte was causing your breakouts!
