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?

Today I wore a full face of Vera Vang makeup from Kohls...and I dont like any of it. >_<

 

1. Simply Vera Vang Volume Enhancing Mascara (too clumpy, $18.50)

2. Vera Wang Transforming Shadow Duo in 403 and 404 (pigmented enough...but very cheap quality...not smooth, silky, buttery...$19.50)

3. Vera Wang Illuminating Powder Blush in 314(pigmented enough but the powder is such cheap quality, $19.50)

4. Vera Wang Smoothing Lipcolor in 709 (good pigment, but dont like taste/smell,$18.50)

5.Vera Wang Smooth Shine Lipgloss in 802 (sheer, sticky, awful bitter taste,$18.50)

6.Vera Wang Illuminating Pressed Powder in 301(this is the lightest shade they have, and it was a super dark orange on me, zero coverage, hated the cheap powder on me, $32.50)

7. Vera Wang Soothing Balm(honey colored thick oil, tested on hand, never absorbs, looks oily/shiny/thick, $18.50)

 

And out of ALL of this that I tried...I didnt like *anything*. The quality is very disappointing, I would have better luck at the drugstore these days, and the prices!!!! With these prices, I can shop at Sephora and get items that I know I love and will use.

 

Big thumbs down for the entire line.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Today's likely going to be pretty simple, given the fact that it's already sunny out and going to be at least 80, so comfort is what this pregnant woman is going for!

 

Supergoop Save Face AM moisturizer SPF 35+

Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30

YSL Touch Eclat

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder (t-zone)

Nars the Multiple in Orgasm (best cream blush I've ever tried, hands down.  Just enough color.)

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Nude Beach

Clinique High Impact Mascara

Clinique Moisturizing Balm Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa

Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Bonfire

 

Hmm...that doesn't LOOK simple, but it's actually a pretty bare no-makeup look.  Assuming I wear more than the TM today and lip gloss.  I'm suffering from insomnia at this point.

Re: What are you wearing today?

LIPS

 

Benefit Dandelion Ultra Plush Gloss (Deluxe sample - this smells/tastes AMAZING!)

 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Decided to further test a cream formula shadow from Shu Uemura.  To be honest, it's not very good as a primer for the lids but works better using it with eye primer and gives a lovely shimmery effect.  The darker color (the purple) I bought was a bit of a disappointment (was expecting more of the blueish tone and ease of use)  but the lighter ones were nice.  Anyway, here's today's look:

 

UDPP in Sin

shu uemura creamy eye shadow p white 908

shu uemura p blue 611

shu uemura p soft blue 645

shu uemura ir black 985

shu uemura air eye shadow trio - metallic light sky blue (if this ever comes close to hitting the pan, I might be asking for dupes)

shu uemura mascara basic

 

YSL creme de blush in 1 velvety peach

Dr. Jart Premium BB

NARS Lip Gloss in Sweet Revenge

did up my eye makeup a little, but probably going to return the mascara.  I wasn't sure if that was what was making my eyes itch, but now that I've put it on again, I'm pretty sure it is.  I'll just return it at Nordstrom and head to Sephora or Ulta for the Buxom Amplified Lash mascara.

BITE 001 LE JANUARY

 i112152mage.jpg

Re: What are you wearing today?

Loving both lips, but the January 001 has a tad more berry in it, and you know how much I love it when you wear even a trace of berry in your lipstick, as it lights up your entire face. Nonetheless, I'm loving both shades on your; they are elegant, sophisticated and look gorgeous with the toned down eye, and fresh-faced complexion! You look hot! Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you, ballerina!  I do love them both.  Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Hmm January is just a smidge darker but I like both! You look so sophisticated with these lip colors Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks SD!  I aim to be classy (but don't always succeed) LOL.

Re: What are you wearing today?

OMG I HAVE THAT LIP DUO! <3 I always have a problem with bite lippies, I feel like they go all over my  face when I apply them on. I'm going to try a brush next time. GOD. Seriously, this lip shade is just perfect for you, I love how it looks against your beautiful skin tone. And I just knew - KNEW- you were using almeria. I didn't have to read, it just looked. Oh dear. *gushing*

Re: What are you wearing today?

LOL, yes, I think Almeria is the perfect blush to go with these kind of lip colors!  Thanks, blackwhiskey!

 

I really love the colors BITE does, but I'm not gonna lie, I find their lipsticks to have this weird, sticky/tacky quality  when I apply.  I've never bothered to look, but I wonder if they have beeswax or something in them... once the product warms up on my lips the feeling goes away, but it makes it really hard to go on evenly during application.  

Re: What are you wearing today?

Very nice! I love both shades on you Smiley Happy 

 

i compared the two as well- I'll add a photo of Scarley because I think the difference is a bit more noticeable on me. You can really see how 001 is more red on you! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you, lachaton!  

 

Yes, I definitely see a difference more on you than on me.  My lips are very darkly pigmented naturally, so dark lippies just end up looking generically dark on me (I lose all nuance?).  One thing I have noticed after wearing it for a few hours, 001 seems to be more sheer on my lips than Scarlet was.  I can't explain it, because I used 4 or 5 swipes to get even coverage, but when I look in the mirror I can still see my natural pigment shining through underneath.  So I guess it's not totally opaque?

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love them both!  I think I like Scarlet more....

 

Looking lovely as usual Mocha.
