Lately, I have been sporting the foundation + lips look. The above photo was taken a few days ago, but I’ve been doing a lot of the same: foundation, light blush, lipstick, and gloss. This particular combination was YSL’s Fetish Pink Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($34.00) topped with MAC Crystal Rose Lipglass (LE). I’m hoping I get less lazy and actually DO makeup tomorrow ;)

*Edited to Add* Normally, I’d definitely pop some mascara on, but every day I start my look off going, “I’ll just go to school/grocery shopping/laze about, and then do full makeup.” See, if I put mascara on right away, then I end up trying to just refresh it in a full look, because taking it off ends up removing some of my foundation and yeah… LOL.

I finally received my nail polish haul from, oh, THREE WEEKS ago! (Sigh!!) I did quickie swatches (let’s face it, if I waited until I had time to do clean, professional, pretty ones… you’d never see them) of everything I got, so expect to see an influx of nail polish posts this coming week :) The one above is from China Glaze’s Ecollection – you know, eco-llection. I was tempted to get Recycle and Shower Together, but another gray caught my eye, and with fall/winter coming, blue just won’t be worn, I know it. So, resist, I must!

(As always, swatches are done with two coats of the polish.)

Project Revamp


If you could revamp Dior DiorShow mascara, what would you change? What would you keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?

Left to right: Sassy-Frass, No Competition, Flirt Alert, Wild Card

Benefit Full-Finish Lipstick ($18.00) in Sassy Frass, No Competition, Flirt Alert, and Wild Card are our picks for the fall lip. Sassy Frass is a fun shimmery pink raspberry color, while No Competition is a creamy browned-down plum that’s quite subdued. Flirt Alert is a bright pop of orange-based red with subtle shimmer. Wild Card is a step down in boldness from Flirt Alert, being a browner red.

Full-Finish Lipstick is a creamy formula with nine opaque shades to choose from. This formula clings to lips well, and I find they fade naturally – I don’t get the dreaded lipstick ring afterward. I love creamy lipsticks, and I’m all about pigmentation, so of course, I was excited to test these out. I did find that Sassy Frass wasn’t quite as creamy as the other three I tried. I think that’s due in part to how much shimmer is in Sassy Frass compared to the others.

My favorite shade of the four I tried was No Competition, because it’s a nice mix of fall tones without being bold or dramatic. I also liked Wild Card for its everyday red color–at least my shade of everyday red! I know some of you ladies rock Russian Red on a daily basis ;)
