LIPS: Clinique Dramatically Different Lipstick in Canoodle

Any new or old favorites discovered?
New—I received ColourPop Flutter By today, and I think it could very well become my new favorite palette! I immediately removed the glitter shade and replaced it with the plum shade called Flow from CP’s Good Sport palette, which I never use. It makes a great addition to the Flutter By shades.
Old—It‘s been a long time since I used Clinique’s Dramatically Different Lipstick in Canoodle, and I had forgotten what a great nude shade it is. It’ll definitely go into regular rotation.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?
ColourPop Flutter By palette!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I used my Naked 2 – Half Baked on the lid, with Snakebite on the lower lid and Chopper in the crease for a suble (for me!) graduated gold look. I paired it with two lipsticks – Goldmine by EA with Maybelline’s Copper Spark on top.

Any new or old favorites discovered?:
I find that I am not really ‘discovering’ old favourites, but through rotating my palettes, I am using familiar shades in a different position on the eye, or in conjunction with new combinations from other palettes.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?
I haven’t planned anything, I will just see where my fancy takes me.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral undertone, combo skin

Look you loved this week?: I put together my version of the new Natasha Denona Love palette with my singles and have loved the pink-red-purple combos I have created. Plus, it saves me $$$

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Eyeshadow singles! Also still use the heck out of the Anastasia x Nicole Guerriero highlighting palette, I think it’s the best highlighting palette Anastasia released. Also loving the $1.88 foundation drops from AOA Studio on thanks to Taylor Wynn’s YT channel, they are gorgeous on the skin

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: My new Strobe cosmetics Creepy Cute palette and more of the DIY Love palette!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light, neutalish, grey-green eyes, originally dark brown hair at the moment it’s redish with a strange almost black and silver out growth. Need to decide what colour I want now.

Look you loved this week?: I don’t think I really loved any of them, I’m not inspired regarding my eyes as they ares so hooded no one can see the lids anyway. 🙁 I keep liking Viseart Neutral Mattes and use it almost every day with anything shimmery on the mobile lid, in the hope it will somehow show that I have one.
I have liked It Cosmetics CC+ instead of foundation, By Terry Setting Powder, Benefit Dandelion blush, CT Browlift in Supermodel all week, Supermodel is my absolute favourite for my brows, and I need to buy a new one, but CT web site wasn’t cooperating with me. Very odd!
Oh, forgot, Guerlaine Meteorites have been on my face since I bought it late last year.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Yes. Pat McGrath Luxtrace lipstick in Major Red, I’ve had it for quite some time and didn’t like the feeling of it. this week I noticed that the feeling of a heavy lipstick was gone in minutes and it felt like nothing on the lips, wasn’t drying, turned almost satin after some time and lasted most of the day, leaving a stain that is a bit hard to remove (sorry for the almost review 🙂 ). I’ve used it four days the last week.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I got a lipstick from Haus in the mail, finally I look forward to using it, it’s a very shimmery red, I also got Hourglass Confession lipstick in Secretly in my Beautylish Luckybag, it’s gorgeous and I want to use it as well this coming week.
I just have to have a red lips week, something I don’t mind at all.
I’ll let everyone know what else I got from Beautylish in the nest Free For Haul.

Is the Haus lipstick Burlesque Red Sparkle? I put it on my Christmas list, but it was sold out by the time my mom got on the site. I might have to buy it sometime!

Yes it is.
I really like it so much, I have a weakness for sparkly lips 🙂
I can feel the sparkles if I press my lips together, I don’t mind that though.
It lasts like all of the creamy types of lipsticks on my lips.
I like it so much I put in an order of a gloss and lipliner pencil.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with warm undertones – NC23 ish
Look you loved this week?: From MAC Desert Lightning palette – middle row but Brun instead of Is It The Beat?, MAC Seduced At Sea blush, Natural Born Leader + Sweet Mamastarrr lipstick, I can’t remember the name of the highlighter and I did a shimmer beigey brown on the lower waterline and lash
Any new or old favorites discovered?: All the above for my look
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: A Tom Ford quad – not sure which yet.
