FOTD: My Thanksgiving Makeup Look Featuring Makeup Geek

Friday, November 29, 2013

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! I thought I'd share the makeup I wore for yesterday's foodfest. I'd been eyeing Makeup Geek eyeshadows for quite a long time, as I kept on hearing great things from all the famous YouTubers and beauty bloggers. I was attracted to the shadows' ingredients (paraben and talc-free) and the fact that the pans are almost half the price ($5.99 vs. MAC's $10) and equal to or better than MAC shadows. So I went ahead and picked up 15 shadows and a Z Palette 4U Palette.

See what I came up with!

FOTD: An Apricot/Rust Autumn Look

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I wanted to share a Face of the Day from this past weekend that I think turned out pretty well, using apricot and rust colors. I wanted to play with just one warm color that I could use just as a wash all over my lids. I also had this new Korres blush I picked up in a Hautelook haul that I was dying to try out. All the products I used for the look will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Take a look!

Review and Lip Swatches: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms

Friday, November 8, 2013

A few weeks ago, I started hearing early reviews on the new Revlon Colorburst Matte and Lacquer Balms. I'm a big fan of chubby lip crayons, so of course I was looking forward to checking some out for myself (and for blog-research purposes, of course). 

After reading/hearing preliminary reviews on the blogosphere and YouTube, I decided to pull the trigger on the Matte Balms, as you know I prefer a matte finish on the lips. After loving these, I picked up one Lacquer Balm and have my eye on another one, so my Lacquer Balm review will come soon!

Here's what I think of the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms...
