Today’s makeup + Summer makeup wishlist

These are the products I brushed, poked and smeared on my face today to look more like a human and less like Bruce Jenner.

My makeup collection needs a desperate upgrade. My concealer is too thick and feels heavy on my face. My foundation is nearly empty, and I would like to double my skin protection by switching to a tinted moisturizer with SPF. I’m torn between NARS and Jouer. I also have my eye on the Marc Jacobs under eye concealer simply because of the cool metal tip. The bags under my eyes are not Prada, they’re Coach knock-offs.

Today’s makeup

Unfortunately, none of these products are on my face anymore because something is in my left eye and I have been clawing at my eyeball to get it out. Why.

A few standouts from today, notably my new Urban Decay Velvet Pencil I received in my newest Ipsy bag. Urban Decay eyeliners are awesome, but the texture of this liner is perfect for my needs. I don’t use liquid eyeliner and prefer a smudged eyeliner look over a cat eye. Seriously, a cat eye makes me look like a chola. Give me a plaid shirt and some lip liner and I turn into a straight up Mexican gangsta.

Today’s makeup

Shimmery nude eye and coral lips. Le swoon.

I’ve never really liked bright lips and usually opt for nude colors. I’ve noticed a lot of women with my complexion wearing coral/orange lipstick and loved how well it looked against their skin.

This is my first Revlon lipstick and definitely not my last. I’ve been using their chubby sticks, but this lipstick lasts longer on my lips and is extremely pigmented. I lick my lips constantly, so kudos to Revlon being able to create a product that can withstand the wrath of my spit.

I’m also super in love with this Benefit concealer sample. I used my Sephora discount to get the set that came with POREfessional and this product because I was intrigued by the layer of balm that surrounds the concealer.

I’ve used quite a few under eye concealers, but holy crap, I have found my favorite. It just glides. It’s nourishing. I want to have its babies. It lasted all day, and part of that is in thanks to POREfessional. I don’t know why I ever had my doubts about you, Benefit. I think it’s the packaging. I usually like the professional black or gold packaging as opposed to cute graphics. I don’t care now because Benefit has won my heart. And my money.

What did you get with the Sephora discount?
