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.





From left to right: Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in 4.0, Benefit The POREfessional, Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in 5, Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Liner in Black Velvet, OFRA Eyebrow Pencil in Universal, NARS Pro-Prime Eyeshadow Base, Maybelline Rocket Mascara, Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, NYX Butter Gloss in 02 Eclair, Benefit Fake Up Concealer, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso, Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder

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

Shimmery nude eye and coral lips. Le swoon.




From left to right: Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in 4.0, Benefit POREfessional, NARS Pro-Prime Eyeshadow Base, Arbonne Mascara, Anastasia Brow Gel, Starlooks Eyeliner in Obsidian, Benefit Fake Up Concealer in 02 Medium, Revlon Lipstick in Coralberry, Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

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?

Sephora wishlist

If you’re a makeup obsessed Sephora VIB like me, then you must have totally freaked out when you received the VIB 15% off early access event email. I have a handsome list of products I have been wanting to smear on my face, so best believe I am using this discount.

Sephora Needs

From left to right:
Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
Benefit The POREfessional
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation
Tarte Airbuki Foundation Brush

I tried a sample of the Soy Face Cleanser and was impressed by how much makeup it removed even after I had used eye makeup remover and a makeup wipe. It didn’t dry out my face, and had a light cucumber scent.

The POREfessional, Tarte foundation and brush and Too Faced mascara have been highly recommended on YouTube, so naturally, I’m curious.

If you’re a VIB and haven’t received the email, use the code VIBTICKET on online purchases between April 3 – April 11, 2014.
