Friday Face #8

Happy Friday to everyone! So sorry this edition of "Friday Face" is up late! I have a lot of new products to share with you all throughout the upcoming weeks and I'm super excited to give you some detailed reviews!



Face

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Foundation (Fair Sand): I resorted to buying the Amazonian Clay foundation since the Ivory shade in the Maracuja foundation never came in stock. I've been wearing this for over a week now and I'm still on the fence about it. It feels amazing on the skin but I feel that it lacks in the coverage department? Especially once the day is over, I notice most of my freckles showing through. My BM powder foundation stays flawless all day, the only problem I notice with it is you can see where I'm dry which is why I wanted to try a healthy liquid/cream product.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Creaseless Concealer (Fair): I'm really enjoying this concealer, although I don't think it's a must have. It's very creamy and easy to apply. I think I'm struggling with the same problem as the foundation though, it wears off by the end of the day, especially under my eyes. Not a game changer for me currently.

Mally Evercolor Poreless Face Defender: I've lusted after this product for ages! It finally went on sale at ULTA for their 21 Days of Beauty clearance sale. I purchased it for $25 (originally $40) and it works really nicely with my all powder products. For example, when I wear all Bare Minerals (powder) it definitely tones down the sometimes "overly" powdery look I can get under my eyes and around my mouth where I'm dry. When I use it with all of my cream products to set everything, I'm not exactly impressed with it. I'd rather just set everything with a translucent powder.

Blush & Bronzer

Tarte Airblush in (Shimmering Poppy): I've been so in love with this blush lately! As you can probably tell, I've been trying out a lot of new Tarte products and I have to say, this blush has been my favorite. It's funny because I've never heard of this blush before?! I was randomly browsing the blush section and stumbled upon it. The Poppy shade immediately stood out to me so I threw it in my shopping cart, not expecting much. I was so surprised when I applied it and saw how amazingly it blended into my skin. It also doesn't apply heavily so you can build it up. I'd highly recommend trying these!

Tarte Cream-to-Powder Bronzer (Globe Trekker): We all know I've been loving this bronzer. It's great for contouring and also gives you a natural hint of color. Not too light and not too dark!

Eyes

Tarte Amazonian Clay Gel Liner (Black): I haven't whipped out any gel liner in a long time. Today I was feeling a cat eye so I reached for my Tarte gel liner, which I've loved for a couple years now. It glides on so smoothly and is highly pigmented!

Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows ("Bronze Have More Fun"/"Bikini-Tini"): I love the consistency of these cream shadows. They apply extremely easy and feel like butta! However, I do have to say the color payoff isn't what you'd expect for a $20 cream shadow. They work best as bases for powder shadows!

Benefit "They're REAL!" Mascara: This is my all-time FAVORITE mascara! I was so fortunate to be chosen as a Benefit hostess for a campaign they're currently doing for "They're REAL!". Photos will be up on Sunday ;)

Lips

L'oreal La Laque (Never Lacq-ing): I was so excited to try these but unfortunately I haven't been a huge fan. They are much more pigmented than expected, which is good I suppose. But the shine factor just isn't there for me. They're exactly like a regular creamy lipstick.

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Dual Lipgloss (discontinued): I got this lipgloss in a kit back in the summertime. I love the neutral pink shades! The light pink side is definitely my favorite and is what I used to top off the L'oreal lippy ;)

The Look

What are you wearing this Friday? :)

Until next time...

  4. To stay away from brutal impacts of UV beams onto skin, use of SPF gets to be distinctly important to shrivel the odds of wrinkles to show up as a final product. Consistent utilization of facial organs created lasting wrinkles as well, similar to crow's feet and temple lines.anti aging products
