Face of the Day & Mini Reviews

Today I met a friend for coffee that I hadn't seen in such a long time. Whenever we get together after a while we just sit and talk for hours and it's so nice to catch up and chat with a good friend. I didn't do anything special with my makeup, this is pretty much my everyday look with a few new products thrown in. Lately, I haven't really been messing with eyeliner too much, but I did line my upper lashline and left my lower lashline with just some mascara. I also went for a nude lip and pink cheeks with a blush my mom has, which I love!

  • Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation in 810 Classic Ivory
    • Great coverage, lasts well throughout the day, I just wish I had gotten the lightest shade because this one is a little too dark for me.
  • Physicians Formula Conceal Rx Physicians Strength Concealer in Natural Light
    • Thick with good coverage, blends in nicely and is not cakey looking.
  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW 15 under the eyes
    • Another product with very good coverage, also has a very nice sheen to it which makes it really nice for under the eyes.
  • Clinique Super Balanced Powder Makeup in 01 Natural
    • I love this because it's a powder that you grind each time you use it. I prefer loose powder because I think it's easier to apply evenly over your entire face. This powder blends very nicely and actually layers well if you want to skip concealer and use a smaller, more dense brush to add a little extra powder over a blenmish.
  • elf Contouring blush and bronzer duo for contour
    • This is super cheap at $3 for both a bronzer and blush, both of which I love. They are super pigmented and are nice colors that suit a lot of people.
  • Clinique blush in 108 Cupid
    • I'm visiting home for a while and I found this in my moms makeup bag. I know she loves it and says she's been using it for a while and you can't even tell by looking at it in the pan. It's a medium pink with subtle sparkle and on your cheeks it looks so smooth and airbrushed.
  • Milani Brow Tint Pen in 02 Dark Brown on my brows
    • I was skeptical of this because I've never heard of a liquid pen for brows, but it's very quick and easy. You do have to use a spooly or brush to make sure it's blended, though.
  • Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in 07 intense ivy
    • This was part of a free gift with purchase and I LOVE this. After using it a couple of times I looked to see what it was called and I thought the name "quickliner" fit it perfectly. For someone like me who has trouble with all types of eyeliner on the top lashline, this is SO easy.
  • 2 coats of Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara in black on the top lashes
    • Another gift with purchase, it's nice, I like it, especially after 2 coats, but I wouldn't buy the full size.
  • Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in Black
    • Just got this and am really liking it so far.
  • Flower Beauty Nude Lipstick (No idea of the name, it's in the black packaging, though!)
    • I really like the color and it's opaque. I have trouble finding nude lipcolors that are opaque on their own without using a little foundation over my lips first. What I don't like about it is that it's not the creamiest lipstick, you can feel gritty pieces in it when you apply it and it just isn't as smooth as I'd like.
  • Estee Lauder lipgloss in 46 Sun Burst
    • This gloss smooths out the lipstick really nicely. It's a peachy-nude color with subtle sparkle.

Look out for full reviews on a couple of these products in the future!
