Face of the Day


I am really loving L’oreal’s True Match Liquid Foundation ($8 at Target)! The coverage is medium, but it looks natural, and it lasts all day long. I wore it from 8 a.m. yesterday morning until 8 p.m. and there was barely any fading.  I set it with bareMinerals foundation, which may have helped it stay matte, and I didn’t notice any oily spots all day.

I used both e.l.f.’s mineral eyeshadow (full review to come) as well as my Urban Decay’s Naked 1 palette, and both of them have been great in combination with Urban Decay’s eye primer. There has been no creasing or fading whatsoever.

    My friend got me Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy for my birthday, and I’m so happy I decided to ask for it. (We don’t do the surprise gift thing; we just straight up ask what the other person wants for Christmas and birthdays. :P) The color is super flattering on me and it really does hang on for hours.

    The foundation looks great on you!

      I just looked it up real quick. Is the Tarte’s actually as long lasting as they say?

        Well, it was for me. I put my makeup on around 3 pm, and when I got home from work at 3 am, there was still color on my cheeks.

      I haven’t tried it, but I don’t think they sell Bougois in the US. :(
