I know. It happened ages ago. But I still wanted to share what I picked up in the Sephora VIB sale. Because of reasons.

Review and FOTD: Surratt Artistique Eyeshadows

Affilier Acheté

I need to state this at the very beginning, just to make things clear because of how effusive this review is turning out: I am not being compensated at all for this post. In the slightest. I purchased all 6 shadows with my own hard-earned money. That said, I think the Surratt Artistique Eyeshadows are possibly the best eyeshadows I have every used. They’re at least up there in my top 3. (And I don’t even know what the other 2 are.)

FOTD: NARSissist eyeshadow palette in the field

Affilier Acheté

At long last, I have a look for you with the NARSissist eyeshadow palette, as promised. Though I have been featuring other products, I am getting a decent amount of use out of this. It was pricey, but I think it was a good investment. (There are just so many freaking palettes out there these days, with new ones released every week. It can make your head spin.)

Alright, as promised, here is my face of the day look with the gorgeous Illamasqua Neutral Palette. And since it was the poll winner, I threw in MAC Rebel Lipstick for good measure. Bronze-y/gold + purple = perfection. If I do say so myself.

Review: Illamasqua Neutral Palette

Affilier Acheté

I first ran across the gorgeous bronze-y, antique gold shade in the Illamasqua Neutral Palette in this post, and I pretty much decided then and there that it needed to be in my life. Then I got lured in by the Chanel Charming Palette (damn you, Lisa Eldridge [just kidding, I love you, call me]), and it drove all thoughts of the Illamasqua palette out of my head. Well, after returning the Chanel palette, I wandered over to the Illamasqua counter and righted this terrible wrong. And now this goodness is in my life.

P.S. See how much better my skin is looking?!

MAC Lady Danger lipstick. You knew I was going to break down and buy it, right? Well, of course. It’s such a standout color, I think, even more vibrant and attention catching than red. But I have a gorgeous look for you to incorporate it into your everyday makeup wardrobe.

Beyond basics—My everyday beauty routine

Salut tout le monde! Hi everyone! J’espère que vous avez un bon week-end! I hope that you’re all having a good weekend!

Continuing the request for my basic daily beauty routine, today I’m going to tell you nothing, because I am naturally beautiful and don’t need any makeup.

Ha, I wish! I really do envy those women who wake up and are just beautiful. I need to put a little more work in, but, hey, I also enjoy the process. If you have to do it, at least love what you do!

Disclaimer: I know it looks like a lot, but I don’t use all of the things pictured all of the time. So relax. 😉

I need to start with the 2 products I feel have really changed my life. With my oily skin, I have not only tried all the skincare I could to control my oil, I’ve also tried pretty much every mattifying and/or oil-free foundation out there. And then I read about Hourglass cosmetics and their Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation, I read the reviews, and I went to the Barneys counter to see for myself.
