I’m here to show you the look I did for yesterday’s press event (if you missed that one please click here). I promised to show an FOTD with me sporting NARS Mexican Rose, and I wasn’t going back on that!
I’ll list the things I used that’s different from my regular line-up. I tested out quite some products yesterday. There was one major regret, but all the rest turned out fine!
Ellis Faas Skin Veil s103
Ellis Faas Concealer s203
Urban Decay Naked2 (Verve on lid, Suspect to contour, and Snakebite in the outer v)
MAC Added Goodness Fluidline (from Shop MAC, Cook MAC)
NARS Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil
Tarte Exposed on my cheeks, Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess to contour.
Let’s being by my one regret: the Ellis Faas Skin Veil s103 is the closest to my skin tone, but the undertone is so pink that it makes me look like Miss Piggy! I have only worn it once so I can’t comment an awful lot about this foundation. Skin Veil s104 is too dark for me at the moment, but the undertone would allegedly suit me better. Maybe I should mix the two shades and give it another try? Let’s wait till the pain of having worn a mismatching foundation has subsided a bit…
Other than that it was great! I need some more time to play with Naked2 before I can assess it properly, but Verve is a welcome addition in my arsenal because I don’t have many cooler-toned eyeshadows. It doesn’t make me look garish either, so that’s a big plus!
I will also swatch/review MAC Added Goodness soon. It is the most gorgeous gel liner I have seen, but I do wish it were more opaque. There was some building-up to do.
Mexican Rose just lasted and lasted till I struggled hard enough to remove most of it by the end of the day. However, with all the talking, the edges did feather a bit. If you plan to wear it all day when you have to talk a lot, you might want to pay attention to that!
Some more pictures so you can see the whole look better:
That’s probably as close as I can ever do a sexy pout lol
That’s my FOTD for ya! Did you see anything new that you want to have? I toyed with the idea of not showing the shameful mismatching foundation pictures with you, but again this blog is also a way for me to keep track of my progress, so please tolerate the oopsie!
I hope your week is going well! Happy hump day and I will see you around!
