What's On My Face Today

  • Wet'n'Wild MegaCushion Color Corrector in Green - Lately I've been seeing a little redness on my chin and around my nose. I wanted a corrector that was sheer, not too pigmented, and this fits the bill - the cushion lets me apply as little or as much as I want, and the texture is undetectable under my foundation. I like it.
  • Guerlain Lingerie de Peau BB Cream in 01 Light
  • Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer Creme in Light 1 - I've had some unusually severe breakouts this past week, so I'm forgoing my regular cream concealer for this lighter but sturdier one. Despite being called a 'Creme', it's actually more liquid than what I usually use, so it doesn't add much texture to what I'm trying to cover. The doe foot applicator helps me be more precise in my application, and once this concealer sets it doesn't budge, so I don't have to worry about my red marks reappearing in the middle of the day.
  • Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder in Mousseline Pastel
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in 500 Lush & Libido
  • MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly (eyelid primer)
  • Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Duo in 7daywknd/ Poolside - I've been using this palette as an eyeshadow duo for the past few days. The colors are so gorgeous, and they last all day without fading or moving. Today I'm just wearing the pink color - 7daywknd - on my lid.
  • Benefit Cosmetics Brow Zings Tame & Shape Kit in 6 Deep - This kit has a wax for shaping and a powder for darkening, each with their own tiny application brushes. The wax is tinted, so I often find that that's enough. I do have one brow that's slightly shorter than the other, so when I want to fill in some of the empty space I definitely use the wax with little strokes of powder on top. Once it sets, it holds all day - it's the best brow product I have for surviving sweaty summer days. This is one of my favorite kits for travel, too. I've occasionally had liquid brow mascaras separate on me when I fly - I suspect it has something to do with extreme temperatures at elevation? But with the solid wax and powder in this kit, I don't have that issue.
  • Buxom PowerPlump Lip Balm in Flushed

Today's Obsession: Beach Please from Fenty Beauty

Fenty's Beach Please collection dropped a few days ago, and the only product I ordered from it was one of the Killawatt highlighter duos - 7-Day Weekend/Poolside (metallic pink and violet). As gorgeous as all of the other highlighters and eye and lip products are, I feel like I'm a smidge too old to wear something that blingy and adventurous. In fact, I'm getting the highlighter duo to wear as an eyeshadow combo.

Today, though, I saw a couple of videos that have me rethinking my position, so I may go back and order the rest of the collection. Or at least a few more pieces.

I'm really loving the two pink-toned lip luminizers - Ready to Mingle (from Summer Daze) and Vaycray (from Summer Nights). The rest are probably out of my comfort zone. I wish they were packaged separately, because I really do not want to drop that money just to wear two out of the six shades. Everything else, though - the Island Bling eye shimmers and the other two foil highlighter sets - I think I could make work. Especially with that curved brush.

Take a look at these videos and see if they don't get you thinking about being a little more adventurous this summer!
