I sloppily applied my lipstick straight from the bullet.  I really need to learn to just do the right thing and use a brush!  I adore this lipstick.  It wore quite nicely and only dried my lips very minimally by the end of the day.  I touched up the center of my lips every few hours and after eating, of course.

The HD foundation surprised me because I didn't hate it.  I have not worn it in a long time and the last times I had tried it, I was really displeased with how it wore, especially in my t-zone.  It always got so shiny so quickly!  This time around, I did get a little shiny midday, so I used a blotting paper on my nose.  Near the end of the day I was shiny in my t-zone, so I used another blotting paper.  Otherwise, it was comfortable and looked really great.  I might keep playing around with it to see if I can come up with an even better combination of primer and powder.  And blotting twice a day isn't necessarily a huge annoyance for me.  My neck looks super white and even yellow compared to my face, in these pictures.  I can assure you that it was a really good looking match in person.  (I swear!)  Also, in my defense, pasty neck never looks its best when up against the stark black work shirt.

I want to try and wear more red lips.  I don't think I wear enough.  It's tough, though, since I love so many different lip colors and finishes!

Thanks for stopping by!

Please be kind. I'm happy to learn and grow, but it's also my face we're talking about! Also, no shamelessly promoting your blog or site here, please. Thank you!
