Philosophy The Supernatural poreless, flawless, tinted spf 15
I dig this stuff. It doesn’t hide everything, but it does give your face a soft focus (like it says on the back of the package), while providing some SPF. At first I wasn’t sure how well it worked so I applied it to half my face (don’t worry, I was home all alone) and the difference was pretty big. It’s a bit too dark for my pale skin, so I have to be careful not to apply too much. While it’s not a foundation, it’s a great “just need to leave the house to go to the library” quick product. Despite the $$ and the not-this-not-that nature I’ll be buying this again. Note: Some people react very badly to the silicone, so buy it somewhere you can return it if need be.
Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara
As a mascara, I like it a whole lot, but there are problems. The big fat brush confounds my early morning self and I always end up with a bit of it smeared around my eyelid. (Afternoon self can manage to apply cleanly.) It’s got the volumizing while still looking natural thing down, but if it’s a day when I apply my (Neutrogena Ultra-sheer) sunblock it runs almost immediately. Will be banished to use only after the sun has gone down.
MAC eyeshadow, in Print
Nicely pigmented, no creasing, no smudging. Might be worth the price, just the way everybody is always saying it is.
