Where is your dream vacation spot?

Review : Revlon Nearly Naked

ImageHello beauties! I was in need of some new face makeup and I thought I would pick up some of the new Revlon products. I grabbed the foundation and powder and hit the road, Jack!

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation
(retail : $8-9)

First up is the Nearly Naked Foundation. (Anyone else notice the lettering is similar to the Urban Decay “NAKED” font?) Mine is in the shade 150 Nude. It is about two shades too dark, but when blended out you wouldn’t know the difference!
Here are the facts about the product :
– It has SPF 20.
– Sheer but buildable.

There are many other benefits but I find that it differs for each person. For me it doesn’t break me out but I do get oily.

Revlon Nearly Naked Powder
(retail : $8)

Now for the powder. What can I say? I’m in love. That is if you can be in love with an inanimate object. Is that possible?

Anyway, this powder provides no coverage but matifies you and keeps your makeup staying on all day, even if you get oily!

So what’s the verdict?

FOUNDATION

4/5

                                                                                                                 

POWDER

My Everyday Makeup Routine

Hello all! I’ve been trying out some new makeup products and decided to tell you about them!

FACE

To start off I applied my Cover Girl Simply Ageless foundation in 125. I use one pump and dot it all over my face with a beauty blender. Then I continue to blend it in all over my face, neck, and hair line.

Next I used my Benefit Boi-Ing concealer in 01 and use this to conceal my under eye circles, and then apply the Loreal Natural Mineral Concealer.

Lastly, I apply the bareMinerals powder foundation all over my face with a fluffy powder brush to set my foundation, and the Wet n’ Wild Heather Silk blush to my cheeks.

EYES

First I apply my Urban Decay primer potion to my lids and then the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese all over my lids and blend it in with my ring finger.

Then I take W.O.S. from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette and apply that all over my lid using a flat shader brush. Then, using the tip of a flat shader brush, I use Faint and draw a line in my crease and then blend it in with a flat shader brush. To finish it off, take Faint and apply it to the outer corner and blend.

Then, using Busted from the same palette, take an angled eyeliner brush and apply that to your upper lash line.

Finish it off my curling your eyelashes and applying Loreal Telescopic Mascara.

LIPS

Apply the EOS lip balm to your lips and the Maybelline Twinkle lipstick.
