The Makeup ~ Currently Testing


Oh Hi August, when did you decide to stop by? I can't believe we are coming to the end of summer. I am absolutely not ready for summer to come to an end, but I am so excited for a few of the fall makeup launches! During my hiatus from blogging (coughs) I have been testing out a few makeup bits.

Lets just start with the elephant in the room, I mentioned the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation a few posts back. Clearly, I wasn't sold...yet. Flash forward to the present and I am all on board. First things first I needed to go down a shade, I am currently Rich Sand, (previously purchased Tan Sand...too light for summer, perfect for winter). Next up, I swapped brushes. The brush that comes with it, just wasn't doing it for me. I found it way too dense and it packed on the product heavily, not allowing you to properly blend it into the skin. Now I use my Sephora Mineral Brush, which works perfectly. In my opinion this is a great summer foundation, its light weight, has light to medium coverage ( I haven't built it up to full), blurs imperfections and just gives your face a beautiful filter. Not really sure how this will hold up when my skin gets a little drier once the weather begins to change, but right now I am currently using it non- stop.

Ok WOW! I did not see this release coming. Lorac, ooooo Lorac. You continually amaze the beauty world, with your phenomenal eyeshadow palettes, and this latest release is no different. You already know where this is going ladies and gentleman...I am in Love. I literally wanted to start testing another eye palette today...and ...I couldn't. All I want to do is use The LORAC PRO 2. I love it so much that I think I need to dust off my Lorac Pro. The colors are great, the pigmentation is lovely, the half matte half shimmer will always be a winner. Its just (catches breath)... you need it. Yes the shadows have quite a bit of fall out, just like the Lorac Pro, but the pigmentation and wear time make up for it. That Navy color is beautiful...(faints).

What have you recently purchased that you are testing out? Let me know in the comments!
