I went to Macy's to buy shoes, and I signed up for a Macy's card. (Uh oh!) BUT with good reason. I got a discount on cosmetics for the first 2 days I had it! So I bought some things. I mean, cosmetics are NEVER on sale. Not here at least. And what makeup junkie wouldn't jump at the chance? It's like being a kid in a candy store! =] Enjoy!
I was matched as having Blue/Red undertones.
I am Rose in liquid foundation and Level 2 Cool in mineral foundation!
Prescriptives Anywear Sticks:
I bought these to throw in my purse and I really like them! These came together in a package. I think it would be smarter on their part to just make 1 big stick instead of 2 little ones. Or at least have the option. I didn't really want 2 tiny ones but they work nonetheless. So far, no breakouts! They are perfect for on the go.
Prescriptives Flawless Skin Foundation (Rose):
This is now becoming my HG foundation. Because it's the perfect shade for me, it requires very little blending into my jaw line. I always blend makeup into my neck out of habit, but even if I forgot one morning, with this foundation you would never notice. It's even better than MAC Studio Sculpt for me. Also, my Beauty Blender along with this foundation gives me a great finish! The coverage is just phenomenal for me. It's medium-full and it does the trick! It stays on all day too. I admit, I use the Studio Finish concealer over blemishes, but I really like how this foundation feels. Like I said, RAPIDLY becoming my HG foundation! I've picked it up every single day since I bought it!
Prescriptives Mineral Makeup (Level 2 Cool):
I am officially done with Bare Minerals after trying this, and I never thought I would say that. The coverage and the color are everything I want in a mineral foundation. Like the liquid, this color blends right into my skin. It really gives me that "my skin but better" look. Not a cakey, powdery mess! I can barely use any product and get the coverage I want. You guys know me. I have acne scars and need medium-full coverage. You can use it lightly over your liquid foundation or use your 182 (or any kabuki) and wear it by itself. I am really in love!
Prescriptives U-Pick (Large):
Buttermilk (top left) Fire (top right)
Antique Gold (bottom left) Espresso (bottom right)
Brown Sugar Blush (bottom)
4 Eyeshadows and 1 blush of my choice?! Who can resist? Not only that, you can buy refills and switch colors out. This is absolutely the most perfect thing for me. I throw this in my purse and I'm set for a night out or a long weekend. The sections with the 2 eyeshadows can each be pulled out and be replaced with a blush if you wanted to. All 3 sections are as large as the blush section. The only thing that would make this more perfect is if they made a mini brush set to take with you too.
MAC Fluidline (Dipdown):
Not much to say about this because I LOVE fluidline. I just wanted a brown. I'm sick of always wearing black. There are some neutral looks where I just want a nice brown line on top.
MAC Prep & Prime Line Filler:
This makes my under eye concealer go on really nicely, but I don't know that it does much else for me. I know a lot of people rave about this product, but it doesn't do anything for me. I don't have many lines to fill. I've heard that some people put this on before concealer and some after. I've tried both ways and neither seems to make a difference on me. I also got Refined Zone (not pictured -- forgot! :) and I LOVE that. It's incredible! I wish it wasn't limited edition!
(DOUBLE WEAR COLLECTION)
Estee Lauder Shadowcremes
& Double Wear Eyeliners:
If anyone on here knows anything about me, they should know I love paint pots! I'm attracted to anything like them! lol Anyways, I picked up 3 shadowcremes in Ivory Lace, Antique Gold, and Golden Apricot. The pigmentation is incredible and they don't crease! I wore Golden Apricot the other day with a gold shadow on top and it looked awesome! They are very creamy and a little bit goes a long way! I also got 2 of the eyeliners in Coffee and Onyx. These take 90 seconds to dry and then they stay on for 15 hours. I have to say these are really awesome. My eyes water a lot so it's hard for me to find something to stay in my waterline. I really like to put the Double Wear in Onyx on and then put some UD 24/7 in Zero on top. It stays and it's more intense. Great collection!
