Lip/cheek Round 3! Julie Hewett

If you weren't already aware, I own a massive amount of makeup. Especially lip products, and cheek products, and every now and then I buy a special lady that goes both ways. *wink* This product by Julie Hewett, the "cheekie" cheek and lipshine in the color "Bette" is a delightful wonder. I first spied it on one of my favorite bloggers that I have been following since the days of livejournal, Keiko Lynn.  This color is sortof a dusty rose with a bit of a shimmer. Not overwhelming shimmery but just enough to give it some depth !

Other things on my face:

Benefit Cosmetics "they're real push up liner."
Anastasia "brow wiz" in ash blonde.
Too Faced "candlelight glow" highlighter. 
Tarte amazonian clay 12-hour concealer in the lightest color 
Maybelline waterproof cat eyes "colossal volum' express" with Rimmel "scandeleyes" layered on top.
Bésame soufflé foundation in "bisque"

Coming soon will be my review/post about about the Bésame cream rouge..

Bésame Cosmetics Wish List

Brightening violet compact

When I discovered the existence of the pressed powder I was super bummed out that I bought the loose powder, as it is known that I am terrible at using things that are loose powder. Also look how damn cute that compact is !

Black Cake Mascara
Black Cake Mascara
This I need solely to feed my curiosity. I had to watch a youtube video on exactly how this works, but it really looks like something I could fall in love with. There's something just so novel about being able to go through the very same makeup movements that some of my favorite silver screen sirens had perfected.

So it is true that I need another red lipstick like I need a hole in the head, but then again.... you can never have enough red lipsticks.

Portrait Pink Lipstick
Portrait Pink Lipstick
I think the first time I saw this lipstick was on instagram on @iddavanmunster, who is easily one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen.

Apricot Cream Rouge

Oddly, I wasn't able to properly locate the apricot cream rouge on the website, so please forgive my instagram shot. So I obviously need this product, as I so desperately love the classic cream rouge that they make. Also, it perfectly ties in with my cheek and lip jam(get it? Jam! Apricot!!) that I have going on.

Lip/Cheek Round 2, Jouer Cosmetics

blue hair don't care

Today's makeup !!

Tarte concealer on assorted blemishes and under eyes.
My coworker Belle's Pixie color corrector under my eyes. 
Bésame lavender loose powder. 
Jouer "peony" on my lips and cheeks.
Nars "Copacabana" high light.
My usual mascara and brow routine (see yesterday's post)
Benefit Cosmetics They're Real eyeliner; today I wore it without primer underneath to test it's longevity. 

jouer cosmetics peonySo I thought I would do a few days of showcasing my lip/cheek products ! 

This Jouer product is really a treasure. It's texture is like nothing I have ever experienced. It's application reminds me of playing with my mom's watercolors as a child. It's a touch drying on the lips, which I find common amongst cheek/lip combos like this, so I used the new Posietint Lipbalm by Benefit to keep it fresh throughout the day.

A makeup of the day post !

Today I have on....

they're real liner
Becca beach tint in "dragonfruit" on my lips and cheeks. 
Nars highlight in "Copacabana."
The random Marilyn Monroe powder from MAC that I forgot I owned.
Bésame soufflé foundation in "bisque"
Benefit Cosmetics they're real liner
Maybelline waterproof cat eyes "colossal volum' express" with Rimmel "scandeleyes" layered on top.
Anastasia brow wiz in "ash blonde," outlined with MAC studio finish NW15 concealer.

And set with my new favorite discovery for my incredibly dry skin: NYX Dewey finish setting spray ! 
they're real liner
My love for Becca products grows with each product I pick up. These beach tints are marvelous and a little really goes a long way. I went in to Sephora to get samples of the highlighters "moonstone" or "pearl," but after being forced into two different awkward conversations with workers, I ended up not realizing that the cashier hadn't put my samples in the bag and gave me some other weird samps instead. LIFE IS HARD. 

Anyway, I mentioned earlier a magic thing I just discovered with the NYX Dewey finish setting spray. Sooooo I don't know if this spray makes me makeup long lasting, but it DOES make me extra dry skin not be flakey and creepy. Despite how much I moisturize there is still a struggle of foundation getting flakey around my chin, but with this guy my skin looks damn good. 

Oh and this extremely fashionable crocheted headbandy thing? I made it. I am grandmas.
