I also had to attend a memorial service for a dear friend and former room mate who died a few days ago. I was only there for a short while as I had to come home early to pick up my daughter, but it was wonderful to see how many people he touched in his life. They couldn't even fit all the attendees into the venue. It was really moving.
But back to my shopping experience.. We hit up the Sephora in our local mall and I burned through my little gift card. And I think I found my dream foundation!!! I've only done swatches and need to do a more in depth review of the product, but I think this one's a winner. Yay! But I'm blathering on.. How bout some photos?
|NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Mont Blanc $44 USD|
I was going to show a picture of the foundation blended in, but it's barely visible. It matches my skin tone that well. And the coverage is sheer, which is perfect for me as I have quite nice, albeit a little dry, skin.
|Make Up For Ever Red Lip Set $28 USD|
|Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil in 8C|
|Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in 15|
|Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lip Gloss Star Collection in S8|
|From left to right: Lipstick, Lip Liner, and Lip Gloss|
|Tokidoki Eyeshadow in Soya $5USD|
|Swatched on bare skin, no primer|
|Sephora Long Lasting 12 HR Wear Eye Liner in Glitter Black $12 USD|
Also, Kate and Shannon were a huge help to me when I was looking for products (specifically the foundation) and it would make me so happy if you checked out their blogs. They have lovely reviews on TONS of products, and they're super in depth. They both plan on doing haul posts, and I will have the links up as soon as they get them to me, so expect updates on this one. :)
