Face of the Day! : Tuesday, October 7th


Hi guys!
I figured while in-between writing up my posts I’d put up a quick little blog snippet for the make-up lovers. I really like seeing ‘Face of the Day’ posts for different looks to inspire me from day to day. If you haven’t seen EmilyNoel83 on YouTube I recommend her! She’s your average make-up with a extensive collection and has such a great, trusted opinion! Here is her blog called Beauty Broadcast.

Being a little bit of a copy-cat, here’s the face I made up today!

So let’s start from the beginning…
The Face
Primer: Revlon Photoready primer
Foundation: Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation in Buff (applied with Elf Studio Stipple brush)
Concealer: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser in Fair (I believe?). Used NYC Transparent Face powder to set under eyes.
Powder: Organics Face Powder & Rimmel Stay Matte powder
Blush: Elf Baked blush in Wild Rose
Bronzer: Elf Healthy Glow Powder in Sunkissed

The Eyes
Eyebrows: Nyx Eyebrow Cake powder in Blonde with Maybelline Great Lash clear gel on top
Eye Primer: Wet ‘n Wild Fergie Take on the Day eyeshadow primer
Eyeshadow: (Inner) Wet n’ Wild Creme Brulee (Outer) L.A Colors…some tan shade. Descriptive, I know haha!
Liner: Jordana Fabuliner in black
Mascara: Maybelline Great Lash Lot’s O’ Lashes in brownish black.

Lips: Covergirl Outlast All day lipcolor in 507

I never realized how much I put on my face til I had to type it all out. Wow!

I had been wanting to wear a bolder lip since fall in officially in season! The cooler weather is helping my make-up stay on much better and I just feel far more inspired to try new make-up that makes me go out of my comfort zone. I had several compliments on my red lips today, so I must’ve made a good choice! However I only wore it for about 8 hours before I really felt the need to take it off…which was a hassle.

So, I hope you guys liked this mini post! Let me know if you want to keep seeing posts like this, or share anything that is on your minds!

Til then. God bless!

NYC Expert Last Lipstick: Coralista


WARNING: This blog post is definitely not Catholic related today! Haha! Sorry guys. But I do have some other Catholic centered blog posts ideas swirling around in my head, so don’t worry. 🙂

I really love reviewing products. I’m one of those people who won’t buy something unless I see that the product works for other people (for the most part). I tend to do a lot of research on the product before I buy it. Or I’ll buy something to try it out at the right price… a.k.a cheap, haha!

Today I have a little review on the NYC Expert Last Lipstick in the shade Coralista. I purchase this from my local WalMart for a $1.96 simply because I wanted to try a coral colored lip color.

 This lipstick has pretty good coverage. Do they stick to your lips? Yes. But they also rub off on anything and everything you eat as well. The color is nice, bright and bold, and it doesn’t take much to get full coverage! I noticed this coral went more towards the orangey side, but it wasn’t obnoxious in my opinion. It doesn’t dry out your lips.

Will it last 6 hours? No, probably not. I had to reapply some to get the bold color back after about 3 hours of wear.

This formula is a little bit creamier than most, which I’m going to assume is why they don’t dry out your lips too quickly. There is little to no shimmer in this color. The packaging is a little cheap. My particular lipstick has cuts in the stick of the product so I’m sometimes scared it’s going to fall out! But this isn’t the first time I’ve noticed that NYC has kind of…underrated packaging (my NYC concealer stick is the same way).

Overall, for under $2 I would say they’re decent! If you’re wanting to expand your horizons with lipstick shades to see what really works for you this would be a good brand to try that since NYC has a large selection of colors to choose from. 

What kind of lipsticks would you recommend to beginners who are experimenting with color? What’s your favorite drugstore brand of lip stick? Let me know in the comments! 

God bless!
