outfit & face of the day

I had so much fun today (despite the mid-90's heat! BRUTAL!).  I did a quick trip to the mall (of course...), grabbed a few groceries, then it was off to Sex and the City 2 with one of my besties, Nicki.  I looooved the movie, and I'm actually looking forward to seeing it again next week with more friends! :)

Today's outfit was bursting with Target-ness, as usual!

Dress: Target
Cardigan (sheer lace): Rodarte for Target
Sandals:  Miss Trish of Capri for Target
Bag: Miu Miu
Ring: Topshop

My only stops at the mall were Macy's (MAC counter!) and Sephora.  I got to check out MAC's To the Beach collection, and I am loving it!  I picked up the Get-Away Bronze blush (thanks to Dara/BelleDuJourNYC's recommendation!) and Beachbound lipstick.  I also picked up Vegas Volt lipstick, from the permanent collection, which is a really pretty bright orange-y pink/coral.  Love! I have a feeling I'll be back for more from To the Beach... so many great products! My Marine Life highlight powder came in the mail today -- but it's too pretty to open!!

FACE: NARS Sheer Glow foundation (definitely my Holy Grail foundation), MAC MSF Natural, MAC Strada blush (as bronzer, dusted lightly all over face), MAC Get-Away Bronze blush (so pretty!!), NARS Enchanted cream blush (highlight)

EYES:  MAC Lingering brow pencil; UDPP in Eden; Urban Decay Muchness e/s, Jones e/s, Freelove e/s; YSL Ombre Solo #05 Slate Green e/s; Stila Topaz eye kajal, MUFE Aqua Eyes 20L (lower lashline), YSL Mascara Singulier + Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara

LIPS:  MAC Beachbound lipstick

I started the day (above pic) with the Givenchy In Vogue Orange blush, MAC Strada blush (as contour), MUFE 18L on the lower lashline, and YSL Rouge Pur 148 Tea Rose lipstick -- my makeup always changes mid-day when I go shopping! haha

Oh, and I did stop at Ulta if only to torment myself (didn't buy anything).  I am LOVING Essie's summer nail polish collection! It's officially bumped to the top of my wish list. :)

Okay, beautiful creatures, I'll be tomorrow to share my little haul with you.  Hope you had a great memorial weekend and are enjoying your week!
