face & outfit of the day (it's been a while!)

I haven't really been doing FOTDs lately, because I'm not really loving any of my foundations right now - my NARS Sheer Glow is too light at the moment (and looking too matte?) and the Clinique Redness Solutions, which I actually love, just doesn't seem to photograph well.  Oh, and I decided I *HATE* YSL Teint Resist. It dries soooo powdery and blotchy and really emphasizes my pores. I'm always surprised to see so many people love it.  I'm also not loving my hair lately... I keep thinking about getting bangs again... hmm...

Anyways, today I used some products I haven't touched in ages (the blush products!) as well as some staples.  

FACE: Clinique Redness Solutions foundation (02 Calming Fair), YSL pressed powder, Illamasqua Katie blush, NARS Enchanted cream blush

EYES: MAC Sable (lid), Vainglorious (crease), Sand & Sun (under brows), Star Violet (lower lashline); MAC Superslick liner in On the Hunt, MUFE Aqua Eyes 18L (lower lashline/waterline), Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara, MAC Lingering brow pencil... and a pencil to highlight inner corners (I forget which!)... 

LIPS: YSL Rouge Pur Couture #6

JEANS: Torrid
SCARF: Target
CLUTCH: Forever21*
WATCH: Michael Kors
FLATS: Vivienne Westwood Anglomania + Melissa

The pic was taken in Forever 21, and I was "trying on" the clutch, but I didn't have anywhere to put it down to take a pic of my outfit, so.. there it is. Oops!  I was trying things on because I had something to exchange, but didn't really like anything.  Then when I went to the counter, I couldn't get store credit because their system was down (it was raining earlier). Annoying!

Luckily it wasn't a wasted trip (it never is, is it? lol), as I picked up a couple of things at Lush and Bath & Body Works (coupon!).  I'll show you my haul in my next post! Oh, and October favorites is on the way as well, of course. :)

See you lovelies soon!



  1. Cute outfit and your hair looks lovely in this photo! Everytime I see you wearing the YSL Rouge Pur Couture you make me want it!! xx

  2. Your skin always looks amazing! Great outfit!

  3. I got one of those scarves (one like it) and when I got home it was already snagged. :-(

  4. I love your scarf and shoes! And I totally know what you mean about not wanting to take FOTD pics for various reasons. Mine are either because I'm breaking out or my hair looks horrendous.
