fotd + the cutest baby i know :)

I haven't posted many FOTDs lately, because - not sure if I've mentioned this already, my apologies if I have! - the camera in my phone doesn't like taking pictures of faces right now.  It just can't seem to get the colors right. Product photos and swatches are fine, but for some reason, face pics have been a total pain. :\ Anyways, I tried to tough it out today because I was SO impressed with the payoff of the Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow quad in Moonlit. I couldn't recommend it more, especially if you like taupes and browns! 



Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation
Lancome Star Bronzer (matte) in Sunkiss
Stila Love at First Blush
YSL Metallic Colorama face highlighter
YSL Touche Eclat (under eyes)


Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze
Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow quad in Moonlit
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst
Maybelline Master Shape Brow in Dark Brown
YSL Faux Cils Shocking mascara


Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion lipstick in Imperial

A pic of the products used...

I had a really eventful week - I had three separate vet appointments for muh boys (one of which was Sammy's neuter operation - poor guy!), and then Thursday my best friend/cousin and her 8-month-old daughter Felicity came to visit me from Chicago! They just left yesterday and already I miss them loads! :( We had lots of fun during their stay, though - we went to EPCOT, Animal Kingdom, and did lots of shopping and eating of course!

I took about a thousand pictures of Felicity, and quite a few videos, too.  I thought I'd share some of my faves. Isn't she ridiculously adorable??

Alright, hope you all are enjoying your night! See you again soon, and thanks for reading!

  1. Gorgeous FOTD and beautiful baby! x

  2. I have missed your FOTD's, so glad to see your face again :)
    OMG that baby is gorgeous, I'm swooning! oxoxo

  3. Beautiful eyes- love those taupe colours. And what a gorgeous baby! xx

  4. Oooooh....gorgeous fotd!
    I love the Moonlit quad on you I must pick it up now.
    How do you like the Maybelline Color Tattoo products? I haven't tried them yet myself.

  5. Beautiful baby girl xxx.
    Love your FOTD as always - just wanted to ask what's your favourite highlighter? I don't have one in my collection and obviously need one!!!

  6. Thanks for your lovely comments, ladies!

    Georgia - OMG, I have been stalking your blog the past few days. I picked up the Tom Ford Burnished Amber quad and love it so much that now I'm wanting more... your post on Frantic Pink has it at the top of my list! It looks amazing on you! :)

    Leigh - I only have 3 (so far!) but I think they're amazing! I want to get the gold shade next. :) I definitely think they're as good as MAC paint pots!

    Vita - That's such a tough choice! I go back and forth amongst several. The YSL Metallic Colorama (pink-toned) was LE but it's definitely a fave. I also love Benefit Watt's Up (champagne) - it's so simple to apply! Dior's Amber Diamond (multi-colored, warm-toned) and TheBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer (champagne) are also great. TheBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer is easy to overdo, though - you only need a tiiiiny amount of powder on your brush! I like MAC MSFs, too, but hardly reach for them.

  7. Thanks! I think I'll go with Watt's Up cos it sounds like it's a good one for highlighter virgins like me! xoxo

  8. Love the pictures - I've watched those videos too many times to count! HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on hitting 500 followers! You should have a blog party!

  9. I'm SO happy to see your face!!! I always miss it, always. You look beautiful, as always. And, you're making me think I might need to try the LM Amethyst Cav stick..yet again. The baby is so freakin' cute, it hurts. Y'all are cute overload. Love you, my dear! <33 xxx

  10. Jess, you're beautiful!!!
    Can you please please please do some swatches of the D&G Imperial? It will be total exclusive on the Internet!!!

  11. Rachel - Oh god, you definitely need the Amethyst Caviar Stick - it is so, so good. At least give it a swatch when you see it. :)

    Vicky - I know what you mean - I Google-searched the hell out of it before ordering, but couldn't find a single thing! I just posted about it here. Hope the swatches help! I want to try Darling, too - it looks like such a nice peachy pink!

    1. Oh Jess! Thank you so much! I am so happy to see real swatches! WOW! Definitely need to order it through!

      Oh and i think you would love the new MUFE lipsticks Rouge Artist Natural!

      I picked up two colours: 40 - pastel apricot and from new La Boheme Collection called Boheme! Can't wait to play with them! If you want i can write to you when i'll get them cause i will post swatches on my blog!?

    2. Oh my gosh, I hadn't even heard of that line! I'm going to go follow your blog so I can see when you post swatches - they definitely sound like shades I'd love! :)

  12. Vita - Good choice! It's pretty much goof-proof, and great for throwing in a makeup bag! (Be warned, though - the cap on the sponge end tends to come off - argh!)

    Mama - Thanks! It feels unreal!!

  13. Love this post. Felicity is sooo stinking cute. What a delightful little ball of cuteness. Thanks for sharing her with us. Your cousin/BFF is a lucky lil mom. Take care, Jess!
