Tried and True & Tested and New

So I love makeup! And so I'm doing a series to showcase some of my favorites and my recent hauls all in one.  So in the first section, here are some of my tried and true makeup items that I am loving at the moment.

I have been loving my Sephora Microsmooth Baked Foundation, it hasn't broken me out and provides great coverage. You can't go wrong with Estee Lauder Double Wear! I have the light version and it is a really lightweight feeling but still has great coverage. I also have the concealer which has awesome staying power. I can't ever put on eyeshadows without primer.  I'll use the Urban Decay, anti-aging primer which helps a little with my crepy eyelids.  I also like using Jordana's 24 hour eyeshadow sticks. The color I use the most is almond cream.  I have two IT Cosmetics products I use everytime I put on makeup. I have the It Cosmetics' Bye Bye Redness cream which I use for my redness around my nose.  It does a great job cancelling the redness out. I also have the It Cosmetics' Bye Bye undereye corrector for my really bad circles under my eyes. Both are staples I always need.  Another thing I need is eyeliner.  I like liquid eyeliner and Stila Stay the Day is great.  It's easy to apply and doesn't fade.  On quick days when I don't have time to blend eyeshadows, I love using Maybelline's Color Tattoos. My favorite color right now is Creamy Beige.  I can't leave the house without mascara! I love Too Faced's Better than Sex mascara. It gives my barely noticeable lashes the volume it needs.  Now when I need something extra special when going out, I always reach for my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder palette. These are great highlighters!

Now onto some of the tested and new products that I have recently hauled.

So I've been on a kick lately with foundation. Three that I've recently bought to try out are Hourglass Immaculate, Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous, and Jouer Matte Moisture Tint. Still trying out Hourglass, I bought it for special occasions and there haven't been many for me to try out this foundation with so still on the fence with this one. Both the Covergirl and Jouer foundations are awesome for quick foundation coverage when I'm on the go. I have also been trying It Cosmetics' Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish HD mirco-powder. I've heard such great things about this powder. I've only tried it a couple of times and am liking it so far. I don't think it necessarily does anything about the look of my pores though.  I got a tube of Paula's Choice Shine Stopper in my Dermstore Blush Mystery Bag awhile ago.  It does seem to be a great primer that keeps the oilies away. I also got The Body Shop's Honey Bronzing Powder in 02 Fair Matte. It's a very light bronzer that I have been enjoying as a blush and all over color to give color back to my pale skin without looking too bronzed in this winter weather. I just recently hauled a whole lot of drugstore lip products so look forward to that in the next post!
