June 2012 Favorites Face of the Day, With Video

I filmed several different things for favorites, but nothing was looking so great so I threw together this face of the day video featuring favorites this morning.

(video link here)

L'Oreal Infallible 24HR shadow in Pink Sapphire - I posted about this here not long ago, I am in love with this formula and color!  It's super easy to throw on your lid for a bright shiny pink sheen, using brushes or a fingertip.  I love how intense it stays over primer 14-16 hours, as fresh as the morning I put it on - even through muggy sweaty summer heatwaves.

L'Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner in Espresso - Also featured this in a several looks posted lately.  It's a nice neutral dark brown, doesn't go red on me.  It's a very cream formula, the brush it comes with is definitely usable and I do use it sometimes.  It's good for a very thin line next to the lashes especially.  It has good staying power, nicely pigmented and easy to work with.  And since it's a drugstore liner, you can work sales/coupons to get a good price!  Always love that.

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer - I love highlighters, as you probably know if you've been following me any amount of time!  This is a nice light beige gold highlighter, very shimmery but not glittery or super frosty/metallic.  It gives a nice reflective golden sheen (sort of reminds me of the Dior shimmer powder in Amber Diamond).  I got it also from hautelook.com - they have had theBalm products 2 or 3 times in the past 6-12 months at 50% off - an awesome deal.

My Ultimate Sweatproof Brow Combo!

  • Urban Decay shadow in Shakedown (matte, discontinued)
  • Anastasia Clear Brow Gel
  • Urban Decay Dew Me setting spray
So I'm a sweaty gal, let's face it.  And I spend 15-20 minutes outside walking to and from public transportation first thing in the morning going to work.  So, invariably, I will sweat some amount.  For whatever reason, I sweat a lot at the front of my eyebrows and would end up with a weird blotchy bald spot.  With the 80F+ at 7AM lately, I've been trying out products and combinations that would avoid that all so unpleasant spotty brow situation.  I found these three together will hold up to sweat, so awesome.  I only spray the Dew Me on the upper half of my face, it does seem to cause a little aggravation of acne if I get it on my chin.
