Without further ado:
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder 001 Transparent $4
I never would have purchased this powder without hearing about it first from Hayley of Hayley is TCB. She's such a makeup prodigy! I trust products she recommends because I think she's quite the artist. I haven't been disappointed in this matte setting powder at all. It is an incredible bargain, doesn't make me break out or cause skin irritations, and doesn't make my skin appear paler. It really controls oil, as well, for hours! My only complaint would be the packaging, but at $4 I'm not complaining!
|Boo! Haunted powder!|
|03 Flash Light - the driest of the pencils|
|04 Photo Flash - really soft and moisturizing|
|05 Hot Flash - almost-dupe of Hourglass Siren gloss|
|Hot Flash topped with LE Milani Hot Flash gloss - even closer to Hourglass Siren|
|07 In a Flash - this one is really sheer. Used in a FOTD here|
|08 Star Flash - difficult to cover my pigmented lips|
Bath and Body Works Liplicious Lip Gloss $4 (Crazy for Candy Corn/Cookies & Scream) These are both yummy and glossy, but also sticky and I keep licking them off. If you can avoid eating them, they last pretty long because of the stickiness. I liked to wear them alone to feel festive or over the Milani Lip Flash pencils for extra gloss and moisture. I blame the Muse for featuring Bath and Body Works products so often -- you can only witness so much cuteness before you give in!
NYC Bronzing Powder in Sunny $2.99 for when I don't go after Too Faced Chocolate Soleil in my Sweet Dreams Palette. It's in my bathroom, handy for quick contouring when I'm running late (every day...), and a great bargain Stephanie C. from In Her Makeup Bag found. Thanks, Steph!
The blushes from Stila Travel Girl palettes, $14 per palette. I have several so they're running the gamut of shades I've been reaching for to complement my bold lips.

Do you go for comfy shoes and easy bold lips when you've got a busy month?
